I think I see what you were trying to do , but it seems such a shame that to waste all the effort that the resolution fairies put into giving me a nice wide screen. Very retro though, looks like a badly adjusted CRT monitor. If this is what you were going for then all well and good, but were you? Really?
Other than that it looks cleaner so it's a good first draft. How about finishing it off before you unleash it next time?
