I've got a monitor, and most of you do as well, so wouldn't it be nice to put up a wallpaper for TSG?

So I would like to ask for some wallpapers from our very talented artistic community. :D

I'll take submissions and put them up in their own category in the Fan Art, and maybe link directly to some in a post on the blog.


Here are the requirements:
- They must be big, for high resolution monitors. 1680 x 1050 widescreen, 1600x1200 standard.
- Making a version for both widescreen (16:10) and standard (4:3) is ideal, but not required.
- Save in a high quality format, i.e. PNG-24.
- Upload in this topic (current file size limit is 4 MiB), or email the file to fanart@thespeedgamers.com AND post here.
- Please don't just copy and paste images, put some time in to it for nice quality.
- The subject can be for any marathon, past, present or future, with or without dates and info. Alternately anything related to TSG is welcome.


There is no deadline, or time restraints. This is perpetual and relates to no specific marathon. I just want to see some awesome wallpapers, and make them available to everyone.

Sounds like a great idea :)

And so the chosen content is supposed to be able to be up and downloadable for privates?

Simply a place in the site that allows private users, like us, to download the possible wallpaper content on their systems, and use them, as far as I took the thing now. And if not, could it be a possibility? Despites the fact about using people's posted wall papers on the actual thread there, which does and doesn't sound a good option.

I still don't really understand what you're asking, but I will upload all (or most) the wallpapers to a category on the Fickr account. You would see them on the Fan Art page, and anyone will be able to download the full resolution for their own use.

Yes, I actually weren't asking for anything but for that info, like you defined. The thing I meant were just like that, they'll be put up there. Sorry for the inconvenience :)

Silver, I think you'd want to resize the image to fit the requirements. I like it though, nice and pretty dark, as I'd like it to be.

Hmm that's weird. It added that when I exported as a png-24. Oh well, its fixed now.

Yes it is, I used it becaues I think it looks better as a background, that and I have yet to find a good pic of there logo that I can use

I have a great idea for a background! I have to get back into using PhotoShop, though. It's been a while.

I love it Ana. I may need to change that as my new wallpaper, but I like my current one. But what the heck, those look awesome. :)

Finally a real (non-sample) wallpaper!!! Thank you Anatotitan.

I was messing with your banner just last night, to make images for other sites, and liked it very much. This is perfect. :D


I have uploaded your images to TheSpeedGamers Flicker, and created a Wallpapers section (http://www.flickr.com/photos/thespeedgamers/sets/72157620469896330/) in it.

Here are my two wallpapers regarding the metal gear solid marathon. It has the hat in it, I really didn't think the date was necessary due to the marathon being over >.<;;

Wide screen. (http://kat-chai.deviantart.com/art/Metal-Gear-Solid-TSG-wallpaper-127090945)

Standard (http://kat-chai.deviantart.com/art/MetalGearSolid-TSG-wallpaper-2-127091526)

For some reason when they were in full view they weren't letting me get the picture info from the left click so I just linked them. I'll come back and edit them if the issue corrects itself.

Gwellin
06-24-2009, 01:22 PM
Some more? Thanks Baka! They have been uploaded. :D

So I made wallpapers of the TSG Logo idea I had. I posted it on my art thread, but in case no one read it, the concept is basically a controller for some random gaming console with a clock in the center.

A very simple background I created for all you high-res users, I'm on a 1440x900 Widescreen 19" Samsung SyncMaster myself :).

It's really simple and I'm still learning GIMP so be nice :D

This one is incredibly simple. I made for myself with Illustrator and Photoshop and I figured I share with everyone.

I have added both of yours to the TSG Wallpapers (http://www.flickr.com/photos/thespeedgamers/sets/72157620469896330/) set.

Now, does anyone have something for the Mega Man Marathon? ;)

Samuraiiuk
07-30-2009, 05:10 PM
Thanks for adding mine, Gwellin!

I'll try and do the same thing I did last time with the FF Marathon, make a piece with GIMP for every day, since the Mega-Marathon will be 3 days though, I'll try to make them higher quality.

:)

is it possible to have a background with a clock built in it that keeps actual time? that would be a cool addition 2 these backgrounds

that would probably work better as a screensaver, in fact I've got one like that, just from a different site. I'd like to see one from here though

After working on this on and off for more than a month, I finally got it scanned onto my computer and got it coloured. From left to right the guys are Local, Gwellin, Chase, Britt, Phil, Rob, Baltes and Gengar. I think that's enough people for a wallpaper, I'll probably add to it another time but I'm happy with it. :)

Gwellin

Well, since someone suggested it, I figured I'd upload something I created the other day in a wallpaper resolution. Somewhat plain, I know. The original version included a character of mine, but I figured since it really wasn't related to TSG in any way, I should just take it out. But anyway! Here it is:

Widescreen

Standard

I hope I followed the criteria correctly. Let me know if there are any changes I should make. Happy Holidays, all!

12-14-2009, 11:39 PM
Thanks, Kyle! I made it in Autodesk Maya 2010 edition. It's a 3D modeling / animation program that I've been using for school. It's a really great piece of software. If you're interested in the 3D field, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try.

Yeah, I've tried messing with 3D stuff and all I ended up with was some very simple shapes with only a solid color, but if I can get Autodesk I'll definitely try and learn again.

Once, again nice job on the wallpaper.

Whoa! That's some awesome work!

At school, I'm using Autodesk SoftImage. But GOOD IDEA. Now I'll start thinking about making some 3D Wallpapers!

Thanks, fredy! Although I haven't used softimage myself, I've heard good things. I believe that 3DsMax, Maya and Softimage are very much alike in terms of content, and those three programs are quite common among most studios out there. Anyway, very cool! I look forward to seeing your future work! :)

I just think it's a shame if none of the TSG wallpapers ever get made.
