Desktop wallpapers

category: general [glöplog]
Just an idea: maybe it would be nice to post some demoscene related desktop wallpapers.

I've thought in mixing some objects appearing in different prods. Also it would be nice to have a high quality/high res screenshot of Elevated, for example.

What do you think? I'm going to try to do something as soon as I have some free time.

mhhh.. How about a good bsg wallpaper?
While trying to show how I wanted the lighting for "Barcelos" to be like I felt like making a wallpaper for my laptop out of it.

Pretty unknown and irrelevant but here it is:

Please don't let this thread die. It has so much potential!

I had this cool project of printing a few selected screenshots on photo paper with the size of a polaroid, and hang them around my room. It was aborted due too lack of ink. It would be funny to continue doing it and take them to parties and ask for ppl to sign them :P

Cool thread :D

Actually not the kind of wallpaper I like at all, but it's awesome to see really high res/quality pics from demos. It takes away some of the beauty of the pictures as you see every fault and glitch, but it's great to see in detail how it's made so I think you gain as much as you lose.

This link has some great backgrounds that LOOK like scene stuff but they're not....just some fantastic graphic design :)

I made some (noob) background/artwork pics for my first intromission project some time ago:

I have it CDC'ed so I guess I've seen it, yes ;)

Well, not that those pics were inspired by Tokyo but I'm glad you remembered it. It started as an afternoon experiment combining basic forms in Bryce and turned out to be a nice scene to release an intro about and make an artwork for the 4k-mixtape project :)

iq: omg
iq: any versions for non-widescreen (e.g. 5:4) monitors? black bars = ungood :(

gargaj: why not cropping?
it IS 16/9 not 4/2.25.

At least that's what happens in CG. In cameras it has to do with the diagonal size.

you cant crop the ixaleno pic without fucking up the detail on either side.

iq you rule.
Gargaj: just crop it to the right ratio, it worked for me well enough, and no black bars anywhere...
