Okay, I want to start a little gallery of spoofs of the default background of Windows XP, bliss. (I have nothing against Windows or Microsoft, I love them. It's just that Bliss is so easy to minipulate, that it is fun .)
Actually, I haven't even started mine yet, but I have some good ideas. Obviously, you can find Bliss in a Google Image Search, if you don't mind borrowing them from some unknown person.


This isn't intended to be a contest, so please, no harsh compitition, let's have good attitudes. :D

P.S.,
If this turns out well, maybe we can do this agian!

P.P.S.,

Edit: I'm kind of new to Paint.Net, so I don't expect mine to compare well with others. I just thought this is a goo idea! Remeber, this isn't a contest!

Okay, here is mine. And I did use someone's starfield tutorial, and I give credit for that to them.
I know there are other ones that show it as nighttime, but this is one I made:

Firstly, a way to access it on your system:

(This works with winRar, I know...)

Copy C:\WINDOWS\I386\bliss.jp_ to a different directory (like your desktop).

Rename BLISS.JP_ to BLISS.gz.

Now open the zip with winrar, and you should see "Bliss.jpg" inside. Copy this to a safe directory, and edit!

And as an edit, my parody:Posted Image

See the resemblance? (View Halo 3 trailer if you have no idea...)

EDIT: The format looks now like gzip; I edited above accordingly.

Another way, you can just go to C:\WINDOWS\Web\Wallpaper\Bliss.jpg and copy it to a new directory. I think that's a little easier.

Edit: Also, nice parody. None of the edges are aliased. I want to make one, but I don't have any ideas on how to edit it.

Great job, guys. Wow, Halo never fails to pop up everywhere. It is the most over-rated game of all time, and it has the award for the most useless gun in all gaming history: the Needler. But, hey! It's my favorite game of all time!

And as for killing some aliasing, I used my quickmask layer, blurred it, and magic wanded the color and transparent areas with tolerance = 0.

Teo: Funny. I want to see sonic on there...I'm too lazy to do it right now myself.

P.S.,

The explosion is supposed to be BEHIND the hill, not on it. I'm just not sure how it looks.

Is that what happens when you mix Combat Flight Simulator and Napa Valley?

Nice photo. You achieved the right effect, IMO.

Yeah, but I still think that the explosion looks like its coming from on top of the hill, not behind it. I think I'll tweak it up a little later.

Do you know that that background in the PT version of XP is called "Alentejo", which is a "land" of Portugal.
