Image Umbrella: Desktop Art


Recommended Posts

This is one that I did after seeing a commercial for a show about a firefighter. A few of my buddies are firefighters and we all like science fiction movies. I had been doing stuff for a club I'm in all week (Dead Possum Society) and was in a Possum mood, so this is what popped out that night. Both of these are reduced from the original but not by much as I have a pretty small laptop screen that I'm working with.

I was going through a tutorial on here the other night and I just couldn't get it right. I was tired and frustrated so I started messing around with some of the stuff in the tut and one thing led to another and this all came out of one accident after another.

Here's what I've been working on today.

I'm going to animate it and hopefully even create a theme. :)

(I even made my ringtone)

Oh WHOOPS.

I Love it. The use of the circles, the color effects, and the line designs for the sand really are amazing. It is sharp here and there, but overall, great work. :D

I agree, just wonderful

Wow Kemaru, I love your whole "Beachy" theme. Its a lot better than anything I could do! :)Im not very educated in the whole PdN system, but to improve your image you could soften the photo a bit and somehow make it seem as though the sun is shining on it. Just some advice :) Ill try my hand at a desktop :)

They really look nice :D . Well... exept the red one. I wouldnt want my desktop to be so white :lol: .

I really want to know how you made these.

All of that was made in paint.net, I used dents for the smoke wisps.

Most of that was just a lot of smudging.

You can play around with color flip/rotate to get the color you prefer, but I didn't want to post a dozen images. :D

nice ones. i really lyke that black and white one, it seems to fit that pattern the best. that third one stands out too, the transition is softer than on the rest (imo that's a good thing).
