    .::GBAtemp Themed Wallpaper Thread::.
    Last Updated: October 30, 2008

    I haven't seen anyone take up a GBAtemp wallpaper project so here, in this thread, I'll try to keep them organized. If you've got a GBAtemp themed wallpaper and want to add it, don't hesitate post them here.

    The GBAtemp mascot logo can be found in this thread thanks to jumpman17.

    NOTE: If this type of thread already exists, please tell me and I'll cancel this project.GBAtemp Warm Blue

    Another blue type wallpaper featuring a starburst. A bit brighter for those of you who like that kind of thing.

    GBAtemp Pirate Ship

    One requested by Doomsday Forte. A simple pirate ship... which does not condone the use of piracy in any way, shape or form. It's a pirate ship of legality.

    Copyright Notices: Blah blah blah, do whatever you want with my wallpapers. I won't include my name on the wallpaper so you don't have to look at my moniker on your desktop (or just save you the trouble of editing it out). Just try not to take credit for the stuff I do and I'll be down with that... and if you do, I'll take that as a compliment.

    Other members may have other views for their own art, so please ask first when dealing with other members.Special Thanks:
    jumpman17: For creating the mascot gbatempkid logo (or at least making it available in high-quality.

    i'm not sure about wallpapers where the gbatemp logo is the main feature of it - just seems wrong somehow
    if you look at a typical page of gbatemp the logo is fairly small and at the top
    thats the kind of thing that works for me or maybe its just what i am used to

    Yeah, I tend to have pretty 'bland' wallpapers for myself. Call me a minimalist / clean freak [​IMG]

    Ok, just made one, have other ideas, i can resize this to any size, but i'm curious who would want one of these wallpapers.

    Also - Suggestions and Critiques are very welcome, so please lemme know!

    (just a small sample, if others want it, i'll resize as requested [​IMG])

    EDIT: ...as a "small sample" that is the full wallpaper, just shrunk down for example usage [​IMG]

    Updated for a little pirate ship.

    Also, had to take down the 1680 by 1050 size ones because tinypic doesn't seem to let me keep them at the res (they resize it!)

    Transparent fill colour and stroke?

    The ship... I got that from google. Had I NOT been lazy, I would have done the outline in black using the pen tool and, in layers below the outline, colour it in.

    Oh! Get out the ol'Magic Wand selector, set the tolerance to pretty low, select the black outline. Copy paste to a new image, now you have just the outlines and everything else is transparent. To make it white, use the invert effect.

    Transparent fill sounds a lot like... an eraser [​IMG]
