    Made a wallpaper you want to show off?

    Not you pro folks, just us novices.

    Anyone have a wallpaper they made they want to show off? I have two, both of which use other people's picture stuff, and all, but still, it's not like I'm using it anywhere but on my computer...

    First one is a portion of Africa that has so many craters (a lot of impact ones, too) that I thought it looked like the universe used it to stomp on when it got mad.

    The second one is gnome walking on the moon.

    any of you novices out there have anything to show off?

    those are really good

    are you using photoshop?
    if you are, try sphere-izing the layer with the feet, on the second pic.
    that way, the feet kind of "wrap" around the moon, making it look more real and 3d

    Thanks, both of you. That was done in Gimp. I'd have done much better in photoshop, but I'm trying to get my feet wetter in Gimp. Funny thing about the first one, half the time the footprint looks like it's an imprint, the other half it looks like it is raised. The shadow's all wrong, but it just fit better where it was. I found some stuff in Gimp where you could do some semi circular distortion, but fumbled on all of them.

    I actually did this one before I installed Linux, but it is still one of my favorites. The candle glow was added in Gimp.

    I just found out about gnome-look.org, so I submitted it there. Then I stumbled here. 1 wallpaper, 4 variations. Made this for my photoshop final, 100% vector so resisizing it wasn't a problem.

    @ AAM - I have to say, out of all of these that your brushed brass/gold effect shines out to me as the winner - fabulous design - well done, I can't say WHY I like it, but it just looks really great!.
