PostSubject: GDL Wallpapers   Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:20 am

After a brief google image search I couldn't find any Gray Death Legion Wallpapers. I know we have some decent image editors in the guild so maybe we could get a few custom desktop wallpapers going for the Corp?

I'm not especially good with editing images myself but I decided to try anyway. I found a medium-sized image of the GDL logo and edited it a bit (had some white around the edges to remove) and doubled the size. Unfortunately I still don't like how the edges look. Here's what I got:

Spoiler:
 

I know it isn't standard wallpaper sized but I just set it to center and make the background black. It looks decent but the edges still bother me. If someone could fix that issue (or tell me how to do it easily) I'd appreciate it.

I look forward to seeing more Gray Death Legion Wallpapers.

Thanks Malagoth. Very Happy

Today I noticed that Havoc's forum avatar doesn't seem to have the discoloration around the edges of the logo. So despite how small it is I took it and scaled it up anyway. The result looks decent. Just save this and in your desktop settings set your background to black and center (don't stretch) the image.



Looks much better than the other one I made.

When I stop being so lazy I could probably cook something up with the repainted concept art, if that's something people would like.

Oh I dunno about genius. I figured some people might want all the 'mechs as a wallpaper, and then it looked like a recruitment poster as well so, hope it works!

Love the work storm, reminds me to order a new waccom pad old one got busted, small thought with recruitment poster, this is just an idea you might want to try sometime. the man in the forground pointing the gun can you change that hand to instead of using the gun to point to the saying with, to use an open hand or stick (we beat dead horses with in MWO forums. Very Happy) . Other small thought would be move the figure up so it looks like his foot it ontop of the grey plank, lets call it, and then just continue the right leg down to make him appear that he is standing. Something to try after you do those 2000 other special mek skins your doing for people.

Something I stumbled across and found to be *amazing*

A deviant art artist who's pretty damn impressive and has done a wonderful rendition of the Marauder!

Behold!!



Here's a direct link to his Deviant Art. Click Me!

<S> See y'all soon!

Wow, that looks impressive indeed! Shocked

Something to definetely influence Alex Iglesias when he'll have to render the Marauder for the MWO.

Post the image in the Suggestions subforum and attract their attention. Wink

The Hodag and especially the Norseman looks EXQUISITE!!
Boy that Norseman looks good!!!!! Shocked

These are sweet! Anyone know if there are any MW themes for the PS3? I've looked but can't find any!
