Some new darker wallpapers

Post by chickpea » Mon Apr 28, 2008 20:09

My first attempts at some wallpapers with the GIMP.

Darker wallpaper http://bryan_short12.diinoweb.com/files/Wallpapers/sabayon.glow.final.png

Lighter wallpaper http://bryan_short12.diinoweb.com/files/Wallpapers/sabayon.linux.logo.smooth.png

Take it easy on me as this is my first shot at graphic design, I'm an attorney by trade/nature :eye:

Any suggestions on how to make better wallpapers are GREATLY appreciated. I will do more as time goes on. I think this is one of the best ways I can (personally) help the SL project as I can't code.

Some more for your viewing pleasure

And hopefully this is "grunge" enough

I am working on making the corners frayed for this wallpaper so that it looks like old canvas frayed at the edges. I almost have something good. Will post back once I do. I would really like to make it wrinkled, wavy and frayed at the edges, but that really tests my GIMP abilities at this point. :oops:

Nice job, chickpea! I really like the textured one (the "grunge" one). The others are good too! :D
