Die hard E7 fan, huh? :wink: WHO ISN'T?! :awesome:

Has anyone made their own? not that I'm complaining... But has anyone made one?

I did these just under a year ago:

Never quite finished the second one... needed to fix the lighting and make it look less weird with real images. Que Sera, Sera.

For the first one,

here's the original scan: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/385315

I wish I could draw like that. I used brushes for the katana/grunges I acquired from deviantart. I then created a simple little KEEP-OUT tape similar to the one Mifune has in photoshop. After a few duplications and transformations, voila! I also nabbed a screenshot of Medusa and that freaky moon.

Here's the original scan for the second one: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/479447

It's comprised of free stock photos from deviantart. Tried to get a variety of images to create that Arabian Nights feel. Here's a list of some of the images to give an example:
Carpet
http://shoofly-stock.deviantart.com/art ... arpet&qo=4

Lamp
http://digitalcircus-stock.deviantart.c ... +lamp&qo=4

Sandstorm
http://toomuchfilth-stock.deviantart.co ... storm&qo=1

Purple Stars
http://maithiranstock.deviantart.com/ar ... stars&qo=9

Used some other brushes but I forget which :nose:

Could of extracted the scans better too :oops:

I dislike the fact that the character on the left gets covered, but I can't do much about it, I hardly ever see the wp anymore these days and having the bar on the left is just much better for my needs and I got used to it. >_>

Don't normally see much of anyone with their taskbar on the left side.

I dunno if mifune and medusa go well in the same picture together... but it looks awesum either way. I blacked out medusa and the wallpaper has a lot more focus. I tried a B&W version of it too, but there was a lot of noise added (my eyes didnt know where to look). The color really helps to separate the objects.

Overall, you did AWESOME with the mix of pix.

All these single displays make me wheep. I'm looking for a new BG though, if anyone has any good recommendations for 6960x1080 [3x 1680x1050 1x 1920x1080] I'd gladly take it.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any that specific resolution. These are freakishly huge though, sporting a 7680×4800 resolution. You would have to make an account, however. I tried to upload them myself to an image site, alas they were too big.

I could also take one of those monitors off your hands. You would have an easier time finding wallpapers :asd:

That character with the blue/green hair is wearing some nice cans - AKG K701 White version. I'm more of a Beyerdynamic guy though.

Rocking AKG's myself atm so it seems appropriate enough. I'll give these a whirl see what sticks.

I'm partial to my Sennheiser HD555, but when I saw the green line of Quincy Jones AKGs... I immediately fell in love.

Right now I'm going for 'gloriously minimalist.' So far, it has actually forced me to be better organized and has increased my work efficiency and use of newer Windows 7 features. :wink:

The background image is a screencap from Maaya Sakamoto's 'Universe' music video (30minutes night flight) and I have to say it looks really good for a DVD.
