Wallpaper & large image request thread. Individual large image requests belong here!

Would it be possible to get a Carey Price wallpaper made with the attached picture? You have a lot of creativity so something similar to the Bobby Ryan one or even something different would be awesome.

Thanks.

But without the lower half and the size is a tad small it may not come out as well as you and I might hope.

What would really help is if you knew the date they wore those jerseys. But I'm going to look now so I may find out before you get back to me.
Sorry just noticed your message, the date of the game was February 1st. Thanks again.

Couple questions..

What size is your desktop?

Where did you get that picture, is there any of him in full body shot, that is a fairly big size?

Did you just want a different Price picture with that stripped one blended into the background?

I could just go with whatever and see what you think if you aren't too picky.

1600 x 1200

I found this other picture, there are lots of pictures on the website habsinsideout.com if this one isn't big enough. I'm not going to be too picky so anything with Price will work for me.

Those are pretty sweet. Mine isn't that fancy, it is just a generic Oilers background that I was toying around with.

Sorry, I didn't use the pic you wanted. It was still pretty small and looked out of place when I tried to incorporate it. I hope you like this one instead.

I've just saw it on another website, that's pretty nice men. I would love it if I didn't hate the Habs.

Ovechkin. I can't remember exactly which brushed I used but they're called either "fresh foliage" or just "foliage."



Spezza. I used the grunge brush which I think comes with PSP.



Where did you guys learn to do this stuff? I don't really now how to do anything aside from brushes, and even then I don't know how to make anything fancy. Is there a good, sports-related, tutorial site?

Most brushes tend to come off as tacky.

Just blend stocks from sites like sxc.hu and flickr.

It's all about blending stocks for me. I have never used a brush for my wallpapers.

I haven't looked at any tutorials. Just self-taught through trial and error really.

I've been working on this today:



Not finished (I think). Does anyone have any advice on what I should do? Especially a reccomendation for a new font, that one doesn't look too good.

Like I posted earlier, just stick to stocks and blending modes.

I used two stocks for that one and I tried a bit of blending too (nothing that I intended ended up happening but the changes were still cool). I got kind of carried away with the lines though ( I was following a tutorial for that part). Is there anyway to blend his feet into the lines? I'm just kind of trying to figure things out, this one is already a lost cause.

Put the lines on top of him.

And I generally use anywhere from 10-20 stocks for a wallpaper.

They're great for building a background.

OK man, thanks for your help. I was looking around on that stock exchange site you posted but I lack the creativity to understand what the different images can be used for. I guess I need to try combining different things with no idea in mind to see what comes out. My problem right now is I have a goal to build an image for a car or a player and I shut out everything that seems irrelevant (which seems to be basically all the stocks). I never would have thought to use stars until I saw the price wall Snipeshow posted.

Anyways, thanks.

I don't have any pictures, but if you could make a San Diego Padres wallpaper using Jake Peavy, and/or Andrian Gonzalez, that would be awesome. My resolution is 1680*1050.
