Unbranded wallpaper - Phoenix!

Post by Zwopper » Sun Sep 27, 2009 4:13 pm

I thought I'd do something without a logo for a change.
Here is - Phoenix!
As usual everything is done in the GIMP. (What else?) 8)

Hi Zwopper,

I can't see wallpapers hosted on deviantART while at work :( , so will have a look when I get home.

That aside, I bet it will be worth the wait. :D

OK Zwopper my friend,

I am sure that I can see a Fiery Phoenix making the shape of the number 9,
or double loops with the bottom one sort of edge on making the number 8.
Or might that be a Mortal Kombat type Dragon ?
Or how my throat might look after a particularly long nights drinking of some inferior whiskey ?
Or kids playing with sparklers on Guy Fawkes Night - UK :)

Or one of the ink type patterns my shrink shows me - oops :roll: , too much information :oops: :lol:

Keep up the great work, and no, I have not changed my mind, just lost it !!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Excellent work. Wish I had even a small fraction of your talent.

might i suggest messing with the Colors > Levels to make the color more bright also you could further adjust the overall image using Colors > Curve menu

:lol: Well, I did just that, but the opposite way, to decrease the brightness and heavy hue from the original image, while the image was more vibrant to begin with, it was unusable as a wallpaper - my eyes bled! 8)

Oh by the way, it's working, but the straight-jacket is a wee bit starchy for my liking. :P

I find that a 1x1 meter padded cell helps, as you can run back and forth till you pass out.
It also helps if the walls are red, so the stains doesn't show.
G'un robh math agad!

Tack min vän, du är för snäll.
Red är en av mina favoritfärger.
1x1m may perhaps be just too small for a good run.
I was thinking about 3x3m and get some speed up before whacking into the wall.

God hälsa för dig, AfterEight
