I GIVE UP ON HATING WISCONSIN
So, a couple years ago, monuMental made an entirely amazing wallpaper for the first UTL game. Being a large fan of monuMental's work and contribution to the blog, I modified his version for post-game purposes (the preview pics are gone but the Skydrive link should still work).
Please note: the above is only a preview version and you should download the widescreen version here. (Yes, I am lame and only did one version.)
Thanks again to monuMental and all credit really belongs to him for the original art and concept.
I'm a big fan of monuMental's work and really enjoyed his last wallpaper. In the event that we won, I asked his permission to alter it a bit and quickly came up with
this image these images tonight (including one eliminating the text in the center):
I don't have a great way to share the full resolution image yet, but if someone is very interested in having it then let me know and I will figure it out. Here's a photobucket link to the album - The images should be 1920 x 1200 resolution, but alas they were downsized by the Man. So here's a Skydrive link, that works better.
In case the above link bites, here is the text version and the no text version in 1600 x 1000 resolution. If all else fails, please leave a note here with a real or fake email for me to send you the full resolution image until I figure out something better.
As you can see
it is these are still a bit rough around the edges. I encourage you to look closely at the stitching monuMental did around the block "M" in the original!
Cheers and thanks to monuMental!
<< EDITED: added no text version and links - please let me know if they don't work >>
<< EDITED 2: New links for better resolution images >>
This came across my twitter feed from @thearttheart about an hour ago...
"Good News: Michigan football in 6 days. Bad News: No weekly wallpapers this season unless you can upgrade my daily allotment of 24 hours."
I'm devastated, as I'm sure many of you are as well. Angry Michigan Photoshop Artist Hating God has struck with a vengeance.
This is a call to MonuMental, who charmed us all last season with his outstanding Michigan Football opponent themed wallpapers. It's been a long off-season, and as September 3rd approaches, I wondered if we might see more of these coming our way.
MonuMental, I (hope I) speak for the rest of the MGoCommunity when I say we eagerly await the newest installment to your already sterling portfolio of impressive works.
