I like it. Any chance you can make a bigger version available?
filling in for monuMental - if possible
This is my first time to do the diary thing because I figure I never have enough content that anyone would want or that deserved it's own space. Not gonna lie - little nervous. If this does not really fit into the diary parameters then I would not be offended by it's deletion. I'm also grown up enough to take the criticism often found on the MGoBoard.
Now to the point. Many of you are familiar with monuMental and his amazing artwork that can be found over at theartthearttheartdotcom. Most of you also know he will not be able to provide wallpaper this season because he has too much on his plate.
I'd like to say that I am by no means as creative as many others on this board and not anywhere near worthy enough to even touch monuMental's magnetic lasso tool. However, I was asked by a couple friends if I had any UofM wallpaper so I decided to give it an amateurish try.
This is what I came up with for the Under The Lights game. I wanted to keep it slick and simple so I imediately considered stadium lights. I recall the day Addidas previewed the throwback uniforms and went searching for those. Once I found them I thought of combining them and the lights idea. After many different attempts and changes I simply came back to the clean look I landed on and added the UTL official logo. Thoughts?
That's what she said!!! wocka wocka wocka, spinning bowtie, sprays seltzer out of flower on lapel
Personally I'd get rid of the text on the left of the M player (unnecessaryy info, and it ruins the symmetry), but very cool otherwise
Agree with the symmetry statement but you could take it and put it as a single line of text across the bottom.
This link will get you a download that is 1024*768 and also puts the text left of the M player centered.
Broken link, indeed :(
Looks great, and thanks again
I see you have an affinity for photoshopping Lloyd pictures in that album hahaha
oh. uh. yeah. That all went back to one single moment/thread in time where the MGoBoard went all Lloyd Brady on here. I was board that day and tried a few takes myself. I'm not very good at this photoshopping thing but know just enough to come out and play occassionally.
Looks great. Maybe change That school in Ohio to just Ohio
...or maybe tUOS.
Or even 'An Ohio State University," since there are other State Universities in Ohio and aren't they all on about the same level anyway? Why should Tattoo U get sole possession of the "The?"
(yes, I know, it's also "The University of Michigan" but we've never seemed as anal about owning the "The" as the those other guys are)
I always write osu, nd, and msu in lower case.
Keep these up. Nice quality and my desktop for a week.
You might want to flip the schools, as it is typical that the home team is listed second. The way it is presented right now it looks like it is M @ ND.
That's the way they made the logo. Maybe they're European soccer fans.
Really small nit-pick here, but the shadows falling from Denard's legs don't quite match the lighting as well as Te'o's do. I would try adding an 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock shadow to his legs.
Nothing complex... just a little dodge 'n burn in photoshop if you have that capability.
That's awesome! Maybe include the score for the past games?
Is there any way you could make it fit widescreen monitors?
Amazing! Keep them coming. I think I speak for everyone when I say "Thank You! We really appreciate it!"
One small (maybe) request: is there anyway to get an iPhone backround too?
Our throwback uniforms >>> ND throwback uniforms
Also - love the concept.
Also Teo's arms really that ripped - they seem odd (doctored) - though I'm guessing that is what Addidas provided and not really the OPs doing.
Sweet as hell I love it
This looks great. I will put it as my background. Go Blue!!!
Nice work. The lights look fantastic and the placement of the event logo is perfect.
