|14 min 18 sec ago||This was all done exclusively||
This was all done exclusively in Photoshop. I used work paths, along with a custom brush I created to make the somewhat threaded look (it still needs work), and then used layering with various embossing effects to create the feeling of depth. I then did some shadowing work to make it pop a bit. Honestly, the logo alone took two hours (I was experimenting - first time doing this effect), so I'm honestly not sure of the exact order of everything. It's very rewarding to get it to look the way you want. The actual vintage logo (the unfinished/un-stylized version) that I used as reference is obviously NOT my creation.

Just noticed this - are you leaving room to edit in the scores of each game on the sides? Is that what I'm looking at? If so, that's a cool concept for a wallpaper. I'm going to try my hand at a simpler design that I could do something similar (scores) and see how it turns out. Kudos!

I saw Superstar and have it installed. I wasn't sure it was identical, but it sure does look like it now that I take a second look. Thanks, man.

I like the wallpaper. I don't have a vertical setup, but if I did, I would make use of it. Do many people on here use a vertical setup? If so, I'll need to start making that a format for future wallpapers.

You're still paying for the services. Unotelly simply does a good job of convincing your computer it's in another country. Again, I'm not arguing whether or not it's MY preferred method, but for those who are looking for a way to subscribe without being in another country, this is it. Gamepass is $150-200/year. The aforementioned BTN2Go International will cost you, as well. I personally use whatever I can find, but since the OP was suggesting this route, I thought I'd suggest an alternative in the same vein.

Good point. I'll have to see about adjusting for that.

A really good location-spoof service is unotelly.com. The difference is that it is subscription (monthly @ $5) and it connects at higher speeds than a lot of other services. Using that you can also get NFL Gamepass, which is awesome.

These are all amazing. Thank you!

It's been crazy busy for me, but you get your wish. I did tweak the design (ok, so I changed the text) a little bit to accommodate the android dimensions you provided. Hope you like it.

Winning cures all. If they win in them, people will come around. Part of the reason we hate most (if not all) of the alternate jerseys we've seen recently is that they're tied to devastating losses. For me, I love seeing the UTL jersey with the big M on the chest because it reminds me of Irish tears and people rocking in the stadium for an hour after the game. Had that ball fallen incomplete, I'd probably hate the sight of those jerseys. Just win. That's all I want. Beat Penn State.

Sorry you didn't like it. It does indeed look like a bomb on the mobile app until you click the image and it stretches out. Outside of that, I guess my response would be that Art Deco is more about style than anything. Any ideas?

Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate all the feedback.

What are your phone's wallpaper dimensions. I will try to make as man variations as I can to accommodate my MGoCommunity.

Honestly, after I finished I thought to myself, "damn, I wish is made this in print resolution instead of web..." Looks like a redo may be in the works. I'd love to get this onto canvas, myself.

Any slogan could go there since it's just text without styling. I will try to make some alternates. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'll do an alternate version without them to see how it looks.

Yes. I'll make a mobile version when time permits (aka the wife and kids are asleep and I can think).

I appreciate the defense (both of my theme and of our country). I'm glad you like the wallpaper. Personally, I think that my work on the uniform and getting JMFR into it seamlessly is some of my better photoshop work. I've considered doing a "Marvel" series of wallpapers if I can get the right images. What do you think? I like Jake as CA, and I can already visualize some of the other players as Avengers/X-Men.

Wow. Ok. This was more a wallpaper aimed at DG, but your cynicism is noted. I tend to not want to alienate a large majority of Michigan fans with my work, so I steer clear of "this team sucks" themes.

I'm actually heading to Michigan for vacation. I'll be at Gull Lake over by Battle Creek from Saturday until next Friday enjoying some good times with a few other families we know. I just hope it warms up more than the forecast, because who wants to go to the lake with 70 degree weather? This is my first time at this particular lake, so I'm excited.

I think this one came out of the emotion I felt seeing multiple pictures of Devin just looking destroyed. This particular photo that I cut up was captioned "Michigan's Devin Gardner is comforted by Ohio State's Braxton Miller after a 42-41 loss."

I can probably do that. It might be after vacation, but it shouldn't be that hard.

The typography is a little much, but I love the effort. I'll be doing some when I get back from vacation, but I'm glad I'll have something to put up in the meantime. Keep trucking, buddy. You do crisp cutout work. How do you like Creative Cloud? I haven't upgraded CS since they went to the cloud.
