MGoWallpaper: Harbaugh Blocks Out the Sun

MGoWallpaper: Harbaugh Blocks Out the Sun

Submitted by Blue and Joe on October 5th, 2017 at 1:45 PM

Hate Week is finally upon us. If you follow me, you may know that I live in Lansing. The Michigan State game (in any sport) has special meaning to me. It's very important. I love making wallpaper for this game. Last year, I outdid myself with the "Sparty is Fine" meme. Now, I have to try to top that. I'm not sure if I can.

But I'll give it my best shot.

Since this is a night game, I had an idea for Harbaugh blocking out the sun and casting a shadow over Michigan Stadium. I knew this would be a difficult thing to do since I would have to draw it all from scratch. Let's just say the "Improvement Week" came in handy for me, too.

I think this came out pretty good. It's not exactly what I pictured in my head, but that's what improvement is all about. Hopefullly you enjoy it.

It's time.

Last year, I had a lot of fun making wallpapers for as many opponents as I could. I had a difficult time coming up with an idea for Florida, but then Michigan went and announced maize uniforms. What else is maize and a staple at football games? Mustard.

Michigan fans don't just use regular 'ol yellow mustart. No, the color "yellow" doesn't exist in our color pallete. We use MAIZE mustard, of course. And you would never sully a hot dog with that red tomato stuff.

Florida's mascot may be the Gator, but we all know that Head Coach Jim MacElwain has a soft spot for another sea creature. I thought it would be fitting to give the Gator logo a little makeover.

A new year is upon us! I haven't seen too many wallpapers posted yet, so I figured I would throw one together for you guys. Will get more up if I have the time. Hopefully the rest of our MGoCreative Community will add more options as well.

I got this "Year 3" idea from MGoFish's hype video. Thanks for the inspiration!

The Game. The Wallpaper.

So far this year we have battled the Nyan Warriors, hunted buffalo, schooled the badgers, and turned up the heart on Sparty. Now, it's time to crack some nuts.

Buckeyes are tough, toxic nuts (and people). The wallpaper this week features the only nutcracker strong enough to crack even the biggest buckeyes. I'm still working on a catchy name for the Harbaugh nutcracker, but it works great. Simply put a buckeye in the mouth and watch the strong jaw crush it. What should you do with cracked buckeyes? Toss 'em.

And just for fun, here's a GIF of the Harb-o-matic Buckeye Cracker 2000. #BeatOSU

I took the snowfall as a good omen for us, and wanted to try and capture it in a wallpaper. This is the first one I came up with this morning. I may create and post more if I have the time today and later this week.

We need some wallpaper for #HateWeek, right? Of course.

The MSU rivalry has always been the most important rivalry to me. I live in Lansing, so many of my friends and family members are Spartans. For the last decade, it has not been very fun to live amongst the Green and White.

However, this year has been great fun. The Sparty fans in my life have been unusually quiet. It's almost as if they are sitting quietly in a burning room. Just like the famous dog from the very popular comic. That's where the idea for this wallpaper came from.

And for all your trash talking needs, here it is in comic form.

Aaaand for good measure, here's a GIF.

The inspiration for my wallpaper this week is a little bit out of left field. Some of you may be aware that Wisconsin once tried to steal the "Mitten State" slogan from Michigan. In the winter of 2011, a Wisconsin tourism campaign used the image of a mitten stretched in the shape of Wisconsin. Some Michiganders were outraged, but most thought it was hilarious.

This is not what a mitten looks like. The "thumb" is an incredibly generous interpretation of what the state actually looks like. I don't want to see the hand that fits in that mitten.

My takeaway from the situation was that Wisconsinites aren't very good at drawing hands. In fact, maybe people from Wisconin just aren't good at drawing in general. So what would it look like if the head coaches from Wisconsin and Michigan were asked to draw their respective mascots? See for yourself below.

It's time for another wallpaper!

The opponent this week is well known in the Michigan fanbase (we won't talk about why). The Buffaloes from Colorado come into the Big House this week. Before the season, this seemed like another cupcake game. It could still end up being a cupcake game, but Colorado does seem to be a little better than Hawaii and UCF.

It's time for 'ol Harbaugh and the boys to wrangle up some buffs. 

This wallpaper is an edit of an old John Mix Stanley painting. He was an artist in the mid-1800's that painted a lot of of landscapes and Native Americans. This specific painting can be found in the Smithsonian.

This is one of the more difficult wallpapers I've created. I cobbled together a few photos from the MGoBlog Flickr to get Harbaugh in the right pose. Hope you enjoy it.

PREVIOUS MGOWALLPAPER

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about rainbows is Nyan Cat. In case you don't know about Nyan Cat, it's an extrememly weird video that has been viewed over 137 million times. The video features a pop-tart cat flying through the sky with a rainbow trail. Don't ask why.

Anyway, this week the Rainbow Warriors are coming to town. They don't feature the rainbow colors as much these days (which is a shame), but that doesn't matter to me. I present to you "Nyan Warriors:" an 8-bit wallpaper for game week.

We're nearly a week away, and I know a lot of you love the wallpapers posted on this here blog. I'm always excited to update my background each season (sometimes multiple times per season), and this year's batch of backgrounds hasn't disappointed.

 

What I want to know is, what wallpaper are you going with for kickoff? Personally, I'm rocking this gem from Blue and Joe:

 

Post which wallpaper you're going with. If you haven't changed yours yet, then you have 7 days to get it together! Those posted to the board/diaries for reference:
