The catch-all thread for any creative pieces you've made, digital or analog. I did this today based on a photo of my dog. I'm still going to tweak it some more but I think it came out all right.

Thread necro bump!

Photoshop compositions count, right? Here's a lovely desktop background I made last week. As mentioned in the desktop thread, I've seen a bunch of "grunge" flags lately, but none were relevant to my interests. Enter the UFP grunge flag:



Previous to that, I had been using this simple one I made a couple months earlier:



I'll probably be contributing more to this thread later. Had to dust off those digital cobwebs first, though!

Am I the only one doodling here? C'mon guys and gals. I know you're up to something artstic.

I randomly did a little cash money upgrades tonight. Not sure what inspired me... just feeling a little rebellious, I guess?

We have Spock on our Fiver (with a bit of modification).



Looked a bit better on the old fiver.

All those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.

The Buddy Holly Lincoln makes me laugh, and the Spock is even better! Keep up the good doodles you anarchists!

Bumpadump!

Here's my holiday gift to all of you: two Legend of Zelda-themed desktop backgrounds that I recently made.

For the first one, I took a high-res scan of the ALTTP box art, meticulously cleaned up the logo, trimmed it, and dropped it on a nice gold linen texture that matches the original color.

For the second one, I took a couple of in-game screenshots, redrew and recolored parts of Link's sprite, and cleaned up various bits before recompositing it all back together.

Which one? Which one?!

I used the previous one for about a month (I made it mid-October) on my laptop, switched to something else, and have been using the latter one since I made it one night last week.
