Background request for my laptop; (lot of content to work with)

Okay, I said in the Constant Update 3 thread that I fell in love with a canadian musician named Lights. I now want a background collage using pictures from her website. So, if anyone would like to do that... you will get many, many cool points from me!

Dunno if it matters, but I'm currently running 1280x800 (thats the settings it was on when I got it, haven't changed it), so I guess work with that? Aaaand, I'm too lazy to click download on all of these, then upload to photobucket and link them from here, so I'mma just gonna post the links to the ones I like. Do what you will with them.

Use whatever from there, I'm just listing my personal favorites. Except the first two, those are the ones that made me decide to request this.

On second thought, I think this one might be with the first two... I want one where she has her keytar, not sure if I already linked one lol: http://images.warnerbrosrecords.com/drupal6x/cores/latest/sites/lights6/files/photos/050.jpg

If anyone can do this, I will be most appreciative. If I get more than one, I'll just switch them out daily!

Color scheme? Uhm, dark? My firefox theme is Nasa Night Launch, which I've always liked, and has always gone really well with the FFF themes.

I can't think of lyrics off hand that would work, partially because I just started listening to the song a couple days ago, so just her name, Lights, on there somewhere is good.

If these points go towards getting down with you I'll respectfully decline. I refuse to cheat on SG (jk).

I had actually planned to sign up for this to try my hand at a wallpaper for a change, but it was going to be a last ditch, if nobody else replies for like a week I'll come and save the topic kind of thing. I've got a vacation coming up if I find myself with an overabundance of alone time and alcohol I'll toss my hat into the ring.

Short hand: I'll give it a shot, but don't expect much.

I gave it a stab for you. I hope you like it... I'm not really sure if it's what you're looking for but I couldn't resist making it fun and colourful. I attempted to keep some parts of it dark as requested and added text too.

That image of her is awesome which is why I picked it.

This is like Nando's.... Do we get a free chicken when it's full?

challenge?
See that's all you've got to say to get me on board *looks around for BustaMo...coast is clear* fo sho.

I just spent an hour gathering images and another looking through tutorials and other misc. things to make the required items for what I have planned. Shitty thing is the effect that would make it sooo much easier is only on one of the newer version of PhotoShop. I may have to cheat the system and download a free trial of CS4.

After tinkering around with stuff for 4 hours I've kind of altered my idea again, which means the last 3 hours of work are pretty much for nothing, but such is graphic editing. I'm gonna call it a night for now and maybe pick up where I left off tomorrow night if I get a chance. I am giving this my all though, so you'll have to excuse me if its not done in the next couple of days.

I do believe this is deserving of another post. Hope you like it, took a lot of time and effort to make.

2 hours searching/gathering images and looking up tutorials that I didn't use.
6 hours actual work time.
8 hours total, I just worked a full time shift.

Also if you want me to ditch all the "photo booth" strips on the right and reupload it I can.

Enjoy

I would also like to know if it's ok if I upload this on my deviantART account as I like how it came out and would like to show it off. Fear not I'll put a watermark over the top of it and disable downloads so only you will be able to have this wallpaper.

Dude, that's pretty awesome, too. And I like how you made it to where all the icons will be in the empty-ish area with no pictures. Go ahead and post it, since it is your work.

Plus 20 Relient A points to both of you. who submitted.

PS: I had no idea it takes that long to make these...

Very nicely done TMCouTou should be pleased with the outcome it looks really good. It's a very classy montage and the amount of time you've put in really shows. You should feel proud of this piece, definitely put it on DA and definitely add a sig (the url for your DA account small along the bottom so it's hidden by the bar thing).

Wallpapers do require a lot of man hours to do but they are worth it. After all it's going to be looked at everytime the computer is on. I try to put a lot of time into
my wallpapers. My latest one is a redraw from a screen capture I took from Batemonogatari. I've done at least 10 hours or more of "vectoring" in Photoshop.

So even though we both put a lot of time Ito
them I'm sure TMC will agree when I say it's worth it... Now I sound like a damn L'Oriel add :/

^Only wallpaper I've ever made lol

@RA I had actually planned to put Lights with the film strip directly in the middle and graffitti the sides with photo booth photo strips. Then I got to thinking that might make you seem a little too obsessed with her, not to mention anything on the left wont be seen anyhow since that is where most people keep their desktop icons. Kind of a last minute decision, but it makes sense.

Thanks for the comments everyone, glad you like it. I'm just glad to be done with it because it seems like lately anything I do for more than a couple hours at a time before bed really influences dreams. So I've gone from taking in hot chicks that always turn into freakin' zombie making me paranoid as hell (Zombieland), killing people and having a 2 inch thick vase broke over my head, not affecting me (House of 1000 Corpses) shredding on my guitar, killing demons with the lighting that comes off it (Brutal Legend), to hitting on Lights. Apparently I've still got the moves...at least in my dreams...GF didn't find that too funny though until I told her I thought she was more attractive than Lights; wasn't lying either. No offense RA, but she's still all yours if you become DJ Rock All!
