Ok, get ready because I have a LOT of backgrounds that my cpu alternates thru.

In case you didn't know, Tamami-Chan is a character from an anime still in Japan, called Mahoraba (Heartful Days). Square-Enix plays some part in it, though I can't remember what ATM. Needless to say, it is the first anime by square-enix that doesn't have some dark backstory or bloody scenes or anything of the sort (i.e. FMA). One of those happy happy things. Hard to believe...

this is inside my 3d MagiTek armor. I'll put my updates to it in the submissions section.

I don't much look at my desktop, which is why my desktop is so messy. The picture is one I took of my cat, Batcat, she's a big softy.

Some of my recent wallpapers include:

http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/seraph_running.PNG
http://web.mit.edu/derrict/Public/seraph_running2b.PNG

The character is, again, from the Seraph flash game. (I don't remember the link; just do a Google search for Seraph.swf .)

Although, considering what I've been seeing on that desktopgaming website and that cool (or hot?) picture that that anime-pic person posted in the midst of stuff I wouldn't ever use, it might change soon.

I'm not sure how to post my actual desktop, so I'll just say what I've been using recently.

I used this wallpaper from around October to around New Year's. I saw it in an Adult Swim interlude awhile ago, and decided I really liked the setting and the tint on it.

After I replaced my hard drive around a month and a half ago or so, I decided to return to an old favorite, a wallpaper which I've used off and on for the past three years or so. It's an official wallpaper from Skies of Arcadia, which is one of my favorite RPGs of all time. However, for some reason planetdreamcast.com has joined the ranks of FilePlanet for all of its wallpapering needs, so I had to resort to Google to find it again.

For the past two weeks, however, I've been using this. It's a side view of a galaxy that the Hubble telescope found a few years ago. They decided to name it the "sombrero galaxy", even though it's basically a nifty side view of a spiral galaxy like our own Milky Way. When I saw this picture, I immediately knew where it was going. You can find all kinds of different resolutions on spacetelescope.org (as detailed as 175 MB), but I decided to go easy on you by posting a much easier-to-view smaller file.

I cleaned up a bit my desktop before taking a pic from it.

I have the same wallpaper for 3-4 months, all I know where this picture comes from is that it was made by someone called Shingo from the Shaman King staff. That's the only information I was able to find.

Sadly, my Windows XP is in French and that's annoying. sad.gif
But I'm getting used to Linux so that shouldn't be a problem anymore. smile.gif

Laszlow, to post your desktop, simply use a screenshot program or press "Print Screen" on your keyboard and paste it on a program like photoshop or paint, then save. Host it with something such as www.imageshack.com
simple no? tongue.gif

After I reinitialized my comp, i went looking around Hongfire.com for some cool anime pics. Ive set some as my desktop:

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a308/strikerbolt/Mr.jpg
The scary part is he's not cosplaying...
http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a308/strikerbolt/AFX6.jpg
I like this one. The character from the anime has ADD, so it kinda fits.
http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a308/strikerbolt/YTB.jpg
A nice action shot from my 2nd favorite non-dubbed anime
http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a308/str...bolt/ELwall.jpg
and this is my current desktop. NOTE: Elfin Lied is not an anime for anyone under 17. It contains lots of blood, gore, limb lossage, nudity, and moral corruption. Very good though.

Offtopic: I know there is a program that will change your desktop picture every so often, but I have had trouble finding it. Can anyone send me a link?

I don't have my own computer, I jus' use what's here at home. If I had my own PC, I'd use either FFVIII wallpaper, or put up some art work if I had artist's permission as I have no aptitude in art, I've tried! Or some cool-lookin' night-time city scenery.

Unfortunately the sketch doesn't look too good scanned - in the actual picture the colours seem richer. There are plenty of things wrong with it too (for example, hands are too small) but I like it! Oh, and before I got this computer, I had a really bad one. I used to write rude words on the screen and find them extremely funny. smile.gif

I always just end up using screenshots of whatever I'm working on (edit: that sprite's a christmas version; I just didn't get around to switching back to the old textures... Ain't she cute? wink.gif ). Keeps me motivated. JPG compression fuffed it up a bit but meh, it's either that or 1.5 megs of 24bpp PNG tongue.gif

That's a cluttered desktop, IMO. More than 5-6 icons is cluttered to me. I need to clean up a few things. One of my collegues at work had more icons on his desktop than wallpaper; it was just... I dunno. I just felt so dirty looking at such a crowded desktop. :_:

Advice to anyone unsure how to post their desktop pics: go to http://imageshack.us/ It's free, easy to use, and even gives you a sexy copy-paste link to put in forums. You can be sure your bandwidth won't run out with them.

Edit: Threw in the second picture since I just changed my desktop pic. It feels damned good having the original sprite back in there instead of the christmas one. :x

Because I think I found a cool wallpaper, and I'm using it right now.

http://www.ciel-network.com/index.php?Wallpaper

Look under "By: Eriance". I have that Leviathan wallpaper, "sub-zero blue".

Eriance has a record of producing nice artwork. This isn't the only one; I've linked to stuff in a previous post in this thread, although the site that contained such is currently down.

I usually can't stand photos of people/celebrities as desktops, but I just had to use this pic. For those that don't know, she's Diane Neal, that hottie A.D.A. from L&O: SVU. I really love her eyes in this shot, and the mouth, nose, hair....
