Title: The Weekly Wallpaper - 09.04
Post by: Brian Belida on April 30, 2007, 09:51:10 PM
Hey all, Akh here. Some of you know that I dabble in art a bit, and I've always wanted to do a kind of weekly round up of parkour related art, wallpapers, poetry, written stories, etc. So this is my venture into that. Each week I'll throw together a new parkour wallpaper for you to use at your leisure.

What would be really awesome is if other members of the community would PM me their own parkour related art, wallpapers, poetry, written stories, etc., and if I get enough submissions I might start making a weekly front page post with these entries! I know personally I'm a GUI pimp and have wallpaper ADD for my computer, hopefully others share my wallpaper ADD and would benefit from this! I'll do a certain number a week, and have a couple lying in wait, so if I get a flood of stuff it will just build up and slowly be released each week.

Update : Only one this week!

My fav so far was the pksuperpunch. I'd have to say the best part about it is the little kid on the left side.  Oh yeah, it's a cool pic too... :)

Sorry for the delay, folks. Photoshop isn't working on my work computer so I can't save the .psd files as .jpg. I'll e-mail them to myself and it'll have to get done when I get off of work today.

So... submissions? :] Come on! Be featured on the front page!
Title: Re: The Weekly Wallpaper - 06.24 Three more!
Post by: Brian Belida on July 02, 2007, 06:33:49 PM
Another two! The first post is getting so jumbled I don't feel like updating it anymore. So here they are :]

(http://img172.imageshack.us/img172/861/wwtraceurspiritls2.th.jpg) (http://img172.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wwtraceurspiritls2.jpg) (http://img108.imageshack.us/img108/121/wwstandingbarsfd0.th.jpg) (http://img108.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wwstandingbarsfd0.jpg)

The first one is an awesome piece of work by anssipanssi at DeviantArt (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/50349308/?qo=5&q=traceur&qh=boost%3Apopular+age_sigma%3A24h+age_scale%3A5) that I seamed together on a sweet parchment background. The second is an old one that I realized I hadn't shared in the WW yet, so I reworked it a bit and here it is. Enjoy!

It beat out a lighter with water instead of fire.

This has got to be the coolest picture ever.
1) Orange is my favorite color
2) White is my second favorite color
3) I've always liked that sil.
4) Those are badass wings.

Needless to say, this is my desktop. And will be for a very long time.

So, I had this really cool wallpaper I found (I thought, from this site) and it was like a drawing of a traceur with his back to you in the lower right corner, and there was an old-looking European building on the left (drawn) and the whole thing had a cool tan look like it was drawn on parchment.

Anyway, I changed my wallpaper for a while and I want that one back again and I can't find it anywhere!!!  I thought it was a weekly wallpaper but I'm not finding it.  Anybody know what I'm talking about??
