Oh Well, Why Not

I took a shot at making a wallpaper with some of the recently released images from the upcoming X-Men 3 movie.

Well, it didn’t quite turn out as well as it looked in my head. Cropping the pics was ridiculously difficult as the backgrounds were almost the same color as the leather suits, so some of it was guess work. Not to mention having to re-draw Wolverines foot by hand. Oh well, more could be done, but there’s only so much you can fiddle around with something. I did learn some cool tricks about layering in a picture layout, so that was good.

Anyway, it was just for fun, so it doesn’t matter. You can download the full sized image here if you really, really want to. It’s not exactly 1280 X 1024. It’s more like 1289 X 958. (That’s something else I have to get right next time.) However, the widescreen look gives it more of a cinematic flair, if you ask me. (No, it’s not a bug, it’s a feature :-)

Thanks! That's pretty cool to think someone actually downloaded one of my creations.

Going to have to work on some more variations (can you say Firefly? ;) and work on polishing up the end result. It's a fun, but time consuming hobby :)
