Here are a few wallpapers I've made. Give me some feedback and suggestions.


















I make sigs and avatars as well, so if you want one just ask.

@Chillidogg94 yeah I especially rate the Left 4 Dead and USC backgrounds. You should make an abstact syle one next. I'll find out if there are any demos of Adobe Photoshop on at the moment. Keep up the good work!
EDIT: Adobe are doing 30 day trials of there best graphic design suites. You can try Adobe Illustrator CS4, Adobe InDesign CS4 and Adobe Photoshop CS4 either seperately or as a complete package. The software has the full functionality that you get in the full version but only lasts for 30 days. The URL to get the demo is http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/creativesuite/design/trial/?sdid=DPHEJ
Seriously you should at least give Adobe Photoshop a try as it has extensive special effects to be used and you are literally limited only by your own imagination with this suite. I used it way back in college and it wasn't as good as the version out now. You'll want to maybe read a few tutorials if you get the time and a good site for this is on Adobe's site. The URL is http://www.photoshopsupport.com/photoshop-cs4/tutorials/photoshop-cs4-tutorials.html

Thanks man, I'll have to check that out. I'm actually hoping to make a career out of graphic design, so any feedback is welcome.

Cool I always wanted to have a career in graphic design when I was younger but I drifted into computers more on a troubleshooting and maintenace areas. I wish you good luck and you should certainly try Photoshop as if you ever got employed by a design company these are the programs they expect you to use. There are loads of college courses in Graphic Design but you could learn it all by yourself if you wanted just by reading tutorials. Well good luck with your endevours.

Whoa that was a shock! In a good way of course. You should make some NVidia/ATI themed ones too and send em to NVidia/ATI and I bet they'd include your work on their site even. You're pretty talented. The program you're using, is it pretty good? I've never heard of it before. It's called Gimp isn't it? If you haven't already, give the Adobe stuff a whirl coz it's extremely powerfull software and most graphic designers use it. It's been ages since I used it to be honest though and the versions that I used at college years ago are vastly different to the current release, CS4, due to the fact it has countless new features icluded and you can download your own features too. But if you're happy with the features on your program then you may as well stick to what you know best.

@chillidog94 - the 2nd and 4th, in my mind, are the best ones. The effects you're using are pretty heavy, keep up the good work.

@chillidog94 apparently you have to wait for a competition and I can't find any at the moment but there probably will be one soon
