Ouran Wallpaper: More fun with Photoshop

As I post this, I realize that I have no where on any of my formal websites to display this stuff. Yeeks, I’ll figure out something by the end of the week. Anyhow, here’s the Haruhi wallpaper. I like this image of her with sheep (mostly because I adore sheep). So I made the image to look like it was cut out of paper.  Here’s the original image:

Here are some links to the nether regions of one of my websites. I’ll update this once I get something formal going.

Wallpaper Done

I had to take the image into Fireworks to work with items I imported easier.  I purchased a couple doily drawings from iStockPhoto and a floral flourish to complete the look.yudabg1_sm1

I also made a wide screen version for TV, laptops, and wide screen monitors.

Snowball’S World is Live

Check it out!  It took me a total of ~12-hours from blank sheet of paper to website.  Most of the time was spent prepping the photos in Photoshop.  I had to fix the color, crop them, crank down the resolution, and resize the images to fit within the browser window and to reduce the overall file sizes.  I also did a little “magic” to some of the pictures.  Since this was part of an assignment, I had to do some goofy things I wouldn’t do  like use tables.  I’ve very pleased with the way it turned out given the boundaries of the assignment.   (I’m so glad I know Flash!!!)   Here’s a link.  Enjoy getting to know my guinea better and some more of my incessant cuteness.
