Wallpaper for 2004 --pjp

It's rather hard these days, what with DeviantArt's search function being down, to find cool wallpapers I like, or images I like that I could morph into wallpapers. I'm kinda on a Megaman Zero fling right now... and there aren't a lot of pics of Zero out there. Spent a few hours last night keepin' my ear to the ground, and found some wallpapers you guys might enjoy. I also put together two myself.

Feedback is appreciated, and if any of you find any cool pics, feel free to post 'em as well.

Acquired Backgrounds:
A more recent picture of Zero
An "okay" Zero wallpaper I found, thanks to Altavista.
Coolest one I've found yet... Zero, made by SnoGraphx

Backgrounds I Made:
Simply Zero
Zero - Past, Present, Future

nice. Zero is a badass!
Here's some music inspired by Zero to get you going while you blast your way past Sigma's advanced guard.

Very nice, but there are some sharp edges in the eye of Gentoo though.
You wouldn't mind doing one in a darker color, darkgrey/black would look very nice

A dark blue would be nice, perhaps with some white around the g. Nice work!

Thanks to your comments my ego has inflated to twice its size now, so let me make a shameless plug for my art page at deviantart. http://chojindsl.deviantart.com

Very nice :D :D

Only suggestion would be to have the gentoo "G" more prominant as it is currently just a reflection.

Actually its a bump map. I wanted to make it subtle.

I originally wanted to G to be self-illuminated with a small volume fog rising out of it, but I would have to alter the geometry for that, which is a lot of work.

Well...
Yeah, I guess.

The G doesn't really fit, and seems a bit... wrong to me somehow... :/

Great wallpaper anyway! Great job... Wish I could do something like that O,o

That is a beautiful display of blender. Makes me want to take the time to learn it and be able to create something even 1/10th as beautiful.

It's pretty good, but I would say it needs polishing. The texture of the lips looks a bit like paint - I'd say it needs to be lighter (in texture, not necesserily color). Not bad at all, though.

I thought it was cool with the painty like textures... Tomorrow I'll try to give her some lip-gloss K? :wink:
Don't know if I'll be able to do it, I don't know the GIMP too well...
