Nevermind about the rain brushes, but Vue comes with pre-rendered ships, buildings, etc...these are ok to use right?

One other thing. My piece's original size is 1920 x 1200. But I really wanted to add a border to it so I did. But the border makes it 2020 x 1350. The downloadable wallpapers are all wallpaper sizes though, it's just the preview that is larger than it should be because of the border. Can I still enter this? if not, then I'll just submit the wallpaper as a seperate deviation.

Hey, Great comp! Im a little unsure about the must be three sizes part though. Does this mean a hi medium and lo rez version. I usually work in quite high rez so is it a simple case of resizing this to accomadate the lower rez?

Hi!! I'm confused :) What is meant with "at least three different sizes"?

Do I have to upload it 3 times?

kurze Frage: heißt das jetzt gemalt von Anfang an oder kann auch Universe, Bryce, Poser benutzt werden?
danke :wave:

taenaron Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008   Digital Artist
O.o was ist Universe, Bryce oder Poser? :D
Reply
:iconegank0:
Egank0 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
meinst du das jetzt ernst? hm. okay.
Bryce ist ein 3D-Landschaftsprogramm, Poser ein 3D-Figurenprogramm und Universe ist speziell für Universumbilder mit Features wie Sternenhimmel kreieren oder ne Korona und so...
Aber ausgehend von deiner Antwort denke ich, daß alles gemalt sein soll mittels Grafikprogramm wie PS oder PSP, richtig?

:icontaenaron:
taenaron Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008   Digital Artist
Du kannst die Programme durchaus nutzen wenn du die Texturen und Models erstellst, warum auch nicht.
Wie das Bild erstellt wird, ist mir egal. Es soll nur deine eigene Arbeit sein, dein Können und deine Kreativität wiedergeben.
Wenn du eine Bleistiftzeichung einscannst und auf WP Format bringst, zählt die genauso ;)

sry that I reply a bit late ;)

you have to creat your own things. what programs you'll use, is not important.

it's important that you show your own work (and in a complete way) :)

I have a query.
Can I make the wallpaper in one resolution, say 1600x1200, and then reduce it to sizes like 1280x1024 and 1024x768?

Or is there some other thing you mean when you say "3 different sizes"?

Please answer, I wanna join too! ^^
