Our current forum background was created by me, and linked from my deviant art page. I'm planning on making many more thrive screens, but if anyone else has high quality artwork that they created, i'd be happy to post it. It meeds to be huge, however. At least 1280x1024.

Good, maybe we can get more artists or I can get my lazy Belgium to work.

Currently, my only problem with the forums look is that the send-preview buttons when posting new things are hard to read.

I think the quote message button could use some work.

How so?
I think i might change the color. Being a mod I sometimes accidentally hit edit instead of quote.

Hey there,
I'd quite like to contribute to this project, I've been following it for a while and its about time I got involved
I've been doing some of this type of artwork (With planets and stars) For photography at school.
It aint exactly high quality as you say, but heres a taster of what I can do, and there will definitely be more to come (Atm its only 1024x768)

http://yfrog.com/n6binarymoonj

On a footnote I would be quite happy to do some beta testing and I am quite knowledgable in science so I could help with the biology (my main science-area) side of concepts
As for the art,
Is this the kinda stuff youre looking for?
I will be making more, I did have a whole lot more of them but I lost my pendrive with them and was foolish enough not to make backups

Thanks!

Your picture looked cool, and biology is one of the most important things. Welcome to the project!

Glad to have you! there's a site i'd like to suggest that helped me create our current background.

http://designreviver.com/inspiration/31-breathtaking-planet-space-tutorials-for-photoshop/
most of them can be followed using either photoshop or GIMP like I use.

Wow that site will be VERY useful for bot here and my photography standard! Thanks

The Main problem I have are with stars, I have to use noise for them but I saw a tutorial on that site for a realistic star field. When I come up with something, I'll post it here

If it's good enough, I'll rotate it with the current BG. Make sure it's around 1600x1200

I'm currently working on a very large piece of concept art- an underwater scene. I've discovered a very good way to create realistic waves from underwater in GIMP.

A magician never reveals his secrets.

Anyway I may hop on the forum background bandwagon, if I were up to it.

I'll post it up later (right now it's very early) but the basic process is to put plasma clouds through 2-3 lens distortions, then compress and emboss it, and finally copy, bump up the contrast, put the copy on dodge, and colorize the original layer. It's not quite photo-realistic, but it looks better than water in most video games.

I might put them on a rotator, or i might simply switch them out every few days, but no, yo'l have no power over the BG
muwahahahahahahahaha

Not much, since it's underwater you can't see that far.

Then what's the point of having an underwater background?

Just checking in and seeing if this is the kinda stuff you are looking for
