RP Background

MythicFritz
So I got rid of the tree.



Now changing all the colors to blues and greens has been troublesome. I literally just thought of a little trick though so I gonna go try that now

Trick worked!



Now to fine tune. Definitely a few things to tweak. Then I'll play around with the hand some.

What do you think of the colors guys?

Nice work Mythic.  Godly, Nik, I think we need to throw that rp favs position to someone else, mythic is our new graphic artist.  :)

Graphic work comes and goes though. It's usually a little intense at the startup of a site or at an overhaul. Once things are up and running there's rare need for work.

I was joking about throwing it out.  You done good though.

I knew I could count on you Mythic. That looks damn good. Would you mind uploading the proper size version of that for now so I can see how the layout looks with that coloring while you tweak it?

You caught me on a morning where I actually woke up on time. Give me a few minutes here to finish breakfast and I'll upload it in its current state for you.

Awesome mythic... thanks. Here is the preview with just a simple background swap... damn I have a lot of work to do... *sigh*

Oh and as for file type for the final version, I would prefer PNG. They tend to look better all around.

Here is a plain background Godly with the final colors I like. 1280x1024 png



What do you guys think? Colors, the fade into each other, the fade off the sides, darkness of upper header?
What about hand placement if any?

Here's a smaller version so everyone can see its entirety in case it gets cut off for you



And here's an idea what the page might look like

So I had been running around looking at this will all my computers to see different screens. Two of my four monitors I really like it on, but the other two seem flatter, less saturated and a lot of the subtlety is lost. I thought 2 for 4 isn't bad. But seriously guys, rip this apart and let me know what you think. This is ours and not just mine.

Sadly I cannot see the coloring right now. My laptop decided to go all black and white on me. So I will check it on my wife's laptop sometime and get back to you. The hand placement definitely looks nice though.

It looks good on my screen, granted I've got an $800 17" laptop with a really good screen.

Mythic do you have a version with just the hand, because technically that is part of the background... lol

I'm no where near home right now but I'll get something to you late tonight when I get home. I haven't heard any input from anyone else so I guess we're a go with what I've got now. Looking at a few other monitors with it I want to tweak the saturation of the colors just a little more too.

The hand placement look ok? If it isn't it's not hard to move around.

I like what you have done so definitely keep the hand print... if it needs to be moved for some reason I will let you know. I'll start working on the new layout soon. I've got a lot of coding to do.
