ehhh...didn't know where to post this. mods, if this is in the wrong place, please move. thanks. just a little wallpaper i made earlier today. enjoy!

download the wallpaper! (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3067/2361917875_9e12f5db11_b_d.jpg)

i need to find a better file host so i can give you all the full size wallpaper. stupid flickr downsized the largest version.

i like it.

maybe you could make another one and have like an ukulele on it or something.

but very nice work.

i would've but i wanted to make it a little bit more subtle. the wood texture looks like the back of a koa uke to me. that's the main reason i used it.

neat stuff -- thank you

an idea popped into my tiny brain when I was looking at this, and while I don't have the skills or equipment to do it nicely, maybe somebody else around here can give this idea a shot

Hows about a close-up of the body (perhaps at a slight of an angle for some depth) so you can see the 4 strings and maybe the bridge, and thru the soundhole where you would normally see a kamaka/lanikai/costco sticker, you see a worn but just legible UU sticker (maybe a little shadow on the sticker so its no so in-yer-face)? If possible, zoomed in just enough to fill the frame with the top/body, you don't really need to see the outer edges of the body since you see 4 strings you know yer in uke town yeah?

am I making sense? just babbling from the hip here . . .

Nice and simple, the way i like it :D there's one thing that bothers me though, and it's the "underground". I'm thinking it should be solid like how the shirts are because some parts of the outline aren't clear. just my opinion though, don't gotta change it up. makes me wanna make one now haha.

So how do we get this logo? For us graphic design folks ;)

the politically correct way to do it would be to PM rayan or uuadmin and request permission first. if they give you a file of the original design, then email them back with a draft of your design for review and approval before letting it go public.

i believe this is what thribal theory did.

btw, the design is siiiiiiiiick! its my current desktop too. and im going to send it to my fone for its wallpaper.

looks heaps good :D so it must be good enough.

Me and my friend took the schools paintshop pro, the new one that cost them like 700$. Not the box but copied from the computer and i put it on mine and froze it forever haha :D

lesson learnt because it cost me money to fix it :( my dads anyway..

Out of curiosity, what strings are on that ukulele? I have major SAS and so now I'm obsessed with them.

There aren't enough uke wallpapers out there for my taste. I use the few I've found as rotating images in my screensaver. But I want MORE.

You can find a few nice ones from James Hill (http://www.ukulelejames.com/downloads.htm), too.
