    Uh, I realize this is very belated, but I vaguely remember having tried to find this forum (knowing I left loose ends) - but failing to locate it. At this time I finally found it, after having first tried...

    Justo to clarify, I didn't change the colors of the actual logos, per say, as in the 'F' of the facebook logo was never yellow. The logos were all black, which is fine, and the backgrounds to them were...

    It still leaves me in uncertainty. What I had before, in the creation of this thread, seemed to me to be respectable to their branding. I can understand not having the Facebook logo turned into a gun...

  • Wallpaper I made--Kobe

    Hey guys, new here. I read the rules pertaining wallpapers and "things that look nice". It just said I may not receive a lot of CnC, and I'm find with that.



    Please do comment n' critique, I'm new at this. Thanks in advance.

    Why the rainbow? You know what rainbows stand for right?

      OK, here's the harsh bit: Did you take that photo yourself? If not, do you have permission to use it? If not, you're stealing.

        When the purpose is a format your creating art not design.

        Where did you read these rules at?

        fan art… not design.

          Garricks, I consider this fan art so not stealing.

            Well...fan art is stealing. The subject doesn't always turn a blind eye to it either. I once watch Richard Biggs from Babylon 5 get up from an autographing table and go through a dealer room and threaten lawsuits to anyone selling unauthorized photos from the show. Only one booth was authorized by the end of it. Lucky them!

              concept is intersting. glow is a bit harsh (on my PC-wil look on my Mac later).
              wouldn't be a wallpaper i'd keep up long....i usually change every week or 2. this would probably get boring before the day's end.

              not really much of a critique but-

                I personally would remove the crowd from the image. I think it detracts from the sharp lines and color of the main subject.

                  Well, maybe fan art is stealing, but it's free (if unwanted) promotion. Is that what makes people turn a blind eye?

                    That's a bit more than just creating fan art. That's creating black market goods. If Mavericks is selling this wallpaper, yeah he's stealing. If, however, he's just using the image to create something for himself, that's a bit different.

                      It may be stealing, but as long as the creator isn't making money off of it, then I don't see much of a problem.

                      I agree with Virgo, I would take out the crowd.
