The November Fan Art Competition!

Painting and Decorating - Make a Wallpaper!

Partly inspired by Voltabuffy's beautiful creations - - this month's competition is to make a wallpaper for your computer desktop! This is an image manipulation competition, not drawing. However knowing how to use photo software is vital, so if you've not got much experience, look up some tutorials before you start!

You can make your wallpaper in either 1024x768 (standard desktop) or 1280x800 (standard laptop) pixels. You can use any published Starlight Express photos or Stock images. Theme your wallpaper any way you like - all one cast, all one character, your favourite actors - anything. Remember that the point of a wallpaper is to be your computer desktop. It's personal, interesting, makes you smile - but also has icons covering it and you need to be able to find them.
