Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

I'd like to make a Juri & Luka wallpaper. To see both of them, in rain, mourning for their love in vain, certainly can express more than purely the pics.

Besides, I like Juri's curly hair. It's really hard for her to maintain the curls. I'd like to get better shots of her.

Down inside me, I am thinking that if I can see her pic everyday, I can be more like her--capable of many things, sensible. THat's the main reason why I prefer her to be on my wallpaper instead of Utena, even though Utena IS my favourite character.

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

For some reason, I haven't really found a SKU wallpaper that I'd actually use since my sister always changes the wallpaper if she doesn't like it. I know for a fact that she doesn't like anime.
But if I had my own computer, then there would be Himemiya. etc-love And Utena or Akio.

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

I like to change my wallpaper every five months or so, and usually they're Utena related. In fact, I like using ones I find on Empty Movement! I'm fond of having Juri on my desktop, also Utena because people claim that I have resemblence to her (yeah if I were 70 pounds lighter and an anime character emot-rolleyes), but right now I've got that great "Kill Chuchu" wallpaper up. You can find in on EM!

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

The vector trace part of the site is devoted in no small part to a thirst for high quality SKU images to plaster on my desktop. I use a resolution much larger than what our donators use, so I'm kinda on my own. emot-frown

Most of the wallpapers I would choose involve Akio looking like sex, unfortunately my desktop is viewed by people who wouldn't cut me a break about it, so I tend to use more innocuous characters. Like etc-love Saionji etc-love. I'm putting the finishing touches on a trace of him and Touga from the video game that I produced at 10000 pixels wide. emot-aaa

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

I tend to keep this one - which is too bad it's so small to be a avatar image, but damn - it's sexy AND romantic. 


At work, I change it almost weekly - from other anime, then it's a toss up, using either Akio, Touga or Mikage - mostly Touga though - He poses and smirks so well.

Tho' my guys at work - claimed Touga was a girl!  poor Touga...   I had up an image of him from the movie, with all that glorious hair . . . 

Side note - at my work space at home - I tend to keep this Akio-Utena one on my desktop, but literally right behind my monitor, on the wall is the mostly-naked Tarot Akio pic.  He inspires me . . .

I did a vector trace that I haven't fixed up enough for the site yet, Touga looking to the side on a plain black background. No text, no swirlies, no nothing.

Actually, my last four wallpapers have been Touga.

I sound like I'm obsessed emot-frown

It doesn't come up very often in real life, I promise emot-frown

On my laptop, I have the Utena Manwich, as my brother calls it. I was making it into a wallpaper but never finished. At work, I have a great big flaming orange eyeball (not Sauron). It's pretty awesome emot-dance

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

For a while, I was changing my desktop every other day, since I wasn't sure what to keep it as. For a while, it was a picture of Shiori offering Juri the orange rose, but it didn't have very good quality.

Now my desktop is one that I found off of this website, which has Juri and Shiori on it. (I was so happy to finally see a desktop where Shiori has clothes on. None of the others do.) Except, well, I may have edited out the french and quoted Yasha's comment... (To whoever made it, I'm sorry for editing your work.)

As of lately, I refuse to put anything on my desktop that doesn't have Shiori on it, so I'd like to make a Shiori desktop myself once I take the time to learn how to use photoshop. I already have it planned out, for the most part. But for now, I love my current desktop. XD;

That's so flattering emot-redface

I'm sure a bunch of people here can give you pointers on how to use photoshop if you want them. I see a lot of good wallpapers and a lot of rather unfortunate ones, and I know a fair bit about photoshop, so if you want, you can ask for tips when you start it. Gio's better with photoshop than I am, though.

Like Yasha said, we'd both be happy to answer Photoshop questions. If anyone else is interested, by all means someone start up a thread in General Discussion.

The nice thing about knowing how to use Photoshop is you can be obscenely greedy about what you look at. emot-biggrin If I want Akio and Saionji in constant rotation on my desktop for all eternity, well by god I'll have it!

And now, despite my outdated computer's whining, I'm producing print-quality vector traces. So, so fun.

I really should learn how to learn Photoshop. I spend a lot of a time redesigning the clothes from Utena so that I can make 'sims' of every character on a game called The Sims 2. Unfortunately, I can only use MS Paint, and so most of the projects take 5-8 hours on average. Coloring things one pixel at a time is enough to make me go insane. emot-gonk

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

I suck at making wallpapers myself, but I did have for rather a long time on my desktop this one I made of movie!Anthy:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v146/ … sarah2.jpg

And back in the day, I used to rotate a lot between the high quality images from Empty Movement -- mostly it was the shifty ones that always earned raised eyebrows from my mother (but then the only episode of the show she ever watched with me was Cowbell of Happiness, so she knew better than to ask questions by then). My personal favourite was that picture of baby!Utena held between the series-age Touga and Saionji, but then anything remotely shifty involving Mikage always floated my boat, too... [cough http://www.ohtori.nu/gallery/misc/DVDVolume05.jpg cough]

[snickers] I mean "baby" in that it was the Utena they found in the coffin when they were all children -- which is why I love that picture, because it represents how Utena herself was one of the major wedges first driven between them, and why their friendship is in the sorry state it is in by the start of the series. But they're still copping a feel from one another, and hey, I'm easy as hell. Hot guys copping a feel even with a legal minor between them? Christ, this show would warp the pope himself.

What's fucked up royal is that I really liked this picture (http://www.ohtori.nu/gallery/maison/UtenaAnthy12.jpg) until it occured to me that Chuchu's mouth had to be shaped like that for a REASON, and it was likely as not a reason for Akio's own good. (Like he doesn't have ENOUGH willing holes as it is, for Christ's sake...)

I always figured it was a plushie or something. Which really brings that comment on the shrine, I dunno if it's still there, about the bunny suit to mind...

Anyway, I adore both of those images, but I've never managed to think up a good wallpaper concept for them. Mostly I end up using screenshots or pictures that closely match screenshots. It just seems less... overused, I guess.

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

I've got quite a lot of experience with photoshop too, so I'd be willing to help as well. emot-keke That reminds me, I should try making some Utena wallpapers to contribute to Empty Movement...since graphics are pretty much the only thing I CAN contribute. (I suck at art, I suck at fanfic, and to write an essay I would have to kick myself a LOT and do lots and lots of refining because like I said, I suck at writing. But graphics, I can do.)

It took me a while to notice that it was kid Utena too. Which made me go "..." a little at first, until I heard someone's idea (Might it have been you? It was when I just got into the series and I was looking back at roselinedcoffin entries) about what it represents about their friendship.

But on topic, I would love to use lovely lesbianic or friendship wallpapers of Utena and Anthy, but like I said in the other topic, I would get a lot of stares for that. I don't use anime wallpapers as it is unless it's in the summer, because I stay in a dorm room and my roommate and her friends see my computer, as does my mom sometimes.. so.. yeah. Not many people have heard of anime here. D: Plus girl on girl action would be a no-no. It's Mississippi. emot-frown

Maybe some shadow dueling scene wallpapers would be acceptable..

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

I'm glad I'm not the only one whose SKU fangirlism is cruely suppressed by having to avoid wallpapers that have naked kissing women and guys with their shirts open and oversexed grins on their faces.

The artwork done for SKU is a lot raunchier even than the series was, and it tends to insinuate relationships that didn't happen (those pics of Juri and Miki). But so pretty. And so naughty. (Touga get your hand off your sister's pubis! emot-aaa)

Re: Which character would you prefer to appear on your desktop wallpaper?

It's a long time since I've bothered with wallpaper for either my home machine or my work machine. I always have my apps open at full size, so I never see the background anyway.

I did make a wallpaper once that featured Mikage and Saionji. And I did give in at work and applied a bunch of my larger digital pieces to the screensaver, which randomly displays the pictures. That batch includes some of my Utena fanart.

Good Lord yes. I remember bringing the DVDs to school to lend to a friend. Another friend took one look at the art, applied what she knew of anime and asked why I was watching lesbian porn with threesomes. I tried to explain the symbolism, but it didn't quite work. So now Utena is forever "the Lesbian Porn Show" in my circle. etc-wankgirl
