Fresh Wallpapers

Recommended Posts

I've wanted to make wallpapers from the 2 box-arts I've design recently (to see in this topic)

Both are 1600x1200. Made on Gimp + Inkscape.

I think wallpapers are one of the many fun ways we can spread the spirit of the game. Fans like to have stuffs to download ! And the Wallpapers section of the upcoming site needs some recent stuffs, indeed!

ASAP, I will work on some other visuals for the box-art, trying to cover the whole span of the game's civilizations. By the way, don't hesitate to suggest me good photo material from ancient art that represents battles! I believe it's going to be hard for the Celts, who don't seem to have much pictured themself fighting. I'd love to give a try on a Mauryan box-art.

Great work dude (y)

Not only can this go to the website wallpapers gallery but perhaps shared through the next weekly report to the fans :) (But then it would be a periodic thing... how about three wallpapers a month?)

Ah ah! No, I think one per month would be largely enough, even less. But sure, if these two first can serve the Weekly Report, that would be cool. I see that as an introduction to the box-art that is going to appear in various spots of the web soon, like on Gameolith and who knows, Valve's Steam !

Perhaps some different sizes? 1920x1080 is what I use.

I can arrange that, sure. As an example, I see that on AOE-Online's site they provide up to 9 different sizes of wallpapers ! That's a lot!

I suggest we limit to 3 or 4 sizes, corresponding to all the needed ratios of screens. I'll think that in detail soon. Now here it's time to sleep.

Any suggestion is welcome of course. :)

Nice is probably a few compared to all the possible resolutions :P Especially if we take into account things like smartphones and tablets which adds even more sizes (and I would assume quite a few of them are non-standard ratios :P ).

I don't say we have to offer wallpapers in all possible resolutions, but the more the merrier :)

A new (and very simple) one :

1600x1200 again. First I produce a good bunch of new wallpapers, and later I will convert them to various sizes.

This one uses the texture of the website's background. FYI, this is a rock texture I shot in Greece this summer :) In Delfi if I remember well...

Another one, dedicated to the Celts and to the art of the game.

If someone can send me a high quality version of the Celt hero artwork, that would be helpful, so I can make that wallpaper in much better quality. For now it is much too blurry on the character.

@ShieldBearer : Waow, I love it !! Beautiful screenshot and very nice layout. Feel free to make several more like that ! :)

What font are you using for the "History..." sentence ?

I put it in the new website right now. If you don't mind, for now I only put the 1600x1200 version, and later, when we find a good way to offer various sizes in the gallery with a thumbnail+list, we'll update the other one, and why not some more sizes on this same wallpaper.

This is the best I think we have:

Shoot Brendan an email though - I bet he would be excited to see how your using his art and happy to give you a higher quality image.

Now horizontal stripes, with the name of each faction !

I've tried a different catch sentence. What do you think of it ?

(edit : updated the picture version, with Romans and Hellenic factions at the right place)

And again a new one ! :)

A recent Mauryan shot I did. I added a slightly fade of purple in the stop right to have a less white sky. I thought it's more in harmony with the building's tone.
