Yeah I wasn't feeling zombie.  I changed Ace's skin (turned it blue tinted rather than gold tinted) and experimented with styling, and then was like, "He looks demonic... let's go that route!" XD

Awesome entry Maggie! Love it.

I have a general question:
Where does everyone get their backgrounds? What do you do about copyrights?

@lionpaws:  Most get them from DeviantArt or somewhere like that.  As for copyright, if you're not making money by the use of someone's background, that doesn't generally fall under a copyright infringement.  Some artists don't want theirs used, which is why I generally aim more for in-game to be safe, but the copyright is generally don't sell this.

@Vanadis : Thanks. Same reason I use in game shots. But they usually come out somewhat blurry, although I have set everything on high.
Love your last shot, it's the from the Venetian set, isn't it?

@lionpaws I do a lot of post-processing on my pictures to stop them looking too blurry... no PSD or anything, just fiddle with adjustment layers.  And yeah I believe it is!

thanks everyone, yeah i tend to use the words 'background' and 'wallpaper' in my searches. this turns up free to use and generally large sized images. the ones that are really stingy about photo use typically have that annoying watermark over the images, like shutterstock for example, they want $ for 'errything. which is great if i were making money too, but as a hobby, just inst justified.

And a little tip i love, search for other video game backgrounds, ones like fallout, skyrim and many more will give more options, yet still a video game feel.

Also remember when you're using Google to search for backgrounds, to go to the search tools thing and you can choose your size!  I normally do "larger than 2MP" because that's about a little bigger than 1080p but a bit smaller than 1440p, so you get that size or larger.  You can go even larger if you want with "bigger than 4MP."  Make sure you fiddle with picture size in your search results though.  

I am a big fan of going into my other games, say Skyrim or Shadow of Mordor, if I want a non-sims background, and taking my own pictures from other games.  Fallout also has some good ones but the most recent Fallout I have is New Vegas, so.

Heya all.

I do more in-game more than background/wallpaper edits, but only because I'm lazy and hate cutting out sims. xD When I do look for background I go to wallpaper sites like....

http://wallpaperswide.com/
http://www.hdwallpapers.in/

I also use DeviantArt and read the user's rules under the photo about using their art before using it as a background.

I also like doing partial edits where majority of the photo is in-game, but the window or the scenery behind a building is background/wallpaper. I just build a green wall where I want it and cut out the green part. I think I posted some of those in the Before & After thread here.
 
Anyway, SimsORIGfan turned in her entry, so it's officially scoring time. @xJojox @socallucyfan send scores!  Smile

@VidKid20 Here a few - Don't judge me too harshly, because these were my quick sketches....if for someone paying or to hang I take quite a bit longer on just one. *I have done several wall murals too...I think they're cool to do! (Because folks LET you draw & paint pictures on their walls) lol

These are 2 quick sketches (charcoal I did for someone)





This was a quick oil (paint) I did for a sister


*I do quick sketches & paints for family (1-2 days), but draw/paint people's houses, pets, and landscapes too. I love wildcats! (Panthers & cheetahs are my fav)

I've also done TONS of gaming art for my kids throughout the years! (Armored knights, warriors, Mario, Zelda, Halo, Destiny, Naruto, etc.)

@ArtsyAmy495 Those are SO FUCKING AMAZING.  I wish I could paint and sketch as well as that!  I mean I can... if I'm given like, a week or more.  But the quick ones (1-2 days) I can't imagine being able to do.  

Also, PM me if you'd like me to commission you a picture of my AceKitty.  She's a Tortie-point Siamese cat, and yes, she is named after the character!  I'd love someone to do a portrait of her and I have some really good reference pictures.  It's just that she's 6 years old and she has asthma and I'm not sure how long left she's got having that.  Asthma can take kitties down before you even know it.  Sad  But I'd love for you to do a picture of my cat.
