Wallpaper contest

Since Hardline is coming up, we're going to need a new wallpaper for the website.

Design a wallpaper (or pick it from the internet) and post it here, and it might get selected Smile

Requirements: 1920x1080 resolution, try to keep the size as low as possible Smile

To give some constructive

To give some constructive critisism on your work limit:

First off i love the layout and background. Second i love how you applied the soldier 'standing outside' of the picture and the background blurred away a little. The colour theme also fits the picture as a whole pretty damn good. The only thing you could improve is make one logo for Battlefield Hardline and put The Tac Team somewhere else in the picture, or at least not overlapping "Hardline". 

 

Well done Limit!

Just a tip for making a

Just a tip for making a wallpaper for a website:

The focus of the wallpaper should be on the sides (most on left side, less on right side) instead of the center (since it's covered).

Keep up the good work!

Isn't it different what

Isn't it different what people can see on the sides from monitor size and the resolution people are using? 

also.... This clan doesn't only play one specific battlefield / game.... Wouldn't it be a better idea to mix up the wallpaper in the bagground with the different games that you're playing? such as BFH, BF4, CSGO etc. in once picture ?

You can see this from two perspecitves: Either all three to make it suitable for the clan in general, or BFH to get everyone hyped for BFH as that is the game comming out soon.

The positioning is great, and

The positioning is great, and the name on the badge looks great as well.

Few things that could make it better imo:

  • The text on the right side is distracting, so I'd personally choose for subtle text only (like the badge)
  • Since the site is built on a gray colorscheme, a bit more color would be nice (maybe a blurred hardline wallpaper instead of black background
  • The resolution of the soldier seems a bit low, I don't know if it's possible to improve that?

The issue is that the text is

The issue is that the text is really big, and website backgrounds are usually not meant to containt any text.

I've tried some myself, maybe you could edit them a bit?

I liked the way you edited the badge and the sign. I was wondering if you could put them in the first picture. Maybe some other subtle things like on the police car?

I can give it a go on the vehicle, but I'm not sure it's going to look that well with my low skill set in Photoshop....

That's exactly what I was

That's exactly what I was thinking of Smile Except the perspective seems a bit odd...

Could you edit the sign, badge and car in this picture (it's a different scale without the text).

The text on the motorcycle looks cool as well, but will be hidden behind the site, so don't do that if it takes too much time Smile

Kiwi - i've added the photoshop file down below for you to download, then you can play with sizes and perspectives yourself so you can it as you wanted (soldier have been added).... I've named all layers so it's easier for you to look though and if you need any help, i can assist if needed.
