Wallpaper wash/tara request- photoshopers please consider!
Friday, January 26, 2007

so, this is the part where i explain that i have this WONDERFUL (imo) idea for a wallpaper that i would really like ot make....
...but alas, the most sophisticated program i have at my disposal is paint. i could go ahead and make it anyway, i've done it before (yes, in paint!) but there are countless of you here who could do a MUCH better job then me (ie, something other then just pictures on a page), so next is the part where i pitch the idea and try to get someone interested enough to make it.

alright, this requires a small amount of background info, i'll try to keep it short. i've been making my way through the buffyverse after checking disk 4 of firefly for the thousandth time just to make ABSOLUTELY SURE that there defanitly aren't any more eps. So i get to the end of season 6, and that thing happens... you know, the really horrible one that's just the worst thing ever. so anyway, i'm in a state of mourning similer to when wash croaked, and the two deaths struck me as such similer things... i mean, both were situations where just when you thought you were in the clear, bam, look what happens, utterly randomly and for no apparent reason. heartwrenching.

SO, i really wanted a wash/tara wallpaper (especially cause i've had such trouble finding buffy backgrounds w/ tara! everythings always about oz, whats up with that?), and this idea kinda formulated itself:

Here's what i've got for design thoughts: it'd be split in two horizontally, with some line or another seperating them. i dont really know what; first it was gonna be 'very bad deaths', but unless you've read the spider robinson book by that title, its pretty random, and even if you have, it doesnt REALLY apply. so then i was thinking 'horrible, gut-wrenching deaths that never should have happened and make you want to throw things', but that seemed excessively long. so i dunno, maybe you have some brilliant idea.
doesnt really matter which is on top/bottom, but on the left middle and right middle (again, unimportant which is which) you have willow and zoe, looking sad. for the tara half, the main part is her face doing that smaile; y'know, the signature one that kinda creeps up, where her mouth gets all wide and her eyes are all sparkly and- *ahem* no, i am NOT inching closer to insane fanboy status... well, maybe a little. anyway, for wash, i was thinking one of his 'flying' faces; "its ok! its ok..." w/ that weird intense look he gets. and then some kind of cool background (this is the part where i cant do it myself; i could put the pictures there, but thats about it), and maybe a smallish quote for each.

so, yeah, thats my thoughts, if i've inspired anyone to go make it, i'd be much obliged. if not, oh well.

Being in a similiar boat myself - i.e. having no image programs other tha MS Paint - I can't really take up the challenge. But I really love your idea, Miramel:D
