Wallpapers in 1920x1080

Post by EzeCoyote » Mon Feb 25, 2013 3:19 pm

So, I as roaming the game files for anything that could be used as wallpapers when I realized it's quite a shame all of these images are so low res. And I realize that it's basically VN tradition to be run in a window at the size of 800x600, but that doesn't make it less of a shame that such good art is basically impossible to use as wallpapers.

Well, I decided I'd go against the system, load up my Photoshop CS6 and open up what I could find and do my best to upscale it to 1920x1080 while maintaining at least some level of the original quality. Believe me, that's a hard task to do when you resize something almost three times its original size.

Luckily, I managed to get some decent progress at least.
I stuck with only the event CG, as the sprites don't exactly make for Wallpaper material. There's scene CG from every main character; Emi, Rin, Hanako, Shizune and Lilly, as well as some wallpapers for Hisao, Kenji and Misha. A lot of these are groupshots, and luckily those were large enough to upscale without any major issue, where as those with only one character in them tended to be lower res and thus harder to work with.
(I realize there's a bias towards Hanako in this but YOU WILL ALL HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT.)

They're all PG. I didn't work with any of the sex scenes under the train of thought that it's unusual for people to want nudity as their desktop wallpaper. Feel free to object!

Of course, given that they ARE after all upscaled, there will be quality loss. But hopefully I managed to remove too much of the upscaling damage. Don't worry, though, they're all the same aspect ratio, and cropped to fit the widescreen.

Here's the link; I hope you enjoy them!

If you have any requests, send me a PM. Although, I cannot guarantee that it will look good.

Those are quite nice. The roughest one IMO is the Misha/Mutou one.

BTW, the other girl in Shizune_andalsoIdontrememberwhotheotherchickis.jpg is Misha. :roll:

I hate to say it, but that's anime in a nutshell. When the most defineable aspect of a character is their hairstyle and not their facial definitions. :v

Sorry about that.

Thanks for the wallpapers man. 1920 x 1080 is my preferred format as well. I've even got a couple of Hanako walls floating around here. Maybe I should repost them in this thread.

Well, I suppose this could become as ort of "general" thread for wallpapers that resolution, so linking them I'll put them in the OP with credits to you.

Thanks kindly. They're nothing great, but someone might like them.

Thanks Coyote.

I just made another one of Hanako, but since I used other peoples art, I really don't want to load it onto DeviantArt. And Photobucket limits the size of uploads. :p

So long as you credit the people who make it, and ask for permission to upload it under those conditions, it should be fine! :P

Haven't been on the forums much recently, so I haven't checked back at this thread! That's an awesome wallpaper, Panda! Adding it to the OP!
