View Full Version : [wallpapers] Fall is here!... almost

09-08-2007, 11:26 PM
Welcome to another wallpaper contest! The last contest was a bunch of fun and had some great walls. I hope to see lots of great wallpapers this time around, too!

your mission, if you choose to accept it: make a wide-screen wallpaper with fall trees

This is one of the most requested contests I get. Wide-screen monitors are getting popular but there aren't too many anime wallpapers out there for them. Let's change that! Since fall will be here... sometime... let's do it with a fall theme.

dimensions: wide-screen walls only. I use 1680x1050, but please feel free to use one of the others listed below if that fits your monitor size:
images: anime and fall trees. your choice!
size: reasonable! I'll let you know if it is too big.
don't steal: If you use a photo (for example, from the new photo forum) you must ask for permission before using it. Don't forget to cite!
Put AnimeGalleries.net somewhere on the wallpaper
deadline is Sunday,Sept 23

Please don't spam this thread! Only use it to add wallpapers and ask questions about the contest

How many trees do I need to add?: You can add as many or as little as you like! But there must be at least 1 tree with fall leaves visible in your wallpaper. How you want to put it in is up to you. :)

Can I alter a tree image to make it have fall colors?: Of course! Work that photoshop magic! However, if it is someone else's photo, please get permission before doing anything to it.

I like fall trees but... what about the anime?: This isn't a tree only wallpaper contest (though you can if you like!). Please feel free to incorporate fall trees into your wallpaper however you like.

Do I have to add the whole tree or are branches ok: You can add as much or as little of the tree(s) as you like.

Where do I submit the wallpaper?: add it here! Don't forget to add your name and animegalleries.net to the wall, though. If you don't want to or can't, please PM me and we can talk about other ways to submit.

(yes, my answers are a little vague. I want you to use your creativity!)

Happy walling! :D :D

a new contest!haha.im so happy.lol.XD

When you say fall trees, does it have to fill the entire screen? or can there just be like one fall tree in the backround?

09-09-2007, 03:00 AM
if we want to use a picture in our area of fall trees but none have changed yet or significantly changed... well what Im asking is if altering pics to look fall-ish is allowed?

09-09-2007, 06:10 AM
I dont care how many trees you put in, but I have to be able to see at least one tree with fall leaves somewhere in the picture. :)

Altering pics is totally fine, but if it is someone else's photo, ask permission first.

Thanks for your questions! I added them to the first page to help out everyone. :)

Ok, I am slightly confused.

Is this a trees only wallpaper or can we put anime characters in there too?

09-09-2007, 07:43 PM
Ah yes I'm in!

I will edit my post with my entry as soon I am done with it. ^_^

Being an anime site and all, there can be (and highly encouraged!) an anime character in it. I just want to see fall-colored trees in there, too. :)

Okay, one more question.
Are sakura cherry blossoms/trees considered fall trees?
EX: The trees in this picture (http://jankanpo.deviantart.com/art/Sakura-Cherry-Blossoms-31913697)

Maru: Thanks. I'm sorry. I'm not very plant knowledgized. ><;;;;

Im pretty sure cherry blossoms only blossom during the spring

09-14-2007, 08:05 AM
sorry, but Maru is right! Sakura are definitely a spring tree. I'm looking for trees with reds, oranges, yellows... that sort of thing.

09-14-2007, 08:48 AM
Another question. (I'd have edited but I was afraid you might not see it.) If you can only see a part of the tree, like say maybe a few branches and leaves, will it be accepted?

09-14-2007, 05:42 PM
here's my entry ^-^ i hope my tree/half tree's ok....if not please tell me so that i can edit my wall ^-^ oh and hopefully the size isn't too big -_-

Um, one question what if someone wins what will they recieve? Money? I am deeply deeply in need of money right now x_x.

09-14-2007, 07:25 PM
Alright, here you go. The size is 1680 by 1050.

09-15-2007, 04:30 AM
To answer the last couple of questions:

You can put in as much or as little of the tree as you like.

As for prizes, I usually give a gift and some gold as well as a cheesy super cool banner!

The front post will have all the answers to all your questions. <3

Ok I'm new, but I'll be brave. Here's my entry. ^^;

09-16-2007, 12:49 AM
Baaah, I'm procrastinating again.

Okay, I finished my awful entry. I can never do wallpapers T_T)
But I love to enter for the fun of it! Here you go Pookeh!!!!♥
But just one question, is my wallpaper allowed? Because I didn't use trees, instead I used leaves.

09-17-2007, 10:31 PM
leaves are from trees, so its ok.

09-17-2007, 10:42 PM
Um, the add attachment button thing won't work for me so I can't present a thumbnail.

But here's the URL:

So if someone could edit that for me, I'd appreciate it.

09-18-2007, 05:22 AM
dont forget to put your name on it!

09-18-2007, 08:42 AM
dont forget to put your name on it!

That's a requirement?

09-18-2007, 09:02 AM
it's a good habit to get into, so that no one steals it.

09-18-2007, 07:19 PM
But not a requirement?

09-18-2007, 09:00 PM
Ok, name added. Attachment thing still not working.

Edit, please, thanks!

And done! Here's my wall. I'm actually pretty proud of it.haha.XD

09-19-2007, 02:43 PM
Hi everyone,

here is my entry.
I'll refine it a bit more till the contest ends if I'll find the time. But since I don't know if I can manage, I post it now anyway.

Have fun,

09-19-2007, 06:11 PM
Yay! I actually have time for this contest. My entry is 1600x1024. :)

one word of advice. Most people put their names on the bottom of the wallpaper. That way the task bar covers it. :)

09-24-2007, 11:52 AM
*rushes in all out of breath*

I was having connection errors last night, so I couldn't post my wall. But if you'll still take it I'd really appreciate it! Hope I didn't miss the deadline. ;_;

Btw, Serated did the extraction, he said he didn't care about me crediting him, but he deserves some credit.

09-24-2007, 03:53 PM
Seeing as the thread is still open, I'll just post my entry.. don't expect much, this is a real quick one I did
