NP & you're welcome. If you want me to do something with that older pic, let me know.
Hey choccy, Since I've done several for you, I'm going to give kezyrage a shot at this one. He's new here and he's asked to be included here as a contributor. Some help and variation in styles never hurts.
@ kezyrage -
Ok, man, it's all yours. choccy's got a Desire, so the resolution is 960x800. Take it away!
Alright, I think that I have asked enough of you but you do such good work that I just had to see if there was anything you could do with Killswitch Engage, Ironman, Batman: The Dark Knight. I would love any and all of these, heck, even a Chicago Cubs one too. I really hate asking for all of this, and this could be if you ever get some free time, no rush at all. Thanks again, my DX has never been this happy with the wallpapers I get from you!
Yo F150 - Thanks.
Yeah, as you say, when I'm not to busy with other requests, is most likely about right. Although, things have been a little slow in here the last few days, so you never know. I'll start trying to knock a few of those out for you, as time permits. Gotta keep the regulars happy too!
And maybe the new guy, kezyrage, will give a one or more of them a go. Waiting to see what he brings to the table. Most of the other contributors seem to have faded away over time, and I like to see some different looks around here. We'll see...
Alright gang, I've been seeing the Android Central wallpaper wallpaper around a lot, and as I think of them as the Gary's Old Town Tavern to our Cheers , I thought we should have our own. So here's my first try at the (unofficial) Official AndroidForums wallpaper. I tried to keep it simple to appeal to the majority of the members here. Let's hear what you think and any ideas you may have on possible improvements.
These are sized at 960x854 to work with all Android phones, with little or no cropping of anything major necessary.
To save them at the full 960x854, enlarge on the linked page with magnifying glass or use download button. If your phone's browser wont save it full size, or it looks fuzzy, download and save it with a computer, then USB or email the full sized version to your phone. You can also use the Share button on the page to email it to your phone.

Awesome Teyebeam (see what i did there)
Think you should PM phases/rob (will get a response from phases WAY sooner though)about doing a whole android forums wallpaper pack or something. AC has some cool sh*t out there, papers, widgets, etc. Only thing they lacking in is forums!! We need to step it up some. Once the AF app comes outta beta maybe there could be some eyebeam original wallpapers included or something. Just a thought
Thanks Eybeam, and no rush at all. I even came up with another one. I know, I am a huge pain in the rear but if you could also throw in an Arctic Cat snowmobile one, something with the logo is fine, that would be great. Thanks again! Oh, and nice work on the Android Forums ones!
Gee, thanks, Link (see what I did there? ).
Depending on the response and level of interest, I was thinking of doing an icon pack to go along with the (unofficial) Official AF wallpapers, however those end up. I don't know if that's something anyone would want or not, so I guess we'll just see... More input is needed.
Ok F150, I'll put that one in the "To Do at Some future Time" file with the others.
Ok F150, here's the Dark Knight part of your request. As I've said, I'll get to the others... well, when I do. As usual, let me know what you think of it.
Seems as if I'm having bad luck, even the smaller version won't work properly on my phone, I can't seem to get the couch centered fully on my first screen, about a quarter of it ends up on the second screen. >.<
That's odd. Seems centered to me. Are you using a home replacement app that lets you change the default home screen?
LP+, it might be doing that because I have wallpaper scrolling on, problem being if I turned it off I would lose the effect I was going for.
I'm debating taking another approach, something a bit more "minimalistic". Do you have any ideas as far as somewhat "minimalist" wallpapers that aren't to "boring"?
Ok, that LP+ must be the issue. Tested on my Hero, and it's centered nicely. Have you tried changing your home screen # in LP+? Your home screen should be #4 of 7
As far as ideas on a minimalist type wallpaper, I'm going to need something to go on here.
Thats the problem, I have zero ideas. All the "minimalist" wallpapers I have are something just like blank wood (looks like wood to me) walls or something of that nature.
I guess without a picture the only "something" I could give would be a background that doesn't have some form of incredibly distracting picture. Kind of like the background in the screenshot below. (Sorry, I'm not very good at explaining this type of thing when I'm having just as much trouble myself. >.>)
Ok, I'll think on it a bit. I should have something for you this evening.
Alright. I appreciate it quite a bit, especially since you have to put up with how picky I am.
MAN i would lov to see a wallpaper of high quality ol-school monsters
( warewolf, dracula, swamp thing, frankinstein, etc
and as always my EVO is my lil whore
Hmmm... I'll see what I can do on that one. Working on one ahead of you, so probably late tonight or tomorrow.
@ ToastPwnz -
Ok, here's something I liked that I started for something else, but it wasn't working for me on that project. So I've added a few touches to it and am now calling it done. Is this still too much going on? If not, am I on the right track?

Looks good, another nice outcome.
I'll set it up on my phone in a little and let you know the outcome, thanks again.
Turned out quite nice, now I need to find a set of text icons that have all the apps I use, and I'll be good. Might just end up making my own.
Great, glad you liked the way it turned out (I do too ). And thanks for posting the screenshot. I like seeing how it all comes together. Looks really nice, but I agree that some different icons would look better. Keep me updated and let me know if you need anything else.
Amazing, as usual. That is really awesome. Thanks Eyebeam!
@ F150 -
You're welcome and glad it works for you.
@ Crazyish -
Hang in there, yours is still coming. Got a little busy today. Wife got a new kitten and we go several inches of snow (MCat, where are you? ). I should have something for you before today is over.
Ok, here's my try at this. My brother is the true old horror flick fan, but alas, he not only doesn't make wallpapers, he doesn't even have a cell phone! If you like this one, I'm thinking of giving the Swamp Thing one a shot as well. I remember my dad taking me to see that when I was a kid (of coarse he only went to see Adrienne Barbeau's boobs ). Good fun!
Anyway - For this one I decided less is more. If you think it needs something else, I can do that too. Let me know what you think.
