Wallpaper: Amazing Spider-Man Movie

I had this mostly finished on my computer and thought I should post it.

I enjoyed the movie but almost didn’t see it (Saw it in late July I believe). I would say it’s better than the Toby Maguire films. I’m not blaming the actors, it’s writing I liked more. To me Peter Parker in high school is the super smart guy who randomly cracks a joke. Maguire’s Spider-Man seemed more moody, sad, “woe is me” type. I don’t remember him being funny at all, goofy yes but not the smart-ass Spidey I remember reading about.

I started off making a more complex image with photos from different scenes in the movie but it seemed too cluttered. I love this image of Peter facing New York City so I decided to make it more simple and just add the text to the left. I’ve been on a very simplistic kick lately. I may try to make something more complex in the future.

Wallpaper: Iron Man 3

I wanted to start making wallpapers again so I looked at some of the movies coming out in 2013. I had completely forgotten this is coming out next summer. I started to poke around different sites when I noticed this image and immediately wanted it on my computer. I wasn’t a big fan of the big “3” they had in the middle of image so I removed that and the movie logos. This one is mainly for myself but incase anyone else wanted it, it’s there now. Enjoy!

NFL Wallpapers

Just a heads up that for the next 32 days this site is going to release an NFL wallpaper for each team. I was originally going to just one team, but I thought I should open it up to every team to just cover every one. So if you don’t like the NFL you are free to ignore us until September where I’ll be releasing more comic booky ones.

Enjoy!

New File Format

I noticed something when making my last Spider-man wallpaper, JPEG artifacts. I hated the way it looked so I decided to switch going forward to PNG. I’m pretty sure most current browsers won’t have a problem with them. I tested a few here and they all worked fine. So starting with the latest wallpaper, they’ll all be PNG. I don’t think I’ll go back and change the older ones because I haven’t noticed a problem like this before.

New Screen Resolutions

I decided to check out google analytics for this site recently and noticed in some of the top screen resolutions I don’t have wallpapers for those sizes. Biggest one being 1366 x 768 (Which I had never heard of before, turns out to be a netbook thing.) So starting with the Fringe wallpaper I added them. I’m going to go back and the files I still have I’ll create the extra resolutions for. The wallpapers with the HD resolution have the best chance of being converted over, but first I want to create them for the ones I’m currently working on. I tend to make wallpapers a head of time and tell the database to release them on a certain date.

So eventually any wallpaper with an HD resolution will have the following resolutions added:

  • 1920 x 1200
  • 1680 x 1050
  • 1600 x 1200
  • 1600 x 900
  • 1366 x 768

Any others that people would want feel free to leave a comment.

Cell Wallpaper (Updated with Link)

I recently got an anroid phone (HTC Incredible) and I’m thinking of making a few comic related wallpapers for it. I’ll toss in the Iphone resolution too (once I find it…). I’d like to figure out live wallpapers but that might be a bit over my head. I was also thinking of making some kind of android app for this site, but again with the over the head thing. I just know PHP not sure I have time to learn Java at the moment. Maybe if work needs an app I can learn then.

Also, I haven’t made a new wallpaper in a long time. I hope to fix that this week with atleast one new one. Sorry about the lack of updates.

Update! I made the mobile site live: http://m.heroicwallpapers.com/

Lost Theory on the Ghost of Christian Shephard

I have a small (and by small I mean massive) obsession with the TV show Lost. I think I started watching it during season 2. Picked up season 1 on DVD and watched it in one week. You could say I was hooked. It did have it’s ups and downs, mostly downs in the middle that is until they decided to end the story. With the end in sight the show has been great in my opinion. Which brings me to the purpose of this post…

I had a lost moment in the shower this morning… and no it wasn’t about Jack and Sawyer wrestling. It’s a theory about the Man in Black/Smokey. I believe that the ghost of Christian Shephard as been the Man in Black the entire time we’ve seen him on the island. Continue reading
