Posted:I just uploaded my submission (:

i made it a while ago, and when i read 'Make a desktop relevant to the arts' i considered that accounted for visual/digital arts as well :S I'll be happy to take it down if 'The Arts' was meant to be something about fire twirling, and still just vote tho ^___^

Good luck to everyone thats entered

Posted:I'm guessing you could make a background with Sock Poi from Mal's wording, although that could look less dramatic than LEDs or fire toys

Posted:Aye.

But if you did a transition from sock to LED to nonlit fire to lit fire poi, it would be awesome! (presuming you did it right tongue2 )

Posted:Well, in my view a desktop background is not just a photo (although other people seem to disagree, judging by the entries).

I assume that LazyAngel is talking about taking a photo and modifying it in order to actually make a desktop background. Not just put a photo up.

Posted:yes I am modifying it - quite a lot - only a small portion of the original photo is used - and it's a photo of me (not that you could tell!)
