This picture was a fun one for me to make. It took hours of work, but it was worth it.
This is a compilation of a lot of pictures. Since I do my work on Photoshop CS I use layers, and for
this picture I have 29 layers of pictures/text/effects. Only about four things in the picture are actually official
artwork. The rest are pictures I searched for on Google. I found the shields and had to fix the colors on some
of them. I had to "cut" out each one myself (which took a while - even using the helpful tools on Photoshop CS).
For the official "The Chronicles of Narnia" logo - I had to "cut" that out myself - it took a long time. The background
picture looks really nice - it was an actual picture taken by my dad when my parents were at Lake Louise in Canada.
I fixed it up a lot, but it is still the main thing. If you look carefully down at the bottom of the picture (it is
easier to see on the version of this wallpaper that doesn't have the "credits" at the bottom) you can see a "reflection" of
Aslan. I took this from a book cover for the whole Narnia series. The moon in the background may look a bit real,
but is really a white "glob" that I put gray "splotches" on. For the stars in the sky and on the water, I tried to make
it look as if they have their own constellations, just like we do. You can see a cross (or sword) above-right of the
moon and a partial shield to the left of the picture. The swords, dagger, and axes were all found on web pages (except
the sword on the black striped shield). The dagger I thought could represent what the White Witch used to kill Aslan
on the Stone Table. Please go to Narniafans.com or Narniaweb.com to find out more about Narnia.
This was the first wallpaper that I made that centers on Narnia and the upcoming movie, The
Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I used official artwork and unofficial artwork combined.
The official artwork is the Walden Media logo, the "The Lion, etc..." logo, the sword, the
swirly thing behind "The Chronicles..." logo, and of course, the background (which is official, but it was actually a few
official pictures pasted together by a fan(s) on one (or more) of the Narnia websites). The fonts are not official -
including the Walt Disny Pictures one - I have that font on my computer. It looks real, and it may very well be, but
I typed it out myself. One thing that I like is that it all looks pretty real. The "credits" down at the bottom
took a while to type, because I typed it in the style used by the professionals. I really like this one - and it is
available in different colors as well. I changed the tones (even for this one) from the original - now there is a variety
in the Wallpaper section. Enjoy!
