Old School Hack Wallpaper part II

Yep, Kirin commented on my post over on Google+ and well, that inspired me. Ways I see it, not all of us are blessed with awesome wives who get them an iPad, some of us are stuck with out laptops or desktops and those are in need of some OSH lovin' as well.

First thing I did was go back to my iPad design that people seemed to like, I embigguned it, dropped in the map, did a little texturing.  And here you go. Click all images for a larger version of it.

That was ok, but I was not really happy with it. I wanted something that really reflected the Old School Hack mantra of fast, furious, crazy fun. And when I think of that, I naturally turn to my old friend, Death Dealer.

(I did not do the art here, found it somewhere on the web ages ago and just rediscovered it on my hard drive. If it is yours and you don't like it, let me know and I will remove it. If you know who the artist is, let me know. And no, this is not the original Frazetta .)

That felt pretty good, just needed something. That little "umph!" that screamed Old School Hack! So I tried again.

I liked that, but felt the white was a little too contrasting for my tastes, but I liked the saying so I played around with it a bit and ended up with the following. Make sure you click it to load the full size image.

Yeah, that about sums up my feelings right there. :)


  1. Saw these briefly before I had to bail out for the week. These rock my world.

  2. Thanks for the backgrounds. I adapted one to be my new blog banner!

  3. Awesome, glad you guys like them. That last one is currently my me some Death Dealer!
