Experiments: Pix for My Phone

I'm experimenting with pictures for wallpaper on my new Droid Pro smartphone.

I rapidly figured out that it was not showing all of a given photo, but I thought that if I made a picture the stated screen resolution size (320 × 480 pixels), it would center that and put grey or something on the secondary screens that you get when you scroll sideways.

Nope. It enlarged the blessed image to fill the secondary screens as well.

So back to the drawing board ... and before that, back to Google.

OK, it turns out that the image size I actually want is 640 × 480 ... twice the width of the screen itself, and I need to make sure that the 320-wide bit in the middle shows my desired picture. So I've kludged a couple of my first experiments by doodling in the right and left margins. They're uploaded here. I'm using the "framed" one at the moment, and I'll start over again with the other pictures I liked, because I don't have to crop them quite the same way.

(I need a "doing arty stuff" icon - does anyone know where there's any color art of Soubi or Kio from Loveless being artsy?)

I can't seem to find anything useful in scans from Kouga Yun's artbooks -- would anime screencaps do?

Eh, maybe ... only if you are in the mood to do that. Kouga's artwork is so messy, it's hard to know!

I made more wallpapers, imouto-chan - just posted them. I think I have the knack now!

Bah, looks like the same issue I had trying to find a good scene of Shenhua to screencap -- the anime does include that flashback scene where Soubi and Kio are in the dorm room? studio? talking about how Soubi paints butterflies, with easels everywhere in the background and Soubi kneeling on the floor working on one of his paintings: but there's never a good clear frame of either of them with a brush in hand. Sorry! :/

Thanks for trying! I should probably dig up some scans and do some hand-coloring.
