    Any chance for 1920x1200 versions? I wish people did 16:10 first because that can always be easily cropped down to 16:9. :P
    If you're not bothered I can try to photoshop some of these into 1920x1200.


    This. @OP: awesome wallpapers, man

    These wallpapers are very simple.

    I would recommend you something much more rich art as an artistic wallpaper which I would like to use it on my desktop more than 2 years like this :D

    This is a good example to a rich wallpaper for a game :D

    Left, right and buttom sides should be clear, dark, blured or should have an effect which makes icons and texts much more visible

    Also UWE's own art conecpts were really nice, i used many of them many days

    They are not meant to be anything more than simple, I did not intend to spend so much time on them. They are closer to simple doodles that people can use for wallpapers if they wish, complex images for me take up to 15-20+ hours of work and that is just more than I am willing to do right now. But maybe someday =)

    I also don't have the luxury of overprainting in-game screens like gw2 ;P I have to make all my backgrounds and assets and stuff from scratch :(

    I think Guildwars 2 has better basis than NS2... ;) NS2 is just walls basically. Of course you can make beautiful art out of Guildwars 2 because the environment ingame is 100 times more beautiful than NS2. After all, they got way more people working on GW2 than NS2 so obviously. All you have to do in GW2 is to take a basic screenshot, and photoshop the ###### out of it, and it looks beautiful. With NS2 you'd have to make the environment yourself in PS cause it's not even close as good looking, and that's not the purpose of NS2 either i guess. 15-20 hours of work maybe for NS2, not for GW2, way less ;)

    I wouldn't say GW2 art style is *better*, just different. It's hard to compare an open world fantasy MMO to a close quarter combat sci-fi based FPS (I would pick cramped, gloomy sci-fi anyday over the completely overly-done fantasy styles), I have a huge appreciation for the art style in NS2.. they did a fantastic job 'bringing the game into the future' while staying very loyal to the artistic roots that made NS1 very unique.. the art in motion/actual gameplay looks awesome and fluent too which I imagine was really hard to accomplish with the aliens being so...alien and potentially awkward looking. I think the in-game environments look really great too... but again, not really comparable to something like GW2, they are just polar opposite in terms of art style.


    someday I hope I'm as awesome as Cory =P


    (p.s. I would spend 15-20 hours on anything really, because I am slow/[email protected] art)

    Every time you ask for troubleshooting without providing system info, ATI adds a rendering bug for an upcoming game.

    When you feel you need to be rude or angry about a game, just read these links and remember what role you are playing:

    The artwork in all of these is incredible, but I can't use any of them for wallpapers because of the light colouration in the majority of space. All the desktops I use are largely dark to provide better contrast. Also I've a pet peeve with Logos or URLs in wallpapers.

    These are problems on my end though :P, great work!

    I can't believe I only just noticed these. This is fantastic work! I particularly like the Gorge and Lerk ones.

    Damn! Well done Rant! Quick, somebody get this guy a Squad 5 badge ASAP!


    I'm quite interested to see what you'll do for Marines. I think the MAC should get an "action shot", or perhaps one of him finally retrieving that coffee he's promised me for so long. :P

    haha, hello playtesters :P glad you guys like them. I think someday I will put a lot of effort into a proper fanart for the game, these are just fun quick things I made. (wouldn't have thought to do a MAC one, but now that I think about it, he is sort of the under-appreciated gorge-esque role in the marine team)

    He must hold something in his "hand"... wrench, coffee mug, anything :)

    Kinda to think of it coffee mug with TSA and marine logo would be epic

    Gorge in superior 1920x1200 form factor. It's my favourite and incidentally was the easiest to shoop. Not perfect but close enough.

    Please someone resize the lerk too, I like all of them, but I prefer to have a more simpler one as my wallpaper. :)

    thanks guys, in the future I will make them 1920x1200. I am not terribly savvy with the most popular screen resolutions so I just used my own :s

    Thanks for the wallpapers!

    1920x1200 was the widescreen resolution to go, but it seems they're now adapting 16:9 more oftenly.

    I made a background for Ryne's livestream but it actually works decent as a desktop as well so figured I would post it here in case anyone liked it :s I obviously didn't draw any of it, just a bit of handy work with the Model Viewer and some love in photoshop.

    I'm sorry it's in 1920x1080! that was the twitch stream resolution :/
