    Hi there, I want to compete. But last time the voting wasn’t really honest. There should be a more fair voting system. For example you choose the winner. And not with a poll system. last time, it worked by how many friends you send a link I think.

  3. hello123456 says:

    May you use a style you have seen in a tutorial on another site?

    And secondly, could you provide us with a HV-Designs logo with transparant background to work with?

    it will be the viewers who cast the deciding vote. Also if your thinking about taking part, id think twice about posting up false torrents linking to your entry to get more votes.

    you may use any resources you want as long as all stock images, icons, brushes etc… are credited in the flickr description.

    Also the wallpaper doesnt have to contain the hv-designs logo, just the name hv-designs.

    I know it doesn’t have to, but I’m having inspiration for one with it, thats why.

    Oh man. I haven’t opened Photoshop in a while. I’m also not very good at wallpapers. I might give it a chance, however, I’m not promising anything. Good luck to the rest of you! :)
