Your Turn: Moving Desktop Wallpaper for Gamers

Introduction to Moving Wallpapers
Moving Wallpaper Pack #1: Warcraft and Skyrim
Moving Wallpaper Pack #2: Reader Requests, World of Warcraft

Moving Wallpaper Pack #3: Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft coming soon!
Moving Wallpaper Pack #4: City Collection, World of Warcraft coming soon!

We’ve been hard at work with our beta testers (special thanks to @Rezznul) to specialize the gamer animated desktop wallpapers for a wide variety of desktop computers.

While we’re working on perfecting the technical side of the experience, I thought it would be fun to open the process up to the community, getting your feedback for the next set of wallpapers.

Just email disciplinaryaction@yahoo.comwith a screenshot from World of Warcraft, Skyrim, or Star Wars: The Old Republic that you think would make a good moving desktop background. We’ll take a look at all the submissions at noon on Sunday, July 1, and turn one (or possibly several) into animated wallpapers.

Good luck!

Moving Desktop Wallpaper: Grizzly Hills, World of Warcraft

Introduction to Moving Wallpapers
Moving Wallpaper Pack #1: Warcraft and Skyrim
Moving Wallpaper Pack #2: Reader Requests, World of Warcraft
Moving Wallpaper Pack #3: Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft coming soon! Moving Wallpaper Pack #4: City Collection, World of Warcraft coming soon!

I found the most beautiful Skyrim wallpaper from Dead End Thrills and put it on my Mac. It was great; I could almost see the trees blowing in the breeze, or maybe the occasional dragon hurtling past a distant mountain top.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful, I thought, if you could have a desktop wallpaper that did move a little- not just annoying fish flying past, but maybe the slow sunrise over Mulgore in World of Warcraft, a wintery day outside Solitude in Skyrim, a Tython waterfall in Star Wars: The Old Republic? A wallpaper with just the tiniest bit of movement would make a computer monitor seem so much less like a computer and so much more like a window.

To run, download DreamScene Video Wallpaper (PC) or VLC Media Player (Mac)- more technical info below.

Warcraft: Faction & Race Icons and Backgrounds

I stumbled across an absolutely beautiful series of Warcraft race icons, and immediately had to start playing with them. The original images for these icons were created by the wonderfully talented ropa-to, who created them as a series of tattoos- check out all of his awesome work while you’re there!

I thought it would be fun to run his original black and white designs through Illustrator to create some variations on ropa-to’s theme, taking inspiration from Vector Mill’s crate packages (creator Ryan Putnam also runs the indispensible free vector tutorial site vectips.com).

The first series is a ballpoint pen style, and the second is a carved wood style.

As ever, enjoy the icons and backgrounds for your personal, non-profit use.

Warcraft Christmas Crafts, 2011: WoW Beer Bottle Labels

Last year for Christmas, Disciplinary Action created a series of print-and-stick potion labels as our little gift from us to you! It was awfully fun to put them together, and several people sent us delightful shots of their intrepidly finished potion bottles (the bottles absolutely put the labels to shame).

This year, we created a series of Warcraft Beer Bottle labels to assist in your holiday fun! Simply print them out on full-sheet label paper, cut out, and slap over that boring old Budweiser label for a Winter Warcraft beverage experience. We’ve even delivered a six-pack of labels to cover all your bases.

Sprockit Stout, Stormwind Imperial Stout, and Undercity Very Pale Ale were created just for our DA Christmas gift, but Thunder Bluff Honey Wheat, Liquid Goggles, and Longer Stranger Lager were designed specifically for Kamalia at Kamalia Et Alia as part of Blog Azeroth’s Furtive Father Winter exchange.

Enjoy!
