Drum roll, please..

You may or may not have noticed. This year is coming to an end. Is it that time of the year again?.. Yes it is! :D
If you've been on this forum for some time you probably know about the GDC wallpaper calendar. People on GDC collaborate to make 12 wallpapers with a Green Day theme. You can use them for your computer or laptop, or print them out to hang on your wall. The wallpaper calendar doesn't just have holidays and important events on it, but also important events and anniversaries related to Green Day.

So, what's not to like? If you'd like to contribute, simply make a post saying which month you'd like to make, and include a link to your art thread/put some graphics in a spoiler so we know you know how to make a wallpaper. The first one who called dibs on a month will get it, and I'll edit this OP to put your name on the list.

The deadline for the wallpapers is December 20th.

Be as creative as you like! To get an idea of what you can do, take a look at the previous calendars:
2010: http://www.greendayc...paper-calendar/
2011: http://www.greendayc...-calendar-2011/
2012: http://www.greendayc...-calendar-2012/

Keep in mind that not everyone has the same screen resolution. That's why we need every month in these three sizes:
1920 x 1200
1280 x 1024
1280 x 800

When you're done, either post the wallpapers here, or PM me with the links.

I think that's all there is to know right now. Any ideas or suggestions are more than welcome! Also, we don't just need graphic designers, but also people who would like to make a list with important events and holidays. I'll look for the one we used for this year, but it's always nice to make the calendar more complete.

One more thing: please only say you're going to contribute if you're really going to. This year the calendar was not complete due to people not making their wallpapers. If you find out you don't have the time for it anymore, please say so asap so someone else can make the month you chose instead.

Alright, let's do this! :D

Edit:
More drum roll please..

So glad you're doing this again, Kat. I will not take a month as I know my skills are shit! :) But I always love seeing how creative others are and always look forward to the new month's wallpaper. :)

Haha don't worry, I keep track of who wants which month whether it's on the list or not. I wanted to wait until more people replied.
Can you post something you made, like graphics or anything with a program like photoshop? :)

Does that mean you'd like to take November? Yeah sure you can join in!
Asking for artwork is just to make sure people don't post here just because they can. And it also looks stupid if you said you're going to contribute, and you end up being the only one doing nothing :lol: You might as well give someone who really loves to contribute a chance.

Okay cool! I don't really mind what month, but after some thought can I do September? But here's a quick portfolio of my graphics - I don't have a lot of experience on a real program. http://www.greendayc...hics-portfolio/

I don't really have any graphics, I haven't made anything in photoshop recently, and my signature is my favorite thing I've made in paint. Last year in school we scanned pictures we drew onto photoshop and added effects, but it wasn't too extensive. Do you want to see that? (It's more of my drawing than photoshop)? I know I can do this. I have photoshop and motivation. I loved the calendars last year and want to make one!

Edit: I forgot, I've made a lot of bootleg artwork, but just quick stuff in paint. I'm seriously gonna go all-out with this calendar. I'll link my folder
