      A Few Guitar Ipod Wallpapers

      Here are a few electric guitar ipod touch or iphone wallpapers. They are 320 x 480 pixels, which is a perfect fit for the screen. I made them in photoshop. I know that they're not great, but these are the first few things i've made using photoshop.

      This one is a little too dark, but it was my very first picture; so i'm allowed a few mistakes right?



      Here's another ibanez, i like this one better. This is my current ipod touch wallpaper.



      Here's one i made for my sister. I wanted to use fender guitars, but she liked these better. I think they look like they came from a dollar store; no offense to anyone who may own one of these Dean guitars. Anyway, i think this one came out better than the other two. So here's one some of you girl guitarists might like.



      These are free for anybody to use. Again, i know they're not all that great, but hey, i'm just starting out. Comments anybody? Like them? Hate them? I'll be happy to take any constructive criticism, cause i'm always wanting to improve on the photoshop skills.

      I like the first two, that's my kinda style.
      The other one is good, just not my style.

      You should totally do a Les Paul one.

      I'm glad you two liked them. I really wouldn't use the third one myself, cause i don't like pink stuff and hearts. My sister just asked me to make her one with a pink and green guitar.

      @Slash112: You said the third one wasn't your style. I guess your talking about the girly look to it. Like i said, i wouldn't use it for background either. But do you think it is better to have one guitar vertical or have two guitars crossed?

      I'm planning on making more. Maybe using a Les Paul, Fender, or just something with a wicked, cool shape to it.

      Ah, it was just the way the colours were put together. Bright green and yellow, i just don't like that combination. I like darker colours myself.
      It certainly doesn't make the artwork bad though.

      The crossed over guitars were also good imo. But personally I prefer one guitar on it's own. I'm not sure if that would be vertical only, maybe a slight angle to it would give it something more, I don't know to be honest.

      Thanks, i'll try a single guitar with an angle to it. For some reason, i had set in my mind that the guitars had to be perfectly vertical, but the angle sounds like it would make it look better.

      Yea, I just thought it MIGHT be good like that, but I really don't know to be honest. And I love the way you did the first two anyway.

      Here's another one. I have to say that i got lazy when extracting the render this time. I used the magic wand instead of the pen tool; so i think the quality suffered a little because of that. There was too much white left around the guitar's edge. I didn't notice all of the white left over until i had finished. Anyway...

      Here's a green Ernie Ball Musicman guitar, which is a Petrucci favorite. Petrucci is the bomb! This is the guitar that i wish i could afford.

      You should do one with a Jackson King V.

      The guitars have rough edges of pixelation. The very first one (blue) has anti-aliasing problems, with white pixels clearly visible at the bottom left of the guitar.

      Yep. You could either change the tolerance in the crop or perhaps feather a couple pixels and that might work as well, or just manually erase whatever necessary.

      I think they're decent, just the brushes you're using are for some reason bugging me, they seem a little stretched and blurry where there should be sharpness. A lot of the times the guitar seems to be too "close" to the background as well, so maybe adding something like a very subtle glow or shadow would fix that a bit.

      Good premise though, keep it up.

      Ok, i saw what you meant in the first pic. I'll have to work on getting the render out without the white edges.

      So the brushes are too blurry? I saw a guide somewhere say something about using the blur tool on the background. I'll try it without the blur on the background. I'll also try the glow or shadow on the guitar. Thanx everybody for the tips.

      I dont mind the blur of the background brush, it makes the guitars stand out more.

      I was about to suggest to use guitars with textures, like the flamed maple top on the Ernie Ball Musicman, but I saw you did one. I'd like to see one with a guitar that features a quilted maple top - those are the most beautiful guitar finish textures I've ever seen. You can get some more background texture ideas to match it since it's more wavy and watery than the flamed maple that you've worked with already.

      I agree that quilted maple top looks awesome. In fact, my ibanez has gray quilted maple top. Maybe i should do one with my guitar and of course one with a les paul and jackson king v since Slash and Lzen mentioned them.

      Although I'm not a fan of the Jackson King V (I'm a Rhoades fan all the way though!) I'd love to see what you could do with one of those.

      I'm not sure why, but they do look better on an ipod, rather than on a computer screen. I probably would have made some more by now, but i've been playing Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance (N.O.V.A.) for ipod touch and iphone. It's easy to get addicted to the online play. I also downloaded rosetta stone (not for $1000 for the full package ,but for free ). I'm trying to learn Japanese. So i've been kind of busy lately.
