Gustav Wallpaper by nickman983 Gustav Wallpaper by nickman983
First time vectoring a non-pony character from the show and first time making an attempt (and failing) at making a wallpaper :dummy:

So here's a wallpaper of Gustav's mischievous face in Pinkie's flashback. The background is fairly simplistic mainly because I don't really have any programs I could make a creative background with, and I'd also probably spend a while just trying to figure out what the hell I'd make the background look like :shrug:

If anyone of you who make those crazy good wallpapers wants to repair the damage I've done ( *COUGH* *COUGH* HINT HINT!!) I'll gladly upload Gustav alone.
Alternatively you could go download the SVG file found here:[link] and delete the background layer.

EDIT: Played around with some filters, so hopefully it should now look a little bit better and less bland :dummy: Thanks to :iconitstigzz: for giving me his opinion on the multiple edits I went through :la:

Original can still be found here:[link] tell me which you think is better. Critique is appreciated!!

You should have added some kind of filter to make it look more like the really old black and white movies.

Yea, I know D: I'm just not all too sure how I'd go about doing that in inkscape. I did a little fooling around with some filters and put it in my stash [link] to show someone, so you could check it out and tell me if that looks any better....umm... if that's ok with you:iconfluttershyshyplz:

Sweet :D glad that playing around with some of those filters made it look better and not worse XD I'm just happy it isn't so bland as it was before :P

It isn't all that great :P I probably could have probably done something better with the background :shrug: I got bored, remembered this scene and and decided to make it quickly :P I'll be doing another Gustav vector with normal colors in the near future though :D

The backgrounds fine, it matches the old-style of the flash back. :D

And if you want to make it better why not try out sepia tone and some film grain? I reckon that would spice up the wallpaper pretty well XD
