The third and final (maybe not *lol*) wallpaper from my inspired-by-God is-ad series.

I’ve got way better at font selection, but I spent gigantic amount of time on lyrics!! Compared to the previous two wallpapers (NEAL & ANDY), I was more familiar with DC songs, so I thought it’d be much easier to work on this one.

HA! THINK AGAIN! Because I know the songs and I love these lyrics, it means, instead of a word/phrase from each song, I wanted to use every single line from each song that I had to remind myself: this is a 1280×800 photoshop file, not a newspaper *headdesks*

Anyway, all lyrics from Analog Heart and David Cook, plus Make Believe, You & I, We’re Only Honest When We’re Sleeping, Souvenir and This Year (actually, I was thinking about other unreleased songs from DCTR too, but decided against that thought because a) I’ve only heard snippets of those songs, and b) I ran out of space already *lol*).

David’s photo was taken at Seattle show back in August’09, second row, smack right in the middle, the best place to die ♥ Removing Kyle’s drum set behind him took me a while, but not as bad as trying to create that blotchy background of nothingness *adds too many random layers* XD

90+ layers for final product, took me 3 days~ At least photoshop didn’t crash this time *lol*


1280×800

    Wow, this is so gorgeous! I love the pic, I love the background and I definitely love the lyrics! Amazing work!

    I was just wondering, would be it possible to get this as 1024×768 (and maybe the Andy one too – which BTW, along with the Neal one, is also super gorgeous!)? :)

  9. kissmo says:

    Yes, the background is really superb..The lights give a special effect to the wallpaper…

    thank you! umm, I’m really sorry, please don’t kill me, but I’m not sure about 1024×768 because of the proportions thing, it’ll need more top/bottom portion. This one (and Andy, too) has a bunch of layers to edit, while Neal was an easy one because I just threw a black background behind it and tada! lol

    glad you like it :)

    Aww, that’s too bad. :( But understandable, I guess… I’ll just continue using your “pink obsession” one then. :D

  12. Gorgeous! Love love love it!! Nice work.

  13. BTW, it looks FABULOUS as my desktop picture. :-) Luffly.

    I just found your site in looking for a new David Cook wallpaper for my desktop. So this one’s an old photo…it’s still GORGEOUS. I love the typography work, too. I’m a graphic designer, and know that took a long time to do! Thanks for sharing! : D
