    Here's a pair of matching desktops I've been using. Nothing fancy, just some Revenge of the Fallen promo renders with a little photoshopping. I tried to make the levels and colors more accurately match how they appeared in the Showest footage.

    lol, thanks. Photoshop's newish "refine edge" feature makes it a lot easier than it used to be. The white backgrounds were just too stark and hard to look at, IMO. Now everytime I look at my main monitor Megatron's coming out of the dark to get me.

    The Megatron version works really well. It's great.

    Although I prefer to use a lighter tone wallpaper because my screen is a glossy screen ; black WP makes the light reflections a bit more annoying to me.

    Yeah I hear you. That's why I was so appreciative of the character art being released as Transparent PNG files before the first movie. Made it a lot easier to do wallpapers and such.
