So in the latest EGM issue I saw the Brawl spread and thought that the opening two page picture would make a great desktop background. Like in most cases, the scanned picture
didn't look as well as I had hoped since magazines and scanners don't play nice. Either way I figured I see what I could do with it and went about vectoring it, editing out the creases, and touching up parts that didn't turn out well. Considering the most photoshopping experience I have is doing pictures for Blindeside's contest and reproducing sprites in MS Paint back in the days of Windows 3.1, I'd say I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.
I made two sizes which I will include below. With the 1680x1050 size, I did both a textured and non-textured version (pictured above) since I think that the texture and vectoring makes it look a bit like water-color on a canvas. Enjoy! (Click on the magnifying glass on the bottom right of the picture to get the full size image.)
