Thx for this Andreas mate!
Since the awesome copper effect only works under AGA I thought of grabbing a screenshot of the copper effect (from ClassicWB) and appying the Tomahawk onto it

After converting the image to Rebel's 16 color palette and applying Floyd-Steinberg dithering via ImageStudio... It looks pretty cool on my A600!!!

Hmm ideas for amiga wallpapers...

I really like that wallpaper with the "worn" commodore logo in the top right screen.

What would be awesome is to see this logo as some sort of watermark and with increased size in the mid screen.

Yes! Or... No . Or both :-) the original is great by itself aswell, just bigger en centered. It really looks great the scrap metal style.

Another idea i had all a sudden is the scrap C= logo as scrap (or rusty) metal on the bottom of a sea/lake so ive attached a wallpaper suitable for this. Like ankered into the sand . That would be awesome for blue themed workbench! (the sunbeams shining upon the logo are already there )

Speaking of blue themes, here is the wallpaper I currently have on my PC desktop after combining two of Andreas' creations:

Pretty cool man! Well done!
...Although...you need to shrink a bit the keys (making it look a bit closer to reality). Every key is 2xFire button!

Nice, Alki - please share! (although it must be relatively easy to do - I admit to never having tried)

I kind of like it that way, out of proportion. It facilitates the double-ah effect, which is what happens when people see the desktop. The first "Ahhhhh" is when they see the Tomahawk and the word Amiga, and the second "Ahhhhh" is when they notice that it's written with actual Amiga keys.

Here they are: 4:3 16:9

Since the image has so high resolution you could just crop it to accomplish just that.

Hmm.. is that from the scanned boxes? In that case, I actually didn't scan it. Looks pretty good though, from that distance anyway.

This reminds me of the latest Immortal 4 CD booklet - is it the same pic?
