Sega's official wallpapers reworked for widescreen

Postby amitrius17 » Thu Jan 02 2014 4:53am

As you know, Sega didn't make any widescreen wallpapers for Shining Force RotDD since widescreen wasn't common back then. I decided to remedy the matter by flexing my Photoshop muscle :3

This wallpaper was easy. I recreated the dark clouds and carefully blended them into the artwork's existing clouds. I extended the tips of the dark dargon's wings and gave them a slight motion blur, just like the artwork's existing wings.

This wallpaper was tricky. I had to crop it :( I hated doing that, but given the circumstances of this wallpaper I was forced to. If I simply extended the left & right sides like I did in the above wallpaper, I'd have to redraw nearly half of the dragon. That would take forever. So I filled the wallpaper to the left & right widescreen edges and cropped the top & bottom. The Shining Force logo was cut so I had to cover it up. To avoid redrawing the dragon's lower half I duplicated pieces of the rock from the right side of the artwork. I drew some smoke to help differentiate that area. Even after doing all that I still had to redraw some pieces of the dragon.
