Default Your computer Background

Just wondering what everyone has as there background. I loved when we used to have a thread like this.



This is mine: (scaled down, of course)
(Yes, it is french, and means: "You're a girl and I'm a Boy" (It's a quote from a song))

Here's mine. I thought of making it a gradient but the change of shade was too much to bare.

Hey tweety, I've been trying to figure out how to use two different backgrounds on my two monitors. Is that a 3rd party thing, or am I missing something obvious? Using Win 7 btw, if that matters.

I can't really post a screenshot of mine but I will say that I always use a render of the project I'm currently working on. Seeing it all the time (even when I'm not working on it) makes it easier the next time I do work on it because I'll already have in my mind how I'm going to do the next steps. Plus it helps me see things I want to add or change that I might not have seen otherwise.

I go with the same thing as Perfecto, both my Pc's have recent projects on them. My Smiler is grinning at me on one and my Spaceship entry from one of the SM challenges on the other. Not going to see my work on many other screens otherwise! lol

nice idea perfecto........
but in my case,I'll apply my recent finished work as a wallpaper,then my room mates,friends will comment on it,if really that scene/graphic design/cartoon needs more work,I'll do that and In next work I'll put those comments in my mind.........
