Need a new badass wallpaper? Here's a pretty good solution.

You need Photoshop CS6.
Pick a game of your choice, take take a good screenshot of whatever you want.

For my example I will use this one: http://i.imgur.com/v4YN6.jpg

Open the image on photoshop and follow the steps:

- Resize your image to your desktop resolution if needed by going on image -> image size
- Go to image -> adjustments -> vibrance
- Put vibrance up to 100
- Go to filter -> oil paint
- Put shine on 0
- Press OK and save

Pretty simple, heh? Here's the final result: http://i.imgur.com/9y86H.jpg

Hope you guys enjoy it :)

You can do that in Gimp, too and it's free... you just have to download the vibrance plugin...

Yes, but I'm pretty sure the oil effect there doesn't work the same as oil paint on CS6

Now submit this as your major artwork for art examination.
There is no way the teacher will know how you got it...
