Task: Spruce things up a bit

Maybe we could find similar, but better background image for those forums ?

Is it ok if it uses art from COH or no?

If so how's about this? It's something I threw together real quick using the original background as a guide.

I could even expand it to include more characters.

Two things:
Might be too dark ? And using CoX's artwork feels a bit risky ?
Unless that's free to use ? I have no idea how those fan-kit things work :)

I'm not sure whats allowed and whats not though there seems to be a great deal of leeway given to using art assets for fan sites.

I figured dark would be an issue consider how bright white everything else is on the forum he he.

Here's a version with a few more pics:

If nothing else it tiles nicely as a desktop background :)

I think human faces might be to distracting..
I'll edit that picture a bit and we can test it out.

Ok I'll look for less "person-esque" pics in the meantime!

Hey, no worries :)
Maybe something from golden age comics ?

What about one of these stretched to fill the page instead of tiled?
