At the moment I have a cycle of three wallpapers on my desktop computer at home, and am immensely happy with them. In the privacy of my own computer room, I can afford to picker wallpapers which are a little brighter and more eyecatching. (If I catch you looking at my computer monitor at school, I will destroy you. In my mind.) Click resolutions for sources again.
I came across this breathtaking watercolour while researching Miyazaki as part of my art exam. The films' plots are usually too random for me to really fall in love with Studio Ghibli, but I enjoy them all the same. My favourite is Princess Mononoke, though I quite like Howl's Moving Castle, and My Neighbour Totoro (which I watched the other week with my Wifey) is uneventful but adorable. Subbed, never dubbed - yeah, America is great at everything and rule the world and all that crap, but their voice actors need their mouths duct-taped shut. Permanently. Forever. And ever. And ever.
Skyward Sword's art is spectacular - I like the style much better than Twilight Princess' and Ocarina of Time's. The sweeping vastness of the land above the clouds, emphasised by the fisheye distortion, makes for an epic painting. I have a poster of part of this scene on my bedroom wall. It was from the only Nintendo magazine I've ever bought. The magazine reads like a really long advert, but the two Zelda posters - the reason why I bought the thing in the first place - was worth the money.
This last one is obviously not watercolour like the others, but I love it to death. I can't be the only one who thinks this is a great wallpaper, because it's the background image of the official Xenoblade Chronicles character page on the Nintendo website. Xenoblade's art style is amazing too - it makes everyone beautiful, and because this game was translated by Brits - YAY - they all sound beautiful too. No crappy American whining and screaming that makes rivers of blood flow from my ears! The actual game's graphics are more than a little last decade, but it's a sacrifice worth making for the immense, explorer-friendly world the game is set in.
