    A few Reds wallpaper

    Hey everyone, this is my first post here, so I'll start with a little introduction. I'm a 22 year old college student from Louisville, KY. Living in Louisville my whole life, and being a huge sports fan, it was only natural to start following the Reds since it was so easy for me to keep up with the Bats. I usually make it to a few Reds games a year, with this year being my most with 6 games attended thus far.

    Aside from being a huge sports fan, I'm also a graphic design student at a local college. I've been doing sports related designs since I was a junior in high school, and it really got me hooked. I've made a few Reds wallpaper recently, so I thought I'd share them.

    Aroldis Chapman

    Francisco Cordero

    Johnny Cueto

    Brandon Phillips

    Drew Stubbs

    Hope you enjoy. Feel free to comment on who you'd like to see next. I look forward to talking Reds, and hopefully watching us finish strong.

    Thanks guys, glad everyone seems to like them (or at least the people that don't are nice and haven't posted lol). Still looking for suggestions too. I'd love to do one of Concepcion, because he is my dads favorite time Red, but it is hard to find high quality images to use for the wallpapers. If you all know where to find any, I'd be all for it.

    Nice going. Just put the Cueto one on my ipad. My dog will be devastated that she no longer is my wallpaper! Thanks for sharing and welcome to RZ.

    I feel pretty privileged that I jumped your dog from the iPad wallpaper, appreciate that.

    I was trying to add the following link to my original post, but I can't seem to figure out how to edit the first post. But I just finished a new Joey Votto wallpaper, but don't want to start a separate thread just for 1 wallpaper. Check out the new wallpaper and let me know what you think. Also, if anyone can help me edit the first post, I'll add this link up top as well.

    I know nothing about graphic design, so forgive me in advance for not being able to properly explain this.

    Maybe you could use a low quality picture of Concepcion, fuzzy and all, and use that as some sort of contrast against the high quality backdrop. I don't know if this makes any sense, but sometimes the fuzzy images and videos of old time baseball make the players look more legendary. Something along the lines of 'use it as a strength.'

    Again, I probably articulated that completely wrong, but I hope I conveyed the point.

    Very nice work! I'm also using the Votto as my background. One with a few guys in it would be cool, like Votto, Phillips, Cueto and Chapman or something like that.
