    Hey guys,
    So here's the story, when i was little i used to love messing around in paint (not real paint, i mean on the computer

    ) and so when christmas time would come around i'd make a christmas themes wallpaper, these would usually have a badly drawn tree with big square presents, barely circular christmas balls, and an oddly shaped star above the tree...

    so anyway, this year my mum was searching the computer for those .bmp from back in the good old days and was dissapointed, when i told her i deleted them.

    SO, i decided to design a completely new desktop wallpaper in the spirit of christmas...


    exept i made this one in photoshop!

    PRESENTING... A VERY VECTOR CHRISTMAS!

    hmm, the bottom of the tree is very blurred, i shall fix it some other time.
    but it's vector art

    lol

    there's a difference between a vector image and vector based art...
    although if the image isn't vector, it kinda defeats the purpose.

    He said it was done in photoshop. It looks pretty good, although extremely fake. It is probably supposed to be that way. 7/10 for this work. It's nice, but there is no fading, just solid colors.

    the uh, drop shadows look way out of place and it'd look a lot better without them imo
