Introducing some ground rules, if your image doesn't comply, it could be removed...


Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.

A) It started out as an Albino monkey from somewhere deep in the Amazon forest. I got it from Nat'l Geographic a few years ago

B) It then became my first attempt at using Photoshop's "liquify" tool. I think it came out pretty well :D

C) No, I don't look at it every second. I have my desktops set to change every minute in random order :)

Personally, I think he & da wet puddytat could go places together and be seen as a nice couple :dive:
