The original painting is by Wei Wang (he's awesome!), and I added a ton of motion graphics to spice it up and give it some life. Basically, this is an animated video that you can use as your desktop wallpaper using a build in feature that comes with windows called "Dreamscene". Dreamscene is only enabled on Windows Ultimate packages, and needs to be enabled for any computer that's not running Windows Ultimate. I have provided simple instructions on how to obtain and use the video as your desktop wallpaper below.
- You will need to have Dreamscene enabled in order for this to work on your Windows computer. Something like this will work: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-7-dreamscene-activator-released
- You can download the original video on my website: http://www.paulwhipps.com/Illidan_Wei_HQ.zip
If your text disappears or looks dark after using DreamScene, you can fix it by following these steps:
The fix for the icon text is this. (Windows 7, dunno about others)
1.)Click on the Start Menu, then right click "Computer"
3.)On the left hand side select "Advanced System Settings"
4.)Under "Performance", click the settings button
5.)Scroll all the way to the bottom of the list that pops up
6.)Uncheck the box labeled "Use drop shadows for icons on your desktop"
7.)Apply and close, and your text works perfectly again
