One suggestion I have is to make it more proportional to a real-life screen size. The image you created is basically square. Although you can certainly use a square image as a background, if you create an image that is 1024 x 768 for example you can make better use of the space- spread it out a bit.

Nice! May I interest you in trying out Paint Shop Pro 8 (Jasc Software: http://www.jasc.com/)? It will even let you smooth out those edges and is a great program. I love it. :) They have a free trial for download.

I love your wallpaper. :) I think too, if you make a black 1024 x 768 image and then cut/paste this into the center of it, you could make it "normal" wallpaper size. Then those with different screen sizes could still use the "stretch" (Win98SE has it) to make it fit whatever screen they have.

Nicely drawn images though. :)

I was thinking, would you mind if I worked on this image in Paint Shop Pro 8 for a bit and then put it up on my site for download? I would of course give you credit on the image itself as well (via watermark looking stamp).

No problem. :) I'll PM you and let you take a look at it. Then you could put it up on your site if you like as well, of course. :) We'll work something out.

I haven't started on it though. Was painting my apartment today and found they gave me the wrong color. So I ordered some correct paint from maintenance. Then I watched "The Fast and The Furious" which a neighbor lent me. So I didn't have much computer time today. LOL!

But I'll get to it. I do love playing with Paint Shop Pro 8, too. In fact, all the graphics on my site was done by me in PSP 8 and also a program called "Terragen" which creates photorealistic landscapes.

Interesting plans there, fuzzydice. How much do you want to spend on this car? What's it worth? Being an Autoelectrician I can tell you that you have many obstacles ahead, but none that can't be resolved with a no-limit credit card. :-) Maybe you should settle for the in-car computer just playing MP3's. Hand print reader? Auto-drive system? Not with YOUR budget.
