Android-D2 Wallpaper 1 For Portable Devices

Android-D2 (Android & R2-D2 mashup) Wallpaper 1 Version 1.2 in High Definition - Created in Blender 2.68a

Note: If you click on the above image you will see it with less compression.

Version 1.2 Update: It also includes now in the portable devices version IPhone 5 standard resolution (640 x 1136) and IPhone And IPad parallax resolutions to be used with the parallax effect. So it has resolutions for parallax and non parallax use. Yes I know that it is an Android wallpaper but some people do not care about that and use it in IPhones And IPads anyway. :) (Smile)

Version 1.1 Update: The only change in this version is for the portable version of the wallpaper in which I have corrected the errors in formatting the wallpaper correctly for Android devices. I was formatting it in some resolutions according to the absolute screen size in pixels but this is incorrect. It is just that I still did not know how to format the wallpapers for Android correctly but now I read more and fixed it. Android wallpapers are really supposed to be twice in horizontal resolution (when held vertically) of the absolute resolution of the screen and have the same vertical resolution. So if an Android device screen is for example 480 pixels horizontally x 854 pixels vertically the wallpaper resolution should really be 960 pixels horizontally (double) x 854 pixels vertically (same) so that it looks right when the home screen scrolls to the sides. Now I made the portable version available in far more resolution formats and they are formatted correctly. To chose the correct wallpaper for your Android device look at the second set of numbers from left to right in their names, those that say for example (For480x854ScreenAndroid), those should match the real physical screen resolution of your Android device.

Well as you can see, it is really a very simple idea, I saw that the Android robot and R2-D2 had some similarities and I made a hybrid of them and lo and behold here is Android-D2. It is really simple, again as usual I did it in a relatively short period of time cause I do these things in my spare time and I had to simplify and it still took a couple of days to do plus the render times which was about 38 hours in a Intel i7 2.66 Ghz 920 with 1,333 Ghz DDR-3 ram. It is somewhat longer than Android and shorter than R2-D2 (sort of in-between) and I gave the R2-D2 like parts rounder edges and simpler lines to make them look more Android bot like and that was the result. If you want it you can get the 3D Blender model that I used for the robot by downloading the icons & 3D model .zip file set that I also did which is a separate submission in my Deviantart gallery.

Like my other wallpapers it is in many resolutions from 1024 x 768 all the way to 2560 x 1600 pixels and as I do lately there will be a separate file for portable devices like IPhones, IPads and Android phones and tablets. I did it in 4:6 IPhone format with 320 x 480 and 640 x 960 resolution and also some versions for IPads in 1024 x 1024 and 2048 x 2048 (the special IPads format for wallpaper rotation). I also did it in a few versions for Android phones and tablet computers like 960 x 540 and 1024 x 600 resolutions. So there will be two versions of the zip file, one for desktops & laptops and another for portable devices like smartphones and tab computers to prevent the wallpaper file from becoming larger than it already is. I used very little compression to preserve a high quality. With more time of course I could have done something better but I like how it turned out anyway.
