Custer's Latest - Max Payne Desktop
8:15 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Brad Custer, after taking a long-deserved rest on Memorial Day along with the rest of the IMG staff, has created yet another excellent Desktop picture for Mac users to enjoy. This week, he's taken the highly anticipated action title Max Payne, worked his magic on some scans, and has put out a very impressive product that shows Max Payne in all his double gun wielding glory, complete with the caption "New York. Fugitive Undercover Cop. Nothing to Lose."

Here's a clip from the man himself:

I was very fortunate to be given a great press kit for God Games that included some nice art for Max Payne. After some quick scanning and a visit to the official Max Payne web site, I put together this week's desktop offering titled, "Nothing To Lose". A lot of behind-the-scenes work went into creating this desktop from recreating the brick wall to scanning in a few key elements. I couldn't obtain my first choice of Max Payne pictures, but in the end I think this one worked much better. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
The desktop pic itself is offered in the usual sizes, ranging from 640x480 to 1600x1200.

In related news, Custer has put up a teaser trailer at his personal site, Custer's Corner. The trailer is a bit large, weighing in at 1.8MB, but is definitely worth a look if you can spare the bandwidth. Links to both the new desktop and Custer's Corner have been provided below for convenience - be sure to check them out!
