Custer Thrashes Out Another Desktop
11:19 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

After a last-minute switch, pixel wizard Brad Custer has once again graced IMG with a new gaming-related desktop image. Titled "Skate or Die," this creation celebrates the recent release of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 by Aspyr Media. Here's more from Brad on the subject:

Well, today was a day of miscommuncation.

To make a long story short - I created a desktop that won't be used until later which meant I needed a new selection.
I decided to do one in honor of the release of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2.
Again I've teamed up with Aspyr Media to have 5 exclusive desktops included with the game.
I'm very excited about this opportunity and I have a feeling that we might be doing this again soon. ;D

I played THPS2 for the first time on an Xbox at E3 and it made me anxious for this release.
I'm glad I didn't have to wait too long. ;D

I actually completed my work on this project a few months ago so it was fun to come back and work with this title again.

I entitled this one, "Skate or Die" to pay homage to the old Electronic Arts games from the 80's.
Once you buy the game you'll see that I have a certain style for these desktops and worked mostly in blue and orange.
This one was no different.
Grab it here because this desktop isn't available with the game!

Visit Custer's Desktops to grab this image in sizes from 640x480 to 1600x1200. If you haven't read our review of the title yet, be sure to check that out as well -- so far the user reviews have awarded the game an astounding score of 9.75 (out of 10).
