Its time that XDANDROID was properly branded. jk
I'd like to incorporate some creative works from themers and users on xda-developers. And so if you've always wanted to contribute to XDANDROID but didn't have the technical knowledge well nows your chance.
Anyone can participate and i'm hoping to see alot of creative work. I'll be setting up a pole from a weeks time and will let you the user's decide which artworks are best and will be incorporated in the next build.

Here are some details:
Submit your wallpapers | boot animations for XDANDROID here
Requirements
  • Wallpaper
  • Must contain the text "XDANDROID" (lowercase accepted)
  • 640x480 dimensions
  • 800x480 dimensions
  • png, jpeg format

  • Boot Animation
  • 256x512 dimensions LANDSCAPE
  • Contain text "XDANDROID" (lowercase accepted)
  • Unlimited frames. Though try not too much
  • png format
  • Landscape
  • Provide all frames. Do not merge into one file!

Top 5 wallpapers will be incorporated into next XDANDROID AOSP release and 1 boot animation will be replacing the current Nexus one boot Animation.



Please consider a donation to the XDANDROID project. We work on this on our spare time, even not on our spare times and every little bit gives us more inspiration and motivation to continue providing you our friends awww* great builds and support

Because of my lack of photoshop skills here's an idea someone might want to try:
The Android droid actualy looks somewhat like a rounded capital A...
If you draw an XD emoticon on it's face, you have an XD Android

The resolution is 512x256 and if possible provide each frame in png format. As the boot animation reads each image separately. The maximum amount of frames are 60 but you can do less than that.
Can't wait to see what you guys have to offer

You can provide a GIF image too, as i'll just rip it but it would be much easier if you provided the images separate instead of merged into a GIF

This is probably a stupid question but do the wallpaper sizes you asked for allow for the multiple-home-screen sliding of Android to work? They're the same size as the devices' screens, and I don't know if that means that it would only be big enough to cover one home screen without being stretched, or if Android does something differently with regard to setting wallpapers.

Also, the Hero boot animation is 217 frames long, does this matter?

And finally, I guess the animation should be able to loop (?).

Hmm, hard to do anything on only 60 frames. But here's a first draft at a boot animation. Any suggestions for improvements are most welcome.
I'll probably add another animation tomorrow when I have had time to get some better ideas.
At what fps does the animation play back by the way?
And would it be hard to replace the current bootanimation with a custom one? It would be nice to test the animation before submitting it to you.
