I have a big blank wall in my room and I want to fill it up. I think the coolest thing to do would be to rasterbate an image, but the options are endless. No restrictions given.

I made a thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=1029687#post1029687) similar to this a while ago and it got shot down. I hope this one doesn't because I want to see how they turn out.
A rasterbation of the Beatles - Abby Road Album cover is on my wall.

What do business offices hang on their walls? I want to motivate myself to work since I always end up sleeping on top of my homework.

I got some motivational posteres if you want them.
I got them from a thread at somethingawful.com
They're a little distasteful so they're linked.

oh god! those are funny, especially the kool-aid one because it's subtle.

I think talking about rasterbating is a little distasteful as well :eek:

what do you like? I've done it with some pics of friends and even my dog :D

I think what you're asking is what 'icon' is appropriate.....

What's your preference?

I'm leaning towards something simple like simple scenery or abstract like a picture of a microphone stand next to a stool. I'm not leaning towards faces since I would find it pretty weird to have a big pair of eyes right behind me.

How fitting it would be if I did a big brother pic or something since the wall is is opposite my computer screen.

OK, I finally got around to putting together my rasterbation... dual 12-cylinder Maybach MD655s, Voith hydraulic transmission, stressed skin bodywork... 1350hp@1500rpm. 1961 was a good year :cool:

Oh, the irony. I used the 'cool' smiley...

I like how you mounted it. I just put mine up the lazy way and taped it to my walls.

my last rasterbation subject was an enlargement of the movie poster for "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman."

I needed something that would stisfy my kitsch hunger, and would simultaneously be sexy enough for my roomates to not mind it being up.

That looks cool brap. I used to be into N scale model railroads, brings back memories...

Would anyone be so kind as to post a link to a how-to for this? I'd like to try it myself.

It's pretty easy. Go to http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/ and follow the instructions they give you. Then print out the pdf file and tape them to your wall.

Yeah, I have loads of OO scale stuff at my father's house. I rejected it during my, uh, adolescent years, but realised I really am still interested in this stuff :eek:

Course, nothing beats the real thing (http://www.preserved-diesels.co.uk/). I had a ride in the cab of the subject of my rasterbation when I was 10 or 11. 'Twas ********* hard core.

I rasterbated a Clive Barker image and put it on my wall...I love it!

You can see it in their gallery here:

Wow, I'd like to thank you for introducing me to this site.

I had a day with nothing to do, so I made one, now replacing the giant, wide (wider than the rasterbated image) grand canyon poster I had up...

Please excuse the quality, but it's the best camera device I have available at the time.

I like how the old city scene clashes with the futuristic looking lamp.
