The "Mother-Of-All Backdrop Packs" Thread - digitalhigh - 2009-01-08 16:14
Due to the increasing popularity of fanart and the number of questions I get regarding where to get fanart sets, I decided to make one thread with the links to everything that was out there to save people time and hunting.
If I've missed something, or you'd like me to add a pack you've made, let me know, and I'll add it to the list.
In preperation for the long-awaited Aeon Stark, I'm also working on a NEW pack of some really really great backdrops, which should be done in a couple of days. The phrase "eye-popping" comes to mind when I go through them. I've currently got over 250 images, and I'm only a quarter of the way through the alphabet.
So, in addition to everything here, expect one JUMBO download containing everything shown below, as well as the new pack I'm working on.
DH Fanart Packs
Some of these may appear to be duplicates of pre-existing images...this is a coincidence, as everything here was made from scratch. The cropping in some images may also be different from existing ones...this is because everything is Aeonized.
1080x Fanart (254 images)
720x Fanart (195 images)
Aeon Fanart Pack
These are the backdrops that were pulled from the Aeon site. The first link is the torrent, the rest are the individual sets from RS.
Torrent of All Aeon RAR's
Livin's Fanart Pack
Contains images for the following:
Pack 1 contains 239 images, Pack 2 contains 30. All are 1080p resolution. Thumbnails can be found in the third URL. These are also featured in the MedioOS link at the bottom.
CRNI's Games Vol 1
CRNI's Games Vol 2
Music Fanart Packs
This pack is a comprehensive music pack...contains everything every listed here.
Fekker's Big Music Fanart
DJOktave's Electronic Music Pack
MOAI's Music 1
MOAI's Music 2
Smokeyfingaz Music Pack
Cat0's Metal 1
cat0's Metal 2
Cr8oR's Music Pack (21 images)
Sartori's Music Mini Pack
Ewequeone's Movies 1 (19 images)
Ewequeone's Movies 2 (12 images)
Below are some older packs of TV shows. Most contain only a few (20 or less) pictures.
Sartori's TV Pack
Smokeyfingaz TV 1
Smokeyfingaz TV 2
Sickboy719's Kids TV pack (720p)
The first is the pack created by Timdog that contains some 800 Weather images for real-time, condition based fanart. Mad props to Tim and Nukka for this act of brilliance. I mean, this is freaking slick. Also is an older upload by Notshorty.
Real-Time Weather art
Read here for info on how to use.
Waffa's Real Time Weather Add-on
Notshorty's Weather Pack
Links to a page with several packs created for use with MeedioOS. It looks like a lot of these are present in the Aeon pack.

Jeez, I thought I had a big collection. Most of them I collected over the last months, but I threw the stuff not to my taste, or non-1080p away again.

Thanks. I know that with Aeon Stark approaching, people seem to be scrambling to make their fanart all it can be. I figured this would help.

The fun part is, I plan on downloading everything up there, consolidating it, and then sorting it out. Something along the lines of having one pack with EVERYTHING, and then another that are like "The best of" for music, movies, TV, etc. B/C while there are a lot of images, I know that there are the ppl that want only the tastiest images for their home page.
So, in addition to the new movie pack I'll be releasing, there should also be a few nice superpacks for the various sections.

Have a large collection background can make a torrent file, if that's ok.
Did already upload Weather-fanArt.
- digitalhigh - 2009-01-08 18:35
Is that all weather, or are there other images?

Poor DJH, I've been harassing him for months about letting me get my hands on it.

- digitalhigh - 2009-01-08 19:17
I believe he is.
Yes, I'm definitely going to recompile everything and upload to a good site. Effing rapidshare...what joke.

Hey! Nice work putting this all together!
You have a Rapidshare link to my Music mini-pack that is actually a collection of TV Show backdrops that I had nothing to do with. You can still get my Music mini-pack from Megaupload.
For those that missed it the first time (nine months ago), it contains:
Amos Lee (x2), Amy Winehouse, Beastie Boys, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Bo Diddley, Fischerspooner, Frank Sinatra, Henry Rollins, Jimi Hendrix, Kraftwerk, KT Tunstall, Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood, Morrissey, Natasha Bedingfield, Norah Jones, Ray LaMontagne, Tokyo Jihen, Tom Waits, Tumari Nurmio & Alamaailman Vasarat

Edited the first post to Add the proper link and change the other one to TV shows.
Thanks for pointing that out.
