I remember reading books like Tarzan & a few comics like Conan as a boy in the 1970s - these were illustrated with great Vallejo & Franzetta art. I managed to find (and converted to B&W) several of these, some of them might work as screensavers for the K2 (& hopefully the KDX soon?). I've got tons more of these, (a bunch of them with nude art which I'm not posting here). I think these would work as very interesting screensavers as the art is absolutely decadent. Please let me know if you think they're obscene or otherwise inappropriate:

Welcome, Pleeho,

Some of these might be a little over the edge for some viewers. I don't have a problem with it, but others may. Don't be offended if a few get removed for being too provocative. You did a really nice job on them.

I thumb-nailed these so they're not quite as in-your-face for anyone who'd rather bypass them. Each image is clickable to display the full-size image.

Beautiful, Thank you for sharing. I always liked the fantasy art. It's like something out of a dream, granted it would have been a man's sexist dream ;) , but such wonderful imagery!

Great idea Harvey. I liked them but thought they might be a bit much for those with small kids around the computer.

Thanks for the thumbnailing - is there a way I could thumbnail my images myself or is it an admin tool?  I'm asking because I've completed getting these screensavers onto my K2 - it turns out all the images are wrong sizes, so I photoshopped them to fit perfectly on the K2 screen (I assume K1 also). They look unbelievable fantastic on my Kindle2 and I wanted to share my correctly-sized images here for other folks to use but didn't want to post huge blown up shots again.

This is how Harvey did your thmbnails. If you replace the two "<" symbols with "[" brackets, it will show the thumbnail and allow you to click to the full size picture.

If my husband had a Kindle:  The Three Stooges in some sort of Sci-fi or "hethem"...fantasy scenario.

Thanks Pleeho,

I love Frank Frazetta and you have a couple of screen savers I can use for my K2 by him.  There is one specifically from an animated movie I have called Fire & Ice and I love that movie.  Thanks so much for the great artwork/screensavers.  I will be popping a few of these on my K2 immediately! :eek:

Here's the rightly-sized for K2 screensavers I promised. Took me a while to figure out how to thumbnail them & there's still one I can't seem to fix. The screensavers though work beautifully on my K2. I'm sorry I wasted your time posting non-formatted pics before; I did not realize you had to size to the K2 screen first - HARVEY: I can really appreciate the time you spent fixing mine. I realize also they're not to everybody's taste, but to most guys who grew up reading sci-fi/fantasy, these are modern masterpieces. I also have more screensavers I made from Hieronymous Bosch & MEscher images. I would love to see screensavers made of the great European/American painters' works (van Dyke, Cannalleto, Vasquez, Winslow Homer & Thomas Aikens etc.) - but I'm pooped from converting these.

I downloaded the files - they are so cool! Thanks a lot. I am working on a nature screen saver but don't have the photos done yet. When I do I will post them.

Really great screen savers.  I read lots of sci fi and fantasy and love these - only wish there were more. 

Thanks.

Hello,

  I just got my kindle about an hour ago, and I was wondering how you put the pictures on your Kindle and use them as screen saver images?  Do I just save them as a jpg and mail them to my kindle mail address?

OK, so I'm not a guy, and I didn't grow up reading this stuff either, but I still think some of those pics are cool. 

But my favorite one is the last one (the girl and the leopard), and it doesn't look like the right format for a K screensaver.  Is there another version of that one, perhaps?

I have rotated that image so it fits the screen. If you PM me I can send it to you. For some reason photo bucket resizes it so I can't post it.

I think I figured it out. Here is the 600 x 800 image:
