Thiel & Boerne

Not really a Christmas wallpaper, but it's got the spirit of Christmas:
friensdhip,
coziness,
love and togetherness
and what have you not.

Maybe the desktop will inspire others to write some nice fics for the 'Adventkalender'.

For all my new German friends who love this pairing as much as I do. Hopefully your creative minds will continue to produce fannish stuff all through 2012!

Unfortunately I can't use this as desktop-background at work ... it would cause to many questions .. ;) This definitly has some of the "what have you not".

Thanks for sharing :)

Wow! I already told you, how great I think this pic is. It is now my desktop. :-) I think Prahl/Thiel looks stunning in this one. Thanks so much.

My pleasure.

I always have problems with the size of Prahl's head in comparison to Liefer's. He does have rather a large head, but I think the proportions turned out quite well in this manip.

Quite well?? Are you kidding me? It is perfect! Would you mind PMing me the links to the originals? I would just like to know at which occasions they were looking so hot. ;-)

Cute, but cute doesn't match the right feeling. I like Boernes hair style and look. Very soft and maybe a bit prankish (I hope that's the right word for it)
Tnax for posting!

Thanks!

I came across the pic of Liefers when I googled his name: it was taken somewhere on the street by a newspaper-photographer, so it is not actually a screenshot or photoshoot from Tatort. Glad he had the beard though, so he could really pass for Boerne in the manip. It's hard to photoshop beards (I'm not using the world's most sophiscticated phothoshop software: it's more than 10 years old)

Thanks!

Like I wrote in the intro: please feel free let yourself be inspired: maybe we can expect your idea in writing?

Having just read this, the quality of your manips impresses me even more. Thumbs up! :)

Thanks. It's just that I'm so used to my old photoshop and am too lazy to learn the new stuff, that I hang on to my old one. It's amazing what you can do with those: I wish I could learn it overnight :(

I'm in love with their expressions. And their faces go so well with their postures, it all looks very natural and relaxed as if they're really close with each other. I could easily image them taking pictures on their first christmas eve together … maybe they just had a nice, snugly evening on the couch (so that would explain Boerne's hair and why his glasses are gone :D). And their hands … aww, I could stare at them for hours … <3

(Do you have, by chance, some sort of tutorial or "how-to" posted somewhere with any of your manips? I love doing manips myself (they're not nearly half as good as yours though) so I'd be very interested in the process behind them … :D)

Beautiful work, thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the praise! I would love to help you with your manips, but it really depends on the software you have. I use a very old version of Adobe photoshop because the new version are so different from mine and although the result is often a lot better, I somehow never get around to learning the ropes.

I did make a little turorial once: maybe it helps you a bit, but you can also join a photoshop Lj: there are lots to choose from; I have a few of them in my com-list.

Here's the link to my own little tutorial: http://jacteest.livejournal.com/80366.html

If you have any questions, just drop me a line. If I can find the time, I will do a step-by-step tutorial on how I made this T/B manip.

Wow, this wallpaper is so incredibly cute! It's now on my desktop :)

Just like many others here, I love their posture (the hands are fantastic!), Boerne's 'relaxed' hair-do and Thiel's bright blue eyes *meltingaway*

Awesome work!
