I don't know what this style is called, but I like to call it the "y2k aesthetic". Basically, post wallpapers that look like they belong on a Windows XP machine, or an iMac G4. The more kitsch, the better! And the wallpapers don't have to actually be from the 2000s, they just have to look like it, in other words, wallpapers of modern anime are allowed, as long as they look the part.
I'm getting fuckin old...
I found this on my hard drive. I completely forgot about the broken screen wallpaper trend.
Excellent thread. Wish I had something to contribute.
>>2210138This is how I feel too. It makes me sad that this aesthetic died out.
none of these look like the sorta shit you have on a xp machine,just weebs posting loli shitt.someone who used xp since it was released
>>2210860post something then faggot
>>2210860>just weebs posting loli shitDo you have any idea where you are
>>2210860>t.someone who used xp since it was releasedwow anon-kun you are so cool, please tell me more about yourself
>>2210860You're on Anime/Wallpapers, pal.
>>2210860On XP machines, we didn't use wallpapers like this, true. We would hoard wallpapers like these and never use them.
This thread gave me some of the most intense nostalgia I have ever felt in my life. I swear I had some of these pictures as my desktop when I was a teen.
>>2209409I like Kallen!
>>2211389i still do this rofl
Here are some I've been using
>>2209409>>2209416>>2209429>>2210044>>2210828>>2210829>>2210831>>2210832>>2210833>>2212304>>2214435>>2214436>>2214437>>2214441>>2214443>>2214445>>2215692these ones are the closest things to y2ky2k is an actual style based on late 90s early 2000s futurism not just shit from the 2000s
>>2216428shut the hell up.
>>2210860The anime art book style wallpapers were plenty popular in XP days, I would hoard them obsessively when I was like 11.
>>2210860While I don't like some of the gross ass loli shit, because I have to defend them for this. It is shit one would have if they were using an XP-7 machine back then, if you are into anime.and guess what this board is called, anime/wallpaper.... So yea, alot of the people here would have likely used the photos here as wallpapers back then.
>>2210860It's almost like lolicon wasn't considered pedophilia until gamergate happened.
Need more in 4k!
>>2217698You probably have to make some with that aesthetic yourself or upscale them. Or look for new ones with that aethetic.Primary resolution back then was 1024x786 or the next higher one.
Need more Air wallpapers!
>>2217873Found a few from 2006.
>>2209409There's a lot of this on minitokyo. I used to create graphics like this. Still have my account on there lol. S/o for this thread and every1 innit.
>>2221004Not Op, but definitely delivered.
>>2209409Looking for the wallpaper of Ruri Hoshino in this pic, anyone willing to help me out? I've tried everywhere i know, to no avail...
>>2210418There was one like this with Ichigo too, thanks for reminding me.
does anyone have any cinnamoroll wallpapers that cuz i only get really shit ones from like early 2000s on when i google shit for him
>>2209428That one is a classic
>>2221510I'm sorry anon, I've looked on boorus looking for that Ruri Hoshino wallpaper and haven't found yours.But I'll post some that I liked while searching.
>>2209409thanks anon, I always wanted to know what these types of images were called
>>2223306Thanks for the help! I'm still looking for it myself, trying over and over again on many different places and still have had no luck, I'm starting to think it's lost forever (the pic itself is from at least 2000) and it was never backed up on any wallpaper related website. If I do find it one day I'll be sure to post it on this thread if it's still alive. I'm gonna use >>2223308 for now, it looks great on my monitor.
/jp/ had a thread for these exact style of images (kinda.)https://archive.wakarimasen.moe/jp/thread/36157313Pic related.
>>2223899Neat, thanks dude.
Currently up-scaling and cropping some older (2008 and below) artwork.
>>2224536This one was already high-res, just needed a basic noise reduction.
>>2224539And that's all for now.
>>2225198Forgot to crop it.
>>2223329Hey I can give you a bit of a lead. It's art used in the Ruri Hoshino at Vocal CD.
>>2225330>bit of a leadOh wow, thanks to that, I was actually able to find it, though it's scans of the CD album. I'm going to crop all of the images in the scans and dump them here, some of them make nice wallpapers. Picrel is an example of the scans included.
>http://www.2cycd.com/thread-16757-1-1.htmlIf you any of you are interested in downloading it, it's sang by the seiyuu of Ruri herself.
love this thread
Dumping all waha
>>2225626This is my supply of waha

>>2221510Comfy as fuck
>>2227646And a mirrored one (better suited to OS-X since icons are left aligned on the desktop.)
TAKE ME BACK
>>2225373I didn't want to really denoise this or anything for fear it would detract from the CRT 90s look, but I really liked the colors in the pic you found it from. Here's a mild recolor to try and capture that look.
These wallpapers make me want to get a second monitor with a 4:3 screen
>>2209752Me too, how old are you man? Im 28. FUCK wish I could go back to these times to play wow, ps2 and watch subed anime on youtube.
>>2224533>>2224534>>2224536Everyone seems to take lucky star as the symbol for y2k aestheticWas lucky star wallpapers really that popular back then?
>>2229170idk. When I think Y2k I think anime paired with trendwhore style and vivid colours. Sometimes text. That's what I had on my desktop back then. I didn't have internet for years when after moving in 2004, so can't really speak for everything that came after that.
>>2229021not that guy but yeah man i long for the days of dicking around playing shitty flash games on my dads windows xp pc all day. My neighbor across the street's dad would let us use his computer to watch madness combat and listen to slayer and we thought that was the coolest shit ever
>>2229170>was popular in the 2000's>references things popular with otaku around that timeAlso it had a lot of fanart made when the y2k artstyle was trending.
>>2229047I thought it was printer noise but I wasn't sure. I'll try and clean it up by hand - will take a little while but most of my skillset is art restoration so I think it'll come out alright.
Daily reminder SeaMonkey exists and is basically y2k browser aesthetic.
