What is a powerlevel wallpaper?
Powerlevel is, above all, SUBTLE. It attempts to obscure its source material to anyone unfamiliar with it. It looks good to the uninitiated, while providing a neat nod for anyone who knows the reference.
Good examples of powerlevel include:
Insignias and logos
Distinctive equipment or ornamentation (weapons, masks, ribbons, hats, necklaces, glasses, anything that can identify the character to someone who knows the source)
Mascots and some non-humanoid side characters. Be careful on this one, it can be borderline.
What powerlevel usually does NOT include:
The anime's name or a character's name. There is some wiggle room here if all other criteria are met.
Faces, or most of a character's body.
Minimalism, if it depicts a character.
Landscapes and cityscapes. There is almost no wiggle room, unless you are 100% sure it's powerlevel despite being a landscape. We know, Monogatari and 5cm/s backgrounds look pretty good, but this isn't the thread for them.
Screencaps, unless the screencaps have been doctored to be high quality.
Vector Thread - Requests & Sharing

READ THE OP BEFORE POSTING!
>Before requesting, here are some tips:
– Request an image ONCE per thread. Do not bump or second - once is enough.
– Check the lists below to see if your request has already been previously fulfilled.
– All requests are welcome, within reason, but remember:
– The poorer the quality of an image (in resolution and drawing ability), the less likely it will be picked up. The more detail seen and higher the resolution, the better.
– Full-body images preferred. Images cut off on 3 or more sides are very unlikely to be picked up due to their limited usage; keep this in mind when finding an image to request. (Hair or skirt edges that are barely cut off don't usually count)
– Requests for removing the background from an image (called a RENDER) and resizing requests should go to the IMT threads.
– Refrain from using renders for requests. Try to find the original non-rendered image; it is easier for vectorists to work with.
– Note: Overly complicated images are unlikely to be picked up due to their nature. IF your request is taken, please have patience.
