Bleh, the thumbnail looks horrible XD . Gah, decided I wanted to go big an made the wall 1600x1200 size to further show all the little details and holy crap what a lot of work XD . In full view you can see all the details of the clouds and the islands. I worked on this while typing up my final essay paper for my anthropology 104 class. A bit of an off and on approach, but I managed to do both in 8 hours XD . Skillz or something XD .

Anyway, I saw this scan and knew that I had to expand upon it. I saw a challenge and knew I had to act upon it ... I like challenges. I like creating walls out of images others have deemed impossible to use :nya: . The initial background contained aspects of islands and a general breaking apart of the scenery, but I chose to expand upon the level of destruction. I tweaked the coloring of the scan a bit because the original brown coloring was lacking. Adjusted hues, contrasts, and whatnot ... and changed the lighting in certain areas a bit. Orange and white coloring turned out to work quite well and complimented the mood I was trying to achieve.

After much brushwork and image extendeding in the style of the original scan, out popped another large island and many clouds. Luckily, I was able to just recycle the small islands of the original scan :) . The island to the left that has broken-down constructed pillars and signs of the mass destruction inflicted upon it, as seen from the ground breaking away at the top. The clouds are meant to be crazy and stormlike, swirling about in an incomprehensionable fashion, almost in a manner that makes it appear as though they are supporting the wandering islands.

The theme is obviously the "end of the world" or more over it's aftermath. Gravity has been thrown off and pieces of the planet are breaking off and ascending into the atmosphere or remain stuck in a paradox state floating endlessly. The survivors have no choice, but to live off of the new form of thier planet and look out into the unknown future ahead of them. Birds fly by showing that they are not alone on their quest for survival, but that maybe there is some hope.

    This is beautiful... you did a fantastic job with the background. That had to be quite the job. OX The title also fits well with the image (Nine Inch Nails inspiration? ;) ) --- just an all around good wallpaper.

    Hmm... I've been staring at it for a while and I'm still not sure which way I'm supposed to look at it. where's up? But anyway, the cging is extremely impressive and I like the way you've integrated the scan in so well. A really nice wallpaper!

    I like the background effects very much, but for me, they don't fit with the character. Maybe it's the colour.

    Nice ^.^ The background is fantastic in its details... a very nice treat in the full view, and I just love the perspective! Rather unusual, but very beautiful ^.^ The small flying birds feel a little random to me although they're a nice touch a the same time... I'm just being nit-picky >_< And the orange/brown tones are fantastic. This works very nicely on my desktop and I couldn't resist nominating this one for Simple-ism's featured gallery ^.^ (Do check it out~ http://groups.minitokyo.net/simple-ism/)
