Here we have The Count, with his arms around Albert. Curious image, no? ;)
Cleaned up the scan a bit (was grainy), moved the tree around so it provided more of a framework. There's a lot more to the image (Albert's arm dangling down), but I wanted to focus more directly on that rather seductive embrace and have that take up as much room as possible.
I toyed with having this on a more paper-like background, but opted for what you see here, instead. I think it looks like the image is bleeding onto the background, like someone spilled a little water onto the ink. It does say "Count of Monte Cristo" beneath the title, you just can't see it in the thumbnail.

Aaaaaaaas always, suggestions for improvement, comments, etc. welcome. :D

Edit: Made the secondary title darker/bluer, as per your suggestion, EternalParadox. :D (Still can't see that in the thumbnail, but it's there!)

    Wow, this is a really beautiful and elegant wallpaper. I really like it. It's simple yet has alot of "flow" to it. ^^; It's great.

    I like your use of the color and the patterns. The two sections of purple lining a light blue middle is very nice.

    Though one suggestion, the title of "count of monte cristo" under Gankutsuou is a bit too light, I think if you could darken those letters to be more like the rest of the purple it would be much better, as well as being easier to read on the eyes.

    great job, and thanks for sharing. =)

    Great wallpaper. I like the simple ones. Or the ones that really look simple. Count and alber look great together. And the color it looks like made with ink. Very nice.

    I really like this wallpaper! Usually when thinking of Gankutsuou walls you expect sumption over-the-top use of color. I really enjoy that this one is different. The way you made it look like a wood carving, and made with real ink is really neat. Great job.

    Wood-craven-like lineart is love. It's nice to see an artsy, monochrome wall for Gankutsuou. Mesmerising patterns, mysterious silhouette-like expressions.. Yum.
