Translated literally, it means "darkness". In upper Finland, kaamos is a natural phenomenon where the sun doesn't reach above the horizon and there's total darkness for a long time

a classical concert in the darkness. when I was a kid I was obssesed over violins, I was never abled to get my hands on one due to my economical annd political position at the time but my love for the instrument and its celestial sound never faded. I vectored this wall based on the same idea as my previous wall GuitarraPapalote, but this time around I added an extra color to add to the stunningly beautiful contrast between black ,red and white. Many thanks to the folks of Angryblue for the pretty brushes.
This was my first project on my brand new iMac G5, and man...its such a smooth ride I love it. ^_^

merry christmas.

    ah yes...I play the voilin..since the 5th grade! I fell in love with it's sound

    Great composition...love the color combination too...makes such a strong statement
    The details and the use of brushes go together very well (especially love the extra string flying off the left side)...if anything I'd say I would have appreciated more detail (the strings on the neck of the violin or more distinct strings on the bow) but that would just be icing :)
    Maybe a slightly fancier/curly font would have matched the violin more though
    A good simple wall

    NEAT! i hate voilen but this is great!

  6. alterlier Dec 26, 2005

    what a great wallpaper, a great picture, the simplicity suits the image to perfection.
    great job I must add this to my favorites.

    The title reminds me of a song by the band Apocalyptica... The gothic influence reminds me a lot of their work and of the baroque music that I enjoy. Interesting work. :)

  8. sacredsky Dec 26, 2005

    OMG! So cool! I really like this! I play the violin, and even though I'm not that great at it, I still really like the music.

    It's sad you never had a chance to play...:(

  9. Rhonda21 Dec 26, 2005

    I just love how those colors fit together so beautifully! I also love the whole idea which is nice to see again! Great Work!
    OH and Merry Christmas!

    This really give a more interesting contrast than a guitar. A violin has a more elegant feel and does not usual associate with blood or gore. I like the shape of the violin and the colors that helps your theme. But I think the guitar turned out a lil better. But they are equally nice. ^_^

    beautiful work- beautiful. my youngest sister used to play the violin and as an avid fan of classical chamber music i loved those times.

    i am really impressed by your creativity.
    :turns up Pachebel's Canon in D major:

    + favs

    Oh this is wonderful! I play the viola, so I gravitate towards all things strings ;).

    And I had no idea what Kaamos meant! I love Apocalyptica, and they have a song by that title. Thanks!

    Well my love is the piano mostly, its more soothing and less stress ful to weild in the hands but yeah i like it since its too precise in the lines and precision of the calibur of work. Nicely done as always mate! :P

  14. SCOLOPENDRUM Dec 27, 2005

    Very artistic and musical illusion of my mind.

  15. Ikorus Dec 28, 2005

    Wow. Practically everything in this wall is something I like. I've loved the violin since forever and I got fortunate enough to buy one and learn to play it, and my favorite colors are black, red, and white (and silver ^_^)! I think it would have been better though, if the strings that are on the red background should be white, as opposed to the red strings on the white body. Sort of how you did the text? Still, it's quite worthy of a fave. :) This is gonna go on my desktop for a while...

  16. markjo Dec 28, 2005

    A very good composition and strong choice of colours. Love the string idea (a broken concerto?).

  17. Yina Dec 29, 2005

  18. Phill Jan 01, 2006
