Artist Comment

Snuck in a few hours with illustrator between school and work for this one. Been a while, so I was a little... um, rusty? Iimages used were from random pictures, I believe of doujinshi, that I had lain around. (still looking for the original artist) And then of course, the title comes from Anne Finch's poem A Supplication for the Joys of Heaven. I had a hard time deciding which poem to go with: the first line from the previously mentioned or just the title from Christopher Brennan's Fire in the Heavens. In the end, I was against putting the word "heaven" in the title. Anytime I see the word, I think overused. But no matter the title, interpret the image however you want.

Resolutions might be at Antique-Pop when the site gets back up and running.

    x.x You called rusty but even some people have troubles making a work like that with the outlines, they look great.

    Something that you can use on your desktop when you get tired of colorful walls and stuff like that, really nice concept and outcome, and as usual, original. Good to see you back rockie.

    Wow, that is such a nice wall. It's so tranquil, despite the lack of colours (or perhaps because of it). I love the concept, and the general calmness around the wall. Thanks for sharing ^_^

    Wow...I absolutely love it...the color scheme and composition are great...the feeling of motion and life really comes through
    I really like how you did the clouds and the red lines in the background
    I love the text wholeheartedly...color...placement...font
    On top of all that...I think horses are gorgeous and you do them real justice

    *_* Stunning work, rockiee... it's so nice to see a new wall from you <3 the flowing lines (especially the horse's mane) are simply beautiful, and the open space + atmosphere that you created is just wonderful! :D I guess some of the background lines could be a little smoother... *speculating about rustiness* but actually no, the way the lines look now creates a fantastic sense of energy... I love it :D

    I'm a bad procrastinator and not at all motherly hen-y, so I would actually ask you to sneak more hours in between work and school and wall xD Well, actually... sleep before that... but walling after that xD

    P.S. Someone else took dibs on the seven sins as well, so I think I'll just ask people to do the virtues... or maybe if they want to do a virtue-sin wall, to focus on the virtue :)

    So peaceful <3 It is nice to see you submit a wallpaper Rockiee. The vector is really clean and the art is just beautiful (you have to let me see the original piece sometime) The red lines in the back work, and make it look less bland colorwise. Oh well, keep up the great work..

  10. chubbykitty Apr 03, 2006

    Spendid work! I love the way you chose to do the horses mane and tail. Very nice, clean, and simplistic. Keep it up!

    without a doubt, a wallpaper that truly defines the pure finesse of wallpaper making, amazing calm, artistic, wonderful silent, as if over a graze of wonderful fields as we look at the horses with their wonderful manes billowing in the gentle breeze. A wonderful wonderful piece from every aspect.

    Congratulations, this is a great piece of art!
    I loved the theme and the grey shades are so sad but really transmit peace and quietude. I love horses and they made an interesting composition with the scenic background creating a original image with an atmosphere like the time had stopped. This is very beautiful, a true art piece. Congrats and thanks for sharing.

  16. bluSake Retired Moderator Apr 04, 2006

    The flow of the vector is truly beautiful, and the scene is so peaceful. I love it.

  17. Zefie Apr 04, 2006

    quite simple looking but so beautiful :D the pose of the white horse is so elegant and the way it's mane and tail floats makes it look so light and feel the breeze of the wind. gray and white tones are blending nicely and giving camlimg atmosphere though they are little sad colours. little red gives nicely brightening touch ^_^ good job and thank you for sharing !

  18. dans Apr 04, 2006

    this is really good. very stunning artwork. it's nice to see wall like this. <3

  19. rica-san Apr 04, 2006

    simply smasing, & suberb. Somehow I feel kind of sad when I look to this wall... The vectoring is awsome, & very smooth. Yes, I SHOULD BUY ILLUSTRASTOR! XP The horses look very brave & storng.... Very beautiful idea. The colors are lovely, but I think you should add more. Also, the title is great! Very talented & smashing idea. ^.^ Awsome job! I'll definately add this to my favs! Keep up the awsome work!

  20. kaisui1tatsu Apr 04, 2006

    Very nice! I love the emotions you have put into it and the black and white fits very nicely as well. I am definatly going to put it on my desktop!

  21. Nubes Apr 04, 2006

    i love horses! And their my reason to live... For them is that I'm studying, to save them and let them live the life their livin in ur wallpaper.

    very beautiful

  22. Elves Apr 05, 2006

    I like the simplicity of the piece. If there could be more red lines or some trees in the background, I think it would help to break up the grays a little more. I do like the sky's transition from white to light gray. The white horse's front hoof that melds into his leg looks a little odd, I'd suggest to seperate it with a line. The text, while fitting in well with the feel of the piece, is a little small, I think. It's sort of hard to read. You did a very nice job, and I like how you stuck with a very simple color pallet. It reminds me of a wood block print for some reason. Probably the simplicity of the lines. :) Nice work!

  23. FlowerDog Apr 05, 2006

    This wallpaper of of yours have a cool feeling to it. I love it how the majority color of your wallpaper is different tones of gray. You may consider this work to be created from your rustiness but I find it to be done adsolutely well. Keep it up rocknroll-isgo.

    Very cool vector XD. Fav from me XD
