Malevolent Beauty: One that is full of pure beauty and yet evil still lurks within.

I hope by those words you can see why I named this piece Malevolent Beauty. If not, I suppose I will have to go through it with you. The flower is depicting pure beauty, while the black thorny waves are depicting the malevolent side. Bringing bolth beauty and evil to the flower. Now do you understand the concept? :)

Anywho, I spent all day on this. May seems short, but I mean I really worked hard ALL day..Another thing that is puzzling..The fact I am sick. I always work my best when Im sick.. (wtf)..I have no idea why..I think the reason I worked so hard on this one was because I had nothing else to do..Maybe..When Im sick, its ALL I can do..Therefore I just work in PS all day.. @__@ Just a theory though.

Also, even though I'm terribly sick, I feel great after its completion. I didn't think I'd get it done today, so that was a good feeling. Also, this one is a bit different from my original styles..This one has more detail than usual..Maybe another sickness affect? Not quite sure. But now its finished, I now have a nice new desktop :) Im sorry for those of you who would want a larger version..I dont have any larger version..My bad..

One last thing, thanks to the people who gave me their opinions and helped me improve on this while In the process of making it.. (nekosasu, etc)

Again, I never type this much; sickness affect..Yup..Im finished :D

The sharp, crisp patterns and clear, intuitive style set this icy blue wallpaper apart from the rest. The juxtaposition of curved and straight, organic and inorganic, pulls the disparate elements together into one cohesive whole.

    The setting is pleasing to the eyes, clean, and professional. The only thing I dislike is the low res. My new monitor is 1280x960, so it would look blurry if I tried to use this wall on it.

    Still, nicely done. +fav.

    lovely work! I really like it. I hope you are feeling better soon. I am gonna use this on my laptop.

    Awesome work ashley ^^
    I always had a weakness for such artworks, not too plain, not too techy - just perfect for me.
    Nice choice on the title, I didn't really get it at first but your description helped me :D
    The only minus of this wall, as I told you this afternoon, is the size ^^; I'll need to stretch it to use it as a wallpaper on my 1280 desktop ;_;
    Aww thanks for mentioning me, you really shouldn't have :3 I just gave you a small hint, that's all...
    Anyways, keep up the good work! And please get well soon! *casts cure on ashley* (though maybe you won't work your best anymore now... aaaaah what to do... >_<)
    mata ne~

    Wow, it's beautiful in it's own strange way ^_^ The design is so simple, yet the flower is really lovely. I'm not sure if the black thorns give off a sense of evil, but they do succeed in representing hidden evil. Overall, a really nice wall. Thanks for sharing ^_^

    whooo~~ i love those stripey lines xD and the flower vector reminds me of thia from hybrid genesis from some reason o.O

    huh... malevolent beauty... reminds me of my dad's orchids. they're pretty but my dad cares more for them than he does for me. wtf. anywho, it seems that people have their own ways for dealing with sickness. in my case, i play video games. you make wallpapers and vector art (very good ones at that). O_o anywho, the stripes give a very good contrast to the curvature of other things. =)

    combination of clearness and simple things makes it worth more people to regard.
    Although it is not a big idea and fantastic arrangement, but it shows people what 's fashioned and cool
