FULLVIEW IS A MUST - you will love the details!

Well, well, the submission you see above was actually planed as a contribution for the latest depthcore pack - but I missed the deadline - just a few hours, but I missed it.
(I think they didn´t like it, ;) )

Nevertheless, I hope atleast you like it, although you get a darker and havier piece for your desktop this time.

I was inspired by the autumnal colors and gothic cathedral windows.

Your support (comments and favorites) are mostly welcome.

Don´t rip - use this just for your own desktop.

Here a link to the generic cut of 1600x1200: [link]

I really like the autumnal color scheme you chose for this piece. The lighting and curvature of the design is quite beautiful. Wonderful work!!!

This really is amazing quality, it makes me think of long afternoons and golden light coming through the trees as a warm breese drifts by. Stepping on crunchy autumn leaves is fun. :XD:

I don't know why, but when I look at this I hear Joe Satriani's guitar playin' in the background. lol

Don´t know Joe Satriani - but using Google I found the cover "surfing with the alien" :D

...he was no inspiration, though

What a wonderful wallpaper! The piece makes me think that I'm looking at a drop of fire through a microscope.
However, I don't really like the Silver Surfer in the middle. It seems to me that he is out of place and detracts from the warmth beauty and energy of the whole wallpaper. I think I'd like to see one version without him on the (sort of) center. But maybe that's just me.
That said, the transparency of the lighter "leaves" is delightful. I specially enjoy the clarity of the ones at the left -the wine and red flowers seen through them are beautifully matted.
Adding details on the tentacles that echo other elements in the work was a good compositional choice. And, as has been said before, the color palette is great. :)

tank you very much for this comment and your fidelity - as mentioned before it was a six or eight weeks project - when I had the time. By planning such a "long term thing" I recieved so many different versions of this wall, that it finally was hard to choose the best.
I must see if I have a version without him and if it is worth it to make it public.
To be honest, I was afraid, that ppl could acutally see it that way - but my intention was to create a 3d atmosphere by choosing different light sources - and the surfer himself gets the light from the back, whithout having a stronger source in the front - that´s why he must be displayed in darker, maybe distracting colors.
for your consideration: this is 100% photoshop.
