Neo Grunge by hotiron Neo Grunge by hotiron
You can see this wallpaper in action [link] here. I've always wanted to do a grunge wallpaper, I know there's a lot out there but after playing with some of the great brushes here on DA [link] I finally came up with something I would actually use myself so I thought I'd release it. It may be "just another grunge" wallpaper but this uses a lot of detail, it's done in Ai and finished in Ps using almost 50 layers and about 12 different brushes plus extensive application of Nik Software Color Efex and Alien Skin Nature filters. The font is Adobe Garamond Pro. Inspiration comes from both the great Louie Mantia's Battlestar Galactica grungy wallpaper [link] and the historic Grunge release by =Alexander-GG [link] There are several different versions in this release, some with dock and menubar shadows built-in, some with different text-art, and some undecorated all in both 2560 x 1600 and 1920 x 1080 widescreen sizes. But like Bokeh, Fractal, Gradient and Aurora, the more than 300 grunge wallpapers here on DA "just aren't original".

Uh... this looks pretty cool!

Would it be okay for you if I used it on the web? Like Twitter or my hopefully soon to be blog?

Would it be possible to release the psd so that we could use our own txt. You can flatten the image and just leave the txt and embellishments layer available.
Just asking ;)

Cool, enjoy! I don't think people realize how hard simple walls like this are to create. Funny thing about this project, it is by far the most complex piece of work I've done with dozens of layers and even more effects. And it has been the least popular at the same time. Oh well, I am actually using it so I am happy with it.

oh I know! Same here. one of my problems is once I get what I do want, it's heavy...so, figuring out how to make a lightweight file without losing the detail...Luckily there are some awesome stock textures and brushes here...
Again, nicely done!

Nice wallpaper. It's a pity that I was late to voting in the group. :)

No problem, 90% failure rate on group submissions tends to numb you. Opinion on #Customizers was that 300 grunge wallpapers on DA are all original but the 301st was a rip.
