apocalypse by hotiron apocalypse by hotiron
NOTE: get this and three others as part of the macabre series [link] or get the rest individually: nightmare [link] sludge [link] and wasteland [link]

UPDATE #1: this incorporates feedback on another board, this is more of a concrete look with less marbling and a bit more bleach

i thought about calling this macabre ... dark and dingy ... but in the end it reminded me of all the post-apocalyptic movies ... really began as just a self-taught lesson in layers, filters and transparency ... had to add the requisite logo version of course (against my will) ... hope you like it, i am pretty happy with it ... already starting on the next rendition

Can i use your no-logo wallpaper to make a xubuntu-logo version?

Sure! Feel free to use and/or mod. I can whomp one up using the original Photoshop file too if you send me a link to the logo you like. Either way, go nuts.

overall, amazing wall mate! but you gotta at least release a 1920x1200. the size you've posted is too small for me.

O, will do. I am working on the a release of them all together ( wasteland [link] sludge [link] nightmare [link] and apocalypse [link] ) called the macabre series. Then I think I'll go back and do them at 2560 x 1600 and with Apple and Win logos too, maybe some more color versions too.

check out this [link] for a 2560x1600 version of apocalypse, i need to make them each from scratch for the larger resolutions because many of the tricks i used at 1680x1050 just don't look the same on larger monitors. so this is a new "made for higher res" version with and without the required apple logo, lemme know ...

No prob, and for more at that size, also check out oxidation [link] it's the byproduct of some playing with a crackle filter and a work in progress but it is native 2560x1600
