eclipse by hotiron eclipse by hotiron
I am still searching for that perfect, grey, minimalist background. This is actually based on the three dimensional pattern I created for nanotubes [link] but works it in more as a texture using a relatively high texture channel in the lighting effects. There are three widescreen sizes and one phone format here right now: 2560x1600, 1680x1050, 1440x900 ans 320x480 but others are always possible.

UPDATE #1: Here's an expansion pack with several different colors (suede, plum, olive, aqua, sea foam) an apple logo and a star burst pattern, all at 1680x1050. [link]

UPDATE #2: Here's a full 1280x800 expansion pack with all the colors, apple logo and star burst [link]

UPDATE #3: Here's a full 1440x900 expansion pack with all the colors, apple logo and star burst [link]

UPDATE #4: I have pulled together all the expansion pack files into the main download now.

Sure, that size is tough for me 'cause I can't test it (jealous) but here's full 2560x1660 expansion pack [link] This has all the flavors in the full res plus the apple and star-burst versions. This also has the new dark suede requested elsewhere.

I used your excellent wallpaper for a desktop screenshot Lots of people like it. Is there any way you can make 1600x1200 versions? The one I'm using is cropped. Thank you for your work!

That looks great! Here's a 1600 x 1200 expansion pack [link] with the original eclipse in grey and all the colors (including the suede which you've made look awesome). I also included one of the new, more uniform softer versions that was requested (only in grey). That's the one I am using now. Enjoy!

Here's a shot at some color options and some with decoration. [link] This has aqua, plum, olive, sea foam, suede, apple logo and a star burst pattern both on grey all in 1680x1050 widescreen. Let me know what you think. I may update the main download with these options if they work out.

Great new versions hotiron! :)
I specially like "olive"... it fits my current mood (a little darker actually)!
Are you thinking on releasing these in 1440*900?
Reply
:iconhotiron:
hotiron Featured By Owner May 16, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Try these, this has the new spin-offs in 1440x900 and I add in a slightly darker olive one too. Maybe this will get closer to your current theme? [link]

pedroL Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
Really good hotiron! :)
"olive" and "suede" are definetly "my" colors! ;)

How do you feel about "softer" corners?
Do you think they could be less "pronounced/dissonant"?

Thanks for these and for being open to suggestions! :)

Here's a darker olive version of the more uniform lighting.

I did try several versions with softer, more uniform lighting that did not accentuate the corners nearly as much. Here are two of them [link] [link] Let me know what you think. I went with the darker edges because they bring out the dock and the drives with the added contrast.
