nanotubes by hotiron nanotubes by hotiron
I really struggled with this one. I was blown away by Maya [link] and started out to make something similar. A pleasing pattern, some light relief, and maybe a bit of grunge. But nothing even came close. So I spent a lot of time just trying to nail down the right pattern and discarded them all. I tried several from Squidfingers but nothing worked for me. So I went back to basics and did this simple dot pattern thing. Then I added a little relief. And all of a sudden I had something I really liked. Then came the lighting. That took a lot longer than I thought. But here it is. Enjoy. This is probably the first thing I've posted here that I actually like.

No problem, I always jump at the chance for me to post a link to another one of my projects. Just some gratuitous self-promotion.

Looks like one of those huge cables that's made up of smaller cables and cut through. It's the lighting and texture that really sells this. I'm glad you stuck with it.

Using it here.

Nice wall man it would be nice to have other sizes due to the fact that when u use it in a 1440X900 the pattern distorts and it doesn't look right. It doesnt look like in the 2560 size i hope you know what i mean ;).

It has 4 sizes in there, 2560x1600,1920x1200, 1680x1050, and 1440x900 although I can only go up to 1680 on this MBP and my HP 22" monitor. The original is 2560 so they are all native (not scaled). So I have not seen what happens at the larger resolutions but I'll do what I can!
