Another terrific wallpaper. There's no mistaking one of your images Nathan. Cool rainbow colored flower. Would make for a good photo album cover! =0)

Nathan you've outdone yourself here. This is really stunning. 10 form me, in my favorites and on me desktop.

Excellent Nathan, I like the earthy leather look, and it makes a very nice desktop with room for Icon...

But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling, like dew, upon a thought produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions think and smile. Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind.

You are really doing well with these simple backgrounds, its just not that simple though, which is why your art is amazing. 10/10 and keep up the good works ;)

Thank you. I'm pleased you enjoyed this one. I liked how the leathery texture turned out. If any of you want to try it, here's the basic procdure. 1) Create a new layer in Photoshop and fill it with a black to white gradient. 2) Do FILTERS - RENDER - DIFFERENCE CLOUDS, then IMAGE - ADJUSTMENTS - HUE/SATURATION and click on the colorize checkbox, and set it to a muted warm color. 3) Create another new layer and follow the same steps as before (pick a slightly different color) - but set this layer to overlay or one of the other blending modes. Play around with the opacity until it looks right. You might continue a couple more times until you get a look and feel you like. Once you're happy - flatten the image and save it as a .psd (Photoshop document). To give it some texture, do FILTER - TEXTURE - TEXTURIZER and choose your .psd file you just saved to apply texture to it. Enjoy.

How was this made in Photoshop, is there a rendering program in Photoshop to make this? Very nice for a desktop by the way.
