This goes beyond wallpaper. This is one that needs to hang on a physical wall. :clap:

I love the mood you've created with this scene, and the... gravity, somehow, really caught my eye, with the bee suspended in that moment before the flower.

Thank you. I've always admired people who could use space to balance a picture, and have tried to apply the same technique, from time to time.

do you have any traditional work uploaded on DA? Again, great piece! Since you can work in both traditional and digital, I am doubly envious of you now :D :hug:

...no...I took it down. It was a polar bear's head done on board in acrylic. And right now, I am without a scanner in my life.
Aw thanks. :D

I feel your pain about the scanner. Mine is absolutely awful :no:

It doesn't let you do adjustments, either? Mine didn't...I think it was one of the older models...

mine currently likes to blur a quarter of each scan. Since I use a lot of Gesso in my work it also tends to pick up the hot white areas.

I need to invest in a moderately priced one. I've heard decent things about HP flatbed scanners. mine is a canon. any picture over 8x10 needs 4 or more scans to get the full image :no: If you look at say the last 5/6 uploads of mine, they are all terrible scans. Unfortunately I can't wait to show people my work so.. :P

Do you adjust for that in photoshop? I use photoshop to adjust colors and brightness on my reference photos, when I'm doing animals up close, like owls, which is easy, as I just download from my camera.

In all honesty, I didn't notice. :) I was taking in the gorgeous scenes. Do you plan on having a show sometime?

Such a beautifully simple scene! x3 I have a feeling of soft watercolor with that cream flower =)

I agree with the wallpaper sentiment. I just wish my screen didn't have such odd dimensions ^^;

Oo, you have a wide screen too? My screen distorts a picture if I try to fill the screen..:(

Not just a wide screen, but one with off dimensions. My res is 1280 X 800, an 8/5 ratio.

:O Do you create your own wallpapers?

I have to ^^; Or fill in the background with a solid color.

Oh, I'd definitely go with a good wallpaper, then, even if I did have to create it myself. :) I tried a solid color once...for about 5 mins...:)

I mean have a solid color behind a wallpaper that isn't quite the right dimensions.

Ah...gotcha...but you piqued a desire to see if I could do a "weird wallpaper" picture using those particular dimensions. ;)
