As a wallpaper, I tried to remain conscious of desktop space and utility and tried not to load up the image with too many graphic elements that would get in the way of using this on any PC or Mac.
damnit, I would have picked this one over a lot of the ones that are actually in the semi finalists section. I think you were robbed and should have gotten some recognition on the top 100.
Thanks, it's nice to hear that. I've seen various competitions here and have very little faith in the abilities of the Deviant art staff to actually make good choices. Not that I think mine was a winner--there were some better, but I have no idea what criteria they use to pick anything.
this looks amazing, I think this one's gonna go far
Thanks--I appreciate the vote of confidence. Contests with big prizes usually means competing against professional artists (which I am not), so I'll just keep my fingers crossed. Thanks again for your kind comments.
