Long tutorial is long. Q_Q

Some people wanted to know how I make desktop wallpapers and how to make desktop wallpapers in general - what they needed for them, what to pay attention to etc., so I decided to make a tutorial for them. This mostly covers the basics of walling so it's good for absolute beginners but I guess others are also welcome to read it. :3

This took me about 3-4 days to make, mostly because I had to create some images of my own and go look for some others. I may have forgotten some things perhaps and don't be surprised if you see some typos but all in all, I hope this helps you. XD

No ripping please! >_<

Hey, that was a really nice tutorial. Though I'm not a wallpaper artist, just a doodler, this was nice insight into how you work. I love how you taught things like Rule of Thirds and shading.
