I have never received 5 suggestions for 1 wallpaper in just about 5 minutes, and surely it is worth suggesting.Where subscriber's money goes by *priteeboy is an absolutely stunning wallpaper!! How I wish we could all live in that beautiful island and enjoy the rest of our lives. Even if we can't, lets have this as our wallpaper and dream!

Where subscriber's money goes

If your'e gonna save it, then fave it! ;)

With my own Subscription ending hours after submitting this, I thought why not poke fun at the matter and create an original dA-lover wallpaper for the occasion :devart: Perhaps I might buy a sub again when I actually have money to blow, but I stand proud on the fact that I kept myself subscribed for almost 2 years on contest winnings alone and never had to spend a cent :winner:

Funny though, when actually browsing categories, there was a "Customisation > Wallpaper > deviantART" that I wanted to submit this into, yet that wasn't available when submitting, so how did that other one I saw get in there? :confused: so I chose 3D art instead, which it mostly is, though there was Photoshop work, it is mainly based off a Vue scene I made, cleverly shaping the terrain for the island as the dA logo, as well as using it to distribute the greenery in the right areas. The water was a rather uniform blue in the original render so I had to spice it up in PS too to give that "coral atoll" look.

Ahh yes, deviantART - the place to be

Edit: OMG! :iconneowolf06: bought me a new subscription! go give some love to this generous and talented deviant too plz! my way of repaying him :handshake:
Edit2: wow, I have never gotten over 3000 faves in 24 hours before, thanks a lot guys :D
Edit3: neither have I gotten a DD in less than 24 hours of posting something. Thanks for the flattering support! :love:

LOL! Ok first of all, this is where we WISH subscriber money went. Thoughts for improvement; perhaps the island could be on a slant, so that the top of the dA island (northern part) had cliffs ... where the "house" or whatever would be located. It would also be awesome if the "a" area was a small marina of sorts with really neat boats in it.

Overall though this was thrilling, thanks so much!

In that case, I'm gonna let my subscription run out and stay a member at the basic level until further notice.

So this is what the Chinese man-made island in the South China Sea looks like.

I had no idea China did one too :O

Aye, they're making a military base or something.

This would indeed be quite the feat of engineering. I would approve of my sub to go to such a creative endeavor :meow:

Maybe if subs were $1000 per month ;p

The new logo would make an ideal design for the nearby mainland airfield and landing strip. Then you take that luxury boat to the Island, and then when you get there...

...seagulls crap on you!

Except for when you're in the city - there you get pigeon-crap instead :nod:
