I proudly present to you:
Cosmic View
by your friendly neighbourhood Michelman(n) :spidey:


I have always wanted to create galaxies :)
and yes, I have always wanted to write a spiderman related pun like the one above..

:bulletred:Technical Details:
:bulletblue:Original Dimensions: 5000x3750px @ 300dpi
:bulletblue:approx 30 hours of work
:bulletred:used:
:bulletblue:photoshop
:bulletblue:wacom intuos3 a5


:bulletred:Personal comment:
This started as a totally different concept, but turned out to be a galaxy-ish one after all.
I know, a planetary constellation like this is completely impossible, but still, at least it was fun creating it.
Hope you like it!

p.s.: This is a small test concerning file compression.
The wallpaperpack will be super small (~2,5mb), but with the same amount of wallpaperpower! :)


:bulletred:Wallpaperpack:
:bulletblue:1024x768
:bulletblue:1280x960
:bulletblue:1280x1024
:bulletblue:1440x900
:bulletblue:1600x1200
:bulletblue:1680x1050
:bulletblue:1920x1200

Also, check out the print version - it's signed :o :D

Thanks for the constructive criticism Tobi and my brother, Marcel!

I really like this piece and would very much like to use it as the background for one of my works... would it be okay if I posted my final picture (including your background) on my DeviantArt account if I left your "cosmic view" logo on it?

As long as there is no commercial use (including prints) and/or hateful/discriminating content involved, it's ok :)
You can also remove the cosmic view logo on it, just give me credit in the description :)

Dud, your stuff is truly awe inspiring! I usually don't like "artists impressions" of deep space, but you put a little something in that make them fun and gorgeous!

I now have a bunch of wallpapers to put on my Mac Pro, iPad and iPhone! You should consider making a wallpaper app for iOS and Android. Even for just $0.99, I think you could make some serious money.

thanks for the comment and the input, but I think I'll keep my wallpapers free of charge for everyone to set up on their personal devices :)

I'm just glad to hear that people decide to use my images on their desktops and I wouldn't want to charge any money for that :)
