NOTE: get this and three others as part of the macabre series [link] or get the rest individually: nightmare [link] sludge [link] and wasteland [link]

UPDATE #1: this incorporates feedback on another board, this is more of a concrete look with less marbling and a bit more bleach

i thought about calling this macabre ... dark and dingy ... but in the end it reminded me of all the post-apocalyptic movies ... really began as just a self-taught lesson in layers, filters and transparency ... had to add the requisite logo version of course (against my will) ... hope you like it, i am pretty happy with it ... already starting on the next rendition

Good work!
Can i use your no-logo wallpaper to make a xubuntu-logo version?
I can't find the license of your work! ;)

Sure! Feel free to use and/or mod. I can whomp one up using the original Photoshop file too if you send me a link to the logo you like. Either way, go nuts.

overall, amazing wall mate! but you gotta at least release a 1920x1200. the size you've posted is too small for me.
hotiron's avatar
O, will do. I am working on the a release of them all together ( wasteland [link] sludge [link] nightmare [link] and apocalypse [link] ) called the macabre series. Then I think I'll go back and do them at 2560 x 1600 and with Apple and Win logos too, maybe some more color versions too.

sounds great!

Well, the set is finally out [link] so I can now get started on the larger resolutions!
JR007's avatar
groovy, cannot wait for sizes. ty!

check out this [link] for a 2560x1600 version of apocalypse, i need to make them each from scratch for the larger resolutions because many of the tricks i used at 1680x1050 just don't look the same on larger monitors. so this is a new "made for higher res" version with and without the required apple logo, lemme know ...
JR007's avatar
ah, thank you, is perfect!

No prob, and for more at that size, also check out oxidation [link] it's the byproduct of some playing with a crackle filter and a work in progress but it is native 2560x1600

Excellent wall... :)

Why do Macaholics always have to have a version with the apple in the middle...? :D

Thanks man! I have been having a lot of fun with this one ... teaching myself layers, transparency & filters.
