Here is something I wanted to create ;P. This was going to be a one display version (and it is :confused:) but I included another wallpaper for dual display users. Digital painting and photomanipulation done with Photoshop.

Wallpaper sizes:
1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200
1920 x 1200

This picture reminds me of the floating island of the song "Feel Good Inc" by Gorillaz, but this design in turn has a distinctive and expressive touch, i love it

totaly agree.
when I first saw this I almost began to cry, so nice was it. I think I am going to use this as the background of my windows xp pc and the remake for my mac (or my win 7) because win xp also makes me cry...
Very nice artwork, makes me think about Hayao Miyazakis anime movie: Laputa - castle in the sky.
Reminds me of some childrens book I read a loooong time ago :) Love it!

btw how do you do your clouds + skies? gradient for sky and brushes for clouds?
javierocasio's avatar
gradient for the sky and photos of real clouds (edited ofcourse) for the clouds.
wbar's avatar
how do you get the clouds cut out so that parts are semi-transparent and they don't have edges that end abruptly?

I use the erase tool and Select > Color Range to make them smooth.
