Earth by N4u2k Earth by N4u2k
_Earth, as I see it.

This has to be the funnest "throw-together" wallpaper EVER.

A bit of paint here, a bit of stock there, a bit of manipulation here.... and a touch of coolness everywhere.

Oh, Almost forgot. This is for the SSD Collection of wallpapers, which has YET to be released, so if any of you ssdians sell me out to Car, I'll flail you.

More resolutions to follow, as I get requests.

Resolutions available.

1680x1050 |1600X1200 |1440x900 |1280x1024 |1024x768 |800x600.

Thanks For Daily Deviation, Zilla, and to the guy who suggested it, whats its face..umm, too lazy to click back or open a new window.

EDIT: Many thanks to the Chinese government for stealing & printing my work, with no credit.…

Earth by *N4u2k is a very resting wallpaper. It makes our planet so beautiful... even if there are always pollution, injustices or war as it is represented on the right. A pretty background for every desktop! ( Suggested by pickupjojo and Featured by zilla774 )

Damn man, sorry to hear about China stealing your work! Maybe you can somehow leverage this, however, considering that YOUR art is causing a minor international incident, eh? I mean, not REALLY an international incident, but everyone and there brother is talking about how China is subtly threatening the rest of the world! XD

Anyway, fantastic piece! =D Even if you say that it's thrown together!

THE Chinese stole this image and used it as their background photo to launch their moon Rover project. Now YouTube is going crazy over it and using it as a conspiracy theory themed China planned bombing of Russia.
What a way to get publicized ehh?
Reimus1991 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013
Stolen from other deviant? got it for couple of years already....
Reimus1991 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013
Ignore this my fault fail fail fail xD
madciolevap Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013
Yeah, China stealing is no news. At least you are now famous - I know about your work ONLY because of its use as backdrop for their lunar rover model. :)

In completely unrelated news, yay new wallpaper. It is funny, as I live in place that is nuked on picture (Europe). If only were 1920x1080 resolution... pretty please??

Might it be that it's not a nuclear attack, but the Chernobyl disaster?
It seems to be close to the right spot if you compare the image with Google Earth.
SaltIrritates Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I'm sorry that the Chinese had to rip off your work.
At least it gets you more views (like mine).

Can you tell me why you chose Europe for the explosion?

You might want to have a look at the chineese using your image mate,…

Unfortunately the quality is not very good and I can not stretch the picture to full Screen =(
NikDaMark Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
1920x1080 and without the signature, would make a nice wallpaper.
yaroshenko Featured By Owner May 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
have it as main wallpaper more than 2 years now, and still didnt bored it! :)
valentt Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
Whoow, this is awesome! I really like it. Have you thought about making it into wallpaper form?

I'm Fusion Linux project leader and we are looking for some images that we could include in by default in our Linux distribution.

We have tens of thousands of installs, and we would also list all artists that have their art in our distribution and spread the word of your great work that way.

If you would consider this proposal this would a lot to us, because we would like to share and promote great artwork that you have made.

Please check out our home page - [link]

We need all art to be in few different wallpaper resolutions, and licenced under some Creative Commons licence that permits us to distribute artwork freely, just to be clear you still keep all the copyright just give us permission to distribute it for non-commercial purposes. If you aren't familiar with Creative Commons licences I suggest you use "Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs" and also check full list of differenc CC licences at [link]

Aww , I wanted a 1360x768 one :(
NikDaMark Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2011
I'd really like this at 1920x1080 without the signature.
CybertronikPony Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The "finishing touches" are really worth adding in this picture! Oh wait, there were no finishing touches... The whole masterpiece was the finishing touch! Hah! XD
Congrats on your DD!
maximusmmiv Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
I'd love to see a 1920x1200 version of this.
del1ght Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Professional General Artist
I like it but just some small things i would like to point out is the odd consistency of the waves/flares around earth and the mushroom looking cloud to the top right looks odd.

The overall vibe is good and the artwork of the planet is gorgeous. Continue the good work.

maximusmmiv Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011
Would you consider a 1920x1200 version of this wallpaper? It's my absolute favorite of all time, and I'm about to replace my monitor with a 1920x1200 monitor. I'll be really sad if I can't use this one anymore!
