This brilliant mix of ugly faces creates a great impact, with well-balanced vibrant colours inviting us to look closer at all the subtleties. A really hypnotizing wallpaper.
An impactful wallpaper with a stunning interpretation of the theme, where we can observe all the creepy details plunged into the darkness, highlighted by a great execution.
This composition has a great impact, thanks to the game light/shadows producing movement. A powerful wallpaper showing skill in spotlighting the monsters.
