Allow me to start by saying I'm quite happy with this drawing, so if you are not for some reason, I beg your pardon :-) I'm usually not 100% satisfied with every new picture, and just get too tired to continuously improve it, so I just stop somewhere. This time however, I did enjoy the process till the end! And it took me several days to complete.

I wanted to try new technique, so I took a gel pen and A3 paper. After couple of days of relaxed drawing, I scanned the result and continued in Photoshop - added text layers, colors, effects, and some little details (which took another couple of days). I also made several color variations, because I am not sure which color combination is better, so I figured I'd publish all of them.

As you can see, this picture is very hard to use as desktop background - it is too busy with details, hard to see any icons above it. This is intentional. Usually I design my wallpapers with lots of empty space, to make them easy to use. This drawing was specifically designed for my highly successful collaboration with - [link] - they sell vinyl skins for laptops, phones and other devices. So I made this drawing with print in mind, not screen. You might even want to get a poster - I can assure you it will look impressive :-)

P.S. If you're curious, the text written on the pages is from Alice in Wonderland - no wonder, is it?

I'm starting a writer's group called the inkWELL, and am looking for images to use for advertisements, flyers, etc.
May I use this lovely photo?

...And books galore! :D This is an absolutely perfect background for a novelist's (like myself ;) ) desktop. You've made my day. :) :hug: Lol! Now to write! Yeah! :cheer:
I think this color combination is better (but I guess it's a question of feeling) :D
It's not the kind of wall I use but you made a really good job on it :)

I thought it might be Alice in Wonderland! And I like green best, but the design itself is lovely no matter what (:
