Artist's Note

I've been bored these pass few days since I have no class and I have been off of work this week. So, a continuation to add to my portfolio. And since I was bored today ..... Minimalistic wallpaper. Photo manipulation with multiple texture rendering. Influences from Print Magazine, Photoshop User Magazine, and Floodgear. I like the yellow/brown tones. =) Its different. 150 dpi resolution for personal print production. Peace.

good minimalism. The design is exquisite and its as usable as can be. The colors are interesting, and not too bad for use, but this gets boring to look at after a while, as it kinda lacks depth. The manip is good too btw

kind of an interesting comp, i'd almost like it better w/out the photo, and more play with the text and those darker hued shapes.... like if the the field where the photo was was just a large block of that darker greenish brown, with some other basic design work inside it........

i wouldhave definately liked to see some simple dark-green hue design.

so CLOSE! Its a brilliant idea, but the background seems just a tiny shade off, and I don't like "somewhat of a paradox"

Looks great.. Nice color choice, its very soothing and relaxing. The field looks great too, it has a style to it that looks almost as if it were hand drawn/colored and then blurred in photoshop. Its my new wallpaper. Thanks Rkenshin. ;)
