Artist's Note

j3 thought of the idea of a grunge-tech crossover piece, something different. We've been working on this for quite while so its been through a fair bit of development (j3 developed some of his ideas from this piece into the "ego war" pack). I spent alot of time on trying to get the right effect in terms of the scope of texturing, and j3 of course added loads of subtle details which brought the whole piece together. He also put together a browner version which solely plays with the colour and detailing, just gotta love pink and brown. Original photo was taken by Aphaits.

as far as wallpapers go, this is what the people want. people want this kind of wall on their desktop and i'm inclined to agree. i would use this wallpaper for an extended period. that's all i have to say i suppose.

An excellent peice of work. For all the qualms I have with this sort of nonsensical techy-overlay type stuff, it just works so damn well, here. "Made from 100% recycled ideas," it made me chortle, a little.

:) grungie love. I really love how you put those pink bits. Kinda like a weird contrast but a very J3 piece. Congrats to both of you on the feature (woohoo). I don't fully agree with mojo to "this is what the people want" bit, grunge is an exotic delicacy, but this kind of experimentation is just what custo users need to do.

What the. Does time effect you guys differently over there? You just keep spitting stuff out. Luckily, your spit is gold. I admire you both, especially headvoid. You guys just jumped in and have been running through ever since. We need a featured user section here.

It is indeed nice, but there are a LOT of elements that haven't been refined.

Haven't commented in close to forever, but I just had to introduce my desktop to its new wallpaper.
