Hello everyone :D

Well it seems that this simple texture is really appreciated by you people ^^ As I'm writing Downloads have gone to 30K !

Maybe it's nothing but for me it means a lot... A real lot !

Thinking about how I started it, I just needed a cool background for my desktop, something simple, something effective... It will sound stupid but I'm proud for making it, at least I've made something that people liked ^^

For the people who use it, I hope you'll have fun with it. I'll try to get the original .PSD and add more resolution, big ones :D

And don't forget to credit the maker ^^

EDIT : 450K reached ! Imagine if I asked one $ for each download...


For the companies out there who wish to use it, you're free to go but please, ask before using it.

Some have already used it as a Twitter background (ring some Bell?), an advertising background (for a duty-ful FPS) and even a Youtube movie background (for a not-so-serious FPS)...

I'm not asking for a contribution but seriously, it would feel so much better if you asked beforehand.

But of course if you feel bad about using such a beautiful wallpaper without giving a penny, feel free to contact me and make a generous donation :D (one can dream...)

Hi, I'm from a media company and just wondering if we can use your artwork as an element of our game design.

Thanks kindly!

I love this artwork. May I please use it for a header background on a site I'm building for my friends security company? I can link your deviantart profile.

Hey! I'm was wondering if i could use this as the background on my business card? I'm just starting a small photography business. I'd be happy to show you the design.

Hi Braemoor,

Of course you can use it, sorry for taking so long, I'm not very active on dA those last years...

I can't wait to see the result :D

dA wouldn't let me upload the .tif or CMYK .jpeg, so right now it's RBG. Hopefully it came out clear & the colors are right! :o

I never thought of using it for a business card... nice render ^^

Watch out for the border, the printers has a inside margin that will be cut off at the printing, there are a lot of templates out there for the dimensions, they often include those margins.

I bought it through Vista Print and used their template, then had their customer service check the dimensions and they said it was all good! :la:
