Books (Color 2)

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 DecalGirl.com - 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 actually find this background quite perfect for my desktop. I have no icons whatsoever, only a Rainmeter theme running, which blends in nicely altogether, for my liking. Also, I use a wall clock version :) Thank you for all the amazing artwork. I just bought the premium account and am enjoying myself greatly.
