I made this drawing for upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 operating system, alas, too late for official competition! The OS codename is "Trusty Tahr", and I originally wanted to draw a tahr, but instead I was inspired by  a place where they live - Himalayan mountains. I used triangulation technique as  a basis, but ended up painting over the "triangular grid" by hand. Thanks for watching!

Love it! To bad you missed the Ubuntu deadline though. Never mind, can still use this when 14.04 gets released :-)
Darrin Wan 10 March 2014
Love the Himalayan mountain scene. Reminds me of 'purple mountains majesty'. Nice job!

Hello Vlad, I miss your arts so much! Especialy now the christmass arts. I believe you are too busy to do some. Well, there is nothing we can do, but to be sad. Or is it?

I don't know why. The image is sharp on my browser. But after I downloaded it, it's not as sharp and a little blurred. My monitor resolution is 1920X1080 and that's the one I "saved as" to my PC. Does anyone know what's going on?
Jacob Amidon 2 January 2015
I have loved your work for somevtime, and this, this is amazing!
GraveDigger27 3 March 2015
HanQin - I would suggest trying it again. It might be that you tried downloading the file before the image had completely loaded on your monitor - sometimes it takes a few extra moments for all of the elements to fully load (I see this on Digital Blasphemy on some of their more complex images...) It may also be related to your connection speed.
Jorjei 3 March 2015
Lol it looks so awesome honestly , one of my favorites!
Zoe V 11 March 2015
I was just browsing through the App Store and noticed a wallpaper app called "Wallpapers HD for iOS8 & iPhone6 (by Yin Yu)" is showing several of your wallpapers under their product shots to be downloaded. I wasn't sure if you allowed this but thought you would want to know.
Sam 18 March 2015
That's incredible!
Theo 22 March 2015
I LOVE THIS BACKGROUND! I have used it since "day 1" on my new macbook. It would be really cool if this came in other colors. (blue, green, etc.) Thanks for the awesome screensaver!
