First of all I think more people should make wallpapers I think its an art that is lost. Second I love the visual effect of this piece. I think however that you should consider staggering the pieces at different heights. Maybe draw out the root systems a little more. There is a great grunge background but I think the actual little islands could be a little larger.

Fi2-Shift Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2009
thnks for those words, and yes i agree, more people should.. but o well T_T, explain me that of the root systems please?
Reply
:iconmeandyouphoto:
MEandYouPhoto Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2009
Have you ever taken a plant out of a pot and shaken off all of the dirt..... The roots are tangled masses under the plant. The islands that you have here have large amounts of earth and they look like they have been there for a while. If you added some roots to the bottom then it will make them look more ancient.
