September Wallpapers & Calendars Now Available!

Whooopps! I’m very late with my September wallpapers!

For my September wallpaper and calendar collection I wanted to do a big planet with a really gnarly texture - I ended up doing three! Imaginatively, the illustration is called ‘Trinity’ and is 100% Photoshop.

The planet textures came from all sorts of places, and each of the planets comprises multiple textures in layers - textures include slate, granite, moss covered rocks and so on.

As usual, you will find English and French calendar versions, the packs for each language contain a choice of widescreen sizes up to 3200x2000 (2560x1440 for the calendars). The standard iPad/tablet sized wallpaper looks great on my phone. I have also added an iPad retina hi-res version.

July Wallpapers & Calendars Now Available!

Hey,
I have just uploaded my July wallpaper - it’s called ‘New World Reconnoitre’

New World Reconnoiter-Thumb
For my July wallpapers I wanted to produce an image that was totally 3d and also featured a realistically lit spaceship - I haven’t been happy with my space scene lighting at all.

So here we go - totally produced in Cinema 4D; the planet was created using Michael Welters ‘Atmosphere’ plug in. I used my own textures with Atmosphere to produce ‘New Terra’ (including a 16k cloud texture).

As usual, you will find English and French calendar versions, the packs for each language contain a choice of widescreen sizes up to 3200x2000 (2560x1440 for the calendars). I have also added an iPad retina hi-res version. The standard iPad/tablet sized wallpaper looks great on my phone.

June Wallpapers & Calendars Now Available!

It’s wallpaper time!

For my June wallpaper and calendar collection I thought I would create a space scene that celebrated Ridley Scott’s new Sci-Fi film ‘Prometheus’ which opened in Paris yesterday. In his original ‘Alien’ as well as ‘Prometheus’, the planet visited by humans is a moon around a ringed gas giant.
Gas Giant-Thumb
No 3d work in this months image - everything was created in Photoshop. The planet textures came from all sorts of places; for instance, the moon in the foreground is created from a montage of satellite pictures of Moroccan desert. Because of the angle, I had dreadful problems with the gas giant rings - it was very difficult to get the perspective right and to ensure they were recognisable as rings. I’m still not convinced they look right.

As usual, you will find English and French calendar versions, the packs for each language contain a choice of widescreen sizes up to 2560x1440. The standard iPad/tablet sized wallpaper looks great on my phone. I have also added an iPad retina hi-res version.

May Wallpapers & Calendars Now Available!

Hey all,
the #Inner Space Group over at Deviantart is holding a competition for illustration with the theme of “Sol” and I have used my entry for that competition as this months wallpaper. The image was inspired by an Arthur C Clarke short story called 'Summertime on Icarus' in which a research spaceship gets to within seventeen million miles of the Sun, shielded by the asteroid Icarus.

The Sun and starfield were created in Photoshop, whilst the planetoid and spaceship were created in Cinema 4D. The spaceship is deliberately in the style of the great Peter Elson.

As usual, you will find English and French calendar versions, the packs for each language contain a choice of widescreen sizes too. The standard iPad/tablet sized wallpaper looks great on my phone. I have also added a ‘new iPad’ retina hi-res version for all of you new iPad users.

Hey all,
Spring is here, it’s the end of March and time for a new wallpaper to brighten up your desktop! This month, my image is a Photoshop creation called ’Light Wave’. Following my wife’s request for ‘warmer’ images, I’m still trying to weave as much green in to my images to reflect the arrival of warmer weather.

March Wallpapers & Calendars Now Available!

Curiosity on the way to discovery-thumb
I have just uploaded the March wallpaper and calendars - yes, it’s already the end of February! This month it’s a composite Cinema 4D render, with Photoshop backdrop. My wife complained to me bitterly that the previous few images were too cold and that she wanted colours that would remind her of Spring. So, here we go! An interstellar probe sent from Earth approaching a planet deep in the heart of a hydrogen-rich nebula - hence the green! I have named it ‘Curiosity on the way to discovery’, in honour of the Mars mission.
