Happy Birthday (Make a Wish)


SKU: happybirthday1 Category: Tags: , ,


It occurred to me not long ago that while I have wallpapers for several holidays, I have neglected one very important holiday: Your Birthday. Now, I don’t like to render food (or have it on my wallpaper) so I tried to think of something else.

I hope you like what I came up with. I put it together on my laptop while Shadowfax rendered the first draft of another new Autumn piece I am working on.

Of course I am posting it because it is my own birthday today (9-11). To celebrate I am offering the new wallpaper for FREE today for anyone else who shares my birthday (or has one coming up). Enjoy!

    I think this work could be re-titled to “The Light Within”, a fitting image of the candle represents hope for a more balanced, peaceful world, and people working together in harmony.

    No one knows how old this world of ours is. Truth be told, this globe won’t last to the next millennia birthday id we treat it with such disdain!

    Make this one without the earth or the candle, it would be my fav one ever. you make great spacescapes. or make it without the candle. your realism is incredible.

    It gets the message out there, but in a creative not in your face way that keeps people guessing.

  5. ColdTech [nonmonthly]

    I like it. very imaginative.

    I agree with the foot as wallpaper unless it’s done uniquely. One I have loved for a while is http://www.bonappetit.com/entertaining-style/trends-news/article/food-cubes-art

    Very cool to see and have people guess the ones that aren’t so obvious…that’s if you can figure it out yourself.

    I love the way you have the Aurora Australis playing over Antarctica…and I’m pretty sure I see the Borealis at the base of the candle. The city lights over the more populated regions are a nice touch too, bringing to mind your several versions of “Campfires”.

    C’mon… if no one had thought of it, it was only a matter of time before someone put his pun hat on.

    Was BEarth-Day cheesy to say? Sure, but everyone loves cheesecake ^_^

    How thoughtful to provide a special birthday render for our annual trips around the sun. Darn it, I’ll have to wait until next June to post the Facebook cover. 😉
