dA_SpreadSplatter_Dark by TheRyanFord dA_SpreadSplatter_Dark by TheRyanFord
This is a darker version of the dA_SpreadSplatter I uploaded yesterday. I'm not one for bright wallpapers, so I mostly made this one for myself. I also embellished upon it a bit more to make it comfortable with the depth I usually like on my desktops.

Hit the Download link for the full 1920x1200 wallpaper.

I found hidden things, look at the left-bottom-corner, you will see the devART text logo. now look near the DevART logo, you will see the devART logo. It's great!

*changes to this one* Dark always wins. Especially staring at a computer screen all day.

Also, In the mini preview I see a face in the design and tbh, its freaking me out. Surely not intentional but just makes this all the more awesome.

I like this work, I really do. However, it suffers the comparison with that other bright guy (pun intended :)). I prefer dark colors too, but there's a couple of reasons why I think the other one is better.

In the first place, this is for a wallpaper, which means it should "play nice" with whatever you're doing. I'm a sysadmin working primarily in the *nix world, so that means I always have lots of terminal windows around. Semi-transparent terminals.
This has taught me an important lesson in my wallpaper choice: a wallpaper should be unobtrusive, fairly neutral, and most importantly should be made of colors that blend a lot together. That green is too bright to work well with dark gray/black, and any transparent window could get part of its text content killed by the background. Font color choice becomes really hard when you hit brightness extremes in the same image. The white version isn't perfect - see the left side - but I think it's better from this PoV.

The second point is that wooden floor texture: I just hate it. Just joking :) Aside from personal preferences, I think its straight lines contrast a bit too much with the "brush strokes" that define the style.

Anyway, great work in both cases, and sorry if I can't elaborate more, I have problems with English technical terms :D

Awesome, I've been looking for a wallpaper with such color pattern for a while. It's perfect, except for my screen, which is oldschool 1024x768 T_T but I hope you don't mind if I adjust it a little so that it fits?

Thank you.

I had downloaded the first version but I don't like bright wallpapers that much, as they raise the energy usage, damage the screen (thinking on a loong usage time) and hurt my eyes easily as I'm connected even with low light sources. So, this one came in handy.

In fact, on LCD screens, dark wallpapers waste more power than bright ones. This happens because you keep powered the whole screen through the LCD backlight (while on CRT you only use power on "lit" pixels"), and obtaining black requires slightly more power than obtaining white. However, it doesn't change very much, it's even difficult to measure. Your other reasons are good, btw ;)

Very nice. I agree, that white/green combination wasn't good at all for a wallpaper. :P

When I get home from school (haha) this is definitely getting saved to my computer.
