Cold by precurser Cold by precurser
UPDATE: coasters/magnets/mousepads/postcards now available!

Photography/manipulation by me, original subject was a small skull keychain. This is actually a really toned down version of something I will be releasing in a few days. (all squiggly lines were drawn by hand with my wacom tablet).

All resolutions available at EndEffect.com.

This has been one of my favourite wallpapers since way back when I first got into deviantART...I originaly got it from End Effect, so I guess I never really 'looked' for it on dA.

I actually saw this desktop on a co-workers computer the other day, and he doesn't frequent the usual design sites, such as deviantART or even your own site. Yet, it was on his desktop, and I said it looked awesome, to which he said "it's done by someone named precurser, or something like that..."

I laughed, pointed him out to your stuff, and he's been busy downloading ever since. Another one converted....

Great wallpaper.

It's ok, but nothing special. The skull isn't really my thing, but I like the lines and the way the text is placed.

i can't see changing my desktop from this image yet. I usually change every half hour, but this one is soooo good, i have to minimize all my apps every so often just to stare at that baleful eye. I like the composition waaay better of it halfway off the screen.

thanks for posting such a FANTASTIC image, precurser.

Interesting piece. It doesn't really look like a skull to me. I mean, the concept it there, but the big flaring lines up and down in the middle distort the image to much. It makes it seem way to long and it loses it's roundness and seems to flat for my liking.
