Steampunk Wallpaper by SpaceTurtleStudios Steampunk Wallpaper by SpaceTurtleStudios
This is not the kind of thing I usually do, but I ended up playing with Photoshop last night and this was the result: a steampunk wallpaper! I was really just messing around, but I was so pleased with how this turned out that I decided to put it up here as well.

Resolution is 1280 x 800 (download for full size); 1024 x 768 version is here: [link]

Important Note about Using: As a wallpaper, you are of course free to use it on your personal computer-- that's what it's for. But I would appreciate it if you didn't use this in other projects-- photomanips, combinations with other wallpapers, or new creations like that. If you want to use it for a project (like a book cover) please e-mail me for information about licensing.

Update! This image is now available as iPhone or iPod cases over on RedBubble: [link]

As always, if you're going to display it on another site, please link back here or otherwise credit me.

Thanks!

Hey Beth! I'm part of a tech start-up that is building an app and this artwork you created is absolutely perfect for the vibe we're going for! Could we chat about how much it would cost for licensing purposes? Thanks!

Hi, I work in a school library and we'd like to use your image to promote steampunk literature. It would be behind text "If you like Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld and would like to read more fantasy books set in a steampunk world try....' and then a list of other boks below. Would that be ok with you? I can add your name into the bottom of the image?

You can use it as a background, but please have a credit with my name and link back here somewhere prominent so people know where the art came from.

Hello, is it possible to use it for my private photo-collage as background to show my steampunk gadgets I builded ?
Thank you for your help...

If it's something that's only going to live on your computer, that's fine. But I'd prefer if you didn't collage it and then use it in a deviation or anything.

I love the "rawness" of this design, what was you inspiration?

:iconspaceturtlestudios:
SpaceTurtleStudios Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011  Professional General Artist
Mm. Most of it was that I saw a steampunk wallpaper site, and went "Those are lame. I can do better." Then I opened all the stock photos I had that involved clockwork, and sort of started... fiddling around. I threw in some textures and tree-branch brushes, and an hour or two later I had this.

I keep meaning to make another one since this is so popular, but somehow I never get 'round to it. :)
