BTW, I'm sorry for my mod

And so you should be!  Ever since seeing that blue nipple, I've been having nightmares about my frigid ex-wives. 

That or I'm dreaming about an Eskimo version of Dolly Parton 'boxing' my ears.

Starkers, there are other possibilities....this could be the result of a woman, riding in a car, drinking a blue raspberry Slurpie, and the driver stepping on the brake suddenly.  I've spilled blue Slurpie down the front of me a few times, with similar results.


Oh dear...now I'm afraid I've made another association with this art work and I'll never be able to look at it without thinking..."Blue Slurpie Accident on a 36-D"

How true!  I hadn't thought of the blue slurpie accident... nor of the fetish involving an icecube and nipples.

"Blue Slurpie Accident on a 36-D"

Now is that the name of the highway or.....????

Never mind, I get the 'picture'.

It does need more work.

 

With that in mind I think all the ladies should post pics of their nipples so we can choose a suitable candidate for the centre of the wall...

Which one would you like?


(True story:  These are nipple badges.  They were originally designed to raise awareness for breast cancer care, and can be purchased in some fancy boutique in London). http://www.piaknight.co.uk/Pages/other/nipples.html

They are awesome.  If I could find them locally, I'd buy a few and put them in inappropriate places, just to be silly.

Is it done?...sorry 2of3 but Orbs have been done to death.The work you did is good quality so I would recommend doing something special with it if you want to use an orb.

Put some electrodes and plasma fluctuations on and in it.Mybe some neat bendy techy cables connected by suction cups.Some LED indicator lights etc...

Try a more ambitious reflection like your seeing the lights of the room.

 

Make it look like it has a function.

(just so you know...I did an orb wall once too LONG ago and got crapped on WITHOUT the advice.The guy was right tho...

I viewed those pics...yuck! Better a reasonable facsimile to those things. Anyway...check out some of the orbs done for objectdock. There is one with those plasma fluctuations in it. I don't have my flash drives with me so I can't look up the name. However a take on this together with blue if it could be made translucent i.e. in layers of graduating translucency would make appear as though you are looking 'into' the orb. Just a thought.

I hear ya.

 

It's screaming at me to put something in the middle. But that's me. It's probably why my walls don't get that many downloads. I have no self-control.

If I had self control forget about it. Five gigs worth of downloads on three flash drives. You could make it a dream and blow it up. Then watch it come back together and violate causality.

Hehe...anuvver true story.   A few years back I was in a cafe having a coffeee with a mate and we spied a young lady across the room who looked like she was wearing 'nipple badges'... well so we thought.  When she walked past us to make another purchase, it became patently obvious that they weren't badges....

Nope, she had cut out two circles in her T-shirt to reveal the real deal.

Badges?  She didn't need no steenkin' badges.

I would very much like to thank I.R, Po and Uvah for taking this post seriously.

I know I went along with the jokes like everyone here, but I did write the OP in hope of some real input.

That looks like it should be captioned, "How The World Came To An End"

@2of3:

You're right...things got a bit "sidelined". My thought (this is a taste thing, Tim...technically it's really perfect) is that the Orb, while pretty, is too large and that it's basically "Fool's Gold" which I truly love.

I would remove the border of the orb where it meets the lines at 3 and 9 o'clock and bring thr lines through the orb with a lens effect (lines diverging as they approach the 12 and 6 o'clock) and the glossy border of the orb and lines might be the same width as the dark border of the horizontal lines part, but they all could be glossy...more a 3D effect. You could stick with the matte black brushed background or put in a sky scene (clouds) or rays from behind the orb (like a sunburst) or stars....whatever YOU like.

I know I'm gonna get beaten on...and it's more than what you asked, probably...but it's honest, and doesn't/shouldn't detract one whit from the great artist that you are.

I must be getting old.

Even worse, I downloaded the damn thing and am trying to add to it. There must be medication for this kind of behavior.

I'm sorry, Tim.  I really think it's done right now, but you know I'm a noob, and my skins don't rate very high.  The reason I would like this just as it is (and I downloaded it for my own personal collection, not simply to add a nipple to it), is because sometimes I like my wallpaper to be simple so that I can add to it with widgets and icons, without it looking too cluttered.  It's just my tastes.  It's why all of my clothes are solid colors...so I can accessorize without looking too much like a circus.

For me the wall is fine. The only thing I would like to see is more definition to the dark ring. It's ok at the top, but just gets a little lost at the bottom. Maybe the ring needs more contrast and the lower part of the wall a little less dark.

I wouldn't add anything else - clean is best.
