"Ensnare" by Shadowness .... uploaded 2001.
I have no 'idea' what he used....or how .... so the result was/is intriguing.
This wall ticks a lot of squares.... and is still my favourite, 9 years later.
It's 'dark' ...so not glary and thus tiring on your eyes.
It has space for icons .... even the tabloid form on the right suits gadgets/widgets.
It has a mechanical/technical/android/borg 'feel' that suits a computer in essence.
It has 'blue' in it.... [seems that's a MUST for walls - it's so common].
The Title/tag are integrated into the image, not stuck on as an afterthought.
MOST people would be incapable of doing it themselves, no matter what tools/programs they have - so making it available for download is the only option if they want it... or something like it.
It's UNIQUE. Shadowness did NOT replicate it and reupload 15 permutations of colour-hue shift. [there's 16.7 million chances for that].
If he managed to author one new wall every week or two... and ended with 20 or 30 in a year it'd be a fair bet the standard wouldn't likely decline as it tends to do with more prolific uploaders.
Flooding submissions is a sure-fire method of having them all end up on your personal pages..... good OR bad.
The main thing with this example wall is that no matter how you look at it there was actual time and effort involved so flooding was an impossibility...
