A Spike wallpaper (in two variations)  
So, I've joined this lovely graphics comm called whedon_art ... and the second challenge was titled "fire".  And I'm a dork.   So I have here for you a wall in two variations.  It actually comes from a picture of a fire dancer (you  know, those magnificent souls who play with burning flame on a rope?  and then stand so someone can take etherial and beautiful pictures of them?)

And you get...
+ please let me know what you think
+ please don't modify (talk with me, I'm happy to modify for you!)
+ please don't link directly
+ icon/graphics website HERE, resources HERE.

*  i'm being lazy tonight, so if anyone wants a 1280x800 version of this yellow one, just comment and i'll make it right quick - it's not hard ;)

And for those of you who like voting, they're actually voting on Challenge 1 (Things that Go Bump In The Night) - open to all.  There are some fairly fantastic and scary (in the best of ways) pieces there... by the ever talented wickedfox and mary5958 among others!

Ooh! These are so pretty! Love the swirly technique and how you incorporated spike into it. Also really like the effect of the first.

i really really love the first over the second - it's just more pleasing to the eye i think (and slightly calmer). thanks darling!! i'm glad you like!!

Oooh! Hot (in more ways than one) and so very pretty. I think I like the second one best, but they're both lovely.

Also: Voted. Coolness. :-)

Interesting. I like that swirly technique you used. He looks cool.

Thanks! And the swirling actually isn't a technique - it's from a photo of fire dancers (for example this picture">)

Wow, that's amazing.
