Desire and Disparity
Production & Process
This is what Tobias had to say about the creation of the wallpaper.
After deciding on the concept, I made a rough sketch in Photoshop to base the composition on. The hunt for photos of hands began, and after collecting quite a few I cut them out and placed them into the composition. The fire was created mainly by warping pictures of flames into the shapes I desired. A 3D heart stock by Shoofly-stock was brought in and manipulated to create the heart.
I used Apophysis to create abstract renders which I used to create motion and texture in the background. Pixelmator was used to create some final touches, which was brought back into Photoshop for final composite.
