But I honestly think it would be in their best interests to so.
There's no money in wallpaper images. Too easy to copy and share. So why not give it away as an advert?
It's when you get popular enough that people want to buy hardcopy (prints, t-shirts, etc.) - or big media companies want to license you work (or hire your talents) that the big $$$ start rolling in.
The best way to do that is to become a recognized artist. Wallpaper is a terrific no-cost way to get your work out there where it can be seen and talked about.
Maybe it might be an idea to post a suggestion either directly to the artist(s) you're interested in or add a comment to that effect on Smashing?
Actually I checked most of them but no joy.
I checked a few
and found some pretty large images, but I'll admit I didn't check all
of them. For example, like Gwen7
, I also liked Hunter Hunted
and found it (at 1024 X 768) in the artist's gallery on Deviant.com.Great examples of humorous 3D CGI creature art
I think it would make a great, albeit creepy desktop image for a honeypot
or a firewall/security server!
(I really like it when the desktop gives a clue as to what you've just logged in on.
