By Contrast...
Over the past five weeks I've featured some wonderful images created in (for the most part) a single color. In contrast, this week,  here are some equally beautiful works made with contrasting colors.
I hope you enjoy this article as much as I've enjoyed putting it together. By faving this article   you can help support these talented artists and raise their profiles... Go on, share the love! :heart: :giggle:
If you missed them - here are the single-color features:

Digital Abstract ARTs in March , 2010
I love abstract arts!
These works are the best of Abstract arts released in March, 2010 which I chose. Those works have the great composition, atmosphere and colors. We will be given a new wind from those great works.
I want to say that thank you very much for making the great arts. And I hope everybody likes these works.
I'm looking forward to their great works in the future.

You're welcome for the faves. :)  Your fractal jewels are gorgeous and the work you put into them is inspired.  I'm a Photoshop user and I've been trying to figure out how you did them. ;)  Jewel and stone images must be part of it, blending fractals into them, along with some style applications for gold or silver?  Either way, they're beautiful work. :)

Do you do Android Themes as well? Recently I saw one of your wallpaper in an android theme on with the buzz launcher.

With your great Wallpapers there is great potential for customizing cell phones :-).
nmsmith Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I have had a couple individuals ask permission to do an Android theme - noncommercial.  There have been others that have stolen my work for their own purposes.  There is a potential there, but I've been to busy to really consider doing it.
dragonworld5 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2016
thanks for the reply. Too bad, I would have downloaded your Android themes instantly :-)
