Seen som of them before…But I really like the two with Pirate-themes. And Stabilis is fabolus.

Nice thanks for sharing

HieuUK May 05 2009

Thank for the collections, my favorite is the “Rising sun”. Quite impressive light effect. I love the Simpsons, unfortunately, it’s a quite simple.

defcon May 05 2009

awesome :)
and now for dual monitors :)

Jordan Moore May 05 2009

Hey Mirko,

The third link needs fixed, it’s currently linking to the second one.

Great roundup, I’ve added a few to my wallpaper folder :)

Nice post, thanks! I’ve been looking for some nice wallpapers to grace my desktop, and I chose #1, #7, #12, #29, #40. Also, I picked up a wrong link in #10 ‘Chroma’ at the time of this post, either their site is down, or just that location is down, who knows.

Thanks for the great post! I find myself spending an increasing amount of time on SR, :).

Jacob Gube May 05 2009

@HieuUK: That one’s my favorite as well; I’m using it on my laptop.

@Jordan Moore: That was my fault, not Mirko’s, oops! I fixed it now, sorry for the inconvenience.

@Matt: Wow, great, you picked out a lot! And hey, nothing wrong spending time here at SR! :)

Curvball May 05 2009

Nice collection, Blue Paper Robot is classic.
You can get a few Apple-realted walls (the fireapple collection) over here:

17. This is the Day, 11. N. Design’s wallpapers, 40. Splash, 46. Scanned-Busted

Roberto May 05 2009

Nice. Thanks for sharing. They are all so good, I just don’t know which one to use first. I think it will be homer :)

Kawsar Ali May 05 2009

Nice selections. Angel is the best one here!

Horia Dragomir May 05 2009

great collection! Will definitely take a look at some of these

Callum Chapman May 05 2009

Great collection! I’m now using number 3 ‘Rising Sun’. Thanks!

DarkZeratul May 05 2009

Boy! I was in awe about 15 min after seeing “Love of black sand” (43). It’s sad and beautiful… Numbers 26, 37, 39 and 40 deserve an honorable mention, but they are several stages below Number 43 :)

Kakasab May 05 2009

thank Mirko…. its awsome

Claire Web May 06 2009

My fav has to be the mushroom one. Thank you for these lovely designs :)

Ashely Adams May 06 2009

They are all so beautiful and cover such a wide range of aesthetics that choosing one is very difficult. But here are the ones I particularly liked –

Love of Black Sand
Untitled Wall III
My Bokeh

Honorable mentions – Gears, Desert Dawn.

Thanks for sharing.

Great list… thanks. Love the Homer/OSX one

k4ch0 May 06 2009

Amazing Collection.

Adrian May 06 2009

Wow, I wish i could make these!
My favorites are the first one and “What a Night”.

Jay August May 06 2009

I always feel so uncreative if I pick the first in line of such resources, but I REALLY like the Stabilis wallpaper :)

Jacob Gube May 06 2009

@SneakyRogue: Thanks for dropping by and for creating and sharing Untitled III (the was my favorite name out of the bunch – I end up naming my stuff “untitled” too).

@Jay August: That’s one of my faves too (and why it’s placed up high on the list).

Michelle Chae May 06 2009

Sue L Nov 29 2009

I chose the champignons. I don’t know why I chose that over all the others, really. Maybe it was the appeal to my love of nature, or love of old things. I loved the clean, detailed “inked” drawings of the insects and toadstools. Very nicely done

Tahir Hamid Dec 12 2009

The W.p. at Serial No.03 and 13 are heart-touching.

NIAZ AMIN Dec 12 2009
