Bored and curious, what kinds do you like and have at the moment?

For me I prefer ones with epic scenery, and no not the ol sunny beach or mountainside ones, too cliche for my taste.

I also like something going on in the wallpaper, for example. I dont plaster a picture of cloud strife onto my bg no, I would prefer one of him where in Advent children he is standing on that cliffside looking over the ruins of midgar while placing Zack's sword into the ground. A very epic scene right there, sadly the picture I obtained is farrrr too blurry so had to opt for another one.

Another good one is a very old picture I found years ago of a skeletel dragon flying through the wintery mountains roaring.

Dunno why but wallpapers of just the characters from shows or games I like by themselves with a few fancy words and funky bgs behind them dont appeal to me.

I also have admiration for cathedral screenshots from games (Chaos Legion being a epic example) or animes. And I love wallpapers that have a 3D ish effect to a scenery shot, I found this one screenshot from Castlevania LoI of a first person point of view from a room in the game. It looks like you are in it it's that detailed. -reminds self to toss up a link of the pic later-

But for now I have an old school shot of Vincent Valentine perching on a rooftop of some unknown city as the wind whips through his cape while lightning is flashing off in the distance in four different places and the skies have a purple-ish effect to them. Very awsome looking scene besides the Red XIII wallpaper, reminds me of the poem "Alone" by Edgar Allen Poe for some reason.

Figures lol

And of course when no other pic is to my liking, I toss up the fiery scene of Sephiroth from FF7 AC xD
I found one of him though where it shows him walking through a cathedral that someone photoshopped. Thought it was a 3D fanart at first until I got a better look at Seph.

Eh. I only change this thing a few times a year. It's not like you spend a lot of time just staring at your desktop.

That wallpaper is EPIC. D; Was it drawn by someone on DA?

My wallpaper as of the moment: http://img682.imageshack.us/img682/6439/childrenssurfing710.jpg

I adore simple coloring. Wallpapers that are too detailed can be hard on the eyes, and it's kind of hard to see my folders. I also use the occasional fish and aquarium wallpaper. Anime wallpapers have gotten old you know? ;/

If he has a deviantart account, I don't know about it. That picture was drawn by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marko_Djurdjevi%C4%87 <--this guy, who is basically God. It's the cover for issue #100 of volume 2 of Daredevil.

I have the planet express ship logo. I have never ever found a background that I like as much as this.

Nobody's going to have what I'm comfortable with for very long, so I just make my own...
