Hexagonal Grid Wallpaper v0.1 by adoomer Hexagonal Grid Wallpaper v0.1 by adoomer
This wallpaper was inspired by a grid pattern on the CLU's gloves in "Tron: Legacy". For now it's quite simple, as I had focused on practicing tiling in Inkscape. "Create Tiled Clones", although at first glance somewhat obscure, is an extremely powerful tool.

I think about making another version of this work, as I would like to enliven it a bit with color, yet preserving the still composition (I don't like being distracted by a too flashy wallpaper). Suggestions are appreciated.

Resolutions included:
- 33601050 px (dual screen 16:10)
- 19201200 px (16:10)
- 19201080 px (16:9)
- 16001200 px (4:3)
- 1280800 px (16:10)
- 1366768 px (16:9)
- 1024768 px (4:3)

EDIT: I added requested resolutions - high res wide-screen and dual screen. The list above is already updated. I've made also a version without gradient mask, but only 1400900 px.

EDIT2: If you would like to support me, you can buy this wallpaper on your mobile device - look here. Unfortunately, mycontent.pl is in Polish only - please tell me if you know a similar portal in other language, I'd be very happy to submit my works. Not available any more.

EDIT3: See also a logon panel which includes this background: "Necromonger-W7-Logon" by Your-Numbr1-Fan. Good work, Jimmy!

Created in Inkscape.
Tools: polygon tool, tiled clones and gradient.

Nice design, when did you make this? I got the same one...?! Made mine in 1998.

Wow, what a similarity... Well, when the design is based on a simple, geometric concept, parallel creation is bound to happen sooner or later. Still, the differences are amazingly slim (eg. the number of inner hexagons, lit borders, more complex shading). I made mine in 2011. I thought about simulating a light source behind the scene, as you did in your design, but couldn't make a pleasing effect in Inkscape at that time.

I really like the pic, using as a cover for my DJ name after I edit it a little bit of course.
I'm not sure how to give you credit, so I linked to this page.

Beautiful, I use this on all my screens.  It's cool but subtle. Doesn't distract from my work  and my icons dont get lost in the BG pattern.

Love it. Feeds my love of tech *and* hexagons at the same time.

I'll be using this for my website's background (with due credit of course).

You mention wanting to add a little colour, have you considered a glow between the hexagons? Something as if it contains an energy source? A little like you might get a glow hinting lava through cracks in rock. A cool blue or deep orange would seem suitable.

Yes, that's exactly what I thought about, even the colours (blue and orange)!

Can I get a version of this without the overwhelming darkness overpowering the pic? ;)

adoomer Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Huh, I thought the darkness makes this wallpaper better... Do you mean a version with a more subtle fade to black or without gradient mask at all? Because in my opinion the second option looks very flat and dull.

I like the mechanical on my desktop. so yeah no gradient mask, if thats not too much trouble. :) I rock a mac with a 1400x900 desktop so I tend to find mechanical like desktops and such to put on there. And I really like this design. :)
