    The skeleton is actually from Ashley Wood's "Blood&Salvation". AW is probably the best artist around IMHO... after me! lol.. NOT!

    I like the skeleton. It keeps the sex anonymous. What I noticed and really liked about it was the glowing heart. I think it's very fitting. Practically the greatest cover art Opeth have ever put out and this image with a shining heart.

    Sweet! Awesome work, man.

    Now that you explain what everything symbolizes it makes sense to me, I really like that now!

    This one looked a lot like Tool's artwork...just replace the Opeth-logo with Tool and you have a Tool-wp :) Nice work...

    The orignial plan was to make a wallpaper with my avatar artwork (according to people demands) but the problem is that the dimensions of the artwork is too small to be putted into a wallpaper. The program that I used is Adobe Photoshop.
    Glad you like it!

    Again, thanks for all the great comments :)

    hehe thanks for the kind word...well seriously I'm far from the next Travis Smith, I'm just a photoshop freak who enjoys good music and get greatly inspired by that...much like you I guess :)

    By the way, you're an incredibly talented digital artist...and honestly, you should show to the fans how incredibly beautiful your signature banners are...maybe making an Opeth one would be awesome :D. Folks I tell you, Alcapoth is THE mesmerizing banner master!

    :rolleyes: ...I don't know what to say....it's nothing special, but, I'm happy you think so changso. You DO know that the sigs YOU do are brilliant as well...:D I mean, that goes without saying....

    Anyway, let's put it this way....hehehe....we inspire one another.

    And, actually....I've been meaning to create an Opeth sig for quite some time now (need to find the right stuff!). :D Heh...we should both take a shot at it....

    You're so right, my Seymour banner is a little bit "odd" in an Opeth forum don't you think :lol:

    I agree with you, finding the right stuff for an Opeth's artwork is not an easing think...but I'll find that's for sure :)

    I assume that Adobe Photoshop is at least as good as Paint Shop Pro, if not better. If so, is there a reason you can't resize the image to, say.... 800X600 then use some smoothing effects to get rid of the pixelation. Or is the original image just TOO small?

    'Cos your avatar in my opinion is absoulutely wicked!.... better that Travis Smith's 'Still Life' IMHO.

    the original is about 500X700 px. In order to Make a 800X600 wallpaper, I would have to resize the image and crop into a selection and it would be pixelate...which I can't stand. I could use some blur but the overall image would be too "foggy" and lose its sharpness value. Also, 800X600 is a little low for the standard resolution nowaday.

    By the way, Adobe Photoshop is far better than Paint Shop Pro...no comparison. If you're using PSP, grab Photoshop as fast as you can, you won't regret it

    Hope it helps...
