Drive Mastery 1 by JesseLax Drive Mastery 1 by JesseLax

THIS IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR USE OF ANY KIND



Update: July, 2013
Because excessive theft and sale of my work has continued, MY WALLPAPERS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR USE OF ANY KIND.
You are seeing this wallpaper because I was forced to remove it from storage in order to accomplish website removal via DMCA letters.




Update: Jan. 11, 2013
Due to the outrageous amount of theft, misuse, and violations
against my copyright and Creative Commons license, I've put
the Drive Mastery wallpaper packs that were freely available
into storage.

It is extremely unlikely that I will ever make them available
again.

I'm wholeheartedly disappointed in how many within the
public can show such a huge amount of disrespect to me, my
art, and the very few requirements I have on it.

I will no longer be giving permissions for the use of this piece
under any circumstances outside of personal use.

:bulletgreen: You may use this for your personal PC or Laptop Wallpaper,
Nothing else.

:bulletblue: If you're representing a business entity, please see
my journal for my Agent's contact.

If I find that you are hosting this wallpaper on your website
with any kind of modifications that have not been approved
by me, I will not only attempt to have your website suspended
but I will also alert my attorney (Yes, I've had to get one just
because of this wallpaper) and prosecute you to the fullest
extent of the law.

My apologies for firm hand, but people's disrespect for my work
has reached an all time high and I'm done pussy footing
around about it.

I can't even remove this wallpaper because it's now the only
proof I have that I'm the original author outside of the PSD...
leaving me stuck in this very vicious circle.

Thanks to all the inconsiderate people out there who've taken
away any love I have for sharing my work online. You're really
ace, and I hope I nail every single one of you.

I know my rights. Do you know yours?

Hey ~kreativ-kid! Thank you very much for your inquiry, I'm grateful you took the time to write.

Usually I take these sort of requests privately (notes or email), but I'm happy to answer you anyway.

I would very much appreciate if you did not use my work for your website. I receive many inquiries such as yours and have had to deny them all. Basically it's protection for future clients and possible sales. If I was to give you or anyone else permission to use this work publicly, and then in the future if I'm ever to sell this piece of art to a company or private party, everything would become very complicated. This is simply because it wouldn't be mine anymore... and I'd hate to have left you liable should the future owner of the art see the work on your site and choose to take legal action. Hope that makes sense. ;)

If you're looking for a banner for your site though, I do take commissions and I'm not terribly expensive. Email me (address is in my signature) if you're interested and perhaps we can work something out, k?

Thanks,
-Jesse (AHiL)

So far DMIntercepting is my fav.
My intention is to not come off as an ass but what is the difference between DMIntercepting and DMBlue?

(At least you know that I download your works) :D

JesseLax Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
No, you don't come off as an ass at all! You've been a good, solid supporter, a respectable peer, and a great acquaintance. When i meet people like that, I don't judge their words, I listen very carefully. So it's all good. ;)

I graded the Drive Mastery's colors on the brightest parts of the Binary Code and the triple stripes on the "drive" itself. Barring the Outer-Glow, the rest of the colors in the background I let fall to whatever was natural to them as I changed these more integral parts. Taking that into consideration, there's still not a remarkable difference:

"DMBlue" is the standard re-color. The Code and Stripes are a slightly different blue color (#6dd8fc), having just a touch more green. The Black areas remain the same shade as all the rest of the normally named recolors (#0b0b0b, as the largest dark shade).

"DMIntercepting", aside from the slight color difference (#6ccdfa), has also had it's black and mid-tone values adjusted to be even darker (#000000, as the largest dark shade, respectively). I did this in proportion to ^mrrste's "Interceptor GUIKit", so that it would fit better when themed together, hence the name----and ultimately because Black and blue are perhaps the most well received (however overused) combinations for desktop themes.


Hope that helps, my friend!! And please never feel bashful about asking questions, not matter how small they may seem. I love discussing art in any respect, no matter how minute.
