What is a live wallpaper?
A live wallpaper is wallpaper for mobile devices that is animated or interactive in some way. Most Nightscape Creations live wallpapers are fully rendered looping movie clips allowing you to enjoy ocean waves rolling under you, fog or mist roiling through a forest, or sunshafts streaming through the trees.

These animations will run at a full 30 frames-per-second on most modern devices, and support phones back to Android 2.x. Our live wallpapers are also designed to deactivate when hidden, so they will not drain your battery or slow your other applications when not visible.



Available live wallpapers
Orion Keys

Kick back, relax, and watch the ocean waves slowly roll by you. In the distance the vibrant sunset plays off the twin moons on this quiet summer's eve. Free Version Full Version Products




Source Code
The code used to create my live wallpaper was based off of an open source project accessible here. As part of the license I'm making my modifications available as well. If you'd like to create your own video live wallpaper, download the zip file here and follow the included instructions.

Warning: Android / Java development experience required. Must download and install the ndk too.

Second Warning: Sorry for the messy code...

About the software...
All of my images were done using Bryce (version 5.0 until 2008 and then 6.1) up until 2009 or so. Newer images and animations have been rendered with various versions of E-on's Vue. Most of my humans and animals come from Poser. Of course, no image or animation is ever left untouched by Photoshop.


"Can I use your images for blah blah blah..."
All of my images and animations are subject to international intellectual copyright law. I grant visitors to this site the right to download my images for use as desktop backgrounds. If you wish to distribute my images or use them in any way commercially, please contact me about leasing non-exclusive rights to an image.

Rights are not always expensive. Whatever your desired use for an image might be, I'm sure we can work out some kind of agreement, whether you want to use something as a CD cover, a banner ad, a site theme, or whatever.


About the artist...
Like many others, I began my foray into desktop wallpapers with an image from Digital Blasphemy. I had spent my youth buried in video games, fantasy novels, and sci-fi shows. I loved the ideas presented, but in those days special effects could hardly do them justice. As a child I longed to be able to see a realistic reproduction of a dragon or deep space anomaly with my own eyes.

One day, around the age of 20, I came across a tutorial posted on DB about how one of my favorite images was created. I got myself a copy of Bryce shortly thereafter to give it a try, and created my first few images shortly thereafter. Despite my penchant for fantasy scenes, I began with mostly landscapes. The sky editor in Bryce provided so much power over the mood and feel of a scene, and I was often reminded of the sunsets I watched with my mother when I was a child. Nightscape Creations was born after my very first image as I dove headlong into the hobby.

Nightscape Creations went through several phases. Like many artists at the time I attempted to create paid galleries like DB had, but met with limited success. In the end I fell back on provided my work for free so more people could enjoy it, and tried to make a small amount of money from ads. Unfortunately, the site has never paid for its own upkeep.

In my mid-20s I took a break from Nightscape Creations, and most of my other hobbies, due to a divorce. I tried to get back to it once or twice in the following years, as you can see from the few images posted in the late 2000s, but it never seemed to stick. While I still enjoyed it I had a lot of other responsibilities weighing heavily upon me, and due to some other issues it just never felt as easy or natural as it once did. With so few people seeing my work, and my inability to get new images out fast enough to keep interest, it was hard to justify the effort at all.

In 2013 I was finally able to afford my first smartphone (don't laugh!), and I discovered live wallpapers. I had dabbled in these almost a decade earlier in Windows, but the desktop implementation was clunky and the selling process difficult. Now I could create wondrous animations, not just images, and share them with thousands without all the hours and dollars of advertising it once took. Further, I could post versions with extra features and easily earn a little extra money for a family trip to the beach, a little extra security, and some updated rendering tools. I began with an old image that was always a favorite: Orion Keys.

With its success I'm looking forward to continue creating new wallpapers, hopefully with day/night cycles and more interactive features as time goes on.

What is a static wallpaper?
A static wallpaper is a simple background image that can be used on any devices as a background. They are called "static" here to differentiate them from live wallpapers.

I actually wasn't expecting this to be too good, but it ended up being one of my favorites of all time. The sky coloring really works with the dragon's skin textures.

This was my first render with Poser 4.0. The interesting thing when you're doing people is that you create them first as jus...

This was my very first 3D render. In my opinion, it came out better than some of the following ones. Didn't have any particular inspiration for this one, things just kind of came together.

Midnight Maneuvers

Really more of a test bed for some new techniques, I watned to try building a really big ship with a lot of intricate detail. This one only got part of the way, and since it was my first it's a little bland, but I was told it still looked decent so I thought I'd put it up.

This is my first all-photoshop image. I actually had no plan to create it. I was testing out some new nebula techniques. Then, when playing with ways to combine multiple nebuli in the same image, I started to like it. I played around a bit, added a planet and sun, and came up with this. The n...

I just started really playing with 3DS seriously. I needed to do some ship models for a new game I'm coming out with, and this model came out beautifully (in my opinion). So, I decided to go ahead and do an image with it. It really seemed very alien and organic to me, so I tried to place it in a ...

This is the second (and, in my opinion, better) version of imminent collision. Yeah, I realize that the planet is a little cloudy…maybe they just have bad weather ;).

I had a few ideas on where to go with this at first. Originally, the asteroid was going to be leaving a trail to imply motion, but it just seemed to look a lot better without one. I did a second version with the planet close that will be going up soon, but I liked this one as it was truer to my or...

This is my first attempt at building a space fighter from scratch (just cubes, spheres, pyramids, and cones) It could probably use a little smoothing but, who knows, maybe it'd really be more economical to build one like this. Considering this is my first one, I'm pretty happy with it. I plan to...

Salohcin is a name I used for a Country that I created for Dungeon's and Dragons. I thought it might be neat to try and render a space scene, to get the bigger picture.

I don't like how the textures came out on the lady of the lake exactly; I was hoping to match the lake surface better. But overall I'm happy with this one. I needed a way to make the sword look 'out-of-the-ordinary', so I added the flames. What do you think?

Halloween 2003

Once again, Halloween is the only holiday of the year that I managed to get a theme image up for. Though I do plan to try for a Christmas one this year. I think this is a definite improvement over last year's Halloween image. Enjoy!

With Halloween approaching, I thought everyone might enjoy something in theme for their desktop. I couldn't give this quite the time and attention that it deserved as the 31st is quickly approaching, but I think it came out well anyway.

I just got the urge to create this one one day, came out of no where. Everything came together so naturally, I hardly remember working on it at all. I think this is about my most realistic image to date, though there's a few things I wish I could have done more (just didn't have the skill). A ni...
