Ender’s Game Wallpapers

Okay folks, it was time for me to get a new desktop wallpaper and the only way I could delegate the creation of said wallpapers was to offer them up to everyone. So, thanks to our great assistant, Adam, for doing the leg work on these fantastic Ender’s Game ebook cover wallpapers, as created by Sam Weber. They’re available to registered users in two versions—count ’em two—styles! For a behind-the-scenes look at Sam’s cover process, check this post: Ender’s Game ebook cover. (Man, he captured the perfect expression on that kid.)

Looks great. May we please, please, please have wallpapers made from the Wheel of Time ebook covers?

Beautiful. And you're right; that is a perfect expression for Ender.

What, no specific size/aspect ratio for android phones? What a gyp!

I kid, I kid. Love this image. Now we just need an Ender's Game movie to pull screen-grabs from.

This is a great cover. And I second Majicou's request.

We've done wallpapers of a couple of the WoT books. I can probably get wallpaper rights to a few others -- any favorites I should go after?

The 2048x1536 cropped link goes to the same file as the 2560x1600 cropped.

Ditto on the Wheel of Time ebook art as wallpapers! It would be FANTASTIC if every one was made into a wallpaper, not to mention it would be heaven for us WoT fans. A dozen HQ images specifically for the series? They could be stared at all day, not just because of the sheer awesomeness of the art but also the symbols hidden in them.

@Irene I only know about Kekai Kotaki's tGS wallpaper, are you telling me there are others? My vote is for Crossroads of Twilight.

I was going to complain about already having too many wallpapers in my rotation already, but the prospect of even more just made me excited.

By the way, the links for the Shaun Tan hoverboard over there got broken.

About the 1920x1200 wallpaper of the full image, the file name is correct yet the effective size is 2048x1536, the same as the above file. Best, MM

When I click on a link, all I get is a file named "5422.html".

Fantastic painting. Also makes a great wallpaper. Although.... I wonder if it would be possible to get one where the head is not cut off at the top? Just with as much of the background remaining above Ender. Also no cut offs at the bottom. That would be very much appreciated! :) keep it up!
