You and I have much in common since I remember 'Sporty before Offensive Security launched BackTrack and I've tried using BackTrack and your artwork is literally the only reliable component of BackTrack Linux.
I am in humble gratitude of the DeviantArt community especially your perseverance since I recall your courage on their hosted forums in face of endless onslaught of kiddie, miscreant and the rest of the undeserved vagaries thrown at you by strafers and dorkers all the while I remained inspired encouraged by YOUR UNWILLINGNESS TO ABANDON THE THREAD AND YOUR INSISTENCE ON BEING CREDITED for Sporty while they incorporated into their distinctive logo. Their actions were nothing less than theft.
It angers me they've stolen your work, aside from the brazen theft of it, their work product is quite substandard and BackTrack serves more as stuffed up business card that is more a collection of poorly organized open source marquis security tools with glorious names but lacking organized development or refinement.
Their OS is just an overglorified piece of shit that attracts adolescents trying to hack their neighbors WiFi or miscreant pedo's trying to conceal their kiddie porn.
Nice wallpaper, I used it for some time long ago. I see that the backtrack issue is still around. I just happen to search deviantART looking for your original image, it is sad to see how many times I find backtracks name attached to it.
I searched for backtrack in deviantART and left this message with quite a few images. - - - - - - - "Original dragon art from dragonkahn
I doubt you created this. [link] [link] you shouldn't plagiarize extremely reputable computer security experts. LOL you might make them mad and I wouldn't tempt that fate. You should send us the link you downloaded your template from I sent you the links of the templates that I've created deviations of this wallpaper.
Has it ever occurred to you that they plagiarized ME??? They may be reputable in computer security software, doesn't mean they're reputable in design. My artwork (released July 20 2002) predates all the software they've released (version 1 released in 2006). You just couldn't give me a benefit of a doubt, could you?
I've seen this picture around for years, and only just found out who created it. I once used the dragon in that image and put it on a different background, do you mind if i upload the image to my account? (I would give you credit for the dragon design) I reckon this is one of the most awesome images on the internet. +1
omg. you have no idea how long I've been wanting to know who made this friggin' awesome wallpaper. it keeps getting circulated without credit that I really thought I'd never know but now I do. So yay! XD thanks for sharing!
**sorry, I have thing for knowing and it irritates me not to. know, I mean.
i found a version of this on the web and couldnt find who started it, but just 2 days ago took it to my tattoo artist and had it done with his own twist to it, id like to give a picture of it to who ever started it if you would help me out, and I love this by the way
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. my boyfriend put this as the wallpaper on my computer. But it was the colored one. My computer recently died so I lost everything...including that wallpaper. And I want it back. I'm so glad I found this.
