I am Goldfinger
That is, I am Goldfinger when I work with graphic design.
This design is one in a series of wallpapers I made for personal use.
I used the same techniques as I did when making the "In Gold We Trust" design, where I wanted to illustrate how powerful a realistic effect can be to emphasize a message.
Once again, it is the attention to the small details that makes for a realistic looking result.
I am still very pleased with the design, and I used it as a desktop wallpaper for many years.
