Five Sci-Fi & Fantasy Wallpapers

I love customizing my desktop background. I have a folder on my computer dedicated to cool wallpapers. Some of my favorites have to be sci-fi, fantasy, or abstract themed. Here’s some of the awesome ones I’ve found this weekend. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so maybe one of these will inspire a new short story, poem, or novel! Click on the pics to be taken to where you can download the full-sized versions.

sun outer space explosion wallpaper

I like this one’s yellow color palette. Plus explosions in space are cool. Ask anyone.

outer space planets wallpaper

Another space-y planet-y type wallpaper. A nice blue contrast to the yellow one up above.

outer space stars planets wallpaper

This one’s called “Rusted” and I think it fits perfectly. So there you have it: space wallpapers based roughly on the primary colors. Now onto a couple of fantasy desktop backgrounds.

fantasy woman warrior with spear wallpaper

I like this one because she’s a fantasy female warrior of some kind, but she’s wearing sensible armor, not a chainmail bikini.

fantasy art landscape wallpaper

This one caught my eye because it could be interpreted as either fantasy or sci-fi. Either way, it’s cool looking.
