"Where am i now....?? Its been like yesterday since i left home..."
~ Dedicated to Tama-Neko ~

BOP! Hey People its me again and from the news you have heard i was made one of the esteemed Gallery directors of MT and i woke up this morning and said im going to make this wall....Kudos for Tama-neko for the Lovely scan of Kino! At first i didnt know what to make, tried making a scenic wall but that didnt turn out great and a lighty grunge mix but it didnt fit at all so i searched for some pictures of italy and found some of them and decisded to make a Nostalgic/Journey/grunge typed wally. Lots of new brushes and whatnot put into here and lots of gaussian, duplication and experimetation layers here and there.

Dont make so much a fuss with the green patches on Kino thats what makes her stand out and be dynamic among all the rest of the background so just giving you a heads up!

And all in all theres like 66 layers and 3 1/2 hours of work put into this...
Hope you like it! ^_____^*

More resolutions coming up in Imanimetions so check it out soon...! XD

Personal intent:
Really i just wanted to express my attachment to existance and that my life is too complex for me to even understand because for some reason im starting to doubt my existance as a person. Is it wrong to hate ones own destiny, fate or time spent in this life? Ive always wanted to know if there were people who feel de-attached from the world, like they dont belong where they should be but as if they were needed for some higher purpose. All my life ive always wanted to be like people in general but for me i myself have become a hermit of sorts, observing the people i love, care, less like and care less about......and im starting to HATE it, oh yes go out and do something about it! get more attention why dont ya! No thats not me, i get attention when i make it so and not by some spontaneous action that comes out somewhat randomly but i do it by heart.

People should go out and journey around the world...Heck ive been places like Singapore, United Arab Emirates, England, Phillipines and now im in Canada...so many places to go but its just financially that i have trouble doing so. Just get off your butt once in a while and walk dammit! dont waste away in your box but live out of it and make something of it! My journey extends even after death has rid my flesh away but my unconcious is all moving.....May my dreams, aspirations, wishes and loves of my life reach back to me cos now i dont belong anywhere...how i long for an embrace through the hardship and challenges of life. May i find the thing i am looking for.....

    This is good but I'm not a fan of the overlaying of the pictures. I can barely make them out; Is that what you've wanted?
