"Amidst all else....the time spent will be on memories..."

Hello all you crazy people! Ive made a new wall and kudos to Nuriko for porviding the scan right here : http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/15069/ and yeah i had to re-cg the whole scan, none of this vector crap cos i dont know how to be professional with the pen tool! >_< But nonetheless the whole wall was done with the pattern tool using the real textured scan made into a pattern and applied on the image. I wanted to show a misty type of wall portraying a feeling of lost and regained memories thus showing the almost dead buildings. Lots of works done here with Gaussian blurs, duplicate and experimental layers.

All in all theres about 56 layers and 6 hours of work especially on the bloody image.
I wont yet be showing this in Imanimetions but i will soon put it up on the next update i think o_o
Hope you like it cos its a personal wall for me... ^_^

Personal intent :
Ive always had a big nostalgic hassle with my myself and my own memories, for some reason ive been having dreams that its a part of me and thate imaginary side is saying it will be the death of me for some reason...finding the answer to my question with why does this have to be, should i shut back my bad memories, start a new life for myself or do i ave to make necessary arrangements and make it seem that everything is alright thus hiding the darkest demons that eventually will haunt me an dmake me a mishapened fool? I think the past memories are coming back and i dont want them to burden my life than it already is, maybe i need someone to replace that or someone who can lift me up from my enclosed doors and windows and take me far away...

Maybe its something wrong to say but my life is almost hanging by a .38 calibur gun and a small piece of hope that life will pulll through for me....Blah im so out of here! >_>

    It's just such a cool scene. The characters' poses and the way they're chilling looks excellent. The background just adds to it all :) .

    This wall is great! I know the scan was a hard one to work with, it was printed poorly and I'm a terrible scanner! :D :D I think you conveyed your message clearly and the effort really shows. Good job!

    zomg great~ I love the bright pure colors, and the scan is really nice art

  9. ayaki May 10, 2005

    woo +_+ pretty cool!~
    great job @ repairing the scan @@
    i think the texture looks awesome..it helped create the atmosphere of " feeling of lost "....
    i especially luv what u did to the sky...^^ it matches really well with the scan
    +fav for me ^^

    heeh..everybody has bad memories, and most of us would try very hard to forget about them. But i think these memories will just help a person to become stronger....
    It's better to have memories, then to have none @ all ^^ either if it's bad or good....
    believe in yourself, and in some day, u won't be afraid to look back to those memories....

    ...these thoughts just came to my mind after reading your "personal intent" ;)

  10. rocknroll-isgo May 11, 2005

    O_O Can I please borrow your scan-fixer-upper skills? Just for a little while?

    How do you find the time to keep churning out walls at this rate as a college student???

    Putting my jealousy aside, you did another astounding wall OA. Loving the texture for this and you did well in fixing up that awesome scan. Splendid stuff as expected from you bud :D

  23. Saikusa Retired Moderator May 12, 2005

    That's such a tranquil scene. Despite the urban chaos of reinforced concrete and rusted railings, it's the brightness and rich quality of the colours with that dream-like texture that the water colour (is it?) paint which gives it a serene feeling... Really nice work! :D

  24. DarkEVO May 12, 2005

    <staring in awe and drooling>
