Artist Comment

Ego carries a completely different connotation in English than it once did, but the original Latin definition is the pronoun for "I"...

Well. After my Murata wallpaper, I really didn't know what I wanted to wall next. Actually, I didn't really feel like walling for a while. However... going through the Amano scans I'd downloaded from the gallery here, I came across one of my favorites... I guess that sort of inspired me to go ahead and make this one. Largely the inspiration for how I handled this wallpaper was provided by my brother's Amano wallpapers, where he took multiple scans and blended them together. I'm afraid I may not have done as good a job with that as he has, though I hope that he'll find it satisfactory... XP

Eh, I'll steal his wallet if he doesn't, hehe. :D

I don't really know what else I can say about this wallpaper. I used a lot of layer blending and quite a few filters... I originally wanted to put a quotation on this one, like I have on so many of my others, but I couldn't really find anything that spoke to me in regards to the theme I have here. I'm not going to go out and ruin it for the analytical people by telling you exactly what I intended here, but I'll let you know that this one feels much more personal to me than many of my others. Anyways, I guess that's about it. Oh, and thank yous to DREAM and markjo for their Amano scan galleries, again, I couldn't have done it without you guys.

    The style is pretty strange and doesn't really sit well with me, but I do appreciate the effects used. Well done.

    hmm. this is a most interesting wall...
    i need to "think" about this one before commenting........

    It's interesting, not really my type of wallpaper though. It's so highly saturated, so you might want to cut down on that. The art is nice, I dont really think the filter you used on the characters though, it seems like they are too unclear, I think. Though, the colors are nice.

    Keep up the good work Makhan :)

    interesting work.
    when view under the fullview, details of the effects etc, started to show.
    It's really birght and dark in some part.
    Lot sof contrast works >.<
    To me it looks like an expressive potrayal of some events :\
    overall unique work.

    I see you are putting a lot of psychology in your wallie, the attention to detail is very good, and the color really relfects the theme you tried to convey, I see you are one of the more interesting wallers around in mt, your wallie is very expressive to the unconscious mind. :) good job.

    the style is pretty weird.. and maybe a bit overly saturated at parts
    the effect on the left is actually quite nice to me.. those like polygonal differently coloured spots.. whatever you call that :x
    i am not really too sure how to comment on it but it gives me a bit of some weird feeling..

    not that bad a job but I guess you seem unclear when you're making it..

    ah the "Ego" that which we all struggle with at one time or another.. Although our personal viewpoint is highly subjective we can at times be our own worst enemy. And what's worse then being a prisoner of your own mind?

    i really like as Mordin mentioned how you incoporate meaning into your walls.
    unlike a few others i feel the saturation is fine..

    i would have gone a little easier on the filter effects though- just a tad less around the lady..

    still this wall is incredible. Your 2nd best work- imo
