it's a little bit lonely for me
it's a little bit faint without you near
without you near

is it wise to say
while the other's waiting
she's contemplating you
another passes by the door
any other day, you just look around and
all you see is gone
all you see is gone

how can you sit there watching
someone else?
how can you sit there, sit there watching

faint without you near
lonely down here


Markus Schulz Feat. Departure - Without You Near has been my absolute favorite progressive trance tune for the past month, ever since hearing it from Gabriel & Dresden's WMC liveset on Radio 1, and was the main inspiration behind this wall. And if you notice, I've replaced the musical notes from the scan with the lyrics of the song in the fallen sheets of paper.

Anyways, I was just itching to wall this character, as I really liked the perspective and just everything about how she looks so isolated and saddened, which made her a perfect fit for the song. Vectoring her was kind of a pain since the original image's quality wasn't the greatest.

Couldn't get any info on the girl since the scan was deleted from wolfwood89's gallery so hopefully someone else or the mods can so that it can be moved to the right place.

Sorry if anybody was expecting something more flashy with fx and such this time around, was wanting to make something simpler and more tranquil for personal use :|

Oh and please check out the AMG wall that mezzed and I recently collabed on!

    Wow Skillz I love the style!! The vectoring job looks great and the negative space really works well with the image and title. ;) The only little tiny detail I would change is the piece of paper by the girl's left leg... The top right corner is visible through her leg. Love the overall texture too.... great job! XD

    Beautiful wall, Skillzpay. It's put together well... and not so flashy that it can't be on a desktop. Good job on the vector, as well. :)

  3. Ectoruss Jun 01, 2005

    good job. love the texture of the wall. the poem in the music sheet are really great idiea.

  4. kara Jun 01, 2005

    Ehehe, it's really nice to see something different from the typical style. Great vector and I really like how you put the words on the sheets of paper.
    The only thing I don't like are the clouds, they look a bit strange...
    But anyway, really nice job!

    So simple yet the emotion portrayed here is soothing and somewhat having this nostalgic feel to it...I think thi deserves a fave, Love it alot man! :)

  6. ultimaslair Jun 01, 2005

    Wow. Nice vector. That looks like it was hard to do, comparing the original scan. It came out very nice though. I like the simple setting, it has a nice tone and gives a good feel to it. Great job on this wall. Btw...the thing on the far left. Is that a tree?

  7. meteorcloud Jun 01, 2005

    but that...weird thing befor the scan...looks odd...on the left of the wallpaper ^_^"...ow well...
    great job skillzpay =) keep it up !

    The first thing that hit me about this wall is the focus being on the left hand side. I know there are other walls like that, but this one stands out. Nice effects coupled with a good perspective and a nice character. Good work :) .

  9. white-zero Jun 01, 2005

    Hot damn man.

    When you do post a wall, it will be absolutely awesome one. This one is no exception.

    I love the perspective view you've been trying to show and it works out great.

    Awesome job, Skillz. Keep those walls coming!

  10. Electrastar Jun 01, 2005

    I really love the colors you selected for this. Looks like the image is bathed in sunset, on the other hand, it also looks like a old picture. Very nice work and you did a great job on the vector as well. And I'm always impressed with people you created scenery backrounds. So thumbs up for this wallpaper :D

  11. bromithia Retired Moderator Jun 01, 2005

    Wow, this is your best wallpaper, I think so atleast. I love the whole scene you have set up, it all goes together perfectly! Not much to say but good job.

  12. chibikko Jun 01, 2005

    I have the same scan on my pc but a little smaller and from amv.org xD anyway I loved this scene immediately and so I'm glad there's a big resolution made by you. The atmosphere is very calm and nice. The colors you chose are beautiful, so is the sunset. The lyrics are a nice idea, too. Like it very much.

  13. mezzed Jun 01, 2005

    !!! what a great wallpaper!! ah..you've left me speechless... XD dunno what to say..what should i say..OH nice vector!! i love how everything is so clean, great work! job well done! ^_^

    p.s. - man you should've submitted this one + the AMG wall...cuz i was flooded with messages XD *because of all my stupid vectors! XD*

  14. Rella Jun 01, 2005

    Wow, that looks awesome!! The scan looks really nice and the scene is nice too! Good work! ^^

  15. kiri-chan Jun 02, 2005

    I was looking for a nice simple wallpaper and this is just perfect. Amazing image of the girl.

  16. tosirap Jun 02, 2005

    I like how you kept the background relatively simple. The minimal, papery texture neatly complements the style of your scan. The colors work well too.

  17. abe Jun 02, 2005

    kool man i like it and yeah sweet and yeah i agree with everyone ^-^

  18. KorganoS Jun 02, 2005

    The simplicity of this wall is what attracts me the most... not to mention the right selection of color tones, proper texturing, and the bold lines.
    Some things that irks me tho:
    - The tree look, well... too smooth to be a tree,... it should have a rougher texture and contour to make it more realistic
    - The text is not that suitable,... another font style maybe?
    - Your signature on that wallpaper is hardly visible ^_^' lol... isn't that much of a problem for the viewers, but I think it would be more visible (yet still suitable) if you use a low-opacity white color instead of pure black
    Anyways.... I really like the composition... really matches with the title 'Without you near'. and the papers addition is ingenious....
    Great job, ol' man ;)

    Wowies! First off, awesome vectoring! It looks fantastic! I love the colours and the background! It looks really good with the girl character! The prospective is really well put together and I like the texture! It's simple but a very beautiful wallpaper! Awesome work!

  20. Tatsumi09 Jun 05, 2005

    Wow. I absolutely love this wallpaper. The yellow background, the dead tree, the girl with the guitar, her scarf partly lying on the guitar, the sun rising, the wind blowing, leaves and papers flying and the grass moving. The atmosphere is just perfect!

    The work you did on the scan was really good too. The quality was improved by a lot, it almost seems that the scan was just a plan or sketch of the real one you used in the wallpaper. I also find it interesting that you changed the sheet music to the lyrics of Markus Schulz Feat. Departure - Without You Near. (Never heard it, but will hear it soon ^^)

  21. flyindreams Jul 30, 2005

    Nice! It definitely stood out for me, out of all the other walls in your gallery ^.^ I love the warm yellow and brown tones, and it looks fantastic on my desktop. I think the font could use some lines or faint background design to support it, but that's really just me nit-picking. *nya* Anyways! Off to nominate this wall for Simple-ism's featured gallery *^.^*

  22. HisDivineShadow Aug 01, 2005

    With a few minor changes to the girl it could be Haruka a la flcl. Her lonely, isolated look fits quite well with the expansive field and deadish tree.

  23. bluSake Retired Moderator Aug 06, 2005

    Nice: the textures, the composition, everything. Think the background really captures the character's mood: I can hear music when I look at it.

    Great wall !

    I don't know if anyone noticed this, but your guitar is wrong.

    those little knobs on the guitar... are to tune... if the knobs aren't connected to the strings... there's nothing to tune. So if you can find a way to correct it or whatever, that'd be cool.... other than that, looks great !
