When the end is near like there wasnt a tommorow...
will you save me?!
When my tears turn to blood and bones to ashes...
will you comfort me?!
When the skies, clouds and rain turn into black night...
will you guide me to the gates?!
When sorrowful angels come to take thee...
will you let them forsake me?!
When I reap destruction to those who sever...
will you stop me?!
But when the balance of judgement is upon me
what then will you do?

For some reason i found this scan in MT from DREAM http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/138504/ made by Shou Tajima and for some reason I loved it because it is almost similar with my drawed character of the elusive "OracleAngel" and yeah i wanted to depict a selfish but sorrowful side of myself here. Extracted parts of the scan so i could put a dark aura od a rainy sky, added some rain, mixed and matched colors up together and tried my best to darken and lighten parts of th ewal so it could balance all out in the end. Adeed some small details on th elil angel eyes, blood stains on the wings and edited parts of his face. Lots of layers and experimentals here, nothing to fancy but nevertheless i might edit this somehow in the end.... 54 layers and 4 hours of work.

Anywho hope you like this and maybe ill put this on Imanimetions after the first updates are finished cos WE HAVE A NEW LAYEOUT!!!!!
check it out kids! XD

Personal intent:
Ive always had that burdened emotion of self hate within me, i never wanted it there in the first place and didnt care so much that through th eyears that have passed by ive become selfish in a sence, being such a wall builder when life starts talking back at me. Made my whole perceptions and state of mind my prison i cannot escape. Sooner or later if i dont adapt or evolve to a higher state of being , this so called emotion will gobble me up and make me the product of my own destruction.... >_> but from the ashes of my despair there is always the hint of sorrow which will prevail...out of the anger, depression and my own sadness to everyone and everything around me. Who gives a damn right?!!! im just 0.1% of people in this world whos mind is just too cluttered with questions with answers that are in front of my face but cant seem to sort it all out. My balance of judgement lies between my depression state and self hateful state...no happiness here.

I still have a long way to find myself.

  14. Yina Jul 05, 2005

    nyaa.. it looks kinda simple to me, cuz you "only" added the clouds and changed the colour of the scan.. but I think it only looks simple, as you said you spent 4 hours on the wallie.
    the sky fits pretty well to the scan.. also like the font sou used.

    I think this is my favorite submission of yours, OA. Not because of it's graphic work, per say, but more because of the emotional output you put into it... whether it be intentional or not. I just find that the wallpaper and your personal intent today to say the same thing. A lone, saddened man trudges through life, eyes trained on his surroundings as if searching for something worthwhile... but most likely for something far more important; like his missing fragments. There's a heavy burden on his shoulders: a cross, his alleviation, riddles with nails of hate... put there by himself. Eyes, seemingly just as bitter and dejected as his own, watch from the encompassing destruction a good distance away, never close enough to offer any comfort. But they don't mirror the same self-awareness... because those detached eyes, that destruction, is not real. They don't carry the knowledge that he is alive and that despair is in his head.

    Yet, he will continue to walk, searching... for someone, himself or another? Time has yet to tell.

    Love Sho-u Tajima's works very much. They have done the art for Galerians and have done the art for Madara. I have seen the pic for her/his Shou Tajima Pin-up Collections 2002-2004 - BABY stardust. You have done a great job with the editing the scan and adding color details, and text to it. Awesome job and good taste. :)

    I like the pic you used for the wall, its a bit yellow, but like the bg, is really different of other walls. Like it. :D
