I dont wanna change the world
I only wanna stop pretending
What she said come again?
What she said Come again now?
Nothing to do but let it burn
I only hope were ascending.....high

Dedicated to Tama-Neko.

OK after so many gruesome hours of fixing my crap up i finally made a wall i actually love to death but not like an obseesion! I was searching around Tama's gallery and found another Kino image to wall and i copied the window bracket from the original scan. I loved her expression on this wall because it reminds me of me when i was in class for the first time in front of many..."Shy and miserable" hence the title "Dogday Afternoon" >___<, had the hardest time making the whole scan fit with the school classroom bg itself, at first it was fully dark grunge but deleted it and decided to lighten it up a bit to make it seem more peaceful and tranquil. Added some few and simple things like that blackboard, chalk writings, eraser, that small white sheet with "Runic" writings (Not Kanji) meaning peace. Added some dark areas, a mountainous bg outside the window...overlayed it with textures and there you go! A great wall of loveliness! XD

Umm a lot of experimentation in this wall, so theres 7 layers and combined hours of 6 hours of workage baby yeah! (0_____0)

More resolutions coming soon in Imanimetions so check it out next update!

Personal intent:
After hearing the latest Cd i bought from K-os (Joyful revolution) the whole set of songs gave me a certain small meaning of life and what i was suppose to look for when im in it....not saying what it is but together it would spell out one thing " Evolve", not saying you should but at least i know that he is one of millions who are like these and is my newest inspiration in life now. Ive always had a deep thinking mind, analyzing, theorizing and fantacizing everything and everyone aroudn me that i have created a world i can change and form al together but in reality i myself am stil stagnant to the world i live in, lazy and iurresponsible because to me life seems useless for a person like me but God has put everyone on this green earth for a purpose and i guess i have to find my own purpose in life.
"Ive tried, I couldnt find it...
I just wanna get back to me, oh baby
Back into the man i used to be..."

    Love at first sight <3 I love the scan and how it blends into the clean background. And the texture makes it look nicely as well. Umm I end up saying the same on every wallpaper, so~ love it + fav.

    Ahhh great wallpaper, I love the girl and I also like the classroom, this is actually the first wall that resembles(and that is) a classroom, everything looks so good :) Congrads you did an amazing job, I really like it!

  4. DarkIngram Jul 26, 2005

  5. Dufoe88 Jul 26, 2005

    0_0 runic writting >.> i almost thought those are kanji scribles >.> at first.
    I think u did a nice jo on integrating the bg and the scan, my only comment would be the flatness is some area , such window, giving a depth will gives more sense or realism.
    Nonetheless awesome work.
    ^_^ thanks for sharing >.<

  8. fukushuusha Jul 26, 2005

    finally man...I thought u are not going to submit anything till next week XD
    Lovely chara! haha...really cute face she has here. The bg quality is excellent as always. The feeling of a paper is nicely done. There is a slight grungy feeling in this which makes it more exciting. The colors are well chosen..again...:)
    man u amaze me everytime. Great job as always Oracle... ;)

  9. Sunira Jul 26, 2005

    This is really quite lovely. Im totally in love with the chalkboard and all that you've done with it. ;)

  10. Electrastar Jul 26, 2005

    What...Kino's a girl!!!!!
    Didn't know that...Anyway, love the backround on this one, and the funny little elements you added in the chalkboard, nicely done :D

  11. fclubproject Jul 26, 2005

    very awesome, your variety in walls never ceases to amaze me.

    the mood in this wall is perfect with your intent

    *giggles* Who's the Steve Guttenberg fan? ;)

    The picture's nice, and the colours calming, but what I love most is the texture. It's like a lithograph. As if I could print it off and frame it for my bedroom wall ~ silly, huh? But I really do like that look to it :)

  13. AC2N Jul 26, 2005

    As usual... it's an amaaaaaaazing wall.
    I love the photo texture you put... and you Kino is so cleeeeean.... i really love your works.
    you make me jalous....
    Hope to see you soon master !!!

    Nice job on the backround, even if the window and frames look alittle flat. You should probably think about making the character darker, so she goes with the backround even more than she does now. But overall you did a great job with this wallpaper.

    PROBABLY your best wallpaper since the Ugetsu Hakua one... Interuption Unwind.

  15. tAtEkAnE Jul 26, 2005

    woooo! really sweet!
    tho at first the window looks actually embossed..but dang it's nice xD
    i downloaded and will use it after my recently changed desktop wallpaper xD

  16. SirMackerel Jul 26, 2005

    Wow, I've seen the original, and I have to say, your background is amazing. Great job!

  17. Tama-Neko Jul 26, 2005

    Yay, schoolgirl-AU-Kino! :D Awesome background with the classroom, I love the little details on the chalkboard, although the bottom of the chalkboard looks flat (like a frame) and not like there's a sill that you can put an eraser on. I like the mountains through the window, although I miss peeping Shizu :P

  18. PANDAgirl Jul 26, 2005

    Wow! The whole thing goes really well together :3 It all looks like it's from an artbook of some sort ^___^ Really nice wall Oracle! ^___^ fav fav fav from me!

  19. toxictea23 Jul 26, 2005

    AWWW oracle T.T ish soo pretty...

    haha nice wallie though.

  20. chau-chan Jul 26, 2005

    The wallpaper is good, the background well done and image too. The color blend is great too! Great job!! ^_^

  21. PikaMoon Jul 26, 2005

    Dang. I'm totally feeling this wall. Sounds stupid, but it's true. I'm currently freaking out about my first day of school, which is coming up soon, because I just transferred schools. Looking at this is like my feelings put into a wallpaper. Dang. Thanks so much. I shall totally use this wall on my first day of school. ^.^ Definitely a favie from me. +fave+ Besides me sharing the same crappy emotions, the wall paper was nicely done. It totally blends so smoothly together. It likes like an original scan. You're definitely amazing and talented. Thank you so much for sharing! ^.^

  22. Rebel-Soul-Kaze Jul 26, 2005

    OMFG >_<...speachless...i like those funny details on the blackboard,maybe like other ppl before says,the window need a little depth,but,anyway,is an amazing job +fav ^^

  23. kara Jul 26, 2005

    Wow great as usual^^ The texture adds a very nice touch to the atmosphere.
    But the little ledge holding the duster is a bit strange since it looks flat but it's meant to hold the duster... >_> shouldn't it stick out a whee bit more? But then again, you might've meant for everything to be somewhat flat-ish.
    But anyways, I love that little person in the corner of the board XD

  24. Skillzpay Jul 27, 2005

    Wow another great KnT wall from you :D
    The texture work and the colors are what make this top notch. Love how you pulled off the classroom, simple yet so fitting. Some of your best work as of late!
