right, this is for the UA competition, though i highly doubt it'll get anything, its so simple XD and now that i think about it, i don't know how to submit it...oh well.plus i wanted to use ni instead of sanzo, ni's more crazy, or rather, he's more scientific than sanzo and the theme was mad science. but sanzo's gotta do cos i couldnt get good pics of nii.


oh and, sanzo is meant to be slightly blurred, he stood out too much before that.

sanzo is a priest, and i high ranking one at that. hence "high priest".psychopathic because he is that.nothing really special about the name, simply stating the facts.lol.sanzo is such a hot, scandalous priest.

brushes: i used none, just gradients, layers and fooled with the layer settings abit.the shadowing and such were boredom induced
stock: can't remember where, but i don't think its from mt
texture: also can't remember, been with me quite some time and i've been wanting to use it :\
time: unknown, just start, stop and continue when i can
listening to: eyes on you by jay sean
program: adobe CS2. thankyou, adobe programming team , without you this would not exist, and neither would all my other wallpapers and banners
tutorials: celestial-star.net for teaching me the basics like extracting and use of gradients.

to my classmate who will be retained next year.she isnt in mt but i thought it'd be nice to cheer her up, she's so sad.first time i've seen her cry, she's always so happy. T_T i'll miss her

    Well done Pache! This is one of the most inspiring Saiyuki art wallpaper works I've seen in some many weeks from an affiliated fan artist. I would disagree that it's composition is simple. Perhaps it's construction didn't take an arm and a leg to put together, but the over all effect is very pleasing and highly inspirational! :)
    An excellent primary artwork selection by Minekura, this tragic priest is well renowned for the blood he's spilled and likewise the blood he sheds. With his trademark Smith & Wesson pistol and turbulent temper, I find the corresponding artwork, the collaboration of colours, textures and gradients to be dynamic, well blended and refreshing! A very gritty, in your face piece that I personally appreciate a great deal!
    Well done and good luck for your UA competition entry! :)

    hello, I read your comment in my guestbook... and here I am! :) My first thoughts were this looks really complicated... and fits well to the text "Psychopath". I imagine a psycho's mind to be like that... *lol* filled with all sort of thoughts and images that no one else can understand. Looking at it for a longer time I see a face in the background and flowers... i like this wallpaper... yes you are right I do like "this kind of work"... the only thing I am not so sure about are these flowers that were taken out of a photo, right? I am not sure whether they are really needed... and if you want them in the wallpaper... maybe they shouldn't be that much visible on the left...the part where there are two flowers together and the background is black... The red part is very good I think... so I'd say this is the only part I am not so sure about.
    I hope this was a help to you! :) I am going to add your wallie to my favs... :) I like that kind of wallpapers too much... so I must make some advertisement for you! *lol* Good luck for the competition! ^^

    This is a very good wall no complaints on this one. Reminds me of a dream... The effects are great i just love them. Those kinda effects are my favourite. I dont know who the guy is but the wall is great.

    My only real complaints are the extraction around the nose and lips and hair and a TINY bit on the shoulder is very rough and sharp while the rest of the wallpaper is smooth and well-blended. I think a tiny bit of smudging would soften those lines though.

    @____@;; Psychopathic? ;______; Shighs. He's not psychopathic lols. I love the art there. Effects are pretty good. I think you did a good job with that one. <33

    hi!! wow, nice wall^^ yup, it is a pic of a person who is a priest and is chaotic^~ nice!!!..........lalalalalala lol*

  9. Ephemeral-Garden Oct 23, 2005

    A really complicated work here. I mean, all those textures and brushes... those are something I really can't do till now.

    Anyways, your brushplay and textures are nicely done. It's really unfathomable, and it certainly has it's own beauty.

    The only thing I don't really like is the uh... extraction of Sanzo. Patircularly around his front strands of hair, his nose, and his cigarette.

    Overall, I really like the background blendings, but maybe you can improve a little on the extraction. ^^

    And to those who don't who this is, his name is Genjo Sanzo.
    He's from Kazuya Minekura's awesome series Saiyuki. And yes, he is
    a priest, kinda psycho but very charming at least.

    This wallpaper just made me speechless. Supercool. <3

  12. SweetGrl Oct 25, 2005

    Wow! This wall is very unique!! Great job! All your works are truly unique and astonishing! Keep it up, PAche!

  13. Sakura0chan Oct 25, 2005

    You really did a good work with this PAche!! ^^ I like the composition of this wallpaper. :)
    And I think the background really match Sanzo! XD
    I think that there's a little problem with the extraction on his head.
    Keep up the good work!! Thanks a lot for sharing it. :)
    Good luck in the competition!! :D

    Heh. . . nothing quite screams out "psychopath" better than grunge and a palette of vividly contrasting colors. Your choice of Sanzo as the subject was also quite good. That look on his face does also capture the "mad" theme of the wallpaper fairly well.

    In regards to your background, the texturing is quite good, giving the feel of paint streaked across canvas. I can't say that I like the blue flowers very much though, as they seem quite out of place in the grander scheme of things.

    Anyhow, great effort here! Keep up the good work!

    Great colour choices they suit well with the idea of mad science. The brush strokes add also to the theme of madness. I really like the grunge effects on this wallpaper. Good scan selection too, it really highlights the idea of a madman.-Shira

    Aw, poor San-chan. =P He's not a psychopath, really. Violent, yes, but a psychopath? Still looks cool, though ^^
