Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! =^^=

About this wallpaper__

Extracting the scan was pretty hard. And not to mention doing the metal fence. I only took out the girl from the scan, I had to redo everything by myself. At first, I thought of making a colorful wallpaper. But then I realised that I have not been doing any simple wallpapers. So I thought I would like to make one.

The girl in the scan is actually a catgirl. That's why this wallpaper fall under the category of "unknown catgirls".

I titled this wallpaper "Living In Lies" because black and white somehow reminds me of lies. White lies means "half-lies", right? Thus black lies should be the opposite of white lies, which is "full-lies". Lol. And also, I want to express the feeling of hypocrisy. Everything has two sides. (:

I know it does look weird. Believe me, I don't think I have any sense of art. *sweats*
But I'm just curious and want to try it out. ;]


Time taken: I worked on this since yesterday, it took about 4-5 hours.
Layers: I finished up with only 11. When in truth, it's supposed to be 60+ layers.
(I only took out the girl from the scan, and I had to redo the metal fence, piece by piece, bit by bit, and this took around 20-30 layers already)

    Very nice! What do you mean, you have no sense of art? This is really cool... the balance is very good. Great job. :)

    The wall does show hard work especially the extracting of the fence. I like your symbolism here with the black against white and doing something that I don't think I see other wallers do...take 'out' the scan! *laughs* Very very very unique concept. This should be highlighted for being so different! It also has that abstract-feel to it. I really like how you thought this one out ^_~

    A nice design that shows good effort...but I can't tell what the picture's supposed to be?

  10. candy-chan Retired Moderator Jan 29, 2006

    it has nice contrast and composition, so it's quite good overall. Next time try and give more attention to techinal stuff, like jagged lines and blurry-ness :)

    Interesting abstract piece, but yah it really is difficult to tell what's what XP Apart from that, really awesome design work and shapes... :) Nice!

    I thinnk u did a great job on the fence & I really love the circles behind at the BG...
    Believe me, Im the one without the art sense... >_<
    I don really understand it... ^_^'
    But thats what makes it nice, right?
    I think the combination of the black & white shadow of the cat is really nice...
    & also the little blood specks at the feet...
    feels alil "hurt"
    Great job, I suck at Black & white walls... T_T
