Mmm, i've gotten a good response from the first two wallpapers i posted, so i decided to post a third. The date the original .jpg file has is October 3rd, 2004 (yes, i've been making wallpapers without joining MT for quite a while. lazy girl am i.) looking back, it probably could have done without the lyrics, but the psd file is long gone, so whatever. lyrics are from Cursive's Sierra (and are as follows):

In the desert, where the cities are made of gold,
There's a girl playing hopscotch with pink ribbon pigtails.
And hermom calls out from an apartment balcony,
"come on, baby! your bath is ready! it's almost time for sleep!"
And I wonder who's the father...
And I wonder what they call her - sierra.

Does her mother smoke, or does she jog every morning?
Does she drink when she thinks about me?
Or doesn't she need to drink... does she have a man who works a
nine to five?
Does he come home to kiss our young sierra, tuck her in and say
goodnight?
(and an extra kiss for mama...)
I want that kiss, that kid, that apartment.

I'm ready to settle down now, so get that man out of my bed.
I want my daughter back now, I want to kiss her,
Tuck her in and say, "goodnight, my baby girl, sierra."

Sierra, sierra, sierra, sierra,

I'll never know who you are, and I don't deserve to.
My little girl, we would�¯�¿�½ve been so... oh, nevermind.
But I'm ready to settle down now - yeah, I'm ready to leave that
wrecking ball behind.
I could be your carpenter, and you could be my twinkling north
star o'er the desert sky.

I thought the song suited Alex's character in an odd sort of way, especially once you begin to find out about him in the latter half of the series. Last Exile kicks bum :)

    Oooo, very cool!
    I like the colors and that scan is freaky/awesome. There seems to be a tiny white dot on it though, like, right next to his chin.
    Anyway, nicely done!

    This is some really good grunge work. You didn't get too repetitive with your brushes, and you did just the right amount of grunge to make it look nice. The different colors is a very nice touch as well. I don't know if I'm too crazy over the text, but thats not a big deal. Nice work shiningdays :)

    waa crazy grunge here.
    But I'm not quite liking the black lines...the cracks-line texture.
    They are quite distracting.
    I like the texts u've added tho...haha
    still..this is one awesome grunge wall ;)
