My antidote to happy girl with fluffy clouds walls. BLOOOOOOOOOOD!

This past weekend I basically spent rewriting the layout for DA! in preparation for its 6th birthday on Thursday. Thankfully I'm mostly done, but I am quite burned out from trying to decipher the PHP I wrote a year ago and really, really needed to make a wallpaper to clear my mind.
Somehow, my mind works in a very morbid fashion, because I traced
this manga cover scan and made into a bloodfest. If you remember my Kino "Bodyguard" wall, it's made in the same fashion, with the red gradients and with several layers of blood splatter brushes. Everything red except for Ed's golden eye and the Gate's white eye, to draw you into the focal points by their stark contrast.
Yes, he and the eye are intentionally off-center. It's generally not good design sense to perfectly center stuff (although I totally fail at Rule of Thirds).
Title because it's that ubercreepy Eye and shadowy hands from beyond the gates. I swear I'm gonna have nightmares tonight x_x
Additional resolutions will be available at DA! Desktop Anime on Thursday, because I can't update the database until after the new layout goes live since I'm using a new set of SQL tables. I SWEAR next year all I'll have to do is update the CSS and be done with it. REALLY I WILL.

EDIT: When will I ever learn that red + jpeg never work? That thumbnail looks like the Gate ate it >_>

    Wahh, not my desktop resolution >_<
    But it's rather interesting, yet spooky.
    Ah, your creativity never ends, Tama :) Great work worth two thumbs up, once again. Although it might not be everybody's cup of tea.

    Wow! I really love this wall. Not only does it feature one of my favorite pictures of Ed, but it has a really interesting feeling to it. Great overall job. =)

    Sorry for the late comment! T_T
    Whoa, this is weird, but the effects are so cool and neat! o_O I love the black and red colors...they match so well together! I don't know what the black tentacles are, but they are awesome! XD Keep it up and thanks for sharing, Tama-chan! ^_^

    Very unique wall. It's very dark and creative. The thumbnail doesn't do the wall justice at all.
