Finally ...I actually finished this....this......jaja ....anyway....you cant imagine all the meanings, the symbols , and all the essence that I try to put on this wall, it took me like a month to find the right/perfect scan and turn out be another of range murata ...
ok...let's start...
well the main thing here ...is not girl...is of course the ladder...have you ever been next to a ladder that is laid down on a wall or is one those scissors ladders...and you are like....do I pass or not? like if that superstition that if you pass down a ladder you are gonna have bad luck sound like true or something.....so now imagine there's no only a ladder but cats ...black cats are right next to you also ...and you cant do anything more than just walk away...what do you do? well of course you walk away...in the end it doesn't matter the idea of superstition or whatever ...but only for a tiny moment...there ...you in front of the ladder ...is kind of true that you doubt about the idea that you are maybe scared? jaja who knows....the thing is that this was something that I really wanted to do, I'm very happy to actually be able to said that I finished.
the last but not least is: "The method to solve my own thoughts" => The Tra => The Art, my personal way.
oh yeah the scan came from here:


oh yeah....the white thing in the middle of the bench (or whatever that is) is the eye of a black cat.
and just to explain the egg ...you can say that is not like you are gonna go eating a black egg ...so is supposed to be another bad luck sign XD

An unusual & original use of an unusual & original image.

The vector has nicely captured the innocence & grace of the original artwork. The bold blacks sparingly & dynamically used to emphasis light & shadow works so well with the subtle textures & muted colours.

It's a real combination of peaceful posing & a striking background. How can something so still have such a burst of energy to it...

    hey, i love the concept of this.. >.< yeah, i'm also in superstitions, and when I saw the wallpaper you posted at CL that was the first thing that came into my mind by the look of the ladder and the black cat. but actually I thought at first you were drawing your brother in the wallpaper, haha. and i love the color combination because it fits with the theme. Along with the black egg, haha. this goes in my favs!

  5. annakee Jul 25, 2006

    let me see *staring* well, the whole theme is touching, imouto-san. i dont know if you are changing your style intensionally or is simply something like be more honest with yourself. your compositions are more emotive each time and this is something for we must be very thankful. (for everybody else can be "emotives" like an artistic expression, for me are "emotional"...)

    your are in motion

    I really love the texture and the color scheme you've used. Very crisp vectoring by the way ;)

    Ohh... a black cat under the stairs? hope you are not supersticious XD

  8. starrliteangel Jul 25, 2006

    whoa...another great wallpaper from you, alterlier. This one has to be featured in CL for sure! I cant believe I almost missed it in the guestbook >.<;; The vector is awesome and the texture is very nice. I love black cats - I have 2. lol! No one has died yet...so I think we're gonna be good as long as we dont add in a ladder somewhere.

  11. airam13 Jul 25, 2006

    the tra!
    yeah my friend the art
    well first of all I have to say that I would've prefered more creamy colors in this wall, but as somebody up there said they fit perfectly with the theme and the atmosphere you wanted to create...XD
    Now getting back to the theme by itself, I like it a lot from the first time you where talking about it...although I have to say something about superstitions...

    somethigs you sholud now...
    The black cat is a feline whose fur is uniformly or mostly black. It is not a particular breed of cat and may be mixed or of a specific breed. In Western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a symbol of bad omens. The all-black pigmentation is equally prevalent in both male and female cats, and typically skips one generation due to the characteristic's association with the X chromosome...

    well I missed one thing...

    Historically, black cats were symbolically associated with witchcraft and evil. In Hebrew and Babylonian folklore, cats are compared to serpents, coiled on a hearth. Originally in Britain and Europe, a black cat crossing ones path was considered good luck; however they were also seen by the church as associated with witches. This association with witches possibly stems from pre-Christian Europe when witches weren't considered evil. In fact it was the church, who considered them unholy and pagan, who altered their reputation. The black cat was still usually seen as good luck, however in the USA and parts of Europe which were affected by the witch hunts the association with witches caused them to be considered as bad luck. In places which weren't affected particularly by witch hunts, they retained their status as good luck, and are still considered as such in Japan and most of Britain.

    strange ha? well at least in Japon and Britain people believe what I believe black cats are really really cool like your wallie ++ so keep it up!

    Indeed an unusual and unique wallpaper, but nevertheless eloquent and original. I really enjoy how there's a lot of symbolism and leaves you pondering about those superstitions( I know I am lol). Beautiful design and overall a wonderfully executed piece of work! Thank you for sharing this, keep it up!

  13. mystvearn Jul 26, 2006

    Its unusually good, for something out of the norm. I really like the grey colours. Looks like there is no way to pass thru the ladder :D Though I'm too big to pass thru one anyway
