My entry for the second round of W.A.R. 2006: The Wall Thyself Challenge
(The original widescreen version that was not submitted to judges is here)

This is actually my second wall design after I scrapped the first midway through...the round theme made me go rather crazy with the ideas brainstorm :)
I barely squeezed this wall in as I was starting school so it'll probably be my last project in a long while...

Technical Details:
14 hours
33 layers
Illustrator and Photoshop

W.A.R. entry wall description:
My goal was to demonstrate both the technical and mental parts of my walling style.
I picked out three (four technically) objects that represent the three basic steps in my usual process:
1) looking for the best way to frame and present the scan/artwork that I am using
2) creating the pieces of the wall itself whether scenery or abstract (clouds are one of my favorites to paint)
3) adding finishing touches like text and details that are the key to a complete design
In creating the wall, I combined vectoring in Illustrator with painting in Photoshop. The objects were original creations with minor assistance with details from stock photos.
Overall, the idea was to create a wall that was both fresh and beautiful (very loosely connected to the clean laundry idea)...demonstrating my preference for unity, balance, and movement in design.

    haha, funny submission!

    Well, what can I say, a nice composition, really, I liked the "step" things get on the overall layout... (and... ARGH I am doing loads of layouts to University works recently.. all of them publicity and advertise layouts... damn... this is killing me)

    Anyway, a great concept, I am not into the theme of walls, just the doujinshis...

    See ya and have a great week!

    Not going to add much except... I love the concept, but the execution needed a little more time and work that you kinda ran out on :/

    D00d hope you're sleeping well. I didn't get the second job I interviewed for, but I found out today I have another interview on Thursday, so yeah... u__u
