Ima, sokoni iru boku is my favourite anime. It features to me an ecological and anti-war cry. Moreover it gives in an allegorical way pieces of the reality we are lliving into. Lala Ru, the main female character, is something like the "soul of the planet". I tried to convey with all these in this wallpaper. My ambition was to paralel reality with the concept of this anime. My belief is that I 've managed in some way...

As for the wall itself. It is a combillation of four photos, a spaceshot of the Earth, the scan (of course), and two different textures. There are several blurred layers and lots of color playing. What I have most certainly to say is that the scan was in a pretty lousy condition, so I had to completely recolor it (actually I 've changed the colours of her clothes as to fit to my point of view) and reline it. As a result she seems a little sharp. Oh! I forgot to mention the text appearing at the bottom. This quote is taken by the anime itself. In fact this is the opening quote of every episode so I felt it suitable to use it.

    Fabulous wallpaper. She seems so sad, so alone, I just want to reach out and hold her - and tell her all will be alright. The dark tones of the background are terrific. The texture and the blending of colors are great too. You have succeeded in accomplishing your parallel with anime and reality. Definately an art work of skill, talent and a love for anime. Thanks for sharing it. AAA+++++++++++++++++++

    I remember seeing that anime, it was quite strange ... but interesting.
    The wallpaper is pretty neat, how you placed images and put in some words.
    Her sitting on the world, doesn't look like she is, try adding some shadows next time.

    Nice work!

    one of my favs anime too... even, my first deleted wallpaper here (maybe the second one ^^' ) was of "now and then, here and there" (the name at english). one show that at first glance seems ver common (only the first episode), later change abruptly in something crude... definitely, a show for mature audience.
    the wallpaper... wonderful! neat composition.
