Artist Comment

I have not much to say except on plain sight, this looks like a rip, I do hope that you spare time to have a look at what I have done with this wallpaper.
Because it was too difficult and too beautiful on its own to do anything about it, including cutting out background and all that jazz, plus being on a brain block, I choose to make a wallpaper = scan like wallpaper.

Source = www.genocidekiss.com
Artist = Yumehito Ueda

The artist seems to be male, and is a comic artist apparently.

This wallpaper is based on one of his/her walls, I took quite some time trying to figure out what I can do to make it better, but then, it didn't quite come to me, to me, the wallpaper was missing something, like widescreen for my new widescreen monitor, the lacking of resolution and quality, the lack of clarity, and of course, being a texture whore, textures was missing and it gave me a sense of over bright background versus character feeling.

So for that, I began work on it.
First, I cleaned it, of course. Slowly but surely, I make the blurry corners a bit clearer, gave some blending for the skin, added textures and blended them bit by bit to ensure the best effects without too much standing out. Then, the birds... they must be blended as they are too dark and too much contrast for my eyes (yes I dont have 2020 vision).
Then, I extended the character wall to nearly 152% from its original size to match 1920 res. This requires further cleaning after of course, and then, it is time to clear the table for signature textation.

I love text, I cant do without them in my walls. So this time, I wanted a long one, and thus we have that.

That said, this wallpaper might as well be a nice scan, I have no complaints if it were deleted due to lack of effort I am just gonna share it anyhow, my personal opinion is that it is a sad attempt to wall, but then it is still worth it cause I am using it now.

Anyhow, again, as per usual, Devildude offers all sorts of choices and along with this I have:
