This is a wallpaper i made.


Chosen by bromithia and kuroimisa

It is really somewhat rare to see brushes used in a way like this. Usually with a composition like this you would think like shapes, pentool and all sorts of other really funky things (not that brushes aren't funky)- but really, it's quite refreshing to see brushes being intensively used in a way that's really clever.

It might just be me, but seeing extracted images (and manga ones at that!) blended together is something in my memory that has almost been forgotten! But having said so, this is the beauty of this wallpaper- this is a great example of having multiple scans and making it funky.

Not only are the brushes used well, scans used well and placed well, the colours are used in a sophisticated way. There is a high level of control and deliberation in this, yet it is so fluid and just bleeds (haha pun not intended!) into image after image.

Lol. Full marks for the wallpaper- maybe not so full marks for the description ;) ... but <3 the use of text.


Definitely needs more love u.u

    You should write proper descriptions about HOW you made the wallpaper D:

    This wallpaper represents the craziness of Akira perfectly. I love it.

    Simply put, this is amazing. I'm so pleased to see this and can't believe I missed it D:
    As a result I have written the longest highlight message from memory because I can't stop yakking about every single element of this. So skilfully controlled <3

    *gives love*
    I absolutely love this wall~ so... crazy XD yet so controlled, as kuroimisa said ^^ tho many people use black+white+red in their walls, few actually make quality art that doesn't tire the eye =D
    Great work =D
    *gives more love and cookies <3*

    Only thing I dont like is the text in katakanas, somehow that 3d look seems out of place. The rest is pure akira goodness, and the composition still earns a fav :)

    Hum, lots of evil eyes in this wall ! Great composition, and i love how you managed not to emphasize one single scan, but everyone of them, so that the viewer can drift his gaze to any part of the scan without being forced to look at one part only :)

    Awesome job, so thumbs up and big fav :D
