Brushes : Birds/ some clouds

Textures: given to me by Chloe-chan

The scan is suppose to be blurry!
no mentions of it, I tried to make it easier on
the eyes so go easy on me.

Dedicated to:
Friends, all my good buddies - ASH, Entity, Moonescape,
Kawaii-chicken, Enchant, Naomi, erikamirou, Kairi-Hearts,
EevaLeena, Sinever, MapleRose, kykyopj, theres more just I'm
jumbled.... and to my new friends Gaara, alterlier, and some more
who I hope to get to know better.

Special Thanks to: Chloe-chan and Naomi-chan
for helping me get the wall looking much better and
for suggestions

The wall itself is a message of leaving the old
and entering the new, forgetting the pain, troubles and
tears that were done for many years or for a any amount of years.
I know not my but many friends have gone through alot of hardships
in the past and since I'm taking a step in moving on I wanted
to inspire others to move on and open a new door for themselves.

Whole bg except for birds and clouds was vectored,
girl was extracted and given a shadow effect. Textures and
adjusting made it this way and the pic in the back to avoid
plainness and cause it fit with the message.

First wall of the New Year!
and I wanted to to be something in the steps
of getting better and being great.

To my friends, Thanks for the support and
love. I'll always do my best to help you out
and motivate you in my own silly way <3

For my EDD! sistas:
It's been more than a pleasure working
and having fun with you all, I hope we can
add more to our site and become a big sexy family XD

More Resolutions at: EDD! (once I figure out how to resize this type of wall)

    Will this be the first? (Edit: Yes, it is. w00t!)

    I have to say that I absolutely love the indirect presentation in using the shadows.

  2. Kairi-Hearts Jan 02, 2008

    I really love the wall <33
    The message you give us through the wall is great and inspiring. I can't really put it in words but I totally love this Kitten :3

    There's just something about this wall that I love so much, Kitten-chan.

    huh oddly enough i had a deeling made this wow^^i love this wall alot its not like the others but the image of the girl kinda throws it off or its out of place?well my opinion but overall this wall is amazing wow :)

  6. melymay Jan 02, 2008

    Interesting concept ^^ Everything looks great except for the picture with the blood on it. The edges are really jagged. Extracting them off would probably work. The angle is a bit off too.. But it looks great :) Keep it up!

    Awww, this is so great! Though I must agree, the angle of the floor and the picture frame is slightly off-center. And I'm glad to be your friend, Kit-chan. Good work~

  8. Hanahanoiday Jan 03, 2008

    Ooooo ..that look really very interesting!
    This shadow is so lovely!

  9. alterlier Jan 03, 2008

    you know, it's been quite a while since I first saw a wall and didnt understand a thing haha, the shapes are indeed in a good perspective however I also find a little odd the frame with the picture, haha actually this wall is particularly odd and funny, but that's not always bad for me, actually never.

  10. jaderabbit Jan 03, 2008

    different and unique, definitly awesome though i enjoy this, great style.

  11. Sinever Jan 04, 2008

    thanks alot for the sweet wall XD
    its a strange wall but unique at the same time & that what makes it special :)
    well done & its a fav ;)
    thanks again XD

    This is wonderful! I can totally just understand why you chose this! I can udnerstand it very well because I didn't just left the 2007 year behind, but the year of my middle/elementry school too.

    Creativity really played a part in here with a silhouette and the concept of this.

    I just love it and thank you so much for this! I made a promise of the new year I'd move on and now its getting easier for me to move on as the new day dawns in the new year. Thank you again for being a friend still...
