Artist Comment

After a long period of absence from anything artistic I decided to excuse myself from work and studies and try out some completely new techniques and styles (for me). I managed to complete two out the three wallpapers I had in mind. Today I will submit these two and by the end of June I will upload the last one for the summer (or maybe this year).

Submission a.
The specific wall is a vectored one with some extremely sharp features as I was thinking of creating a dramatic scene (something like the end of the world where everything is falling apart). Black, red, grey 50% - 80% and white is the color scheme. Plus, I have added some details where I thought necessary (birds and dead trees)

...There is creature hiding under the veil of the night, a boy you wish you would never meet

The shadows of the night,
are unleashed again.
Where their greed begins
the end is near.
A morbid hunger for blood,
lies in their cold black eyes
They've come to take our lives away

One by one they died.
A massacre that took all night
They had no chance, it was no fight
You can't kill what has been killed before,
They died

With shadows on its tale.
He stepped Through the portal,
locked the door and ate the key.
With his life they took their way to freedom,
and be became the final keeper of the key

...he is the gatekeeper of the door that separates heaven from hell.

Parts of the lyrics: Within Temptation, 1997 - Gatekeeper

Ps1. You should definitely point out all the things that disgust you in my wallpaper. It is great to hear/ read your comments, so as to know what should I improve exactly. You guys provide the best possible advice. Consider yourselves as my art teachers^^
Ps2. Specially dedicated to Danielle cause she loves Dogs (I mean the manga XD)! An amazing person, who has ispired me and helped me out quite some times when I thought of giving up on any kind of art.
