Artist Comment

...I knew him, Horatio.

Actually I started this wall to recover from a failed vector, after a while I noticed how pretty the whole thing had gotten and totally obsessed over it. ^_^'
The original scan is from Kendi Oiwa's manga Goth based on a novel by Otsuichi. It's about two students who are interested in death and murder. I scanned it myself and then started to vector trace.
The background for this wallie went through so many stages it was really beginning to annoy me. When I started I had something like this in mind, but I really thought it looked weird with masks in the background, even after changing that theme several times. After a while I got really fed up and decided to settle on the cheapest solution, curtains. I shall refer to this as the XXX-Holic-Syndrome from now on, if you can't think of anything better, you use curtains. x_x Of course the new chair and curtains are vectored from XXX-holic artwork (chair here, curtains here).
In the end I think I'm quite happy with the outcome even if it turned out totally different from what I imagined in the beginning.

Texture's for the background and curtains are from Bashcorpo and Dioma@Deviantart, patterns were taken from Hybrid Genesis.
Other resolutions: 1600x1200 | 1280x1024

Hope you enjoy, all comments and favs are greatly appreciated.

    This is really something. The dark and macabre atmosphere has been perfectly executed. The details of the skull is just... wow. This is a magnificent creepy wallpaper. Great job. ^^

    Simply love it. Like Kitten said, few artists can achieve such a dark atmosphere if given only the elements you used. Aside from the idea, the vectoring is superb and I think the softness is a strong point of this wallpaper. And as for the background, it's a good thing you kept it simple, it draws attention to the detailed skull more :)

    And yes, I agree with the curtain bit. I used to do that quite often ^_^' +fave for sheer awesomeness.

    ^_^' I wanted to add you to my watchlist for a while, but I see there's no need since I instinctively click on your wallpapers...
    Where to start spreading the love... oh yeah! I love the way you made the vector look... shiny... the lines aren't completely sharp, they're glowing, great effect!
    The guy is really good looking... I'll search for this manga, I need to read some goth goodness.
    Great job on the skull, it's so detailed and realistic <3
    Thanks a lot for the multiple resolutions /(^3^)/ *sets wallie as desktop*

    The version with the masks is also very well done!
    You should put it as another version, it's an interesting idea.

    The wallpaper is definitely very creepy, but not as creepy as the original scan.
    Great work and thank you for the 1600x1200 size!
