Artist Comment

This is a promo wallie I made for depths-of-sound. The group is dedicated to music and how it inspires our works. So if you like music or if it's a source of your inspiration head over and join if you like to. :) (You should at least check it out)

The inspiration for this wallpaper was the song "How Come You Don't Call Me" by Alicia Keys, I know the original is by Prince but I only now that one version. Fortunatley this wall also gave me the chance to use some Chaiko art and play around with some new patterns. It was indeed fun to make this. (Pattern rage was long overdue XD)

I vectored the scan and changed the colours a lot, I thought the original colours were too cold and wouldn't fit with Soul music. Talking about colours this wallpaper is somehow unusally colourful for me I think, or maybe it's my imagination. I'm also very happy that I finally got the chance to use all my new flower print patterns, I adore them.

The scan is from MT, uploaded by Morphee. Thanks so much for sharing these Morphee, I fell in love with this artist.
Pattern and textures are from: CG Textures, Bashcorpo, Hybrid Genesis, DA!, Appendix Squared and Dioma@Deviantart.

Other Resolutions: 1600x1200 | 1280x1024
The widescreen version cropped a little differently from the other two.

Hope you like this a little, comments and favs are greatly appreciated and don't forget to check out the group. =3

    Grrr, you just had to be first...
    Well, my group wallie is hard and has many characters, but I'll start it soon.
    I really like the perspective and her 'gosh, I have a useless boyfriend' look.
    Great job!

    *already joined* :D

    I think the new color scheme looks great and I love how you've used all the different textures. Great work! :)

    See, that's why I like simple wallpapers. They're just so appealing!
    I love the patterns you used, they fit very well with the scan and color scheme; everything looks calm.
    (and yeah, I'm jealous too because you got to submit first XD)

    I saw the thumbnail and knew it was yours (again). It just looks like something you'd wall. XD
    What can I say about your work? It's as lovely as usual. I really adore your use of earthy tones - it's something that always draws my eye to your submissions (I saw tan, brown, and green and thought this was yours, afterall).
    The perspective really is great - it seems so real. The patterns and textures you've used fit perfectly - I'm especially lovin' those pillows.
    Great job, Anja! ^^

    I really don't know how could I miss this wallpaper?!?
    Great colours, you manged to create an artwork that is sad, soothing and hopeful at the same time. I also like to imagine that she's drinking some scented tea. Weird, right?
    Anyway, a favourite from me and an immediate desktop exposure :).
