Wow, sure has been a while, hasn't it, Minna? ^_^'
My absence from walling can easily be explained with a commen phrase: "I've been busy."
Yes, it happens to all of us. The good news, is that I am no longer busy, so I can now wall to my heart's content! :nya:

On to the wallpaper! FULL VIEW PLEASE! It's just a click of a button, so I don't see why it'd be such a hard thing to do...

First things first, people. I am dedicated this wallpaper to three wonderful girl's that have helped me immensely. That's right, I'm talking about Ori-chan, Anja, and Pande. Our group wouldn't even be alive without you three - for that, I thank you. So this gift is especially for you three!

And on a second note, everyone who hasn't, please check out and possibly join depths-of-sound.

This wallpaper's main inspiration is the song "Just Like Heaven" by The Cure. The song really helped shape the feel and atmosphere of the wall. 'Tis what made me have a girl's head hanging from the cieling without gravity having a toll on her hair. XD

The other inspiration came about today when I was in the grociery store. I found myself staring at the citrus fruits in the produce section. I decided to smell them all, because I'm weird. The bestest smelling was the grapefruits, which I was gonna use instead of the lemon, but I couldn't find a good grapefruit to vector. X-P

The vector itself didn't take long at all, for Kunie's artwork is both simple, yet wonderful. The textures and patterns came from DeviantArt and Bashcorpo. I made the background simple and abstract-ish, because I didn't want to draw away from the two girl's and their dreams of a techno-grunge lemon. :(

This wallpaper has made me realize two things: My love for Kunie's artwork, and my love for citrus fruits. :nya:

I had a more direct discription about the upside down girl, but I'd rather leave that to everyone's interpretation.

Enjoy, Minna, and don't forget to FULL VIEW and check out my group. :)

    lol I wonder what the people around you were thinking when you started smelling at them. XD

    I laughed a lot while picturing a person smelling citrus fruits in a store... it is indeed very weird... ^_^'

    Thank you~! I'm loving the style and use of textures, it's a winner!
    I've always found Kunie Kanbara's style a bit unusual, but not ugly. Cliche as it sounds, it's interesting XD By the way, is she the artist you mentioned in your post?
    *cough*yeah, you'd be dead without us alright*cough* XD Kidding, you're a kick-arse admin :)
    I honestly have no idea of the link between the girls and the lemon ^_^' Then again, I haven't heard the song. But it's funky = it works :D Keep it up!
    P.S. I also like citrus fruits XD

    Nice wallpaper! This looks like pop art (which is making a comeback :P ). I like how you do your backgrounds. You always use good textures. Aside from that, your vectoring is also very good. At first I was wondering why they were both thinking of lemons for, but then I saw your description. >.< Overall, great work!

    Totally awesome, I'm so glad you've discovered the wonder of Kunie!

    Smelling lemons? You weirdo >..<
    I only smell pineapples and watermellons ^_______^
    XD I like the wall idea, it's really cute, who'd ever think that the sole preoccupation of two lovely ladies is a lemon X-P
