lately this has become a problem.


Happy really belated birthday aqi!
lol actually i was making you something else but.. ITS FRUSTRATING ME so i stopped. you will get it at the end of time ^^;


ahhhhhhhhhhhh another shotgun wall, but this was born from insomnia. seriously i couldnt sleep and then all of a sudden i got an idea for a wall. well... IT TURNED OUT NOTHING LIKE WHAT I PLANNED D<

the plan: lots of white space with sleek transformed texted shadows
well i always shade more than i should so the white space disappeared slowly
and then the transform tool for text is really gay so instead we get the newsprint kind of look because photoshop really hated the amount of text that i used.

story: lol obviously i made this because i couldnt sleep, BUT when i was thinking about my original plan i was like HOLY SHIT THAT SCAN! ITS PERFECT. (oh yes i plan more walls with this scan). but anyways i also started writing excerpts off the top of my head, with the theme of infatuation-induced insomnia--lol i will post the text on AP :D. (STRIKEjust imagine squalo is pining after xanxus *_*/STRIKE)

and finally, before i began i thought this would be the perfect wall for the CL contest, sooo i started i thought of my drink/song of choice. WHAT ELSE AM I GOING TO CHOOSE OTHER THAN VITAMIN WATER?! specifically the revive variety--really helps for hangovers (apparently) ^^; i tried my hardest with the pink color--its such a hard color to use T_T. and while i was typing the story, i knew i wanted the soulful-oldie sounding lyricality of mercy by duffy. ahh its a such a great song *_* (STRIKEand squalo is totally at the mercy of xanxus *_*/STRIKE)

ok and finally, about alternate versions... this version is NOT DESKTOPABLE AT ALL if you have any icons lol. i tried flipping the scan but the text doesnt make sense since its supposed to be going from top to bottom and also squalo's pose just doesnt make sense either. so i make like a fade to black version that you can adjust to your level of iconness :D


ok finally stats
vector #74 // superbi squalo (omg you are so fucking hot!) // KHR // amano akira
time: 7 hours
layers: 59 :D
scan: at AP

    Wow, from the thumb I thought, another great Vitaa work...but then I full-viewed and was hit unexpectedly by the presence of text! Almsot forgot about Vitaa's love for text! And I love it too! It's really well done. Not that the rest of the wall isn't XD The painting, colours, and design are all wonderful as all your works are ^^
    Of course Vitaa must do vitamin water! XD
    Love the idea of the crop-it-yourself version. Stopped everyone's "no icon room" complaining in a flash! XD

    Fuck. D: don't ever tell me you're not creative ever again.
    Love the way the text just layers over everything and creates texture and stuff.
    Also, insomnia is the best inspiration. Eveeer.

    I forgot what insomnia meands but it is gorgeous :3
    Yet another vector done! XD Fantastic work!

    I think the colors blend greatly together!
    And I don't know how but the way you vector is very unique, they always have this glossy smooth shine that makes them seem like u could touch them lol
    As to be expected from the no.1 khr fanatic i know! =D perfect job!

    *instant favs* X3

  21. ismiy Apr 10, 2009

    This is the first of your works I've downloaded and I can't believe it took only 7 hours. You must be a guru!
    I'll start losing sleep if I think of getting as good as this... but I don't care XD!

  22. Keiyan Apr 14, 2009

    It looks Beautifull! Really really *^^* Squallo looks sad and fragil, which considering what he's usually like in almost a paradox! lol I love it ^^ fav!
    Thanks for sharing this, may you continue to do more XD

  23. Dreia May 11, 2009

    Beautifullllll :)
