This is my Round 1 entry for the Knockout! competition. And what a mighty first round. I honestly did not expect to make to round two. Wow. @_@

There's nothing really to say about it. I found a rad pic of Meiko on Danbooru, and lined it. Then I did what I did. I was originally going to do some FANCY vector with a SHAMNCY background.... but nah. Also, I was listening to a lot of techno and electronica subgenres. To me, the color scheme of white, grey, magenta, mustard yellow, and blue are techno colors.

The theme of the first round was "welcome to my world". Some of the judges didn't seem to get my take on it, and that's my fault. The world I chose was the world of my inner thoughts - which are riddled with conflicting thoughts and ideas - my own type of insanity. The text I chose to represent that included a summery of OCD, explaining the physics behind super massive black holes, incomplete bath equations, a bullshit recipe, some random sentance I made up, as well as broken grammar structures. Why I chose text to represent my world, is because I'm primarily a writer - it's how I express myself. So if one knows me, the theme was probably easy to get.

Enjoy, Minna~

    Congrats on passing on to round two! :D
    That really was one hell of a competition, I'm still reading through all the entries now, atm. Sad I didn't make it to round 2, but I'm not complaining. I'm too lazy. XD

    I have to say, kickass wall, love the design, though I did agree with the comment about the lineart being too uniform. But still, it's awesome. I love this.

    Lol, it's still a very funky wallpaper regardless :P I got it, though the made up sentence did confuse me a bit lol (one of those things that had to be explained, or known in advance, perhaps?) Either way, not a biggie - and great work ^^

    Nicely done!

    Gah another great K.O. wall that I must pimp at Simple-ism now x]

  8. gaara-no-shukaku Apr 09, 2010

    I just love the simple colours you used here. They look so cool with the bold lineart and neatly designed texts, though yeah the texts shouldn't be overlapping 'cause it's somewhat confusing. But nonetheless - it's an awesome wall.

  9. chibimisao Apr 09, 2010

    Nice use of text in the background. I also love the gray color scheme with the little colored parts. You did a great job on designing a simple yet stylish wallpaper. ;D

  10. queerisblue Apr 09, 2010

    It's one of my favourite walls at Knockout. Love all clean lines of your work.
    And I think that I dig your style, so I apologize if I'm going to spam your gallery XD

  11. Sakura-Dust Apr 09, 2010

    It's amazing, I love it too much, I can't express it well XD;;

  12. TsundereChidori Apr 09, 2010

    que lindos... gracias esta bien buena...^^

    I love the colour scheme, simple and clean, and very bold. I also like the colour out of lines thing, it's fitting for a chaotic-themed wall.

    I don't really like the overlapped text at the bottom though, it's a bit too messy and unnecessary imo.... I also think the line could be a bit more varied in weight (a lot of the parts look kinda stroke-pathed...) to add to the dynamicness and chaos,

    Love the wallpaper... funky and full of awesomeness!

  16. ngakyuklim Apr 10, 2010

    nice! but her eyes are a little creepy, no?

  17. Ephemeral-Garden Apr 10, 2010

    I love this, seriously. Love the funkiness, love the colours and love the use of text. Ah damn that's Meiko. Though I do find the text a bit too spacey and too uniform. And I don't get the 3 words that are coloured and their connection but heck this is really my kind of wall. <3 Nice job on this one.

  18. sailorchiron Apr 10, 2010

    I thought I'd given you some other phrase to use for your title...? I think I already told you that this is freakin' awesome in every way, it even graced my desktop during the competition. Totally effing legend, dude.

  19. DontBelong Apr 10, 2010

    Awesome wall! my fav from the comp! good luck for the next round :)

  20. trofikabinet Apr 10, 2010

    Must...love...this wall o__O

  21. FallenAngelZoicyte Apr 10, 2010

    i love the line art with simplified colors. the 'ink jet' color scheme is always a fun one. makes printing easier too. i love the bath equations... hahaha. can it be simplified to shower curtainxwater+soap=clean? lol. proof read your description! you know i love you. hahaha. great wall.

  22. DREAM Apr 11, 2010

    haha; music themed wallz scored pretty high- lol. i like the recipe for disaster on the left there: 1 stick of dynamite, ..., mix and eat. lol

    my main crit: is first the megaphone (circle section) is way too jagged and contrasts the relatively smooth base paths. also the spacing of the type is far too great and the font isn't well suited here.

    but yeah congrats on the win.

  23. memostar May 16, 2010
