Among all AP Clash entries, here is mine :3

Here's my explanation of theme:
Within this wallpaper, there are several different perspectives that display the theme "human condition". Instead of focusing on either a positive or negative, I depicted a scene that displays both while also displaying what being human is in a logical and moral sense. In a logical sense, we are different from animals because we think and we feel a wide variety of emotions. Individuals who are regarded to show no emotion or thought are regarded as "inhuman", which is a bit ironic because those very actions that can be regarded as inhuman are part of the human condition. As displayed in this wallpaper, being human in terms of a logical sense is depicted by being able to inflict harmful actions based upon reasons like religion, economical, political as well as many other by-products of our society that lead to big scale conflicts. However, this wallpaper also displays one of conditions of being human in moral sense, which feeling regret for our own mistakes.

    This clash is really inspiring! I always loved the Ishval chapters in FMA manga : they are so deep and heart-wrenching, especially that scene where Riza buries an Ishvalan child... I remember crying the first time I've read it. Your wallpaper brought back these emotions I felt the first time, and just for that, I thank you.

    I love to read descriptions of wallpapers when they are like yours : thanks to them, we're able to understand what you did and why you did it. I believe that the Ishval war fits really nicely with your deep reflexions on human nature. And the composition's very nice. In your description, you talk about two sides of our human nature, and we're able to see them at a glance in your wallpaper.

    Thanks for sharing, and sorry for the long comment ;)

    PS : I would love to know what you wrote in Braille at the bottom of the wallpaper, too :)
