First of all----CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS of the AP: Clash of the Wallers ©2010!


Round 3 (FINAL) || "Inspiration: Past, Present, and Until Dangos Are No Longer Sweet"

RESULTS----click me


Sadly, I didn't win the competition. LOL. XD But the winners are really deserving too. But it's OK for me because I got to take part of this competition until the last round. ^^v Winning would just be a bonus for me. 'Til next time! Hahahaha.


Well, I must say that this round's theme really got my brains to work REAL HARD. I was glad that my waller's block didn't last that long.
My wall has two inspirations: 1) from the simplistic yet stylish iPod walls of Tama-Neko, and 2) from the KICK-ASS typography walls of AssasinXXX. It also showcases a current style that I recently tried and loved----also it also shows a technique in which I hope I can improve on.
What struck me the most on the iPod walls of Tama-Neko is that it is even though the elements are minimal, it's still organized and complete. Also, it involves the love for music. I chose to wall a BECK wall (even though it's my first time doing it because I haven't watched the series yet) because it's an Anime about music----loving music. How my wall came across with some typography is because of AssasinXXX. His typography just KICKS some ASS. The way he brings it together to make the whole concept of a wall complete is just AWESOME. Just as he has told me, sometimes, listening to music is a good way of helping when you're doing a typography wall. BTW, the song in my wall is "JOURNEY" from BECK itself. It all comes down to music. LOL. Kidding.
But anyway, what I want to prove/point here in my wall is the typography. I kinda associated it with the round's theme. Typography, no matter how long time goes by, it will still be timeless. It won't phase out. Ever since the world began, typography came from calligraphy itself too. Calligraphy has been used by our ancestors all around the world. As time goes by, it still hasn't phased out. It just keeps on evolving and evolving. That is how I came up with the idea of creating and finishing this wall.
The technique that I want to improve on is the shadowing/blending/highlighting. As you can see, it has still some flaws in there. Hahaha.

P.S. The reason why I didn't remove the crease of the paper texture that I got is because it's really a part of the wall itself. I think it was only Kalico who knew what it was for. LOL. It supposed to look like a book----with the text "Another Chapter Begins"----and the design is just about to flow out of the book. ^^v But don't worry, I've got other versions of this wall so that you can choose from it.

P.P.S. Made some revisions (after reading the judges' comments) before submitting this wallpaper. I lessened the textures because it was kinda loud and noticeable. I added also some shadow to give it that "popping-out" feel. LOL. >:3

I humbly thank my inspirations----Tama-Neko (without you, I wouldn't have been inspired to start walling. 8d), and AssasinXXX (your walls just speaks for itself. I really like your style too----with all that fantabulous typography to go with. ^^v)

A comment, +FAVE, +DL, comment+FAVE, comment+DL, FAVE+DL, or a comment+FAVE+DL would be most appreciated! <3 <3 <3

You know you want to fave it. LOL.

I hope you like this wallpaper as much as I do!

Enjoy. (^3^)

P.P.P.S. Before I forget, I'd also like to thank the AWESOMESAUCENESS judges for this round. _(._.)_

P.P.P.P.S. BTW, there are 3 signatures in this wall. Can you find the other two? Oh yeah, from now on, you will see an insignia (the circle stamp/thingy beside my signature) on every wall that I submit. The initials represent my real name. LOL.
