Artist Comment

For the commemoration of Spirit Day, our school held an activity to us students to go and make a wallpaper (anything) that is Spirit Day-themed and most specially... purple. Though, its was only for us fourth years/seniors.

I had a group consisting of three members (that was the rule) and we we're (from 12:30 a.m. to 7:10 p.m. - our class schedule) inside the computer room all day. OUCH FOR EYES! It was quite fun since most of us (instead of doing the wallpaper) went Facebook and Twitter mode! Haha... I actually harvested my corns in FarmVille before doing this.

"Fruitcake" was the one who searched for the image (we saw a good pic of Goku via Facebook and searched for a bigger version), textures (she renamed the textures so I can't credit but she said they were from deviantArt) and planned the outcome of the wallpaper. My "crush" was the one who made the interpretations and symbolism. While I took the job of editing effects and a few changes.

See the step by step process
The extraction

Since my "crush" made the interpretations (it was supposed to be me, but he said I should take a rest from staring at the computer for too long, he even treated me some snacks - he's making me fall for him more ?), I can't fully describe this wallpaper. All I remember is that the blood splatters were to represent lost lives and violence. Flowers represent a new bloom of humanity - I believe it was about being equal. The purple-theme color was to represent sympathy, wisdom and more. Goku's pose and expression had a meaning and even the position of the blood splatters.

I'll get that interpretation paper someday, I promise.... Or maybe I should just ask him? ???

Please take a look and give me a few suggestions.

Oct 22 EDIT:
2560X1600 resolution (the original revision)
1600x1200 (standard) available in theOtaku
the supposed to be revisions

Oct 23 EDIT:
I replaced the original version with a darker one to get the dark atmosphere of the theme and to give it a more gloomy feeling. The original version is still available. I also updated the wallpaper with alternative versions (see the supposed to be revisions).

Oct 27 EDIT:
A collaboration version made by me and Horseradish

Apr 15, 2011 EDIT:

    Beautiful. This piece is quite simple, yet favorable. The theme is very artistic, I must say. Also, Goku's pose here is quite perfect, and it's like he's holding the flowers at first glance. Which is, to me, fantastic! But in my point of view, It'd be better to not show his hands at the bottom( So that he'd certainly look like he's holding the flowers). But maybe it's not what you are meaning to do. Anyway, it does hit the theme 'spiritual'. Keep it up!
