    This wall thoroughly depressed me; but its artistry is beautiful, which seems to be the point. Very well done.

  16. joelawawaw Dec 14, 2004

    awesome. i really like the whole musky and dark effect of this wallpaper. it gives a somewhat mystifying effect to the wallpaper and makes the wallpaper an exact reflection of the quotation. keep going. i love your wallpapers.

    "And thus we walk the valley of the dead which is our subconcius...
    doomed with our inner demons we sought to see th elight once more
    but to shadow ourselves from it just leads to deeper darkness..."
    Awesome job mate!

    "It is impossible to go through life without trust: That is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself."
    Graham Greene, The Ministry of Fear

    wow a very powerful quote!

    im not familiar with "Boys Next Door" so i can't comment on that aspect.

    artistically i love this wall. the guy looks lifeless, perhaps souless and virtually hopeless. his spirit [is imprisioned in his own mind] and chances are very high he will forever remain a captive..

    i was scoping out your gallery tonite DernierCri and viewed most of your wallpapers again and a few for the first time. i was blown away after downloading the ful image of this wall- so much so that i had to take 5 hours before i could comment on it. why? simply because i can relate to this persons mental quarry. er i'll leave it at that.

    your choice of green is most interesting and a tad confusing-- perhaps there is a slight chance of hope? the details are very good: like the lizard and the wall giving a 3 dimensional yet clastrophobic feel to it.

    great wall and message. art with a purpose- damn i love your works DernierCri. :)
