Artist Comment

My entry for MT Knockout Round 1. The theme was "Retro", where no vectoring/painting was allowed, so this was a pretty simple wall. I didn't really extract the character, just sort of blended the background, layered a bunch of grunge textures + went crazy with the brushes.

Scan used:

the equinoctial line - Maka Albarn (Soul Eater)



Lyrics (c) Fall-Out Boy

I will admit I got a bit lazy with the typography o x o
I tried messing around with it a bit since, but haven't really come up with anything to my satisfaction; I may give it another whirl and add an altered version later.

There were quite a few nice entries this time around, and I'm honored to be competing against such talented artists. I encourage you to take a look around the gallery at some of the other walls that were entered c:

    Ahh, this is one of my favorite wallpapers from the round <3 What can I say, I have a soft spot for well-done grunge walls.
    Really, I can't find anything to complain about. I like the text (it doesn't look lazy, IMO), the triangles on the left and the smudges on the right. Insta-fav from me!

    Dem brushes and textures~ <3

    Late comment, I know, I just basically faved-and-ran this but better late than never haha. This is also one of my favorite entries because everything looks so well blended and the colors and composition are a killer.

    Good luck in the next round! o/
