Yoshitoshi Abe Wallpaper: falling apart

Yoshitoshi Abe, All You Need Is Kill Wallpaper

1600x1200 Wallpaper

Artist Comment

the second wall of my mini flood, as you can see the title and font are very similar to my previous one. i did that for a reason sense i tried to do the same thing over again and kind of wanted to make them connect. here, i really focused on getting those textures to look real nice on the characters skin to make them look like they are decaying. with the guy on the left, i tried to make it look like his face was cracking off and his hand as well was beginning to crack. for the girl, i tried to make it look like her arm was severly burned and cracked. and lastly, the textures on her face was actually done accidently but i really like how it looked so i kept it. it really reminds me of something hr giger would have drawn so it definitely made me want to leave it in. for both their clothes i used torn wallpaper and chipped paint i believe to texture it while the bg was kinda random and not sure what i really did with that.
and whoops, i just realized i forgot to mention where to scan is from. everyone should be able to recognize that the artwork is yoshitoshi ABe and i believe it is from a manga called "all you need is kill".

    Very nice and surreal atmosphere. The feeling is very forlorn and abandoned, it's kinda creeping me out. XD I absolutely love your grunge though, the sense of decay is very real. ^^

    Beautiful wallpaper! I love the mood this wallpaper gives the viewer, and the use of so many textures and techniques just adds to the overall intesity of it. Great job! :)

    Awesome crapmonster. The grunge blends in so nicely with the scan. And I'm glad that someone decided to wall some of ABe's artwork. :D

    kekeke, typical grunge colors XD but great effects, tho that brown box on top of the left guy's head is bothering me...
    the mix of soft and rough textures surprisingly blends in vewry well, plus i like the text :3

    This particular BG is probably one of your best ones! There are so many different types of texture that it should be enough to keep anyone busy for a while. It even has that errie feeling needed for this type of image/wall. It truly is awsome. Even the type treatment is nice. The black with the slight outer glow and the reduced transparency of white behind goes well with the contrasting BG and foreground image.

    Now onto the bad stuff, j/k XP But seriously...Even though they may be evenly spaced on the wall, the words seem different lengths apart from the characters. Maybe move "apart" a little closer to the girl since the space between seems really large. The texture overlay on the characters skins is creepy and awsome but that one spot on the guys face is way too sharp/clear. Try to blur that little part to match the rest of the image. Other than those two little things, I really love this wall!! XD

    EDIT: Did you paint that BG yourself and then scan it? What kind of paint was it? Excellent skills!

    big bro... you do one of the best grunges on mt... wow O_O
    a creepy wallie, but awesome in its own way!!
    the scan and the bg go together so well... just love how it blends in together...
    wonderful wallie as usual. *fav*

    It's very interesting, though I don't like the image.

    Wuh. o_0 All praise to be said has already been taken. By biri, first poster, no less. I'm especially impressed by your contrast between sharp and soft on the figures' skin. :) Top work, very unique (which is great for a grunge wall). Btw, what font did you use? :x Great choice.

    I haven't seen twisted flesh-forming like this outside of DeviantART before.
    You anime grunge wallpapers are definitely among the best and most original. :)

    i like the texture on this...to me, it kinda shows frailty of the image like an old piece of paper, so great job on the grunge.

    Woah.... *shiver* That's somewhere between amazing and creepy. I really love the grunge-y feel to it, amazing work!!

    Wow, nice grunge wallpaper again.
    This one is really intimidating though, with the decomposing bg and chars.
    Thanks for sharing.
