Artist Comment

Our achievements speak for themselves. What we have to keep track of are our failures, discouragements and doubts. We tend to forget the past difficulties, the many false starts, and the painful groping. We see our past achievements as the end results of a clean forward thrust, and our present difficulties as signs of decline and decay. - Eric Hoffer

I tried to make justice to the great scan by Novastar824 here: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/34811/

I am sorry markjo for taking away the green. I dedicate this wall to you.
Some decaying texture used with a lot of merging and layers of color. I hope I got the effect of disolving, decaying, destructive rusty look...

Back to the dark ages... enough with the clean looks of scenery... lol :)
Enjoy and reflect...

    this is really really gorgeous!!!

    the coloring is done really nicely, and the splashes of rust are neat too.

    *wants brushes too*

    Looks great denier. The grunge textures give the wall that old and worn out appearance only thing that could probably use is the text like techno mentioned. Enlarge it more and darken the color.

    The way you turned this peacful scan into a n image of decay is frightening.... great grunge, i wouldn't expect something like that done from that image. On the othr hand Yoshitoshi Abe's works are perfect for this kind of work, and haibane with all it's hidden darkness and sorrow is even moe then apropriate. Like we all have our inner deamons, unseen from the outside and just in the moments of weakness they glimpse for a while in yhe corner of our eye, making us decay... ripe with it... These are the first impresions of mine. I guess the whole image could have been a bit darker (not in mood, just in brightness) other than that its really neat.

    wow this wall is awesome. im certain markjo will be pleased.

    when i first viewed this wall at its full resolution i was immediately drawn to the background. although yellow appears to be a light color for such a grunge wall. i really like how it turned out.

    another incredible fresh wallpaper DernierCri.

    "It is from our weakness where we are strong..." beautifully done as always Dern, the death and decay really blends with the image cos its just becomes one beautiful wally...Nice fava wall mate! :)

  9. Aa-chan Feb 15, 2005

    Another stunning piece :) .
    The grungy look of the wall is brilliant and the lighted areas come out really well. I won't say anymore, most has already been said.
    Awesome :) .

    Haibane Renmei always has such beautiful art, and so always makes some beautiful wallies... thanks for sharing this, it really is beautiful :)

  11. RaXiv Feb 15, 2005

    indeed Haibane Renmei is a quite nice piece of art. However for me You`ve rotten this pic too much which took the delicate part of the whole picture... i would give it 6/10 becouse of it. However i love the idea [like every1 one yours!] and the overall note is 8/10. For future if You are making a "whole scan wall" try to secure what it has to say by original.. however this is my goal. Iam trying to help ^^ always with ya Dernier! Peace ^^b

  12. markjo Feb 15, 2005

    I am really lost for words... Thank you soooooo much! You know I have this thing for art-like wallpapers and I am obsessed (don't know for what reason) with textures...
    One more thing, the wallpaper was going to be my favourite the moment I saw it, even before I read the dedication.

  13. vampyre Feb 15, 2005

    Love ur style! Sooooo Cool! XD XD XD cann't wait for add my fav' ^^~

  14. Kotter Feb 15, 2005

    This is the second version of this scan changed into wallpaper and I have to admit that it's much more interesting. It's quite curious that you used yellow to show something as morbid as decay. It's definitely my favourite.

  15. StarCentury Feb 15, 2005

    (*Star-kun doing a double-take*) Oh, I thought I just ran into an art museum, because this painting is truly extraordinary!..... Wait, this is an anime wallie??? Get outta here! o_0 DC, you surprised me with this piece, I really though this was a real painting! ^_^' Man, you're skills are top notch, I like the fact that the whole BG looks like a Silent Hill game! XD Marvelous, indeed! [+ 2 favs] ;)

  16. Spriggan Feb 17, 2005
