Were these my tears
Did I die
The pain is missing
I must have

Back to the good old Saikano art... but still on the dark side. Inspired by OracleAngel 's wallpaper style. Used some texturing, coloring layers and loads of new brushes. The poem if you can call it a poem is mine /i start to like creating those/.

Interesting fact:
i fell in love with the "45 89" brush, simply because strangely enough these the years of communist regime in my country. /1945-1989/ and I tought that will put an extra angle to the wall.

dedicated to all my friends from Poland here at MT.
Enjoy and reflect...

EDIT: thumbs of my walls really sukc lately.. sorry

    A very good shot of the main character and the effects in the background work well with it. It gets harder and harder to compliment your work when it's this good.

    Ooooo, a Saikano wallie by DC! Do I even need to write how beautiful and captivating your details and coloring on the BG and scan are? Oh yeah, I did! XP Anyhoo, it's the truth! Your walls seems to get more elegant! I can't wait for your next one, bet it's as good as this amazing Saikano wallie! ;)

    That's beautiful - you captured the mood of saikano really well. Chise splatterd with blood looks disturbing part god-like, part hellish and i can't tell for sure is it sadness on her face, or just emotion-less coldness. I like the poem you incorporated into the bg - it catches the eye and sets the mood. Great job. And thank you for dedication - dziekuje bardzo (that's thank you in Polish). You're a wonderful artist.

    A very depressing looking Saikano wallpaper, but a good one nonetheless.

    Thanks for this beutifull wall! You are indeed the king of these type of walls! Heh and screw communism i like capitalism :P Thank You! :* :fav+:

    Wow this looks cool ^^.
    like the bg very much and the style in this.
    Really different.
    Like your previous one, this one looks much more of a painting , which in my opinion really great ^^, in term of scan, i feel that the scan dominated the bg u did, in stands in the middle and kinda take away from the great bg/

    my personal fav from this work has to be the bg, I Really like it ^^
    Other than that , great work keep it up ^_^

    Ooo, it's been so long since I downloaded a new Saikano wall...and by one of my favorite wallers to boot! Your style is very inspirational to me. Awesome stuff, +fav'd.

    really nice job on this one and indeed does remind me or OA's stuff but you got some original style goin there imo. also ive never seen a grunge wall with such a big range of colors and work successfully so nice job on that!

    45-89 were the communist years also in Poland. Sometimes, when I tell my friends abroad that we had to have special coupons to buy meat or sugar, they can't believe it... The joys of communism... I don't really miss them.
    Anyway, a great wallpaper - symmetry is always nice and well-looking. I wish the resolution was different since I can't use this one on my desktop.

    hey, cool wallpaper... it really has a lot of emotion in it, i like it. the blood was a nice effect.

  12. Skillzpay Feb 24, 2005

    ahh always great to see saikano walls and ic you're still sticking to the grunge. Imo it would've been nice to see a more dominant color or dark/light theme going. But the grunge work is pulled off well and I especially like the cluttered/chaotic brush work, really fits well with the emotions she had to sort through in the series.

    Hey DC, I heard my name and i was impressed it was similar to my kind of walls....Text wise except the part where you put a mass amounts of grunge into a character to make it fit through the grunge bg...But thats your style!
    Anyway awesome job mate! :D
