Another throwaway wallpaper.
I was browsing series scans for absolutely no reason at all, and found a pair of scans by Ace in the Big O section. A little stitching together, some dark noise and brushwork, and a title later, we have this wallpaper. I just really liked the city background with its tall skyscrapers, the dome, and whatnot.
I was aiming for a dirty film-print, film-noir feel for the image. It's purple because, uh, that's the color of Big O itself... Hm, that's right, the original background had a bit of a purplish tint to it so I kept it.
The title comes from a track on the Big O drama CD, "Brick Ballades" which is the saxophone, jazzier version of "Apologize" from the first soundtrack. I had fun relistening to my Big O mp3s (minus the drama tracks) and remembering how lovely and soulful the piano pieces were.

Decided to make it more film noir and format the image as a film stripe.

    Wow the big O is such a remake wally series to make cos of its classic quality and because no one has ever walled this too much but i love it.... The textures and filmsrip movement suites this all together and the purple is beautiful!
    Nice job Tama! :)

  4. Lana3007 Mar 13, 2005

    oh, it's a nice wallpaper! The textures are great, there are hardly any Big O walls out there and it's a pretty good series. The scan of Rojer and Angel is really nice, I really like their pose. Great job, I really like it.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, this is hot. Big O gets nowhere near the lovin' it deserves. XD Very sexy Tama, it's on my desktop right now. Everyone knows that Roger is teh win. XD Beautiful architecture and background work, it's quite mesmerizing. ^_^

    Kudos, Tama-san, for making an awesome Big-O wallie! ;) The series is sooo underrated, and Roger Smith, Dorothy, and Angel are such great leading characters! Anyhoo, I like how you added teh films stripes on the BG, it cleverly signifies what Big-O is really all about! Also, the grainyness of the BG also creates the illusion of a film noir movie oh so nicely! XD Wish I knew what the ending of the series really meant, I was so very confused! @_@

    Wow, it's so pretty XD
    I really dig the old city style bg and the fog/smoke coming off the ground, it gives off an eerie mood. Makes me want to go watch Big O again XD Thanks for the nice wallie!

    a-w-e-s-o-m-e grunge wallie..
    you're nuts to call it a throuwaway wall... you are truly nuts. *picks it up from the rubbish bin*
    Tama likes purple? >__<
    Anywayz, the charas don't have that impact, but the bg does.
    The textures and the detail in the wall just astonishes me.
    Looks just awesome...
    great job tama!

    I hate Big O--hate it hate it hateithatehatehate--but your wall is too nice to ignore. It makes the second Big O wall I've downloaded, and that's out of over 2000 in my collection overall! Siggghhhh...it must be nice to have the luxury of being able to throw away walls...I'm still working to be worthy of the trashcan... anyhoo, +favd.

  14. urgannagru Mar 23, 2005

  15. ThaIsland212 Apr 01, 2005
