Hi... :D ... First a 'small' list of resources... :D

Background Text (Big paragraphs in the background) and Inspiration: Betrayal
Image source: Scan from MT by Knightoflain
Textures: 2 from ImageAfter.com
Brushes: Fractal Swirls by Scully7491; Porcelain Curls and Ruritania Curls by Sakurakira; SM BorderisM by Smashmethod; Nighty Sky Brushes by Crashdowngrrl

Well I think that's all... I will check later to see if I forgot something... :)

What can I say... the minute I saw this picture I had to do something with it... I tried for a while but nothing I did seemed to please me... Sometines I can be such a perfectionist... :D
... So I dropped that for while until the day I was browsing through MT and found out about the Grunge-Side Group Betrayal Contest... I just thought the image fit perfectly with the emotions involving this theme... Well, to tell the short story... Some of the concept of the original wallpaper didn't see the day of light... part because of the style of the image... The technique I wanted to do looks better on photos... I'm not going to say what is... Because I don't want to ruin the surprise... :D ...Since I still plain on doing it... :D

I think that's it... I may edit the post later if I feel that's something missing that I did like to write... I just got back from college... and I can feel I headache coming... :(

Thanks ShiNN84, Rebel-Soul-Kaze, Chani and Samanosuke89 from the MTn00bclub and WallersClub for leaving a comment on how I could improve the wallpaper... :hug:

Comments, favs, critiques... :D ... are all welcome... :D

    Yay, a Lain wallie from my fav member ocelot! :) The text all over the BG and the character looks great and the blue grunge-like designs are a joy to look at! :D Also, Lain looks very kawaii, ina serious way since she's holding this scissors! Must be something significant, I guess! Well, keep up the good work, ocelot! This is a definite fav for me! ;)

    It's okay to be a perfectionist. It's what got you this really cool pic of Lain. :)

    Aw finally! I was wondering if you were going to submit this one or not :)

    Well I'm obviously fav'ing this one, I liked it during the "work-in-progress" and I like it even more in its "complete" version :). Keep up the good work my lady!

    Ahh that's a very good Lain wallie. You nicely matched the colours of the bg with the scan and it turns out in a very nice overall composition. I really like the fontwork it adds to the angst of your work. I was a bit surprised to see you tuned the scan horizontally - but it looks good this way, creates the feeling of resignation and despair, a very dark mood. The only thing that bus me are the borders i guess there's too much of them and it adds some heaviness to the wallie. Still - great work. Thank you a lot for turning my scan into such a magnificent wallie.

    whoa, creeped the hell out of me. (but in a good way, of course)
    maybe because i've been feeling paranoid lately.
    the girl looks so real to me, kinda like ff.
    you make walls for lain too?
    you're a really good waller.
