you can access last month's memes here

http://www.vitaa-designs.net/THEwaller/images/2/memes/logo.jpg
This month's sample meme has been graciously done by Gideon, because I was lazy :D.

Your memetic task is to give us 6 - 12 of your own walls with a short definition of why you did what you did for each. Your definition of each piece should include 3 - 5 characteristic factors. They don't have to be lengthy or anything space-consuming like that; something short and sweet will do the job just fine. But don't just say "The scan was pretty 8d," because, while that's certainly a factor, it's generally a given. And boring.

This also isn't the time to tell us your piece is a vexel/vector/re-paint/result of your cat landing on the keyboard. We can already see HOW you did the wall, we want to know how you define it (what influences do you see in your own wall, what stories can you tell about the characters, what styles did you use). Think of it more like an art class where you have to hang your piece on the wall and then explain your vision it to everyone else. Try to be as specific as possible.

Rules
(1) Image must be 1200px wide and no more than 1500px high.
(2) Meme will be resized to 615px wide to post in the archives as preview format.
(3) Must include the above logo somewhere in your meme. It should be big enough as to be legible in the preview format.
(4) Must write your name below Self-Define.
(5) Must label your WIPs and somehow credit the original series/mangaka.
(6) Submit to the Meme Thread. These are the only memes that will be uploaded to the archives.


Here's Gideon's!

Comment on new techniques you used or any inspirations. And like the main vision or goal of the wall too. :D What are some of the techniques you used that help communicate your vision? (like lighting, mood, lineart style, colors, style, etc)

lol its also meant to be reflective--maybe you werent conciously inspired before by something, but now you can see how close your wall was to that influence. think about it like critiquing your own wall (almost) >D

spanner is almost finished, im just being really slow because i havent finished coding EDD's upload system yet lol

Lol Tens you didn't have to be that technical in your descriptions. You can make them fun too.

I couldn't find any other words to describe my walls and their purpose haha.

Especially my string of walls since my Ga-rei Zero wall all have technical experimentation/exploration associated with them DX. Only wall I enjoyed from beginning to end was my last wall. My other walls I needed to strap myself to my chair and starve myself. Only until I got a good amount of vector work done on my wallpapers could I reward myself with food. Only inspiration I have when making the walls is, "the scan was pretty 8d" but I can't put that can I. LOL!

Now that's what I call the Photoshop diet. >D No seriously, I lost 5 lbs on a wall once. D8

But don't you still have fun doing them and learning new stuff? It's kinda cool to look back and see what you've improved and what you tried to do for past walls.

was trying to work on my Range Murata WIP to see if I can stir up some motivation to wall (failed) and so the text-work from that sort of carried over. it really doesn't fit the look of the meme but i can happily say that although i don't feel like walling i still had fun sticking text together. xD

I still have fun doing some parts on my wall.

Of course it's fun trying out the new stuff when I get to it :). I like doing line work that some people dread. I hate doing the shapes for base color because it's boring. I so loathe fine details that are just scribbles on a character and I need to redraw them. One example would be my Chromed Shell Regios wall where everything looked like total ass. All the details were just blobs and nothing was shaped very well. Even though I got over the hard part. I just lost interest in that wall. It's kind of the same for my Kuramoto wall. It's a beautiful scan but the headpiece's details are just scribbles and I don't feel like dealing with it haha.

Generally I have fun near the end of vectoring a character because I already did the base shading to have a guide on what to do. So I can let loose on vexeling and have fun just like in painting. Another reason is because it's almost done lol. Oh yeah, I hate doing backgrounds :(. But it was fun doing the background for Benevolence since I made it similar but different to suit my tastes.

I'm being stalked by Kitten! D8

I'm still confused at where you draw the line between vectoring and vexelling there, Tens. To me unless it's been rasterized, it's still all vectors. lol
I think I have the most fun after getting the lines done, then it's smooth sailing with painting. :D

Lol, sorry for confusing you.

My base colors and line work are usually vector layers (scalable color layers). When I vexel, most of the shading are vector masks with raster gradients so I have more control over blending. They are also mixed with some that use layer effects to enhance some areas.

Sometimes I use the term "vectoring" to refer to drawing in a program with shapes while it may or may not be correct technically (like that last sentence in my previous post). So in the end, I will still be confusing you but I will try my best to be as technical as possible in the future.

That's a cool entry asa, it's unique haha. Also, glad you finished your meme Kitten! I knew you could do it.

Lawl ah now I see. I can accept the raster gradients. Before I thought you were doing some illustrator techniques or gradient overlays and still calling them vexels, lol. I actually prefer this technical explanation (write this stuff on your walls!). :D But yea it's a fuzzy area to differentiate so many new people will still be confused with vectors.

Asa....it's kinda hard to read some of those. D8

lol sorry vitaa D: i didn't realize until now that i'd filled that part with the wrong shade of gray. i'll fix it. (the story behind why i came to recreate the logo is a stupid one so don't ask.) and fishy-boy IS the priority right now. like i said i wanted to stir up some motivation and whenever i need that, fooling around with text helps. i am not slacking off. ;__;

@ tens: haha thanks. i was seriously just making a list for the yoite one and it just...happened.
