i guess i've never looked at the full version of this before thinking it was a simple leaf (along the lines of your ladybug walls), and didn't realize it was a 911 wall. T_T that's very sweet. :hug:

Very clean and well done, the yellow tack is the only thing that seems odd to me in the image, its pinned to the floor?:D (Big Grin)

I think this is exceptionally well Done...

So much time and effort,Its evident your heart
and soul went into this...Its incredibly simple
yet holds so much depth and feeling...

We were so shocked and helpless...I see the
tack as the false sense of security we love
to delude ourselves with...Its Ironic how little
control we really have over our lives...And
all we could really do was cry, Innocence

Its also how Ironic that it has become a disgusting
battleground for polatics...I dunno man...

I only see hear a true heart, for innocent people
who didn't have to die...

A masterpiece...

This would be good for you to put up for that
tribute Spyed(i think) is putting together for

I'd say it says it all...

Take Care,

I first saw this on your site (ages ago before I was active here on dA)
and I downloaded it...
it's still here on my comp, and altho I rarely use it... (doesn't match the colour theme :P (Razz) ), I open it now and then... and get the same feeling as I first saw it...
the vibrant green... is just brimming with life...
it portrays the living... shedding tears for the lost souls...
it's lovely.. how something so simple... could be so full of meaning, so full of overwhelming emotion
it's amazing how a weeping leaf can tell a tragic story

a great contrast to most of the nine eleven wallpapers, this is bright and in a way, to me, it gives someone a sense of comfort because it is so bright.

very emotional, my heart also goes out to them

paroxysm Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2001
one of the aspects of your work that i don't think is appreciated enough has to be the level of ambience you put in it. this is achieved with the glow around your focal point which is quite obvious in this one and adds to the overall feel of the piece. this is top-notch!

Very clean and well done, the yellow tack is the only thing that seems a bit out of place to me.

I like it. It's clean, easy on the eyes, and well designed. A calm look to it, with a meaningful title and purpose. It easily shows time and effort was put into this piece. Very nice.
