I felt like you lost that precise ability -- to gaze into it and contemplate -- when the background was lightened. It became more about the image of a building and less about the concept. Regardless, many thanks for your words and advice. (:
It reminds me of a manga i read time ago, sadly i can't remember how it was called. It was about time travel stuff, but really unique, and the protagonist were in a high building taking cover from a black "tsunami" (which was the time).
This is nearly a year old, but it's because I wanted to read the manga first! Unfortunately, I never did. Do you know where I can find it? (I realise that I could have asked you this ages ago, but I haven't really been commenting overly much on deviantART.)
Oh hey No problem because of the late answers, it took me my time to find the name of the manga anyway. I found it quite easily on Mangafox for example. Google searching "Sprite manga" already shows the right results, at least for me. Hope you'll find it, like it, and see the part that made me remember the manga.
