Well well, I was looking at the Fruits Basket gallery and at all these happy walls, and was thinking that Fruits Basket is not just a happy story...
So that's why I wanted to wall the sad side of Fruits Basket, inspired by the end of the series.

I took a screenshot of Kyo and trace him in Illustrator. Since it was just his face on the screenshot I had to invent some part like the t-shirt that I did with references from other scenes.
And for the background, I did the rain and blurry effects with brushes in Photoshop.
The house is also a screenshot of the series and I painted a bit on it since there was some caracters in front of it.

Enough talking! Enjoy!
Comments and favorites always appreciate :)

    ooooh I like, I like! It's so cool how you made a whole shirt from things that you saw!! Just really awesome. His head looks really big XD. Other than that, I love the effects!

  2. LastDinosaur May 03, 2005

    Very nice vector.. although the shirt proportions look a bit unreal, just how low the shoulders go. Other than that, amazing wall.

  3. Keik May 03, 2005

    This is nice and Ghostly shinie, you should make some Goststory WP with this effect ;)

    vraiment tres bien fait l'effet de pluie

  12. ShiNN May 03, 2005

    Very good job! This is a perfect example on how to succesfully integrate a vector into a background without seeing contrast between the two different styles/techniques. It has a very sad atmosphere and the rain is flawlessly realized, but I like about it is how you managed to make Kyo look wet by using a soft semi-transparent white brush all over him and by adding water drops. That's attention to details, and it's something that appearently we don't see often here on MT.

  13. Dragus May 03, 2005

    u have killer talent anji and this wall looks great, i hope u are getting enough credit.

    Thanks for sharing this wall.

    bravo c'est vraiment magnifique

    too bad i'm on a scool comp atm, cuz else i'd have more time to take a closer look at the wall... also my reviewing time is very limited u_u; i'll sure edit this post later on. (i'll fav it though since i already love it, and i want to access it easier when i get home tomorrow XD) anyways, i'm very impressed by this wall, (more comments sure will follow)

    Quote by ShiNN84That's attention to details, and it's something that appearently we don't see often here on MT.


    There we go, neko's edit... well actually i don't know much what to say,
    at school i was thinking, "hmm it looks good on 1024x768 lcd screen but what about a 1280x960 crt one? Maybe I could find some minor boo-boos", but i was wrong, luckily. your wall is very monochromatic, as usual. Some like it, some don't, and I usually am not a real fan of that either. But i'll voluntarily make an exception for this splendid wall :) argh the vector turned out so great oO you invented the t-shirt? sugoii na! >_< argh all is perfect, i can't add anymore without quoting others >_<
    The whole thing quite fascinates me, not only because of the care of detail ShiNN pointed out eariler, but for the perfect recreation of the rain scene in Fruit Basket's last episode, which had quite touched me back then. Though, I can't remember much now... Makes me wanna watch FB again for the 3rd time XD

    if i wasn't GA-addicted I'd sure use your wallpaper on my desktop right now... anyways, it's gonna be one of my best favorites... my faved favs XD okay, so, thanks anji for your hard work, i'm pretty sure it must have taken you lots of time to make it this good, and keep it up! :) take care


  18. Nisha May 03, 2005

    wow i really like it! Fruba did need some sad walls. Kto looks so sad. I really like the rain and the house in the background it looks really nice!

  19. Spriggan May 03, 2005

    voila donc le resultat final!! j'aurais du me douter que ton message d'hier cachait quelque chose >_< pis j'lais manquer!!! grrr lol anyway....toute une difference hein , incomparable avec le ''preview'' ^_^' ...tres simplement , du tres jolie travail Anji! particulierement la facon dont t'as retoucher le SC! mais chui pas surpris XP hehehe ..a pars ca , c'est peut etre juste moi..mais le bras/cote gauche de Kyo est douteux! yen a tu un?? parce que son chandail semble etre un peu trop large pour ca taille....c'est peut etre juste la fatigue aussi =_= lol
    belle job! :)

  20. phantomwise May 04, 2005

    Wow, you did an amazing job on this :D And you're right, there is a huge lack of sad wallpapers in the Fruits Basket section.

  21. llilliathari May 04, 2005

    J'imagine le boulot qu'a du te prendre ce wallpaper, je suis vraiment epatee.
    L'effet pluie est bien realise sur Kyo-kun (^^) et sur le fond, seul petit reproche, la partie en haut à gauche est un peu trop sombre selon moi...
    Encore une fois, super boulot!

    J'attends le prochain. :D

  22. KittyCyn May 04, 2005

    Wow! Your Wallie returned gr8!!!!! No words to describe how beautiful it ish! ;)

    Also you're right, I've only seen happy Fruit Basket wallies, and it's a good idea to make the other side of the story, well you did great!
    Also making his shirt and rest of the image
    +Favie :) Keep it up*

  23. Takeshi1589 May 06, 2005
