Final Fantasy VII Wallpaper: turn away from light...

Final Fantasy VII, Aerith Gainsborough Wallpaper

1600x1200 Wallpaper

Artist Comment

i dont think i ever walled final fantasy before from what i can remember, but when i saw nekkeau's beautiful fanart for aerith, i pretty much couldn't take my eyes off of it. honestly, his work in general is amazing and if you havent done so already, go check it out!
anyways, first thing i did was get his permission to wall this and then i went about thinking of a way to do justice to the image. i felt that if i changed it too much i would actually be taking away from its original beauty then adding anything significant. so i went with more of a simplistic approach. following my previous wall, i tried doing a strong dynamic contrast in the image and made half the wall in complete darkness and the other part in complete light. then i added some light shading tweaks to aerith so that she fit the setting change. finally, i added a light texture with the same text layout as my other walls. and like the others, i got the text from a song, in this case it comes from "Eye" by The Smashing Pumpkins & is off of the Lost Highway OST.
finally, i really got to give credit to nekkeau once again for the beautiful image and thanks for letting a fool like me wall it (and possibly butchering it in the process).

    I love the slight grainy texture you used. I saw the original and the color transition you made was very good. I think you did the original picture justice. Awesome job +fav

    Wow, that is some amazing fanart. And baka, crap... Don't degrade your work, so! It's amazing!!! I knew it was yours the moment I saw it on the front page! (Actually, all I knew was that it had a great thumbnail, but after I saw "crapmonster" next to it, it all clicked and the aethestics and style meshed together. xD ^_~)

    Crapmate...You got to STOP using that green stuff man lol
    if you are butchering this image...Some of us (me included) are desecrating the works of others. Hell man, don't be so hard on yourself. It looks awesome and is coming to be expected of you.

    I think upping the contrasts was a great idea.. especially the way you do it. Very effective, I love the composition and texturing as well.

    Even though I strongly hate Aeris, I agree that this artwork is one of the best depictions of her I have ever seen. I've seen the original piece, and you did an amazing job with touching it up and adding some mood to it. good job!

    Phew, this wall is beautiful. I looked at the original from nekkeau and compared the two side-by-side. I won't call your work butchering. In fact I think you did excellent job of enhancing the character through your astute choice of picking right color, shading and abstract. :D

  24. Electrastar May 09, 2005

    It's very beautiflul. Very nice contrast. I really like it a lot :D
