Haha! Another wall done. It hasn't been long since my FMA one. Now on to the wall.

This WAS originally suppose to be a collab between me and bromitha, but he dropped out:
(melodic hard = Bromithia)
[22:28] melodic hard: it was too hard
[22:28] melodic hard: ;-;

The only thing I'll credit him for is cleaning the scan but that was essentialy it. Since it's sky, RENTON IS BUSTING OUT MAD WAVING SKILLZ. The clouds come from alot of brush with 1-2 stock photos as reference. The black building in the lower part came from a tracing of the opening seqeuences. The funky green stream was done with extreme overlaying and smudging tools <3. but I still think it's too empty, if you have any crit or suggetsion Please! Do post them.

    ehehe... I don't think it's empty... in fact, I'm gonna add it to my faves!

    The clouds are beautiful... lol XD
    and yes, the extraction seems to be well done...
    and OMG that green light thingy... O.O
    yeah, smudge tools, eh?
    but the building.... er... it doesn't look like one... or maybe it's just my eyesight... lol

    empty? empty? hell no. It's really beautiful with all the colors. Very lively wall, i haven't since any looks this lively for a while. wow....I just love the blue sky and the green jet, every awsome.

    I love the green movement tail gate thing following the surf board but i just dont get ehr bottom left part of the wall, Is it a structure or something abstract...you could put more of that green tailgate or could be clouds, his hands could be touching it....

    But noentheless the wall is great...Good job! :)

    LoL... I was hoping for this long-talked about collab <_<
    meh, why did Brom quit anyways?

    the walls is nifty,.. with dazzling colors,... and some astounding cloudscape, but yes, it's kinda empty... I think the effect alone can be a very focal point of interest in this, but maybe it lacks certain details.. such as luminosity, and particle effects....
    to make it more luminous and eye-catching, I think you should use some 'Color dodge' layer instead of 'Overlay', and make some bursting particle effects around the green stream... you can rely on scattered brush technique for this purpose...

    the scan is clean indeed, but the color seems to be a bit, odd..? I think there should be more of Yellow and Red channel to make it less magenta-ish..

  7. Miriya May 12, 2005

    Congrats ^_^

    eureka 7! banzaaaaaaai!. Too bad Brom had to drop the collab lol, I was cheering for him and he's shown me his past concept for this wallpaper that was a bit different. I still like how it come out tho, maybe it's a bit "plain" or simple in a way, but I like how you managed to do the light stream effect. And it's the first Eureka 7 wall (mine will be the second :D), weeeha!

  9. Limality May 12, 2005

    Erm only thing i could rant about is how fscking pale renton looks XD >_> either brom fscked up or you did something weird to him O_O is he a ghost wave rider? i dun think so >< bring more vivid color to him >_> only thing ill say :3 everything else is good, but not good enough to fav =/

    Wow, awesome wall of Eureka seven. Love how you made the background of the clouds and sky as well as the clean image scan of Renton. Though for some reason he looks a bit too purple... also the trailing is done quite alright though from my perspective the trailing looked as if it came from painting and could have some more detail added onto it to catch the eye. Still overall well done on it.

    refreshing~ great overall feeling and composition
    I like the the anime style <3 and the colors are gorgeous, the text style is awesome too XD

    The bg is purdily well done and surprisingly I like the green wave, good job on that ^_~
    clouds are quite nice, but they needed maybe a little bit of contrast on the top left corner~other than that i like em
    the shadow is quite ugly tho and needs more blending work, and I reallly dont know what the hell the yellow line is doing there

    I think the entire wallpaper looks oversaturated, in a way. I don't really like how the clouds looks, but I guess they work. The building looks meh with all of the white cloud crap on top of it, I don't really think that blends in ... that well. I would've liked my color for the tower :( but whatever. I think more tech could be used on it ... but I guess that;s just because the lack of techy brush sets? If you would've waited to submit, I could've given you mine !

    For the better parts, I LOVE the green stream behind his board, that's totally awesome :D The text looks nice also.

    Overall it's a pretty good wallpaper, g'job Kozu.

    Great wallpaper. The only thing I hate about it is the "building," which just looks plain ugly compared to the rest of the wall. Good try. :)

    Also, the green stream thingy = greatest thing ever.

  14. harakiri May 13, 2005

    Wow, finally someone made a wallpaper of this damned cool scan drawn in this great style (*Yoshida-fan desu*).
    I love your concept and the light trace is well done too. Goes straight onto my desktop.

  15. Frosty May 14, 2005

    looks really cool.
    got a nice little trail going on too.
    nice work.
    *9.4 and Grade AA* for a great looking wallie.
