Artist Comment

This wall was basically me just fiddeling around with some things. I'm developing concepts for other walls, but first I needed something to experiment with. So, I sought to improve upon the things needed for my other idea - my sky backgrounds, ocean BGs, and lighting effects. While I am happy with the wall, I feel as though something is missing XD . Keep in mind this wall was an experiment ... and that I have a tendancy to be a perfectionist, so excuse the ramblings about what I dislike XD .

Anyway, the scene is between Chi and Hedeki having another cute moment together. The setting is at a guardrail less balcony overlooking the ocean. I've got a thing for lighthouses and to better balance off that side, I've placed a little island and a, well lighthouse. Little light particles and particles from the ocean float through the scene to add more warmth and a peaceful glow. Various spots as you may have noticed are brighter than others due to the beams of light shining in from the side. Little seagulls are also in the BG to enhance the effect of the overall oceanic feel.

Bleh, I've overtextured the pillars and made the shadow side too dark XD . Besides that, I'm happy with the pillar modifications, as well as the floor angle. Floor could probably use more texturing XD .

The original scan had writing, text, advertisements, you name it all over it. I had to re-do some of the areas, as well as patch up some spots. Anoying little bugger in some spots, but well worth it for the final effect.

The "motif" was placed in the left corner as to not disrupt the flow of the wall. I've been trying to think of ways to prevent rippers from thier evil deeds and placing a hard to modify "motif" on walls seems to help, as well as signing the bottom. Bleh, I hate rippers had to deal with one today. Sometimes, its good to just throw some people into lakes and never return.

Simple wall really. I've seen a lot of ocean walls lately though ... oh well XD . Anyway, other stuff:

Specs for You:
Time Taken: 5 Hours
Layers: 35 Layers
Created With: Adobe Photoshop
Techniques Used: Re-CGing, CGing, Light Effects, Stock (floor & pillars)
Scan Source: Anime Project Alliance
Aspiring Mafia Plug:
Member: SharinganKnight
Wall: Punishment Devine
Reason:This wall definately deserves more looking into ... good concept design and mood. The dark ambience really is something to be seen.

And now for a nice warm fuzzy feeling :) .

    i only dont like the font in the wall - the font for the credit is okay.. but for the mainly wall you need a font which is romatically ;) nice wall - fav =)

  11. Rella May 13, 2005

    Ooh, that looks really nice. The scan matches the background a LOT but...the font doesn't match it at all. Other than the font, though, everything looks really nice. ^_^

    Overall it's cute, there are still a few things that can be improved:

    - The isle in the background: it's very far so how come that you can see clearly the grass blades? They're incredibly tall for the perspective, don't you think? ;) . I'd suggest redoing the isle with a simple round brush and different layers of shading, and a smudge tool. Using the grass blades brush for things that are this far in the perspective doesn't work convincingly ;)

    - The columns: ok smart blurring is a good way to flatten colours, but maybe you overdid it because there are different areas that look pixelated. Blur them a bit to get the trick ;)

    - Sea: same issue just like the columns.

    Other than those points the concept is ok, and it shows effort and planning. Well done.

  17. Caya Jun 01, 2005

    Ah, this wallie instantly gives me a nice summer feeling^^ Chii looks even more innocent and vulnerable in this picture, since she appears (!) so small in comparison to Hideki. Good work!

  18. ThuyVan Jun 02, 2005

    I LOVE chobits!...and WELL Chii and Hideki makes a really cute couple...but behind it all I have a sad story that makes me cry sighs** but still this wallpaper is very kawaii...^_^
