Meh! A wallpaper about the newest anime, Eureka 7! \o/

This anime has started airing recently, but already had a lot of "hype" around it, and when I got to watch the first episodes I totally fell in love with it. So guess what, I decided to make a wallpaper about it. That was about 2 weeks ago, then I eventually found out that Kozumura and Brom were working as well on a wallpaper about Eureka 7, so my wall was supposed to be the second submission, but then again nat preceeded me and submitted her masterpiece about eureka 7, lol. So this is the third wallpaper in a row about this anime.

The two characters (Renton, the boy, and the girl Eureka) have been completely vectored in Illustrator starting from the original scan, which was mostly covered with text. I planned to vector the whole scan but then I realized that the spread had the central part of the mech missing, so I just vectored Renton and Eureka and invented a new scene for them, keeping the same position they have in the original scan. It took me a week to do both vectors, and I am glad of the results because it looks quite close to original scan :D.

The background has been realized for the most part with the single use of the smudge tool (I still don't know how I did it lol, must be the power of the smudge tool itself, lol), I recreated the same kind of landscape that is shown in the anime with those weird hills, cliffs and slopes. To do that I had to watch the episodes a few times and take a lot of screenies to have some reference on how to draw them. Smudging is fun! lol

Special thanks to Tama-neko who followed my wip and gave very useful crits and tips, and all the other people of mt's irc channel who as well gave their input about this wallpaper.

[edit] Brightened the whole wallpaper a bit, following the suggestions of Yuuna.

    The vectoring is really good and the scene is cool. Note: people should view the entire wallpaper rather than the thumbnail as it doesn't do the finished piece justice ^^ .

    I'm such a sucker for Vectors. >_<
    This has such a crisp look to it, everything about it is great. Excellent job on the background and characters. :)

  5. exentric May 15, 2005

    wow shinn~
    very nice vector and bg indeed.
    the vector looks awesome and the concept of the bg fits the two of em really well. the grass eureka is sitting on looks perfect. but the the err... 'hills' at the back feel somewhat weird.

    all in all, its a good job. nice work~ ^_^

  6. Criox May 15, 2005

    I love the scenery!! ^___^ cut it fits pretty well to the characters... mhmm.. I think that it would be better, if the colours were a bit brighter.. anyway great work ^^+fav

  9. harakiri May 15, 2005

    I love that new anime series - Bones rules xD
    You put very much effort in your wallpaper and it looks quite good. But somehow it is too dark for that series because the cheerful atmosphere got lost.
    Anyway good wallpaper.

  10. dans May 15, 2005

    the vector looks very good and the bg looks very nice.
    keep up the good work. :D

  11. Anjeile May 15, 2005

    hmm...although i dunno much bout this anime, but it looks really simple and nice. ^^ the characters fit in the bg quite well. i think it would look better if the sky was brighter since the characters look kinda bright. and i think the grass should be of a lighter color as well, but maybe that's just me ^^' keep up the great work, shinn!

  12. kai81220 May 15, 2005

    awesome job with the vectoring ^^ looks great. actually i really liked the star feild cause its not too filled up. well done with the scene as well =D nice work shinn ^^

  13. anji May 15, 2005

    Wow this vector doesn't look at all as a vector since it's so detailed.
    Really well done with it. And the simple background does justice to it.
    I really like the color theme and the dark blue of the sky.
    And I also like what you did with the title.
    Keep it up... add it to my fav :)

    Glad to see this wallpaper finally finished! It's been a long journey, but that's what makes it fun, and worthwhile - it's vastly improved each time I see an iteration. I think I've far past my quota of commentary in IRC, but I like the composition of this piece - it's balanced, yet simple and uncluttered by junk (no moon! hurray!) The perspective of the background hills is a little odd, and the stars through the clouds should be dimmer since they're being seen 'through a veil' but otherwise good work!
    Oh, and the text is spiffy.

  15. Rella May 15, 2005

    Wow, I'm impressed! This is so nicely done! The whole scene looks very nice and quiet. I like it a lot. The font matches it too, yay! Good work!

  16. crewcifix May 15, 2005

    i love the cripness of the wall (such a word?)
    anyway, love the colors and love the clear sky. +fav

  18. rocknroll-isgo May 16, 2005

    Good God, this is nice. So smooth... *drools* I love the painting affect on everything. Though my favorite part has to be the night sky: simple and not over cluttered, yet very effective.

    Definite fav Shinn! (eh, what else is new?)

  19. OracleAngel Retired Moderator May 16, 2005

    Havn't seen this serie yet but I will cause your wall made me interested. ^_^
    The vector must have taken so long to make! XO
    Very nice detailed and good looking colors.
    I miss a light source but the moon should be above them if you look at the shadows so I guess you wouldn't see it.
    I like the text logo did you make it on your own?
    Thumbs up!
