Artist Comment

I lied. I said my next Gankutsuou wallpaper would feature Haydee, and I now have a scan all picked out for it but after buying the Gankutsuou Complete book and falling in love with the cover I had to wall that first, because the Haydee wall will be a long, involved trace and this would not.
This is based off of the back cover of Gankutsuou Complete and features the main antagonist the Count of Monte Cristo himself. I figured that since I was making one of the front cover I might as well make one of the back cover, too. Besides, the Count is sexy. The original background was a textured leather, and since I already had a set of textures that closely resembled it I was ready to go! The lineart in the background was scanned off the front cover of the guidebook, from the art underneath the slipcover. It features a prominently blazing sun, crossed swords, and the scales of justice. It made sense, considering how justice was not served to the Count in his youth, and hence he turned to alternate routes (read: revenge) to gain it. I was aiming at the style of the opening sequence "We Were Lovers" with its faded browns and stuff.
Since the other wall in this set was "Les Ingenu" or "The Naive" this one had to be the opposite - so I went with "Le Genie" or "The Mastermind" - he certainly is a mastermind, carefully crafting his revenge with an almost fanatical attention to detail.
This wall is designed as a set; see also "Les Ingenus" which features the other main characters, Albert, Franz and Eugenie. You could even dualscreen the wallpapers if you had such a setup; Le Genie on the right and Les Ingenus on the left.
