Artist Comment

Of all the character designs in Gankutsuou, Haydee is by far my most favorite. There's something about her elfin beauty, her shimmering glamorous dresses, and her floral hair that makes me wish I could be her...without all that ugly past. I've been wanting to make a wallpaper with Haydee playing her harp in a Greco-Roman rotunda for ages, and finally found a good image from Gankutsuou Complete. Although I was disappointed at the small size of pictures in the illustration gallery, that's when tracing really shows its potential. I had fun using a lot of images from the official website to pattern Haydee, along with a few floral patterns of my own.
The background is a combination of stock and drawing; the ocean and sky, plus the birds, come from several stock photos, as well as the top of the columns. The rest of the rotunda and the bush were drawn in Photoshop. Textures, well, I love texturing. Too much, probably. Oh well.

    This is really nice. What I like about this wallpaper is the calm atmosphere conveyed, the textures are really soft, and the patterns you used for Haydee are really elegant... it really makes it feel like she's in a place somewhere in Greece or Italy, near the sea.

    oh...its that girl.....nice vector as allways, like the concept and the atmosphere. texture and patterns are matching well. well done~!

    I really love the atmosphere this wall has, Tama-Neko --- very soothing. And there's nothing wrong with liking textures when you use them well. ;) The one thing that bugs me, however, is the depth/realism of the columns. It doesn't seem to match well with the rest of the flat image.

    Wow its sort of indian and malay cultured with so much style everywhere. I love the coors, atmosphere and floral atterns everywhere, you are truly great in making these wall with this kind of series Tama...Great job! :)

    So...unbearably... beautiful... There's something about this that really appeals to me (I've never seen the anime..).
    As usual, you did a terrific job! :D

    This is a truly incredible wallpaper. I've seen the whole fake-Greek rotunda thing done before, but it always looked fake. The top of your rotunda is a little off, but otherwise this really fits the mood, and looks extremely realistic. The overall mood of 'unchained melody' fits the somewhat melancholy landscape, as she gazes off to a distant land - very poetic, and musical. I don't really know what else to say - my first comment on IRC sums it up: hot damn!

    wow this wall is stunning. The design of this wall looks like a piece of asian art. You also used a wonderful scan

  13. KittyCyn Jun 15, 2005

    Gr8! Tama! I like your work a lot! :) What I like the most in this wallie is that it's not an abstract one...the plants look beautiful also the textures you've applied...
    Ummm...the colors give the wallie an Antique appearance that together with the textures ans scan make a very elegant piece of work!
    A Favie for this very good looking one! ;)
    Keep it up ^_^

    You've been on a Gankutsuou walling frenzy tama (not that it's bad of course.) Love the style, looks like an old photo. The faded colors and textures really add to that look. I just don't have the real words for this, but it's truly beautiful.

  15. MagicianFairy Jun 15, 2005

  16. bbls Jun 19, 2005

    this is an amazingly stunning and original wall...i luv the textures and the "old" look of the wall. the rotunda looks very realistic, and you really captured a reflective, thoughtful mood in your wall... :D

  17. Naquira Jun 19, 2005

    I really fell in love with this wall :) I absolutely adore the authentic look on this, and the character looks so elegant in this wallpaper. Nice chosen colors also :) Adding to favorites!

    A great colour combination - though being full of different colours, it's still somehow balanced & soothing for the eye.

  19. Sigourney Jun 19, 2005

    Beautiful *_*... it looks like a painting... I adore the patterns on her dress and hair... simply -> amazing~<3... though *just noticed* the columns are a bit off >.>... you can clearly see the diffrence between the top and the middle part ^^;... other than that -> I like it a lot ;)...
