I always come back to walling Kino, it seems -- I have at least 3 other Kino wallpaper concepts sketched out for later. I had the image of Kino extracted and cleaned from the original poster scan for several months. Originally I wanted to redraw the original background with the jacket, due to its significance in the series, but I never got around to finishing it. I came back to it and instead decided to just do a simple textured wallpaper. I found the map image off of ImageAfter and the compass from StockExchange. Numerous layers and blending modes later, and the addition of some textures, and we have a somewhat darker wall than is my usual wont for this series (and no canvas either!) The title came at random because I wanted something that went with the map/direction theme, and Kino always seems to be going into uncharted territory...

Why: For something entirely different, try this slick, stylish, vector-type Naruto wallpaper. With only 3 colors (black, grey-white and blue) and a hip style (diagonal, with a nice separation of the two sides/yin-yang of the character,) this is a wonderful wallpaper that deserves way more notice.

    The blending is very nice in this wallpaper, and the textures are really easy on the eyes. As usual, a great wallpaper! Keep up the good work.

    Great job b^^d

    Ahh, great job keeping to the theme of travelling. The transparent map and compass layers works well. I really like the "old" feeling when looking at the combination of the orange and and brown.

    Wow! Tama you did a good job on this. He looks like some relic hunter to me. BG is very unique. Overall I can say this is a 8 out of 10. Keep it up! ^_^

    I was particularly fascinated by the background - is it one map or several different? I kinda noticed Greek names and Australian...

    Love the map. Sort of looks like he's about to roll the stone off of Jesus's tomb. hehe. Good work.

    Slick, stylish, hip??? Excuse my while I go poke a needle in my head to deflate myself.
    Many thanks for the plug Tama-neko. I really do appreciate it.

    Moving along, I'm loving the map/compass theme. It really fits with Kino. Great blending of the character and textures as well.

    hey, very cool. i love the map background, you did an excellent job on that! :)

  12. bbls Jun 27, 2005

    the blending of the scan with your background is quite seamless, and i luv the texture and overall brownish hue of your wall as it adds a relic-type feel to your wall. the concept with the map and compass is quite creative and ties all the elements of your wall together very nicely.

  13. Aplos Jun 27, 2005

    WOW! The background is really cool and very detailed and you manged to get the character to match the background or vice versa (haven't seen the original pic) very nicely.

  14. shinorei Jun 28, 2005

    i wuv the texture of the wall, and the brownish hue blends nicely with everything in it.
    I wuv it! *pokes* The compass with the blended map is very well made and detailled.
    Everything blends together are perfectly made for each other. (scan+background) +fav

    oh god.. tama and her kino addiction XD XD XD
    that's so clever using a map on the bg to represent kino's travels!
    well, i seem to say the same thing every time.. but the texture's so good and i luv your concepts (no matter how many kino or FMA walls you make xD)
    looks so so good.. go tama! *fav*

  17. sakura-tenshi Jul 07, 2005

    wow, the background is really nice, and i love the vintage effect you gave to it. Keep up the great work!

  18. Hosoji Oct 11, 2005

    Great job, the compass in the background fits with Kino no Tabi perfectly! I also love your use of color and texture in this one, great ^_^
