Full-View looks the best ... tis a tad funky looking in thumbnail format...

Thought I should try something that was a bit odd a work a bit with energy and light. I'm growing quiet tired of typing all of the technically aspects of the wall, so from now on I'll leave most of that in the specs section and just type what the wall represents. Stories are far more fun and influential anyway. I felt the need to do something involving a warrior or samurai, and came upon this scan and instantly knew what I wanted to do with it. Much like a vision the idea just popped into my mind.

I've got a thing for odd looking skys so don't poke me about it XD . The red in the sky compliments the red piping of his armour and serves as the primary color of this wall. It then gradually fades into a mysterious fog-like mass that is supposed to resemble something that is in a dream-like manner. Fog slowly drifts onto the slanted roof as the night air begins to cool.

In this darkness, a warrior waits drawing magic into his sword and into his left hand, as the wind blows by revealing a battle torn cape energy is slowly accumulating, waiting for his dream to come true. The dream all warriors have, the dream all those who have wanted to aspire to greatness have, the dream to ...

Reason: Detailed and moody, with a sense of darkness, one can easily see the amount of effort that went into it's creation. Staring at it evokes thoughts of my own that pull up memories.

    OO Great portrayal of Kurogane. Yes, I do watch the series weekly. I really like the effect on the sword. It makes is seem so much more powerful. The crimson sky and the shredded cape thing looks awesome! Very nice!

    Fuwahh.. x_x I really love the surreal look of this wall~<3 I've told you before you handle colour gradients very well. XD And the flat (wait 'smooth' is a better word XD), smart-blurred-ish sheen the roof has is awesome~<3 *laughs* <-random queen. :D *sets as desktop wallie* Love it! Mm, the delicate swordsparkles contrast nicely with the bold red, and Big Strong Kurogane. :D

    *disappears again* x_x

    hmm..it would be a great wally!! but u should recg the scan...i can see a white-ish line in the middle of the wally...and it's a bit disturbing:S but the bg looks very cool:)

  7. Azstraph Jun 26, 2005

    http://www.crimsonsuns.com/images/smilies/not%20worthy.gif, me bowing to your superior coloring skills.

    Added to my favorites!

  8. zaira Jun 26, 2005

    nice scan! though the white lines on the middle distracted the whole wall.. try removing it or as susan-sama said recg it! for the bg.. i love the looky abstract sky but maybe try to make a darky colors so it will fits the clothes of the scan but overall nice try! XD

  9. Raiyne Jun 26, 2005

    Very nice. :D I especially like the background and the effect around the sword and character's fist. Good job.

  10. Sunira Jun 26, 2005

    Whoah you plugged me! :cries: I feel good. :) thanks a lot. ^_^
    Now back to commenting on your wallpaper...
    The hints of a space scene are very captiviating through the small empty spaces in the scan. The effect of power in the sword is also well done and it flows smoothly with the image. :)

    Nice wallpaper Taniiee, the only things I don't like about it is the white outline around the dudiiee. It makes it look unprofessional in a way.
    The scan looks kinda bad as well, maybe blurring it or vectoring it?
    the sky and the house looks damn awesome darrrling ..

    ^-^ love it ..

    ><;; at first I thought the guy was vincent from final fantasy vii, so i was all hyped up... <33

    WAI!!!!!!!!! KUROGANE IS SOOOOOO COOL!!!!!! You did a fantastic job on this wallpaper!!!!! *swishes hand to forehead* I salute you! x_x x_x I wish I could make equally cool wallies... *sniff* Mine tend to be too simple...
    I love the way you made energy seem to flow into his fist and blade... and the colors fit harmoniously... but the fact that you flipped the pic about bugs me a bit... whatever, no sweat
    KEEP IT UP!!! I WANT MORE KURO!!!!!!!!! (even though you just found the pic by chance - you make him look REAL GOOD!!!!)

  13. ayaki Jun 26, 2005

    hey, this is quite nice :)
    the color of the sky matches well with Kurogane ^^
    the stars are a great touch...just like little sparkles XP
    the effects around his sword/hand looks kool!~
    but i can see the creases in the middle of his cape...and also on the rooftop too
    other than that, great job >_<b

  14. rocknroll-isgo Jun 26, 2005

    *poke* The sky is odd. :nya:

    Kidding, kidding. I love the sky. Yeah, I'm a sucker for colorful, fantasy backgrounds. Still, it really seems to merge with the scan beautifully. Nice placement of clouds as well --- nothing overdone.

    In the words of a certain someone: Marvelous wall... mmm, yes. :D

  15. kai81220 Jun 26, 2005

    tsubasa is my first manga i ever read! XD
    lol its a great wall of kurogane ^^ id say you did an awesome job on the sky cause the colors are very nice. the planet looks a bit fuzzy though, and the texturing is kinda unclear. the clouds are well done.
    the outer glow on the cape is a nice attempt to imitate the original white outlining of the scan but i think it just makes it look like you extracted it funny =/
    awesome effect on the sword and kurogane's fist.
    overall, nice one tantaga ^^

  16. Haia Jun 27, 2005

    Woah! Coolness at it's best!!! Kuro-chan looks so damn powerful!!! Love the misty on the roof!!! Although I think the roof doesn't blend too well with the red sky............Still this rockz!!! Thankie so so much for sharing this with us!!! I just love it!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~ Cool! +favie

  17. shinorei Jun 28, 2005

    Ooh~! It's Kuro-rin from Tsubasa Chronicle.
    Satisfactory wall but not one of the best ones. For starters, Kuro-rin looks really spooky, what's that expression for? And the colours are not very relaxed but maybe that's what you wanted.
    The red sky looks weird against the red moon. And some parts of the wall doesn't look nicely vectored.
    Anyway, all of these are my personal opinions. Do not be mattered by it. :D

  18. StarCentury Jun 28, 2005

    Woah, Kuro looks surprisingly badass in that stance, Tantaga! o_0 The mood of the background is real epic and red & blue truly blends nicely with the sky! I also like how his cape cover some of the sky for adding the cool factor and the aura around his blade shows that he's ready to attack! Overall, a killer concept for an already excellent wallie, Tantaga! XD

  19. AngelKate Jun 30, 2005

    Oh cool! Really great pic of Kuro-chan!! He looks so powerful, and the background captures the feeling of the wall well. Very nice job!

  20. Electrastar Jul 02, 2005

    This is an awsome wallpaper of my fav Tsubasa character : Kurogane :D I love the sky and the moon, the only thing I find weird is that there seems to be a line in the middle of the scan that kinda makes it look weird, but it's nothing really majord.

  21. Kuai Aug 14, 2005

    I love it its great. Kind of scruffy but still 10/10 nice job ^_^

  22. swordmaster Banned Member Aug 25, 2005

    Great wallpaper, and I like the image of Kurogane you chose--he looks crazy, but then he is crazy.
