Full View cause i said so'

I had a really hard time deciding whether this one was MTworthy or not. It conveyed the emotions I wanted it to but with very few elements. Im not used to making very simple wallpapers but in this case I feel there is an exception, and that I can share it with you.

I've been playing Kingdom Hearts recently and Sora is such a lucid hearted character. I always sensed an inner peace and trust in him that the creators placed very beautifully into his character.

This piece is a reflection of his bright spirit and soft nature. He is standing on a beach and he can see the worlds beyond his horizon but he is content to watch. He knows the true source of happiness and needs not to travel to other places to quench a thirst for satisfaction. His foil Riku, his opposite, firey spirited, uncertain and easily twisted would certainly have set forth to this world long ago.

I spent about a day and a half on and off working on this piece. I find recently I am unable to sit down and complete an entire piece in a couple hour span. Sleeping on it makes me feel better while Im working on certain individual elements. I spent a lot of time getting the water to look realistic. I ended up finding a pattern of waves and then blending them into each other so that I could reuse them across the wallpaper. I then took a skyscape of Seattle and used it as a backdrop to the mist surrounding the calm waters. The mist is the calling of the other worlds, something Sora can resist yet understands. I love the forlorn look in his face.

I think I've talked too much, now onto the creds and then a special wallpaper from someone who I believe deserves much more attention. :)

Thank you dear Goosebumps for the scan: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/117205/

    That looks cool. The background kinda reminds me of cotton candy. Other than that I like the colors used.

    huu, nice one sunira ^^ really like the desaturated look, only hinting blue. maybe its my comp but the city in the bg is really faded. the water is really done well cause the texture is realistic. only small thing is the fog is way too thick, and its too confined in bands like that. it should be more spread out and fogg-ish looking XD

    other than that, nice job

    I like it, looks all dreamy, liked the way you did the sea, it looks realistic. Very cool. Good job!

  4. Chopstickz Jun 28, 2005

    really nice idea,
    the mist/ fog thing is cool but too strong,
    really hard to see the nice detail in the bg
    but you did a great job on the water as well
    overwall, a win XD

  10. Tatsuya Jun 28, 2005

    i like the way you add the fog/mist around the wall, but it's look kinda thick! i think you should lowest it a bit will better, just a suggest may be it just turn out a crap ^^'

  11. macky Jun 28, 2005

  12. lapuk Jun 28, 2005

    not the typical sunira wall, doesn't have that much elements.. still good-looking.might use when i feel a lil bit tensed and i need something calming..

  13. Staff Jun 28, 2005

    OO, the city in the background was unnoticable at first. Then I started to look closely and saw how much detail was clouded by the fog. The water looks very realistic. Same with the buildings. It's a good theme.

  14. zakaro Jun 28, 2005

    it's a really a good job, well done ;)
    it's like he's thinking of what he wants to do, where he wants to go...
    he's thinking of his future, his past...
    and the feel that this wall gives to me is kind of reflective...
    i've never played to kingdom hearts, i don't know the story, so maybe i'm all wrong...
    so sorry if i'm mistake the message of the wall -_-

  15. bbls Jun 28, 2005

    i luv that dreamy, thoughtful feeling you convey in your wall...the subtle images of the seattle backdrop and water was definitely an exquisite concept. :D

  16. crewcifix Jun 28, 2005

    i love the simplicity of this work. i really do. and best of all, i don't see much to work on. i expect more walls from you in the future +fav

  17. volrath77 Jun 28, 2005

    Hmmm....this is kinda different from your previous works. At a glance, there may seem to be lots of empty spaces...well, actually they're not empty :). A nice departure from your usual style. Yeah, it's cool.

  18. Lodigo Jun 28, 2005
