I know its been so long since I've submitted an anime wallpaper. Its been too long even for me. Life got really busy. :) Well, nonetheless, I finally have something for you. I got this scan off of AnimePaper but I have no idea where exactly. If someone could at least tell me the series this is from(as vague as the picture is), I would be much obliged.

Now, lets move on. I;ve always wanted to try a silhouette piece but I've found I've never managed to pull something beautiful off. This time, I decided to use this image, which is so beautiful on its own, as the silhouette. He was looking at something or somewhere to go and I got to create that something! It was an all exciting process. After scouring Stock.Xchng for a decent hillside scene, I came across a beautiful one and used it, after running it through the basic filters to make it more anime-colored instead of realistic. The original image had only one rock on which he could stand so I extended the rock, added some grass, and some lively night insects to give his rocky pedestal some life and flow. I then placed it before the hill scene. I made the image very dark, as I wanted to portray a nighttime scene. I also tossed in a couple of planets in there, ones with some real texture and color fluidity instead of the usual slapped on brushes. I found another stock image that had flowing mist and surrounded the planets with it. Overall I think it came out allright.

I really hope you all enjoy it. Im really sorry for being away so long, that I didnt get to give you all my love packaged in wallpapers. This wallpaper is for you!

Comments and Favs appreciated and thank you all in advance.

Humbly yours,

    kinda reminds me of Van Gogh's Starry Night... FLCL style! The jupiter colors really give off an eerie lonliness. Very nice. +fav+

    I think this is one of your best work yet, Sunira. Fav!

  9. bbls Jul 20, 2005

    wow, sunira, you did an amazing job with the photo manipulation and integrating your background and scan into a wall that looks seamless. you also have a wonderful concept here with the choice of colors and having the chara in a stark looking environment, but looking ahead of him with some hope.

  10. soujiokita Jul 20, 2005

    It looks very dark, but it's very cool! The moons or whatever it is and colors are great. Keep it up. +fav :)

  11. Aa-chan Jul 20, 2005

    It's a nice concept, but I think it'a a bit too dark. Could just be me, but I would have liked to see a few more areas of light.

  12. Lenne Jul 20, 2005

  18. SunnyDoll Jul 20, 2005

    luv this pic.... veri unique in its own way.... keep up the good work!


  19. flyindreams Jul 20, 2005

    Ahhh... beautiful! The composition is great and the effects are really nice. I think that people feel that it looks too dark because it looks more like a sunset type scene instead of a night scene, but I'm really happy that you made those red planets instead of the usual white moon T_T It definitely feels somewhat surreal, but in a very nice way, and it's so very usable as a wall... scans should always, always be positioned on the right!! *shakes fist in approval* Very beautiful job. Nominating it for Simple-ism's featured gallery~ ^.~

    EDIT: Hits head~ Just opened up the wall again on my own laptop to save it, and realized that he was standing on top of a hill... >.< Maybe it is a little too dark for some people's displays... T_T Modified my gallery comment so I feel less stupid now~

    great job on the wallie. colours were picked out very well. grass was brushed on perfectly. the overall 'feel' that you've managed to convey through the wallpaper is just awesome. sugoii wallie indeed.

  23. thecatmistress Jul 24, 2005

    amazing Sunira!!! this is a masterpiece!!! FLCL one of my fav shows.... red moons... so soothing to the eye... +auto fav

  24. rocknroll-isgo Jul 26, 2005

    Loving the fantasy look. Oh and the title... good stuff. I'm such a sucker for creative titles. >_>

    Anyway, the paint-ish filter is bit... I donno. It just doesn't seem to fit well. And they're a lot of rough edges. It almost looks like popart... perhaps you were going for that effect? Good job on the mist/clouds in the sky though. *_* I'm jealous; wish I could make clouds like that. -_-'

    Not bad, just not a big fan of the filter you used on the ground. ^^
