chibikko no new series wallpaper marathon wa hajimashita yoooo!
(not sure if this gramatically correct ^^')

I love this season, there are so many great series. Gun x Sword is not the best but certainly one the coolest. Especially Van with his awesome sword and mecha lol. Well yeah, GxS is about Van and Wendy, who follows him, in some kind of western setting. And Van has a mecha who comes down from space everytime he calls him. Execution is the code word or sth like that.
I found a scan of Van in the Newtype issue 08 (also at Minitokyo by silverdragon who likes to level up by submitting both scans seperately haha =P 01 and 02) and vectored it, which took me about 3-4 days. I wanted to make the same atmosphere as in the first episode when Van is walking through the desert. Like this and this. So I drew the clouds and the background, which was not fun at all. But the bg still is better than stolen backgrounds from other people without credits >< gao! Anyway, the most fun was the font <3

I'm trying to make a little new series wallpaper marathon. If someone likes to join me, please pm me. I'd like to know =D

Reason: The idea is very nice and I love the manga. Check ayaki's other submissions as well!

[EDIT] Updated the wallpaper, made the lines look a little smoother and repaired some other problems.
Btw, if you'd like to know more about the series (without watching it), download the opening ---> Gun x Sword opening clip. Don't worry, I'm not stealing bandwidth =P

    You did a great job with that vector and the background complements it well. I'm watching this series because of this wall and currently using it as my background. A+ work here.

    nice bg with the clouds and rocks, the sword is bloody awesome, and that spark/shine on it is just a nice little effect ^^

  11. Sunnyd29 Aug 03, 2005

    You did an excellent job of vectoring and editing this scan!! It looks really interesting. The story (or part of the story) you explained sounds really exciting!! If it comes out in America, I'll definitely be sure to watch it!! As for your scan, awesome!! The background looks great!! I also like how you were able to put the word "execution" on the sword. I really like it!! Thanks for sharing chibikko!!

    However , still my fav

    A new series marathon, that sounds like a pretty good idea :)

    Anyways, first things first, I'm amazed at how little feedback and favs there are for this o_O
    Vector looks flawless and the text, along with how its placement, on the sword was a great idea. What I especially like are those rock formations in the background, quite unique and look pretty legit in terms of what you'd see in a series. Great work on this piece chibikko!

    Yay! I just finished watching the first four episodes. I loved it! I was hoping to find some wallpapers for it. I love the work you put into this wallpaper! I also found one GxS at Ningen's Anime Wallpapaer (http://ningen.nattoli.net/wallpapers/gun_sword.html).

    nice wall here chibikko ^^
    i gota say the vector is awesome >_____< esp how the outlines are very small but still the color fills nicely ^_^'
    rocks look great and the kinda rocky texture/look you gave em is nice as well. lol i havent figured out how to do that rock look yet -_-'' can ya let me in on the process? XD
    clouds look anime style ^^ nice

    overall its a nice piece of work +fav
