Translation: "At the Shrine Gate"
I should have waited till Halloween, or at least the autumn equinox to submit this, but heck, I'm not one for patience. (*~.^*) Yay, I finally did those multi-colored clouds that look so cool on everyone else's wall (don't ask how long it took me to figure them out, it's embarassing...)!
I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of architecture and perspective, but don't quote me on that. The steps were surprisingly easy to do, but the pain was the tiles on the wall. (*~*)
Many thanks to Silvandragon17-san for the awesome Battousai scan!
The torii and the shrine are from the Stock Exchange.

    Super cool. I really like Kenshin. :) It really looks like if he's waling down steps. Excellent!!!!

    Man, i've been looking for a descent scan for the battousai!!! THIS ONE IS awesome!!! so umm, did u only do the clouds? everything else is a background u got from somewhere? neway, whatever u did, nice job man, i really admire this wallie....keep up the good work.....+Favs.

    I like the effects of what you did with the clouds/mist. It really adds to this atmosphere. I also like how you chose the right color combination for the clouds/mist--it matches to his hair. And the moon is done so nice--looks so mysterious.
    The background is beautiful--it really makes me feel like I am at the Shrine. And the mood of the wallpaper is just right too.

    Awesome job!! ^_^

    I must congratulate you, sylvacoer-sama! Yes, you are a true master! A great artist! :D I love what you've done with the background. It's simply incredible! Awesome effects! The clounds and the shine on the katana!
    Thanks for the mention. *blush* I'm glad it was of use to you. ^^

    Pretty good wall. I'm especially fond of the bg, which looks really good. One thing that bugs me is those pixels of random colors over the temple... And one thing that I can't help, but feel is that Kenshin doesn't seem to be standing on the stairs O_o Maybe it's just me, though. Still, pretty good wall. Going to favs.

  8. dahl Aug 13, 2005

    Another amazing background from you! I really like the quiet and mysterious atmosphere you achieve using those marvelous colors! It's a beautiful wallpaper no doubt, a truly wonderful one for the battousai!

    You're becoming a really awesome waller, girl! XD Your bgs never ceases to amaze me. One thing that doesn't feel right is the trees. In comparison to the scan, they don't match too well. They feel more real. Does that make sense? O_o If it doesn't, it's okay. The temple and the sky looks fine and blends in well. Love the details in the steps and how you made them slightly serve to fit Kenshin's footfall. Really amazing work!

  10. bbls Aug 13, 2005

    that's an amazing scenic background with a lot of details!! i also luv the mist because it definitely adds an eerie, mysterious feeling! i'm also in awe of the steps you made, but i still think the perspective and angle of the stairs don't quite match the perspective of kenshin. the stairs look a bit too step and it feels like that kenshin is not really stepping on the stairs but on the front edge of it...not sure if i made sense...so sorry! or i could just be way wrong...lol!! and i'm glad you didn't wait til halloween or fall to submit this wonderful wallie!! oh, and the clouds look beautiful! :D

  11. moonbaby Aug 13, 2005

    Very nice I really like the clouds
    they really add to the over all effect
    of mysteriousness ;)
    Great Job!!

    Loves Ya!!!

    Hey.......pretty good wallie you got there. Kenshin looks so cool especially the background. Nice job.....love the cloud effect. Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing. Later dayz. (",)

    Awesome wallie, sylva! (Sylva is such a great artist, XD ) Kenshin really looks like he's walking down the stairs!! Oh, redhead... no wonder you're making a wallie out of him, I mean uh.. Kenshin. ^^ The gates are awesome!! I really like that huge gates. The background is just simply wonderfuly, but I see some pixelated dots on the shrine.Why issit like that?

    Overall, great wallie. Just that maybe you can fix the pixelated dots on the shrine?

  14. Shkira Aug 13, 2005

    Creepy background. I really like the colors though. Kick ass wall! ^_^

  15. Ayamael Aug 14, 2005

    wheee, Kenshin... i love that younger version of him, though i almost didn't recognize him first time i saw the OVAs ^_^' loll this wall looks really nice, very Kenshin like for some reason loll

    the pixelated dots on the shrine really don't fit though, and i think the trees look a little weird in the general atmosphere of the wall... not the leaves, those are fine, but the branches, for some reason look a little other worldly... >.< as for the steps they look all right, well, i'm not a master in perspective, so i can't really say if it's good or not ^_^' but i think Ken looks weird with one foot on the wooden part, and the other one that seems to float about the rocky part (am i making sense)... oh well, just details ^^ what counts, is that the atmosphere of this wall is really great, so good work on this wall ^^

  22. Moonbeam Aug 18, 2005

    XD Wow! I have been looking for a really good wall of Kenshin!
    :) Here it is.
    XD It was so incredibly detailed and nicley contructed!
    ^_^' The glowing fog highlights several areas of the wallpaper bringing the eye all over.
    :o You made Kenshin look like he is coming down the steps.
    >_< The temple shrine matches perfectly.
    OX The tints of blue and red in the fog and on the building match well with Kenshin.
    ;) I like the wall, blades of grass, leaves, and moon added details.
    :pacman: Wonderful, thanks for your hard work and I look forward to seeing more of your art around MT!
