Artist Comment

I don't know why I made this wallpaper, considering I've never seen an episode of the anime nor read anything more than a few pages of the manga. I think I was just drawn to Tomoyo's outfit and the enormous bird. I love birds. Anyhow, the article this was scanned from kept talking about a birdcage (I think that's part of the title to the TRC movie?) so I decided to place Tomoyo and bird in a stylized birdcage -- using stone columns to allude to a cage's bars. The floor inlays were designed in Illustrator (Illustrator's gradient mesh was also useful in coloring the soft transitions in t he scan). The rest was done in Photoshop; the columns were recycled from my Gankutsuou/Unchained Melody wallpaper, the floor and walls were built from textures; the starfield was brushed; the light effects were some Apophysis renders heavily mixed with radial and motion blurs.
I still haven't gotten that knack for blending 2d character art with a 3d background.
No text this time (quite the rarity) but I couldn't manage to fit it in without breaking the harmony and symmetry of the image.

    thanx i like it alot it is COOL and ............. weird at the same time

  2. ayaki Aug 26, 2005

    this wall looks quite cool..i've never seen this bird in TRC >_<
    haven't been watching or reading it lately.....
    the composition and perspective is unique...
    the only thing i dislike about this wall is actually the two pillars in the front...i know that u're trying to create the look of a birdcage....but becoz of its darkness...it kinda distract me from looking @ the main two chars.... :P
    nonetheless, great job :)

    o_O Jesús this wall is perfect, i'm agry, the perspective is unique.
    I loved thank you. It is a great job

    Very nice. The colors look wonderful, and the lighting is excellently done. Also, that is a very nice floor that you made. Excellent work all around.

    Tomoyo looks different. And the bird is very cute. :D Nice nice background and i love the light. thanks for sharing. ^^

    Maybe the problem is that you should have made the bg more like the 2D image drawing and outline so it will fit all together but thats y opinion....Lovely lights and accumulation of light and the title suites this wall. Great job Tama! :P

  7. ganstamonica Aug 26, 2005

    Really nice, it's very pretty, Tama-Neko!! ^^ I especially like the scan! Awesome job! :D

  8. boink Aug 26, 2005

    I love you, Tama. will you marry me?

    oh wait, I'm supposed to comment on the wall... oh wells.

    It looks nice, but.. I think the chara doesnt really blend in that well, maybe that was just me X(
    Love the texture on the floor, and I think the whole composition is great, good job as always ;)

    never seen it? lol, you should, its pretty good (at least, the first ten episodes are, which is the farthest that i've gotten)

  11. AngelKate Aug 29, 2005

    Wow, this is really cool! I've never seen that image of Tomoyo before. The bird is beautiful, and this is a very unique perspective. Very nice wallie!

  12. revolver Aug 30, 2005

    nice I like it....

  13. Luceyd Aug 31, 2005

    This is, without a question, the best Tsubasa wallpaper so far. Tomoyo is a nice character, and the expression in her face is priceless. The background fits perfectly with her and the bird. Congratulations for making this, you have a lot of talent. =)

    Going to Favorites.

    i love the lighting effect on the girl ---- sooooooooooooooooooooo cool ^-^ ^-^ :)

    Just found this wall through Kitten's mafia plug.I like the nicely rendered background but i don't think the scan fits with it. i like your idea of the birdcage thing but the columsn look 2d because they are flat the the bottom when it whould be round. Nonetheless, good lighting effects and nicely rendered ground.

  16. studio Oct 13, 2005

    Oh nice wall there X3 Like how the scan falls into the shadows in the same way as the background. Really well thought out though, even if the scan doesn't bend as it could have. But, like it heaps here <33

  17. sukie Oct 15, 2005

    it looks really cool...the idea is super too...bg i think the putting together could have been better...as in the columns look really strange...
    great wall overall!!
    i'll come back to fav! =D (that is if i remember! =P)
