Artist Comment

Please tell me what you think of this wallpaper. I was aiming for a dark and grungy sort of look for Sanzo. I had to vector the original image from this tiny screenshot I got from here:


Here's the original:

The vector took a few days since I had lots of things to do and because the original is so small. Some of the lines were definite so I had to make up for it in the vector. The wallpaper itself I wanted to make it sort of dark and I really liked the blurred fence as well as the grunge wall and the graffiti. The fence, though it looks like a shadow, it's supposed to be in front of Sanzo and because the image focuses on Sanzo, I blurred out the fence so that it is like normal vision.

If there's anything I could do to make it better, please tell me.

    Plenty of attitude in this violent wall art illustration!
    Excellent choice in screen shot utilization! Some very clever vectoring with a solid over all composition. This particular piece has been well thought out and very well cleaned!
    A job well done, Nakora! :)

    Wow I remember this part from the opening credits. Sanzo is the best charcter in the show and you brought him out very well in this wall. I love the fence. And the writing on the wall in the background. It's very well done. You can really feel his pain. A+ and a fav. (*^_^*)
