So I'm taking a break from my Kino chapter illustration series to bring you this Kino wallpaper. When I got novel 9 I totally fell in love with this image. The overhead perspective, the newspaper clippings with glimpses of other characters (even Tea!), the pose... all were just wonderful.
I basically extracted Kino and her shadow and then proceded to redraw the background so that the vertical layout would fit a horizontal one. The blocks were redrawn in Photoshop. The newspaper clippings were cut out from the original and rearranged to fit the new arrangement. Add the ovular lighting, and some textures, and there you go.
After nearly 40 wallpapers using the same Kino logo, I decided to create a new one. It's about time, isn't it? The new logo is a little more compact and incorporates the Kino/Hermes picture in the official logo, and I like the font better as it's easier to read. The title was just the text that was originally on the image.
Additional resolutions will be available at DA! Desktop Anime in a short while.
This is my 200th wall at DA!

Wow beautiful work, nice change of the title font logo of the Kino wall! ^_^ Like how you did the lighting which shows the glints of images, newpaper clipppings and nice tile workings. As always Tama, you always amaze me! :P

    Aww looks uber cute. I love your kino wallies. I like the color, and the newspaper clipings on the floor where the titles or stones are^.^

    As for now i didn't see the original scan but i can't find anything to point out or critic. I love your Kino no Tabi collection since it was you that inspired me to buy the DVD with all your wallpapers. For now i think you did a flawless job. Everythings perfect. And congratulations for your 200th wallpaper.

    Wait, one thing i got to critic. I am getting tired of textured walls. It would be great to see a flawless wall without any texture :3

    I really enjoyed Kino no Tabi, a series that flies below a lot of people's radars, but I digress. I like the pale colors in this wall, it matches the mood of the series very well.

    Your Kino wallpapers are always creative and original. Great job on another one to your collection, Tama.

    OMG 200th wall....congrats!~

    man...it looks great...the extension to the scan u made is flawless.
    The new logo looks nice!~ especially the motorcycle u added.
    In the original scan, i see there's a little bit of color in the photos...well for my preference i'll leave the color as it is, to me that will look more interesting..hehee

    another awesome kino wall from u...great job!~

    Wowies, awesome, another work of art from Tama-Neko! The background looks really beautiful, great detailing and the texture is really nicely pit together. I like the font on the tile, really matches nicely. Great concept and overall look. Awesome work! Keep it up!

    I really liked teh atmosphere of the wallie! It's serene but somewhere there's so many tension.... it's hard for me to explain what I felt when I glanced at the image. I think it's r beautiful! Congrats!

  10. XDarkDestinyX Oct 27, 2005

    I simply love everything about this wallie. The grudge look is a great touch to the mood and theme of this wallie. I just simply love it~ And conrats on it being your 200th wallie at DA.

  11. Kraust Oct 27, 2005

    200? Da---mn, you must be like what - a wallie addict? And here I can't even get past my second one. :)
    I can't really say that I like the texturing on this but it's a wonderful wallpaper nevertheless. Just a difference is taste is all. Your collected skills after making 200 *cringe* wallpapers reflects remarkably well on this. Kudos. Love the colors btw.

  12. cardmage Oct 27, 2005

    Great job re-drawing everything. It must have been really difficult. The feel of this wall is very similar to the one from the image, which is what you wanted, if I'm right. It looks really nice overall. I agree with CosmoStar and the atmosphere part. Its really wonderful. And congrats on your 200th wall.

  13. Zero37 Oct 27, 2005

    Wow, this is certainly interesting. Very nice atmosphere to it and not too cluttered :)

  14. banhmi Oct 27, 2005

    nice looks really good i love it

  15. flyindreams Oct 27, 2005

    Lovely, Tama *^.^* Your Kino walls got me hooked on Kino, and I find it extremely fitting that your 200th wall (O.O) is a Kino no Tabi one >_< Beautiful composition and I just love how the tiles look over the newspapers. I'm definitely enjoying the recent stream of wallies with newspaper elements. And good job on the new logo XD Although the old one was such a stylish trademark that I rather miss it. Anyways... this will be a first favorite for me on MT3, I think XD

    EDIT: Hmm, where do I go to add favorites O_o
