Yet another quick wallpaper from me.
why all the quickies? i'm doing some experimentation with a few things and they tend to just be walls with simple plans for backgrounds, so they go by quick.
I loved this image by Range Murata. it's so powerful. Out of all my quick walls, i think i like this one the best. This and maybe my loveless wall, but in 2 totally different ways.
anyways, i basically extracted the image, and did a lot of stock work and texture work. the wall itself was about...
extraction: 10 minutes
background: 20 minutes
text: 5 minutes
sooo, a 35 minute wall. but since people tend to like my quickies, i usually upload em. they have a simple complexity that my way more complex walls lack. so i guess each is appealing in it's own way.
so anyways, another quicky wall. don't worry, i have a wall that'll be taking me some time in the works :3
any kind of criticism is more than appreciated. i'm curious to see what you think of my experimentation (but i'm not revealing what it is caus ethen you may focus on it xD)

    I like alot the grungy effect on the character and the clouds, colors fit very well with the spirit. The scan blends very well to the baclground, good job :)

    Okay 35 minutes is really quick. Nonetheless the wallpaper looks gorgeous. Range Murata can draw cool male characters, but I dislike the lil lolitas xD. Anyway the background looks neat and the textures + colors are great. Good job!

    ok...can't imagine this only took 35mins....woh
    this first thing i got from look @ the guy is him saying "what ya looking at~"...HAHA dunno why
    so this kinda gives me a western/cowboy feel....maybe beoz of the color theme u've chosen..
    the bg is well made...everything looks good ^^ a nice quickie wall!~

    Hopefully I found today a good wall to let a good comment ;) That's quite hard to let some looking the rest of the submissions ^^
    Anyway, I like the way you did it: simple, colors are the same finally just with little differences, good font used. Yep! I like it ^_^

  13. flyindreams Nov 01, 2005

    T_T 35 minutes? *jealous* I want to be able to make a good wall in 35 minutes T__T Or under a day, even T__T

    Anyways, I must admit I like this wallie better than your Langoon Engine one ;) The conception for that is really original and it's a really well-done wallie, but looking at that boy too longs makes my chest feel constricted o_O But I like the simple composition of this one... yah, Range characters are awesome and this one's no exception XD A little too much texture I think, but it does add a lot to the "contemplation" title... XD Sweetness! XD

    I'm sad that I won't be seeing your wallies around AP anymore but I'm definitely glad that you're still submitting them on MT! =P

    Oh, and... good luck with DERKA XD

  14. tareren Nov 01, 2005

    Hmmm, I somehow find that the textures are a bit too much, especially the ones on the left side... I think a gentler texture would enhance the wall better :)
    but I like the simplicity and the way you focus the wall to him hehehe, keep up the good work ;)

    I simply adore the dusty dirty yet completely classy scene. I didnt think they could be captured in the same image. Nice work.

  16. Akira-san Nov 02, 2005

    Oh, very nice... I always enjoy grunge wallies, this one is pretty nice the color are great and the scan is nice too, he looks junky hehehehe xD
    Well done, good job ^^v

  19. MenchiKun Nov 15, 2005

    Again beutiful i like the old feel it had to it

  20. SirMackerel Nov 17, 2005

    I never liked Blue Submarine No.6, so I always thought it was a waste that Range Murata did the character designs. Nice job on the wallpaper!

  21. Belly-chan Nov 19, 2005

  22. Pawe3 Dec 07, 2005

  23. panuru Dec 13, 2005

    This would look amazing were it 1600x1200. Any chance for a variation? Great job, it looks wonderful!
