Artist Comment

I have loved this image of Shima for a while now because it's so different from other images you see of this series. I originally wasn't going to do a space theme with it, but I just couldn't get away from it =p

The image is originally from a DVD, but the scan I have is quite small, so I vectored it for this wallpaper. Though my normal style (if you can say I have one) has very little outlines, this vector has none, simply because there weren't that many to add into it, so I just left it completely clean.

Then I used images from Google Image Search (for the Earth) and the nebula images were from http://www.noao.edu/image_gallery/

I used a lot of blending and blurring to achieve the end result. I wanted to simulate the shock wave from the supernova that they are preparing for in the anime, so I made it the same deep saturated red that it is in the anime, which contrasts with the Earth. I did consider using a texture, but I liked how much sharper the colors looked without it.

The title refers to the red taint that permiated space while the shock wave was approaching. The line, "Do you haunt my dreams" refers to the shock wave and Shima herself. Since it looks like she is floating, I pictured her dreaming of the wave, and thus the line "Do you haunt my dreams?"

Hope you enjoy!

    This is a very nice wall. The vector is well done as well. I like how the title connects the character to the background. :)

    This image of Shima is nice, but what really drew me to this wallpaper is that red blaze in the bg. Combined with the rest of the wall, it gives a very ominous feeling. So I say you achieved your objective quite admirably. Great job!
