Artist Comment

Jumping around with our empty bodies, we open our mouths and foul words fall out... when are we going to admit our souls are hollow as well...

this is my first submission in mt3... it's been awhile huh?
scan was provided by DREAM form Amano Le Roi De La Lune artbook.
Thanks! who said Amano cannot be vectored? take a closer look ppl.
pattern by Tama @ http://patterns.ming-ling.net/

It is all in there, so make up whatever you want from it.
I will become less and less descriptive in my submissions.. art shouldn't be explained.

Enjoy, reflect and visit NuclearSeasons.com

    Hello DernierCri... well I am among these who said that Amano should not be vectored... Now I see a wallpaper... where you did what I would have never done... ;) First of all, it's certainly brave... I wish I had the original scan here too... The vector certainly looks good... but part of the reason why I love Amano's art that much is his soft but yet strong lines... and they disappear once you make a vector out of his art... and I simply don't want to do that, even after seeing your new wallpaper... It's doesn't look like Amano anymore... Does this make any sense?
    Well in the end I admire that you really vectored Amano... and it turned out well even though I miss the special Amano lines... +fav

    An Amano vector!? Is this possible? XD

    Very brave. The lines in her hair are nicely done. However, the delicacy there clashes with the mono-width lines of the rest of the vector, especially since those lines are rather thick. The treatment is just a little heavy.

    I don't think I have fully grasped what bluSake is trying to say about the vector lines, but I like the wallpaper a lot. It has lost the sketchiness, it's true, but the whole Yoshitaka-Amano-feeling is still there for me. Plus, as it's something that no one has tried to do before, it's definitely worth highlighting.

    I think this wallpaper is almost too simple with Amano's work vectored and radiating lines... I would hope for a more colorful piece. I think what you did was good, but just not my thing.

    Lol! King Spicy alright DC! XD

    Well I really do like what you have done. This was probably what I was saying in the NWP gbook... all the Amano works I have seen look like Amano... as in the wallpapers in the gallery... this would probably be the first that doesn't look like Amano... but is Amano... I think the simple background compliments the scan really well... the title is very fitting :) Kudos~~ adding this *runs away with your wallpaper*

    fowah, like Blu says, it's a brave idea to vector Amano. But you did a very good job in my opinion. Simplifying Amano's detailed strokes must not have been easy, and the vector does change the style very much. For once though it's nice to have something that clean ^_^ Good composition and color scheme, text seems a little too sharp compared to the rest of the smooth lines though, still deserves a high note :D
    oh and the texture was a lovely idea, adds a little detail to the otherwise plain colors

    And cascading through dark corners, engulfing out imaginations that are created and destroyed, my thought bubble is bigger than the earth but not holllow.

    I never thought vectoring an Amano work is possible but i guess things come from different places.... anyway simple and beautifully done, though i wish i could see more of the patterns and textures next time... Great job nonetheless. ^_^

    i agree with Regenbogen about the vectoring of Amano. we actually discussed this last week and are in accord that vectoring Amano takes apart from his artwork.

    wall: you really have a rare abilty to take his artwork, make it your own, and bring to fruition an artwork that remains and reflects your intents. so yes i must say you have accomplished what i believe to be impossible- vectoring Amano.

    but i really hope that other waller's don't start to vector his artwork. and that includes me as well.
    looking forward ot the next "one".

    note: im really happy that "Le Roi De La Lune" has inspired you to create such heartful artworks.

    I agree with markjo- this should be highlighted.
    your words "enjoy and reflect" are music to my ears. ^^

    Sorry it took me a while to get to this DC ^^;; I came back from school and saw your message and felt SOO guilty ^^;;

    I think that you did an absolutely beautiful job vectoring Amano *kicks the other people who says otherwise* I think that one of the biggest challenges in walling Amano is that the images are so beautiful already that you can't really add much to them... I find it interesting that in vectoring it (which doesn't usually add much room for personal style from the waller) you actually added your own personal touch to this wallie *^__^* The Amano touch is still there, and the overall look is just so wonderfully stylish... XD The only thing that bothers me slightly is the text, because it looks kinda messy while the rest of the lines are so wonderfully smooth... ^-^ But maybe the contrast is what you were after :)

    *hugs DC :)* Nice job on this :)

    P.S. Texture? What texture? o_O Am I going blind? O_o

    And I can't believe I forgot to nominate this for Simple-ism... =_=
