Artist Comment

Well now, I am happy with this one, so much so, that I'm using it as my own wallpaper right now. xxxholic is a great series and Yuko is my favorite Clamp character to come by in awhile. I was flipping through my xxxholic mangas the other day and came across this panel : http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v193/Electrastar/original.jpg
and thought to myself: ''This would make a cool wallpaper".
And there you are. I had to do some creative editing to add the missing pieces of the smoke....yes, another vector by me. I colored her eyes yellow because in a scan I found, her eyes were this color and since Clamp doesn't seem to know wich color her eyes really are, I'll just leave it at that.

Oh, and the title is from a very old Depeche Mode album called: Speak and Spell...I just thought it sounded cool :D

    "speak and spell" very funny ;)

    Interesting flecks of blood red rising up with the flames. Very eerie, very atmospheric; and you've caught the feel & look of the moment perfectly... Nice work! :D

    you should be happy about this wall cause its very good ^___^

    really like that simplicity of yuko-san being merged with the darkness around her.
    focus on the purple flames is a great idea as well.

    though personally i woulda preferred no text on the wall other than the sig as to really concentrate on the simplicity of it all.
    still concept is awesome and so is the vector ^__^

    definitely one of the more inspired works.
    nice one

    WOW I love the colors in this one! They're so bold. I love bold color schemes. ^^ I've read some of the manga, and it was pretty good, but I'm kinda too poor to buy more right now. How do you do a vector anyway? LOL.. too high for low-level people like me. I'll just enjoy other people's vectors for the moment... great job, + fav!

    Awwww... nice colour manipulation - the dark background makes the onlooker focus on the purple flames.
    My current desktop - thank you!

    Very, very nice. The purple fire really sets the picture off. Great work.
