okie doke XD

this is my first submit to MT3! i wanted to make it reflect a more mature style of walling from what my walls looked like when i first started walling in feb ^^

so, main premise behind this wall is to highlight the fact that planet aqua, a newly inhabited planet has been built to represent what the towns on Earth looked like around year 2000. by year 2301, the story's supposed timeline, year 2000 is long gone. the place where akari works represents Venice.

the scan was sorta covered by some text so that took some time to actually fix that part. then i went over main outlines so it wouldnt look to messy.
i cut out some parts of the scan, fixed quality and rearranged them. i took a bit of work to get some parts to merge and agree with other aspects of the wall.
the cleaning and extraction took about 2 days cause i work slow T_T

simple text work. random cloud stocks from stock exchange photo site.

dedicate to my sis who really likes the manga ^^

enjoy

Wow it is nostalgic in a way but hey i like the modern future you have going on because no one knows whats gonna happen but yeah i like how the whole wall speaks beauty, my only fib is that the buildings sitting on the water seem weirdly flat maybe because theirs not ripples or some reflection on the water but its just me when it comes to details... ^_^'
Anyway swell job on the wall as always! :)

    really cute and simple, kai. :D love it!

    the scan is clean cut. almost like it's straight from a shoujo manga. same goes with the background. like it was all clean cut and put from a page of the manga. XD i love it!
    it does seem different from your other walls. but that's a good thing. can't expect the same ol' usual now. i better watch out! XD

    fav!

    Wow, I really like it! The colors are so pretty and for a second, I thought it was an image scan XD I love the background with the colorful clouds and all. Definitely caught my attention ^^ Good job on it.

  3. frozenwilderness Nov 14, 2005

    Love the text, atmosphere, everything. You did an absolutely wonderful job with it. Keep it up (:

  4. Electrastar Nov 14, 2005

    wow. Love the backround. The clouds look like they we're ripped from a watercolor paiting, that's how good they look. And the sea looks awsome to. Great wall.

  5. Tatsuya Nov 14, 2005

    very sweet wall, the background is amazing and the color fits together beautifully. A fav for me

  6. Kiako Nov 14, 2005

    it looks very good, the background scene.
    the colors of the sky and clouds are good. just the water looks a bit strange.
    keep it up

    I love the setting. I'm guessing the boat that she's on came wit the scan. Hmm...I'm not sure if you intended to do this but the clouds and water look hand painted or water coloured. Not that I'm complaining ^^"

  8. ayaki Nov 14, 2005

    omg i absolutely love the font....it looks good!~ ahem back to the bg...lol
    it looks great!~ the sky is simply gorgeous..no matter it's a stock or not...u've rendered it perfectly...
    the slight texture u've added is just right :)
    a more mature walling style u say?...i think u've succeeded. great wall Kai!~ :D

  9. RengekiShin Nov 14, 2005

    Nice and clean, especially the scan. The background is beautiful, especially the sky, very good indeed! =) Keep it up!

  10. Willem Nov 14, 2005

    Nice wall kai, long time no see btw :p

    The pen effect is a good idea I think because of the character / town used. Texts are fine. Hey, is there a problem of ' quality ' in the girl's eyes / hair ? I mean that's the little strange part of your wall.

    Still a good one anyway ;)

  14. fukushuusha Nov 14, 2005

    This one is totally amazing.
    Those clouds really rock as well as the simple text...simple but very fitting in my opinion.
    Colors are also giving a very nice feeling. As usual an examplory work of art..

  17. Keltosh Retired Moderator Nov 14, 2005

    Hmm this wallpaper is really nice. First, the whole compostion is soft and calm, transmitting asense of tranquillity. Then, the colors are beautifully done, and the soft colors contribute greatly to the mood of the wallpaper. And finally, it completely manages to capture the mood of the manga. Beatiful. Favorite and added to highlights
