My W.A.R. - round 3 submission. >_<

I picked the theme "BitterSweet"
well....this wallpaper is basically a spoiler to anyone who's currently watching Paradise Kiss..and haven't read the manga yet....+_+
I've recently finished reading the manga, loved it!~ and was captivated by this scene....and i think it'd suit the theme quite well....and so i began vectoring from a manga scan....
The ending is touching....uhm..i don't want to talk too much about the plot....I originally want to do a wall from the scene when Yukari opened the closet....but it was kinda hard....so... =_=a

Since i have no reference to how should the dress looks like, I only know it's blue and with beads stitched on it...i just went with whatever that came to my mind. btw, i love her ring.....
The background was inspired by a poster that i bought two weeks ago... I took the flowers from the poster..and stuck them here...becoz i love them so much *_*
and then i kinda made a abstract bg.....:P I'm quite satisfied with the final result.

"Our love shall live, and later life renew" .... so this probably tells u the outcome of George and Yukari...sorry...spoiler!~ @_@ well..err..it made them sounds like they're going to die....but really they're not.

This phrase is taken from the poem of Edmund Spenser's [One day I wrote her name upon the strand]

One day I wrote her name upon the strand,
But came the waves and washed it away:
Again I wrote it with a second hand,
But came the tide, and made my pains his prey.
Vain man, said she, that dost in vain assay
A mortal thing so to immortalize!
For I myself shall like to this decay,
And eek my name be wiped out likewise.
Not so (quoth I), let baser things devise
To die in dust, but you shall live by fame:
My verse your virtues rare shall eternize,
And in the heavens write your glorious name;
Where, whenas death shall all the world subdue,
Our love shall live, and later life renew.

I hope everybody will like/enjoy this wall as much as i do. :pacman:

Chosen by jasmine and belmikry

not only did this wallpaper win the W.A.R. contest on MT, anyone can see why this wallpaper is highlighted. When first opening this wall, you are covered in emotion, fluidity and motion. The colours grab hold of you while George is whisking his love into his arms, this wall takes you somewhere. This scan, originally from Ai Yazawa's manga- is sooo well incorporated into this background. One of the most effective, moving wallpapers seen on MT- EVER. Great work :)

    Heeheee I really liked the detail and the colours used in this one, and the textures really did compliment and accentuate this wall. You even coloured the characters in from a manga scan so that was just woah >_< The inspiration can be seen in this one XP
    Congrats, Legend and Unyielding Hero of W.A.R ^_^V

  3. candy-chan Retired Moderator Dec 01, 2005

    Magnificent! Very good use of colors and scan. The detailed and textured vector you did is really beautifful, and is perfectly complemented by the flowers and abstract bg. Text is very lovely, except for the sentence in white, wich kind of breaks the athmosphere by not being warped.

  4. phamthuha Dec 01, 2005

    OMG! This work is so AWEASOME! It is really the best work i have ever seen for weeks *cry*
    Wanna add to my fav and big kisses to Ayaki-san who hard made it >_<!

    congrats congrats ! ^___^
    definitely obvious why you won WAR ^^
    i really like the blue theme and the tones used for the wall.
    awesome job vectoring the scan, plus its a manga scan too and you dont see that too often.

    the astrologic references and the the bits of text are great ideas.
    nice work ^^

  6. Ayasal Dec 01, 2005

  7. Regenbogen Dec 01, 2005

    I like your wallpaper very much!
    I love the color that you used... and how the characters and the background seem to become one... since they all share different shades of blue! :)
    I am reading Nana at the moment... but I would definitely read "Paradise Kiss" as well in the close future... :) This wall really makes me even more certain about it... ^_^
    And congratulations to your W.A.R. result! XD
    *adds to fav*

    Though I was one of the judges I didn't get to comment your wallpaper, despite giving it (personal rate of course) probably the highest score I ever gave to an entry in this contest.

    This wallpaper can be summed up in one word: it's effective. Which is something that many, many wallpapers that I see on MT lack of. It seems like a lot of people here just tend to go for an original concept, forgetting that what makes a wallpaper succesful it's not the originality itself, but the true effectiveness of a wallpaper. Why is this effective? Because it has a well developed concept that is WELL CONVEYED by the wallpaper itself, it's composed well, it flows well and it's easy on the eyes, it can be perfectly used on any's desktop despite one's personal taste for Paradise Kiss (and I definetely do not belong to the Parakiss' fan category). The fact that it's original it's a side-effect of all these mentioned factors.

    Keep walling like this ayaki, you're surely amazing me. And it would be an honour if you would submit this (and your other works as well) over at AnimePaper. :)

  12. tareren Dec 01, 2005

    My favorite wall out of all WAR walls :D (the 2nd one being your entry for the 1st round XD)
    Anyway, really, nothing much to say other than this is awesome and a beautiful piece of work :)

  13. Sandra Dec 01, 2005

    You guys want to put me in the grave or smthin like that ?! You're makin too many great works ! And you too Ayaki ! Another fav ?! Yes absolutly ^_^

  14. AtTheBronze Dec 01, 2005

    Amazing work, Ayaki! It all fits so well together. And now you've made me really curious to what happens next in paradise kiss! But i think i can guess what coming up ;)
    Keep 'em coming!

    It's gorgeous XD The shading is so delicate, it really looks like it was originally colored. & the detailing is perfect. PERFECT. & the bg is sooo dreamy. I love it.


  16. AngelKate Dec 01, 2005

    Wooow.....sooo pretty! Stuff like this makes me wonder why I bother to submit wallies anymore....mine are always so amature compared to stuff like this. Just an amazing job...the colors, the vector work (which I can't do to save my life T_T ), and just the way everything blends is wonderful. Great, great work! One of the best wallies I've seen on MT in a long time. ^_^

  17. studio Dec 02, 2005

    That`s really gorgeous. I love the effects you have employed, and the overall colours are well thought out and creates an overall attractive wallpaper. Personally I love the scanartwork. @__@; very nice.

    Great work. !

  18. Shadu Dec 02, 2005

    Awww! This is so cool! I'm sad that there aren't so many wallpapers in the Paradise Kiss section, much less artwork from Ai Yazawa. But seeing this. . .. YEAAA! Very cool. I'm glad to see that some people appreciate her artwork and stories. You did an absolutely fabulous job on this.

    And I agree, this is one of the best scenes from the novel. Too sad about the ending though. . . ah well. :P Still ended well in some ways. Again, great job! Definitely one of my new favorites.

    Ciao. ^_~

  19. Akira-san Dec 02, 2005

    Wow, this wallie is really cool! Very different and interesting... I loved the colors. The circles and angles, also the other background effects are really interesting. Scan is lovely! ^^
    Perfect wallie in my view... really deserves a fav!

  20. MasterDiablovn Banned Member Dec 02, 2005

    Hey, I think this is the easiest wallpaper to see since I saw walls made with this strange style, don't know what's it :D .. but very nice wall, background is great! ^^; .. add to favs

  21. nolove Dec 02, 2005

    oh yeah, dark blue color and so so nice scan ><, another so stylist wallpaper, cant stop loving it ><, all thing perfect ><....fav....yeah sure a fav.... XD

  22. Ephemeral-Garden Dec 02, 2005

    The first time I saw this wall was when you were announced as the Legend of War in War, along with Misa. So I browsed around the page and saw your entry, it was marvellous. I have the wallpaper in my folders, and I really love this wall!

    Coz, first, is how George, holds his beloved into his arms like that, it really gives me the romantic yet sad feeling, probably coz Yazawa-samma don't wanna reveal their eyes, it must be really sad. *sobs*

    But it's really amazing how you vectored a manga scan so well that it blends perfectly well into the background. So, I'd say this is a great work!

    And once again, congrats.

  23. shadowcat23 Dec 02, 2005

    I love this wallpaper its really good thanks for sharing it :)

  24. Elyvania Dec 02, 2005

    My god T^T this wall it's so touching! Breaks my heart to remember that scene (one of my favorite ones with the scene in wich Yukari opens the closet after George it's g... and the other it's when she remembers the first time they made love buaaa *sob sob*), this manga it's perfect (just like everything Ai Yazawa does -long life for NANA lol-) and the wallpaper it's perfect too. I love the way you bring the colors of the black and white scene, this are the colors in wich Ai Yazawa's touch the readers, she's a master in the colors of the human heart and you, ayaki, know how to paint Ai Yazawa's colors from your heart... that's great ^^, I'm envious lol you're a very talented and gifted person and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this wallpaper (you bringed gorgeous tears to my lonely eyes ^^ *namida ga afurete... setsunai*).
