Artist Comment

I believe that some of the best artwork of DeathNote comes from the chapters themselves. mainly the first page with the chapter art.
i decided to sue one of those as my scan.
I picked a scan from one of the early chapters, in either volume 1 or 2 (i don't remember...my books are in savannah x_x). i chose this scan because it has that strick black vs white contrast that i love so much. i vectored the entire scan in illustrator, using the pen tool of course, and then created a background that i thought would suit the original scan using the same technique. i decided that a brick wall would work nicely. but just brick would have been boring, so i went for a "poster on the wall" look as well.
the poster actually says...
"KIRA is among us. Pray that your soul be saved."
to add some points of intrest, i used the whole "black and white + one color" trick, deciding on blood red as my accent color.
added some blood splatters in, and followed it up with some text as a finishing touch.
i'm pretty happy with how it came out.
i know it's not everyones cup of tea, but i'm a vector whore. so sue me xD
comments and critiques appreciated.

more resolutions at http://pixelatedgraffiti.animationalliance.net soon. whenever the hell i decide to update with this wall >_>

    Woah its been a while since ive seen another black and white wall but hey as long as theres a noir sense then its speaks genius i guess. I love how the spotlight just shines upon this heavenly vector you did on the image. the text aint bad too cos its BOLD ^__^. Bloody well done as always Kalico!

    I like bold text too x3

    and that is a great wall, Love the spotlight idea, and I wish we could see the poster a bit more :/
    Blood splatters on the top left look suspicious, maybe I would have done something to the part where it overlaps the brick, some change of texture, because right now it looks like you just slapped the brush there :P
    Anyways this is indeed great artwork, and, what can I say more, I like it <3
