I've never actually seen this anime or read the manga, but I've always loved the art.
I didn't have a specific scan in mind when I started to make this wall - I built it up around the cranes(?) I think that's what they are)

My Grandma recently gave me an old tea set, which has been going down through our family for a few generations now, which had these cranes on it. The minute I saw them, I knew I wanted to make a wall with them. I drew some rough sketches of 3 of them, scanned them in and used my trusty old photoshop to transform them into what you see here.

After I finished those, and, after a few false starts, managed to create the BG, I searched through my scans and found this cute little HnG pic. (Which I got from the Digik Gallery

That's about it, so, please enjoy!

    A very beautiful background...well designed
    However, although the colors match the scan...I'm not sure the background really suits the modern-looking scan...
    Good effort though

    Yay! A Hikaru no Go wallie! :D I love the background, with the cranes and the other designs...But I have to agree with cyd84 that the scan of Hikaru doens't match the background...he's too yellow. Well his hair is anyway...Great effort though!

    I'm with you, I've never read the seris & know next-to-nothing about it, but that art work is beautiful...

    I like the way you've used contrasting yellow & blue, yet it's very gentle. Not at all glaring. And the details have a really traditional feel, but with a modern precision to them; similar to art deco, but more oriental.

    Really nice work. Simple looking, but very effective.

    Haha I do agree with cyd that the modern-traditional contrast is a bit strange, but I do love the colors and also... very beautiful job on the background, especially with the cranes :D

    the cranes are very lovely. the yellow shirt clashes a bit with the blue, but the bg is gorgeous.
