What to say, hmm.

Well firstly this scan is of Kenshin and Kaoru from a Rurouni Kenshin calendar back in 2002. Thanks go to Cynical126 for it, give her a visit at http://random.cynicallyinsane.net and naturally www.abstractanime.com as well. This scan I guess in most respects is old and it was one of those images I wanted to get back to eventually, as such this was my attempt at walling this image.

I bit of CG work involved removing text and cleaning specific areas, but it worked well overall and the crop wasn't overally difficult. I wanted to make this wallpaper feel as though it was a Japanese Print of the sort, so I silhouetted various greenery, flowers and created textures to give the overall desktop depth, or so I hoped ^_^;;. It was definitely a lot of experimenting, I layered in, brushed several floral designs, whether or not they completely show, everything helped to create what I was trying to achieve.

Lastly the indents were to done to give it more of that print or scrolling you might see on an actual wall. Still keeping with the guise of it being a desktop I bordered it on the left and right and threw in the Japanese Kanji and Symbol from the calendar's cover. I have no clue what it means!! Hopefully it says "Rurouni Kenshin," the artist's name or something. Anyway I'm ranting and if you've read this far, thanks! Hopefully you folks like it and find a use for it!

    Woah. Clearly the best wallpaper I've seen from this series. It's great, altough I would have preferred the "squares" not to be there.

    beautiful work ^^~ The printed grunge look really gives it a unique and stylish touch. The text is a bit sharp when placed against the BG, other than that it looks awesome =3
