Artist Comment

This is my competition entry for GEOMETRIC (contest... err... 9?) for TheUnderappreciated Group's Fortnightly Competitions


This wallpaper has been sitting on my computer for a while and I just came across it again when I was looking through my Japanese Comickers folder... and then realised that it fit the theme well.

Uni's like a living and strangling grapevine so I don't really have the time to make something look good and look new... so I had to dig this one out. Originally it was only going to be on devART but then I deleted it because I felt it wasn't "my own work". (it's mostly Shunpei's work, really -_-)

I did some tracing over, colouring and extension (because the scan wasn't wide enough), did some brush work and added in a neat frame. Looks kinda elegant when you set it as a desktop. I did edit it a little since I submitted it to dA so it has a little difference (let's see if you can spot it... not that you should). Oh and yes I have a Shunpei doujinshi sitting around needing some colouring. I know it'll never be done.

As a final noter thanks so much for everyone who has been nice and kept up with my submissions when I've been completely dead... I really and honestly don't really have to time to wade through notifs... so I apologise :( When this whole Uni thing and everything untangles, hopefully I might start getting active again.

Arty and sophisticated, this isn't like anything you've seen before. So if you're looking to impress your art-house roomate, set this as your desktop and blow their socks off.

    OMG! Perfect and so gentle as always ^_^ I do do love this wallie >__<! Fav+ for sure, sweetie ^_^

  3. DREAM Mar 19, 2006

    Lord Dream.. hehe
    i love the Comickers art-book it was easily the best $25 i have ever spent on an artbook..

    i remember seeing this on deviant

    usually i don't like walls with a border but this looks absolutely great on my desktop and i dont even need to move icons around as i made a custom Amano wall yesterday..

    excellent job extending [continuing] Shunpei's artwork- her art is not easy to wall..

    + favs

    btw- sometimes you need to give yourself some credit. ;)
    au revoir

    Mm.. Shunpei's art is amazing. You did a great job of working with such detailed art. The textures are nicely applied and fit very well, and the border works nice with everything. Great work kuroimisa!

  5. shiningdays Mar 19, 2006

    gosh, that's a fabulous scan. Shunpei has such great style :D

    i'm not sure if i like the texture over it, unlike bromithia up there; the color of it doesn't quite blend right with hte rest of the piece i think. great job on the extending and such, though.

    fav'ed :D and good luck with the contest!

  6. SharinganKnight Mar 19, 2006

    its an amazing piece, and I love what you did to it including the texture and border, but Im not sure a scan add-on qualifies enough for a highlight, I guess with such crap being submitted everyday the staff must turn to the best pieces that stand out, like this one. +fav

  7. ShiXon Mar 19, 2006

    bleh,, i'm so jealous of you misa-san -o-
    shunpei's illustrations are really good and thus makes a great wall ;D
    i love this wall but i don't know how to describe it ;]
    heck, i'll just fave it for now ^.~
    awesome job misa-san! xDD

  8. slivermoon Mar 19, 2006

    u truely have captured elegance in a box,
    usually adding a border around a picture was always annoying for me
    however for u'r piece it works beautifuly
    the whole thing is just soo nice, and well put together, wonderful work ^-^

  9. Akaiken Mar 20, 2006

    An abstract art again, eh? So much hooke on those these days, huh?

    Well... the art is very good indeed. And I kinda liked your idea on having some borders but I guess the right part of the border is kinda bigger than the left part. It would've been better if they are of the same size since this'll enhance the beauty of the wallpaper.

    It's very simple, that's all...

  10. ayaki Mar 20, 2006

    u and ur shunpei artworks >_<
    another great work from misa @_____@
    The texture u've added makes the whole piece looks so soft.
    I have no complains here..becoz it looks perfect to me already *___*
    excellent job misa!~ keep it up!
    yep....uni as in university right? ~_~ it can get a bit hactic ... but u'll get used to it soon. -_-a it's almost done for me as i'm in my 4th year...but but but...school is like a greenhouse....really can't imagine 4 years can pass by so quickly. *sigh*

  11. Regenbogen Mar 20, 2006

    I am too tired to write a lot... but actually there is not much to say. It's a lovely scan and your extension and coloring makes it a wonderful wallpaper. So thanks for submitting it. :)
    I think you are always quite active here Misa, I just came home from university and I feel so tired now... @_@ I will use this wallpaper on my desktop now. ^-^ So yes... it's a fav... of course!

    Oh and I almost forgot... it's for UA geometric... I must still finish mine... I have had no time to continue my wallpaper. Maybe I should do that... ^-^

  12. akari-chan Mar 21, 2006

    Wow, this is such a nice wallie! Love how it is. looks very cool. The scan is very beautiful too! +fav

  13. Skyneth Mar 21, 2006

    Interesting wallie, very creative work. I like it. :)

  14. Devilet Mar 21, 2006

    Hmm, I was curious about this wallpaper. Because normally I despise borders in wallpapers. But in full view it actually works, making it look like a professional painting. Nice job in making a wallpaper with Shunpei's works, you really enhanced it. It's simple and elegant.

  15. Ephemeral-Garden Mar 24, 2006

    You deleted this one off DA? Why? I have yet to "leech" it into my files for... safekeeping! XD

    Yeap, a beautiful geometrical and yet complicatedly intertwined wall from Misa. ^^ Now I felt the itchiness to try on Shunpei's. >.< Hm... let me see.. what can I add to this comment... besides the scan is the hard part and you did it so well, I also loved the hmm.. colours for the background. Looks soft, and it looks nice as a frame. ^^

  16. happygreendragonfly Mar 25, 2006

    WOW! It looks like a very cool abstract wallie!

  17. markjo Mar 26, 2006

    It must have been a tough job working with such a difficult and detailed scan, but it was definitely worth it.
    Well, the wallpaper fits in very nicely with the geometrical competition - you have a good eye for great wallpaper material. I am also not a fan of borders for wallpapers, though it kinda fits here.
    A finders keeper, for sure.
