Artist Comment

I recently picked up a copy of this anime, and the last thing I imagined when the beautiful images were poured all over my television screen was that this series would make me experience feelings I hadn't felt since Last Exile, it would bring me to the brink of tears and laughter. The viewer becomes so enveloped and involved with each of that characters that one can almost feel their joy and sorrow. Anyone who's yet to watch the series..you must do so now.
On to the wall; Its really not very complicated and took but a mere couple of hours. I was personally trying to make a darker wallpaper than the usual Gankutsuou gallery piece, at the same time I had been wanting to make a wall which contained characters in the middle with the light concentrating on them, like so. I managed to find the scan on MT, but it was missing one of the characters I had quickly come abhor during the series; The Count of Monte Cristo. In didn't want to have the wallpaper without him so I searched for an appropiate scan and incorporated it in the character mix. This was one of the first walls I used filters on in a long time. Furthermore I added some textures from DA! and thespook.

    Oh man, I am definitely all for the text, love the "silent hill" treatment you gave this wallpaper, dunno if you think the same as I do, but that design, the textures and the text just reminds me so much of that feeling, love the flawless incoporation of the count into the bunch, the over layered textures just bring in so much depth to the wallpaper itself, with excellent coverage, the wallpaper is dark, and very very wonderful to admire. I must say, since I never watched the anime before, this is indeed something to be reckon with.
    The textures are seriously nice, I should try to use them as well.
    As usual, your works just never fails to impress. (yeah, I will copy paste this into AP once you submitted it there lol) As usual, being the fav whore I am, I will fav this.

    Ooo, very cool!
    Love how the dakness and scan almost seems to mix together. The texture are very nice though at some places it makes the bg look too rough. Other than that, nicely done!

    Yeah that anime is certainly interesting. And I really love the darkness of this wall. Great textures as always. Well I really like this wall! Great job again.

    :D glad you picked up the title~ Gankutsuou's really a treat to watch (though i quite liked the count. i kinda felt sorry for him D: )

    the motion-blurred lettering's a bit cliched, eh? for some reason this wall reminds me of a movie poster, in both a good and bad way. good use of textures; and you get extra awesome-points for having piano-girl-icant-remember-her-name-atm in there because she rocks but no one seems to like her very much.

    Excellent wall of excellent anime !
    The background fits well with the original textures of characters, and they are a good selection.

    Gankutsuou...i loved last exile too!~ maybe i really should take a look..haha
    the wall itself looks ^____^b!~ ur dark bg makes them look mysterious.
    i have to agree sith shiningdays...it does appeal to me like a movie poster!~ which is great!~...cuz it makes me wanna watch it.

    The Gankutsuou series surely has some amazing imaginary. You made a wallpaper that fits with the style of the anime without quoting it too much. Choosing a grunge background was a good idea. Looks very nice.

    wow.. veeery naaaisuu =D
    i love the dark atmosphere.. and the composition is pretty interesting... i mean.. the characters are neither on the right side nor on the left side.. xDD;;
    and the text is well done as always.. =D
    def a fave.. >__<

    Cool grungey. The bg and colors really match the scan and the characters' poses. I especially like the outlines of the scans. It makes it match the bg even more and gives it a rustic look. The textures really work with this. Awesome work!

    I love it! Exelent Work!
