Artist Comment

Originally a wall for a bleach contest at AG.NET, it started out as a simple stock filterwhoring, but I ended up painting over the desert stock manually (which I took myself, others are from sxc.hu though). Scan from animepaper. BTW, it's textured to death due to lack of my painting skills and blurryness of the sky.
Im in debt to aibuster, wizzy, flashd & korganos for the ideas/tips/critiques.

edit: the thumbnail is awful, full view please.
edit2: uploaded an updated version. old one can still be seen here (link).

The thumbnail at first sight shows that this is not a wall to be missed out.

MuZ0NaZ has done a very nice job on this wallpaper. He has taken a suitable stock photo, made significant changes to it, including painting over it, and has blended it in with the scan to produce the wallpaper you see here. The level of noise and texture used is also ideal as it brings out the concept of the sandstorm well. This Bleach wallpaper has just the right combination and proportion of everything. It is worth having a good look at.

Well done MuZ and keep up the nice work!

    Woah Muzo! XD
    It has got a really misterious feeling, the desert is very good painted, and the whole texture fits perfectly
    ^___^ yes, the thumbnail is totally different... + FAV!

    ichi /me drools
    it's not like you overdid with the textures >XD looks pretty good, the anime image is well blended

    Feh, I lied Muz, I am going to propose this. As much as I hate Bleach, this wallpaper is just too good. Plus it isn't like all of the typical vector-colorful stylish wallpapers we've been seeing recently, you know?

    I love the background, blends perfectly with the scan. You did a really good job of repainting it too.. not much to say, just nice work!

    (not cluttered, not busy, and good to look at for hours and hours while sitting in front of your computer^^)

    An awesome piece of work...everything just fits really well together and you've done a wicked colouring job

    Thanks for sharing

  13. flyindreams Apr 03, 2006

    Lovely texture work and paint job on the background... The dramatic colors + lighting is also really nicely done! :D

  14. adapt Apr 03, 2006

    Sweet! really nice texture and resolution. TY

  15. AdventSX Apr 03, 2006

    Its very good, the texture and the colour of the mountains blends nicley with the sky. I dont think this wallaper would work if you hadnt texture it to the point that you did.
    THe sunset really adds an extra feature to this wall which almost makes his hair seem brighter than it normally is (unless that the scan)
    Cheers on a well crafted wall.

  16. polarie Apr 04, 2006

    impressive! it's very nice.. i like the effects created.. gives it a very strong powerful feel.. very suitable 4 the scan

  17. Machika Apr 04, 2006

    The bg fits Ichigo perfectly, I love it >_< . This wallie is worth highlined ;)
    My fav!

  18. chibicow Apr 04, 2006

    bleach is lost on me.
    fair enough, its an interesting wall - but again,
    Totally lost.

    Regardless, its well done - the texture is something similar though. Oh well?
    keep it up.

  19. Milkiyo Apr 04, 2006

    dunno...it seems pretty grainy to me and a little blurry although it's themed sandstorm D:
    still...the texture is somewhat of originality and the painting is da-vinci-style :P

  20. yoshi-mist Apr 04, 2006
