EDIT: So now it's max quality...& ~3x the original file size.

This is me jumping on the vector/pop-art bandwagon.

I'd had my eye on this image of Fuu for a while, and thought it would be fun (if vectoring is ever fun) to vector her. Since I couldn't find a scan of this image, I resorted to vectoring her off another wall. The vector is large (1385x661), but I chose to do a minimalistic wall, so now she's tiny.

Originally, the idea was to do Fuu Shunpei-style: crazy shading, flower tattoes, eye-popping kimono, the works. But I thought better of it because, in the end, this is a Samurai Champloo wall, and Fuu isn't Fuu without that pink kimono. The bg, to the extent that there is a bg, was still inspired by Shunpei though. It's mostly vector brushes, with some vectoring. Played with color scheme and feathering, too.

Now I've walled all 3 of them X-P Champloo isn't my fav anime, but for some reason it just lends itself to walling ::shrugs::

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Sure, it's a simple wall, but just look at it - it's crisp and clear.
The focus in the center with its vibrant colours and well-vectored image makes this wall not only stand out, but also easy on the eyes. The colours are well-chosen, vectoring is flawless and the composition is just so wonderful that you can look at it over and over and not get sick of it.

Wonderful wallpaper bluSake! Keep them coming!

    Wow, talk about 'Simple-ism'. xD
    Obviously, there isn't alot to comment on, but it's vectored really well. The compisition is well layed out, and I'm liking the vibrant colours on the grey-ish background.

    Nice wall. =] Keep'em coming.

    Very cool.
    The vector is really well done, so neat and the colors great too. I love the bg, very simple, but very cool. Great job!

    Oooh... >_< First thanks for the plug :D This looks great! I think it's my favorite out of all your recent walls. I wish Fuu was just a tiny bit bigger because she seems a little too small in relation to the purple band... the balance feels a tad off to me, but that may just be me :) It also looks like there are some minor compression issues around the text and some parts of Fuu (like her face) but that is really just a nit-pickying issue... like boogy said, the bright colors + gray background looks wonderful! And yay for vector/pop-art bandwagon-ness... especially if it's done well >_<

    *goes off to vote for it in Simple-ism* :D

    Like you said, a minimalistic style, but very well executed. The colors and design seem to emit a nice flow of lightheartedness and life.

    Looks great on a desktop. ;)

  5. IceHand Apr 07, 2006

    That are some nice colours and a well done layout. The only thing I have to complain about is that I can see some jpeg-artifacts. So ... would you mind uploading the wallpaper with a higher quality setting?

    [edit] Yay, thanks for the high quality version! Now your wallpaper is my desktop background^^

  6. ayaki Apr 07, 2006

    this simplistic trend is going strong!~ :)
    Loving everything in this wall ^__^b
    .....except the jpeg quality~ @_@ save it at a higher setting plzzz...cuz i see some blurriness around the edges

    Nice, clean and pretty. :nya:

    O_____O I should have so known this was yours when I saw the thumb...
    Simple, but the concept and the nice layout are great.
    This is so stylish! I love the way you have compacted everything to the centre. It works really well. Also, nice choice of colours - the vibrant colours go well against the light grey bg.
    I luv this one to death <333 *fav*

    What a cute wallpaper, this really is just so very adorable and the minimalistic is the best part of this wallpaper.

    You did a flawless job vectoring her, though she's sooo tiny, it's very fitting for the wallpaper and I really love how she turned out, just a picture perfect job on the vector, I really can't elaborate much else on it except great work.

    As for the background, normally I like to ramble on for awhile about everything, but since this is so simple and neat, I can't for a change @_@, hehe. I really love the circles and I also love the little inclusion of what looks like a flowerish type design as well, the pathway really brings out the symbology of "Where do we go from here", proving that her destination truly is unknown and only up for her to decide on the path of life. I really love things like that and that's what I really love about this wallpaper, everything is done so nicely and so very full of color, yet kept simple and clean. This is just such a very cute wallpaper and so very deep. I love it *_______*.

    Overall, what else can be said. I feel bad for giving you such a short comment when I really wanted to make a longer one, but with a wall like this, not much else can be said except for perfect. Just absolutely perfect the way it is, I love it and it's a favorite for me. Great work, Blu. Even if it is considered trendwhorish, screw it, I say do what you want to do XD.

    Simpleism! Well, that was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this. It looks so great with the simple designs and the layout of everything. She's so tiny and bright agains the grey background. But everything just looks really good. ^.^

  11. Devildude Apr 07, 2006

    amazing, simple, cute, fun and funky, minimalistic and cool.
    I cannot imagine this is yours actually, but it is actually something quite extraordinary coming from you, perhaps one of the better ones?
    indeed a very good piece, I say I really like it.

  12. AWOL Apr 08, 2006

    Interesting colour matching; but this is more abstract than pop-art, really. Because it has induced a sense of direction. This effect is good, but the longer I stare at it, the more I feel it is rather 'spaced-out', perhaps due to the emptiness of the rigth side of the image. It can be corrected if you extended or elongated the 'purple route' more to the right.

  13. drell Apr 08, 2006

    Very nice wall, i'm glad you have approched form a rather minimalistic perspective. The center part is happy & colorful, while the rest is dull grey, this adds contrast. FAV.

  14. Sandra Apr 08, 2006

    and i like the way you added those flowers <33 adding more elements to the wall just so it doesn't look too plain~

    overall, this wallpaper is just fantastic.

  18. Revan Retired Moderator Apr 12, 2006

    Don't know why but I really like that you have made the scan tiny ^_^' guess that's probably because it goes with the minimalistic concept.

    Also really like all the color contrasts.
