can't get any better than this >D
Send love to that wall

Well this was supposed to be a collab with Gid, but it never worked out and right now I'm sure she's busy with her battleground thing. So I decided to start on a whole new idea for the scan. I still love you gid <3
We did want (actually I did) to do something inspired from Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha, and I ended up vectoring one of his frames that fitted the concept perfectly. The Nouveau period (1890-1910) has been growing on me for about 6 months now, and since then I've been able to visit Paris wich was increadibly full of artwork and architechture from the early 20th century. So yeah I ended up buying an artbook of Mucha's advertising posters, and scanned like there was no tommorow! thank you scanner!

EDIT--oh and if you think the title is too big, well crap you. Art Nouveau always incorporates text into the work, so it's supposed to be big like that.

Mucha frame: clickie
scan: on AP
textures: accustudio.com & Mayang
Alphonse Mucha artwork: clickie
info on art nouveau: clickie
layers: 35
time: 20 hours
fun: ALL
no fun: blending the contrast of the white letters to the yellowish dark bg

    Vectoring the scan would have ruined it, I thought you were good at walling, too, Osi. Candy is too lazy to do something so crazy anyway. I like this wallpaper how it is, the red background and thick outline of the scan is just beautiful. Awesome work candy-chan.

    Nah, I think it looks fine without being vectored. The scan has that awesome dirty-like feel. Textures and font work well and the colors are perfect. Excellent job!

    Yay more Art Nouveau I love you very long time XD
    Well, framing = the awesome. And for Art Nouveau, that's what's important.

    "the paradise we seek" and "rakuen" text seems a bit ill-blended with the rest of it, but a great wall nontheless. i agree with brom, vectoring would've ruined the scan methinks. wonderful wall though.

    awsome wallpaper, i like the wolfies.

    I like how you just blended the whole thing togehter with the texture just to clearly neautralized it, vector or no vector i wouldnt have thought it was one of those anyway... but yeah lovely reffich brown bg going all around the whole wall, beautiful and prestine Candy! ^_^

  8. smilebit May 14, 2006

    you puled off the art nouveau rather well. but i do feel that if it was vectored it would have been flawless. great wall none the less. cheers.

  9. Juclesia May 16, 2006

    I think it is a great wall as it is....the style is something different compared to other and I think thats great

    so cu hopefully soon around

    I think it looks great! A well made peice of work. It seems that no one really includes Blue anymore. Toboe looks so cute XD

    It's a really impressive render of art nouveau, but then, most Wolf's Rain art have the same feel. This is a very interesting take on the atmosphere of the original scan. I can actually picture it as a poster right off the wall of a 1930s theatre. The roots, though, that's the only bit I that bothers me. It's rather obvious that there used to be a whole tree behind Cheza, and now it's gone. ^^;

    By the way, may I know what typeface you used for your wall, and where you found it? Either I miss typefaces like that whenever I go font-hunting, or I just never see them at all. I'd appreciate it, thanks! XD
