Artist Comment

I started watching Speed Grapher last nigth and finished it this morning, yeah I didn't get any sleep, and yeah..its that good, also..the opening song, catchiest tune ever written. sl33p iz fo' lozerz. Anyway, I made the wall as soon as I woke up from my morning nap :3. I know I know, yet ANOTHER style from me, Im not much of a comformist, plus Im very anxious and hyper, sticking to one thing isn't for me. I decided to give the over-used-but-not-as-much-as-circles arrows a try.
I also, tried the no shadow technique on the vector, partially because I was too lazy to do a proper outline and all those shadows on such a detailed scan. @_@ the rest is well, up to the imagination of the mad. Added some cityscapes, some retro patterns and lines. Last but not least, I typed up the stylish title, Seaside Friends, which I got from the best band..EVER, Ghinzu. If you haven't alerady, which Im quite positive is the case, go listen to them. Oh and for the speed grapher geeks who noticed:

"wait..doesn't Suitengou have glasses?"
Ish: stfu, I got lazy and he got contacts. ^_^

Clean Version:

City Stock: sxc
Texture: DA!

This wall just 'pops out', and that was my first impression.

It's very simple in a sense, but once viewing it in full-size, there is more in the wall than there seem to be. Vector work is very clean and the choice to not use any outlines has proven to be the right one. You might say the arrows and the vector circles are somewhat cliched, but the subtle merging of characters, 'half-hidden' texts which are not very obvious at the start and hidden city-scapes are all quite cleverly done.

    Oi! It is indeed a wonderful wall. I tried my hand at this style, illustration.Blitz by Kasai . It didnt reach the quality of yours. I hope my next try will. ^_~

  6. pamkips Jul 07, 2006

    hm this is creative >___< I have to agree with chloe-chan stop being f-ing awesome >____<

  7. euna Retired Moderator Jul 08, 2006

    It's very good. The vector work is flawless and I love how you have sort of merged the characters. Really simple in a sense, yet there's more in it. I like the hidden city-scapes (a bit like puzzles I suppose). Looks great too. *highlighted*

  8. cassandraronald Jul 08, 2006

    very nice wallie
    it deserves to be highlighted
    i love your idea

  9. Rhonda21 Jul 08, 2006

    Yes a great vector. Looks good without the shadows. And the arrows with the city there too look good. Great job once again!

  10. Yina Jul 08, 2006

    uff.. these sort of bgs are getting more and more popular these days..
    I wonder who first started the idea.. o__o
    you vector work is amazing.. as always ¦3
    and i really like the colours.. they kinda remind me of chocolate.. xDD;;
    overall great work, =3

    i especially like the small lines in the bg. XD

    nice stuff

  13. sheol13 Jul 09, 2006

    Hey, i like that style...it is not easy to get the mood..

  14. wert668 Jul 10, 2006

    I love the way of UXGA resolution. The design and techniques you used great job. The concept and the colors are awesome.

  15. armac Jul 11, 2006

    That's so cool! Making a wallie of a scene from your dream~~~ It's not crappy at all! I wish I had your skills so then I could make such beautiful wallie of my dream~~~
    I love the sparkling leaves and how the light shines upon her face~~~ This wallie is very well composed~~~
    Great job! ^_^

  16. perlox Jul 12, 2006

  17. mystvearn Jul 16, 2006

    Nice design with brown colour tones. I like it alot.

  18. kiolaff Jul 24, 2006

    Oh! I'm going to watch this anime! :)
    The wall is great!

  19. walkure245 Jul 26, 2006

    Love the angle. It makes the people and buildings more awe-inspiring. I love the way you vectored the image. It creates an indistinct difference between the bg and the people. Like they are part of the city and unseen. Love the brown and the textures. Awesome work. XD

  20. MapleRose Retired Moderator Jul 29, 2006

    nice vector! I like how the characters melt into the background so naturally. and nice colour choice. the textures are nice too :)

  21. kiba-the-crazy Jul 31, 2006

    how did u do that?

    its absolutley amazing!

    what program do yew use to do the colours.

    as ive just been inspired to draw something!

    (>@-O)> need pencillllllll....


  22. Iga Sep 15, 2006

    What can I say, that wasn't already said! Maybe that, beside all other resons, I love this wall because brown is my fav color... but that is at the end of the reson list ^__^

    Like always thanks for sharing

  23. Yclectica Oct 06, 2006

    This so simple and incredibly original. I love the texture and the simplicity of the background, as well as the excellent vector. The subject matter doesn't hurt either! The color scheme, the angle, and the style all blend together so perfectly. Excellent job.

  24. Jai-cie-tea Mar 13, 2007

    Aww You're mocking us ( or just me ) with your laziness and 'mad'ness D'x
    Gosh, great Vectoring. You dared to let the same colours run through into different the characters and merge them without making them looks like some sort of Nucleur Mutation.

    Very, VERY well done. It's amazing. And good colour scheme as well!
