Artist Comment

the scan used is here, submitted by MadoshiKurefu. thanks, Mado! i cleaned the text from shuichi's shoe and knee. i am very pleased with the results. :D lyrics on the image are from the song "coin-operated boy" by the dresden dolls (written by amanda palmer). while working with this image, the song came to my mind. i decided it was because shuichi looks like a little doll, and that thought led to me thinking of chobits... ^_^' anyway, for the purpose of this wallie, shuichi seems to essentially be the coin-operated boy. bet yuki will be surprised this christmas, ne? ;)

the "maze" background i did on microsoft paint. i seem to have been having fun with designs like this because i used a similar technique in a painting i did recently. also, i like use of these pixelled types of designs in walpapers and web graphics and i hadn't used them until now. i'm afraid the circle pixellation is not quite what i desired, but i still like it in all. the rose is from callofthewildphoto.com.

i assembled the wallpaper on adobe photoshop. this is definitely one of my better ones. i have done a lot with imaging on photoshop in the past, including making anime iron-on designs and designing my personal website and all its images (i also have some frames designs that i can't use yet because the free hosts need ads everywhere, which messes up the frames). i just hadn't done much with wallpapers until now, so i'm really proud of this. XD

this version of the wallpaper uses the original scan of shuichi with green eyes (like the ova series). i also made two other versions of the wall, one being shuichi with purple eyes (like the tv series) on purple background, and the other being shuichi with purple eyes on a pink background. leave a comment and let me know if you want one of the alternate versions, and i'll e-mail it to you. i hope someone likes this as much as i do. :)
