Artist Comment

After seeing so many great vectors here at Minitokyo, I thought ''hey, maybe I could try something like that someday...'' and then, this wallie was born. ^_^
Everything on it was 100% made by my hands (well, actually I hold the mouse with the right hand only~ ^_^' ), and I really worked hard. I'm not joking if I say this is the wallie that made me work the most in all my life. >_<

I have a lot of explanations about it, so if you don't want to know, (booo~ for you! X-P ) jump to the last part. ;)

*The name: I didn't know how to name it, so I went after a song~ ^_^'
It's from Shrek's soundtrack. (a great cd, btw~ :D )
I don't mean that my wallie will make you feel like ''wow' neither anything like that. I just think the feeling of an ''explosion'' or a ''blast'' is well represented by both the wallie and the name, dakara~ :)

*The Girl: I can't work without naming, there must be something on my nature or something. So please, call her ''Cheer-chan''. XD
It all started when I was at the shopping mall, at an stationary paper store, and I saw a notebook. It was a korean notebook, (I recognized the kanjis ^_^' ) full of cuteness. I loved the cover of it so so much! But I couldn't buy it~ :(
So, what was left for me to do? Thanks God I had my digital camera (every girl's best friend ;) ) in my purse, and then, click! ^_^
You can see the cover here:


After that, I vectored Cheer-chan and created the bg. I don't know if this would be at an artist's page. To tell the true, I was totally clueless of where should I put this in. It's not original, and it's not anime... anyway, I think this is the right placing. XD
There was another cover on the same style, so expect more wallies from me on this style later~ XD

*The Reason : What I'm trying to say with this wallie? Well, if you couldn't figure out 'till now, ( XD ) I'm yelling ''Gambatte! ^o^'' for everyone!
[Yeah, cheerleaders do that, I think~ XD ]

*This wallie is especially dedicated to my sweet friends:Co-Star , Lum-Lum , Xangel and Tian .
Please look at Cheer-chan, she's giving her efforts to pass this message for you! ^_~
(Oh, and the message is: GAMBATTE! Keep doing your best, I'll be here cheering for you! *\^o^/* )

*I made another version, so you may want to check this one:


That's all! Please enjoy the wallie! Comments are very aprecciated, I know I still have to improve my skills a lot~ :)

    Wow, such a long description. Mine are like 12 letters D: Anyways, very cute wallpaper :]

  2. CosmoStar Jul 24, 2006

    Oh, Izuzu! This is great! I loved the working you've made! Congrats!
    The Cheer-chan is soooo kawaii (and her nickname is also cute ;) )! The story behind this wall is indeed nice! So you walk with your digital camera in the purse, huh?
    I can't believe you took a picture of the notebook's cover! What an idea! I've never thought about this... The shop people didn't got angry at you? XD
    Anyway, the cover is indeed sweet! Awwww! Sweet, sweet, sweet (tralalala) but the texts on these things are always so strange (what they want to mean? I can't figure out...).
    I liked the second version best because the bg is smooth and I can see Cheer-chan better but the "official" version is really a "gambatte" one! It has a contagiant vibration... it's cool!
    Congrats! Keep up! Your first vector looks awesome! :D
    And thanks a lot for the dedicatory!

    + fav from me ^_~

  9. alterlier Jul 26, 2006

    I'll have to admit I'm kind of frightened ....that's like a monkey >_<.....I dont know...but monkeys >_<....the vector is very clean, but is a monkey >_<, I dont have problems with monkeys but is really spooky, imagine that thing wanting to hug you :O....
    izumi very clever ....about the camera....but also kind of weird that you always carry a camera on your purse...
    is a cool wall anyway, really, even if there's a monkey I mean cheer chan.

  10. HaWaIIofHoaI Jul 26, 2006

    this is indeed... quirky... and frightening... but somewhat appealing. i'll put this up whenever i feel like getting people out of my bedroom. bwahhaha

  11. tian82 Jul 26, 2006

    Wah ! What a kawaii wallpaper ! I like it ! She look so cute and the way you make it look more cute and adoreable ! Awesome vectoring too ! The colour for the first one look more strong and the second look more soft. I think I prefer both of them since both have thier own beautiful. Good work on this, Izumi-chan ! Oh, thank for the message and I am sure will ganbatte ! You too-ne~
