This was a wallpaper for a 'music challenge' on the other site ;) The target (at least for me) was to make a parody of a certain CD cover. So, after taking a swift look at my collection, I've chosen Epoxies.

The Epoxies are a five-piece rock group, though, it's a band different from the others. They mix melodic, pop-punky guitar tunes with the taste of the 80s (synthesizers) and more (even yodeling). Both their CDs are very 'kitschy', yet very great. Though I like the latter album more, I picked the former's cover to make this wall. Here it is.

The first thing was to make the background. Fairly easy, made the lines, vectored the cranes. Took a couple of minutes. Then it started to get tricky. I found some decent scans of the people from sos-dan, vectored, made a b/w, 'too contrasted' touch and... changed the clothes of all people. The majority of the chars are wearing the same clothes as the people on the cover of 'The Epoxies', but the fact that in SOS are 3 girls instead of 1 made me make some changes. The most visible is Mikuru, she got a classy, old-school top/skirt combo along with a tie and black bandages all over her hands (the outfit is based on Roxy Epoxy's look during the 'Stop The Future' tour) instead of the grey, metallic suit. The rest was rather easy. And that's it, I think.

So, here it is, people. Do you like it? Thanks in advance for your comments. And don't forget to fullview.

Ps. Sorry for my english today, I'm tired like hell.

    simple and unique. those are the words that i'd describe this wall.
    you did great on recreating the album-look you wanted.
    and the vector is clean and crisp, and the shadow is amazing.
    i just love vectors like that. :)

    great job kozaihod, keep on improving! :D

    Seen this at Animepaper, very very cool and stylish wallpaper. I've never seen the cover it's based off of. I think you should have changed the logo to say the title you gave this wallpaper however, it woulda been cool! Great job again!

    lol, why did I NOT see this before? :) Being a huge Haruhi fan ...
    Good thing I checked the Haruhi gallery randomly just now. Well well, this kind of reminds of my art class, when we did perspective and adding in people to the distance. I like the monotone in this wallpaper, it's very simple in whole, but sometimes a little can be more. I love the style, good work!

    great job with the vectoring, looks exactly like the cd cover...the little details on the characters are what really makes this wall stand out!

    great job!
