Artist Comment

Since I am freshly addicted to xxxholic, CLAMP's new masterpiece, and had to find that there are practically no wallpapers of my beloved Doumeki-kun, I decided to make one myself.
When I was reading Volume 8, one of the black and white chapter title pictures almost leapt at me: Doumeki-kun lying on his porch, staring out into the night. The original picture also included Mokona and humonguous amounts of smoke, but I decided to keep them out, for clarity's sake.

Well, back to the wall: it was done exclusively in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Everything in this wall is vectored: Doumeki and parts of the wooden porch and screen doors are from the original scan, the lantern is vectored from a stock picture found on google. The only things NOT vectored are the textures (again, stock pictures with change opacity) for the wood and the grass. The writings on the lantern, by the way, are the kanji (if I'm not completely wrong or mistyped) for "Doumeki" and "Hitsuzen" (fate).

The title is somewhat a (bad) pun on Doumeki-kun's last name: fittingly, he is called Shizuka Doumeki. Since shizuka (a -na adjective) can mean "quiet" (let us just disregard spellings and kanji for a while), it perfectly fits not only the silent hero but in a way also my humble wall. (By the way, "Shizukana yoru ni" means "In the/a quiet night".

Last but not least: this wall is dedicated to my best friend Christina, who loves Doumeki-kun just as much as I do;)

    Your wallpaper is great. I like Doumeki as well, but I also like Watanuki and the others. :) I read how much effort and time it took you to make this wallpaper, so I feel really happy to have found your work here. Keep up this enthusiasm of yours and the good work, of course ;)
