PLEASE try to download image. As many of you know, the thumbnail doesn't do it justice, but not only that, for some reason, it looks blurry in thumbnail and a lot of detail of course is lost. Thanks!

Hello everyone! *waves and hugs*
Long time again, no? Had surgery this summer so that kind of affected things. I am healing well now. I have tried to respond to a lot of you, but I must say again Thank You for all the wonderful comments, favs and suggestions with my walls. Also I have tried to see everyone's work that I have missed. I apologize if I have not.

I come back with this wallpaper that I dedicate to sweet Iscalio over at Suikox.com. He is not that much of an anime fan. Says that they are drawn weird =D So I try to find a scan that was not too anime for him. He also owns finches and loves birds. So I thought this scan would be perfect for him.
I tried to find the category for it, but sadly it does not seem to exist there. So please any mods if they could fix it that would be great. The scan is from Dynasty Warriors and the original creator is Shin Shangokumusou.


I love the artwork of Shin Shangokumusou. It took about a month to do this wallpaper, but that is because of the surgery I underwent and with the recovery. In order to expand the wall, I had to do a lot of stamping and redrawing. With the stamping, I wanted it not to look like exact replicas, so I focused on varying everything that was stamped. I painted/drew some areas like the floor and certain parts of the wall.
To add more to the oriental feel, I took pieces from other scans of the original artist to keep consistent with the texture/pattern of the original. I also took some pieces of furniture from other scans, but had to alter them very much to match and blend in with the original scan. So that overall the wallpaper has a continuous harmony of texture and feel. I hope I have achieved this well.
Here is the original scan which is here at MT:

What a seemless and impressive background you've created. Just goes to show that not every wallpaper has to be a fantastic vector to be highlighted... ^^

    Aww. She's cute. I really like art that look like that. She's a very pretty girl with porcelain skin. You did a good job in stamping the rest of the environment to place. Color harmony, light balance, perfect. >.< I especially like the fans.

    I hope you've recovered well from your surgery. I know how it feels to cope up on those times cuz I've been there too. ;)

    I changed my wall into this one. I like the color so much! Iscalio is lucky to have such a dedicated friend!

    If you told me this was from Dynasty warriors, I must have missed that part. Or maybe you didn't mention it to me at all. Still, it doesn't matter. It's a lovely piece of work. ^^

    Damn, it took forever loading this wallpaper *sigh* I so wanted to see the full version. The red is what attracted me here, it's my favourite colour. Reading your whole description, I see you've been through a lot this summer ... ehhh, and a whole month to create this wallpaper? Amazing, I don't have that much dedication towards my walls ..

    At first glance, it seems a very old and rustic place she's in. Gazing out the window, surronding by red pigments and old treasures. She looks quite content in her humble room that's dark and antique. Some things look quite flat in the wallpaper, like the little table, but I like the shelves in the back, the sofa is quite nice. The blending is quite good, not exactly perfect, because the things still look a bit cut out, although, the look isn't bad to give it huge minus points. I like how it seems grungy and grainy. Good atmosphere and the quality is nice. I say you did nice here, a great wallpaper worthy of your hard work. Keep it up!

  13. nolove Aug 29, 2006

    woaa your skill is really amazing now emma, for what you have create in this.
    it is really a hard-wroking wallpaper i've ever seen >_<
    you blended everything to in the best way it should be, not to mention about the attractive red color ^_^ and the lovely grunge i've seen :D, this wall is one of the best of MT these days and i believe this is your best so far emma-san :)

    Yay, I'm semi-on time with this commentary this time! Normally I'm weeks - if not months - late in commenting on your work.
    Hmm... personally, I didn't like this as much as some of the other walls you've done. I'm not a big fan of the main character; though she fits your purpose for "not too anime," she strikes me as plastic-y. If that makes sense...
    But looking at the original scan versus what you did to create the wall is cool. The color red you used is rather unique; not to sound morbid, but it rather reminds me of the color of blood. But I like the design on the walls. I love the fans and lanterns that are hanging on the wall. I just adore tassles, and the ones you put in the wall look so real... I think that's one of the reasons I like the lanterns and the lamp. Anyway, all the aspects (lamp, lantern, curtain and wood designs, the girl's clothes etc.)play together very well in order to present a very oriental aura or feeling. And that couch looks like it'd be very comfortable to sit on, with it's plump cushions ^_^
    I don't know if I've told you this recently, but I admire the way you're able to take a certain scan and make it your own in a wall. I can see the resemblence between the original and yours, but I like yours so much better... I suppose that's always been the case with your walls, though ^_^ I'm looking forward to your next submission... and I hope you continue to heal well :)

    NOW THIS is what I call an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WALL WITH TONS OF WORK PUT INTO IT. Just by looking at this, I can tell that you must have put ALOT of work into it. I mean, it shows! I looove Dynasty Warriors. The game is just so much fun! Erm... but back to the wall. The colors are really..solid and youve done an outstanding job in choosing your colors. CLAMPchic above said how the red color reminds her of blood, and it does look a bit like blood, but it looks more chinese with the red colors you know? I just think that red is a chinese color (not trying to be stereotypical here). The basic wall in the bg is kind of obvious that you used the same pattern in the original scan over and over again, but you did such a great job covering it up with the two lamps, the fans, and that piece of hanging cloth. The couch and the lamp are such a nice touch. I really love how you made the room so red, and you didnt put any other light colors in it because it really emphasizes the window and the finch. it looks like the girl is sitting in a room reading a book, and the finch is calling out to her to come out into the bright world outside her room.

    I am glad you are recovering well from the surgery. You are so brave! I hope to see more of your wonderful walls!
