This is kind of a weird wall for me in that i actually had a concept going into the wall and i stuck with it straight through to the end. I've wanted to wall Mushishi for a long time now, but i've never felt like i was up to it. I saw Tama's latest Mushishi wall though and set right to work :)

Scan is from AP galleries, far too lazy to link. Vectored it out for reasons of quality and that i hated the colour of ginko's pants. The mushi were fun to make - i took screens of mushi from the first 2 episodes or so and just recreated.

The vines were NOT fun to make - but they turned out so lovely. I did the rough sketch of the platform in my sketchbook, scanned in & vectored. I had a ton of problems making it look like i wanted to, thanks for everyone on MSN for listening to me rant about this wall :P

It was a labour of love but i'm glad i did it.

    This is really neat. The vectoring is awesome, as usual, and I'm loving the whole gray-ness of the wall. Vines look super and the color is great. Excellent job and this is going on my desktop ;)

    I send love to that wall. Great representation of the show~ Nice dark colors and those vines have really hot texturing. Ginko look perfect and those mushis are adorable <3
    font would be the one negative aspect

    this sure is interesting wallpaper ~ concept is simple looking but the atmosphere it has is really wonderful and with few items you have managed to make stylish look. when all the things are in the middle of the wall, it gives balanced feel for it yet it also makes you focus for the centre where the character is. vectoring is really neat and colouring well done. it fits nicely for the vines, creates nicely contrast when the character has black lines but the vines are lineless. vines are absolutely pretty, like the way you made shadings on them and soft green colouring is very gentle to look at. with the darkers green shaded places makes it look like it would have lines though it really doesn't have ones which is nice detail. those glimmering creatures are really fascinating, you really can't tell what they actually are which makes them more interesting. that is also reason why it gives little mysterious touch for the atmosphere and with the vines also fantasy like theme ^_^ those flower thingies look like they would have eye on the top of the glimmering part which gives eerieness yet tension. glimmering gives nicely colour touch and brighteness for the colouring. they are also nice eye catchers. the background colouring is quite neutral and since it's quite colourless since it's gray, it brings the shiny creatures and the character nicely seen. magnificent work and thank you for sharing !

    thinking about it, the athmosphere reminds me of mononoke hime's sacred forest :3 glowing stuff flying around, dark greens...

    It's sad to see how little attention this wall has received :\

    I really like the simple approach and you've done an effective and clean job on your piece.

    I stand in awe that there is a Mushishi wallpaper that is awesome (and Tama-Neko didn't make it! XD ) I had to say that - forgive me. ^_^'

    I really like the composition. It's really cool to have a "hanging" world and that you've put the text behind it. I like that you have some white highlights behind Ginko - though I'd like to see it be less triangular. It sort of looks like a mountain, but not, and my brain keeps wanting to make the shape into one. And even though I love the simpleness factor of the wall, maybe a slight gray gradient to the background wouldn't make it seem so plain. Also, perhaps a tad more blending between colors on the vector of Ginko - so the colors blurr into each other more. Awesome job making the Mushishi and the ground/vines. They look directly taken from the show (and yes, I know they technically are, but you recreated them)! I love your wallpaper and the show, I'm so glad to see others do too! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

    OMG! This is very appealing to the eyes XD I really love the whole wallie! You have really done a fantastic job making this wallie :D The vectoring is very well-done, the vines is beautiful and the little, glowing mushi you added in give a very nice touch! -nods-
    Awesome work! I hope to see more lovely masterpieces from you! (more mushishi if possible ><)

    Looks mysterious... 'economical' wallpapers are often very hard to compose - because every element brings more attention. But thanks to that, they are better :D
    This one surely has a style, and stands out.

    You did a great work!

    Minimalism is awesome. Makes me think of a floating island, has a reflective solitary kind of atmosphere. And the mushi add a type of uniqueness to it, too.
