Artist Comment

This picture is my tribute for Arsenal FC's 120th Anniversary, which comes in this year.

(for those who don't know, Arsenal FC is a football club playing in English Premier League. This club is founded in 1886, and played their first match on December 12, 1886.)

Materials:

-Yotsuba scan from 'The Art of Sister Princess' artbook, by Naoto Tenhiro (Page 37)
-Arsenal FC crest (from www.arsenal.com)
-Emirates Stadium image, from www.emiratesstadium.com

Softwares:

-Adobe Photoshop CS
-GIMP 2.2

First off: Why is it Yotsuba to be in this picture?

Well, it's because she came from England. Moreover, I adored the art of Sister Princess very much, so... there she goes.

Second: Why is it Arsenal?

Simply because I'm their fan as well. This has been my 8th year of supporting them. :D

Third: Why is there snow here?

Because now's going to be winter over there. Nah, not that alone -- this is also related with their very first match, which took place on December 12.

Alright, so here this pic goes. I realized that this is 2006 as well, and I somehow thought that it could be nice if I make a wall covering Arsenal's 120th anniversary. In addition, they also have new stadium starting this season, so... why not? ;)

The background image is the Emirates Stadium, which the club start to use from this season. Then, the rest is up on PS work -- added text on the BG, then on the FG, to give pressure on the event.

The funtime for me was when I modified Yotsuba's scan. I didn't give it for Arsenal's current outfit -- I modified it from 1998/1999 apparel, which (for me) is the coolest until now. Then I added some of this year's outfit on her cloth -- now it has the sponsor of "Fly Emirates" and a footballer shape on its chest; not forgetting the logo of course :D.

The snow effect is created using GIMP, since it is easier (and faster) to create it there (PS didn't help me this time! :(). I used 'GFlare' feature; seems that it worked out well, though.

Well, that's it. Comments and inputs are welcome :).
