Artist Comment

Just a simple wallpaper. I saw this interesting photo when browsing Stock Exchange for unrelated stocks, and liked the striking color combination, and the strong diagonal lines in the image. I wanted to make a monochromatic wall with the purple and yellow the image had, and figured that something from Ai Yazawa would be bold enough to go with the scheme. I found the scan of Yukari already sitting down a good match, although I had to alter the positioning of her legs so she sat on the stairs better. Instead of shading, I used the patterns from the original scan for the few areas of different colors.
Since the scan is from the "Lonely in Gorgeous" disc, and she does look lonely yet all dolled up on those stairs, the title stuck. And if you don't like the text, it'll only take you a minute to remove it in Paint.
Oh, and the butterfly is stolen from my Yuuko wall.

    Great use of color and the vectoring is neatly done as usual. Great job!

    for some reason, and I know that it was the main purpose, the colors are kind of disturbing to me, but that's due the fact I usually tend to follow warmer tones, however I talk from the design, the vector is pure clean and the way you managed to place yukari at you favor is remarkable.

    Very bold colours and great concept design. Plus, as usually, flawlessly executed.

    It's VERY Yazawa-san way to mach colors ^^, She use it all the time at Parakiss and I really love how you saw the original photo and had a *click* to remember her style and make a recognizable wall.

    I dare to say it's an iconistic job, you traduce perfectlly the meaning of 'Lonely in Gorgeus'. Thank you so much for that!

    +fav, of course ^^
