AHAHHA Which?Waller results are out!

This was my entry and nobody guess I made it >3 MWE HE HE *cackles gleefully*

When I started the wall I was thinking, what haven't I done before/in a long time? Then I thought scan extension! XD This was one of my favorite Clamp images since Arashi + sword = hawt, even though she became sorta sobby after being together with Sorata. Anyways I happily went my jolly way extending, and then smudged over almost every pixel of the scan to clean it, added lighting... and then topped it off with splatter brushes. I had a "no using other people's brushes" rule for myself too so I really broke that rule gleefully for this wall... >XD

...I'm going to get hate comments on this wall aren't I <_< *runs and hides* And yeah the fact that NOBODY guessed my wall correctly is slightly freaking me out now haha... >xD;;

Original scan was deleted off MT, so I've hosted it @ pixel ellipsis; light texture from DA!, wood texture from Stock.XCHNG, splatter brushes from synthexstock and Vinzenzo @ deviantART... I think that's it. Lol er... enjoy... and don't kill me?

Going to try to challenge crap for theme no. 86. Red so I can make figure out how vote-offs go, so this is also for the 100 Themes Project @ Instant Noodles! xD

Forgot to say additional res @ pixel ellipsis :P

    Really red and eye-catching!
    haha.. but it's nice!
    Thanks lots for this wallie! :)

  2. Lucciola Mar 11, 2007

    WOW! I'm speechless......

    It is really cool wallie of Arashi. I haven't seen good Arashi wallpaper for long time. I seen scan. You did great job cleaning up and fixing it up. Also it matches background. Adds to favourite.

    o.O Wai this wallpie it really nice~ I love the tones of red you used in it, and the lightning effect is really nice. Haha not using other ppls brushes, eh? XD I also kind of have this rule, so now I'm using only the default brushes from PS. xD;;. The character's pose is nice, and you did a very good job cleaning it... The only thing that kind of disturbs my eye is that the lines on the wall are too straight, it's just that watching the scan looking kind of like a scan [as in cleaned and all, but still a scan] it seems like the walls are too "clean", if you understand what I mean... *umm*~*cringes in fear*. But it's still a fav ^_^ Good job and sorry for the extra-long comment XD [lol]

    Why and why you made a wall with unrecognizable style like this..? Err...I'm going to kill you! >D

    I love this picture of Arashi. Great job with the background. It's so red and, at the same time, so dark.

    scan link?
    Arashi's skin tone seems to really contrast with the red kimino etc- especially her left foot and right hand there. almost "shouting" lol

    love the bg though.

  7. Ephemeral-Garden Mar 11, 2007

    Well it must be hard to guess that you actually made this wallpaper. It's really different from your usual style! >.< Definitely surprising.

    I have to say this wallpaper really is... amazing. Stunning at the same time. Arashi from X... I love the dragon behind, and so does the splatters (although that's not yours XD) I think everything is really nicely placed and the overall result is good.

    But I think that the scan... doesn't blend quite well with the background. Not clean enough I guess? A little grainy...

    But everything else is awesome. ^^

    yes, you are gonna hate the comments *run!*, 'cause you're evil! :D actually I had it narrowed down to this one, and piccolobear's (well okay, I thought for a moment that one of candy's was yours) ... and I couldn't decide which one was yours and which one was hers... and damn, I got it switched >.<

    It's so different from your usual style (and kudos to you for fooling everyone :D), I mean, your usual walls are so... simple and light, and this one is loaded with colour :) Nice scan extension, though I think the lighting could've been more... dramatic (since I think candle-light tends to give dramatic shadows).

    You know that everyone's gonna get back at you for this ;)

    oh, p.s. did you guess all of it right?

  9. Melisandre Mar 11, 2007

    My God! Amazing work :)

  10. Imashitowareto Mar 12, 2007

  11. eternallegend Mar 12, 2007

    the scan extension is nicely done and the splats add a nice touch :D i like the way the splats have been incorporated into your wall and the light textures look nice :) nice wall ^^

  12. MasterPivot Mar 12, 2007

    Excellent wallpaper.

    I am going to have to gripe that the title is a little unimaginative, though. I must have seen at least a dozen different wallpapers all named Arashi.

  13. mecphistor Mar 16, 2007

  14. PikaMoon Mar 16, 2007

    Yay~ I like this scan too. Very nice job of extending the scan. Such a gorgeous scan and I think you did it credit. =^.^= Normally don't use red wallies but this, I think I'm totally willing to make an exception for Arashi. Thanks for sharing! Favie from me. ;3

    Clamp always produces some amazing animation and images, and this image is no different.

  20. mystvearn Mar 17, 2007

    very nice wallpaper. Is there a sharper version with distinct charcacter lines, cause I think that will be better

  21. enchantment Mar 17, 2007

    love how you did the scan extension :D love the splats of blood across the room :D and also nice cleaning :) nice wall~^^

  22. diabolique Mar 22, 2007

    I stay with this one for a long thime in my desktop, since you posted here at MT and I really have to say something about the light in the whole wall, it's absolutely fascinating. This game with bright/shadowns is perfect for the scene, and all the detals, since her kimono at the light reflected in the blade...I loved every little peace and since I love Arashi too, I think you can imagine what I think.

    + fav

  23. pokomotto Apr 02, 2007
