Artist Comment

Another submission from me, this time it's from CLAMP's X.

Well... it's Kamui for this wall, and it's for widescreen resolution. So, to those with WXGA monitor, hope you'll like this piece. :)

The material is taken from here, and the background is modified from the stock uploaded here. I like the idea of the original scan, depicting Kamui and the end of the world. It was too bad that the original scan's BG wasn't too exquisite -- the ruins had too much simple look.

So then I stumbled into the stock I used for this wall's BG, and do the walling. Modified the scans, added some brushes and dust effects, and some more things on them (but I forget what exactly x_x ). And so this wall came out.

About the text. I firstly want to make the wall clean without it. Though, the composition seemed a little blank on the left without it, so I let it in for an addition. The red-and-dusty tone is added to give a post-apocalyptic mood in this wall, though.

And well, that's how it goes. Hope you like it. ;)


Software: Adobe Photoshop CS
Time spent: 15-20 hours, spanned in 3 days
Layers: around 30

Update @ Mar 21, 2007:

According to some advices I received, the picture seems better without the crossing text, so I removed it. Though, I still left the "X/1999", to keep the balance on the left part.

Thank you for giving feedbacks! :)

    IT is nice wallpaper but I don't like text. It looked like it doesn't belong there, or you can make text looked smaller...Text style not too bad but they really take up too much space on image. +fav from me I actually liked this wallpaper.

    This is a wicked image
    Kamui was on the sidelines for quite a while, wasn't he?
    Anyway, thanks for sharing. Very well done

    Wow! Very nicely done!

  5. Offkorn Mar 20, 2007

    Yeah, the text is a little large. I'm also not a fan of Kamui's expression, but that's not your fault.

  6. Lucciola Mar 20, 2007

    I love way you make background almost looked unreal even you made Kamui looked good on background almost unreal. I like it. OFC I agree with Sand, Text looked weird. Maybe it would better idea if you make textless version or you can make text looked so small.

    @ all

    Thanks for your comments and inputs. Now I have updated it and removed the text. The X-1999 is still kept to maintain the composition on the left part, though.

    Enjoy! ;)

    Quote by DrakenImmortalKamui was on the sidelines for quite a while, wasn't he?

    Yep, he was. Though, I find it quite interesting to see an 'evil' side of him. :)

    In the anime, he was changing personality so abruptly -- and then becoming more yaoi-ish with Fuuma around x_x . He rocks more in the earlier episodes, when he was still hot-tempered and more 'evil' protagonist. ;)
