OMG, full-view, please!

What does the really long title mean?
"Koko wa Samurai no Kuni da" basically means "This is Samurai country/land" (and it also happens to be the name of my favorite song on the OST). I fell in love with this anime/manga ever since the preview in my Monthly Shonen Jump in Janurary 2006. I'm not going to go into the detail about what it means in relation to the wall, but I can say "GO WATCH GINTAMA!1!"

Anywho, this wall is completely vectored! Even my ugly rocks (which were done from scratch 'cause my internet wasn't working so I couldn't get any new stock). You can get the .PNG of the vector here @ EDD. The background swords are duplicates of Gintoki's sword 'cause I'm waaaay to lazy to vector new ones.
Original scan.
To be honest, the background is rather empty. I couldn't think of anything that would make it seem fuller without making it too cluttered and whatnot. So any suggestions would be appreciated.
Oh, and rain never falls down, it falls on an angle, so I'm not changing the rain!

Texture from DA! and cloud stock from Mayang.

Umm... I think there was more to say, but I can't remember :\

More resolutions available @ EDD as well as a Rain tutorial =D

    I like the sky, and maybe you could add some blood in the sword at the very front?

  12. Fran Retired Moderator May 26, 2007

    Finally! I don't know what the heck happened on the morning that your wall didn't show T_T
    Awesome vectoring as usual, as commented on AP

    Excellent one Chloe!
    Keep it up <3

  13. Sinever May 26, 2007

    your vector is very neat & clean....I really like it :)
    congrats Chloe-chan its featured :)

  14. IzumiChan May 26, 2007

    Woah, so cool~ O.O XD
    I loved the rain, the sky is so great~ >u<
    The blur on the left sword is perfect, it shows the perspective, very well made~
    But... I think the one in the right is too blurred... it kind of looks like a resized scan... XD
    The vector is very well-made and the atmosphere just screams ''coolness!'' XD XD
    Great work! :)

  15. rika23 May 28, 2007

    Domo Arigatou for the toturial desu~!

  16. springheeljack May 28, 2007

    awsome wall man I like the rain
    overall well done

  17. Elves May 29, 2007

    I really like the subtle texture on their clothes, and even though the swords are all the same one I think that just by changing the hilt colors it makes them all seem unique.
    And I'm going to be a pain in the a$$ because I've seen rain fall straight down, but there was no wind. So that's just a technicality, but it does happen. ;) And this matter doesn't affect the fact that I really like the wall as is - I think the stark background adds to the desolation of the battlefield. Great job!

  18. moshiyoshi Jun 02, 2007

    This is really great! I think you did a great job with the vector, and the multiple swords are wonderful, too! The depth of field in this is spectacular, and, in short, great work! Makes me want to look into this series, so thanks for that too! XD

  19. pamkips Jun 02, 2007

    lol, all it means is wayy more icon space <3
    love it chloe, it's dark and the rain looks so awesum
    *runs to check rain tutorial*

    Lovely wall chloe-chan! ^^ Vector as always is excelent, and as the whole wallpaper is vectored... everything is great! :) The background is really nice, I don't think it's too empty, I think it would be too crowed otherwise. I looove the rain :3 And the whole wall gives a sad feeling but peaceful at the same time. Really nice wall! ^^ keep it up!

    Gintama XD Ok now I do have to look at all my notifications from the last two months in case I missed something. XD
    Thanks for sharing this XD There's so nothing about Gintama! I don't understand why it's so not popular...
    I think the background is perfect, well anyway this is just my kind of background, gray and cloudy and raining...
    Nice vector also the 2 looks cool. Though I don't understand why Gintoki has so much hair, his head looks a bit deformed because of that.
    Don't know if you could do something for his head, if you vector him again some day.
    Beside that, I like very much, love the colors :)
    A bientot!
