Note: Wow my cheap internet finally sucks to the point where I'm actually happy about shelling out more $$ to Comcast for high speed internet... :angry:

I've fallen fathoms in love with Nodame Cantabile. It's the best series I've watched in a long time that's made me hyper-excited and constantly craving for MOAR xD I had to satisfy my raging fangirl desires and threw together a quick screenshot wall of Nodame and Chiaki... probably one of my favorite scenes in the series so far, where Nodame is like "Chiaki's guard is down! GYABOO~~~!" XD Anyhow, if you haven't watched the series yet, I highly highly recommend it... especially if you liked Honey & Clover, as Nodame's done by the same people and there are also some similarities in the story (e.g. Nodame's about music school students XD). I read 1.5 volumes of the manga and it was amazing... hilariously funny, but I'd give the anime an edge because you actually get to hear the classical music that they play <333

Vectored outlines and basic hair shading from this screenshot in Illustrator; quickly painted in PS with hard round brush. Much thanks to Gids and Tama for looking and critiquing :]

Hopefully more Nodame walls to come from me lol... I'm seriously adoring this series right now XD

Additional res as always @ pixel ellipsis :]

    Aww...I love that scene. It's so cute. XD

    I don't have permission to view the screenshot >_<
    But anyway: great job vectoring though the painting (only on the hair) seems a bit messy. Other than that, nicely done! I love the colors ;D

    I already commented on AP, but I love it so much that I'll do the same over here! Great work!

    After reading Chloe's comment, though, the hair does seem a bit sloppy.. ah well, it doesn't take away from the wallpaper all too much. :)

  5. Ionae Aug 12, 2007

    Cute! I really ought to watch Nodame... next week maybe, when I finally have some time...
    You used Illustrator? How much "better" is it than PS for vectors? I only tried out PS recently and use it only for vectoring, so I might aswell give Illustrator a try...

    I can definitely relate to the Nodame love, I can't get enough of it! Will be using this wall for sure, it's a very appealing interpretation of one of my fav Nodame-Chiaki moments. I quite like rough[ish] painting and the colours you've used are gorgeous. ^_^

    Mugya~! One look a the title and I knew this was a Nodame wallpaper XD
    I like it, especially the soft colours and outline are lovely. But her hand looks a bit weird.
    Can't wait for more Nodame Cantabile wallpapers from you :D

    Love the series - after 'Hana Yori Dango' and 'Hanazakari no Kimitachi e' this is a great read for a bit more mature people. A devoted shoujo fan, as you can see :) .
