Artist Comment

Last of my W?W - Commercial Sellout entries.

As you can see this wall has a lot of empty space. That's because I designed it to go with the large Reebok logo and slogan, and I like asymmetry and empty space so I don't feel any great need to go in and do a lot more redesigning on it to fill up the space where the logo was.

This wall was completely random. My only plan when I was working out what to do was that it would be my first wall that was completely vectored in any detail. [Obviously I didn't end up sticking to that...] I chose the first scan that seemed to go with one the advertising slogans on my list, which was this scan from the Japanese Comickers 2 artbook on aethereality.net
Link.

Turning a painting into an anime style vector was extremely time-consuming but very addictive. I was trying out big chunky lines and was very happy with them but that detail was lost when I shrunk the vector down to fit in the wall. I was keeping to 'complete vector' very well until the end when I had to put in the cliff in the background. I was too tired to make up an entire cliff out of me head by vectoring it, so I freehanded with my tablet and then couldn't resist adding some gradients...

I changed it from 1600x1200 to widescreen because the busy detail on one side is somewhat balanced by having a LARGE are of empty space. Also because there is so much detail on the girls that it feels wrong to have anything distracting elsewhere on the wall.

Version with text - HERE

EDIT - Link fixed - Thanks for pointing that out Fawna-chan. ^_^

You'll need to full-view this wallpaper to get the complete effect. Fabulous attention to detail and a wonderful choice of colors paired with a simple background make this some real eye-candy. Excellent job, Piccolobear!

    the only one of yours that I guessed right...

    WOW... you're crazy to vector it from that! the details.. *-* how long did it take you? And I'm glad you made it with a true vector and not succumb to brushes and gradients.

    I like the empty space, gives room for icons ^__^ and did you paint those clouds in the background? 'cause I don't remember them being there before.

    Beautiful color scheme...it's very soothing, and easy on the eyes. This is definitely a high-quality wallpaper, and--look!--room for my icons! :) Nice job.

    I love the details in the rocks, very well done. The simple background does a great job of setting off the characters rather than overwhelming them and leaves space for icons. Great wall and congrats on the highlight. :)
