A bit of a change of pace with this wall...

Here we have a tender (?) moment between Seishirou-san and his mother, as he takes her place as Sakurazukamori. Seishirou has always been one of my fav X/Tokyo Babylon characters. The most twisted in a cast of pretty twisted people. ^_^

This scene is from the sidestory in X volume 16.
I scanned in this pic plus another one of Seishirou's mother, [So I could adapt her face a bit to fit this pic, because she had her eyes closed in this one] vectored the outlines and then set about colouring/painting everything. The blood took forever. O_O At least, it felt like forever.
The BG is just a simple gradient plus some a couple different photoshop brushes, and liberal use of the burn and highlight tools and overlaid layers.

Time - 4 Days
Layers - A lot - but because of my merging habit I'll never know for sure... -_-'

    OH WOW! this is really amazon! i like the simple grackground because it really made the two of them stand out. so bloody, so cool! what a great scene. great work!

  2. gaara-no-shukaku Nov 12, 2007

    Love how the blood looks, plus the vector is very nice with bold outlines. Great work, although it looks simple. :)

  3. Chloe Retired Moderator Nov 12, 2007

    Awesome coloring and vectoring and the blood is really well done! Great job!

  4. Saikusa Retired Moderator Nov 12, 2007

    Beautiful! Stunning quality with a solid vector, rich reds, and subtle snow... it somehow makes me hate Seishirou even more.

  5. ArtificialRaindrop Nov 12, 2007

    I really like how you pulled off the blood (leave it to me to admire the blood ^_^' ) Despite the awkwardness of this particular scene it still turned into a fabulous wallpaper. The strength of the outline really matches the style of the X1999 manga, too. Very nicely done!

  6. X-kai Nov 13, 2007

    oh!...Seishiro and his mom! :D
    A Very nice picture, Well done Piccolobear! ;) LOVE IT ! :)

    I love the simplicity of this wall!
    YAY for thick outlines! I love thick outlines <3
    The blood looks so cool, I love the way it turned out :)
    Excellent wall as always ^^

    Ah, nice work, especially with the blood splatter. Thick outlines against a white-ish bg go well together. Looks great.

  10. Erdbeermilch Nov 15, 2007

    Great job with this. I like the compsition, coloring,... actually everything.
    I remember I always found Seishiro's mother very pretty ( then again I don't know any ugly CLAMP characters ), too bad she was killed just a few pages after she had been introduced.

    Also yay for snowflakes ( and spoiler xD )

  11. Chattail Nov 15, 2007

    Kool wall! I luv it! The feeling is pretty intense, u got it very well!
    Two thunbs up!

  12. MapleRose Retired Moderator Nov 16, 2007

    ooh pretty. I love the soft colours juxtaposed with the dark hair and blood (good job splattering it btw) ^__^ The soft textures of the snow is a nice touch as well :)

  13. merelie Nov 17, 2007

    aaaargh, CLAMP, um, i mean, seishirou, why are you so twisted?
    but gosh, the contrast of pure white snow and crimson blood is just too much to resist
    setsuka's hair and kimono are incredibly, um, lengthy
    ...seishirou has very deep serious psychological problems XD
    thanks for sharing!

  14. drastikhate Nov 18, 2007

    Ahhh.... Blood looks real good on snow :D
    Awesome vector! XD

  15. Hikari-Sakurai Nov 19, 2007

  19. MyrrhLynn Dec 01, 2007

    Okay well all the blood kind of makes me go: @_@ waaah! But seriously I love the background which might sound wierd since it's not that complicated but it fits the main picture so well without taking any of the attention away from it. Great work!

  20. eternallegend Dec 08, 2007

    the blood has been done well and i like how you arranged your wall :D the snow adds a nice touch to the scene and i like the way the concept is portrayed :) lovely wall ^^
