Artist Comment

"Angel's Egg ( Tenshi no Tamago ) is a Japanese anime feature film produced by Tokuma Shoten in 1985. A collaboration between popular artist Yoshitaka Amano and director Mamoru Oshii, it incorporates surrealistic and existentialist qualities but very little dialogue, making it a commonly cited example of progressive anime."

Scan from Yoshitaka Amano's artbook "The Virgin" taken from here.
Patterns taken from Hybrid Genesis.

Took me about six hours of active work and two more days of pondering and meddling to finish this wall. I chose the title because that's my association when I think about that girl, somehow too innocent ( too trustful may fit as well ).
Maybe you're sick of my thick outlines but I guess it's just my style of vectoring. Personally I think it's pretty hard to vector most of Amano's art, wonder why I always end up doing it anyways... Maybe you also think it looks empty but I decided against text and much stuff in the background, so you can simply gaze at her peaceful face.

I don't think this anime is very well known ( let's say compared to the mainstream stuff, Naruto or Bleach for example), but I found it very pleasant. Even though there really is very little dialogue, I found the imagery and music really make up for it ( if you think little dialogue is a flaw that is). It's rather hard to understand the movie and I have to admit I haven't been able to come up with an interpretation, but it's fun for me to look for possible meanings and symbols.

Hope you enjoy this a little and because DREAM always wants 1600*1200 resolution, you get it in 1600*1200 this time.

    I think the line art is amazing, cause it can stand there alone without any shading. It looks great with thick outlines, gives a strong impression to the soft pastel you've used. Nice job!

    The simple lines really stand out. Full of Simplicity :)

    Angel's Egg is one of the most challenging et cerebral anime out there. Amano-sama is much harder to vector with all his light, fine lines. Lady Erdbeermilch, I love your unique vectoring style- it is very soft yet retains details. I am drawn to the details on her face and her hair.

    Wow, great job vectoring Amano's art. I'm trying... and failing. xD I like your vectoring style, it's so beautiful!

    The anime is definitely hard to watch without a broader knowledge of Christian symbology and can seem meaningless to many people. Not my favourite, though definitely one of Mamoru Oshii's best works.
    BTW, I hope you can feel the lovin' I am sending you for the great addition to my Yoshitaka Amano wallpapers' collection :) .
