This is, what's the word...amazing? :D The roses, the lamb, all of it looks so great. Awesome vectoring here!
Maybe with this wall I'll finally get the urge to use leaves in my walls out of my system... Right now I feel like I never want to look at another leaf again. >_<
OK then - Cain and his little black lamb were vectored and colourized from one of the many gorgeous Kaori Yuki scans submitted by Madoshi Kurefu, which can be found here - LINK
And I'm happy to say that's the only part I need to credit. Everything else came out of my head, since I'm trying to push myself out of my habit of doing walls which are just basically recreated scans in a wallpaper size... Granted that it's not all that original, and I probably got the idea from all the Tukuji Nao scans I've been collecting recently, but I'm still pretty pleased with it. It's a step forward, anyway.
UPDATE - Since people weren't digging the flat grey so much I've updated with the other version I had. Still simple, but it was my fav version. [But the person I asked for a second opinion preferred the grey so I submitted that]
UPDATE AGAIN - Okay, thanks everyone for the constructive criticism. ^_^ I've updated the BG again.

Oh man, the title of this wallpaper reminded me of that awful "Black Sheep" movie. >_> Can't believe I watched that. Anyways, the vector looks awesome! The coloring job looks really well done, and I like the textures used on the gate, as well. Great work! :)

OMG! this look so amazing! great background, love the roses, it fits goes with count cain so well. great work!
Fran Retired Moderator Nov 27, 2007
Wow! I love the vector!
The roses look perfect, the gate is also very cool.
But I wonder why you didn't add a background...it looks kinda..empty.
Other than that, excellent job!

wow, you're crazy to put all those flowers and leaves in XD (they look like they're individually painted instead of brushes). Nice colouring, and I like the texture of the lamb. I'm not too sure about that flat grey background though. I mean, it's nice to keep it simple so the focus will be on the foreground, but it looks a bit bland with just a flat colour, so maybe use a gradient or something? that'll also help with the perspective ^__^

Wow! Such awesome vectoring!
The lamb looks great and the colors fit well together. The background (beyond the gate) is a bit empty, but everything else is coolio. Great job!

Ok I simply cannot leave this work without leaving a comment. Why?! Coz it's so gorgeous and well-done. Congrats...Details of your work were the main thing that attract me most. They just seem to be everywhere! I also like the contrast and variety of colors that has been used in your work. They're very pretty altogether. Keep up the great work. Hope to see more wonderful works form you :)

Did you actually draw those flowers, leaves, an everything on the background? They're just so incredibly cool. Great job on the painting, especially the details on the lamb.

You've turned one of my favourite Count Cain scans into a wallpaper and what an amazing wallpaper! I love all the details and your coloration is fabulous! *.*
Maji Nov 27, 2007
Wow, I didn't expect this picture of him to be walled :o
Awsome work on the vectoring, and all those details (even his eye color! *-*)
Just one more word: Perfect. <3
Idril Nov 27, 2007

I love the red rosesyou added too... but... the background behind the fence looks a little empty and with an one solid color >.<

Waah! So handsome :D
Hanazaki Nov 29, 2007
Not many people actually try to vector Kaori Yuki's scan. This one is so stunning. Almost like a real scan. Great job!
melymay Nov 30, 2007

lol, I saw abul's quoted comment in his guestbook, and it made me laugh.
Anyways, since I've never really properly looked at your gallery (sorry!)
well yeah, it's amazing. I'm totally digging his eyes. It's all glowy and sharp, almost psychotic looking, but has this great dream-like feel that's as comforting as it is creepy.
not to mention those roses are crazy! xD

ArtificialRaindrop Dec 07, 2007
This has to be the best Cain wallpaper I have ever seen! I've been wanting to make another wallpaper from this series for a while, but now I'm kind of intimidated (it's gorgeous!) ^_^' The detail from your painting looks fantastic, and it looks like an official piece of art. I love it!
wakeupangel Dec 13, 2007
Gorgeous coloring! It looks so smooth and perfect! I adore Kaori Yuki's artwork and it's a joy to see this. Thanks for sharing! And thanks for the photobucket link to it, too. ^_^
