Artist Comment

Scan was originally taken from a manga chapter where Gaara fights Deidara (which I accidentally deleted it >_>). Extended the upper part of his hair, hopefully it's not odd. Original scan has no background, just pure black for me to find a good scenery. I thought of making it a dark/night wall, but ended up with orange/red scheme. It looks good actually.

Sky and clouds stock and old paper texture from Stock.xchng. Thanks to Tama for the dust brush I used for the sand and leather texture for his outer cloth. Much thanks to Rose for her lazy vectoring tutorial. <3

Movie-like version (1600x1200)

Request biggest size (1920x1200) if you want!

    oh kiddo that's such a cool sky, and sand, this wall reminds me another gaara's wall which I remembered I kept a whole month on my desktop, it looks very nice and for some reason I like very much, like fav part of the wall or whatever, the way the hands ended up...dunno

    I love the warm colours throughout, even the outlines. ^_^
    The top his hair is good, not odd at all. Great work on the sand, too. :)

    Me like, me like! Awesome scenery. I love the desert - it actually look like one!
    The best part of this work is definitely Gaara's shading - it beautifully underlines his musculature... Fab!
    Oh, and fantastic perspective!

    Dear god FINALLY! For the longest time I have been wanting a decent looking widescreen Gaara or Itachi wallpaper to use, and finally someone makes one, except this one looks great.
