Artist Comment

After catching up to the latest Air Gear chapter, I felt I had to have its art on my desktop, and as soon as I saw this scan:


I knew I had to have a go colouring it in, trying to convey the atmosphere and the "wow-ness" when I first read the chapter!

It took a while choosing what colours to have as it was not what Ikki would usually wear, while trying to get it to work well with the overall colours of the wallpaper. In the end i settled for a bluish-type wallpaper as it would go well the starry night atmosphere.

I also did a lot of tweaking with the background stars and clouds,to try and have it more suit the image. There were a few changes here and there but in the end I was happy with it.

As for the bird(?) in the background I actually had no idea what colour its meant to be. Its never been coloured in the manga or seen in the anime. Though since one of Ikki's nicknames is Crow, and they usually have a crow to symbolically represent him riding his ATs I went for the darker coloured feathers.

So...that's about it, hope you enjoy and tell me what you think.

Btw, I submitted this wall a few days ago on animepaper.net, for those of you who might recognize it. Though my account name is different there so I had to change the sig to match the name here :)

    I think you've made a perfect choice with the colours, in fact it almost looks offcial! Very moody & atmospheric that fits the setting perfectly. Thanks for sharing it here too :)
