Artist Comment

Recently, I've been hooked to some TYPE-MOON goodies -- so I think doing wall for one of their series can be a good idea. ;)

Featuring Shiki Ryougi from Kara no Kyokai, the wallpaper's concept (i.e. wandering in the forest) has been on my mind for some time. However, I didn't find a good scan to comply with it, so it was kinda left out... But then I found this Kara no Kyokai group scan a little while back. I thought it suits the idea well; hence the Shiki FG.

For the BG part, I actually planned have more greeneries on it (that is, brushing to make all the leaves) -- but in the end I got a hunch that autumn scenery work out just better; which is the wall's final concept. The rest was more to finishing touches, e.g. playing on lighting and DoF.

The tricky part? Mmm, it's gotta be while toning down the Shiki scan. X-P I want an autumn sunset, but it was toned down in purple shade. That said, I had to at least dye some parts manually to prevent the color-crash... which then resulted in the FG you can see up there.

Well, I think that's it. As usual comments, inputs, and favorite (if any) are welcome. :)

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS2

I actually wanted to submit this under "Kara no Kyokai" category, but the drop-down list only provides alphabets (it didn't load the title as it usually does). So I submit this under TYPE-MOON category. I don't know if this is some bug, though. o_0

    A bug? Maybe :\ *moves to correct category*
    The bg is very nicely done and the "toning down" is really well done! Blends in beautifully with the background. Great job!

    The character looks slightly detached from the background. Looks like different alltogether. Nice try:)

    Ah, I want to see this anime when it gets released on DVD or so.
    You really did a good job at making the BG match the scan.
