Artist Comment

I sure have an obsession with girls in long dresses lately, can't help it.

Anyways, here is another wall in Art Nouveau style and this time it even has some text in it. I kinda feel like I should apologize for the stupid title though, I really wanted to put some text in that blank corner and couldn't think of anything better. Actually it was quite hard to come up with a good design idea for the bg, because the scan looks so simplistic I thought it would clash with something really detailed ( for example I wanted to decorate the crescents with jewels but had to rework it because it just looked weird). I came up with that good fortune/ luck/ 4 leafed clovers idea because I actually think that Nill was quite lucky in the manga (getting saved in the nick of time etc.), that doesn't make her the goddess of luck yet but oh well... <_<

Here's the scan uploaded by Saikusa, I just love Nill's pose and her dress, the coloring kind of recalls a peacock I think. The image was vectored as always and touched up with textures from DA!, the background was done from scratch (was real fun to do). I changed the colors on some parts of Nill several times while working, in the original there was still some bright blue/green/yellow which I changed to green/turqoise or less bright colors. The most anoying thing was that I had to vector the text because my evil grafic programm wouldn't load the font, so I went all the way around using a screenshot of the text and then vectoring it. >.< Hell has no wrath like me forced to trace fonts, but the fact that this font (found here) fits the wall so perfectly somewhat eases the pain.

I'm quite happy with the outcome here and hopefully you'll like it a little as well. Special thanks go straight to art-nouveau because that's where I browsed for resources and inspiration.

Comments are greatly appreciated and also watch out for the Nill vector (without textures/with original colors/higher res), I'll upload it as well. :pacman:

Edit: Changed the font to sharp outlines, as Euna suggested (I must have been blind to overlook the crapiness of the blurred font), however it still has green oultines. XD

For poor people like Kashikosa who only have widescreen, there's now the 1920x1200 widescreen version, think of it as an early easter egg. I gave my best with it but personally I like my 1600x1200 version best (didn't have to try fill up empty space :\ ).

Thanks for the feedback so far.

    Okay... let's start with a little complaint - WHY ISN"T THERE A WIDESCREEN VERSION?!
    Overall, the vector is beautiful, the composition looks complete - nothing to add, nothing to remove (still sulky about her almost new desktop wall) Really nice colour usage, I haven't seen a good green wallie since, like, forever!
    Oh, and yeah Nill was pretty lucky in the manga so the clovers fit the image XD

    Good job. You've chosen your colours well and the vector work is pretty good too. If there is anything I don't like, it would be the dress design. The round circly edges look kind of weird but I suppose I can't blame you since that's how the scan was. Also, the green border around the text makes it look quite blurry. Having it sharper might look nicer :) But overall, good job.

    There's been a few art-nouveau walls around lately but personally I think this is one of the best XD I adore the clovers and the circles on her dress look great to me. ^_^ It's very nicely balanced and the composition really works, and the colours are beautiful. Thanks for making such a lovely wall. :D

    Great! A version widescreen : D
    Gooorgeous Idea! It's so clever. The clover frame is just wonderful.
    Excellent job!

  8. MapleRose Retired Moderator Mar 12, 2008

    awesome clover frame ^^ and I love the colours. Yay for widescreen version! I actually like the extra design in the bottom corner of the wide-screen version, too bad you can't really fit it into the 1600x1200 version...

    Yummy! My favourite colours!
    Great Art Nouveau design, two thumbs up for its originality. The dress looks a bit weird with the round endings, but I saw the scan and noticed that it was from beginning so (though it does remind me a bit of a peacock as well).
    I will surely use it on my desktop soon.

    seems this wall was submitted just a short while before my favourite holiday- Saint Patrick's Day; so i find the colors quite well suited.

    i can't get enough of these art nouveau walls - and this is not only one of the best of those; but also yours in terms of layout in my humble opinion.

    :bows and leaves a green rose:

    Just a wonderful Art Nouveau! I love the colours! They are so fresh and the girl is very delicate and yet so beautiful (and this is great because we only see her from behind).She looks like a magnificent butterfly. Good vectoring.

    T_T this is wonderful!
    I love everything! It's incredible! The coloring is...wow, amazing! The lighting is also perfect.
    Excellent job!
