Artist Comment

Another Nill wallpaper, and again it's widescreen and 4:3.
This time around it's a vector from a rather small image I found on OneManga, the whole scene was rather adorable. I'd just ignore such emo rants (I've become rather blunt when it comes to whining) but unlike me Nill is a cute girl so she cares.
There wasn't really much to this wall exept vectoring, I also tried some falling in light effects but I don't know how I feel about that yet, if anyone knows a good tutorial for this let me know. I also had some trouble picking the colors and I made slight changes to her dress.

When I started I had something really spectacular in mind, but when I look at it now it seems kind of boring to me.

Textures from DA! and patterns from Hybrid Genesis.

Time spent on this wall: 12~15h

Hope you enjoy and here's the 4:3 version.

    Awesome work with the colouring of the scan. The colours you chose are harmonious, the lighting wonderfully set. This is absolutely gorgeous I love everything about this wall, Nill is just waay too cute!
    Personally for me this is a spectacular wall even if you don't think so... (Definitely shows you who the artist here is...)
    PS. regretfully I can have only one wallpaper, so for now the nouveau Nill stays XD

    It's no secret that this is one of my favourite manga series. I've seen this image used in hundreds of icons & banners, but this is the first time I've seen it successfully used in a wallpaper, and a vector.

    It's an interesting combination of dark foreboding colours with the graceful pose & movement of her hair and dress. You've captured the moment perfectly, and you do yourself an injustice to call this 'boring' or just a vector. This is a classic reproduction & a beautiful example of artistic interpretion of a tiny black & white image.

    ever since seeing that image of nill (first time as part of a web layout and second time when i read the manga), i've wanted to wall that scene. (i've been procrastination it though.) xD you beat me to it and you've done quite a nice job. just a couple of things though: i don't quite like the darker layer right next to the highlights of her hair (probably a personal style thing); the shading layers of her skin seem too grayish; and at the top of where her right wing is attached to her back, there is this semi-circle that is neither the color of the wing or skin...looks kinda like the shading color on her arms, actually.

    my nit-picky points aside, i applaud your effort and skill at transforming a manga image into a colored piece. :]

    Wow. Sweet vectoring :D I really like this ^_^ Although the transition from her skin to her wings bothers me a bit. I don't know why though. Overall, this wallpaper still looks great. Awesome job :)
