1920x1200 Wallpaper

Artist Comment

My entry for vector-wallers' Welcome to ANIWOOD contest.

The movie is of course, Titanic. The scene is that pretty famous one of Jack and Rose standing at the ship's bow in that pose.

Got the inspiration when I saw This scan of Cagalli, the pose reminds me of that famous scene from Titanic. So I went to search for a suitable Athrun scan to fill Jack's spot.

Found this Athrun scan and used it for his body and face, and then this scan for the arm and hand. Since Cagalli's left hand was blocked by Kira in the original scan, I used a scan of Luna as reference. I changed their eyes so that they're both looking forward, as well as Athrun's clothes colours (since the original colours suck XD).

The background was referenced from photos I took during my vacation a few weeks ago. I was gonna paint it at first, but decided to try vectoring clouds and waves and see what I get. I ended up liking it. I blurred it a bit to show distance. For the railing, I vectored from a screenshot from phase 17, it's the railing from the Minerva.

    It's so cool how you've managed to get all the different scans to work together so perfectly! The background looks nice as well! Great work :D

    Wow. You put a lot of work into this. It came out great! Amazing combinations of source scans too.

    Great job altering the scans and the water looks crazy! Nicely done!

    very nice work, great merging job.

    BTW the 1600x1200 version is overcompressed, there's visible compression artifacts at normal zoom level along cagalli's arm and hand, and parts of athrun's jacket... I had to crop the 1920 version for my 1600x1200 screen. (though thanks for taking the time to even provide a 1600 version, a lot of people don't).

    Haha, not too long ago, I was saying to a friend that you would probably do this titanic idea.. either that or a RXJ convert to Zorro thing. Guess I was right.. :)

    I love how clean the Cagalli-and-Athrun vector is! It's great how you got it all from various scans, shows how resourceful you are. ;) The water is nicely done with all those strips... My only complain is that the light feels a little too brown... it seems to make the rail flatter too.. I mean, the two lovers are in a different light from their background... then again, I seem to be the only one who is picky about that... XD

    Maybe the rail could be a lighter shade and have a wood grain texture or something? Just a suggestion...

    Anyway, good luck, Maplerose!

    Very Creative! =)

  12. Erdbeermilch May 12, 2008

    I love this contest. :3
    Very neat vectoring and I think you've puzzled it together greatly.

  13. Sakura-Dust May 12, 2008

    XD I lost count twice while looking at all the scans you used.
    Beautiful combination! I bet the water took ages.
    Awesome use of gradients and vectoring :)
    Good luck in the contest! :D

  14. LoveBug May 12, 2008

    A beautiful vector, creative and romantic. This is awesome. The coloring is fantastic, and I was really surprised to see such a masterpiece. Oh my, this couple has a lot of impact and their closeness is well portrayed in the wallpaper. The scenery is just perfect for them. The titanic idea suited them well.

    The background could use some more design, I think... But this wallpaper is really good already. You've done a great effort in putting the scans together. You're awesome.

  19. Danny2004 May 16, 2008

    Beautiful, creative. romantic and stunning... absolutely stunning! Great work once again, MapleRose.

    I always loved that scene, and it couldn't fit any better than with them here.

  20. Aiira May 16, 2008

    So beautiful..
    I their position...
    and your vectoring of the image is really perfect..
    the scene is really blending with the background..
    I really love this piece of your Maple-san ^^
    Thank you for sharing..
    and good luck on the contest ^^

    This one is just perfect!
    Everything is placed so well together :D
    But I think the clouds are just a little bit weird, but still wonderful!
    Nice wall! :)
