Personal Series Wallpaper 1 - "Ichijin no Kaze"

A single gust of wind blows past
Causing the snow to swirl around me
I give it everything I have,
My thoughts, my tears, my heart,
And hope that it reaches you
Because there's no greater hopelessness
Than not being able to hold onto the one you love.

Hi minna, it's been a while :) I wrote that, to reflect the wall. Or more like, the wall reflects it. It's not that well-written but I thought it matched the wall, the title, the song it's named after, and Hiromi and Noe. Plus, it's not in my Personal Series for nothing...(I think it got the idea for the name "Personal Series" from you Kitten-chan, so thanks for that <3)

The title, "Ichijin no Kaze", is the name of a song from the True Tears OST. A truly beautiful piece, and one of my favourite OST tracks ever. You can hear it here.

I started this wall a long time ago, I can't believe I put it off for so long. I was always waiting for the perfect True Tears image to vector and wall, and when I saw this I knew it was it. (The image is from a PDF on the official website.) Vectoring the girls was fairly easy.I just adore the character designs from True Tears. And I loved the colours of the image also.

Then came the wall.
-The things I wanted to portray in this wall were: solitude, distance, cold, solemn, unsure, and maybe some angst. Without making it a dark wall. I know that Hiromi and Noe are together, but they really appear more alone, ne? So I put them In the middle of nowhere, on a cold snowy day. There are houses in the background with the tree, but they're too small to see, I think. The background from the mountains down is based on this scan. I redid it to fit my wall, with repainting, recolouring, and cloning.
-The sky is part of an old painted wall I was working on. I never finished it, but at least the sky came in handy. I had to change and repaint some parts. I didn't want the sky to have too much colour. I wanted it kind of grayish, to keep the solemn look, but tinting it purple made it pretty ^^ I added slight hints of pink and orange; sunset colours.
-Then was the snow. I didn't want the usual "blurred round white ball" that I usually do. In True Tears, they have truly beautiful and realistic snow, so I drew some inspiration from that. I tried to give the snow some shape, and made them all different. I guess it looks alright.
-I wasn't going to use the textured version as the main version, but it just makes the wall more dynamic I think.

And so here it is. Time for stats I guess.

Now I apologise for my absence, I don't know why I have such a hard time doing things. But I'll try my best to come around as often as possible.
I hope you enjoy this wall (please no ripping). Thanks to all who comment, fave, or full-view!~
(Oh, and sorry it's only in widescreen! It just doesn't work as 4:3. Even I can't use it :P)

    Oh me? yea I gotta continue those ^^;
    Welcome, I thought you were having a "me" moment...
    All your walls have this innocence to them,
    very pretty and delicate.

    Beautiful vectoring, your back!
    I think the back ground is very well done,
    as expected from you...maybe blurring the tress a bit
    to give it that far away feel but not to much.

    It's so good to see a wall from you,
    it's not easy finding walls that move you and of course
    no one has your style in it :3 Great job.

  2. YoruAngel866 Jul 03, 2008

    glad to see a new wall from you, and it's true tears so it's a plus :3
    as always, vectoring work is fantastic, and your painting skill as awesome as ever ^^
    I can really feel those emotions in the wall...a message... I can't really put it in words... ^_^' (oh my comments sucks >.<)
    I'm really loving this one, perhaps it has become one of my favs from you due to the emotions on it.
    The Blue Version is really pretty as well ^.^

  7. Scampi Jul 03, 2008

    Yet another beautiful wallpaper from you as expected. A snowy scene always makes me happy even though it's meant to be sad. This vector is clean and neat as always. Excellent job!

    So beautiful Ash-chan..
    Although I envy your vectoring and wallparing skills. I still can't understand the photoshop thing. xD
    Anyways this is a very beautiful wallpaper ash-chan
    I love it..the images you used really fit the background really well.
    Winter feeling...
    What I see.
    Is somehow there waiting for something or someone to arrive? I think..
    Anyways love it..nad is that snowflakes falling?
    Anyways love the idea and keep up the good work..

    EDIT: Sorry for the long comment. I actually didn't say anything different than the other comments. Didn't I?

    Anyways once agian..Great job on this ash-chan ^^

  16. clanlax Jul 05, 2008

    Simple, clean but amazing. Really 5/5 stars. Great job Ash^^

  17. abul Jul 05, 2008

    u wanted a mean comment - get one >:D
    well i cant complain about vectoring since you're the only person out here that knows how to do it perfectly [well i dont count myself]
    is snow really transparent? never seen it like that
    the background looks too sharp, its afar, so why is it so clear?
    dammit, i cant find a thing to criticise :(
    well ill only add that the sky is awesome and you did a great job :D

  18. xAnime4Lifex Jul 05, 2008

    I like the sharp background...after all it's anime, it doesn't have to be photo-realistic. Speaking of the background...it's my favorite part of this wallpaper. :) It's crisp and just gives that tranquil feel that you feel on a winter day. Which is the best thing about winter days. Well then again..with how close we are to the two girl's we probably would hear the girl on the right breathing since you can see her breath. XD

  19. minamiyukihimenonaka Jul 05, 2008

    Long time no see, Hikari-Chan!
    When looks Truetears thumbnail, I guess it's must be you!

    I love snow, even it's summer here!

  20. Sinever Jul 06, 2008

  21. Lariel Jul 06, 2008

    Dunno why, but I got hook of the song when I saw this vector. XP
    Clean and exquisite; very much like ash-chan.

  22. Omone Jul 08, 2008

    I will definetly use this wallpaper in the next winter season. It so adorable.
    The vector is amazing, well done as always
    but the background.. I am not sure.. I think it's .. I am speechless.. It looks so great *-* I totally love this work of you =D
