Artist Comment

Tomoe Yukishiro: -'Nothing matters now. It's too late'.
Kenshin Himura: -'I'll carry with this sorrow the rest of my life.'


After two months I finished my wall (it was really hard to make this one: too many details!) I'm so happy about it. ^^

Although the final result turned to be quite different from what I expected, I think the wallpaper is really interesting.

The characters

I don't remember the site where I got the scan :( but when I saw it for the first time I totally fell in love with it and I told myself: -'You have to make a wall with this awesome pic'.

I vectored both Ken and Tomoe in Illustrator and painted them in Photoshop.

The background

It's actually a combination of two photographs: the one with the trees I found it on the Internet, the snow photo is mine n_n

I also used some filters and blending options to give the bg the final touch.

The swords

I extracted them, added some filters and changed the colour.

The title

It's rather obvious, I know... but the thing is I wanted to add a title that emphasize the dramatic tone of the picture.

Tree and blood brushes are from http://www.deviantart.com

That's all for now...

Hope you like it!

    hmm i think this wall looks good but i miss some outlines. Hmm about the brushes you use, i would prefer it when you would give the link to the persons site from deviant art where you got it from. It isn't to find them faster couse i don't use brushes too often. But it is a better credit for the person that made those brushes.
    I must say, it looks good^^

    I like the way the mood was given to the wall =D
    But for the vectoring wise you will need a little more work on it~ some of the lines looks jagged.
    Keep it up~
