Artist Comment

I felt like making a wallpaper out of this scan. I liked the vibe it gave off... It kind of reminds me of myself, even through troubling times, music is always there to lighten your spirits.

I left the dog out on the music player, because it was a little disturbing. It looked like it was getting an enema with a chopstick. Lol. ewewew.

I spent 3 days altogether on this wallpaper. Day 1: Outlining. Day 2+3: Coloring and finishing touches

    Another SZS wall from you! The texture adds a nice, rustic touch to it, and goes well with the old-fashioned light fixtures, the circular gold frame as well as the warm glow. I like the Japanese wave pattern on the futon too! Vector is as clean as always.. Now, for the nitpicking (Sorry).

    While I like the sunlight filtering through and the glow from the light bulb, the rest of the room's lighting could do with a little fix.. The paper window doesn't quite look like light's shining through it.. A gradient perhaps? And maybe some shadows of foliage or something so it looks like it's actually daytime out there.
    Where the light hits Sensei's hair, there ought to be some bright streaks, to complement the look. Likewise with the huge gramophone (is that what's it's called?) Give the gold a little gleam, and shadows behind it, on the wall, since the sunlight's coming from the opposite direction.. That means the shadow underneath it will have to be adjusted, I'm afraid.. And there should be shadows underneath the music holders too, though I can't blame you since the scan didn't have them..
    All in all, the extra sunlight gives it the homey, relaxed feel I think you were going for. But then that means shadows and all that have to follow suit..

    Still, yes, I get the message. See, even a depressed guy like Sensei can sit back and relax when there's soothing music to listen to. :)

    By the way, the Shouji link is off.. Just to let you know..

    Good job, considering the scan! ^^ See you!

    wow all the details and vector are just great i think my eyes will drop out
    i see you replaced shadows,but still you missed shadow on the music stander, it should be on half of it below, also shadow of his kimono beside his leg on right side is not needed or you should just cut the shadow in half .....sorry if you dont understand it
    but still its excellent work
