Artist Comment



wall is dedicated to kuroimisa ^^ obviously, i dare not say this wall is worthy of an artist of her stature. this design was conceived to "promote" lady kuroimisa's "Minitokyo Knockout 2010 Competition" held in March. besides being one of finest wallpaper crafting artisans i have ever seen; she also has shared many great artists, such as Kunie Kanbara. i decided to make a humble attempt with an artwork i found on her site and decided to avoid layering the work with shapes and such and try to make a virtually complete typographic styled wall within the confides of her work. the vector and typography were done solely in Illustrator.

artiste: Kunie Kanbara
source: clicky
alternative wall: Sei-iki

intelligible comments and constructive criticism are always appreciated.

so back to the contest- join up soon.. very few places are remaining. note: to any contestants who join up later, i will add you later under rebel-soul-kaze and lady Regenbogen names. kuroimisa is offering one of her very own copy of Kunie Kanbara's "Echo" as a prize. be sure to check out the sneak peek video

    Heh! Nice. *snugs away

    New Kunie scan! *grabs* lol! I think both me and Fran offered to sell our souls XD

    anyway, interesting design. I like how you put all the combatant's names along the curves of the hair. I do however, wish that the lines are more varied in weight, and tapered at the end (using fill path instead of stroke path, or have simulated pressure)... also, the cheek circle looks slightly out of place with that texture and outline.

    see you at the war! >D

    The smell of blood, tears and murder is on the air :3...god how i miss this feeling before a competition

    Back to the wall, love it from top to bottom, nice colors, idea and the font is pretty nice and fits on the style of the rest, just have to agree with maple about the weight on some lines, specially on the hair.

    Bonsoir Lord Dream,

    I really enjoy the idea of your wallpaper, I can hardly wait until the competition starts or like Rebel said: The smell of blood, tears and murder is on the air... lol

    I agree with Rebel and maple concerning the lines.

    so yes, see you at the war! \O/
