Kiri - The Route Of Infection Kanaria Wallpaper: Corrosion

Artist Comment

Hello, little people :D

This is my first time submitting to minitokyo, and I still somewhat lost @-@
I've got several WIPs rotting away stashed somewhere, but I spotted the scan a few days ago and had to wall it (my WIPs should be developing abandonment issues about now...).
He's so pretty. Isn't he pretty? I think he's pretty. <3

At first I wanted to create a watercolor sort of wall (this is kind of what I had in mind), but then I added a bunch of textures and it ended up completely different -- sort of grungy... >->;; I really rely too much on textures.
The birds were from an old vector I did, and the typography is just the series' name.

Resources:
Watercolor stock from absinthes-stock@DA
Watercolor brushes from mcbadshoes@DA
Used this scan.

    Neat! I like the grungy texture and the water color effects you used! I wish I could dl it and fullview it (mt's server is still being uncooperative).
    I just think his ear...is weird. O.O It's like it's too high and too far back. lol

    I like it.
    The gradient from white the dark works very well.

    Awesome grungy wall! This kind of grungy wall reminds me the grungy
    generation in the past years, well of course at my time which i'm very very
    old member here in MT grunge wallies are on the trend! And the wall you made
    is one of them! XD The textures used are cool and the colors are nice as well.
    Love the simple background + the simple vector fits the whole grungy concept!
    This one goes to my fav! ^^, great job!

    I think he's pretty too. c: The birds and the grunge remind me of Ergo Proxy.

    Hmm, not much to say for a nice minimalist wall. Nice colour choices.

    My one thing of note is the lineart; your texture makes the lineart rather pixely. I think it's generally caused by, uhm, I believe they're Layer Modes. Oh. Wait. Blending modes! It tends to happen a lot with blending modes, so just something to keep in mind for next time.

    He's prettyyyy... XD

    I like the color scheme and the simple approach to his vector; the grungy textures actually go pretty well with it. Nice job on this! XD

    I love the bronze/earthly color in this wall... it makes the character even more oh so sexy. Nicely made and well executed wall indeed. Thanks for sharing you work!
