Artist Comment


my submission for the MT Knockout 2010 Competition against Ephemeral-Garden. the theme was "welcome to my world". yes, i know more than a few people are wondering - dream, what the hell is this? please allow me to explain, initially; i had a worked out wall (on my sketch pad) of a non-asian artiste whom i admire. this required the procurement of 800mb + artwork file which took several days (doesn't every1 have a fast connection?). then.. i found that the b&W scans quality were so poor that i couldn't vector them. ..so.. i eventually had 3 other options. 1 had slight nudity (tastefully done of course- my current project) and one of the others was basically a screenshot of a commissioned amv. i decided it wasn't original enough- time was marching down and i decided to select an artist whom i love and hasn't ever been walled before as far as i know. enter Taniguchi Kazuko.

instead of taking the theme literally i decided to take it figuratively. my/your/his/her "world" shares one constant after all- it is a world upon which i/you/we/they reside. my duty was to give a glimpse into her world and her emotions via atmosphere. looking back this was a tactical error- but i stand by it.

method- Illustrator CS4.
source: Taniguchi Kazuko
other color: Sei-iki

btw- special thanks to kuroimisa for hosting and allowing me to participate and congrats to lady ephie.

dream out.

    I really liked the art and I thought it was a great take on the theme. <3 Plus I have a tendency to lean towards purple things these days ;D

    I really like this wallpaper - it's clean, moody and have great pastel colors.
    I'm not sure about lineart, though - it' a bit stiff, I think

    I like this wallpaper, never heard of the artist but it's absolutely the kind of style that I adore. Love the colors too. Only have the feeling that it's not totally complete... but thanks for your submission!
