Please full view the wallpaper and also the original scan and Please read too.

Finally a Bishie wallpaper as promised! This is my first reCG, first bishie, first gamme and first 3D wallpaper. ( Man, too many firsts)

I was already planning to do a bishie wallpaper before school opening so I have to choose between Tsunayoshi Sawada, Primo Vongola Toushirou Hitsugaya, Athrun Zala, or some bishie in Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan and Hiiro no Kakera. While thinking of who to wall, I picked up the PSP and played Crisis Core then it suddenly stike me! HOW CAN I FORGET FINAL FANTASY VII (SEPHY, GENESIS AND OF COURSE CLOUD!). I looked for a scan of cloud, most of them have been walled and the rest are fan arts. Screenshots are definitely low quality but then I stumbled upon this screenshot from zerochan.net clicky it's HD size but not HQ. so I thought I'd give it try. Process picture found below.

At first I was planning to go the easy way - no extracting, just brushing here and there and adjust lights but I'm not at ease when I dont spend a long time doing walls. so I begin extracting the scan and reCGing it part by part. Firstly, I did cloud. reCG him and added more hair details. Then I went to the 2 buster swords. After that I went to the remaining BG and I say it is definitely a pain because I want to retain the texture/ the rusty feel of the BG but if I do nothing about it then it will be pixelated. so I slowly painted it and then overlay it with texture ^^v then faded some parts of the flooring + blur them a bit. It's texturized okay...

I checked the whole wallpaper so far and I find cloud still to grainy so I went to vector this time then painted it a little
I did the sky. At first it was kinda dull so I reworked on it to give it more light. Then I added some feathers and poof! here it is.

Thanks to Nysha, Kitten, CloudGer and christabel for the tips

    Nice re-CG-ing, lol! I like your clouds/sky better than in the original scan and I must say the atmosphere looks better and more realistic like this. The only thing that bugs me a bit are the feathers; they look kind of jagged and too blurry in some places...

    Other than that, nice job on this! :)

  3. VisualDepth May 28, 2010

    Looks great to me =D
    It would be nice if you could share a version without the feathers (probably just my preference)

    Awesome work, keep it up xD

    Like VisualDepth wrote, would be nice with a version without the feathers. I associate feathers more with FF8 than FF7. But still, the wallpaper is very impressive! Everything really blends together and I really like how you've emphasised on Cloud. =) Keep up the good work! *thumbs up*

    well, i don't mind the feathers =D it kinda suits the bg.
    just wished there wasn't that huge ass feather blocking the sword in the foreground =\

    this is very nice wallpaper.. you make Cloud look really awesome and the cloud sky is very good too... My only complain will be the big feather that cover the sword.. I think it will look better if the feather is not there...

  12. HoshinoSora12 May 29, 2010

  13. Shugotenshi-Alice May 29, 2010

    I like this,I say that you're a genius and thanks

    Ohhh, looks pretty!
    I like the whole atmosphere on this wallpaper, you certainly created a very special mood.
    There are some things you should take in consideration, the feathers look very repetitive, and the one at the left side looks kinda enlarged when it should be more blurry since it's supposed to be a sort of close up. Maybe if you added different kind of feathers and in different shades it would look better, I think.
    The blurring trick would apply to the swords too, it would give the wall a sense of depth.
    Other than that, I really love the CGing you did here, and kudos to you for trying out new styles 8)

    Heh, I didn't notice this was here too xd

  17. bukx May 29, 2010

    cloud looks really cool~

  18. kamuinoyume May 29, 2010

    Nice! Though, Cloud looks kind of weird, the BG is spectacular and the clouds look great.
