a very late upload, and congratulations to everyone who was in Round 3! Sorry guys, work, holidays and family homecomings rolled into one season and basically buried me under an avalanche. ._." so this was delayed.

Clash descript: somewhere in the middle of the page

So, this is the refined version of my wall for AP Clash Round 3! I had planned on making OAA from the start but then I thought... since it's not awesome techy goodness like my 'target', sirboingal0t's epic red torn orange... I borrowed the scan he used so I wouldn't get whacked with the 'take an element of your chosen wall' rule.

Thanks to flyin' and sjade, our event organizers! Thanks also to farizthree and otaku99 for post-Clash crit.... Rizu, you jerk, stop improving so fast you put me in despair dammit = 3 = I didn't get much crit during Clash R3 though, since what everyone told me was basically the same thing... THE LIONS ARE FAT.

and they are STILL fat. I give up. Let them be obese.

The original Clash version is only available on KISUKI.


Chosen by CyanideBlizzard and Chloe

This just blew my mind.
Out of all of Shige's Original wallpaper, this has to be one of my favorites. Take a look at the details on the buildings! The tiles on the roof, the colors, the lighting and shading are just perfect.
EXCELLENT JOB, shigemitsubaki!

    I liked the clash-version better - for some reason, I can't quite get used to the new girl in the picture. But then, as far as I'm concerned, it need not have any girl at all, your skill at drawing cityscapes is amazing. No, really. Go you!

    I'm actually using the clash version on my desktop. :3 Its bluer sky and ambient colors feel more soothing to me, and the pose of the first girl is a little more intriguing/beckoning. But! Your original girl design is gorgeous too! It's neat to see the little touch ups you made here and there since the first version.

    I'm still ogling at the details and colors and...gah, I love this! <3

    One thing that has greatly impressed me about this competition is that you have crafted everything yourself. From left to right, everything looks beautifully created and such a significant amount of life breathed into it. Maybe it has something to do with my love of pretty much all that is medieval, or perhaps it's how you can paint pure artistic ecstasy with each piece that you do. Yet, no matter what it may be, nothing changes the fact that this is by far your strongest work to date.

    I must admit, I was rather surprised when you replaced the girl with another character all together. Yet I still love them both. However, it was the original character that really blew me away. Not only did you completely modify her outfit, but how you almost made a completely new character. It's incredibly creativity to not only go in and re-design her, but to modify her in such a way that she still is the same character, yet completely different is ingenius. The new female character works just as nicely and really shows off how creative you are in terms of wardrobes. Seriously, I am loving the outfits your using.

    For the first time since I've started writing comments, I really don't know what to say about this background without repeating myself or rambling on. Upon initial glance, it's quite easy to get lost in this wallpaper. From the storybook-styled landscape, to the majestic kingdom below to even your beautiful creation of wildlife (honestly speaking, I don't think the lions look that fat. Now, if you only added some black stripes and gave them some lasagna..) it's quite evident that a lot of time was invested in this. However, at the end of the day what truly steals the show for me is the level of detail to the buildings. Considering that this wallpaper was originally made under a time limit, and while I know you've made modification since then, it's simply astonishing that you could create such a detailed kingdom in such a short amount of time. This fact alone makes me wonder that if you had a greater deal of time, would everything have such a stunning level of detail to it. By far your strongest background you have constructed so far.

    I cannot honestly think of a reason not to like this wallpaper. I couldn't wait for you to make some finishing touches to this so I could put it on my desktop and it was completely well worth the wait. From top to bottom, this wallpaper is simply stunning. I can't help but to get lost in it and that alone says more than anything I've written so far. Tsu, this is proof that you are a robot.

    I know it's a copy-pasta comment, but it deserves more love.

  19. DarthTofu Oct 12, 2010

    A very well deserved highlight indeed. <3
    It's absolutely gorgeous; the background is beyond incredible.
    I do prefer the original clash version a bit, though.

  20. Fran Retired Moderator Oct 12, 2010

  21. sailorchiron Oct 13, 2010

    I honestly don't know now to describe how much this rocks. The colors...the painting...the originality...the skill... There aren't enough superlatives for this wall. Well-deserved highlight. Great job.
