Artist Comment

After watching the first episode of Tactics (courtesy of Kev and his AnimeYuki fansub group) I enjoyed the fact that the tengu (Haruka) is voiced by surly-angsty seiyuu extraordinaire, Sakurai Takahiro. That's a shallow enough reason for me to follow the show. And since I had this lovely Tactics anime scan from several months ago, why not put it to use? There were a bunch of annoying text boxes so I traced it to get rid of them, and also so I could extend the scroll at will and make it look however I want. Since the logo and the manga cover artwork (at least what I've seen) use a lot of Japanese pattern motifs, I elected to use a bunch of patterns as well. It turned out green because the scroll was green, and that's about the only reason why.
The text on the scroll and the background are excerpts from "The Art of War", a famous treatsie by Sun Tzu. I chose it because I needed to replace the text on the scroll and wanted something a little less random than random typings. It's excerpted because the font, Sword Kanji, couldn't handle a lot of the simplified Chinese characters from the text I copied nor any of the punctuation marks, so don't try reading it. It won't make much sense.
I called this wallpaper "The Summoning" because that's what it looks like Kantarou is doing - summoning something with his scroll.
I wonder if this is the first Tactics anime wall out there? :3
And sorry the image is on the left hand; I don't like flipping images around and it was easier to redraw the right side than the left. For all your mac users, this one's for you :)

  8. bucket-shot Oct 22, 2004

    Whoa~ nice wall. :D I really like the texturedness, like everyone else is saying. XD the varying greens are nice to the eye. :) Heheh... until Rex mentioned it, I didn't notice they wre 'floating'.. but the taller one's chin looks a little strange to me. Um, how to say? Kind of like Disney's Hercules, with that little sticking-out part on the end. ^_^'

    Nice work on the character picture and the dark green bg looks great as well.
    This is the first wallpaper which makes me think that moving the desktop icons into the lower right corner might actually be worth doing. :)
