Ok, well I uploaded this to AP and Otaku, so here goes MT :).

It's been a long while.

Rurouni Kenshin was my first anime (excluding Sailor Moon, which in my book didn't count since I watched it in Chinese and didn't understand a word of it). And Kenshin was my first love <3.

As I said in a message to Gid just before posting this...
"pretty bishie
holding a very big knife
he has redeye
like me
with sprinkles on top
and zombies in the bg."

The consensus was that "Zombies are always a nice touch."

Extra thanks to Mike for encouragement, and Nysha for the color-correction/contrast-rebalance help at...er...6am in the morning.

I think I need to sleep now.

    Giving this wallpaper some more love over here. Second verse, same as the first!

    I have to admit, when I heard you were walling again, I was rather excited and curious to see what exactly you would be working on. It seems like for each piece you do something different each time, but for this one it was a bit different since I don't think I've seen you this excited since I've known you about walling something and the end result shows it greatly.

    The biggest wow factor in the wallpaper is Kenshin, and in a wallpaper to where my eyes are drawn to each little areas that says a lot on just how much love he was given. You can tell that Kenshin holds a special place in your heart, simply by the level of craftsmanship demonstrated. I don't think I've ever seen him so full of life, so vividly full of color and pop. He's a good looking guy, with a dark and mysterious past and it's conveyed perfectly just through color alone.

    Oh gosh, where do I start? So, I have to admit I really love what you went for. When you told me about putting a bunch of bad dudes withe evil intentions around him, I was thinking like a large number of guys, but this? This is perfect! It's just enough to give the ill-intention vibe, yet not enough to where it distracts you from your bishie or from the scenery. I also love the whole mist concept as well and how you chose to color the cherry blossoms. However, my biggest treat lies within the scenery itself. That background is absolutely gorgeous. Sticking to the color choices you did, it completely fits the mood of the background and the buildings are gorgeous as well.

    I'm not going to lie, I could easily of rambled on more about this wallpaper, but when it comes down to it there is just one simple fact. This is the strongest Kenshin wallpaper I have ever seen. A wallpaper that perfectly captures that dark aspect of his past all the while maintaining his philosophical aspects from the television show. In order words, a wallpaper that perfectly blends the Trust and Betrayal OVA with the TV show, all the while being absurdly creative and memorizing. It's great to see you back and in top form, Jay.

    This is very good. It's been a while since I saw a great Kenshin walls!

  9. Nysha Aug 28, 2011

    Whoosh you finally upload this here! Since you posted it on AP your wall made me rewatch Trust and Betrayal and reread the manga again. D: Uuuuuu look what you did! Anyway glad I could help you out at 6 am in the morning. XD The final result is so gooood!

    Woot, nice to finally see it here, too! :D

  11. MissDaphne Aug 28, 2011

    Wow, instant fave. This wallpaper is amazing. I love the background but he makes the wallpaper, the lighting and color.... Just amazing. He's beautiful. Great job!

  12. Justaway Aug 28, 2011

    Thanks, nice wallpaper. BTW it's too small, 1440x900.
    Now time for 1920x1080 or bigger walls...

    The first thing that attracted me towards it was his hair. The hair on his forehead and the pony tail is very done. Yeah, the zombies do add up as a great touch up to this pic. The picture almost describes the anime. I love the shiny sword and the grip of his hand over it makes it look so real. The only thing is that there are many people, I guess, who do not understand japanese and I don't even understand the title so I think you should always describe or at least write the meaning of the title and the written matter in the picture. Anyway GREAT WORK! love it and keep it up! I can't wait to see new works from you. Thanks for your hard work and for sharing ^^

  14. Kritty Aug 28, 2011

    Haha we share a first love <33
    The atmosphere is just. I don't have the words.
    I love it. I'm using it. Nuff said.

    Glad to see it up here - amazing vector and detail work

  20. angelxxuan Banned Member Aug 28, 2011

    thanks for gracing mt with this, such a beautiful piece, I can see why it was granted the honor of elite status. I like the zombies in the background they give the final touch. I have to admit, I haven't seen a kenshin wall in such a long time and to be granted such a nice piece I have to say it was well worth the wait. don't take so many pauses next time, I'm always eager to see more artwork, especially of something such detail as this, it's the sword that keeps summoning me to this piece :)

  21. Tavia-chan Aug 28, 2011

    Glad to see it here on MT. I said all that needed to be said on AP about this beautifully done wallpaper! Very lovely and detailed vector - the depth is magnificent as well.

  22. kikuchivn Aug 29, 2011

  23. windyroller Aug 30, 2011
