Kira and Lacus had a GSeed one, a GSD one, and then there's also one in Final Plus. Shinn had one with Stella and another one with Luna :) but what about Athrun?! AsuCaga doesn't have one! AsuCaga <3<3<3 So I made one especially just for AsuCaga (I <3 Athrun!hehe) Hope my fellow AsuCaga fans will love this too ;)
I've had this idea for so long, and it's just now that I finally decided to do it. I had that hesitation before since I'm not quite sure with my skill of fitting a head with other bodies.
haha I was suppose to make something for the Chinese Lunar New Year BUT I ended up too engrossed with making this one! :P anyways...
I've also been wanting to make a wallie with a sunset theme (since what I always do are ones with sparkly stars ^_^'). It's my first time with it...but I hope I did well with the sunset background :)

Duration: 5 days
Layers: 110++
Musical inspiration: Because You Live by Jesse McCartney <3 I had a bit of hard time deciding on which line in the song should I use for the title haha :)

- head vectored from: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/217782 Kyaaaa <3 that cute smile and those green eyes *starts singing: Get me with those green eyes, baby...!*
- body (references): http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c342/gsd2/seed330.jpg (credits to the site Halcyon for the screenshot ^^)
and this hot pic of Athrun here
Looking for the 'perfect fit' shirtless body for Athrun's head was really hard...and awkward too ROFL! :P I feel like a pervy girl rumaging around MT then Google Images for spics of hirtless anime guy pics haha! Oh, and another funny thing is that my mom and dad kept on passing by me while I was doing that so I have to be alert to minimize the window or switch to another tab...cuz they might have misunderstood :))
- silhouette vectored from: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/267691

- head vectored from: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/217782
- body vectored from: http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff259/FloraNamine/Opening_006.jpg and then, I had a little help from this pic for the arm.
- silhouette vectored from: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/216426 Didn't use use the Cagalli with Athrun on that scan for the silhouette because I want to Cagalli in a dress in order to have that 'the knight & his princess' feel. I did wee wee bit of tweaking on the skirt and on her hand although I doubt it's noticeable :P

Idea/reference for the sunset background: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/457200

Please enjoy! ;) and full view too!
DO NOT rip or post elsewhere (i.e. Zerochan)!

EDIT: I put up an alternate version (without the silhouette) of this vector-wallie :)

    only five days for such a beautiful piece, I think this one is rather nice. I like the silhouette down there at the bottom of the piece, my attention went there first and I have to admit it's a rather nice "perfection" to the piece. I always like how you use the bright colors in your work, always makes the piece seem that much more cheerful

    You did a great job stitching together scans :) And haha I know what you mean by feeling awkward looking for shirtless scans XD

    And yeah it's weird that we never see Cagalli naked (yet we see every other girl naked XD)

  8. rizacaga Mar 12, 2012

    ah, actually there is half naked cagalli in the OP, and also bathing scenes in both seed and destiny,,fully naked. but yeah I know what you mean luna-chan xD.
    good job with the vector

    That's right! Hirai Hisashi-san NEVER fair for AsuCaga couple!
    It's like....AsuCaga are just partner that coincidentally in love, but no further "road" for them. He drew Kira-Lacus, Shinn-Luna/Shinn-Stellar so romantically, but when it comes to AsuCaga, it's like partnership, not lovers kind of art >_<
    Athrun's art for "romantic" style drawn with Meer or Meyrin!
    AsuCaga are NOT partner, or enemies, or EX-lovers!
    we can see their arts for OP or ED scenes.
    Either "1st counterpart" in Invoke, "I want to know you more, Athrun" in Believe, "We're apart now yet still think of you" in PRIDE & Life Goes On, "I'm longing for you, Athrun" in Wings of Words & I Wanna Go To A Place, the others are Athrun SHARED with other girls.
    Just ONE art of romantic AsuCaga on the beach, with sunset, almost embraced.
    That's why I made mega poster of the scan in my room ^^
    WHY do Cagalli has to fight for her very own place?
    I also didn't know why Athrun never straightforwarded about WHO is his lover O_O
    Those points really upset me!

    Anyway, THANK YOU for the wallie!
    Just a suggestion, why didn't you use the sillhouette from beach?
    It's beautiful and the MOST romantic scan of AsuCaga.
