Artist Comment

From Gankutsuou/The Count of Monte Cristo. I like the strange stylings of this anime, and the patterns, while initially annoying, are actually pretty fun to look at after you get used to them. I decided to make a wall and found an image out of Animage 9/04.
I wanted to reproduce the image as closely as possible, as if this were official artwork. This is more intensive than per my norm as I did the outlines AND redrew the patterns. Some are actually fully redrawn; some are from my website and some are filter-and-brush-work in order to mimic the original.
For the background, I originally was going to make a watch like the pocketwatch the Count drops and Albert finds in episode 1. Somehow, as I was messing around in Illustrator, I got a sun-and-moon clock design instead. I realized it was fitting; the Count is in golds and represents the sun while Albert is in blues and represents the moon. A few textures courtesy of my previous works added an aged feeling to the background. Here is a clean image of the clock; a lot of the details are hidden in this image.

  13. nat Nov 12, 2004

    Just beautiful! You've really outdone yourself this time, it completely looks official---the patterns, lines---everything. Not to mention the stunning background design with thinner lines that make it the background as opposed to vying with the foreground. Great stuff!

  14. DarkParagon Nov 12, 2004

    I love this. Inventive and unique... accurately depicts what I've seen of the anime. :) Kudos and +fav.

    Very nice wallpaper with an interesting concept.. ^^
    Cool textures and colours. ^^

  24. MyrrhLynn Nov 13, 2004

    Wow this is fantastic! I would have thought for sure it was official art. :D I've been watching the show (it's one of my favorites this season) and I agree the patterns are wierd at first (took me a whole episode to get over the fact that the patterns move when the characters do. XD) but after you get past that it's pretty cool. I think you captured the feeling of the show perfectly. Excellent work!
