Artist Comment

So it was pretty simple concept, I started with a scan, and imagined how it would look like if rain was black, and she was invisible, just covered in rain, kinda like Kevin Bacon's Hollow Man i-bathed-in-blood scene. I first came out with rainy bg, with grain and some sihoutttes and black floor and stuff and trashed it all out after starting vector, because it all just made it look less interesting. Kept only rain.

Anyway, glad how it came out, because after finishing bg first, I was pretty sure this experiment will be a failure, but turns out vectoring was coming pretty much how I planned. Hope you'll like it too. Also, text comes from this song
Some parts of it feels so much like Mei.

    This is pretty cool, especially how you did the blood on her eye patch.
    It's weird seeing you do simple walls though lol I'm always expecting something big from you.

    So I wanted this wall to have more love, and to intimidate commenters, so Imma spam my comment from AP.

    So I gotta stay right away that I really love how you experiment with things. It's really wonderful watching you sort of bend and twist things to come up with these interesting and unique concepts. Another has some fantastic work, but really hasn't received much love in the walling section, so it's nice that Gii and now you have given it some more. The thing I really like about this wallpaper is you utilize the effects and scenery to create a piece that perfectly fits with the series itself. I've told you this before and I'll say it again, Mei is haunting in this scene. By going for a more outline approach and minimalistic, you give a great sense of depth and emotion to the character. She's absolutely terrifying to look at, and I love it. By taking the rain and integrating it into the piece, with having the lines drip down, you create such a strong horror-style atmosphere. I'd dare say that this image you created is the perfect example of minimalistic being much better than anything detailed. It's got a level of depth and feeling to it that I just don't see in any of the scans. I seriously cannot stress enough that just by utilizing the outlining and an effect that was in the scan you based off of, you created a great level of depth.

    Second off, I gotta state that I'm glad you went minimal. I personally find that with weather based wallpapers, especially rain, it's best to stick with a more minimal approach. You don't need a bunch of crap in the background or a bunch of things going on. It's suppose to be about emotion and atmosphere, and as I've already stated numerous times you captured that remarkably. The rain itself helps also to outline Mei's character, which was well done in my book. It's also light enough to where it doesn't take over the wallpaper, but it still has a deal of presence on the piece too. I especially like the fact that you chose to centralize it instead of putting it throughout the entire piece. Another thing, yet again that I'm gushing over, is the choice of text. I really like that you slimmed down the lyrics and changed up the font. I look at it and I get this impression that she's standing out in the rain, tracing letters on a piece of glass or someone's window, and then touches her eye before she finishes what she was writing. It just completely the eerie vibe of the piece and the fact that it's a handwritten style typeface, it helps make it much more believable that she actually wrote it herself.

    So I've gone on and on about this piece, but would there be any changes? Well, I love how she's got this ink look to her, and like the ink itself is runny. Some of it in her centralized area seems to be a bit too dark/thick, but yet at the same time I'm not exactly sure if something like that should be changed, since it fits the texture and base of ink. Otherwise.. to be blunt I wouldn't change a thing. It creates so much with it's minimalistic feel, yet it's got that level of depth that comes with a more experienced waller. By far my new favorite from you and the first anime desktop I've used in years. I absolutely adore this piece and I hope it'll inspire others to create similar pieces.
