Artist Comment

This is composed of a few scans I found on MT. Yeah, it's Gojyo and Sanzo. They go together like oil and water in the series, but they're my two favorite characters.

It took me a few hours to crop, clean up, arrange, strategically brush in color and add noise. Overall, this was probably 4 hour wallpaper, much longer than I thought it would take. But I'm feeling like a perfectionist today.

Because Gojyo is part water nymph, I tried to make it look like he was laying in water, instead of in sheets like in the original scan. I'm not sure how well I succeeded. I was trying to be abstract and hint at the movement of water, rather than just drawing water.

My only problems: I'm not sure how well the gears fit into the wallpaper, but I had so much trouble extracting them and re-cging the images that I decided just to leave them as is. Sanzo doesn't quite line up with Gojyo. The lines don't match. I didn't realize this until after I had spent 1.5 hours airbrushing on Sanzo and didn't want to scrap it all and redo it. Nothing would have lined up if I resized the image and I would have to start all over. I tried to CG more in on his shirt, and it just didn't look right. So, the boys aren't perfectly lined up. Please tell me what you think.

    Oooooo..... ^_^' *cough cough*

    Nice wallpaper.
    The water effect worked great and the fact that thier not perfectly lined up dosen't hinder the wallpaper at all.
    Good job!

    what did u mean by 'not perfectly lined up' ?? o.O *confused*
    it looks fine to me.....
    and the gears.... well... it's an abstract layout, anyways.... and they're quite a nice addition....
    Great job, Egnirys! I hope to see more good stuff from you!

    I can sincerely understand how one would take pains in perfecting a work of this calibre. Even the most simple looking styles can take forever! But Egnirys, after all that time and effort I think you've done a wonderful job! Your air brushing is tight, clean and sharp. I like the cogs in the composition and I also appreciate the work that went into making certain you had the water effect down solid. The caustic style colours are beautiful!
    5/5 :d
    a well deserved score!

    No, I'm pretty sure Gojyo was in the water in the original pictures. There are a pair of rocks nearby O-O Such pretty pics though...

    Sovera - good to know. :) I don't remember seeing rocks, but maybe I got a cropped version of the image I used to work from. Thanks. :)

    No problem. I like to nitpick when it comes to things like this. ^^; I'd post the orginal pic, but it's to small so they won't let me.
