Artist Comment

Some of you might’ve seen this already; after all, this so called wallpaper you see here was posted in AP back when that site was still functioning and accessible. So, for those very few that liked the wallpaper back then, but thought they were never going to see it again after that site went down, this is your lucky day. For those of you that are seeing this for the first time, well...... enjoy.

I wasn’t sure if people still even care about Nichijou anymore, but then I saw someone post two wallpapers of the same series in less than a week or so. Yes, the only reason I’m posting this right now it’s because of that. After seeing those wallpapers, good old memories of my own wallpaper came to surface, so I felt like posting mine as well, simple as that.

Yes, it’s an old wallpaper (2011), and perhaps outdated for today’s quality standards, but I honestly love it (it is one of those wallpapers that I keep using a lot). Sure, it isn’t the most “amazing-striking” thing ever created (nor I intended it to be), but you know, I still love it. I love the feeling of joy I get every time I see it on my desktop. But hey! that’s just me. I have a particular taste in wallpapers from what most people like, therefore I usually end up making my own wallpapers (whenever I can).

By the way, this is not a Christmas wallpaper (it’s a simple “start of winter” wallpaper). It might look like one because of the snowman, but it is not. If you wanna think it is and want to use it as one, be my guess.... but then again December is almost over so....

Sure, I have newer wallpapers than this I could’ve posted instead, but then again...... I felt that would’ve been a waste of time. Honestly, I don’t really feel that anime wallpapers are appreciated as they used to be anymore (here or anywhere else). For what I’ve seen, people don’t seem to really comment anymore (not even sure if a lot of people still visit sites like this either), which is kinda sad, since one of the main reasons I started posting this stuff was because of the comments. Oh well, I can’t do anything about that. It is what it is, right?. When the care is gone, so it is the love.

If I do decide to keep sharing more of my stuff (be it old AP stuff or brand new), be sure I’ll post it here from now on.

Below is a copy/paste description of this wallpaper. It’s exactly as I wrote it back when I posted it in AP in 2011.... I hope it is good enough, if not, well so be it (this description is getting out of control, for real)...

P.S: (general info)

- The main image used was taken from a screenshot of the show. The background was made by me from scratch. You can see all that under the progress chart below (in the copy/paste description).
- Wallpaper aspect ratios available: 16:9, 16:10 (not planning on posting this one though)
- Wallpaper formats available: JPG, PNG. I believe this site works with JPGs only.
- Wallpaper resolutions available (16:9): 1920x1080 (FHD), 2560x1440 (QHD), 3200x1800 (WQXGA+), and 3840x2160 (UHD, 4k). I’m only sharing 1920x1080 since I don’t see the point for sharing the other ones as most people don’t have monitors with those resolutions.

KakashiM,
Stay safe and have a a happy new year 2014....

----------------DESCRIPTION (written in 2011)

and the weather man said it was gonna rain today, figures

Yea…… I find walling casual, cheerful and fun looking images to be really fun. But that’s just me.

I’ve wanted to wall this series since the very moment I started watching it (loving its humor and high production values). I was also hoping more people would too (especially after 20’s episodes), but I guess I was wrong. Like they say, to each their own…

It wasn’t after I watched the second opening (Hyadain no Joujou Yuujou***) that I found my “walling shot”. I really love this shot of Hakase (she is the small-fun-looking girl holding the umbrella; you can call her Professor if you want). The only thing that would’ve made this shot perfect would’ve been if Sakamoto (the red scarf-talking-cat) or Nano (the robot school-girl) were in it.

***Hyadain no Joujou Yuujou by Hyadain (Nichijou OP2)

Stuff (or something you might care to read):

- Based on an original concept
- Perfect for winter and/or autumn. Not really suitable for summer (but that’s all up to you). Coming up with background drafts for this was definitely fun. For matter fact, it was the best part of all this
- Characters were vectored from a screenshot using AI. Colored outlines instead of black. Added a couple of more shades and lines to the character (nothing big, but still worth mentioning)
- Added textures to both, background and character, and also did a bunch of other adjustments (yes, the usual)
- What does the wooden sign says? Can’t you read it? It says Follow me and Can’t turn around. Since you can’t turn around, I guess you gotta follow her to wherever she goes (at least those baby chicks agree)
- A snowman? Yes, because snowmen are awesome. You can’t have snow without having a snowman. You just can’t. It’s just how it is
- Hakase snow footprints
- And more (etc etc etc etc etc etc)… that I will be omitting for the sake of making this so called description “shorter”

By the way, there is alternative version available (different approach). I made it for a friend and decided to post it along with the original as a freebie (yes, a freebie, meaning that I wasn’t really planning on posting it, but I did in the end). It’s just different. I won’t go into details about the different things and changes I did for this version.

Anyhow, if you have tons of icons in your desktop, you might appreciate this alternative version a tad more. Me? I still preferred the original (really, my desktop is icon-free, so either way I’m fine).

Silly chart (because “walling progress charts” were meant to be fun). Same as the last one, this chart was quickly put together and does not include a shot of the final version.

Well, I hope some of you appreciate this wall for what it is, and the fact Hakase is in it and not Sakamoto (or Nano or Mio or Yuko or Mai). Comments are welcome. Enjoy and be active.

Nichijou – is – pure – awesome - ness (personal opinion)

    I'm not seeing a signature, unless it's hidden somewhere, things tend to get deleted without a sig, very detailed artist comment section that's for sure. really like the cuteness of it all, the interesting details to the little music notes over each character is rather cute. over all nicely done.

    aw this is so cute to have as a desktop with this cold weather xD
    I like this version more than the other one, seeing all the landscape is better. The sky could have some clouds to make it look less plain, but that's just a suggestion, everything looks so cute *o*.
