Artist Comment

Well first of all BIG thanks to KorganoS not only did I use his vector ( Kazuki - vectored by KorganoS ) :D But he also gave me some suggestions as I was making it. So thanks again! ^_^

I was sort of suprised that I like this series as much as I do. It's like Gundam with a funky plot. XD Anyway, I wanted to do a cloud wall since I really like this method of using stock photos (so much better then trying to make them by hand). The stock photos I used were from http://sxc.hu/ The tutorial I used is from here: http://www.solarvoyager.com/tutorials.asp

I'm pretty happy with it, seeing how it's my first "cloud" wall. I think I got a little bit carried away with the clouds, but oh well. XD The one thing I don't like is those dang birds. It looks really empty if I try to take them out though, but they look deformed. -_- Well I guess I learned I can't draw birds. Blargh. :P Oh yeah and the text under "Soukyuu No Fafner" means: We are aiming for Shangri-La. Which has nothing to do with anything, except that it's my favorite line from the opening song. XD

    Oooooo, I likey Myrrh! Very..."airy". XD Seriously though, how'd you make the clouds? And the moon is a nice touch. Overall, it's very peaceful. And we all need some peace with finals here. XD

    how'd you make such an awesome cloud ? XD
    give you a fav.

    Nice wall. Korganos made a very nice vector...XD

    Very simple yet effective sky. Tweked to perfection, not overly simple, but simple enough. Very nice, I like the birds flying as well. I like this...

  10. DarkCyradis Dec 04, 2004

    Ooh, nice! I've been looking for Soukyuu no Fafner wallpaper and I haven't seen this pic of Kazuki yet--thanks for making it!

  11. Kinkosami Dec 07, 2004

    Beautiful! I really like how you did the clouds and the birds(it like the birds, they don't look deformed)... and pretty much everything is good.

    i like how it looks like the clouds are 'exploding' outward, it gives it a exciting look. ^_^

    The only complaint I have is the image, it looks kinda pixely or something... but other than that it's great. :)

    Nice... I just started watching Faffner as well and find it.... damn frustrating and yet interesting at the same time. I like this wall and the background is just perfect for Kazuki's mood.

    Kudos :nya:

    great wall, the clouds in the background look amazing. good job! +fav ^^

  18. pyreflies Oct 07, 2005

    Ohhh, so pretty~ 8D I like the background, the clouds are so nice.

    The only thing I can say is that the edges of Kazuki are a little...what's the word...jagged? Otherwise, it's awesome!

  19. strawberrt Oct 18, 2005
