Artist Comment

I really like the perspective of this image. Something about a camera almost overhead is a nice change from your typical straight-on view, and the concept of a clear lake reflecting the clouds and birds was powerful. Even though I've never seen the series, I knew I wanted to wall this image. The entire image was recreated; the characters, birds and feathers were traced, and the background clouds are the result of several cloud stocks from Stock Exchange. The neat thing about the trace is the ability to separate the reflection from the characters, so you can really see the water overlapping. I also recolored the image to be brighter and more vibrant.

    Oh wow, that's beautiful. ^_^ I can't believe you haven't watched FMA! I know you'd love it, we seem to have similar taste in anime (glancing at your top walls on the side). I love the concept, and I agree, the perspective is wonderful. *adds to desktop* ^_^

    Beautiful! I really like the concept of this wall and how you compensated for the angle by placing them in shallow water/puddle and reflecting the sky. Beautiful work. :) Definitely +Fav.

    Wow, I've been looking something perfect for my desktop, and now your wall has given my desktop a new look. Lovely Wall and your vectorwork is amazing.

  7. UndyingShadow Dec 07, 2004

    holy shit, this IS the best wall I have seen in a long time as well. everything is perfect, the colors, the reflection, the feathers, the scan. Man Tama, you certainly outdid yourself this time. Amazing wall.

    Lots of good walls this week. I keep changing mine as I see more. And now this ones on my desktop.

    This one is truly awesome, one of your best. I'm glad you went with a trave instead of a vector, I don't think it would have looked as great without the lines.

    Plus, the birds and wrings are perfect.

    Very cool Tama. I'm loving the perspective of this image and the expression that they're showing ;_;. I love the concept of this wallpaper and how you put everything together too. A little rain would beef it up but it's not really necessary. This is definitely your best wall.

  13. Sir-Boingal0t Dec 07, 2004

    they show FMA in cartoon network (Adultswim) >XD

    anyway.....nice j0b on re-cging everything @_@...its nice n sm00th
    teh birds r pretty c00l too xd

    i kinda like simple walls .....now n then
    though I think u could have done more to make them appear as if they really were standing on water.

    u know.....like a couple more ripples........or something....
    and maybe a wider reflection of the sky. instead of just 2 huge seperated clouds
    and maybe a reflection of a planet.....a moon......watever @_@.....

    well enough of my yapping......really nice wall eitherway >=D

    now go catch FMA in adultswim >_<!

  14. Lemur Dec 07, 2004

    Great work, as always.
    Making awesome wall without kawaii girl on it is really a masterpiece!
    To my fav.

  15. gatts Dec 07, 2004

    nice wallpaper. the reflection of the clouds on the water really does make them look like they're flying. so flawless is your work, that their reflection on the water was not omitted as well. very very detailed and well-done!

  16. dans Dec 07, 2004

    wowzaaa.... awesome wall.
    i love the bird, reflection.... i like all of them.
    keep up the awesome work. XD
    a fav from me.

  17. bucket-shot Dec 07, 2004

    Whoa... mad. :D Definitely one of, if not the most unique FMA wall I've seen yet. You rock! Powerful, like you said. And good call going with lines for this trace. XD Though my favourite part would have to be that reflection... Sweet work. :)

  18. nat Dec 07, 2004

    -_- This is like my 5th time trying to post a reply...

    But it's worth it, just to say beautiful job recreating this image! I hope you do watch FMA and get to like it so that you'll make more of these lovely walls ;D

    Nice perspective, I love it.
    The wallie looks lovely with the reflections, doves and feathers.
    Definitely one of the (few) best I've seen around anywhere.
    Great job as always. Nobody can beat tama-chan on re-cg work. ^o^

  24. Sandy Dec 07, 2004

    That is really awesome. I was looking for this scan in better quality but Tama made a wonderful vector wall out of it. XD What could you ask for more? I just find Edo's face a bit funny but I think it's the original picture. @_@ Anyway, it's a fav for me. :D
