Artist Comment

I'm taking a short break from the Bishounen Invasion (the next wall in the set I'm working on is Spiral) - although one could argue that Spike qualifies as Bishounen. Basically, I like this image (I scanned it off of a promotional flyer for Knocking on Heaven's door that I bought for a few bucks) because of the positioning of the characters in a classic "face off" pose. Although the original image had typical cel-shading detailing, I wanted to do something different (don't I always?) and go for a shillouette with the light playing off of their shapes from the tower behind them. By the way, I hate vectoring buildings, even wireframe things like the tower. Urgh. Not doing that again anytime soon -_- The image went through several styles as I toyed with gradients in the background trying to get a final composition that worked. I added some textures and came into this sort of framed image with the tower aglow and all.
I've been doing a fair number of orange wallpapers lately. It's a nice change from my usual blue-greens.
All in all, about 5 hours work, 50megs.

    Beautiful work, Tama. I usually don't groove on abstract, but this is so smooth and cohesive, adding detail without adding noise. Automatic fave!

    that image is really badass, almost looks straight out of a john woo flick (like you mentioned with faceoff). also a damn nice job on making the illumination of the chars and especially translating that into vectors. also the patterns you used on this are also splendid. just about every detail of this wall is worth taking note of. seriously, a perfect wall!

    Great work, thank you.
    I really loved those scenes, and I was looking for something to resemble them.
