First wall of the year, first time trying new techniques! Welcome the abstractico-scenery background! So first off, it's a very spoiler wall and very for the girls out there. XD AHAHA praise me all Ed!fangirls now. I'm so sorry for people who haven't seen the serie yet but I just had to wall that scene (ep. 51).

Thank you to the guy who posted the scans from the Newtype here in MT. I can't remember his name and it seems he deleted them (wtf?!). Since it was a double page and Ed was nicely cut in two + bottom all covered by text, I decided to vector it. The pain. The vector work (Illustrator) took me a whole week bit by bit, I hadn't much time.

Props to Sammo and FMA ep. 51 for the light effects inspiration and http://rpgbn.net/main2.php?id=webmasters/Tutorials/wc.htm for the abstract background tutorial. *hides* Besides the massive light FX, I drew the Gate behind Ed (anime version). Creepy. Full rez = max details.

I'm very satisfied of the outcome because I really had no idea of how it would turned out while I was vectoring Ed: I was thinking "mm... yeah... naked!ed... what can i do as a background to not screw him up...". Since it's my second time trying something abstract, I think it's pretty good. :)

    -Bows in admiration- This is such an amazing wallpaper. Kudos for vectoring it all, it looks wonderful and like you said, it must have been such a pain in the butt to do...The backround reminds me of the infamous gate and the light effects are quite smilliar to the ones used in the actual episode.

    I'm not a Edward fangirl, but for sure I will use this wallpaper someday soon.

  20. Yumi-Chan Jan 11, 2005
