Artist Comment

I've been working on this image for a while. The image is off of the Japanese DVD2 cover, which features an adorable image of young Kino. (I want the rerelease of Japanese DVD 2 too, it has a new picture of young Kino that's absolutely cute.) After a quick vector it took a while to create the background. I wanted to recreate the scene from episode 4, with Kino admist the red flowers, and so I traced flowers and petals off of various screencaps to get that effect. The sky's clouds are recycled from my Kino "True Blue Skies" image and the birds are recycled from my FMA "On Wings of Hope" image. The birds are there to symbolize Kino's philosophy: If a person watches a bird flying in the sky... surely they will get the urge to travel.
The title comes from the prologue/epilogue to novel 3, a story which also serves to bracket anime episode 4. The story is called "Within a Sea of Red: Blooming Prairie".

    ahh~ young Kino is so cute :3 nice recycling, and I love the reds, so purdie colors. the flying petals are great, perfect, but theres something wrong with the ones on the ground especially the ones onthe foreground, the middle of the flowers stand out a bit too much...meh...still very nice, like I said the colors are the major pluss here :D

  16. bucket-shot Jan 24, 2005

    Awesome wall, as usual. :) Your colours and vectors rock. And she has an outline this time! XD Hehe~

    Quote by candy-chanthe flying petals are great, perfect, but theres something wrong with the ones on the ground especially the ones onthe foreground

    I'll agree here-- I think the flowers'/petals' outlines should get thicker, too, the further forward they are. Just to provide extra depth. ;) Anyways! By the track record so far, it seems like you'll never get sick of walling Kino, and we'll ever tire seeing what you've made. Keep it coming!

  19. kitat Jan 24, 2005

    I like this sky. It is simple and good. The flow of a petal is nice. and great many red flower!! She is surrounded by the flower and looks fortunate. I thought until now that, as for her, Kino was another person. :) Even so, it is nice work !!

  23. MadWiz Jan 24, 2005

    oooh this wallie is really a lot of work and really very beautiful!!
    shes really cute in this 1 =p
    the petals in the air are awesome~
    but like some others say.. those on the ground looks weird.. maybe because all the petals looks joined and seem to have different colour from those in the air
    other than that its really terrific~ ^^
