Wolf's Rain Wallpaper: Howl to the Moon

BONES, Wolf's Rain Wallpaper
BONES Studio Wolf's Rain Series

1600x1200 Wallpaper

Artist Comment

EDIT: Following people advice on the first version I have made some changes.
-The glow round the moon has been altered and toned down a bit.
-The outline of the wolf has been slightled cleaned (the best it is going to get i think).
-Altered the cloud layers so that they appear more infront of the moon instead of behind it.

Better or worse?

P.S. there seems to be some problem with updateing the thumbnail image so please view the full version.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
My first attempt at a wall that I feel is worth uploading. I started working on this over a year ago when I first started playing with Photoshop elements v1 (and still this is all I have) and have come back and made a few more changes at various times as my skill has improved. I know this probably still needs a lot of work but my artistic talent is basically nil and I am out of ideas. I greatly value any feed back.

Acknowledgments:
Wolf outline traced from another image but it was so long ago that I did it I can't remember where. I could have extracted it from a screen cap, but cleanup and tracing would have taken ages. But thanks, who ever it was!

    the shape of the wolf is cool. also the action. the background is great, suits to the wolf. the light of the moon is also done artistically. good work. thx for sharing

    Howling wolf on a stone cliff silohuette aganst a glowing full moon background, classic. Pretty good wall paper.

    The only thing I would say is that the mood is glowing a bit much. If it were a bit more subtle, maybe with the clouds around it, it would look perfect. As for the rest, excellent.

    What a wonderful wallie!! The effects on the moon are great. Good job!

  5. Kiako Jan 27, 2005

    keep up th good work

    great work, i really like the moon behind the wolf, looks cool. the moon is really good quality also

    a good wallpaper but you could improve the siluette a litte more...like it should not be 100% black on the edges you should see a little coloured fur

    I really like this wallpaper alot. Looks natural, with that background as well. I have not yet seen Wolfs rain.

    i agree with that... hum.. on second thought maybe it's not so much that's it's too bright, it's just that the rays are too regular, but fading it with a cloud would have been a good idea, especially since the surrounding of the moon is cloudy... that or you make a clear starry sky (but it wouldn't fit with the mood of the wall i guess)... anyways the wolf looks cool, that's for sure ^^ so, keep up the great work!!

    EDIT... i also agree that the wolf shouldn't be all black... with a moon so bright, we should see a little of the wolf's fur...

    Great wallpaper!!!A very beautiful moon yet it doesn´t take the attention from the wolf's shadow... very well thought...
    there is something strange howerver... the moon seems to be infront of the clouds... but still like very much

    The only thing I could say that you coluld improve on would have been to maintain a little of the image you traced around the edges, since there is generally a bit of cast light that spreads over. Another thing you could have done was traced the sillouette at a higher resolution, the edges are a bit fuzzy at my res.

    But all in all a very well done piece of art.

    it's a wondeful wallie! especially for a first attempt! i love the classic idea.....it's very well done..Cept i think there is somethign iwth the moond..Maybe it is that it glows tooo much like people said..and it should be turned down a bit...But i also think that like.... When you look at something with rays of light...Not every ray of light comes out to the same point....or same length...You know what i mean? i think some things maybe be turned down a bit and made more natural looking....other then that! it's kick butt!

    I like wolf's rain and I love kiba-kun!!! this pic is very cool, I like it^^

  15. shirahana Jan 29, 2005

    Hm... a very classic idea. The light burst around the moon is a bit too defined ^^; Also, the black silhouette is a bit too blurred. Nice concept though ^^;

    Absolutely stunning wallpaper, it was one of the first walls i downloaded when I joined this site and it stayed on my deskstop for a whole week. Unfortunately I can't give you editing feedback - I have only just found the zoom shortcuts and how to extract images with the lasso tool- Congrates you have actually got me interested in watching Wolf's Rain.

    This is a very awesome wall...its very breath taking. The moonlight gives off a wonderful glow throughout the wall. I love how the wolf is shadowed, its simple, but it is the coolest effect, it kind of sets the atmosphere for the whole wall! :D You did an excellent job and can't wait to see more! :D
