Art The Vision of Escaflowne wallpaper


Recommended Posts

After a month of fermentation in my hard drive, I think it's time for this wallpaper to be evaluated:

[CENTER][URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v487/meoi/esca.jpg][b]Fontina Blu Cent[/b][/URL][/CENTER]

I lifted the raw scan from [URL=http://www.lizzard.net/Escaflowne/]Tsubasa no Kami[/URL] and vectorized (-ized?) it. The sky image is a screen capture from Neon Genesis Evangelion, I think, and the brush set I used I found in [URL=www.rebel-heart.net/brushes]Miss M's site[/URL]. The energist necklace I rendered from scratch (God, I love it to pieces!).

Okay, here's the deal: I'm going to submit this to a gallery known for its *extremely* rabid evaluators so I'm showing it to you guys first. A sort of screening test, yeah? Your CC's are most welcome.

BTW, do you guys know where I can get a good feather brush set?[/SIZE][/COLOR]

That is a real nice Escaflowne wallpaper, I like how the letter draws your attention to it immediately. The background is also a plus. The whole thing goes together perfectly in my opinion. I really don't see anything wrong with it.

[SIZE=1]Gasp! I'm wounded you'd post here as a screening process! lol

Anyway, it looks really good, and you've got an awesome eye for subtlety.

First, I love the wood background. Very fitting, and high quality. Secondly, the 'piece of glass' seems to actually be a window, but I'm not sure. Because of the fact I can see the wood on the other side, it leads me to believe that this is a piece of glass. But due to the cloudy effect, and the matching quote, I think it's a window to something else. Very interesting. But ... I don't like the frame very much. Don't get me wrong -- it looks VERY seckz, but I don't know why it's kind of like ... light being projected around the window. Thinking about it now, it makes the piece of glass look like a picture. Interesting.

Next, I love the cleanliness of the girl, but I must say, that she doesn't fit too well into the wallpaper. She's very awkwardly placed, and makes this feel slightly off balance. My eyes are glued to her, and it's hard to tear them away to look at the rest of the wallpaper. I don't like that.

Finally, is the typograhy and the gem. The typography is SHEER GENIUS. If you made that, it's absolutely beautiful. The blending of it into the floor, the filling of certain areas, and most importantly, the flow it gives to the blanket held by the girl makes it seem almost like the text is made up of the ribbon itself. *worships your skill* The gem is also beautiful. I'm guessing you extracted it, which would be great, but if you made this yourself, my God -- skill ... unfathomable. The way the lace snakes about so realistically is genius of you.

I don't like the arrangement of the elements, but I can definetly see the arduous work of this wallpaper. You get my respect. This is great.[/SIZE]
