Appleseed - Specialists

I was planing to make wallpaper to Appleseed long ago, so finally I have made one.

Base of this wallpaper is Deunan Knute & Briareos Hecatonchires. Image of them is from the the artbook Intron Depot 1. I have decide for this image because I love the look in Deunen's eyes, the eyes are just wonderful.
The Mobile Fortresses is also from one of the images in Intron Depot 1.
Inspiration to this wallpaper I have taken from other illustration by 士郎正宗 (Shirow Masamune).
I wanted to make this wallpaper little close to original art by 士郎正宗, but it was very hard. 士郎正宗 is just the best illustrator and his illustrations are very detailed and complex. I can not compare with him in any way.
I really hope you will like this wallpaper to the great manga Appleseed.

Name: Specialists
Series: Appleseed
Resolution: 1920x1200
Wallpaper made from:
- 99 layers
- 2 renders
- 57 masks

This is wallpaper with the most layers, masks and side works I have done so far.
