Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!
My New wallpaper is with Christmas thematic. This is my third wallpaper for Christmas*.
This time with original art by one of my most favorite illustrator, 白亜右月 (Ugetsu Hakua).

I wanted this wallpaper with simple look, but at the same time not too boring. I tried to make a good contrast between the Santa Girl an the background, so I decided for green background. On the sides I have make a freeze effect (I hope it looks like freeze :P).
I hope you will like it. This is probably my last wallpaper for the year 2013 (but I started to work on new one), so in the case I don't post nothing new I wish you Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Monster Hunter

My new wallpaper is to a game I play this days, to Monster Hunter. To be more concrete I play Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD.
I have bought this game on my trip in Japan. I have bought three copies, one for me and the two for my friends. We are probably only people in Slovakia that have this game :-P
OK, now more about the wallpaper. Some time ago I have come across Monster Hunter's female hunter images made by the artist Kizuki Aruchu (Official Page | Twitter | Pixiv), and I was thinking "Wow, the character design is totally great". Yes I know, the characters are originally from a adult doujin manga 'Monhan no Erohon' by the circle Udon-ya, but Arachu's art is really amaizing.

So in this wallpaper I wanted to have characters by Kizuki Aruchu and monsters from the game, Nargacuga, Tigrex and some other... + top & bottom border and Monster Hunter logo in the center. I wanted to add something more from the game, so I decided to add the yellow bubble (it is mark that NPC want to talk to you. The girl with the bubble gives you the guild quests in the game).
All the monster are from Monster Hunter Wikia

H.O.T.D x IkkiTousen - Götterdämmerung

This wallpaper is crossover of H.O.T.D x IkkiTousen: Dragon Destiny
I have get idea for this wallpaper because of this topic in IkkiTousen Fan Club on MAL and after I have tagging images of Saeko. She and Kan'u have the same tags: purple hair, long hair, blue eyes. I don't want to take discussion which of them is hotter, stronger... I just was thinking it will looks cool to have them on one image.
Mostly I'm bad to think out names for my wallpapers, but by this one it was easy :-)

Mahou Shoujo Ai - You're Going Down

My new wallpaper is to the adult visual novel and H-anime 魔法少女アイ (Mahou Shoujo Ai).
I don't know why but I really like Ai and I want more wallpapers with her. When I have first time saw this image (illustration by 朝木貴行 (Asaki Takayuki)), I was thinking that it looks really cool & It would looks good like wallpaper. So finally I have made wallpaper from it.
I wanted to keep up this from the orriginal image:
- the red moon
- the magic circle
- the tentacles
This wallpaper have take me some time. The rendering was pretty long, then the making of magic circle and the drawing of tentacles have also take some time.
I have also made a little censure, on the original image is to see Ai's nipple, on this wallpaper not.

I was really active in July, don't know why and don't know where I have find the free time for so many wallpaper, probably I have fail to do something other :-)

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

I was really active last days.
New wallpaper for PS3 XcrossMediaBar, but also for PC. This time I wanted to make a cross platform wallpaper, it should not be only for PS3 but if someone like it he can use it on PC.

Riden's red eye points on the main horizontal icon in XMB, and the glow from sword points on on selected icon in vertical bar.

Finally I have finished wallpaper to the anime series 百花繚乱 SAMURAI GIRLS (Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls). I have started it some time ago, but could not finish it, out of inspiration. The inspiration have come... I started to watch the second season, Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride.
I really like the character design of this series and the whole style it is illustrated, it looks wonderful. The original character design is made by Niθ (Nishii), and for the anime made by Rin-Sin. I think is is great combination.
This wallpaper feature the characters Juubei, Yukimura, Matabei & Sen, illustrated by Niθ.
I have try to make this wallpaper in the style of the series, with the ink spots, bold outlines...

This is my second wallpaper to this manga, the first one I have made some time ago can be founded here.
This new feature the two main characters Susano & Seska, plus on the background is Princess Kushinata.
I think I will make more wallpapers to this manga in the future, because I love this manga and I think it should have more attention.

Ghost in the Shell: SAC - The Laughing Man Incident

New Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex wallpaper.
I was lately thinking that I have made too many 一騎当千 (IkkiTousen) wallpapers and that I need to start making more wallpapers for other series. So I started with my most favorite series, 攻殻機動隊 STAND ALONE COMPLEX (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex).
The idea for this one was pretty simple, Motoko front, Togusa & Batou beside Motoko, Laughing Man behind her and on top. To think out exactly how the background should look have take me some time.
All the work on the wallpaper was not so hard like thinking out the name. After hard thinking I have came up with the name "The Laughing Man Incident".

IkkiTousen - Shining Dragon

New wallpaper. Better new wallpapers, it is a set of five wallpapers to 一騎当千: Shining Dragon.
I have made this wallpapers so they can be used in Windows wallpaper slide show.
With this set I wanted to achieve the effect of selecting characters in a game. This set feature five characters from the game/series, Ryomou Shimei, Kan'u Unchou, Ryofu Housen, Ryuubi Gentoku and Sonsaku Hakufu.
The wallpaper(s) is made from few "section":
1) "selector"
2) Character
3) Character base info: name, school and class, three measures and height.

Primarily I wanted only make it with Ryomou, Sonsaku and Kan'u. Then I have decide to add Ryuubi and Ryofu. Ryofu have take me much time because I did not have her render, so I was making one. Also by Ryuubi I needed to make some more edits. I also wanted to add some more characters, Chou'un & Kakoen. But there was some obstacles. At first, it was time, making five have take much of it. Second, I did not have any images of them that would fit in that concept, or they were low resolution, etc.. And third one, the most biggest obstacle, I'm lazy.


Name: 闘士 (Toushi)
Game: IkkiTousen: Shining Dragon
Links:
- Ryomou: 1920x1200 | 1920x1080
- Kan'u: 1920x1200 | 1920x1080
- Ryofu: 1920x1200 | 1920x1080
- Ryuubi: 1920x1200 | 1920x1080
- Sonsaku: 1920x1200 | 1920x1080
I recommend:
- download all five wallpapers
- make sure that the wallpapers have this order*:
--- 01 Ryomou
--- 02 Kan'u
--- 03 Ryofu
--- 04 Ryuubi
--- 05 Sonsaku
- set them to change every 10 seconds (without shuffle).
- enjoy the slide show :-)
*if necessary rename the files, but it should be in order when downloaded from theAnimeGallery.com

PS3 - Dark Souls

I have made new wallpaper for PS3.
It is to one of the best games I have played, Dark Souls.
I was only going to change the wallpaper I had on my PS3 to something else. And I was like: "hmmm, a Dark Souls wallpaper would be good now". There are many good Dark Souls wallpapers, but none of them was exactly what I was looking for... so I have made my own :-P
I hope Dark Souls fans will like it.

CANAAN - Rainbow in the Dark

My new wallpapers is to the series CANAAN.
This wallpapers are inspired by the song Rainbow in the Dark from the band Dio led by metal legend Ronnie James Dio.
I have redo this wallpaper four times to end up with this version. I had the idea maybe a year ago, but I could not end up to give it the right shape. But Monday (11.II.2013), I have take a little pause in work, closed eyes and listen to this great song... And finally I have see it.



Name: Rainbow in the Dark
Series: CANAAN
Resolution: 1920x1200
Link:
- Alphard version: http://www.theanimegallery.com/gallery/image:159416
- Canaan version: http://www.theanimegallery.com/gallery/image:159415
I wanted to catch few things from the lyrics:
  • Rainbow
    - Alphard and Canaan are "the rainbows" left in the dark. All the characters of CANAAN were like lost in the darkness, so thats is why I think it suits to lyrics: "You've been left on your own, Like a rainbow in the dark".
  • Dark
    - ... what to tell to this, hmmm, don't know, the wallpaper just needed to be dark.
  • Lighting
    - it is pretty dominant in the wallpaper, it shows the freedom which both want to, some light in the dark (Canaan have found it).
  • image caught in time
    - this is interpreted with the clocks and the image of Alphard/Canaan "swallowed by the darkness". This should also remind on one of the last scenes from the anime, in the gallery where Maria stands before the pictures she took.

PS3 - Final Fantasy XIII-2

My new wallpaper for Sony PlayStation 3 XrossMediaBar.
I wanted to make wallpaper for PS3 with Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII-2 and here it is.
This wallpaper have take me almost the whole day to make. The base was done quick (background, Lightning...), but then I have constantly changing the XMB look. at first I have a simple one, then I have changed it to a metal look with the "circle" for the selected category. I made the circle little similar to the gate in Hisoria Crux. But I did not like that one.
After that I have try to use the circle as background for more icons, not only for the category icon. At first I have add three more, later the rest of them. And this part took me a lot of time. I needed to check many times if the circles have the right size and are on right place under the icons.

Goddesses

My first wallpaper for the Year 2013 (Yes, yes, I have started it in Dec 2012).
It is from the series Ah! My Goddess!.

What to tell to this wallpaper. Only that, that I had idea to make a wallpaper with 4 characters in panels. But at first I did not know to with series.
At first I was thinking on IkkiTousen, but I have made really many wallpapers to this series, so it wanted something else. Then I was thinking on Bleach, with Yoruichi, SoiFon and Rukia, but I missed one character that would fit in the concept. Next was Bakuretsu Tenshi, but I was like "NO, at first finish the unfinished".
After some time suddenly 'Ta Daaa', Ah! My Goddess!, that is the right one!! And the result you can see below.
