Edit: WHOA.....where did the DD come from?! @.@ Did not expect that! Thanks so much! 8D

FOR PERSONAL DESKTOP USE ONLY.

Do not use for anything else or alter it in any way without my permission.
If you want to share the image, it must be intact (no cropping the signature) and with full credits linking back to this deviation or my profile.


Find this (and the bloodless versions) at Anime Paper [link] Minitokyo [link] and Brokentone [link] (Brokentone has alternative resolutions besides HD)

…Yes, Nysha has walled a bishie!


And for those who already knew I was working on this, it’s finally done! D:

So I had two main goals before this project: I wanted to wall a bishie (way too many girls in my gallery), and I wanted to wall bamboo (because I love bamboo!). And I didn’t want to wall just any bishie – I prefer the more serious and badass ones lol.

And thus Yone Kazuki’s fabulous artwork of Saito was the perfect match for what I wanted to do. I really like her official artwork, and Saito is my fav character design of hers. :D

Character scan:
[link]


The basic idea of the wall’s scene is that Saito is getting ready to defend/fight against an antagonist in the middle of a bamboo forest. Expect a super showdown with bamboos hacked over and everything. The extra blood is for those certain fangirls who like that. >D A “clean” version without any blood is also available (on Brokentone, AnimePaper and Minitokyo)

Everything was painted via vector masks like how I usually do. And 100% Photoshop with my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. The background was made from scratch, while I used some various bamboo reference photos I took during my Japan trip to get the basic perspective. Some details of the original scan were either incorrect (the directions of the string’s braid) or too dark to make out (the sword’s handle), and I had to reference some tsuka-maki images [link] to see how the handle is wrapped.

Check out the progress pic! [link]

And also a gif animation showing the steps from each day I worked on this: [link]

And for those who wondered how, here’s the hair tutorial: [link]

The hardest part was actually starting this and deciding on a final crop to use. @.@ I first had a much closer/portrait crop, but I felt more of his body needed to be seen, especially the lower hand, because without it the string he’s pulling looks very awkward. XD

Basic stats:
Time taken: in 16 sittings, about 4-6 hours each time, over the course of about 2 months (I was busy with other RL stuff), so roughly 80 hours total, more or less.
Layers: about 400
Psd size: 292mb at 2844x1600px

Get the 16:10 and standard resolutions at Brokentone! [link]

Special thanks to Deto, alenas, Kitten, and ashlie for your continual support/suggestions on msn. :3

Enjoy! Just no stealing or removing my sig, or I’ll hunt you down just like him. D<

This is a excellent Rohin illustration, showing emotion and focus. The blood adds realism to the picture and seriousness. The bamboo is the proper background for this sort of picture and does not distract from the central character.

It's .. It's really, REALLY beautiful. I do not know how long you draw to reach such a resulting output, but now we can truly say that you have a talent as we rarely see.

I do not know what to say. The colors are perfect, the layout, the placement of lights and shadows, eyes .... (and how fucking sexy handsome, must say * q *)

No, really, I am lost for words. The decor is great too, without being overbearing, the hair is beautiful, her face, the colors ... I'M TOO JEALOUS! I'm in love, this is it!

Initially, this is a friend who showed me this picture and I thought "Where it comes from, where it comes from?!) Until I see your address at the bottom of DevianART image. BINGO And, I found this beautiful drawing.

So as you said in the description, I'm allowed to put a wallpaper on my computer (and nothing reassures you) but I really like this design a lot!

Anyway, I'll stop there or I'd be able to give you a novel on it XD But anyway, congratulations, you have talent in its purest form! ♥
