lol, I really gotta stop starting on walls and then not bothering with finishing them.

BUT, Im completly happy with the results of this wall.

So, I had this insane urge to do another Yusuke Namakura wall....and so I did ;3

I found the scan online and nearly had a heart attack from how awesome it was. I found a few others, but I knew that this scan had to come first.

Overall, I spent about 13 hours on it, with about 58 layers, most of which were from the girls vector. But it was so worth it.

Its also a tribute to Asain Kung-Fu Generation, who produces awesome music and is awesome for having Yusuke do some of their album art/music videos. The quote comes from their song "Rewrite", which just seemed to really fit with the concept of the wall. Its also an excuse to use what I learned in typography.

And of course, c-n-c is very much appreciated <33

I really enjoy the colors. [Pink and black ftw!] And the fact the city is viewed from the design on the guitar is pretty sweet, especially since it's a transition from day to night. That actually confused me there for a second, cause I didn't see the rest of the girl's skirt, and then I was like, "Oh, yea, guitar, lulz."

I think the only thing I dislike is the dots that outline the cloud puffs, but even that doesn't get in the way of how awesome it is.

[PS: I can think of a certain group [lulz, group] that will be viewing this thread in the future. Oh me, oh my.]

Ooh... That looks oh so smexy.XD I'm loving the simplicity and the vectoredness. Very nicely done Maru.

Ooooh. Very nicely done. Really sticks with Nakamura's simple-lined style...though he's been getting more spazzy with color recently(which, perhaps you did this intentionally, has had a lot of purples in it).

Any chance I could snag you to do a few more of these with other works he's used for Ajikan covers? I'm sure we're all aware of my fanboyism.

(Also, the song is "Rewrite". You said "Revive" in your post.)

...yeah, I did. Blah, I too lazy to change it xD

And of course! I plan on doing a few others very, very soon. If you had something specific in mind then let me know [and chanes are I may not have the scan... I know Im missing a few @_@]

Looks awesome Maru, one SMALL change to perfect it. Make the guitar look more "3d" right now it looks very flat... add some dimension.
