View Full Version : Akira Wall

01-23-2004, 11:31 PM
did this (the bike needed a considerable touching up to get rid of pixilation) anyways, i'm not sure if it needs something else. i really don't want to put text in this one personally. whatcha think?

*note wall is 1280x1024 if you want a smaller one let me know

I think it's a good concept. But I would just take out the filter from the background, and grayscale the background.

01-24-2004, 12:20 AM
hmmm, without filter on bg:

01-24-2004, 04:19 AM
Great concept!

I prefer the 2nd one.

Looks much better without the filter, cool wall!

I dunno; with the filter it's kinda tacky, but without, it just doesn't fit. I think you need to simplify the background, without taking too much away from the shape; something that reduces the details, but not skews it around...

Anyways, the concept is good, and I like the dark simplicity to it; but I stand by my statement that manga scans/screenshots shouldn't go on walls in most cases; I guess with Akira your choices are kinda limited though.

hmmm, any ideas on how to reduce the detail without messing up the pic?

oh, and i don't think the chara was a screenshot here's the original i used. (http://www.northarc.com/images/akira/akira04.jpg)

i agree with Miko for the filter thing. try another one
good concept ^^

I've always found a low intensity Watercolor or Cutout filter to work best...then if it's still too strong after you apply it...go to EDIT then FADE the filter.

01-24-2004, 03:20 PM
this seems a bit better (faded cutout), i'm still not sure though...

*edit: fixed levels on chara

Seems better now.

01-24-2004, 04:22 PM
It does look better.... and I said manga scan/screenshot. That's a manga scan.

01-24-2004, 04:47 PM
his skin seems really orange. is it supposed to be like that? did you try changing the levels?

01-24-2004, 05:07 PM
fixed levels (see last post), i was too worried about the bg to notice i guess, thanks pooky

01-24-2004, 11:24 PM
ok, well unless someone else has something to add, i think i'll consider this done, seems it is to me. so here's a 1024x768 version:

Yep, now looks realy better.

01-25-2004, 11:38 AM
perfect now!!

can you do something for that cracky line in the sky? what do you think of a light grey hue on the chara? btw good job

01-26-2004, 11:29 AM
crackly line in the sky? hmm, you mean where it changes from one shade of grey to another? as for the hue on the chara, i wanted him to be sharp so he really stood out on the wall, and i think a grey hue would make him look washed out a bit

01-26-2004, 03:34 PM
Looks great, nice revisions!

01-27-2004, 03:14 AM
yes the cragky line is that..maybe you can blur it or something...
for the chara: :o :^_^: ok!
