.: Wallpaper of the Month :.

Theme: Leiji Matsumoto

This month's contest is a bit special, because at the end of it, we will be celebrating Princess Minako's birthday. Because of this event, I decided the theme for this month's contest should be her favorite manga artist, the almost legendary Leiji Matsumoto. So, yes, this month's contest is somewhat my/our not so secret "super secret" present for her birthday.
But who is Leiji Matsumoto? Matsumoto is famous for his space operas such as Space Battleship Yamato, Queen Emeraldas, Captain Harlock and Galaxy Express 999. His style is characterized by tragic heroes; tall, slender, fragile-looking heroines with strong wills and in some cases, god-like powers; and a love of analog gauges and dials in his spacecraft.
What I want you to do is; find a character designed by Mr. Matsumoto and make a wallpaper out of it. Since I'm sure most of you know nothing about the artist in question, I suggest you to look about his works on wikipedia.

  1. The wallpaper must be your own work (if not you get the boot );
  2. The wallpaper must not be already on AW;
  3. Animation may not be used;
  4. Hentai will not be accepted, however mild ecchi is allowed;

  7. All entries must have "Animewallpapers.com" along with your forum name on the bottom of your entry (all of the submissions will be compared to the AW.com regulations and uploaded on the site);
  8. All posts must include the anime/game name the characters on their wallpaper are from. If the characters don't belong anywhere categorize them as "Miscellaneous";
