Do you choose your characters randomly when you make a wall?

I know that this question seem stupid, but I will ask it anyways... and I think most people just randomly choose a character they like.

In my case, I mostly choose randomly, when I see a scan that I feel like walling it. But I also just pick a series, and find a good scan of it...

Usually if I like a series I'll find scans of the series so I can wall it.
Sometimes I'll just see a picture I like and decide to wall it.
No rhyme, no reason.

Haha.. ^^;; I'm probably to exact opposite. I'm really picky with the characters, pose, quality, among other things. I don't have much time to make walls so I always have to make the best out of the time I have.

Hmm..I guess I don't want to just wall any pretty character.. It's more like I want to create something with a meaning behind it.. A theme where the wall becomes more than just something slapped onto a background... so the character has to be chosen carefully to fit the theme =3

Hehe.. I just love it when people say "whoa! that's a beautiful wall!" Kinda makes it all worth it when it has that great a impact on people~ XD

I do in two ways.

1) make a background and find a perfect scan for it

and

2) find a really good scan that you like and make a background for it.

I'm not really picky about series or characters. I just wall whatever scan gives me an idea for a background :)

I somehow do it as DJ does. Yet, most of the time if the scan somehow attracts me or puts out an idea I go and make it. OR it depends on my mood at that moment. ^^

Hmm...

well doing like dj-of-e ^_^ i make a background and search for good scan for it or if i feel like taking this scan and making a background afterwards...

erm...what else to say...yeah i always listen to music while choosing which scan i'd like to wall. the music helps me to get an idea how i'd like it to look like later ^^

I usually wall only series I have seen/read or know something about, that way... I know the overall mood the series has so I can reflect that in my wall.

Then again, I have a thing for walling my three favourite manga artists

1. Mokona Apapa (Clamp)
2. Kaori Yuki (Angel Sanctuary)
3. Yoshitoshi Abe (Haibane Renmei)

I think that anyone who looks at the walls I've made will see this pattern quite clearly. XD
The only times I really break away from this pattern, is for a contest or a requested wall. But the majority of my walls are from these three artist ^:^

I always start with a scan I love, extract it... and then make a BG for it.

I wait for a perfect allignment of the outer planets, when that happens i pick a number between 11 and 42 and devide the outcome by 3.82
Next i multiply the outcome with the average ambient temperature.
This gives me a number. when it's odd i make a background and then search for a scan
But if it's even then i pick a scan that has the right "feel" to it and try to create a background that more or less fits the scan.

the picture i see usually gives me inspiration, and i just choose which gives me the most inspiration at that time

That pretty much sums it up for me, too. XD Sometimes you just come across a pic and think, "I've gotta wall that."

I too sometimes randomly pick any nice/pretty anime scan to wall. and i usually search for a scan before making the background. I'm not too picky on which character/pose and stuffs to use for a wall, as long as the scan matches the bg.. i'm happy enough ^^'' Just that sometimes I can run out of ideas on what bg to make, actually most of the time -___-" well im not that good in walling yet, more of a beginner so... XD

I usually pick the image I want to wall, first. I generally tend to make walls of series I really like but that are less known (like Clover) or of a new series that I'm getting into, like Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle. Unless I find a pic I'm REALLY enamoured of (like Fuuma leaning against Kamui), I don't usually make walls of series that already have a lot of excellent walls out there, like X/1999. I suppose I'm "pimping" my lesser-known favorites. :D

I like your style + pattern of walling. It's important to find a style that best fits yourself and know about the mood of the character/ wall~ but it's hard to do... ^_^ I m still finding a style + learning, got more things to learn! XD ...and learning from others can always gain experience + become better and better. Thanks for all that give me feedbacks on my walls!

If i make a wall, which i dont really anymore because my skills suck beyond hope. Ill make it off of the anime i just watched. Like if i dl the new Bakuretsu tenchi (which i am atm) and i get the mood, ill make a wall off it ^_^

Well, when i am able to make wallpapers..it'll be by what i know about the movie/series..the more i know or have seen of them, then i'd use them more....
