Hmm still no reaction, too much text or is "The Sandbox" simply a lonely place? xD
Anyways, I finished the version with the art club members only and started submitting the scans, but hit the 10 uploads
per 24h limit.
I guess I'll submit the wallpaper as part of the next 10 uploads and see what happens.
The rest of the scans will fellow afterwards, well not like they're rare or anything. >.<
I've got something here. but I don't know if should upload this as a wallpaper or not.
To be precise I tried arranging the character artworks at the end of each chapter from the sketchbook manga in a way that (hopefully) the eyes can accept. xD
I first tried it a couple of months with ago paint.net,
but the result made me think it could be better and so I retried with photoshop and better scans yesterday/today.
I played with sharpness, contrast, brightness etc. too make the slightly different artworks fit together better.
An absurdly small upper body (President, guy on the left) and an absurdly big left hand (Fū, the girl on the right holding up the brush) which messed up the proportions way too much got resized. xD
I also tried to stay true to the data on the characters heights and tried to make them interact with each other.
The feets look a bit weird put together like this so I'll add some more of the main cat characters to hide them some more.
At this point I don't know what to do with the background, hopefully I'll find something useful in the volume 9-10 raw scans, which I haven't seen yet.
Also I'm not too happy with the placement of Ooba (the one one the left side holding her hands up), there just wasn't
enough room to fit her in the front anymore.
In the ALL character version it play out juse fine thanks to Asakura-sensei, but not in the art club only version.
I probably will put her more towards the center/right of the picture.
Actually it kind of looks like Kasugano-Sensei (in the center) is looking behind her, maybe this way I can make the two
of them seem to interact with each other? o.O
Kasugano-Sensei: Who're you?
Ooba: *lifts her hands up shocked* ...I'm a member of the art club! T_T
Now that would be a perfect fit for Oobas character. xD
Mh yes, actually I think I will do exactly that.
Anyway, remember the All character version I mentioned shortly?
This is the pain.net version
The version with all characters sure is crowded, but I guess I'll still redo it in photoshop later,
especially because I spent a lot of thought/time on how to place the characters together.
Ok, that's about it! I tried to avoid a wall of text, but it's still a lot to read. Sorry! >.<
