Well I said I wasn't going to do another wallpaper for a while: that wasn't true apparently.

I also said the next one was going to be chibi: that also wasn't true.

Anyways, this is a very special wallpaper from me today. It's one that I very much liked how it turned out. I don't have much time for explanations but for some reason the thought of a "Queen Kairin" really appealed to me. So I did one.

Here's the pic.



The thumbnail (not really a thumbnail since it's so big but, the preview let's call it) shows a bit of aliasing for some reason. Don't let it fool you into thinking that the full res is all jaggedy and such. Download the full res version to see her in all her glory! Btw, yes that's the sun behind it. As I said I'll explain later when I have more time. Until then, please download the wallpaper and enjoy! I worked VERY hard on this to finish it before the banner contest ended. Please remember that. Thanks.

Here are the links as usual:

Be back later!

EDIT: *sigh* as usual I noticed something after I posted the wallpaper. It's fixed now but anyone who downloaded the zips should probably get version 2 to get the fixed version. Sorry about that guys. I guess in my excitement I overlooked something again. I really have to stop that.

Thanks you guys. Means a lot. Unfortunately I don't know when I'll get around to the chibi wallpaper. I have to start on the Halloween wallpaper asap to get it down by Oct. 31st. I think it'll have chibi Kairin in it with regular Kairin. Then I pretty much will definately stop doing wallpapers (maybe do a Christmas one) because I have to start my new portfolio to get into college.

Anyways, some promised info about the wallpaper.

Kairin and I were talking about wanting to do some cosplay. I thought it would look awesome if she dressed up to be a queen. Turns out if fit her great. But that alone wasn't going to cut it. So I decided to give her a theme. Queen of the Sun. Yep, that big glowy scary face thing behind her is an abstract sun-thingy. Also the runes drawn on her dress are from an ancient song passed down for centuries about the Sun god.

The dress she's wearing is one used during the ceremony of the Sun god. It depicts the rising sun on her right hand side, with sleeves of sunset. The orb she has in her lap is called the Orb of the Heavens and shows the the Sun from an outerspace-type viewpoint.

The rubies on her crown are called SunFlame rubies. Very hard to find around these parts you know.

And what else can I say? It was a lot of fun designing her outfit + doing the background. This was probably the fastest time I've ever drawn something of this magnitude. Worked almost all day coloring for 7 days is always...interesting. I was afraid that if I rushed things out turn out too sloppy but I believe this was not the case with the picture.

Thanks for your continued support of Kairin-chan, everyone! Until next time!

Oh! Kairin looks...stunning as usual. Btw, is that for the Holloween costume thingy or just Kairin in a royalty looks?

No it's not Halloween related. But I bet I could have snuck it in as the Halloween wallpaper since I'm sneaky. But I didn't want to do that.

I actually started it about 2 weeks before the Halloween banner contest was announced. I just started the rough colors when they put the contest up. As luck would have it, it just looked like it would fit not only the Kairin requirement () but it also has a Halloweeny-feel to it due to the colors + the sun's eyes reminding me of a jack-o-lantern.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I really do appreciate it!

colors make it be an autumn pic

Who Kairin? None! The only "anime" she is from is AnimeSuki... she's our mascot

You know, I think it would be a great idea if Kairin were to have her very own comic strip in the forum. She could be turned into another member of the forum that makes jokes or comments about the recent shows, or make announcements regarding animesuki and stuff like that.

You could even go the "ebil" way and make her a fansubber.

I am aware that something like a comic strip would take a tremendous effort, but I think it could work if it's something that's posted every two months or so.

Anyway, it's just a though.

Actually Daniel E. I was playing around with the idea of a comic strip but what I want to do even more is a full fledged Kairin manga. I have a cool story in my head but I don't have the resources to do it myself (unless you guys want to wait a few months for each chapter. and by a few months I mean 8+)

Anyways, you may have noticed a new Kairin image on the front page. NightWish wanted to get some more Kairin on the front page and asked me to do one. As usual his idea of what he wanted and what I did didn't match but I think it turned out okay. I was playing around with a new look for Kairin (hairstyle, outfits, things of that nature). So yeah here's a better shot of it:



Hope you guys like it. It's chibi Kairin in a Miko Shrine Maiden outfit. I think she looks cute.

That's certainly interesting Green². Not sure what the point of that is but I appreciate the thought.

Anyways, I decided to whip up a wallpaper of the above chibi. It's nothing much but it's a good one for you minimalists out there who don't want much on their desktops.



Here are the links:

Hope you guys like them.
