In mark of our grand opening, I have created this custom wallpaper featuring The Fifth Mizukage, Mei. This wallpaper was created using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator CS3. When we were first introduced to the other Kage, I was and have always been drawn to Mei. And when chapter 457 was released, Kishimoto gave us our first glimpse of those same Kage in COLOR(woot!!)! Right away, I felt inspired to get started and create one of the FIRST illustrations of the Fifth Mizukage, Mei.
I did not do the line art. PokeFreak was kind enough to let fellow deviants use his line art, (thanks PokeFreak!) and from there, the process began. I colored it in Illustrator and created the wallpapers via photoshop. Do the waves behind the Mizukage look familiar?! =D The waves and the concept for the Mizukage themed wallpaper were inspired from The Great Wave off Kanagawa, a famous woodblock print by the Japanese artist Hokusai.
When The Fifth Mizukage was initially created (2009) , it was not a wallpaper, but an illustration just because I love Mei! I knew that when I finished, that I was going to turn it into a wallpaper. If you are interested in seeing that version, it can also be viewed here (onegai ^^). Now, on to the good stuff:
This wallpaper is available in 11 different resolutions :
And as a bonus, I also made two versions for the iphone!
You can download all 12 versions in the zip file (9.62 mb) via megaupload ^^
Please comment if you like and/or download! I spent a lot of time on this, enjoy! ^__^
