Akira: Tetsuo WP
My intention was to create an Akira wallpaper for BlueBlade
AKIRA using original cel artwork and layers of 'square netting'
on top and as BG but realised it wasn't really going to work to full
effect. The trouble was, the character image of Tetsuo was scanned in
from a trading card and having it enlarged to 800x600 for example and
keeping the same quality as the 3x2 inch card was impossible, even after
spending time using different effects etc to cover up quality loss (notice
the clumpped speckles on his face and slightly blurred lines). The only
way I can think of would be for me to re-draw the outline on A4, scan
that in, then colour it myself, but hadn't time for that. In the end
I still produced this smaller version, which doesn't look too bad, and
obviously the smaller I make the image size, the better it looks.
