WEWY by lemontree11 WEWY by lemontree11
Name was kinda random...
I picked it up from Miyabi of Buono! and Hello Project

The image didn't come out as nicely as I wanted it to. In fact, instead of giving it more of a "Shibuya" type of look, I wanted to give it that whole LA urban feel. I heard people say that Shibuya was like the Manhattan of New York and such, so I was like, "hmmm, L.A has no central area like Tokyo or New York (infact all of its touristic or hangout sites are really far from eachother!)."

Well anyhoo, that didn't happen, but I was thinking about it...

Oh, btw its the 109 building, according to references... Tell me if I'm wrong.

Um, The outfit itself, was based from a TON of Japanese magazines. I thought urban, urban, urban, yet casual. She has headphones to listen messages from. Her cell phone is in her pouch. I hear pouches are pretty trendy as well, and who knows what else she might have in there XP more gadgets weapons, makeup! The, shirt is my faveorite, and I got it based from Vivi magazine (i think)... or was it the Nikes... YES NIKE! The hat was kinda random, but i added the light pattern to make it a bit more unique. Also, I had to add the badges on the hat that were the secondary objective of the wewy game. Collect the badges or else its game over.

I also listened to japanese music for inspiration and motivation:
Mika Nakashima- Destiny Lotus
Yoshida Brothers& Monkey Majik- Change
Abingdon Boys School- Howling
Aqua Timez- Alones
Utada Hikaru- Distance
The Black Horn- Wana
Bono!- Renai Rider
(and a few more i dont remember)

great game, you got the feeling of the picture pretty well. At least whenever I think of the game "The World Ends with You" that's pretty much the picture that comes to my head.

ha ha ha Im currently playing the game. Its wonderful. Actually I was sorta close to the idea only the headphones that the guy wears in the game is because he doesnt like to socialize. For me i thought its where he gets his messages from XP
I guess I was wrong

Love it! This is awesome. I really like the pose and clothing, very nice job.

And the city background looks awesome. Was it just a filter on photoshop, or did you get it to look like that some other way..?

lemontree11 Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2008  Professional General Artist
nope nope, the crowd of people is just a filter.
I feel awful because i lost the link of the image, but im sure people will recognize who the photographer is because hes awfully popular or else i woudnt have found the image under popular :)

I've been waiting for your entry <.<. you made me worried!!!!!!!.

I like your character, especially the shoes. . . yea your shoes = awesome. Nice combination of shoes!. I like how you added the original title to it; makes the feel look nostalgic for some reason.

and hes like were not all like you -_- and im like it doesn't hurt to READ

Yeah, sorry it was last minute XP

I really love this one! I love how you drew a city skyline with stars/sky and then the urban style of the city, yes it does look and remind me of Shibuya, really awesome job! :D I think this is my fave of yours! :3

I worked my butt off on the skyline. I had fun though, I did a rough sketch on paper and tried to do it on photoshop. Those photoshop classes are really helping me by letting me use other tools more freely :)
