Artist | Student | Film & Animation
United States
Double major at Middle Tennessee State University. Digital Animation and Japanese!
(Also an art minor!)

I like minimalism. Making stuff like this is a hobby of mine.

I'm on Steam:…

Operating System(s): OS X Mavericks, Windows 7 x64,
Tools: Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator CS6, Autodesk Maya
Games: Walking encyclopedia on anything Metal Gear Solid. Other favorite games are: Gravity Daze, Metroid, Pikmin, Shin Megami Tensei, Legend of Zelda, Crash Bandicoot, Paper Mario, and among other titles.

(Check out my Backlog to see what I'm currently working on!)
I die a little inside every single time I open this website in a new tab. Those new submissions...ugh.

Feeling less and less motivated to make something. Nothing seems worth the time to make now, I don't know how to stand out.

How do you go about making your wallpapers in Illustrator?
I haven't used IL for long and was wondering how these are created.

What I do is open Illustrator, open my source image in a 1920 x 1080 window and then duplicate the image layer. The top layer is what I use as a reference, but the bottom layer is what I actually work on.

With the bottom layer selected, I take samples of color from the image that I want to use as the base. Then I do a fine outline with the Pen tool, no stroke, but the fill being the color I selected. The rest is basically repeat with the different colors of the object. It's time consuming work, but fun. If you wind up selecting the top layer and start working on it, you'll know since it becomes visible. I generally hide all vector work until the fine details need to be done such as connecting surfaces. Master the Pen tool, that's all I can really say.

Then I just save the image via "save for web" as a PNG since JPG will have artifacts.

Did you do any other Persona Wallpapers? I had a Souji one that looked like your art style that I found on tumblr. I found you while looking for it, but it's not here. Not sure if there was just another person who did minimalist designs or if you have some unposted, but I'd love to know.

The only one's that I have made are in the Gallery. I'm yet to make some more. The person you are talking about is my friend Orpheus since he was the one who made this: [link]

I haven't made any more P4/P3 walls in a long time. But keep checking for more later on.

Dude, I really love your minimalist wallpapers.
Hope to see the Yukiko one come out soon to change my PS3 wallpaper (just changed to the Igor one)

Keep up with the awesome job.

Hey thanks for that! I was beginning to worry all these walls weren't getting to an audience, glad to see people appreciate them.

If you have an image of Yukiko in mind I could make the wallpaper out of it, just send it via imgur and I can get started!
