Rip van Winkle by ChronoTata Rip van Winkle by ChronoTata
Here it is, my long overdued wallpaper. This time it's Rip van Winkle, the huntress. Sorry it's not very good. ^^"

Credits to Hellsing Project for providing the HQ scan. I felt guilty retracing it.

Original art by Kohta Hirano. Colouring by me.

Comments and criticisms welcome.

Rip's a cutie she is, and her insane manner only emphasizes that.

Here though, the shade, tone, colour and perspective show the huntress in her full stride and focus. Through these elements, you have emphasized that. Good Show Good Sir, good show.

(that aside, i REALLY need me one of em flintlocks)

it's a shame there arent any more pictures of rip that are epic like this
(well she isn't a main character - she got killed in ova 4 in bout 7 min or so :P)

Lol. Yeah. It's surprising enough there are these many pictures of Rip at all considering she appears in one volume. XP

I have no idea why she would have freckles but black hair though. XP Maybe she's actually a redhead lol.

I FOUND IT!!!

You! I actually have that up as my wallpaper currently, screenshot'd it, and shared the screenshot on my DA.

Was wondering -- do you want me to take it down or can I keep it up giving proper credit/links to this one?

Other than that, I loved the way you colored that. It's beautiful, although you got the catchphrase under her name just slightly wrong ><;;

:iconchronotata:
ChronoTata Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2008
The catchphase is actually on purpose. I don't like the Darkhorse or the Randommanga translation of her line. :P

If you have it up as a desktop screenshot, it's fine. I'd appreciate it if you give a link back to mine. :)

Cool. :) Also, I noticed you have a widescreen but the wallpaper you used is a normal aspect ratio one. I made a widescreen version for it here, which you might find useful.

It actually fits the laptop screen fairly decently the way it is now, I thought ^^ If I was using it on Monster's screen, I'd probably go with the widescreen though.

Thanks nonetheless ^^

I actually found it on a Russian wallpaper site somewhere. I was so happy when I found you though; meant I could actually post the artist up with it XD

It seems that my wallpapers are circulated around quite a bit. A bit surprised actually. I never put my name on it cause I don't want to spoil the wallpaper, and I never thought they would be circulated outside my dA anyway. So now loads of people don't seem to realise I made them. :P

Thanks for the fav! I did make a widescreen version of this wallpaper for someone at some point, if that's what you're looking for.

Ooh, yay! That's what I'm looking for! XD Unfortunately it's so big (AND PRETTY AHH IT'S PRETTY) that my computer shrinks it and the quality goes down. D: I can't win with computers, I tell you. *shakes fist*

But again, great job OMG. *fangirls*

WOO!! Great job coloring!! ^^ And awesome job with making the wallpaper!! I LOVE this!

I love how you made the colors express a rather violent mood, to me that's sorta how Rip comes out to be. Though I might be wrong 0.o I haven't read much of the manga with her in it quite yet...

Either way, again, great and awesome job!!

:iconchronotata:
ChronoTata Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
Yeah, Rip is a pretty violent character, but a bit shy and insecure. She's a great character. Read more of the manga and you'll see. Thanks a lot!
