Chinese New Year - Year of the Horse 02 by ckaj Chinese New Year - Year of the Horse 02 by ckaj
Edit: for the second grayscale version of the chinese new year wallpaper please click on:
ckaj.deviantart.com/art/Chines…

This wallpaper is an experiment.
I combined european art and design with the zodiac-design of China. It is a very close symbiosis.
The world is getting closer together each day.
All the art in the world is influenced by something. Everything affects everything else.

So I ask you to comment: what you think? Especially Chinese people. Because I all I have is a German point of view. :-)

Lovely, but I think it'd look a lot better if the character for "Horse" was traditional :) Other than that - really pretty :lol:

You are right, thank you so much for the comment. I prepared another design for commercial use in China and I wrote the letter in traditional Mandarin.
It is very good looking with the traditional Chinese. But... is this typical for all of China, to write the "Horse" in traditional or just some regions?

Mainland China uses simplified characters. So does Singapore. Hong Kong and Taiwan use traditional.

That said, calligraphy looks a lot better in the traditional form :) But I lived in Hong Kong, so I'm biased ;)
