I got around to finishing another wall. Feh, like I said in my last wall, there are too many damn scenic walls XD . So ... I've made an interior wall. It's not the outside that matters, it's the inside that counts. Or so that is what mothers tell their children XD . Anyway, there is still a view of the outside, but for the most part this is a simple interior wall.

I got bored and wanted to experiment once again with enhancing or extending a scan. I found this lovely scan on Minitokyo and knew I could do something with it. The basic window was included, but had no view what-so-ever, just plain white. Obviously something had to be done about that. After creating the outside ocean view, I felt it would look nicer if dust particles and light particles could be shown filtering through the window.

After a little work on the lighting and particles, I sought to improve the interior by adding personal touches. On the wall, there are images, lets pretend they are photographs, of the character and her friend. I thought it would be cool to make it seem more personal to her and added those to show it meant something and it also helped tie in the theme of the wall. Tried to make potted plants ... the pots look a little wierd ... guess I don't work well with pot ... anyway the overall theme is that she is waiting for her friend to return and is thinking about the times they've had together.

Thus the pictures on the wall and her expression. Also take notice that one of the photos on the wall is of her and her friend at the ocean and that the view is of the ocean. Hardy har har, I'm a genius XD . I also decided that dramatic camera angles would pull off a better effect and went with a sort of angled shot and used a different perspective to compliment the original image.

I then did some fine tuning with the walls, extended arts of the window, colored this and that, and a bunch of other stuff I don't feel like typing XD . Bleh, just an experiment, I have found a few flaws and may get to them later if I feel like it, but right now I don't want to look at it anymore XD .

Hours Taken: 6 Hours

    It's a really nice interior, makes you feel comfortable. I'd give a nice qualification also to the drawing, it's really good, to my way of seeing it.

    I never knew U can be so talented in creating a story just by designing your CG-looking wallpaper, Tantaga! :) Ah, scenic walls are my worst enemy, but by seeing outside through the window I see you designed it quite well and paid extra attention to the perspective, which deserves kudos points! XD Also, I know how much of a pain the pots were to you, seeing as how it looks a bit dark on the lower left corner, but still it's not a major flaw! ^_^' As for the character, I'm uber-impressed as how you delicately describe her personality with both the expression and her photos on the wall, a first to see I might add! Overall, you achieved in creating a wallpaper that describes the character as a cool person! Thumbs up, Tantaga! ;)
