This is for the second UA wall contest, for more info click here.

A more realistic simple wall by me. The hardest part was extracting the scan, this is why i like to do guy walls, i dont have to worry about cutting out long wavy hair, but i did it anyway. Also i had the scan cleaned up a bit. Heres the original: http://download.minitokyo.net/view/6069.jpg Take a look at what i did with it.

Layers: 50 +
Time: 2 hours

    Well u did a good job with the wavey thing. If u make the girl with short hair or with her hair up then the wavy thing wouldn't be a problem

    haha I know da feeling dude. I went the same annoying time when I was doing my yami to boushi wallpaper >_<

    anyway da wallpaper looks nice~ love the detail on the sand, sea and sky. nice extraction also~ the boat and mountain me think need more details.

    all in all, sweet work. just need more details. ^_^

    My God you are fast at doing these entries lol!
    Lighting is done well... I think the mountains need a rocky texture and the water a few random sparkles here and there, otherwise excellent! :D

    your scenic background is quite stunning, but i think the mountains may need a little more detail and the sand didn't quite look "real" enough. i really luv the ocean water, dusky sky, and the sun looks very realistic. i'm glad you used a sun instead of a cliched moon. and you did a wonderful job with the extraction. you weren't kidding about the hair... XD

    Very nice. The background looks great. Even the scan of the girl is good. :)

    This is a truly gorgeous wall!
    It is so attractive and has a very powerful look that can grab a person's attention the first second they see it!
    The first thing I noticed about this wall is how beautiful and well presented the colors are! The blue sea to match Misuzu's eyes and the golden sand to match her hair. It's a really interesting and ingenious piece of work!
    I want to mention...you did so well with the extraction! It was something I noticed as soon as I saw the wall. Each strand of hair is well defined! But that little boat in the distance looks a bit out of place.
    You know, this background is sensational! The shimmering water and sand have nice effects to enhance their look. I really like that.
    I give a 10/10 for this one! It is a wonderful wall of Misuzu!
    Good work! *two thumbs up*
    A fav!!! :)

    wow. u did a good job of cleaning up and extracting e pic. i'm soo jealous of that firstly.
    misuzu really does have complicated hair XD
    and the background sort of matches her well, since she likes beach doesnt she?
    i especially love the sun there. nice job! (i'm still jealous)

    really really nicely done..everything made into perfection..addin it to my favourite..

  15. headaches4ever Jun 25, 2005

    that is really good~ I love the background! I think you did a great job, even with the having to cut out hair and such... 50 + layers in two hours is skill! way to go!

  16. Terra-chan Jun 25, 2005

    This is gorgeous LastDinosaur. Not only are you going to win the first contest but I think you're going to win this contest too! Looking at this makes me really want to enter now~ I don't care about first, but if I place it'd be cool!

  17. Electrastar Jun 26, 2005

    Sigh...I wish I could realistic walls like that ...I love the backround, just like the beach in the anime...the mountains looke a little weird, but it's still looks awsome.

  18. flyindreams Jul 05, 2005

    Nice job~! The water looks really nice... not sure about the waves, but overall it looks really nice. Good luck with the competition! ^.^

    i'd say that i wubb the setting of this wallie. the composition of the wallie ish nicely done. the extraction ish nicely done and everything fits in nicely. maybe what it lacks ish just a lil texture on the mountains. but that's just a minor stuff.

    the colors are chosen well. they match the scene nicely. looking long at this wallie, it somewhat gives you a sense of peaceful and serene picture. i'd say that everything ish portrayed very well.

    now the problem here ish that i can't seem to relate it to the theme, there's no darkness where there is light. to me, this wallie just portrays something peaceful and beauty. without the theme, it'd be a perfect wall.

    nonetheless, good work with it :)
