First things first:

If you would like to improve your wallpaper skills and join in fortnightly competitions where judges WILL evaluate your work (and it's fun), head down to http://members.mpx.com.au/ayacigar/coordlegion.gifThere are tutorials written by us, and we listen to our group members. We never ignore their requests. So join us today! ^-^

((History lesson)) A few weeks ago I got a photo of Shibuya, taken by my friend while she was there. I loved the photo... >.< Anyways, I was browsing through the gallery section and I found this wonderful scan by Nuriko EDIT: Thanks to wanna who found the link to the scan ^_^ here.
I saw the scan and literally went "ahhh !" The photo and scan just clicked... that, my friends, was the birth of a new wallie :)
((What I did)) I didn't do every single detail, but I wanted a really clean kinda wall. The big building was actually a round building... (yeah, round faced O_O well, on the side anyway) and it took a lifetime trying to redo and vector the thing -_- I wanted to get some crack brushes but I couldn't get them, so I resorted to lightning X_X But anyway, the rest is clean... cept for the bridge thingy-- my brushing was like "attack! attack!"
By the way, the streaks in her hair were done by me ;) Her hair was originally just grey
((Comments)) None in particular. I love the wall... it's so bright (and I had my Kenshin one as a desktop for like a month X_X) and just simple. It was a lot of hard work, but my friend really wanted to see the finished copy so I decided to finish it so I could show it to him >.<

You probably realised I haven't submitted anything of good substance lately... with the Under-A competitions and themes *insert chuckle* my style has completely gone whack. Definitely one of the better walls (I feel) I'll upload....

Comments deeply, and forever appreiciated :D

PS: She is a robot head
EDIT: shadow and lighting Thanks to tevi and my friend Tracy... but she ain't on mT >.<

    nicely done wallpaper there...i like the background and the char blend in totally together..addin to my fav.

  8. Raiyne Jun 27, 2005

    Kewl wallie! :D I love the city background and the choice of character. The grey surroundings suit the character's expression, maybe in search of something? Just my thoughts. Good job. :)

    For some reason, I didn't really expect such a wicked wall from you. I didn't check out your gallery or anything, and I will now, and I'm sorry if you're offended but... wow, this is really awesome!

    What really made me pleased to see this wall was the fact that the scan blends in with the background so well. Everything looks more real, and less cartoon-like.

    It's great to see you inspired by just a "click" which makes me excited to see your other submissions. Really well done!

    Very nice and kool wallpaper u got there. The person really blends in with the background. Good job.


  11. drell Jun 27, 2005

    Bg is cool and the thumbnail is really good looking...in the big version the building looks a bit fishy ( the sides are not very good quality ). The scan is perfect. One detail i don't like, that the building is starbucks ( was it too in the original photo? ).

    Anyways , nice wall and i'm going to give you a fav but it needs a few touch ups XD.

  12. flyindreams Jun 27, 2005

    I'm not sure I like the scan... something about her eyes maybe, but I really love the background of Shibuya!! The work that you've done over the photo is amazing. Yea for Japanese backgrounds!! Very, very nice job!

  13. redblitzkrieg Jun 28, 2005

    Simple and nice color consistency.. good for a gray color themed desktop.

  14. angelrhea Jun 28, 2005

    gee this one is pretty realistic. i like the angle and the bg as well as the uniqueness of the character. i wonder what are those in the head. would you care to explain it. my apologie, i dont know it. very nice, well done.

  15. Akaiken Jun 28, 2005

    My cutie little witch does it again! ^_^

    Very cute Kuri! And that, that's CooL!

  16. LastDinosaur Jun 28, 2005

    Wow this is one of the best walls ive seen by you, its truely amazing.. btw i love walls with citys, and what u did with this photo was amazing, and the scan fits in soo well. I simplely love it, the angle, the light color scheme, the smooth details.. You did a great job on this wall.

  17. kilcun Jun 28, 2005

    my first impression when i saw this was "this looks really nice." I like the background. the wall gives a nice feel to the overall picture. the streaks you made in the hair make the robot head stuff fit nicely. great job!

  18. ayane-heine Jun 28, 2005

  23. BossMac Jun 28, 2005

    There are gaps on the both sides of my monitor!!!

    Well that's okay.... it doesn't really bother me none.

    I know you're only kidding when you say "comments and suggestions are appreciated" so I'm sticking to the positive stuff...

    Yeah, the scenery is nice but....
    The color selection is also easy on the eyes yet...
    The idea is great though...

    Plus, I've told you that I'll help you didn't I so here's step 1.
