Amids the speedy traffic and my brisk stride,
I couldn't help but to pause and turn.
There a figure, my eyes cast
Can it be? Is it she? Am I sure?
As human traffic continued its flow.
My beauty. My angel.
Will there be another moment that will we meet?

I should get myself shot, and run over by a truck for using _just_ heavily modified stock for a wallpaper contest entry. Oh well, I got attached to the scan and wallpaper concept to force myself change it, My collection needed a dark wall anyway (*cough*excuses*cough*).

The contest was themed as 'Moment' and a traffic blurred idea came to me while I was staring outside the window for inspiration. Since using stock photos usually is hell if you were trying to fit it to a drawing style, you COULD say it took me a little effort (2 days of pondering what I should do next to be exact).

And I extracted the scan just fine. Its just the contrasting styles that makes her hair looks like its made outta cardboard >_>

    I like the concept of it and the whole thing goes pretty well- the only thing that's a bit niggly is the transparency of the girl. It makes the character harder to focus on. One solution is perhaps hitting control L and changing the lighting, or using the lighting effects render. That way you can darknen the scan and still keep it up at 100% opacity or transparency or whatever it's called. Extraction is pretty good though the hair still has a few (unnoticeable) bumps- because of the dark nature of the wall you could have also thought about colour burning the edges to also help the scan blend into the darkness.

    Great concept, good work :D Kudos for you!

    I like the wallpaper, but it has kind of a dark tone that the background has.
