After a hiatus from an internet connection I have returned. With a new wall no less.

Here we have Kino and Hermes from Kinos Journey. So the wall does not reflect the translation that we are familiar with for the title of the show. I was trying stuff out and did not expect it to look that neat, so you are going to have to deal. ;) Anyway...I had to rebuild the back end of Hermes. There was a lot of text. I did not vector (mostly because I was unfamiliar with the technique), so I did my own version of patching things up. Copying and pasting sections that had no text in conjunction with the heal brush. The knapsack looks a little funky, as does the back wheel, but over all I am very pleased with the end results. I am not quite sure where I got the source picture anymore, so I apologize to the people from whence this came, let me know and I will credit you for sure! The poem-esc saying is from the back of the North American Release of DVD #4 and I just liked it and thought it fit. Since it came from the back of the cover I should hope it fit the theme of the show, huh?
I really liked the fact that the two solitary (made from scratch) flowers on the hillside with the characters fit so well. The flowers themselves do not quite belonging on the hillside anymore than the travelers, but they are here just the same mirroring their counter parts, Kino and Hermes. And I know that there is no real light source here, but I was hoping to get away with a bright moon coming from the upper right behind the viewer (meaning you peeps). So please do not harp on me about that. So that is the story and I hope everyone enjoys! :)

    THe grass looks okay. I think you should add some shadows where the character is sitting.
    There are too many stars in the sky. I think you should make lessen the stars. :D
