Artist Comment

This wall happened on a stroke of inspiration, or something like that. I have loved this image for a long time, and suddenly had the idea of having her floating/falling through the sky like in a dream. Here's the details:

1600x1200, 150dpi

Image: I vectored the girl from the artbook scan, source = MiniTokyo.net.
The bg is stock, source = Stock Xchng (http://sxc.hu/) heavily edited by me through painting and smudging.

The rest: This wall has a ton of color adjustments, cloud overlays and one texture that is from DA! Desktop Anime (http://www.desktopanime.com).

There are also two more versions. I couldn't decide whether I wanted the wall to be less or more saturated, so I compromised. The version that I submitted here is the \"in-the-middle\" version.

If you want one more saturated, click here: http://transluscent.net/wallpaper/kino2.jpg

If you want one less saturated and more cloudy, click here: http://transluscent.net/wallpaper/kino1.jpg

If you want one in the middle, click the one I submitted here.

Comments are always appreciated and welcome.

    The vectors are clean. It's certainly a plus factor that you did cloud overlays and stuff to it. The clouds look realistic. It must have taken you a lot of time.

    As much as I like your concept, the placing of the girl in a cloud without even bending a little seems awkward. All your colors have a very light earthish tone so the darkness of some parts of her earring is distracting.

    Overall, this wall generates Nimya's character well. I like it. Good job.

    This is a really nice vector. The Kino no Tobai images really are excellent art. I like how you made her falling out of the sky

    I like the floating aspect of this wallpaper as well. Good use monochromatic yet different colors. Good job!1

    I'm not into this series but like this picture very much. Looks like she is sleeping on a cloud. A very calming and peaceful wallpaper.

    Very pretty. The girl seems to be set on top of the clouds, rather than among them, which makes this work very well.
