Hi :pacman:

Came across with this scan one day...and wanted to make it in a wall.....so i made them move away from the pool...and to the field...haha
had to clean the scan up a bit..and change the color tone in some parts...
the sky is a stock photo i got from sxc
a bit of brush works...little texture..and here it is.

i love the phrase:
\"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light\" by Helen Keller.

so.i hope u enjoy this wall, my friends

edit: fixed up the hair a bit, & soften the edges ^_^', thx for all the comments~

oops...almost forgot to plug

    Wow gives me that certain feeling of loveliness and care, since its all about friendship but my only nipping side of this wall is that the hair extraction looks jagged, you should have outline it with a pentool and the whole wall will come togehter beautifully.... nice text and Great job as always! :P

    i luv your concept here about friendship, and the composition is very lovely!
    you did a wonderful job in integrating the stock photo of the sky with the rest of the wall because they all blend together so seamlessly.
    i also luv your field because it reminds me of a painting.
    the scan was a perfect choice, but it doesn't blend too well with your background because it "sticks out" too much, i think. maybe gaussian blur would help?
    overall, fantastic wallie with a great concept! :D

    Good work! Great job with the background colours. Also the text suits the wall perfectly.
    In 3 words: melancholy, peaceful and calm.

  7. Milkiyo Nov 03, 2005

    gives a very warm and happy feeling....
    so touched^^ +favs...

    A nice and maybe awesome wall. The background is excellent. the characters suit the background thanks to your effects/brushes applied. The ONLY thing that this one will remain just under the line PERFECT is the character extration: looking at the hair etc, I see it's pixelised, to much pixelised. Hell. Anyway, a fantastic one. ^^

  9. tareren Nov 03, 2005

    Nice job on this one :D
    I like the scan, and I like the concept too :)
    But am thinking maybe you should texture the scan, cos it really looks different to the background...
    BG is really well done here :)
    Good job ^_^

    nice wallpaper,
    the background is very nice and it fits to the charas.
    it also has a good atmosphere.
    keep it up

  11. kai81220 Nov 03, 2005

    aww its nice ayaki ^___^

    i like the subdued tones you used for the wall cause it looks almost like an era passed.
    but i agree with OA, do a quick trace outline and itll be awesome cause the scan is a bit pixelly at the edges.

    even though nice stuff ^____^

  12. phamthuha Nov 03, 2005

    WOA! Is that really handmade? I can't believe my eyes O_O You really are the best waller i have ever known >_< I will *faves+* it!

  13. Zoamel Nov 03, 2005

    This is a fantastic work. The sky is looking great and so real. I can nearly feel the changing of weather. I also like the fields and the horizont with the few trees. A new fav for me ;)

  14. TrinityLi Nov 03, 2005

    The title is perfect for this wall. It looks like two best friends spending time together. I like this background much better than the pool. You did a great job with the background and I really like that text on the wall. Great job!

  15. jocelyn08 Nov 03, 2005

    this wallie is fantastic..the colour scheme brings out the atmosphere well xD
    and..i'm very suprised that you plug on my wallie..
    thank you very much! *huggies*~

  16. iarly Nov 03, 2005

    I like the way you composed this one... it looks very calm and it gives me a peaceful feeling. Very nice indeed.

  17. larch Nov 03, 2005

    Niffty :P

  18. MasterPivot Nov 03, 2005

    Very nice atmosphere. The color and lighting works great and the overall image is wonderful.
    On a nitpicky side, though, the girls' outer edges look a tad too hard compared to the rest of the wallpaper.

  19. bluSake Retired Moderator Nov 04, 2005

    Nice: soft, idyllic, pastoral, it looks like a painting. The rows of flowers especially remind me of an impressionist painting. Hm...the girl on the left's free hand looks sort of strange ::like it should be resting on something:: but I see that it's sort of free-floating in the scan too so...

  20. Yina Nov 04, 2005

    That's friendship.. ;__; the bg fits perfectly to the scan.. and the atmosphere is great.. <3 love the way how you worked on the stock images.. and the text is amazing.. *__* +fav =3

  21. julioc Nov 04, 2005

    the wallpapers is awesome, you capture the scan very well in this one

  22. rocknroll-isgo Nov 05, 2005

    There's still a couple of rough edges, but they're not too bad. Maybe redrawing a small but solid border around the whole scan would have helped but--- too much of a pain. XD
    I've always admired the way you make your foliage; beautifully done as always. One of these days I'm gonna have to get you to show me how to do that. ;)
    Everything looks great!

  23. chingetscook Nov 06, 2005

    Excellent background, oddly reminds me of the old Wizard of Oz movie with the fields in the background and old photograph feel to it. Overall great theme. Added this one to my favorites.

  24. pegassuss Nov 06, 2005

    wooow so niceee *.* I love it! ^^ I really like the concept. This wallie gives a warm feeling and such a caring atmosphere.. I love it. The scan is really nice and it match that sentece very well. Btw, I love that phrase of Hellen Keller >_< the background is really very beautiful. And everything blends very well. I think you did a great job! ^^
