Finally another wall from me ^^ It is dedicated to RainofStars for his Birthday!

I didn't spend much time on my previous wall because of the rush for a contest so the sky didn't turn out good. So I decided to make another one where the sky was better. The water and the mountains were made in Terregan and the rest was made in photoshop. I also added a stock photo as a balcony fence thingy. I chose that stock photo because I really liked the flowery design between the pillar and the horizontal part of the balcony. I also added colour and texture to make the balcony fence have a texture almost like marble.

EDIT: The bridge-like thing is NOT a bridge. It's the fence for a balcony that the girl is standing on. Nobody bothers to read this anyways so I'll stop typing now...

Wallpaper info:
Time spent: 20+ hours over the span of 6 weeks
Layers:80+ visible layers, 100+ including invisible layers
Music: Heaven - Ayumi Hamasaki (the music is on my userpage if anyone wants to hear it)
Inspired by EnchantressintheDark's wall:

In memory of Karen Tse
Oct 1955~Oct 2005

EDIT: April 11,2006
I followed some of the suggestions that were left in the comments and changed some things around. Some of the things I changed were:
-re-extracted the girl
-changed the text a little(removed brackets)
-added perspective to the balcony railing and mountain
-adjusted space background to fit better with the character

  7. chau-chan Nov 29, 2005

    That's very nice work. I really love how you made the effects in teh background and the color scheme of green. You put a lot of work into this wallpaper so it looks very good. Great work!

  8. ProjectZero Nov 29, 2005

    absolutely beautiful. The spiraling type of effect in the bg works well. Neon Green is a nice touch. Now only if it was slightly bigger in resolution... ^_^

  9. phamthuha Nov 29, 2005

    How cute! I can see that you are improving fast and you make such an beautiful wall like this ^_^ But i just don't like the green tone here.... what about something warmer? Okay, still you take from me a fav ^_^

  10. glassheart Nov 29, 2005

    This is truly an exquisite piece >.<! I love how all of the colours retain a variety, yet are under the same shade of green. I love the layout of this wallie! The design is very well thought out. I absolutely adore the text that you had put in. It fits perfectly! This is a very rare, beautiful piece deserving of high appraisal ^_^. This is your best work yet!

  11. kyubinaruto Nov 29, 2005

    It's beautiful, my friend *___* You're improving really fast fast fast!
    One thing I would like to complain is the bridge XP It's too flat. Lower the bridge a little as well, around 10 pixels shoud do, it would fit the character nicely then =)

  12. enchantressinthedark Nov 29, 2005

    *squeals excitedly* Kyaaahh! Finally another wallpaper from you! *jumps around* Whoa, this ish your best wallpaper yet! Hey, when you said before december, you didn't have to submit it on the second last day of November? This ish very beautiful! BUt I don't get why the sky is green. Maybe purple or blue?

    Wow, my Stellar wallpaper inspired you? Hohohoho...me ish very happy XD

    Its so cool you can create nice backgrounds with Terragen. I have it, but I'm still stuck :(....I don't know how to start...Can you help me? If its okay with you ^^

    Overall, this ish a nice wallpaper! Keep up the good work and can't wait to see more! ^^

  14. Osirisa Nov 29, 2005

  16. iarly Nov 29, 2005

    It's beautiful, really. Maybe it's because I love green, but I think the background is awesome! +fav

  17. Milkiyo Nov 29, 2005

    really beautiful..it looks a bit jagged but I guess that's my imagination lol..looks better than the other one with the same scan I saw
    +fav^^

  18. Devildude Nov 29, 2005

    amazing piece of work.
    loved how you remodeled the stock photo to make such anime patterns of the bridge rail.
    massively overdone effects on the planets and stuff but beautifully done so that it doesn't stand out too much in compare to the simplicity of the girl.
    loved the little green sakura petals that lightly float naturally across the wall. wonderful.
    you have rendered the color very nicely and yes, i love it so.
    +fav!

    Really nice combination with this. A little abstractish sky and stock somehow well together. A bit shiny for my taste; also there are slight blending problems with the mountains on the back and the chara. They look like copy paste job because of the jaggy edges...blurring the edges might help maybe.
    But nice job overall =)

  20. AngelKate Nov 29, 2005

    Whoa, that's awesome! I love the sky! The colors and little details are awesome! The use of terragen and stock blend well with the background, and nice job of extraction too. Great work!

  21. Kiako Nov 29, 2005

    great wallpaper,
    i like the effects and the green color. the chara fits well onto the background.
    keep it up

  22. ptptn Nov 29, 2005

    Beautiful wall, but one question: why did you name it 'Entropy'?

  23. Totorito Nov 29, 2005

    Great background and colors, they are two things important to me in a good wallpapers :D

  24. Acuni Nov 29, 2005

    only the dream sign is disturbin but i like all the effects at the back and all the planets look great to but i miss something and that is some empty space
