I've got nothing to do during last Friday so I went to surf the net. I was looking for some scans to wall since I haven't used Photoshop for weeks and I miss it so badly. I found this scan at www.celestial-star.net's gallery. When I first laid my eyes on it, my senses urged me to wall it!

The extracting process took me four whole hours, since I have to start all over again because I didn't save it by accident. The background - I meant the sky - is not made by brushes, but by duplicating the scan repetively and by smudging it. That took me 5 hours because I kept on experimenting. And because there was a sudden blackout in my house, I have to start all over again, which took me 3 hours (glad i already saved the extracted scan by that time). Toning the lighting of the scan took me about 2 hours just to make it turn out exactly what I wanted it to be. It me took a lot of time thinking about the concept of the design (research for some brushes at Deviantart), as well.

Overall, I probably made this for 20 (the other 9 hours are for the finishing touches) hours. I worked on this wall for three days and I'm very glad it's finally done.

I really love the end result. I hope you guys like it too, but I'm not forcing you or anything. Comments are highly appreciated (so I may know what you think). To all of those who would take there time to read this, comment, or download; thanks!

    I truely love Sumi Keiichi style and I think your background fits the deal with this CG.
    While on the background. Like what you did with it. Cool to see the parts of the CG here and there without it killing the wall.
    That sucks by the way on the blackout and all.
    Good work.

    I really like the colors in the background, it gives the piece a very decayed look which also makes it look very gloomy and slightly twisted (then again, I could just be wierd :P). I really likes this, +fav

    the one scary thing is that the dude has a gently boyish face and UBER DEFINED BICEPS o_O other than that its a nice wallpaper ^_^ i like the few black birds and creepy leafless trees as well as the color choice, they really add to the darkish mood. the words are ok. good job on fading the picture to black, as if theyre getting swallowed by darkness =] coolness
