please fullview...the thumbnail looks like crap x_x

this wallpaper took me...a really long time.
why you ask?
well, originally that image of sora was an in-game screenshot that i took and completely repainted.

this is the screenshot i used u_u

the worst part was i was working on it, and my tablet died...so i had to wait until i could get a new one..(THANK YOU EVOLS FOR GETTING ME A NEW TABLET! ;-;)
so, this whole thing was done from scratch, with a tablet. i started by repainting sora, then worked on extending the foot and keyblade a bit while adding some of the motion effects, and adding major highlights. added a light source, refined the lighting on sora, added the fog, added more fog, then added the sparkles and pretty thingies, then i hate tate and evol critique it, then went back and altered some stuff, then they critiqued it again, and if ixed some more stuff, and then, the final critique, where they said they loved it. and all was right with the world.

So, for my thanks...Thanks sooo much to evol, tate and red for being brutally honest (and red for sucking up) and to blaze whom i showed in the beginning, and has disappeared since, the lil bastard.

I've been insanly busy, so walls will be few and far between, but i promise the ones i DO make will be worth the wait (for the first time in a long time). Time for me to live up to the standards people seem to hold me to :P

    Wow. @_@ What a lot of work you put into this! It really shows, this is a very nice looking wall. Great job in getting a motion swing effect of the keyblade to look convincing, and not phony. :) My only real thought that about an aspect which I think could be improved upon, would be the lighting directly affecting Sora. His clothes look a tad too washed out by the strength of the light source for me. How the composition is it makes me think that the light is dimmer down where Sora is when compared to the above light source. (Like he's fallen down a hole into a lightless room.) It's like he's closer to the source than my brain perceives that he is. I think that if his colors were a little deeper/richer then Sora would be more in the dark and fit the lighting set up. One other itty-bitty thing: the title is just gracing his fingers. It just looks a little odd - maybe move the title down slightly. Back to the good stuff! :) Great job on coloring, shading, and adding all the little sparkle effects. I am impressed by the fog! It's so subtle that you miss it when you first look at the wall, and that's what makes it so great. What an amount of effort you put into this! Kudos, and thank you for the awesome efffort and finished product!

    Kalico-pun Kalico-pun Kalico-pun, I've been waiting for this new wall of yors! Oh my gosh, you RE-PAINTED it?! Amazing, it looks soo real. You did an amazing job painting the hair, also the clothes. I can't even paint a simgle thing!O.O The stardust, the fog, & all of the bg looks simple, but for me it's hard & took a very long time to do it^.^ Very magical & dusty, but dusty in a good way. The lighting, glowing, is all perfect! I also lone the font, it very matches with the magical glowy things! O.O Amazing job blending all he things together, Kalico-pun! I'll definately add this to my favs! Keep up the awsome work!

    wow, this is really impressive, the repainting is extreamly well done. your lighting works very in the wallpaper, however purhaps consider moving the text down a tad, as i think it looks slightly off as is overlaps his hand

  6. ayaki Apr 21, 2006

    This reminds me of the boss I am stuck on right now... Damn that game.

    Ah well, you did a pretty good job of repainting that screen shot. I love where the text is positioned and Sora is in an awesome pose in that screen. This is a great wallpaper, Kalico.. keep up the good work.

  14. yueki Apr 22, 2006

    This is so gorgeous! Simple yet very powerful. Very creative and effective use of the image and then to paint it over to get that crisp look, gosh, I would have never thought of that. I love the pose too, it's so silently dramatic. X3

  15. tareren Apr 22, 2006

    i must say this is sooooo awesome.. playing the game rite now, and I must say you did a great job on this one ^^ choose a nice pose as well :) his left leg (the part where the light shines on) looks a bit wavy .. er.. like it is supposed to be straight but its not.. so hard to explain x_x yea,it looks like it was drawn a bit incorrectly.. but this is a good wall, love it and a fave for sure ;)
