Where did this come from? I'm not sure... After watching nothing but Miyazaki movies for like a week, I feel in love with Howl's Moving Castle. The movie's now one of my favorites, and Howl is now my bishie. XD So what better way to celebrate by making a wall?

This is very different from my other walls so far- instead of going for an 'artistic' look, playing around with styles, I wanted to make a wallpaper that just looked... nice. One that doesn't cause you too think too much, or try and figure out what it means. I wanted one that was great eye candy, but with a certain amount of meaning nonetheless. Here's the result- after hours of vectoring, using gradients, blurs, ect, it's finally done. The entire wall is based off of a screencap, down to the very positioning of the stars. Since the blue background looked a little plain, I gave it more depth by adding black on the edges, and some color to the background. The texture is from mayang.com, and was erased off of Howl a bit. Hope you like!

    *hums song - "Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, never let it fade away..." cringe - now that's gonna get stuck in my head. ;) *

    What you've got here is pretty nice. I really do like this scene from the movie, and I'm glad to see it here. I do think that Howl's features might be a tad too bright/washed out, I'd like to see a little more depth there. Maybe a little more texture erased from him as well. It just doesn't seem right. (Though I could have the movie screen too well ingrained into my head. ^_^' ) I do like your wallpaper and see the work you put into it. Great job.

    i love the contrast of the sparkles with the dark background...It reminds me of Sheherezade and the magic of one thousand nights! Great wall! It captures greatly the magical atmosphere of the anime!
