First things first: Original scan submitted by Devildude who said it right: this is such a beautiful scan. Though those lines going across killed my eyes, so I vectored it.

Anywho, not much to say. I started this such a looong time ago, I think I was experiencing a walling block when I was working on this, that's why I haven't submitted it till now.
Basically, the whole wall is vectored, 'cept for the birds (those are brushes). Don't ask me where her other foot is, 'cause I've no clue x_x It's not even on the original.

Time: Dunno. The vector was long though, that much I remember.
Layers: 18
Texture from DA! as always.

Comments welcome!

Edit #1: Fixed the huge butterfly! Wow, it really was too big... Thanks, Fran!
Edit #2: Made the text a bit stronger and I've got a textless version over here!

This wallpaper spells out the title, "Serenity" very clearly. It uses soft, dreamy colours that brings out the calmness present in the wallpaper. Vectoring has been beautifully done with just the right amount of blur to soften up the image. A very well composed wallpaper. Well done Chloe-chan. Keep it up!

    A flawless vector with a soothing choice of colours - just wish the text was more visible or there was no text at all.
    A great work that is going to be my new desktop :) .

    This is beautiful. It leaves me feeling both speechless & like I wan to rant about how beautiful it is at the same time.

    The complete lack of any outlines creates a real sense of freedom, which matches the whole setting of this beautiful work of art. Then there's the intense rainbow of colour. Normally I avoid pink like the plague, but the gentle treatment of the colour, and the diversity of it actually draws me towards it! It's just incredible... and amost counjours up the scent of heavy spring blossom just from looking at it.
