Artist Comment

Hello everyone! *big waves and hugs*

It has been such a long long time since I have submitted a wallpaper (4 months-I believe).
As many of you already know, I have been busy. But I am glad to be back and miss everyone here. Thank you all for your encouraging comments in my guestbook.

I rarely dedicate a wall because I just have many friends here and it is hard to dedicate a wall to one person without considering or hurting the feelings of another. So I would like to just simply dedicate this wall to all here as a gift from me missing everyone and thanking for the much encouragement.

About the Wall

I simply feel in love with the picture and wanted an enchanting floral garden.
Though it was annoying >_<
The backdrop is composed of course from the flowers from the original scan, but placing and extracting each section and certain aspects of the sections was quite a bit of work.
The peacock was made by me with just using one of the 'eyes' of the feathers from the girl's dress.
Since we are drawn to her pretty eyes and to the eyes of the peacock, I thought it would be mysterious to the garden to have an eye watching over the garden and representing the beauty of it.

I must thank a wonderful, sweet guy--though I don't think he realized that-for helping me out with coming up with the title for the wall. I wanted something to sound unique and exotic and he is well-versed in many languages. And so he helped and developed the title--"Hesperides" being of the nymphs over the blossoming garden. Thank you dear Iscalio.

Thanks to Dream, I found out who the artist is, but sadly I can't get back to change it. I hope one of the mods could. But here is the scan. Thanks Dream ^^

    Hello my dear!

    It's nice to see that you're walling again. Things have been pretty dull lately.

    I really like the color use for this one! I'm really into bright, vibrant colors, and that's exactly what you used. I knew it would look even more amazing in full quality. That's some pretty amazing work.

    This is going up on my desktop right away. As I said before, you are very talented!
