Thank goodness, I can finally get this wall here. AA is finally able to update +_+
Anyway, this wall was for the battle against puppychow16 in The Battlegrounds in AP.
To the wall...Well, I'll have to say this wall caused a lot of probs technically. Photoshop kept on lagging and it got to the point where zooming out takes 3 min to load. Perhaps it's the fact I never flatten my layers... bleh. Used a hell lot of stocks, but I blended it to make that 'smooth' effect. I actually had this idea in mind a while ago, but never got to executing it until I made the challenge. The water was totally CGed from scratch with references from multiple water stocks. The text is horribile because I couldn't edit it...=.=a It was just stuck there after I took away my text layer O_O I'll have to say the hardest part was getting the lighting well blended. I hope you like the feel this wall gives out...it's relaxing. Btw, this wall may appear to be a bit too green for some of you - it differs between monitors. =/

Thanks to all those that gave me tips ;D

I'm sure everyone is sick of there being pretty much only vectors getting highlighted nowadays. So here is something that we haven't seen in a while, a very well made scenic wallpaper with so much feeling to it... with a *non* vectored scan. I really love how it turned out, great job Highknees!

    This is the first Magna Carta: ToB wallpaper I have seen that completely captures the atmosphere of the game; ancient, magical and mysterious. Words don't do it justice, this is truly breathtaking. From the forest itself down to the beams of sunlight, it is just such a well executed vision. I envy your skill. ;)

    i like overall how this wallpaper is put together. however, realistically speaking, with the way you lighted things, the character and the water would be darker. O_o

    At last ... a non vectored wallpaper that's actually HIGHLIGHTED. MT is kind of slow at this loading though .. hurr ... Anyways on to the review.

    I love this lucious forest atmosphere, it's very tranquil in it's own way. Good use of stocks, and the lighting coming down from the sky through the trees is simply divine. In all respects we enjoy walking through forests with a peak of sunlight coming through onto us, creating such interesting shadows. It also happens to feature a male scan, I see it not gathering too much attention because of this ... Girl walls are so overrated, but it is hard to find nice males scans at the same time.

    The colours are dark, we have lots of rich greens from the trees and grass. A long with a lot of black and darker tones. Everything is very earthy and much to the colours of a deep forest.

    Good composition we see here, the character is not centered, and we have some grass close to our view. Some water, with rocks around, it's very realistic and full of life. Nice placement of objects and thought, also keeping in fact of what is close to us and not.

    Quality is pretty good, the rocks look a little too round at some parts, but nothing to be too picky about. The stocks aren't enlarged horribly like most tend to do. I enjoy the water effect too in the front, it's very neat. The scan is relatively good quality, and the hair extraction is perfect! Can't imagine how you managed it so wonderfully.

    I'm happy to say, this was not a waste of a download. Full view truly sparks the real image of this wallpaper, and the little detailing you put into this wall shows. Great work, and hope to see more from you. Thank you for sharing!

    This feels so nostalgic for some reason. The light filters through the forest beautifully... both the foreground and background are well thought out and done. Thank you...
