The background itself is simply a stock photo that I have used from stock.xchng. However, the original seemed far too real for an anime wallpaper, so I used a blur technique, and a few blending options to retract some of the realism, while maintaining some believability and quality. The first version of the wall had a bright lens flare behind the Gundam which I intended to be the Sun, but it caused a harsh grain on the background, so I had to remove it. Thanks to the Session Zero member for pointing that out to me.

The Gundam gave me the most trouble for this wallpaper. It was rendered fairly well, but when I blended it with duplication and gaussian blur, it caused a purple outline around the character which took quite some time to remove again. Overall, I think it came out pretty nicely.

Finally, the text. The first version of the wallpaper used Impact font, but after some critique, it was changed. Also, the layers were duplicated and then a gaussian blur was added to the bottom layer in order to make it look as it does now. Choosing a colour also proved to be difficult, as I needed to find one that was suitable, between light purple, and blue. I am pretty satisfied with the outcome.
