PLEASE FULL VIEW!

Hi everyone! I have a new, awesome Halloween wall! I really like how this came out. I found the scan here on MT. There was a copyright on the scan that said "August" so that is where I placed it. I hope that its right.

I got the idea for the background from the scan itself. In fact it looks very much like what I have created. I redrew the church on the side, and took the bats and crosses and little bit of fence you see from the scan. I vectored over them though. I added in trees since I thought it gave it a more spooky look. There was also a huge archway in the scan that looked cool in there but I tried to re-create it and failed miserably. XD So I just left it out. The sky is also a little bit different and so are the houses on the left. The windows on the church are supposed to be crooked, so don't tell me that they are :-P

Original scan is here if you want to compare:
Halloween by Georgie22300

This took me about 5 hours (the scan took forever to extract) and it has 25 layers.

This is also my contest entry for the Colorful Wallies Halloween contest

Happy Halloween and enjoy my wallpaper!

    I've got a wallpaper from another place a few days ago.... exact scan exact position as the one here....

    only difference is the words and a slight difference in the background (feels like the background used for both come from the same picture, just different spots

    Waaaah, so kawaii! I love how the trees and the houses are tilted to match the scans angle. So clever. And all the orangeness and witchyness...Hope you have a great halloween Kate-san ^_^.

    Fave from me ^_~.

    i like the pumpkin XD the bats add a nice touch to your wall expecially to your halloween theme :D you portrayed your theme well and the colour scheme suits the halloween theme you are portraying :) i like the composition of the background and overall nice wall ^^

    Whoa, look at the favourites shoot up. I wonder if this wall will break the 100-favourites barrier too ^_^ That would be a sight to see.

    The scan is cute ^_^ I especially like the witch hat XD The pumpkins and shadows of buildings are well done too. Thanks for sharing ^_^

    HI, it is cute :-) good luck with the contest ;-)

  13. Shinseiki Oct 24, 2006

    I love pumpkins and i love anime girls in it. I especially LOVE them together placed in a wallie.This wallie is fabulous.. every aspect of halloween (now wheres that candied apple?) could be seen in here... pumpkins , witches , bats , dead trees and the "sorting hat" ?

    Maybe it might just be me but one thing is, that I spotted that on her 2nd eye which is the one to the right seems to have an extra white spot just right beside her right eye.It seems to be a reflection to me or a snowflake(wait .. this is not a winter theme right?)?

    I suggest maybe you can fix it by enlarging it according to the girl's left eye(or just ignore me T.T ) .

    Other than that , this is perfect , one of the best Halloween theme anime wallie I've seen :D

    oh it's great seeing these Halloween walls. :) And what a cute scan you used. THe background looks nice and it's just so halloweenish. And well crookedness makes things more spookyish so it all matches well. Nice work!

  15. Spoo Oct 25, 2006

    Oh I love the fish-eye look of it! That is VERY Halloweenie! I think for an extra touch I would have given the jack-o-lantern a different face though, just something whimsical maybe, with one eye bigger than the other, and a squiggle mouth...I like to incorporate anime faces whenever I can ^_^ Great job, definately a fave.
