A December Wall in my favorite colors of Blue and White. :) I dont remember where I got the Girl from, but she did not come with wings. The wings came from another stock pic.

I altered both the girl, the greens in her dress had to go as well as the wings. As for the background, I did not initially want to put in anything, wanted to leave it white, because somehow that emptiness appealed to me. But then, I felt it to be too empty..so..I had to put in clouds using brushes :nya: The clouds are blue against a white sky! ..to keep with the surreality i wanted to get...Then I put in blue grass and my favorite Saturn-ian rings! :D

Now ..no wing is complete without the "scattered feathers" effect! but that was such a tiresome thing! >.< Every feather had to be done in a diff color..diff opacity..And on a diff Layer! so i could Rotate them at diff angles! OX but then came the fun part! Sparkles! even they needed real patience..but they were much more fun! I made those silken cloth or whatever you might wanna call them...and put them down towards her feet..to give a mystique/flowy effect.

The idea was of a lonesome wanderer in a surreal world.. The emptiness to emphasize the "lonesomeness" and blue clouds /grass for an other-worldly effect. The wings, the cloth and Rings for an Angelic Aura, but she is not pure angel because she is an archer. Maybe a Warrior? :o now I tried a lot of things.. but I dont know how much i actually have achieved. so people,.. please go ahead and give me some valuable suggestions for improvement. :)

    i like the colour scheme of your wall :D im not a big fan of the border ^_^' the wings look nice however the colour doesnt seem to suit her very well [hope i didnt offend you ^_^'] the sparkles add a nice touch and i like how you did the feathers and how they all seem scattered in a way XD nice wall ^^

    wo wo wo,
    cool stuff girl,
    man, you have some talent, :)
    i love the background effects you used
    the wing is however a bit purplish, but great
    also the bottom 3d line don't fit well,
    but overall, it's a great wall
