This is my entry for UA's CUTE contest/ theme!

Read New BBcode for more info about the new sexy BBcodes for gallery items ;)

Inspiration for this eh. I was gonna use Otohiko Takano but then I was like (u_u)zzZZzz and went through my pictures folders again and found this. I really liked the birds and the concept. Just I didn't have an idea for a background. But I suppose all that painting came to the rescue and I eventually got this.

I might submit a series of these Wakaba items. If I get brainwaves that is. This one came pretty naturally. Yay! \o/

    Wow, this wallpaper is moving! I love the drop of color. It's such an interesting idea! The bg is simple but it fts well with the scan. On the whole this gives an impression as if it was painted with a bamboo paintbrush... Fantastic job!

    the warm colors called my attention and now I have to say that the whole piece in full view is pretty damn cool, you were precise puting as a bg the road, in sorta way gives an eternity, fantasy kind of feeling, well that helps the character, all is just as is supposed to be but have one tiny question what's up with the huge sign? lol

    finally Wakaba has been walled. that's one of the things i love about you most, lady misa - not only do you wall extremely well but you always take the most difficult artists as inspiration, imo.

    like Shunpei and now Wakaba etc. i love how you got rid of the predominately green bg and made the green leaves/petals transparent there. the clouds give the atmosphere a very other-worldy presence as well.

    simply a beautiful wall. note: it's a shame that MT doesn't allow b& w scans as Wakaba is in her element when she uses mostly b&w with a very liberal dash of color.

    + favs

    Definitely spells original. It's very intriguing and somehow mkaes me feel so relaxed. The soft palette presentation makes it look so dreamy, it's just wonderful. Truly magnificent.

    Looking at your wall makes me feel the urge to wall another Jay Chou's song. >.<

    FINALLY I get to comment on this wallpaper. I tried a couple days ago to full view (not that it needs to be seen in full view) but everything was downloading extremely slow. It is truly a beautiful design. It

    Wow... Misa's got a bunch of ideas nowadays. Even though the whole wall's kind of simple, the details given for representation absolutely rocks!

    Seeing this on the thumbnail view is already relaxing... what more if I see this on full view? XD

    This is such a beautiful wallpaper. The soft colors makes me feel so fuzzy and warm inside. ^^ How you created the smooth road and clouds is just plain wonderful. This is definitely cute. Really love it. :)

    What a beautiful piece Misa-dono! Well done! I love it, what else can I say? :D

  12. Regenbogen Dec 26, 2006

    Sorry Misa, I haven't been around here to much lately... that's why I'm only looking at your wallpaper now. At the moment I'm in Germany with my parents. It's so boring, I should find some time to come around more often. I love this wallpaper, beautiful work as usual from you, Misa.

    Definitely unusual in a good sense - unique design with the flowers dominating the whole piece. Love the glowing edges, they look blurry and soft, also the colours are very warm and inviting.

    The flying-fish/birds are quite interesting; and the bg suits the image very well. :)

    Very beautiful! The clouds, the flowers... I liked the surreal atmosphere of the wall. Perfect. :)
