I'm tired.

Not much to say... the 12th was my birthday but January so far has been a bitch. Been working overtime... if I'm lucky I get off at 7pm, if I'm not I get off around 10pm, so I worked on this in whatever little waking hour I had to keep from going insane. It's mostly me experimenting with stuff like patterns, cropping, colors. Had to scrap 3 or 4 different background concepts before I hit on something that looks semi-decent, so overall this wall failed pretty hard... but I'm sick of working on it and really want to move on to other stuff, so here it is.

Yukari vectored from this scan, butterfly from this scan, background pattern from stuntkid.com and plaid pattern from devART.

Showed a few people this and that variation of this wall, but gotta thank tat0es and gids for the continual support.

Additional res available @ pixel ellipsis, as always. The new layout was uploaded a while back but if you haven't checked it out yet, definitely give a look and tell us what you think. My online activity has obviously decreased in the last couple of weeks and will stay that way until late January/early February, when I'll hopefully get my life back, but all comments/criticism are appreciated and will get read sooner or later.

    for me she's a little too red but bg and butterfly accent makes good job distracting eyes from that. good one. I recognize Your style.

    Clean and precise like always, ne? Ohh, 12th was your birthday? Congratulations then, mine was on 1th *nyah, nyah*!
    This wallie is a little bit too dark for my taste, since I'm having some kind of bright and happy colours season :P But this definitely looks like what'd be expected from you to make, in other words it's good :)

    Mmm...red. I like the plaid dress especially too. Thanks too for the generous amount of space you put on the left too. I need space for icons...:D But I do like the vector too. Clean and simple.

    Happy belated birthday :x
    I dunno why, but i totally love the colors you used, they look pretty cool
    The vector is really stylish <3
    Keep it up

    lol. Just looked over this at AP! ^^ Nice work. I like your style with the sloppy vectoring lines, and stuff, supper nice! :D I also like the smiplicity of the wall its self, very nicely done ! :) Favs! Good Luck!

    I'm going to paste what I already told you at IN, cuz hum.....I wanna comment in the first page of this and I'm to lazy to think all over
    the colors are great, the patterns are outstanding and specially the ones on her dress look awesome....however I supposed it was intentional to move the outline layer to make it look kind of a messy vector? (am I right?) but in this case if the main thing here (the patterns) dont fit, the classy, clean, fashion look, gets ruined. well is actually not a big deal, since the wall rocks anyway

  8. eternallegend Jan 14, 2007

    i like the simple look of the background and how everything fits together well :D the colour scheme is nice and i like the nice design of your wall :) the butterfly adds a nice touch and the vector is nicely done :D nice wall ^^

    The first thing I thought when I saw this wallpaper in fullview was, "Wooa, that's hot!" XD I like it, beauty is writen all over the designs and the vector. :D This is definitely a great wallpaper. Sorry to hear that things aren't going your way, but happy belative birthday. Hope things can change for the best and great job with this wallpaper. :)

    Thick and sloppy vector lines, LOVE.

    By the name of the title, I knew right away this has something to do with Paradise Kiss. Anyway, it's really been somewhile since I last saw you around. But now that I see you online, you should take some rest while you're around MT. ^^

    I love the overall of the wallpaper, spacey left side, colours that matches, thick vectors lines and covered characters. They just look good. But I don't really like that butterfly in the dialog balloon. Maybe it's the blue colour or the thin outline. But putting that aside, it's really good. This wall defines the beauty of the dress well. ^^

    tsh, and you say you don't get any comments on MT? ;)

  12. ayaki Jan 15, 2007

    work until 10pm?~? that's just insane!
    btw, happy birthday ^____^
    I like the scribble style...and I'd love this wall to be in red only...with different shades....
    dunno..this is what came to my mind while looking at it ^^

  13. IzumiChan Jan 16, 2007

    I like eye-cutting wallpapers. XD
    Loved the colors, and the detail of the butterfly is just so cute! XD
    I'm not certain about the wave in the back... maybe it should be higher? O.o
    Either way, a great job, I loved it~ :D

  14. raindropmemory Jan 17, 2007

    Hey! Those color is simply matching! Harmony can be seen through out the wallpaper! Great! Loved it!~

  15. bluSake Retired Moderator Jan 17, 2007

    & it is gorgeous XD Like the sketchy style of the vector. May have been interesting to see more textures, but the clean look is nice as it is.

  16. euna Retired Moderator Jan 17, 2007

    Funky wallpaper flyin. It's a lovely vector work coupled with great colour choices. The pattern work adds a nice touch to the wall, and it looks lovely overall <3

    PS - sorry i missed your bday. Why didn't you blog it with big CAPS? lol "happy belated birthday!" =D

  17. Chloe Retired Moderator Jan 18, 2007

    Great use of color and patterns and the vector is really neat. Excellent job!

  18. Revan Retired Moderator Jan 18, 2007

    What is there to add about this... it's unbelievable!

    It's indeed a great moment when one comes up with such nice displays of creativity and a flawless sense of aesthetic.

    aaargh! m... must... must fav and set as desktop!

  19. enchantment Jan 19, 2007

    wow, the vectoring is really nicely done and i love the idea and the concept :D i love the colouring and the background is nice and simple :) nice wall~^^

  20. MissyG Jan 19, 2007

    I disagree with you, the wall did not fail >.< But yeah, I don't make wallies myself and maybe I'm not all that artistic, but I really like this one, and I think you should be proud of it :3 I haven't seen that scan myself... I like it and you made it look good too. Butterfly fits too :D Meh, anyway, your work was worth it and I hope you can get some sleep.
    *adds as a favourite*
