Well, here's my new work. I really don't feel like saying much. I will explain the process a bit, though.

First I extracted the scan. When I saw the girl and the penguin together I knew right away what I wanted to do. I liked the plan I had for it. Unfortunately, like all of my wallpapers, I don't do what I plan to. Well, this time, not exactly as I planned. But, I did do the house which was part of that plan. The wood grain was quite interesting to make this time around. I saw a few pictures of wood grain that other artists did. I also took into account the things that two MT members said about my works and stuff. Well, that was my drive to create a wood grain and texture that looked more real. It might not have taken my much time to do what I wanted to do but, that doesn't mean it's not effective. I think it means I know how to do what I want. The process might not deserve much acknowledgement though. It was all custom made--except for the scan, of course. After I made the floor I started on the wall of the house. I knew that siding isn't always completely flat so I made the edges appear jagged so as to show the angles. The toughest part was making the bannisters. I don't think the banister looks all that well. I tried though. Maybe I'll improve. The landscape is what was different than what I had originally planned. I wanted to work days on it making plants and shrubs, rocks and roads. That changed because I realized that a penquin doesn't live in the warmth unless he is PenPen from Neon Genesis Evangelion. So, I made a colder climate... or environment. Clouds are clouds. Water is water. Anyway, I think some might prefer a different scene that has "FOCUS" on a particular part. Well, too bad. Not all perspectives have that perfect preferred "focal point." Lets get real here. I create what I can in appreciation of reality. Not by preference of over used terms and styles. HEH. Well, that's about it. Enjoy... maybe.

    Great use of my Range Murata scan! This is why I scan, I don't have the time, patience, or (more importantly) the talent to creat walls like this. ^_^ Thanks for the work!

    nice job with the background and perspective :) I like how you did the house and textures, and the snow's nice too, though shouldn't there be a path of footprints or something from the penguin? (or did he burrow under the snow?) The scan looks a bit flat compared to the background though...

    This is too damn cute, I mean that ! I like the fact, the penguin and the girl are talking to each other. Reminds me of Dr. Dolittle because he could talk to the animals. Thanxs for the share ! :)
