I've always thought that the scan of Sakura that this came from was so pretty, I decided I wanted to wall it. First I vectored the part of the scan I wanted to use. Big vectors are so fun :). The scan had a bit of a sketchy look different from most CCS scans, and I tried to keep that look in certain parts of the vector. I had to extend the umbrella since it didn't go that far in the scan.

After the vector came the walling. I actually finished this vector on May 7th, and since then I've been trying to make a suitable background for it. Took a while, I tried so many different ideas. The one I finally settled on was this one. The scenery in the background is mainly from a scan at MT. The rain was made by me, and I added some minor brushwork/texture over the whole thing to give it a more mystical look (it may look odd, but it's there). You may think I just pasted a vector on a background and added the other stuff, but I actually spent over an hour editing the colours and effects of the vector and background to make them match and to fit my scene. I tried to create a scene of Sakura walking in the rain at night with the moon shining oh her.

In this version the umbrella is slightly transparent. If you want a version without the transparent umbrella, you can get it here:

Oh, and this wall may seem a little dark, but I kind of planned it that way. It was actually darker at first, but I wanted people to be able to see it :P

Anyways this wall could probably be better, but this was my best. Hope you all enjoy it, thanks for any comments, faves, and full views.

    Very nice! The cropping and vector for this wallpaper was good. Of course tansparency is way better because you can see those details in the background a little. :D

    Though the vector for the umbrella. I mean the little area where you hold the "base" of the umbrella "holder" I think needs anoutline on one part since the other half has a straight outline. Not very sure if you understand that since my grammar sucks. T_T

    The only problem I thought was maybe how the sky looked quite plain. Maybe add some stars to it and it'll look better.

    The grass might've been quite bright so it needs to be a little darker since the sky is dark.

    The mist might've been strange how it's just everywhere. Mostly put fogs or mists near the grass areas because I noticed that's how it's like during a foggy day. D:

    Pretty much that's it. :)

    I've always wanted to vector Sakura, and you've done a good job making it into a wall. I love it! But as Moon-chan said, there really should be another outline for the base of the umbrella otherwise it looks like a color leakage. <3

    Very nice vector, always clean and smooth.
    The top of the wallie where the umbrella
    comes in looks kinda weird with the rain coming.

    I like the bg on the bottom, very nice
    how you made that field. I think the umbrella
    would look better solid. Overall, very nice <33

    I would say that this is the best wallie I ever saw from your work =D
    The bg is really nice and match with the chara XD. + the transparent of the umbrella is really amazing.
