So here is a new wallpaper
This is taken from a music clip "On You Mark" by Chage & Aska animated by Hayao Miyazaki, it's very short but he manages to create a great story, more details here. And one of the scenes caught me attention...

The vector has been made from several screenshots to improve the quality of the source, therefore it's was quiet hard. The wings are a bit different and I'm not totally happy with the feet. Screenshots: [1] [2]...
The sky is from the same screenshot as the other but I blended it and added some filters to it.
The text is hand made in Illustrator since I couldn't find the font that suit me on resource site, so don't ask me for the font because it doesn't exist for other letters than Fly :p

Time taken on vector: about 4-5 hours
Time taken on the rest: about 2-3 hours
All this have been made in a weekend long

Illustrator CS2: Vector and the "Fly" text
Photofiltre Studio 9: signature, blend and final render

Additional version for wide screen available here

Comment and criticisms are welcome, and of course FullView it :)

    I do like ur idea, and this could have been an amazing piece. but I'm very particular with clouds and how they're drawn. since the image which u vectored pretty well, is very sharp, it contrasts too much with the soft poofy clouds. I would have loved it if it had more depth and have a more definite shape. thats just my opinion though, I'm not good at drawing clouds that much either. good job anyhow.

    Unlike ventures, I don't have a problem with the softness of the clouds- but there are 2 things that need to be taken into account- one is the lighting. The clouds are seemingly lit on the right, wheras the girl is lit on the left.
    The second thing is perspective- the clouds are looked at front on. I guess it's kind of awkward to have a girl front on and flying at that angle- I guess it's more natural to assume we are looking at the underside of the girl and clouds ;) If you look at the lighting of the girl, it kind of is the underside (dark centre, with highlighted edges) - but then the hair would need to sort of flop down (or on the wallpaper, flop "out")
    I also kind of wish the text was moved down to the vertical centre and given more of a focus, rather than put to a corner, because it's such pretty and beautiful text T_T <3

    But this is great quality, and lovely concept! <3
