This is my entry for the first contest of Kaleido Star 4 Ever :) It took quite a while to finish, mostly because I was too lazy to work on it. I began working on it in... May? or April, and I finished it in June XD This was mostly because the end of the school year was rapidly approaching and I had to study ~_~

As you can tell, the whole wallpaper is vectored. I first started with the outline which, surprisingly, is only one layer. Guess I tried to keep the layers number to the minimum this time. I spent a lot on the outline, since the enlarged screenshot was of poor quality (had to duplicate it, then change the duplicate layer's blend mode to "Multiply" to actually see something). You can see the original-sized screenshot below. After I was done with the outline and coloring, out of pure curiosity, I hid the outline layer. And it looked surprisingly good without it! However, I was sick of the whole thing by the time I finished it, and had no patience left for filling up the little empty spaces between the outline and the colored part.

I modified a lot of the colors, making them more contrasting, to make the atmosphere a little livelier. The original colors were pale and desaturated. I also wasn't satisfied with the background and wanted something simple, not too distracting. So I chose this retro type one :)

My favorite parts are the jewel Sora wears on her skirt, the beads in the girl in the lower left corner's hair and the "grapes" in the hair of the girl in the lower middle part XD And I love the texture on Sora's blouse! (it isn't too visible, but I adore it XD).

The girl on the left is Sora, while the others are other performers, anonymous ones. Frankly, even I am surprised at the amount of attention I payed at the "unimportant" characters! I like how Sora came out :)

Title: inspired by the song "Celebrate good times" by Cool and the Gang (it's a really nice song, I suggest you listen to it :) )
Layers: 39 (not including some merged ones)
Textures: some are default ones, and one from Crimson Butterfly
Screenshot: here, from Eclipse

    Interesting perspective you've got! XD
    It's really cheerful and happy, but I didn't like the girls being cropped... maybe you could have skipped vectoring them and filling the space with something else~ -_-
    Also, I feel the outlines cold have more curves, they're kind of too straigth~ >u<
    But I like the mood and the colors, and you've got a nice result there. ^.^
    Good luck in the contest! X-P
