My submission for Vector Wallers' contest. My theme was "Loneliness and isolation", and I hope I came up with a good idea.

The wallpaper as a whole took about a few hours to put together. I made the sky, cage and character separately, since PS froze every time I tried to open 2 of these pictures simultaneously OX In the end I managed to piece everything together.

The rose vectors and the textures are the only things I didn't make in this wallpaper (and the font, of course). Credits are below.

The title is inspired by Kylie Minogue & Nick Cave's song "Where the wild roses grow". I love that song, it's very sad and I wanted to portray a kind of melancholy here. Ahiru is a bird who was captured, but managed to escape from her cage. However, even when she's up in the sky, she still feels trapped (hence the cage). Story made up by me, it has nothing to do with the Princess Tutu anime XD

As you can see, I desaturated the colors on the vector, because they were too intense. I left them a bit intense, though, since I wanted her to stand out. I don't know why, but Tutu reminds me of a rose - maybe that's why I choose this song to illustrate my theme.

I'm so tired... Good thing I'm finished with this one, at first I thought I wasn't going to finish it ^_^' I think I can concentrate on my future Kaleido Star projects :D

    The background and cage are very well made, though Tutu kind of stands out a bit too much. Overall, exquisite.
