My entry for vector-wallers with the theme, Isolation & Loneliness.
There is something that I really hate about this wallpaper... but anyway this took ages to make. I started it when this contest started, and for all these days I could not think what to do. I have to admit, I spent a few hours just staring at this wallpaper trying to figure out what to add. (I'm really telling the truth O:) Overall it's a very simple wallpaper.

I used this scan: here
As you can see, she originally had short hair, but to me since it didn't really make the wall have the "lonely" feeling to it, I decided to add long hair. Shadows took ages to find the right shade of color; hopefully I pulled it off all right. Texture I used is from DA!Desktop which I used for the floor/tiles. Then I painted in the flower petals. I'm not sure if it fits in, but it looked better than when I tried to vector it. >___> The necklace took awhile to do, but I actually like it. :] Overall, this wallpaper's okay; there isn't much to like about it.

Thanks a million to starrliteangel for all the tips and advice she gave in the making of this wallpaper. It really would look a lot more plainer without her help.

Oh for why this is loneliness and isolation: her only friend is the flower which is sort of dying, which is why I gave it such "sickly" colors...

    Whee you and your new wallpaper xD
    anyway, its a nice wallpaper :3 love your vector, love the atmosphere :3
    you need darker color, tho~ but its nice :3
    and the flower petals thingy there doesnt blend the wall nicely o__o give them the outlines xD;;
    for the "leaving me all alone" text, try to find another font, it'll be better if you change the font :3

    anyway, cool~ i wish i can make this type of wall o__o but >__>

    Wow! That's very sad! :( I really fell for this one because the title of this wallpaper related to me in a way. XD

    As for the vector I think the outlines nees some work, but the feathers are quite plain. There should be some in the atmopshere too. :3

    it might be simple but it is wonderful :)
    well done & good luck ;)

    YAY for simple walls! XD
    it's a nice wall :) the vector is really clean and u did good with the hair.
    the only thing I have to say is that the shadow she makes on the floor looks a bit strange, it looks like she is floating or something like that ^_^'
    but overall it's a nice wall! :)
    and I think it really suits the contest theme! good luck! ^^

    What a sad wallpaper D:
    But it does fit the theme ;)
    I love the floor, but I think the lightning could be a little softer.
    The vectoring is really good too, you did a great job with her hair, yesh.
    Um the petals are over the floor or they're floating around? If they are on the floor, they should have shadow. Just Saying.
    Anyway, it's an outstanding wallpaper.
    Gotta say I love the way you wrote the text <3

    What a depressing title. T_T But a very beautiful wallpaper, with the perfect concepts in it. I'd be suprised if this isn't in the elite gallery soon. :)

    this brings out the feeling or sadness in the wallpaper alright :)

    your vector's clean and well-colored. ;) but I do have to agree on chrisp-chan that is to soften on the rain and it'll look breater! :)
