My entry for the battle vs EVI @ povism.org.

::THE THEME::
A Season's love.

Judging as per the rules.

- only male + female couples are allowed (no ecchi!)
- no gray-scale and no B&W
- have to be mixed in use of tools (that means you can't make a full PS
brushes wall with with a scan, or just a full vectored piece nor a
full painted one. Doesn't matter how much, you have to use different
tools to make the wall.
- at least 1280*1024 (widescreen allowed)
- text is allowed as long as you don't write the season's name (you
chose) into it.
- only vectors made by you are allowed
- stocks are not allowed, (ie, photos)
- textures can be used (and brushes)

I chose my wall to feature Summer! My favourite season. Some of my partners said that it's not quite straightforward. I had my doubts too but I asked my lovely mother and she responsed: "Summer of course!" And as I said before, I trust my mother. >3<

I used almost every tool that exists in Photoshop CS2.
1. Pen tool (shape layers) for lineart
2. Eyedropper tool for blending
3. Brush tool for painting
4. Smudge tool for fine details and blending
5. Dodge tool for light effects
6. Blur tool for fine touches
7. Polugonal Lasso tool for scan extracting
8. Move tool for changes in elements' positions
9. Zoom tool because I can't live without it
10. Burn tool for other fine touches
11. Eraser tool because I can't live without it too


::THE CONCEPT::
You know you are in love
when you see the world in her eyes,
and her eyes everywhere in the world.

- David Levesque -


::THE MAKING OF::
I started browsing galleries that contained art I liked while searching for couple scans. I then browsed Deus Machina Demonbane. I saw this scan and fell in love with it.

I just had to think of how to make a wall out of it. Then I went to deviantart for inspiration. I saw this tiny image that basically inspired me.

WIP:
http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/2157/wholejh0.th.jpg

Step One: Scan rotation, lineart, scan extension, scan extraction, placement into blank canvas.

Step two: Painting of lineart:

Step three: Basic bg colors

Step four: I blended and defined the shapes on both sides and then added lots of details on the right side mostly and less on the left side.

Step five: More details on the right side. Added painted fish with reference, bubbles, lighting tweaks, and a black border.

Step six: Details on the left side along with more fish. I also edited some things I didn't like. The squid is a touch that is about to go in the next

step. I also added text.

Step seven: Final touches, lighting effects, more blending of the characters into the bg.


I would like to thank everyone who supported me in my team. I appreciate it deeply.

    What can I say... I'm OVERWHELMED. Thank you for sharing the image with the step by step making of... That was really inspiring :) 10/10 +fav

    Very nice work! I really love the effects and details that are in the background! However, I would have chosen a different scan. . . . .His hand just looks weird and her hair should be more fanned out instead of in just one spot. but that is nothing that you could have changed unless you wanted to vector it. But the scan is my only complaint. Everything else is perfect! ^_^ Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Awesome....I just love it. The vector is really beautiful.
    Also the background is really lovely, but I think the bubbles stand out a little too much.
    Anyway, excellent job
