vector-wallers Excellent Highlight
Thanks Sinever X3

I finally decided to finished this wall!... yeahhh
This was my entry for the Melancholy challenge at the battleground... *cough* yeah i took my time to submit this, lazyness :P
I had only 4 days left to make the wallpaper, so i had to rush and submited it a bit unfinished...
So now i decided to work on it some more... spent 2-3 days to finish adding the details left to her vector.. And also remade a bit her face..

1600*1200 - Day Version

1280*1024 - Day Version

The Night Version

Wide 1920*1200



The making process xD
I had this image found on a website long time ago.. "Clicky"
and i really liked it for this challenge... she looks a bit sad so i thought it would work well..

Again a crazy try with Photoshop... mouse painting XD
On one of the previous challenges i made my first painted clouds and hills with my mouse.. though they didn't fill the hole bg cause the vector covered the most remmember this wall?

Well this time... i thought.. why not trying to paint the entire bg?..

So again i started painting with my mouse, dropped base colors.. then details
(though i have to admit that i smudged the clouds.. a lot!... but oh well.. mouse painting is serious bussiness ^_^' ...)


I made her vector on Illustrator. I wanted to try harder this time.. so i made a very detailed shading... Also i changed her face expression a lot, made her look more elegant/sexy :D
Layers used = 812


After getting everything together..
- I adjusted the colors of the vector to match bg
- I made the rain painting some lines and using some filters..
- Then i made the falling water over the character... For that i vectored some shapes, erase them a bit and painted on top to make them look less flat.
- Other minor details, and some textures.. and i'm done xD ...

Time Spent: around 7 days (4 days 1st version + 3 to get this last one X3)
Programes: Photoshop and Ilustrator CS3
Vector Shapes: 812
Music: no idea xD (to many)

To those who have never attempted mouse painting, it's a tough job. Nevertheless, clarings has done an excellent job in not only in getting a very smooth vector of the scan, but also in the painted background. The entire wallpaper flows smoothly from corner to corner. Details are also not to be missed as every little rain drop on the character was also made from scratch individually. The amount of effort put into this as well as the result are something worth high praise. Well done clarings!

    Definately beautiful and wonderfully well done.

    I must agree 100% to Noami-chan2612 about the clouds, the painting was magnificent and the clouds were realistic when I saw them. Just breathaking! *_*

    The atmosphere is so sad, but it gives nice feeling from it. The vector was so beautiful and to think it came from Illustrator. :D Yay! I have an Illustrator on my team. >:D

    You did this with the mouse? Oh god... I could never do it! The shading in this wallpaper is just really perfectly done! I read your description, so many layers... I hope your computer didn't crash!
    I love the background as well... really skillfully done! It looks much better now than the original image.
