started working on this wall from july 30th, well, the scan i used: Cute Girl! by kosmessenger
well, i rotated the scan so that she looked like as if she's standing and not lying on a bed
then, i started working on the doors, this was not easy(the shading part), then the background, well, what do you think of the tree, i'm really dreadful at making trees, so this was the best i could come up with, and then the clouds
added textures in the end and changed it's opacilty to a very low value
i think that's all
layers used: well, i think it's more than 50, coz i kept merging certain layers, so i'm not sure
the textures used were from DA!

    Nicely done! The scan is a bit fuzzy, but the doors and the background are really well done. Great job!

    This is refreshing to see a kirei onna standing in the doorway, looosing up her tie after coming home from (school ?). Seeing the light fall on the her shirt (white) shows a "3 dimensional" look. Love the shading effects, easy on the eyes.The way how she tilts her head to the left, allows the viewer to come in closer to her. It's like she is inviting me to come closer to her.Her facial expression, relaxed and non threatening (to say the least)
    The tone of her skin I find realistic. The way the Sun's light falls from the east, looks like it's in the early morning(say around 08:30 to 09:30 hours.)Her hair, Love it.
    The tree in the background doesn't look bad at all. Just having a large tree helps fill in the open space. Not having the tree would make the journey othe Eye less fun. I also like the clouds in the background. Looks like the weather is changing, like there will be some rain in the near future.
    The colours used in the B/G, shows me this pix (like a photograph) makes think that Fall is in the air. That Summer is waning fast. Over all, if I was a judge (which I am NOT ! lol!) I would give U a "10" on your work. An "" 11 "" because I love Fall colours and feelings that Autumn envokes. Thanxs for the share and I hope i will see more of your submissions. ;-)

    I must agree with Chole-chan about it. The scan maybe fuzzy, but the background really went well. :D

    I mean this is way better than the one I made. It's like you had it all planned out. :o

    nice job, i like how you did to the door, however, the wooden part that behind her back looks kinda flat, the tree is nicely done but it would be better if you use other brush to make the tree but i like how you did to the shade of the tree

    nice color nice bg
    good job ^^

  18. vatican92 Aug 07, 2007

    NIce idea to turn the scan around a bit to make it look like she's standing up

    Wow......... shading the door must've been really hard @_@

    You made the tree?...... that's awesome

    Overall, I think this is a wonderful wallie

    but the color of the door doesn't really fit the balcony color

    But still it's awesome~

    My only complaint is that the shadow on her neck looks rather similar to a bruise, and is a bit distracting.
