yay, I'm first ^^
incredible wallpaper! love the idea and ambiance of it. great work.
Experimenting with painting techniques, for the most part aiming for a watercolour/ink wash look...
All done in photoshop using my tablet.
*Is too tired to think of good summary - Been working on a few walls simultaneously*
It's probably not gonna be to many people's tastes, but I had fun doing it. ^_^

Yay for painted wallpapers! ><
Great work on the atmosphere and the lightning, it looks fabulous!

I agree wit the two above.
The painting is pure awesome-ness. The atmosphere is perfect for Mushishi, so mysterious and fascinating.
Must be a lot of work. *honours*
I love Mushishi. A pity that there are just so few wallies of it.

I'm not gonna lie. You get bonus kudos points just for making a Mushishi wallpaper. They're so hard to find in my experience.
I really love the lighting you did from the lantern, not too much and not too little. Just right. Though Ginko's face seems a little blotchy to me. Kind of like circles make up the shadows under his hairline. As well as on his foot. I think that these areas stand out as circular because, even though the rest of the wall has that same sort of texture, people's skin doesn't bounce light that way. So a smoothing or a more gradual blur of skin tone on his face and foot would solve that problem. Which is a slight thing that was bothering me.
Overall your coloring is awesome, and the textures left from the coloring method all work well everywhere else. Great use of color by the way. Very nice piece. Thanks for sharing! :pacman:

hooray for tablet! ^___^
very nice job on the watercolour-ish, ink-painting style ^__^ Did you just use the default brush?

lovely painting look, love the enchanted it seems, gotta say you just inspired me to do something with mushishi.

Well I'm not a big fan of this series but it's to my taste. :D Gosh you are sure getting the use out of your tablet, aren't you? I like the painted look of it, and the lantern is a nice touch of color to keep the wall from being too bright. I really like the reflections of the light off the water, it kind of reminds me of an impressionist painting (which I <3). Nice work!

A gem among gems. There are barely any Mushishi walls, and this one is just fantastic. Love the painted idea. The water is really focused on, nice texture and overall great color choices; gives the picture a whimsical enchanted look.

This is beautiful! I love the mood; kind of serene yet spooky at the same time. I love the colors, too.
