'Kay, guess who's submitting right now. Yep yep, the great all-mighty Nari. XD

I'm in an artistic hiatus since a long time, but I finally got the guts to finish this one. It's dedicated to my late cousin, who died on 24th of June in a car accident. He was 27.

The title is "Leaving...?" since for a long time after the tragedy occured I still could not believe he's gone. I didn't mean it by first, but after all, I decided to make the leaves picture life, since leaves fall so as people die. And since I consider trees beautiful, and I'm not the only one [I hope hehe] I'm very sad when that happens. Of course, new leaves grow, such as my cousin's daughter, who is almost 1 year old. She's the most adorable human being on the planet! I love her so much and miss her~ T__T I HAVE to see her soon. Too bad she won't get the chance to meet her real father now.

Anyway, let's not be sad and whiny, it took me some time to get over it and I don't want to start all over again. XD

I'm sorry that I don't have the original, but my computer crashed some time ago and I lost lots of files, including the original image. Visit AmySol.com and you'll find it in her gallery. :)

The wall looks so simple! O_o I swear it doesn't look like I spent all the time I really spent on it.

It was quite a small picture so again I had to vector and repaint it. And it really was a PAIN! In the soft part. >_< Like my other Amy wallpaper, I started with vectoring it and painting on top of the vector, while still keeping some elements. The colors are earthy, like Amy always uses, mainly because the paints on wood. It isn't my greatest work yet, since I'm striving for a highlight and I'm sure this won't get one but I'm working on it. ^^ Maybe my artistic hiatus will help me~.

Isn't her artwork lovely? ^_^

Also dedicated to:

Kiru~chan [as a small yet inefective apology for slacking my duties on our collab]
Revie~chan [as another inefective apology for not participating in her contest]
Starr ~ because I feel like it and it's another apology for being the ***** that I am and for slacking my duties hardcore.

I'm really really sorry. T_T

And dedicated to whoever else wants it to be dedicated to XD

Enjoy, please comment since I want to know your opinion. It helps a lot. :)

    OMG A NEW WALL FROM YOU?! Welcome backkk Nari, I was seriously wondering where you went. T__T
    It's such a sad, yet beautiful wallpaper. You did a sublime job vectoring and painting the whole piece. I love the soft, pasty colors. Another amazing work from you. Those birds are so adorable. xD

    o__o There's no need to apologize! I was pretty sure you had gone being busy in those weeks. But I'm so honored to have this wall dedicated partly to me. xD Beautiful work once again Nariii. <3

    a beautiful et touching dedication Lady Narikoneko.

  15. alterlier Aug 26, 2007

    very pretty and it's like this second version of that wall of yours named..."quidlibetdtrd somethig" wich it was also lovely, it reminds of it, first well because you did it from the same artist and mostly because of the tones, the earth ones, I love those ones.
    i dont know if im right but my favorite part are those mushrooms on the left bottom corner, haha they are just eatable, sweet

  16. peniko Aug 27, 2007

    cute face xD

  17. BadMoonDemonHowL Aug 27, 2007

    It's peculiar, really, how some things so sad can lead in the end to something very beautiful.

  18. flyindreams Aug 27, 2007

    Really not much to say apart from beautifully done! Very lovely and fitting tribute to your cousin. For a bit of nit-picky critique, I feel like the outlining in her hand could be a little stronger, because it blends into the background a bit too much. Her four-fingered hand also threw me off a little bit, but I think that's how it looked in the original. The clouds on the bottom right could be a leetle more subtle, but that gets into really nit-picky territory so I'll stop here lol. Again, beautiful job :]

  19. MapleRose Retired Moderator Aug 27, 2007

    nice pose and emotions. The pose is so sad and longing. Nice colours and good job on recreating it. However, I would've liked you add bits of your own touches instead of just recreating the original. Also, I think those clouds looks a little bit over-smudged...
