The idea to this wallpaper came to me because of the September Competition of the Scenic Group on Animepaper.net
The theme for this competition is to made a Science Fiction Wallpaper.

Well, I first thought about a Bubblegum Crisis wallpaper but by browsing the scans at Minitokyo.net and Animepaper.net I found this wonderful scan: http://www.animepaper.net/gallery/scans/Xenosaga/item27887/

After finding the right scan I thought about the background. Well, because of the Sci-Fi theme I decided to make a star/galaxy background. The actual background is a composition of different things. First I made my own starry sky background by using a brush I found at deviantart. Can't exactly remember who uploaded it because I have it since a long time. After making the stars I used a stock photo for the nebula things. So the background was completed like it is now.

The next thing was to create the planet at the back of Shion and Kos-Mos.
I used this tutorial: http://gallery.artofgregmartin.com/tuts_arts/making_a_planet.html
but keep the texture of the planet. I tried with texture but it looked to 3D-like and didn't match with the style of the rest of the wallpaper.

After that I extracted and cleaned the scan of Shion and Kos-Mos. I added a light glow of blue around the hair of Kos-Mos and leave the rest of the scan blank. I added a lightening effect so that the head of the scan is more brighter as the rest. That because of the glow which comes from the Zohar.

Last but not least I took this scan of the Zohar: http://www.animepaper.net/gallery/scans/Xenosaga/item126374/ and rebuilt the missing part at the left site of it. I placed it in the same angle like the hand of Kos-Mos so that it looks like she is holding it. In the end I added the light effects so that it looks like the Zohar is ermerging light. Added some sparkles from a brush I also found at deviantart.

Well, that's the hole story behind this wallpaper. Took me around one week to create it. I had to change some things but thanks to my friends I finally ended with this.

OK, I hope you like my wallpaper. Comments and favs are high appriciated.
