Please fullview! It Looks much better that way, trust me!

I'm back from inactivity! Yay! Hopefully it will be a long stay this time (WHA-? It's been 17 weeks since I submitted something?!?!) Anyways, I made a new wallpaper, and also updated my userpage if anyone is curious to check it out! :D

Now for some stats...
Hours: 10 in total, not in one sitting, though...
Layers: 32
Inspiration "Storm" by Lifehouse

As for making the wallpaper, I wanted to make something with a rainy theme for the group Timeless--Rain since I've been neglecting them for a little while (I'm so sorry!). I was having trouble coming up with an idea, then I remembered a scan from Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria that I had wanted to wall for some time. The tricky thing is, though, that the scan has a lot of blurring in it because it is supposed to show that there is motion because the people in it are in a battle. The scan is HERE so you can see what I'm talking about. This kind of made extracting the girl I wanted to use extremely difficult, so I decide to build around and upon the scan instead and use photo manipulation to my advantage. I had to repaint pieces of the scan to clean it up, as well as adding in a somewhat dirty cloudy-mist to go with the rain and give it the feel of a heated battle. The rain also helped to explain why the guy behind her is so blurry and gave it the feel of a torrential downpour. The Pillar on the side and cathedral passage were added and had to be altered to fit the somewhat realistic, cg feel of the piece.

And there's my chunky explanation for my wallpaper. I'm pretty happy with it, so I hope you enjoy it! (and don't tell me they look blurry because they are SUPPOSED to be, and I can't do anything about it).

    She has a lovely luminescence to her. It could be mistaken for light play or even the haze of rain when it hits something. Regardless, it's striking how she stands out so crisp and clear against the blurred background. I admit I do find myself straining to see the person in the background (but there is the possibility that I'm looking for a player inparticular xD ). The greenish gray tones play off of her beautifully. It almost gives it that classic or epic feel that comes with the mythological origin of the game.

    Now that I've given you a philosophical standpoint as to why I like it, now I'll simply state that it's beautiful. But I can't say there is really anything that I haven't thought this about that you've made. Keep it up, itoko...

    Love the colours in the background. The images also create and very "olympia" like effect, of a greek goddess in the clouds. Good job ^^
