My first dual screen wallpaper! I hope dual screen users who like Kiddy Grade (and not only) will enjoy this! :) I seem to have taken a liking to stained glass-type walls... Not that I think of it as a bad thing! I've had my eyes on this picture for quite some time now, I loved how Lumiere and Eclair look. So I decided to vector it, since it was a very, very small and low quality picture. You can see it here. See? X-P Unfortunately, my computer crashed, I had to format the drive I had PS installed on and I lost the original file, so I had to start all over again. I'm not upset, though, that was only the outline part and this version is much better, in my opinion :)

In the beginning, it looked as if it was going to be just another boring vector, with nothing special to it. But then, out of experiments, I discovered the great opportunities I had to make a beautiful vector, using the Gaussian Blur filter. Because that's the only filter I used in this wallpaper. And the textures are from the default pack of PS CS2. I actually painted the background a bit, it isn't all made of textures.

First I drew the outlines -this time I made them different colors, not all black. Then came the eyes, the basic colors for the hair, the hair shadows and the skin. At first I had a completely different idea for a background, I wanted to use the Sun (Eclair) and the Moon (Lumiere) again as a subject, but I didn't like it >_> All of a sudden, I remembered one of my older Sailor Moon walls (not submitted here), in which I used vector lines to create "windows". I added the textures in different parts to create the impression of a mozaic. By the way, there are no textures on the lighter parts, those are the "pure" vectors.

Easiest part: the outlines
Most pleasant part: the eyes and playing with the Gaussian Blur filter <3
Most unpleasant part: the background (it wasn't quite unpleasant, but I spent a lot of time thinking of it!)
What I like about this: how ghostly Lumiere turned out XD and Eclair's lips! <3
Wallpaper inspired by Solwyvern's The Avernus Cathedral

    wow!
    i love it, even though the outlines are rounds in the ends again :)

    The outlines are nice, but the eyes were kind of too soft I thought and the black outlines were too bold. x_x

    Well I still think this was a nice idea and the outlines for the whole body + hair was very thin and smooth. :o Though the problem was the shading was quite odd since it looks kind of flat. :/

    Nice vector, although their eyelashes look weird with thick black lines. Love the use of frames and textures, kinda give a nouveau feel. Though I'm not a big fan for the abrupt change of colour on the background.. It's a nice dual screen wall btw. So, good job!

    Aww, so pretty~ the syle is similar to your latest one too~ :D
    I liked Lumiere a lot, she's indeed ghost-looking~ >w<
    But, on the 1280 versions, Lumiere's has a lot of Eclair's hair over it... it's kind of destructing the mood~ >w<
    Really cool work, congrast! ^.^
