I made this wall a few months ago as a bday present for kiru. yay for Nodame Cantabile! :3 Ah, and the title "Shabondama" means "Soap Bubbles" which just so happens to be one of the titles to an Otsuka Ai song. (woot for Ai!) :3

So for this wall I took the scan and did a is mix of vectoring and painting..but the painty side shows more.. ><'' I wanted to keep it nice and simple and sketchy looking because I felt it would fit the scan better. The bg was a vector, but then I went over it with a simple hard round brush adding in the sketchy look and other details. Ah, the funnest part was adding in the bubbles in the bathtub and making the rubber ducky :P oo.. and of course I had to use my extreme texture abusing skills to finish it off. Me and my texture abusing self need help lol!

Nice! The colours in this piece reflect how peaceful it is to just sit, watch the clouds go by and blow bubbles - what a wonderful world! The paintiness of this piece is really lovely - it reminds me of a semi-watercolourey feel and semi-blotty feel, which in turn enhances the pastel and makes this so relaxing on the eyes :D

And I'm such a nerd for saying this, but I LOVE the placement of the windows <3 So typically architectural ^.^

    What a beautiful crafted background! You've treated the scan with real grace, and applied that same style to the whole background. It's wonderful!

    Love the simplicity and the soft pastels. Nice work on paint job and the slight texture gives a nice blend.
