Well, it's actually been a while since I last submitted wallpapers here; so here we go. :)

On my personal note, it always gets me think of winter whenever I see the "December" sheet on calendar. Why I said "think" -- because I actually live in a tropical country, which then rendered me unable to experience the real winter. ^_^'

But well, I always like the atmosphere of the season in particular, especially as it is depicted in movies and animes. And in relation that it's now December, and that I have watched Kanon, and that I have stumbled into this gorgeous scan...

...I can't help but to make another winter-themed wallpaper for this time. xP


OK, OK, let's cut the crap and go straight. When I looked at the scan, I feel that it somehow would make a nice wall to work on. So I started to work on it -- the first thing, I created the snowy-landscape for the very base of the wall. I then added some snow piles on it; also created the snowman and the snow-covered penguin doll to enhance the then-empty BG. Well... if you know whose mittens there are on the snowman, there's a point about it. ;)

The considerable tricky part was about creating the far-BG. I thought that I have to use not only an anime-like styled BG; more importantly, I wanted to use a more "Kanon-esque" touch on it. So there we have the many-branched trees. I tried to bring out the Key's style there, though I don't really know if it's coming close or not. (o_0)

On the scan, I also added some snow piles on Shiori and Kaori's head. Um, it's probably inspired by Shiori's snow clump on the ep. 2 of Kanon 2006, so there you have it. ^^;;

The rest was the finishing touches, though. Played with the lighting, created snowflakes, enhancing the DoF... and there came this wall in the end. ;)

Hope you like it. As usual, comments, advices, and favorites (if any) are always welcome.

    Can make the snow on the ground more depth by enhancing the shadow of it. It looks good nontheless.
