Song Illustration #8: Princess Tutu - Once upon a December (by Aaliyah)
So I lied. I neglected the so-called "walling break" and made a new Princess Tutu wallpaper. I don't remember where I found the screenshot, I was browsing the Internet for a beautiful image of Tutu and came across several ones. This is the one I liked most, as you can see :)
Original image
Anyway, I smudged the shadows on her clothes and hair fluff a bit, to make her blend in better. And aren't her "wings" cute? They were part of her costume, but I smudged them a lot and (hopefully) made them look like fluffy wings XD At first I had a bluish version, but then I left it more orange-y.
And because a lot of people complained that the lines on the previous wallpaper were too thin (1 px), I used 2 px here. And a few 1 px ones, on the necklace and face details. Oh, and that nose is made by me, the original one was just a stain X-P

Story & "mythology"
Left side: the choices she had - to live a normal life, as a duck (bottom circle) or to risk everything (upper circle). Of course, she chooses the "upper circle" version (you know the story) and so becomes...superior, a legend, you can say :)
Hence the right part. The curls? I drew them by hand. All of them. On a lot of notebooks, then scanned them all, edited them a bit and left them edgy, grainy and grungy on purpose. I vectored the outline of the Tutu on the right from this scan.

And I guess that's about it. I'm too sleepy and lazy to count all those layers and shapes, but the PSD file has 72 MB. The patterns I used are from Ming Ling and some textures and the snow brushes I used are from Yana-stock.

    Aah, I know this part! It's from her transformation sequence, or is it from the OP? Anyway~ xDD
    I liked the way you did her yellow thing at the back, as if it was flowing or burning~ and hair fluff, lol, that's funny for some reason~ XD XD
    I liked how you made her eyelashes, like it's made of color burn~ but the one in the left is a bit weird~ >.<
    Cool crazy patterns in the back~ I liked the green too~ :D
    Good job, pande-san! And don't worry about breaking wall-breaks, we aren't offended at all by that. >u<

    the title's from a song from the film Anastasia, isn't it? >u<
    I love that film and the song definitely fits Princess Tutu~<333 (I'm going to feel so stupid if I'm wrong, lol.)
