I'm lazy so copy/paste from AP

New wallpaper ^__^

I finally decided for the background of this wallpaper.
To tell the truth I was thinking about some other background: sky with moon.
Bu then I thought that sky with moon bores me a lot because mainly all of my walls have a sky background. Time to do something different :)

The wall mainly bases on this scan:

I extracted the girl and cleaned the folt in the middle of her hair and get rid of the text. After that I cleaned the hole image and resized it to the resolution I needed.
I worked a bit on the flowers because they were mainly white but I wanted to have some shades in them.

Last I added the lightening effects on the crystal she is holding. I wanted it to glow and I hope you will like the result.

The main focus is on the girl and the crystal she is holding so I blurred the background and added the text (this took me so time to figure out how I need to warp it).

Last but not least I added a slightly bid of texture over the hole image so that it would blend in better.

The title of this wall is the title of the artbook from which the scan is taken. It's one of my favs because I love the art of Yuu Shiina and the pics are amazing.

Well, I hope you will like this wall. If so, please leave a comment and fav.
Every suggestion and critic is welcome like always.
If you have something critic (I know you have ^__^) please make it clear to me and maybe give me hints how to change.

This wallpaper is made for the FMN Competion #3

    Beautiful! Nice colors! The scan blends nicely. The light /power (?) is great.
    Thanks for sharing!

    nice color.........:)

    Like I said on AP, Color of BG, beautiful.
    It fits perfectly with the girl's color scheme.
    Excellent work on this masterpiece.

    nice background, it doesn't over shadow the image you used. I like the sparky effect you used, so pretty. the color scheme is nice as well. great job!

    The character, colors and extraction is very nice. The only problem is the background. The forground, and your character are distinctly obvious and clean when compared to your background. Your work would look incredible if the window and walls looked sharper. Another thing is the moon. The glow around it is a bit to obvious and again distinct in the space, it has to be more hollowish. A bit white gloomy glow I think :) It looks more like a white Sun to me ^_^'

    But overall, your work is very nice. I specially like its neatness, concept and colors. :)

    Keep up the good work :)

    nice! just love the scan used!
    i just love the darkish coloring of the scan
    + those nice sparkles in the sphere ao you call like that.
    though the whole background is a bit blurry..
    it would be nice if you make the bg sharp just like the girl
    but i guess you made that intentionally
    but overall nice scan used + sparkles effect!

    Quote by ealpha-scorpioThe only problem is the background. The forground, and your character are distinctly obvious and clean when compared to your background.

    I have to disagree there, I think the slightly blurred background provides a nice contrast to the foreground. The background does have a problem though: those black specks on the upper-right side...I had thought something was stuck on my monitor at first.

    very nice use of colors..^^ love the scan......beautiful detail in the flowers and love the lighting...^^ keep it up!

  9. mystvearn Feb 05, 2008

    I like the concept a lot. The crystal does shine very very bright. The wallpaper is good on viewing it for a while, longer viewing will strain eyes of some people. Keep it up:)

    So awesome >A<" When I saw this scan I love it very much.
    And thank you for to make hers in wallpaper.!

    I really like the bg and it was a nice
    choice to blur is a bit, gives more depth to the wall.
    As for the shiny thing in her hand, it bothers me somewhat :\
    not sure why, but I think it's too much...like maybe
    a little spark might have been better.
    But anyways it's very nice and great job cleaning
    the scan and making to looks so nice.
