I made this a while back, but I'm submitting it now, 'cause it's a promo poster for:
studio-ghibli
If you're a fan of ghibli come and join *shameless plug*

Okay this was made from the tiniest image I have ever worked with: >>Click<<. And it was hell. Literally.
Anyways I vectored Nausicaa and this was the only easy thing to make in the whole wallie.
Then I vectored all the basic shapes from the whole bg and then painted over them - that took freaking forever... (thank God I 'borrowed' my sis' tablet ~thanks Hatsu~) I'm really proud of the flowers - they look really good (at least I think so I even made the colouring). After all the painting job I started working with textures and filters (to some extend) and blending modes. I added some (little) noise to the bg since it's a ghibli trademark - they always make the character stand out on all their images and I wanted to maintain this tendency...
After finishing the whole thing I proudly showed it to abul who happily showed me a bigger version of the scan (but it was darker than this on and the flowers were simply black so overall I'm happy I used this). At that time I was simply frustrated that I hadn't looked more thoroughly for a better quality scan... nonetheless I used it as a reference pic and fixed some little things here and there and added some more detailing to the bg.

Details
Layers: Nausicaa - 30 the BG - 70
scan: once again, read the description
sidenote: umm... In my personal ghibli scale Nausicaa is the best Miyazaki work ever.

    u already konw how much i love this and the only reason it gets less faves than my kiki shwit is my fanserviced past -_-
    70 layers? o_0 it would take 8-9 for me, maybe because i always merge layers XD

    I haven't watched any Ghibli films in a while, I certainly miss them. A beautiful wallpaper for a beautiful film. Great work!

    Dude, this is AMAZING. I've tried to vector from scans that small and have given up VERY quickly. The bg is beautiful and I like that you maintained the separation between Nausicaa and the bg. Great work.

    That image is really tiny, I couldn't stand vectoring of something this small.
    The fact that it's vectored of such a small image makes your wall more awesome somehow XD.
    Great vector of Nausicaa and the background is great, the vase and flowers are so pretty I wish I could see more of them in the wall.

    Great wallpaper to promote your group. :)
