OBJECTION! Man I'm addicted to Ace Attorney! *was playing a few minutes ago, DS ran out of power* I suck bad but I love it!

Phwee! Finally, a non-tsubasa non-vectored wallie! Man I miss seeing these sorts of wallies at MT. You know, that's what sorta drew me into walling. The god-damn amazing skies and shiny bits and stuff before I'd even heard of vectoring. I'd like to make more of these sorts of things, but I'm not good at them >____<.

I have honestly no idea what anime this chick is from. Sorry for any inconvienience, moderators! I found it as a png file on aethereality.net in the cg arts section. I don't recognise the art either.

Story behind wallie:

I was just browsing through the popular section of the MT gallery, the bit where there are all the walls with like 300 faves and stuff. I'd been meaning to do a wallie for ages, so I thought I should learn some new techniques and try it out. I had a lot of time too, I have a middle ear infection and missed the last two days of school. I seem to get this often. Anyway.

I went on a frenzy looking for tutorials. I looked through a few on DeviantArt (correction = 20+). I found THIS one. I didn't understand a few bits, so I screwed up some parts, but I'm pretty satisfied with my moons. They probably look the longest to make. Like 2-3 hours?

Then I wanted to make a pretty sky. Except I didn't really want to paint the clouds... so I found two gorgeous stock photos from HERE and merged them together. The colour of the sky at that time was like purple. But it didn't look right, so I changed it to orange. I have so many layers with the colour changes. The starry sky was also from a tutorial, from HERE. Very good tutorial.

Then I went hunting for the girl. I looked through the fate/stay night category and stuff but no luck, I wanted something with maybe Saber on it. So I went to aethereality.net's pngs and found her there. She wasn't properly extracted though, with little white bits everywhere, so I redid it.

I also attempted to make water. Failed. So there are another two stock photos (from the same place) and merged them to make the fieldish thing. Altered the colours and changed all the layer modes.

Then there is the brush of the tree and swing, which I thought was pretty symbolystic (of childhood, or something). From lunaregina.com (I think that's the URL).

Then I added a few textures, the white whirly things and the text. "Life is a road, now and forever... A wonderful journey" are the lyrics from a song in the disney movie Anastasia. One of the houses in my school was using it as their song for the music festival (which I missed) and I really liked it.

Then added a few textures from HERE.

So, I guess that's it :D. Any comments, faves and crits are appreciated in advance!

Aqi's ramblings:

Has anyone read the Twlight series? Stupid question xD. How cool is Edward!? And I've been playing brawl, playing ace attorney, and watched Vampire Knight Episode 1! YAAAYYY~!

Anyone else got brawl? I use Pit, Zero Samus, Zelda and sometimes Link. I need to get (SPOILER) Toon Link and Wolf. I suck at Marth despite the fact I love his haaaiiirrr... and I miss Roy :(

Other versions:

No other versions, will make some on request :D. A bit tight on time now.


Groups: Lol I've been abandoning all my groups xDDD sorry guys.

    Oh, a new wallie made by my cute imouto-chan. <33
    It looks really awesome and so peaceful. I can't tell you how much I love your sky, it looks just breath-taking. You're quite good in mixing different scans and stock photos together. It's really rare to see those kind of wallies nowadays (I am no exception though because I can only make vectors by now, totally lost the ability to do any good backgrounds), so this makes yours even more special.

    The bg and scan fit together well, but the wp looks rather washed out.

    oh! Aqi-chan!
    this is just a lovely wallpaper =)
    The sky is so lovely!
    i also love starry skyes, so, i download the tutorial too.. i know the steps for the normal stars, but making novas and that kind of things are really usefull too!
    i'd like to combine vector image with brushes backgrounds, but, in some cases is difficult because the hard lines in vectors..
    this wallie is super-cute, the unknown girls is also lovely, and the back have a tons of hard work on it, so, it's a fav for me! (i'm also fail everytime i want to make water in my wallies XD so.. don't be afraid, you're not the only one :( )

    Kisses and hugs!
