Happy super ultra belated birthday, Saki-chan! My extreme lateness is so lol. (Saki's birthday is on February 27th ^^)

When choosing something for Saki-chan, I thought of the obvious...CLAMP, Code Geass, maybe Carnelian....but those have all been done a lot. So I simply decided I wanted to do something "cute", because I think of Saki as cute ^^ And when I saw the Rika/Hanyuu scan I was like "Kawaii! This will work!" and got to it ^^ I don't think you've even seen Higurashi, have you Saki-chan? Either way, I hope you'll like the wall anyways ^^

There's text on the scan so of course first thing was to vector it. And my gosh, the colouring was harder than the outlining. Every single part of every little thing is a different shade. So I ended up with lots more layers than usual. And almost all of them have a gradient.

Then the BG. *Dum dum dum* I think this is my first time really painting clouds from a scan, not just half-painting and smudging. And I came up with these twisty looking clouds. I call them my Fairytale Clouds XD I don't know whether they're decent or the ugliest thing ever; they look painted and that's all I wanted XD Hardest parts were the places with text; I'm bad at reconstructing. You can love it or hate it, but it's staying like this ^^ Added a bit of fog in the front and I was done~

The wall's title (and the Fairytale Clouds XD) were inspired by the ending of Higurashi Kai.

Spoiler (show)

When Rika and Hanyuu flipped the calendar to a new day I thought I would cry ;_; Finally they get to live on...

After all they've been through, they deserve a happily ever after.

(This wall is kind of decieving, ne? If someone who doesn't know Higurashi saw it they might think the anime is happy and full of cute lolis...well I guess the loli part is kinda true.)

    I love the vector, very cute and warm.
    The back ground is pretty much simple like
    the original scan, although I love the fluffy cotton
    candy like clouds. Very nice job Hikari <3

    Crap, and I still haven't even finished hers yet. T_T Uh-oh, if only the computer's virus hadn't gotten bad and I could afford my sister's laptop to have more memory so I can open my wallpapers. T_T Gotta start complaining and starting doing it. >.< Wow, I'm surprised that you knew about that series. I was recently introduced it by my friend-ish and it was because he complimented me saying that the series (or was it character) reminds him of me. o_o" I shall start browsing around that area to see why does it remind him of me?!?! (O_O)
