Artist Comment

What?! No GuoGuo wallpapers?! This is unacceptable! Who else could save me from the waller's block, other than GuoGuo? I love this artist. I hunted for each and every picture of his/hers on both MT and AP and got as many as I could. A few days ago I was sorting out folders, when I stumbled upon this beautiful image. My eyes instantly lit up and I knew I HAD to do something with it +_+

I'm not really addicted to painting, I'm more of a vectoring addict. However, I couldn't vector this scan because:
1) It's too pretty to ruin.
2) It's too soft to vector.
3) It looks fine the way it is.
Concerning the technical details, I used the Clone Tool a lot, the Smudge one a it to make the clouds look different from one another and the Brush to correct some mistakes here and there. I wanted to focus on the character more, so I darkened the right part of her face with the Burn Tool and brightened her left eye so as to give her a mysterious look (right & left are from her point of view).

I always thought the dual look of clouds (dark clouds against a light-colored sky or vice versa, sometimes look like the sky is the clouds and the other way around; hope you got what I'm saying, I don't know how to explain it better than that) is fascinating, so I tried to achieve that effect here. The clouds were more visible in the version with no textures, they kind of got covered up >_> But it's better this way, it wasn't pretty at all without textures.

Textures: Dioma & Desktop Anime
Scan: Xixiang Ji 28 by Morphee

    my! i should say the scan is really nice! and yup!
    its really hard to vector that kind of scan but anyway
    i like how you did the upper part having a super blurry
    clouds and you really did a great job there! also editing the
    scan to enhance more s totally nice :D though the only thing
    that bothers me is the watchamacallit fence thing(?) or arm ledge(?)
    anyway i guess it would be much better if you reduce the vertical
    wood fence at the left side of her since its almost not the same
    as the right part so maybe make an interval between them same
    as the right side so it may look as part of the scan but overall
    love the enchancement you made at the scan ;)
