Before you stands the first collab I've ever done, with the awesome Kelsey <3 We get along very well and are two of the best wallers on TheOtaku.com, so we decided it was time we combined our skills and made something. As you can notice from her wallpapers, her style is mostly grunge, while mine varies from grunge to vectored (even though I've vectored more recently). I've got her permission to post the wallie here, and you can read her side of the description here.

I admit I was hesitant in the beginning, after reading the descriptions of collab walls; almost all say the wallpaper took a lot (months even!) and I kind of felt the enthusiasm fading ^_^' But Kelsey is a person I respect a lot and she understands PS as much as I do, so working together was a pleasure. First, we handed out the tasks: she was supposed to take care of extracting and cleaning up the characters from this scan: Blue Sky by nat (she likes Ookiku Furikabutte so we decided to wall this scan), while I made a background. Of course, while passing the file to each other, we tweaked some things and added ones. At first we were simply going to recreate the scan background, but then we agreed on a sunset scene. Kelsey made the grass and trees, while I painted the clouds from some stocks, the sky and added lighting to the characters. And since we're both texture freaks, we had to have textures XD

I think it was fun, and after taking a small break we're gonna be "at it" again! Doing collabs is fun <3

Since a lot of people demanded texture-free versions, here they are: 1600 x 1200 & 1920 x 1200.

Comments and favs are very welcome! Please tell us what you think! ^^ <3

    Why didn't you tell me you submitted this? D:
    I would've never seen it if I hadn't gone to your userpage. >.>

    I like the atmosphere, as well as the emotions that the wallpaper makes me feel. It makes me think of a perfect friendship. It's also very peaceful, yet vibrant and full of life.

    You two did a great job. ^^ And Pande, next time you submit something, let me know! XD

    Late comment. >_<
    Nice collab, I really like the background you created. The warm colours and textures really give off a nostalgic feeling, like I'm looking at an old photograph.
    Personally I prefer the textured version.

    Ahh, that's so cool, I never did a collab~ >w<
    The result is great, you did the clouds wonderfully, Pande-san~ :D
    The lightening and composition are really cool as well~ :D
    The process still seemed to be a bit complicated, though~ passing the file so many times must be tiring, lol~ >w<
