First off, let us all pause and shout out a big ol' loud "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KITTEN!"
Happy Birthday, indeed. This is for you, Kitten! :D

This wallpaper is a little different than my usual stuff. It's a lot more straightfoward, and less abstract. I usually develope a hidden meaning while I work on the project - something important to me that I want to be included. However, with this project, I simply vectored several scans that I felt would look good together.

So, i was rumaging through the Okami gallery because as we all know, the game is not only beautiful, but an awesome game. I came across this scan of our studly beast, and thought it'd be a cool scan to wall. Especially if I tried to make the lineart as authentic as possible (similar to my Metal Gear Solid wallpaper).
I wanted to use an Okami background, so I stuck around in the gallery. I though this image had an awesome picture of a moon (which I turned into a sun, cuz I'm a rebel like that).

And so I had something to work with. Started lining Susanoo (which was a pain). When i finished with him, I had a feeling that the wall would look mighty empty. I was thinking "I want some leaves floating around", so a vectored the leaves from this scan. But I was still not satisfied. I wanted something else - something that would increase the humor. What I needed was one of the characters to be laughing at the poor samurai! Having looked through the whole gallery at MT, I shifted my search to Animepaper. Boy, there are a lot of scans over there. Found this scan of the Big Boob Lady who looks amused (possibly laughing). Bam! Everything was excellent!

After vectoring it, I tried to make the colors look as watercolor-ish as possible. Looks pretty good to me. Then again, I'm no watercolor expert. XD

And, as you can see, I walled it. What surprises me, is that it actually looks exactly how I planned it in my head. Usually I have to change things, or the wallpaper takes a whole new direction when I'm working on it. The only thing that really changed was the color scheme (I was originally gonna have all fall colors - reds, oranges, yellows and browns). Overall, I'm quite pleased with the resulting wallpaper. Oh yeah, I used an old paper texture I had to make it look like it was actually painted onto something.

I hope you like it Kitten! :)
You too, Minna. ;)

    Whoa.. I simply love the linearts. And how you've changed the whole colour scheme is impressive.

    Great job on combining various scans into a single wallpaper, and I definitely like the watercolour-ish style.

    Saw this on AP. *copy pastes comments*

    The lineart and pastel colors really work well here. I also like the overall design of the wallpaper and how you've put in all those scans into a lovely scene like this. You did a great job on it.

    Your outlines are just O_O. I just love how sketchy they are. *staring adoringly at outline still*

    I couldn't help laughing when I saw this, even if I don't know the context XD I bet all the girls will be amazed and Susanoo's studliness :o Me not included.
    Anyway, you already know what I think about it; loving the watercolor style and the edgy aspect, the pic seems to move thanks to those "random" lines :D Very good job!
    +fav, naturally :3
