*is now in a random present-giving mood*
This is an early Christmas present for a friend of mine on AP, because he likes pink >3 And the girl's hair is pink...*lamez*

Anyway, this wallpaper is made to fulfil asa01's request for the Moar Plz! project at Invalid Litter Dept on Animepaper (I know there's such a group on MT too ^^)

Quote by asa01
asa01, 10.08: i'm in the mood for a wall with lots of awesome painted clouds, preferably sunset, but it's okay if it isn't. just as long as it's an open sky scene (or mostly so) with painted clouds. 8]

I've had this Aria scan in my computer for ages, and I've always wanted to make a wallpaper with it. When I saw the request, I got the motivation to finish the wall --> I'm always slow at making them.

I flipped the scan, then I vectored the base image. I ditched all the outlines and started painting slowly, painstakingly with my mouse. (Yeah, I don't have the money for a tablet yet). The smudge, burn and dodge tools were used a lot in this process, especially for the shadings and the hair. I just have to say, I love her pink-colored hair >333
Then, I started making the background. The process also involves a lot of painting, smudging and *hair pulling and cursing* I made the clouds fluffy, the way I like it xD
Almost everything in this wallpaper is painted by hand, or more accurately, by my mouse, which probably has less than 50% of its life left by now o_O The only thing which isn't original are the birds, from the 'Skyline' set of brushes by JCM, probably from brusheezy.net
The title was given so because Akari looks as though she is singing xD

2 versions of this wallpaper are available - 16:9 and 4:3. The widescreen version looks better though, unless you like your desktop filled with Akari's face. *click here to see more resolutions*

And of course, the wallpaper would not be possible without this scan from cpxmay, also from AP

For the man who loves pink, especially pinky dresses with cute patterns on it.

*Spreading peace and joy with presents*

    aww it's such a nice and cute piece ! I rather like how you merged the character over yet filled it with birds and bright colors which merge well with the girl, good job.
