Egads! It's not a scary(ish) wallpaper! My little sister helped me come up with the idea for this wallpaper and the band Within Temptation inspired the theme, so kudos to them!

Series: Infinite Undiscovery
Time: 4 hours
Inspiration: "Somewhere" by Within Temptation

Oh yes, and thanks to Dev for helping me pick the color scheme! I guess it's not really that green in the final product, but at least I got away from the string of red wallpapers that I was making ^_^' I'm still on the hunt for the right Chrono Cross scan!

I started watching me sister play Infinite Undiscovery on my brother's XBox360 and I fell in love with the story. I wanted to make a wallpaper for that game so badly, but unfortunately there isn't very much in the way of artwork to choose from. I used one of only two beautiful 3D renders that I found, but I wasn't sure how to approach making a wallpaper with it given her awkward stance (example scan HERE ), until my sister pointed out that tilting her would make her look like she was sitting down o_o I used different stock photos that I extracted, touched up and blended together to make the scenery. The wings were inspired by something that takes place during the game called "The Lunar Rain", during which people are filled with the moon's power and wings appear after so long on their backs, and since the moon is such a huge deal in the game I made sure to give it emphasis in the background.

The Music of Inspiration:
Well, this is actually a spoiler for the game, so read at your own risk!

Spoiler (show)

My sister and I felt like the song "Somewhere" really fit the girl Aya and her love at the end of the game, as he is left behind to cut the final chain of the game so that everyone else can leave safely. She spends time after that waiting for him to return as he promised he would, even though it seems impossible ans she doesn't give up hope on him.

End spoiler section. The music helped inspire the scenery too- when I listened to the song after looking at the scan this was the image that came to my mind.

Don't get me wrong, I still like vectoring, but I really miss seeing the beautiful photo manipulations people used to make with cg renders. Maybe that's why I have been working on so many game scans lately... It's starting to feel like all anyone has to do to is vector a scan from a popular show and slap a plain colored background to it. Believe me, I know... most of my top wallpapers are from the xxxHolic gallery.

    I have to agree, I really miss gorgeous photo manips people used to do. And about the vectors and popular stuff. That's why I love your scenic wallpapers! <3

    This one is just breathtaking. Even though the scan has a different colour scheme from the background, I think it fits well together . The moon is gorgeous :O. Same with the wings. And the photos have been blended together so seamlessly. I envy your skills :P. I think the petals look slightly out of place... I think it's a nice touch but they don't... seem to be in the same style as everything else? I'm not sure, I can't quite get it across. But overall, I really love it! +fave <3

    A bit too saturated to be honest. Could do with a little lightening up.

    Saved the best for last xD I luv this wallie so much that I hug my computer screen whenever I see it!

    This is one of the greatest wallies I've seen in my life.

    u have given me the idea to like make a section on my page advertising beautiful wallies like this XD I wonder if I could actually do it though with all the groups I'm running lol

    Anyway I luv this wallie sooooooooo much. If I had to pick a top 3 fav wallies of my life, this would definitely be one of them.
