Wall was made about 6 months ago. Originally uploaded to Anime Paper.
Please do not use for anything other than a personal wallpaper without asking, thanks.

This is actually my second tribute to Teresa, my favorite Claymore character.
Lines vectored in Illustrator, colors painted in photoshop with my tablet.

Where did I find the original image? It’s actually from a spread from chapter 79 of the manga, but thanks to Unok on Mangahelpers I was able to use these two images:

for the lineart, and
to help with the colors.

Now for the process details:
I painted the eyes first (most important part imo), then her face, hair, armor, claymore, and background, in that order. I added her insignia to her claymore because it looked boring without it, and I traced it from the anime’s opening sequence. I intended the focus to be on her, so that's why the background is very blurry. Think of it as a short depth of field that contrasts her more from the background.

Brushes used (all default):
Hard round, soft round, and airbrush soft round.

PS CS2 filters used:
Paint daubs, Gaussian blur, motion blur, smart blur, noise, median, reduce noise, and unsharp mask.

    I have to say your painting skills are great, I love what you did with her hair, great shading, the sword looks amazing and what I like the most are the eyes, very detailed. The glow compliments the whole wall. I also like Theresa the best., don't call her a monster T-T

    The way you painted her is insanely beautiful. Although surrounded by a lot of details, I can't help but notice her gorgeous lips. They're delicacy kicks my thoughts from 'a bloody warrior' XD Her eyes are also superb.
    I'm glad you made such amazing Teresa tributes, she's my favorite <3
