This is an entry for celestial-luminesse & depths-of-sound 's Wake UP! Contest.

Wow, it's been awhile, hasn't it? I've been so overloaded with schoolwork this semester that I barely have time to breathe. But since I'm almost out for summer hopefully I can get back in the swing of things. :D

Layers: 72 (after the mass merge!)
Time: I have no idea... This one has been off-and-on work for quite a while.
Inspiration: "I Want You" by Savage Garden & Cherry Coca-Cola~!

Since this was a submission for the Wake Up contest, I went with cherry cola for my drink, because I have a bad habit of drinking it in the morning (but it's so good!). Rather than going with the color of the liquid, I used the design of this version of the Coca Cola Can. I took this SCAN and did this to it HERE. I wanted to make it look more funky, and like Sora was holding a soda can, so I changed her outfit, added headphones, and altered the position of one of her arms. I vector all of it and painted a few spots here and there, then added grunge textures to give it some flare (because I hate flat looking vectors... bleh). But alas, I must return to my schoolwork before I get too lazy to do it. Take care, everyone!

AFTERTHOUGHT: The shirt design was a play off of an older Coca Cola design as well! :)

EDIT:Thank you so much for all of the comments and favorites, everyone! I'm sorry that I don' have time to respond to everyone right now, but I am reading your comments and I enjoy hearing what you have to say!

    This is very nice! I like her shirt design ^^. I'm not much of the cherry cola though XD but I like coca-cola :3. Texture is always nice, I like the effect it gives ^^. *faves*

    impressive. you still got talent and I still love your styles, idea, and methods to get just the right touch. :) ther isn't much to say as I am way behind and I bow down to all my MT oldies buddies for I've been gone half a year, but now I'm back and will try to visit more often (no guarantee on posting any wallpaper/vectors). ^-^'

    I always love looking at your color-themed wallpapers. It's like monotone, only not boring to look at. XD
    I'd have to say that your wallpapers turn out to be some of the most relaxing to look at.
    I think a perfect song for this wall is "Cherry Cola" by The Eagles of Death Metal... for obvious reasons. X-P
    What I find awesome, is that even though this wallpaper sends off a very relaxing vibe, it still pulls through in the MENERGIZING department (I pray that you get that term... ).
    A perfect addition to the contest <3

    I love the colours! The builidings look really awesome (especially the detail in the windows) and I like the interior of the room - the grafitti was a nice touch. Well done! :)

    Cherry Coke, my brother loves it sometimes.
    Well your vector looks great and I really dig the textures you used and that design you put on her shirt.
