This wallpaper was made with Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 and is my first submission to MT. There are 29 layers and it took me about 7 total hours to complete. (10 if you count my mistakes.)

The scan I used was already beautiful the way it was, so I just decided to change certain things rather than extracting the characters. I had originally planned to use more of the it in the wallpaper, but like an idiot I forgot to save as I worked and lost 3 hours worth of fixing several of the mistakes in the scan (the blossoms on the top seem to come out of nowhere and Miaka’s sleeve is incomplete), so I got frustrated and just decided to cut them off, and only fix the branch on the left in the new version. I also added more sky than was originally in the scan, and I deleted the blossom-puff thing that was in Hotohori’s hair. It just didn’t look right to me, haha.

Next I added the moon, which is a stock from deviantART, and added the glow by just going over it with a big airbrush and lessening the transparency. Throughout the creation of the wallpaper, I also added several layers of blues, pinks, and purples with layer blends to get the color to the way it is now. I was going for something of a shining moon effect.

Then came the stars. Those were relatively easy, I just used a brush and erased everything that wasn’t over sky. Sorry I can’t give proper credit for the brushes, I downloaded them so long ago I can’t remember where they came from.

I finally though I was finished when I reviewed the sizing requirements on MT, and saw that the resolution I had used (1200x900) wasn’t accepted so I had to resize. That messed up so many of the edges, especially around the characters’ faces, and I had to fix them and clean it up. I’m horrible and cleaning and digital painting so I know I didn’t do a perfect job but I tried. This was a good opportunity to practice at it.

Anyway, this is my finished result. I know it’s not as good as some of the wonderful wallpapers on here, but I tried hard to make it nice. I think it’s okay for a first real try at making a wallpaper to submit. Please comment. Constructive criticism will be welcome, I really want to improve my skills. Thank you!

Scan: Minitokyo

Moon Stock: deviantArt

Update - I took the suggestion in the comment (thank you, by the way). The white dots were there from the scan; there were some sparkles around the blossoms on the bottom but I cut them off, so I guess the others didn't match too well. I cleaned off many of them and used a glitter brush to make the others fit in more.

    I like your concept. ^^

    There's some thing that you might want to take note of. First, there seems to be some white dots on the characters. If you do not want to vector it, maybe using so glitter brush around them (just a bit) will cover it and makes the wallpaper more magical. :)

    Other than that, I can't detect anything else. Nice first submission! Keep it up! ;)
