I got more time then I thought off so I spent it making another wall.
I recently started watching Canaan and fell in love with it, and I took a big liking to the character Maria Oosawa. I saw the opening and screencaped this moment, decided to wall it.

Screencap - Maria

I enchanced alot of her features; eyes, lips, added eyelashes and alot of detail.
Took me 2 days to make this, overnight as well I work and because I didn't want to make this a quickie I was sure to put alot of effort in it, took my time on alot parts.
The hardest part was her face and hair, drove me crazy till the end.

I was struggling alot on painting her features right so I asked Nysha for help,
she helped me alot on it. In fact, I don't think I would have finished it in 2 days if it wasn't for her. She hanged with me through the whole process and also gave a hand to help me with the highlights on her hair. After I finally finished painting her completely I moved on to the bg, which as you guess was the easiest part of the wall. I wanted the bg to be similar to the screencaps but more darker and fierce looking. Added a nice paper texture on her and to finish it off text in front. I know alot of you might not like the text but Nysha and I agreed the bright light needed it.

If you want a textless version just let me know, and as for the PNG...I'm not sure if I'll submit it. Anyone who wants it just let me know and I'll put it up on EDD!.

So to wrap this up, I will say this is by far the hardest painting job I've done.
I don't even think my original paintings tired me this much...ah, thank god for Nyshie <3~

Also, check out Canaan's Opening! ~ Opening [HD]

And lastly, you must visit EDD!~ Fun and Insanity here we come.

    I knew it was made by you >3
    I really love this one, the hair is amazing and although I'm not a fan of the font you used, the text fits.
    I think in the right side of the head some line-art is needed to separate the ear from the face, except that, nothing wrong.
    I love the texture and the simple background <3
    So many new submissions from you, gosh, and I'm getting lazy over my love Hibari sheesh, I need a bitch slap XD

    You really gotta make your signature smaller, it's way too big.

    Very pretty work, I like the use of warm colors. Everything looks vibrant and her eyes are just gorgeous <3 You basically brought that screenshot to life!
    Keep up the great work! ^_^

    This is really fantastic.
    I saw it on AP, and was like, who walled this?! It's yoooou!
    The colors are just fantastical, and the vectoring/painting is so neat! The lighting and textures are perfect.
    Awesome work, my love! I have a new desktop!

    P.S. I agree with Saku, make your sig a tad smaller!

    Love the firey colors and the glowy look.
    Good job with the painting too. The texture blends really nicely *me wants it >__>* I like the text too.

    Nice job on the skin and the simpleness of the bg is just what i love

    But i love this so much

    Yay this is done. :) You're fast. XD
    Brilliance indeed. It's simple but it really glows.

    Oh, but I did notice that on her right arm (our left) the glowy part is kind of disconnected from the hard edge. Jerky transition.

    The wall is outstanding! nice details there :D
    overall, I think you did a great job on it^^

  11. Sinever Jul 28, 2009

    it looks absolutely beautiful, the screenshot looks nothing compared to your wallie ^^
    well done & its a highlight!

  12. vitaamin Jul 28, 2009

    i think you did a great job with the vector and the color scheme, it really fits
    but the light doesnt have very much depth and it looks too white--try adding some yellow and oranges to the edges to really make it pop.

  13. Sakucha Jul 31, 2009

    yay, canaan! i haven't watched it yet but your wallie made me want to watch it now(is waiting for more episodes). XD
    it's just BRILLIANT.

    you really are improving <33
    the painting is gorgeous, love the fact that you enhanced some things like the lips and added eyelashes!
    I think the text fits well, it somehow connects the whole thing ^^

  15. KyouS Aug 20, 2009

  16. moonescape Aug 25, 2009

I definitely keep seeing you improve every wallpaper, but this was a pretty dramatic one I can tell. *_* I'm glad you still have patience for like trying to make such beautiful wallpapers beautiful-er than the scans everyday. xD So jealous for the time you have to even keep on posting one after another. <_< Well keep up the good work and creativity... DEFINITELY! >D
