When I first saw this scan, I just couldn't get my eyes away from it. There is so much expression in the drawing that I really wanted to make a decent background for such a magnificient angel. She reminds me a lot of Hiro's Suu version in the H doujin of Clover. Unfortunately, crappy musical notes were covering some parts of the girl and her wings were cropped. So I embraced my courage and decided to redraw the missing parts.

What to do now? I came up with a first idea by listening to the song "Stairway to Heaven". I wanted to make crystal stairs into an heavenly evening sky where the girl would have been sit on... Ahah. Everyone know I suck at perspective. So I didn't make stairs but celestial floating cities with waterfalls. It's a bit clich�© but it fits so well, don't you think?

The background is entirely hand-drawn by me with PS except the main island (without the waterfall on it) which is based on a piece of art by Leonid Kozienko (http://leoarts.irk.ru/). <3 Credit to Nat for the title style. Thanks Mikko again for the pieces of advice. Enjoy the 3 days work!

    Besides of the little difference between the style of the character picture and the style of the bg, this is an awesome wallpaper and I must write that you did a great job on re-drawing the missing parts of the character.
    Good work. :)

    First off, well done. :D I like how the clouds are done, has that water paint sort of look. Like the waterfall 2, the water actually looks like its going over the edge, the water going down looks good as well.

    Some sugestions if I may. No need to do but to make the wall "perfect" I would:

    1. The wing you did yourself, the outline on the right part is pixelated, just the curves going down seem to be noticable. Maybe making it thicker may fix it, or making it thicker then using a brush to thin it out to make it smooth.

    2. Adding some (not a lot) glitter dots to the waterfall. Wouldn't the water catch some of the sun at the lower part and shine? I'm not really good at this sort of detail but thats what i think.

    3. The swirly line in front of the girl. It does look a bit like it was slapped on in front of here. Making it swirl around here would look better in my opinion. Making it go around her waist on the right of her and going behind her and coming up though the gap around her arm and the wing on her left and around again behind her head and then going in front of her forehead.

    No biggies tho.

    Awesome....! :)

    very nice !
    the bg is awsome, it seems like a painting !

  11. Sandy Sep 07, 2004

    Thanks for the suggestions hobby!

    About the wing: at its full res, the outline was slightly thiner than the rest and that's why when I shrinked the scan, it got a bit pixelated. It's a good notice but I don't think I'll do anything to that. I had pretty hard time to redraw it already... XD

    The glitter dots is a good idea but I think it would make the "painting type" bg less natural. Well, I'll try tomorrow anyway and update the wall if it looks ok. :)

    About the swirly line, I can't do much. I just retraced the original line that was on the scan. I was to lazy to yet again redraw some part of the girl...

    A wonderful picture with a wonderful inspiration! XD
    The painting is great; the clouds are wonderful and the islands well placed. It all works very nicely witht the scan too.

    The touchups are really good on the scan, though it is a shame that the weird lines are all over her.
