The wallpaper has been updated, thanks to Vitaamin for the advice and taking her time to help me make it look better. The previous version of the wallpaper is available at the bottom of the description in a link for the ones who are still interested in it.

Here is the new Nightlight version, click on thumb for download/full.

I'm a bit too early for this, I should've finished VW's resolutution wallpaper first but I'm too lazy to take the other computer which I can't work on at all nowadays. Neither was I planning to enter the Chamber of Kings' Valentine contest but I had to make up for not participating with two other contests which I was planning to do so I screwed up my weekend making this. Now I have to rush on some homework but it'll be fine, I think. Not to mention, I greatly dislike guyxguy and yet I create something of it. Anyways, since I have no sense of pairing, I just picked one out randomly.

I made the vector in Illustrator as usual with the laptop touchpad (no mouse but I got used to it) and my wrist started to hurt at some point from annoyance or whatever you call it. Some random progress screenshots from the vector that I happened to upload: one, two. The wallpaper itself doesn't take so long to bring in together for me, It usually really is just the vector that sucks up most time. Vectoring costed me about 2-3 days and a lot of hours, I don't know the exact time since I was slacking about half of it. I got Kitten to get me some texture and she made the background out of random where I took my own turn on since I didn't really have an idea for it to start with and here is the results after screwing around enough. I created two versions, the original one is the lighter with the pink/yellowish sky (I wanted to keep it soft), the other is the Nightlight version or so I call it.

This whole wallpaper is dedicated to my one and only online waifu, since I don't have any relationship or anything I thought she was a good choice and also a great thanks for providing awesome scans. I don't know if she has an account here but whatever. She's known as Laki (MyAnimeList, LiveJournal) and likes Yaoi which I dislike as I stated before. For the rest, I want to thank Gin (Doffindom), Kitten and Oyakata-sama (Yoruangel866) for the support. I'm proud of it despite the fact that it's a tad gay.

    I never expected to see a shonen-ai wall from you O__o
    Doing something that you dislike/hate.....RESPECT!

    You did an astounding job!

  5. kunogi09midori Jan 24, 2010

    You don't need to love shounen-ai/yaoi. As long as the art is beautiful it's ok! I'm not a fan of yaoi but I like this wall. Love the light version, love the soft warm colors.

  6. Yoline Jan 24, 2010

    I loved! The hair are awesome and the colors are so harmonious
    The lines are great too (L)

    Thanks for sharing!

    the airbrushing needs to go >_> it washes out your colors and just makes everything look foggy, not dreamlike which is what i think you were going for. the grass looks a little too green in the background as well. i dont know if its just my screen (i havent seen anyone mention it yet) but the jaggedness kind of kills >_>
    the night version would look so much better if you used a less intensely electric shade of blue for the background, to give it that airy feel that this version has

    Nice pic! Thanks for sharing!

  15. DepressedYoukai Jan 25, 2010

    -Swoons- Your vector is AMAZING. BOTH versions are amazing and omg~~ Thanks so much for sharing and taking the time to do this!
    I totally understand about the touchpad, I hate it. Tried photoshopping with it, and it annoyed me =/
    In any case, I'm so glad you finished it, and I'm sure others are too, because it's great :D

  16. sailorchiron Jan 26, 2010

    I agree with vitaa--full viewed it's jagged in some areas and seems murky in others. I would like the nightlight version the better of the two if the sky was a deeper blue, but I'm not a fan of the other version, it's a little too easter-colored with the yellow and pink. I like the textures that you used, they do make it more interesting but the shading seems to sit on top of the pattern rather than darkening it.

    Edit: Okay, I looked at the pink version again. Full size, it's not jagged but in a place or two, and easily ignored. In the blue version, the jaggedness is bad.

    nice details! but no! i dont support yaoi. lol

  18. Kan-tastic Jan 27, 2010
