So, this wallpaper has gone through several trials and errors and after many days of nearly gutting myself, I decided to just leave it as is. The original scan can be found here. Initially, I was going to add rose petals and a bouquet of roses around Hiroki and the lower left corner, but then I realized (after trying for about two weeks straight) that my vexeling skills aren't going to let me make decent looking rose petals. Every petal kept coming out completely flat and horribly blended, so I just gave up on it.

This is my first fully vexelled wallpaper, so it isn't the greatest thing in the world, I know. Concrit is much appreciated. I'm still a beginner with the pen tool (and quite frankly, making curves kills me) but I'm attempting to try, I guess. Also, the wallpaper lacks outlines because...I can't vexel with outlines. It kind of depresses me, as outlining makes it easier for shading and highlighting stuff, but...yeah. This wallpaper was originally going to be painted too, but I'll leave my attempts at painting for another time...

Hardest part of the wallpaper was trying to realign everything properly with the crease having taken out a portion of the scan. Nowaki's arm didn't line up with his hand and Hiroki's fingers were a mess. ;___;

Progress and Changes:
Progress 1
Desired Outcome 1
Progress 2
Progress 3
Desired Outcome 2

In the end, the rose petal idea was dropped due to lack of a good quality image reference (because they ended up looking like giant red blobs).

Wallpaper Info:
Layers: approx. 75 (I kind of lost count after 50)
PSD File Size: approx. 375mb
Patterns: InspirationGallery
Time: about four weeks (two weeks for the two characters and two for failed experimenting)

created for the chamber-of-kings valentine's day contest. xD
