I have successfully made a wall in February. Go ME! So far I'm keeping up with my New Year's resolution, to make one wall a month.

Earlier today (actually yesterday, I'm just still up) I tried to wall a CCS scan that LOOKED like it had nice, thick outlines for easy extraction, but the outlines were really the colors of the background, so unless I wanted to wall it in the same spastic color scheme, I'd have to vector the outlines at the very least. And if I have to do the outlines (my least favorite part) I might as well do the entire thing. Maybe for March?

Anyway. I was faving stuff that I got notifications on, and noticed that Kitten and Chloe had stared a new group for retro walling! I was like "dude, heck yah, extraction, brushes, textures, text, awesomeness!" and promptly started looking for a new scan, and landed on this one, which I've always wanted to wall, and just never done. Easy to extract because of the nice outlines, but I wanted the extraction to be pretty much perfect so I did it on high magnification. It took me a minute to remember how to extract something. I thought Tomoyo's hair would kill me. Seriously. Getting rid of the horribly clashing hot pink made the scan a zillion percent better, and I decided to go with the peachy colors of the dresses. I used my absolute fav brushes, swirls! One set had hearts attached, and I added hearts to the second set that I used. I also have some transparent stylized cherry blossoms in the bg. The right side was kinda empty so I decided to use the heart sceptre to make a backdrop for some text. I really wanted to use some song lyrics but I couldn't think of anything upbeat enough for the picture, so went with the "all hail..." thing.

I'm actually really happy with how this turned out. It's not a complicated wall, it's not super detailed, it used techniques that are much easier than most of the walls that my friends and idols are making, but it was FUN. I mean, it's 6:33 am and I'm still up to work on it. I welcome comments and favs!

    Neat!
    I like how pale they are compared to the other dark colors and the yellow really pops out. Great job!

    EDIT: Wait, they're EXTRACTED?! I thought they were vectored! WOW! What quality!
