Vector by erikamirou:


Walling process:
Geeez.... I must be on a walling high lately...even though this isn't hard to make, but still! For me to submit wallpapers this frequently is like... I'm on drugs! (no I'm not I'm just kidding XD)

I extracted the character from the lovely vector by erikamirou as you can see above. Because of her awesome vectoring skills, extracting was a breeze. I wanted to "Syaoran-ize" my desktop so I picked this vector...then it occurred to me..

....then what? XD

I was like "ZOMG CRAP I HAVE AN AWESOME VECTOR BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH IT!" T_T so I looked around MT for inspiration and it dawned me that there seems to be a trend lately


Crap, I was seeing them everywhere, floors, walls, in squares or diamonds...Checkers are like a trend! So I just decided to go with the flow and created a checkered wall with colours from the vector's BG, then I made the floor...and then...I got carried away =.= Usually I rarely care about shadows since all my wallpapers lack a definite light source. But this time, I got carried away and started to pay attention to the little details, such as the shadows of Syaoran's shoes, the intensity, added a little light here and there...and I thought the wall looked a bit empty so I just added some brushes and blended a texture for that "gungy" look =P

To blend Syaoran into the whole wall and to fit him into the perspective was the hardest since I've never worked with perspective before (if you have seen my previous walls) so this was quite hard for me. Rearranging his perspective means changing all his shadows...again.... =.= I know it's not perfect, but I did my best *exhales* Oh and did I mention I couldn't decide between the less shadowed version or more shadowed version, fogless version or fog version? Geez...I have so many PSD files now =.= Thank God I didn't start debating on "textless or not" O.o This version is known as V2, Shadowed Version since it has more shadows compared to the original =3

Ok ok, so for the more...technical details to not bore you anymore with my rants and me going on a walling high. I don't vector so thank god for vectorers! Love you guys! ^^
