this is the best color work i've seen you do. the fullview is not as stunning because there are a few messy places here and there in terms of technique (esp in the foreground). in that sense it looks a bit incomplete but aside from that its really beautiful work and i like to see you making better use of colors.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Eeva-neechan!
Hope you have a great day, lots of presents and eat lots of cake too :3
Hope you like my little present ~
Not so surprisingly, I made a UraBoku wall for you :P
Now...........I totally FAIL OTL
Like I said in my previous work, I'm making things difficult for me on purpose in order to improve my skills. And so,
last time the challenge was doing trees;
This time was to make a nighttime scene with trees! But more like a forest...which equals "leaves" in which I totally fail. And I'm not really satisfied with the outcome orz
Original Luka image came from the manga (since Eeva-chan
is basically vectoring every single image and so I don't know anymore what's left for me *cough* XD)
Did some changes here and there; colored on SAI (thank you Erika-neechan for giving me SAI +.+) and then back to Photoshop for blending and lighting effects.
Made the background from scrath even though I had to look up for a reference since it was my
first time doing something like this.
I wanted a night, dark looking atmosphere but I needed a light source other than your "everyday" moonlight so I picked some fireflies. I think that's my fav part of this work (besides Luka that is <3)
Some parts of the lighting are looking a bit flat to me but I reached my limit x_x
Thank you for the support as always everyone~ I really appreciate every comment and favourite m(_ _)m
--Other (late) b-day gifts coming next...I hope orz--
Original Image: Manga panel
Time: 7 hours (yes, I know...I did this in a hurry and in the same day!) - March 30th

Thanks for this!

I love your color use and idea for the bg! *___* Though like vitaa said, upon fullview it's not as impressive because the strokes are still a bit unrefined, the lighting (esp his skin could be darker ) could be improved, and more fireflies could be added to the foreground in front of him and to the side of him near those green highlighted spots. (like I said on ap) But you've definitely gone in the right direction, I just think it can be pushed further, then it would really kick ass. :D (I guess this is why I could never finish a wall in one day lol)

Awesome looking wall *___*
You used really great colors and I like the bg idea.
EDIT: Featured at CoK :p

Great work Kairi-san! I like the fireflies idea and it looks gorgeous combined with Luka. XD + fav and Luka smexyness FTW~ ^^

Wow this is such a vivid wallpaper. I love the theme, his heartbroken gaze makes it all the more enchanting. Great job on the vector, he appears refined to perfection, but my favorite aspect is his hair, I love how you blend the colors to give it such a realistic feel. Splendid background! The fireflies are a terrific idea, they do so much in contributing to the theme. The colors are amiable and gives the wall a nice warmth, very nice blending. I love the overall presentation, undeniably an attractive wallpaper, thanks so much for making and sharing it.

Wow, Luca looks so amazingly beautiful.
You did an awesome job Kairi-san.
GreenMia Mar 30, 2010
nice tints of color! It is fantastic picture!
Kitaan Retired Moderator Mar 30, 2010
Didn't think I was going to like the green but in full view
it's gorgeous. Lol, I kept thinking how bad I'd be freaking out if
I saw that many fireflies near me.
Wonderful coloring of the BG and the beautiful shades you picked
work so nicely together. Nice job.
erikamirou Mar 30, 2010
OMG such a master piece *.*
(ahh I'm so glad you liked SAI xD SAI rockz XD)
I love the theme and I love the fireflies *o* I wish I could make trees like that T__T
The painting work looks awsome, as usual, and I hope I can see more works nee-chan >3<
I, too, should work more xD
Echolen Mar 30, 2010
I love the colors you used! And the lighting's great!
zbujenka Mar 30, 2010
The light green looked a bit strange at first, but seeing the picture as a whole... i like it very much - it really made an impact :)
jns Apr 01, 2010
Holy mother of macaroni! This is exactly the kind of painting I love.. Especially those yellow highlights in his clothes
And great use of color too
lisz Apr 02, 2010
You really must teach me how to properly use a tablet><
I personally love the sketchiness in the background and the random brush strokes here and there, plus you did a wonderful job with the color.
I kind of wish the eyes could be a little more darker, but it's lovely the way it is.
