There are 2 versions available, both of them have a totally different BG so I dont know what you'll like!

I was suppose to submit this wallpaper on Holy Thursday before I take a 2 day out-of-town vacation but our internet connection broke and so I had to wait until now ( after my Holy Week Vacation ) before I get to submit this wall.

It was really hard finding a scan for KHR, why? The reason is because there are only a few scans and most of them are fanarts and I can't use them because I wont be able to submit it to AP. I want my wallpapers to be shared by both sites ( MT and AP ) as much as posible :D

I searched everywhere. I even asked some people where I could find screenshots of the anime because I dont download KHR ( btw I'm still stuck at episode 9 but I have watched some of Xanxus' arc and a few of the Future arc)

I finally stumbled upon this manga scan.

I vectored it and started my work. ( process picture found below )

This is my first bishounen wallpaper and I'm glad I managed to finish it. It was really hard for me to do this wallpaper because it's from a manga source. I've worked with a manga scan before but that was simple. This one really blew my head off!

The flames kinda killed me too I havent tried doing fires and this is the first of it...
Adding those freckles( small flame particles) is what I've learned the last time Kitten advised me on my wallpaper of Clannad in the rain droplets - I'm glad I applied what I've learned!

In version 2 the building was from here: http://www.zerochan.net/46559
I blurred them because they are far and engulfed in the fog.

Thanks to the following people who helped me with this wall through their tips
Kitten and YoruAngel866
I was torned whether or not to use black as shadows. Kitten had a point to use black since it makes the character bolder and the style of KHR is retained. YoruAngel866 ( yuukine ) likes it gray because manga scans have 2 colors which is black and white and they color shadows as black on the white parts. They both have good points and so to accomodate both I made them as one using black for shadows and gray for transition parts in the shadows.

I've also added yellow just as yoruangel suggested!

This wallpaper is dedicated to tina18 and aqiaqua too. Both their walls inspire me to do KHR! and yeah they both love tsuna, include me in the fanlist hahaha

Here is the alternate version: flame stylehttp://img3.imageshack.us/img3/6491/thedaytheflamewasborn.th.jpg

    I admit I like the scenic one better (but I always love those :3). seems more epic for me x)
    good job on the fire as well as working from a b&w scan, I know those can be hard.
    Not sure if there's anything to point out, kinda in a hurry here ^^''
    you did a great job :3

    very cool wall thanks for the share


  4. odelya Apr 05, 2010

    Mm, I'm a fan of the scenic one too. There's a bit more of a focus on Tsuna in it or something. Very awesome wall. The clean vector is great.

  5. HaouJudai6 Apr 05, 2010

    Very nice and Reborn is a good series

  6. mammonlovesmoney Apr 05, 2010

    It is cool looked... Hot wall-paper

  7. aqiaqua Apr 05, 2010

    Thank you so much for the dedication 8) It's really good to see a Tsuna wallpaper as your first bishounen wallpaper!

    I'm glad you retained the KHR style, I've always liked Reborn's art 8). The colouring is vivid and I think the fire has been done well! I'd say throwing in a few more colours or gradients would make it really pop, but dude, I love it 8).

    +fav and my new desktop~

    Tsuna <3
    I like the color scheme you chose, indeed fits Tsuna well.
    The sparks are nice, I would suggest making some glow and also
    adding them in front of him so it looks more like fire sparks.
    Maybe applying an orange glow on Tsuna would help show that he's
    around or in the fire, nothing overwhelming just a noticable orange outline.
    You did a nice job on the flames, the colors are very intense.
    My only nitpick on the fire thats on Tsuna is that it looks too squared/boxy.
    It should look more flowing and out.
    Great job here though, you're improving ^^ <3

    cool.. it's been a very long time since i've seen an amazing KHR wallpaper...

  10. James31 Apr 05, 2010

    Very cool wall thank you for the share :)

  11. trofikabinet Apr 05, 2010

    Nice work Ashlie, like what you did with that manga panel :3
    I prefer the scenic version, it appeals me better because the fire seems a bit awkward, especially the right part ^^; and the fire on Tsuna needs more yellow.
    All in all, great KHR wall, would you perhaps like to join chamber-of-kings?

    EDIT: Featured at CoK :3

    Thanks for sharing!
    I like this pic very much

  15. Tina18 Apr 08, 2010

    Waaaa, thank you for the dedication =D So sweet of you, TSUNAFISH!<3
    I see you did it the reborn way with black lines, looks good.
    I like the buildings version better, but I think you should up it on some other host(imageshack) cause on photobucket I don't get it full resolution but 1024x640 and it's small T-T Same for the progress, I like to see the progress pics xD
    Very nice job :3

  16. codon2 Apr 09, 2010

    I really like the scenic one >_<, if only you could have the resolution of the scenic one to a bigger widescreen resolution :x

  17. chanelqueen17 Apr 09, 2010

    GReat improvement! I like what I'm seeing here. The vector is crispy clean, but what made me fave is the flames. Lovely! (And scenic is even better)

  18. chrisp Apr 10, 2010

    i am really impressed by people who can draw flames and now that i see the scenic wall..WOW amazing *__*
    your coloring from black white is so nice, as if it was always like this!
    i agree that there should be a bin more highlights like in hair and such but thats so not the main thing here! ist tusna and his hotness <33 mraw i wanna take him home with me :P

  19. Sherillas Apr 15, 2010

    You've certainly nailed those flames. I can see that a lot of effort has gone into this so I'll just tell you what aspects of it is my favorite feature. The character is quite distinguished and the atmosphere is overwhelmingly powerful, so in short, I love every aspect of this wallpaper. Thanks for sharing your work!

  21. shakuganNPD Apr 29, 2010

    wow great picture. thanks

  22. Fran Retired Moderator Apr 30, 2010

    I really prefer the version with the building better, especially because it looks complete.
    I just adore how the flames turned out! They flow perfectly :3
    I'm not sure if Tsuna's skin should be that pink, though. And the dust on the right part looks a little grainy.
    Other than that, it's really impressive! Can't wait to see more KHR walls from you.

  23. LovePanda May 29, 2010

    Very cool. Really awesome.

  24. TMNTFast3f Jun 27, 2010

    can you make one with tsuna from the byakuran fight when he says "i won't forgive you"
