Full View and Please Read before commenting oh you may or may not read the first paragraph/spoiler though ( just contains a 'lil bit of me and my rantings)
There is a secret code in the wallpaper you wont see it if you dont fullview it!. The code doesnt go along with the atmosphere of the wallpaper, it rather cracks the emotional factor XD Find it if you can and please dont complain why it cracks the emotional thing of the wallpaper ^^.

Spoiler found at AP description

The scan was from here. I always want to try something new so I tried reconstruction here ( If that is the right term - I mean redrawing parts that arent present). I had to redraw the legs and the skirt. Then I tried changing the color of the girls because the original scan's color looked kinda monotonic. As you guys might have notice some of the hair in the left and right girl doesnt have lineart, I intended to let them be that way.

I let my brain explode in the BG! At first I want to add cakes pastries etc.... and books but the colors kinda looked odd when I added the cakes. See the process picture ^^. I removed it because it would look like the focus or the first thing you'll notice is the food because it deviates from the emo color of the picture, so I removed them and just retain the books. I thought of stopping in the middle where they just lay under a white sheet of cloth with books and papers ( see the process where I would like to stop), but I dont felt satisfied with it. so I added windows and a shade of red-orange for a sunset feel. And poof it's done.

What I like in this wallpaper is the hair of the left girl and her eyes <3
Hardest part was shading and how to make the tips of the left girl feathery.

I appled what I've so far learned from the previous wallpaper - add contrasts or darker shades. Hope it's nice enough.

Thanks to the ff people:
Kitten and tina18 for helping me decide which is which and for your tips.
