Minitokyo needed an injection of colour. The walls these days need more oomph ? and it's a semi-scenic wall! XD

I started this at the end of last year, and now it's like, mid-June? Ahahaha. I've shown so many people this and asked so many people for advice, thank you.

And a dedication for Tina18 ? Happy birthday!

I had an inspiration hit sometime last year, and I thought I'd combine mario kart with reborn! The scan was perfect, because the new mario kart games have everyone on bikes now, so I went ahead and vectored it. The bike was the hardest thing ever, I swear. But once I had finished outlining it, the rest was pretty easy. Tsuna is garbed in a trade-mark Aqi colour scheme with pattern and gradient abuse xD.

I know only tsuna is outlined, but it looked awkward outlining the lumas and the roads, so I didn't.

Now the background was a huge obstacle. I had vectored the two rainbow roads in the foreground and then I was stumped XD. Then I thought I'd just throw in a few Lumas (the star things) but it still looked plain. I made the galaxy old-school-style, which I'm quite proud of. Everything looks a little flat though, and I couldn't work out how to create more depth :/ I'm a bit worried the realisticness is weird with all the cartoon elements, but mario galaxy was like that, and it worked for them xD.

And I haven't used these sparkle brushes in a wall for years!

I wanted to make a planet, but was stuck for what to put on it. And what better way to watermark a wallpaper than making a planet with your username? Teehee :D. It was pretty fun.

I then nagged plenty of oneesans (and an imouto-chan) for advice: asa, nysha, fran, kuryuki, yamibou-eve, tina and they gave me some really good advice, so thank you 8).

Yay, it's done! It looks quite exciting on my desktop (albeit little icon room, but it's widescreen so it's all good), so I hope you guys enjoy it! Comments, faves, crit are all appreciated in advance ?

This will be my last wall for a while... Expect a new wall in October! :D And it will be massively awesome. Oh yeah.

oh lawl i forgot to add that to get reference for this... i made my sister play the game and i took dodgy photos :D

file specs -------------
Program: Photoshop cs3
Time: Lawl 6 months on the main background
File size: 200mb (it got up to around 274mb at one point, but I had to shrink and merge it).
Layers: Definitely over 200.

    FIRST! Tsuna on bike = lovely...It somehow reminded me of Super Mario Galaxy although I only looked at it for 5 seconds >.<

    Strike down the first sentence, gave it a closer look and read the stuff. It's so colorful, I love your colouring style of Tsuna, reminds me of your Coke wallpaper. It's a bit funny, because it has Mario obviously all over it! XD I would have preferred a glowy/sparkling look in the foreground just like you did with the galaxy background though. Lumas looks like having starrite (was it called that?) lollies.

    First to say...mhhmm looks amazing on my desktop *drools*
    Yesh you were right MT really needed more color, thanks for giving us this amazing piece!
    I was so waiting for a wall with aqi style, so i could go all WTF again 8d
    And you didn't disappoint me, your vectoring and choose of colors are really unique :3 And your idea to make it mario cart style is just the best ever! But man it looks really painful when i look at it...didn't you get arm cramps while vectorin? sure looks like it!
    btw tose star thingies are so cute >///<..nothing agains tsuna thou xD

  3. Cris25 Jun 20, 2010

    woooooah, omg, it's better than I thought it would be. no, it's freaking awesome *__*
    the colours are amazing, and the way you vectored tsuna is amazing, as always xD


  4. Yamibou-Eve Jun 20, 2010

    Your motorcycle's killing it for me. :/ The black and the lineart of it and Tsuna don't match the BG in any way. I feel like it would have worked better going line-less like the Lumas and the Chomp. It does have a nice dose of colour and I love the mesh up. In fact I really like the rest of the wall, the black's just doing me in. XD That aside, nicely done.

  6. Chloe Retired Moderator Jun 20, 2010

    The colors, the vectoring, the general fabulousness... great job!
