The vector is made from a picture of the second opening (I've some problem with Hibbox so I can't put this picture).
I thought a long time for the BG, and tried some different versions (as usual...) I hesitated to keep the original BG (cherry blossom), but I finally chose changing it. I like bamboo, it's a beautiful vegetable, and it fits this character in my opinion. So I vectored some bamboos to make a forest.

I finally worked on lightning, contrast, dominant color to make something peaceful, as he wants you to follow him among bamboos...

I hope you'll like it!

    There are some bamboo pieces behind the main vectored ones that look very pixelated and the lighting makes no sense, it's like someone holds a lamp in his face.
    Vectoring is good, but pay more attention to details.

    "bamboo, it's a beautiful vegetable"
    In what world it's a vegetable?

    I think the background is a mess, it's very crowded and you didn't bother to finish it, I can see a LQ image behind the vectors.

    Try looking at references or other wallpapers featuring bamboo so you get the concept
    of how they should look. A perfect example would be Vindicator by Nysha

    Also the image in the far back is way too pixelated & low quality for the wall, it has no business being there.
    The bamboo needs alot of shade, you detailed the vector but forgot the BG. Try not to rush everything, this is what happens when you do. Also, Bamboo is not a vegetable... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamboo there you go.

    Well I see you've vectored parts of this for the bamboo bg: http://hd-wallpaper.org/95__Japanese_Bamboo_Forest.htm Without crediting your references. I recognized it instantly.

    Because of this, you added various bamboos too and they all have a different style, adding to the "mess" others talked about.

    most people have commented about your "minus" in here
    the bamboos are a bit too messy
    when you added something too much, it won't look good either.
    and the pixelated pict behind the bamboos is quite annoying
    since quality is one of the factor that people want in a wallpaper
    also, more shades on the face will do the trick I think

    The lighting is horrible.And I'm not saying all the other bad things that others have said.I really wish you'd spend more time on your wallpapers.I hate how you rush everything.I noticed this in all your wallpapers.It looks like you're just making the lineart, you fill it and then you use the burn tool and gradients for shading.And that's it.You reeeally need to work on the details.Try to enjoy making a wallpaper more.Savour it!Heck I work on my walls for so long that I even dream new ideas while I sleep XD I think when you first started walling you were better at it.You seemed to have a lot more patience

    Uhm Cilou, you have been a waller for long time enough to understand that there's so much to look aside from just being prolific. You have submitted 139 wallpapers here and only a handful of them look actually finished and well made. Your wallpapers deserve that they get more attention before being submitted.

    I honestly don't understand what's going on with the background. The furthest bamboo layer is pixelated and enlarged, the next layer is painted and detailed and then the layer depicting the closest area of bamboo is just vectored and looking flat. There's a huge lack of cohesion in this wallpaper.
    I really hope you take what we say and actually take your time before submitting something, no one is rushing you to make and finishing walls, because you already proved everyone you're really fast at walling.
