Texture from Aethereality.
Jane Austen and a font with Chinese characters.
Cloud brush and Rust brush from DA.
GIMP 2.6|Mouse

If you search through MT, you'll find there's no other scan with Marta in it, only the one I choose.
Here's what I did.
I enlarged the scan, cropped it and start making the linearts.
I refer to THIS artwork for the color. And this part was easy.
And I added the texture to the rail(?) at the front of the wallpaper, to make it look stained with rust. At least that was I intended to do.
And then, I'm in a dilemma when it comes to BG. First, I thought I should create a 'garden-like' scenery with yellow flower, but t turn out horrible and I cancelled it. Then, I thought maybe I could use bokeh texture for the BG. It turn out to be rather uninteresting and I didn't like it. So, no bokeh and removed it.
Lastly, when all hopes abandon me and I'm feeling weary (lol, don't believe it, it's a lie.) I try making sunset scenery. With the help of Cloud-brush and the Rust-brush. Added gradient and the fireflies.
I saved the file in JPEG before I put the text, cause the file size (xcf) is 236 MB and the GIMP was working very slow and my mom told me to go to sleep cause I sleep late yesterday and I need to go to the town tomorrow.
And I put the text, I was choosing between 'Marta Lualdi' and 'Garden of Fireflies' and the fireflies win.
And I changed the color balance.
And that would be all.

    it's nice to see a dawn of the world wall here :D
    I think you did a great job in here, though marta looks a little bit blury (or it's just me)
    other than that, good job :D

    Very pretty! The wall has a nice, warm glow to it that I really like. The textures are also quite effective. My only real recommendation is that you consider shifting the text over to the right just a tad.

    It seems it was tough to make this. But I loved.

    It's kind of hard to find some pics from Dawn of The New World so I'm glad you made this.

    Great job.

    I'm looking foward to an Alice pic too XD
