Procrastination FTW~~

So LJ kindly reminded me that Tofu's birthday was coming up. And since I was getting nowhere with work, I decided that walling her a prezzie would be much more worth it. :3 So.. Happy early Birthday, Tofu! We might not be super-close, but it's been great knowing you~ I'm sorry this is not Muse, I didn't think I could do Muse or Link justice. >_<

I flailed through scans and finally found one that I could wall: THIS.

Idea? I basically just retraced the girl-and-cat duo, then messed around with the background. The final result is not what I expected, but it's happier and has textures, so YAY. The theme is.. very unplanned, but it's supposed to be like "go with the seasons, follow the flow that springs forth, la di la". Ahem. Fantasy landscapes again, because that's how I flow~ :P

The strange blobs were supposed to be strange blobs. lol then they started looking like city-from-above, for a while. Now they just look like strange blobs again. Erm. Made a few versions, with the blobs and the original scan's layer edited out.. Red boots for Wizard-of-Oz reference lol. She's walking her way home, on the road not paved gold..
Textures are all from the same scan because I'm too lazy to look for more... :P

Resolution is 2560x1600 because that seems to be the one that Tofu walls. :x

And so... Hope you like, Tofu! >_<

Program: SAI
Time taken: 3-4 hours

EDIT: advertisement pfft. anime-fans-united If chu love anime, join the group~~ *hypnotise*~~

P.S. Thank you for the wall elite! :D
P.P.S. Made 1400x900 version for Tofu. Did minor extension at the bottom...
MT, Why you no like 1400x900 walls? XD

    Ara ara, this is very colorful, the artistry may look a little over-enthusiastic but overall, they blend well together. Good job!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH <3 I love how colorful it is. :3
    It's like an EXPLOSION and you know how much I love colors <3 and and it's like water, but fluorescent and WHEE!
    No worries about it not being Muse or Zelda! Despite popular belief I do have other interests!
    Maybe we're not close now, but let's hope we get closer. I like talking to you. :)

    Thank you again <3 *flail flail*

    Gorgeous wallpaper is gorgeous >_< When I first saw it, I thought "this is what a dream would look like if it were perfectly captured on paper". It's all so chaotic and colorful, Freud would have a blast analyzing this!
    The background is just amazing, I love works where the bg shines more than the base image (the girl and cat, here). And I don't know what I can say other than incoherent mumbles, since the chaos here is so perfect that it's almost ordered <- wha? made no sense.
    And I'm happy it's elite'd, but y u no get highlight? ;_;
