Hum, this is a very old wallpaper and probably the one I'm most famous for. CANT HAVE THIS ONE MISSING IN MY GALLERY, BASICALLY.

I can't remember much of the old description, but I obviously made this one watching Higurashi. It was quite shocking to see all the bloodlust after two episodes of pure omg-i-gotta-puke-happiness, so I wanted to catch the disturbingly scary but at the same time peaceful Watanagashi Festival. Sketched, vectored and painted on top. Enjoy!

Watanagashi Festival, a celebration to commemorate and give thanks to the local god, Oyashiro. Keiichi learns that every year for the past four years, one person has been murdered and another has gone missing on the day of the Watanagashi Festival.

    At first, I thought it was only a scenery wall but then there's Rena's shadow reflected on the water. Excellent job, I really like it, the sihuotte, the lamps and the fireflies effects all come together beautifully.

    i absolutely loved the anime!
    and your wallpaper is perfectly catching the atmosphere of it. especially the shadow of rena on the water which you only see after taking a second look is great!
    thanks a lot for shring!

    I remember this one! At first I thought someone was ripping your wall and a smackdown was about to happen... but I'm glad you decided to post it here. It's a shame it's not a bigger resolution- I would actually put this on my desktop again.

    It's still gorgeous! :)

    breathtakingly beautiful and the detail to the water and lanterns stunning. it's like I'm actually at the water's edge watching them float by, I can see why it got the grace and honor of elite status. butterflies and fireflies as well as the ripples on the water...I don't fav often but this one is well worth the faving, nicely done.

    LOL. I totally thought the same thing! I actually thought this wall was already here... Somehow I already have it downloaded on my HD... maybe I got it from Pixel Ellipsis or somewhere...? Anyways, lovely job always!
