Title: Heat of the moment
Anime: Shakugan no Shana
Render Source: I honestly don't know anymore.. What's most important is that I did not drew the render.

Inspiration Story: This is an ''extension'' to my recently released wallpaper ''Tranquillity''. I figured most people use Windows 7 nowadays (sorry don't want to be a mac/linux/and what not~ hater) and with it you can easily save your desktop ''themes''. The ''Tranquillity'' wallpaper is best to be used in a calm/soothing mood while this one is more action like. Of course everyone can decide for themself, this is just how I switch beteen themes with just a few mouse button clicks!

Creation Story: This is by far my most ''layer'' intensive wallpaper I ever made. Counting over 29 layer groups that usualy have 1-2 layers in it. The scan was a beast to extract in the first place, but good thing I love to work in the late hours of the night. I made layer on top of layer to create depth in the clouds and ground. Then layer after layer of colors to gently get a flow from cold to warm color spectrum. After that I spent several hours to get the render (our precious Shana) to stand out more, to be sharpened but not to much. Things were starting to look good slowly, then I played with filters, tho they are not hard to use, it takes some time to get them all to match. To make those powershades I used spiral vector brushes with a black color on softlight and then erase bits by bits on each layer (on every layer you erase use a lower opacity). So instead of a overlapping shadow you get one that looks like it is bending over the ground (which I thought would look cool). And lastly my main goal was to create a feeling around her blade with the flames, a feeling that it feels hot and that you could almost touch it. I hope I managed a tiny bit of it! <(^.- )>

That's about it, don't got any more wild stories about how it was made, it was a lot of fun to make it that's for sure. I might make one more ''extension'' wallpaper of this kind before hopping to different projects!

Thank you for reading, I hope the wallpaper is worth of your +favorite and preferable a comment!


Since I just came back to Minitokyo I'm still hoping to make some friends, kinda lonely alone haha ~_^ Have a great day!


If there's ''need/demand'' for other dimensions let me know. As long as it's a widescreen dimension I should be able to make it so without losing quality.

    This is simply fabulous! I love how adorable the character looks in-spite of her combat mode XD Awesome composition and color choice, it's very befitting of this rather serious scene. Looks like she's about to embark on something epic!
