This is the last old wallpaper I'm submitting here. I think I've caught up with my best/favorite walls. :)
/done spamming the new wallpaper gallery

This one will always be my all-time favorite. I love Haibane Renmei; it's such a meaningful series. <3 And this was one of my most successful walls I made...it even has a SSS rating over on AP. :D Funny how I'm only submitting walls here that I've mainly used my tablet for. XD This is another one. This is the original scan that I repainted. I didn't vector any of this...I just used my tablet and sketched over everything essentially. :3 That's because I wanted to fit the style of the original art...so yeah, I repainted her, and then I got the idea to have the crow there since crows play such a big part in Haibane. This wall is so old, the link to the photo I used as reference for the crow no longer exists. XD But basically I Googled crows, picked one, and painted it. The bg I remember having so much trouble with, but the wonderful andrea (Vitaamin) helped me out with that. She showed me how to create awesome lighting to make it really look like sun shining through a forest. : )

So yeah. <3 Enjoy~

    Wow, this looks so pretty^^ The background is nice, I think it really suits the wall and gives it a nice atmosphere; the lighting also gives the wall an overall warm, happy kinda feeling. I really love the way you painted Rakka, especially the detail with her face, hair and eyes. Very nice work :)

    Hmm……I'm a fan of sketchy lines but I think you could make each stroke longer so that they flow a little better, and I prefer painting that is less smudged. But otherwise the atmosphere is quite pleasant. Nice job.

    Ahhh i remember this wall from AP!
    This is certainly one of your better walls! Those colors blend nicely to create a lovely atmosphere.
    Good to see it submitted here! (Finally) XD

    I remember seeing this on AP a long time ago, even before I became a member, but because it's one of your older wallpapers, I never knew that you were the one who created it. I have to agree - this is one one of your best. It certainly deserved every bit of attention over at AP, and I can't wait to see all of the love it'll get here. I love your painting style in wallpapers, and that style and how it was executed here, to me is perfection. The lighting, the atmosphere, the composition - so fantastic, I've got to use it as a desktop.

    Thanks for sharing it on MT! :)

    One of my all time favorites from you, definitely - not just because of the nice repainting, but because of the overall mood and feeling behind the wall. Thanks for sharing it with us here, too! :3

    I don't remember what I said when I first commented on this, but it looks even more amazing after all this time.
    And it's one of my fave wallpapers of yours as well, jsyk <3

    Oh how I love this. It's still one of my favorites mainly because it really gives off a nice feeling, that and the sketchiness.
    Nice to see it here too
