I just thought that this screenshot was pretty nice xD... Ended up vectoring outlines + base colors, then I painted within the base colors. The background was mostly vector shapes with gradient. The bookshelf I used gradient+bevel.

To make it simpler
Vector - Character outlines, base colors, and background
Painted - Arata (the character), using the base colors as a mask

Currently on a different computer, so if the colors are a bit odd, please tell me.

    I like the colors and the vector - it's clean and crisp but also soft and pretty. Nice job! :)

    Wow, what a great wallpaper! I LOVE Arata! The wallpaper looks almost dream-like, or perhaps like waking from a dream. The colors are so soft and sweet. :D
