My entry for Your Blue Eyes Only contest.

This wall has been a pain >_>

I had the insane thought of doing an original art even if I don't own a graphic tablet (yeah, I use just a mouse). First version was horrible, I don't like it at all. So I played with colors balance, saturation and contrast. As last step I smudged almost everything with smudging tool and filter. It turned out weird, but it's a bit better compared to the first one, imo.

The most hard part has been hair: them gave me a lot of issues. I tested different methods for colorization, but smudging brushes them seemed gum-ish -.- without smudging them seemed fabric -.- as last attempt I used smudged paths. Here you can see part of my WIP.

Clouds are layers made with a smudged Photoshop brush (the 'leaves scattered' brush).

Character is vectored following my sketch as guideline for linearts. I got inspiration for hairstyle and pose from this photo.

    Heh, I understand the pain of using a mouseā€¦I only got a tablet last year. I commend you on keeping everything so clean and neat! The hair is gorgeous and I love the swirls. I wish there was a bit of subtle shading above the lip where the philtrum would be as the rest of the face is shaded more towards stylized realism. I definitely prefer the version you have instead of the first version as well; the eyes pop out a lot more!

    I always love mono-themed walls with a splash off color on the eyes. This is probably your best wall yet! Definite fav and to think it was done with a mouse is just... wow! O_O
