I really had no direction with this wallpaper..... Rather, while I was vectoring, I was thinking... The style of this manga seems more suited to flat and stylish o.o.... So I wasn't even sure if painting was a good idea... I went with it anyways and the result turned out like this lol.

Aside from vectoring the outlines for Naoto, everything was pretty much painted. Since I had no idea what to do with the background, I thought that fire would be the best I could think of considering the scene of the manga.

I started painting random silhouettes of what random stuff there would be in the background, and eventually while stroking around they became shapes.

Then I was at a loss at how to do the flames... I just one of the given brushes in photoshop and started messing with the settings and tried to make it flame like while I was painting. I resorted to using the smudge to make it more flame like. This part made my hand hurt... really badly lol... Tried switching hands for a few minutes to let my hand get a break lol.

The random structures looked... oddly fine when it should be burning lol... So I added black burning parts to the structures.

I felt that Naoto doesn't seem to stand out much while being overwhelmed by everything else lol.... Since the scene seemed pretty epic and naoto looks fairly concentrated, I decided to make a glow that emphasizes her killing intent.

Then I added vague smokes in the remaining sky visible.

Overall.. This wallpaper is random and chaotic... But I tried lol.

Add one alternative version blue
Added two alternative versions with more ember flying and no glow. As suggested by alenas
Last alternative -more embers + no glow + modified front flame colors.

    Now, this is what I'd call 'cold fire', lol - I can tell there's fire all around her but the whole setting is so monochrome-ish and cool which actually works well since it fits with the overall mood and feeling of the series.

    I think I prefer the original, red version more, simply because it really brings out the image of ruins and chaos more than the blue one. If I'd have to crit something, then I'd suggest adding more flying embers around her perhaps to increase that feeling of fire burning around her, it looks a bit too 'timid' like now, lol. That glow around her also looks a bit out of place but I'm not sure what to say to improve it. On another note, the vector of Naoto is very good, I love the way you did her hair.

    Overall, nice job and keep it up! :)

    WOW this is a OMG different type of DOGS wallpaper! It's been a while since I last saw one!

    The thumbnail really attracted me to it because there is this cool, dark mood I like the hair as well as the dress. I prefer the original one better also!

    Just a question... from what chapter is the original scan? I've been DLing DOGS manga but I think I didn't come across this scene....

    Really like the dark coulrs in this peice...and the title an't half bad either. Over all I like the grungy feel of the wallpaper. I thank you for all your hard work and vectoring and continue the good work....

    I can see how this got elited, I rather like this one, it's like hard to tell where the fun ends and the seriousness begins. you did a good fill in with the fire, and unable to decide you did well. I rather like this piece, well done.

    I think I've seen something you've gone lazy on, but it's very noticable once you look at it for a while. So, you've put a lot of shading in the lighter parts of the character...I'm missing shading in the darker parts. It looks really off as just a blunt piece of shading splashed on her. You might want to make that part a little bit better (chest area, neck, sleeves, sword mostly...hair part doesn't really bother me).

    My only complains...for the rest, I am loving the background. The flames are wonderful. The way you did her hair reminds me of artists that made wallpapers before. I don't really see much of them these days. The blue version...I think the flames should be a less bit blue-ish. It takes away the beautiful contrast of colours, aswell as depth.

    It's good to see some of the people that didn't really stood out to have improved quite a lot. I hope to see more of your work in the future!

    The shading looks a bit off in certain areas and the flames need a bit more "life"/color to them. Other than that the vector of Naoto is really nice and I like how her hair looks^^
