So, as my first Ao no Exorcist wallpaper was quite a success, I decided to make another one.

There are a few AnE scans here on MT with the festival theme which I chose for the wall. I used parts of this scan and this scan and combined them together because I wanted to have all the characters in the wall. I drew the missing parts together with the background by myself. This time there are no screenshots, I fabricated almost everything in Photoshop, using the scans as a basis.

The problem is that I don't know much about Japanese festivals so I simply had a look at some photos on the Internet and tried to draw some similar kiosks. I did my best to make them look as realistic as possible. Ehm, I actually have no idea what the writing on the middle one means, I just found a writing like that on one of the photos so I used it here to fill the space. Hope it's something meaningful and to the topic...

The clouds in the sky are original, I took a picture with my own camera, edited the image, darkened it and used a few filters so that it would look like it is night. All textures used are from Photoshop and the beautiful firework brushes used in the BG are from Obsidian Dawn.

The greatest part was coloring the kimonos/yukatas which I really enjoyed. The worst was the hair (as always). I simply hate coloring hair... I wasn't sure about the overall toning, I wanted to keep the mood of the festival with all the light coming from the lanterns but I think that the orange lighting just doesn't fit with the dark blue sky. :/

I know, it's not perfect and I'll gratefully accept any critique and advice for improvement ^^

.....

Now, the real reason for making this wall? Well, I just HAD TO make use of the pic with Mephisto in that yukata...

    I definitely believe AnE needs more wallpapers and this is another really nice wall from you.^^ The vectoring and colors are very good. The night sky and fireworks definitely fit the mood of a festival and are a very nice touch. Suguro's being his typical kinda grouchy self over there pouting, sorta XD Mephisto makes me giggle the way he's standing up there on top of that stall xD Another very good wall, keep it up :)

    I must say that you did a wonderful job here! Nice placement of the characters and great use of the scans, and the way you drew the rest the wall is fantastic. The vector is very well done and Mephisto looks awesome in yukata, I agree xD My only complain are the clouds, the photo idea is really good but I don't think they fit with the rest of the wall. Also the light of the far left cloud is wrong, since the moon and fireworks are at the other side. Still you did a great job! +fav and keep it up! :)

    I always love your wallpapers! This, as the first one, is really nice too. Keep up the good job!

    Haha, mephisto in that yukata... XD
    Everything is put together very nicely again.. Always loved the festival scans. One thing I would pick on is the red stand on the left- the red overhangs(?Im not sure what they are called..) with the orange outlines stands out a lot because of the thick lines. You should have made them look more fabric/realistic like the yellow stand next to it. But other than that the wall is great! :D Keep it up!

    I love how hard you're suddenly working on these walls, it's one heck of a change
    from what you were doing before.
    I have a few things I want to point out, first would be the lanterns; they look
    as if they're going into the sky. You should've kept it more parallel, actually you could've
    used the booth's top line as a guide for that.
    The orange is nice, don't worry about it; they're typically that color :)
    I would've really loved to see the firework glow on both the front characters;
    since right now it just looks like they're looking at nothing and super happy about it.
    Adding that glow would've really got them more involved with the wall's atmosphere.

    That aside I really adore your combining of scans and all the work
    you did to make this look so clean and crisp. It definitely looks like a scan but with
    awesome quality, wonderful job.

    Again, great job with combining the scans! I'm so glad you decided to make another AnE wall^_^ I can see that you put a lot of effort into doing it and I really love the outcome XD my, so many charcters again! and yeah... Mephisto rocks! awesome, keep it up! love your style! \(^o^)/

    Nice combination again. Added to favs. Cheers

    Oh and did you draw lower part of Shiemi and Izumo bodies? Its looks good, the scan only show their upper body.

    Wow, it all fits perfectly together!
    Beautiful work. :D

    Great job! It's amazing to see how far you evolved since the first wallpaper I saw from you! It looks absolutely amazing! To think you achieve this set up from those two scans shows the work you invested in this! Awesome!
