Hi everyone, I have submitted a wall finally. (Late) Happy New Year greetings!

I first saw this image and liked it straight away because of the guy's expression, the owl and the overall painted appearance. Upon starting this I was wondering how I was going to show this painted look with vectoring. Luckily I had gained some new skills after my Psycho-Pass wall.

The background turned out to be a more abstract appearance of the sky, a road and mountains - not supposed to be definite shapes but representations. The yellow thing in the top corner I still haven't made sure if it is the sun or the moon... Or if this scene is sunset or sunrise. However I went with sunset as the atmosphere gives me a sense of it being the last sunset and these two characters will be gone after sunset - hence the title and the guys forlorn expression.

I went for a loosely brushed/painted style hence its not supposed to look too smooth but abstract shapes...

    The background has nice color and I like the added golden-orange flowers. It also suits the mood of the wallpaper as well. The owl looks really nice^^ The guy's hair and eyes look nice as well. There's really awesome detail in the guy as well as the owl. The effects throughout the background and around the characters themselves do help give off the effect/feeling that they're fading. Really pretty job Rosu-chan, definite fav :3

    O ho, now you posted it and that was quick. We were just chattin about you fishin' some walls out of your WIP the other day and then BAM! it's done!

    I like the waves at the lower left. You do know how I like your multilayered shading.
    One thing that bugs me is the hair. It kinda looked messy and rushed. I also find the sun a bit edgy...Although, you were aiming for road+mountains, I think the lower right side looked like it got a bit over with all those shapes. For a painted+vectored look feel I do think your Nabari no Ou has achieved it. Thumbnail view looks nice, but fullview looks different though.

    Keep it up! Can't wait the next wall from you.

    Well now! This is interesting! Really enjoying the layered branch effect in the foreground, but I wish there was more depth separating him/the owl from the background. Either by making the bg darker around them, or by giving them richer highlights to set them apart from the sky. Because right now the wall has a pretty constant color tone throughout that kinda blends everything together, so it could use a little more definition.

    well this is nice. I like the brush effects used here, the details to the bird alone is quite remarkable, but the whole entire piece is quite nice. I'm not a fan of brown at all, but somehow you used the right brushes and the right brown for me to like this piece.

    I never comment on any of your walls but I must say that I really, really love them all.
    This one is no exception; Your use of gradients is really becoming perfect and I like the idea of a painted wall with vectoring.
    Please keep up the good work, I can't wait to see more from you :)
