Artist Comment

It was very simple, I used only the basic tools of photoshop.
First step: I created a gradient in four shades of blue for the background.
Second step: I used the brush (Round Watercolor) to the mountains, trees and grass hill.
Third step: For the grass highest ultilizei the brush (Dune Grass) and (Grass) for the creeping.
Fourth step: The lake used the brushes (chalk and charcoal large smear) over a gradient layer in various shades of blue. I used the (smodge Tool) to spread the colors and make the surface more like a lake.
Fifth step: I created three layers with different colors to make the fireflies.
Step Six: I worked with the render (Hue / Saturation) - (Brightness / Contrast) and (Gradient Fill) into the shadows. put a light globe in the hand that is the "fairy".
Seventh step: put the typography and signature. I wanted something discreet, do not know if I could. But I liked the end result.
Eighth step: With the (Pen-Tool) I created the house, and the mill wheel.

PS: Go down other versions.

    Wow, I'm loving the lighting on the foreground, especially the girl's face! The fireflies are also a nice detail which give the scene an even more "natural" feel, particularly because you paid attention to depth and made all the bugs vary in size. I'd normally like a more detailed foreground (the trees in front), but the style works well here and I personally have no complaints about your decision to go for silhouettes.

    On the topic of lighting, I think the sky needs a bit more work to look great: for once, it looks empty compared to the rest of the scene, so adding a few thin, wispy clouds may correct that. However, you can argue that the sky isn't always cloudy, which is true ^^". In this case, try making it a bit darker, since it's supposed to be an almost-night scene. Secondly, it looks like there's a giant spotlight behind the mountain on the right and an additional source of light on the left. Since this scene takes place somewhere in nature, arguably far away from a city, the sky should be a lot darker and the only light should come from the moon - which, judging by how strong the light here is, should be a full moon - and (less) the stars.

    There are also a few JPEG artifacts and stretch marks on the mountains on the right, but that can be fixed by saving with higher quality settings.

    Overall this is a pretty good work and makes for a good desktop; it's spacious without being empty, colorful without hurting the eyes and calming without being boring. You've got a good sense of lighting and I look forward to seeing more walls from you :) Good job!

    Yes, I agree with most of what you said, my dear.
    Think about making some changes. Then post as other versions. ;D
    Thank you for the critique, I just loved it. It was very constructive.


    Thanks for the +fav...*--*

    I saw a mistake...and it's...typo from confusion. Understandable but I suggest you fix it asap!
    Fairy Tail is an anime, it is a Fairy Tale when you talk about fantasy. Just want you to correct you on this because it is a disaster when you have like...grammar mistakes on something important! Very understandable, I have seen people make the same mistake but...first time on a wallpaper with you >.<

    May I ask what the render is from? Did you make it yourself? I wonder...it would be nice for reference and tag purposes. The render is very well-blended in the back/fore-ground. Gotta make love with lighting for that...

    Overal, I love the shades of blue. Very nice choice to simplify the dark background in that way. Haven't really thought about doing that but...it really fits. I like it =P

    Great work! I like the simplicity of this piece ^^ .. It's not overdone and it's very pleasant and calming for someone who wants to relax and take a glimpse at their desktop~ ^^ .. I really like your second version of the piece. Its colors make the piece slightly more balanced and the scenery more believable [blue is slightly bright on the original on MT]. Good job!
