Artist Comment

A wallpaper made for a Minitokyo Autumn Contest. Theme of contest was to use a certain palette of six colors to create a wallpaper. Generally it was allowed to use various tones of those colors as well as grayscale, but to keep things interesting I decided to use only those 6 colors :)

wubs, second place :O

Well, aside from a small gradient between 2 of them that made me feel more mushy when looking at it :3

Details of contest - http://forum.minitokyo.net/t73348
Original scan - Akaringo#618336

For fauna and flora, I used the scan above, as well as other scans made by Akaringo. I originally wanted to include parrot but it didn't really worked, so I vectored hummingbird from some photo, trying to match it in style.

I hope you like it :)

    Yay you finished! I'm really liking the minimal style you chose for this and I think the colors from the contest worked out really well too. :3 I'm glad you added the music notes too, it just seemed incomplete without them!

    o.o looks so nice, I totally love the solid shadows *o* it makes it look so dark, also like how you managed to use only those colors and make it look so lively :3

    I'm very amazed what a good wallpaper could make with such a limited ammount of colors and even completly excluding the use of black and white from it. Dear neighbor, teach me sometimes a few tricks if you get the time.
