For my full rambling description, read here. I’m not going to summarize this.

This is a wallpaper which almost completely deviated from the original idea while I was doing it. I was supposed to take a break after my last AMR wallpaper; in the end, this wall got me so energized that I went ahead and finished it.

This is my first wallpaper that I really tried to paint. Prior to this I was always painting as if I were vectoring. I was inspired by speed painting videos I found on youtube.

Now Orochi is supposed to be messy and the likes, and I know the “poison” head looks like he got a broken nose...fine, Orochi looks blurry. But never mind. I’m very happy with how the whole wall turned out, from the flames outside, to the sketchy ground, to the messy Orochi and the sakura petals flying out. As per my style, I oversaturated the colours, so you get extremely dark corners and a rather aged gold middle of the torii, but seriously, I’m not going to change anything about that. I’m done fighting with myself over colour saturation. I love it oversaturated. I like to emphasize the blacks.

The total number of layers is 293. It’s surprisingly small, considering that this was supposed to be one of my mega projects. Well, that’s all. Like I said, I already have the full description in my journal :D

    I just love your wallpapers. They always have such a dynamic background. True love to Ammy. Even though, this is really well executed (again, like the other). I'm not sure about the lighting on Ammy. I know it should be reddish because of what's outside but perhaps it is too much compared to the bright and flourished part behind her? For the rest...love it :3

    Wow, just wow. This is so full of power and action. Doesn't matter if anything is blurry; I think it creates a feeling of motion and adds to the dynamism of the wall. And I like the colors oversaturated, too. After all, there's a lot of fire and fire always burns in saturated colors. The whole wall is outstanding, and you obviously worked hard on it. No wonder this got elited almost immediately.
