Hello WORLD! Pretty late but Happy New Year ^.^
Wah, so nostalgic to type a wallpaper description *teary eyes*, it has been a year I think, or more... anyway, a long time XD I sincerely thought of giving up walling to be honest, I just don't have any time now because of my studies... duh... but seeing people actively posting wallies suddenly made me want to do something x3
Sooo, I am a huge fan of this series. There aren't many wallies of Tamako Market, so I just had to contribute XD seriously :P I hope there will be more contributions in the future ;)

Scan :
Tamako Market#657319

Well, this wallpaper took me... a long time, about 20 hours I guess. I don't have my super buddy Photoshop by my side anymore *in despair* so I tried a new software, it's kind of cool, but since I haven't done any vector, nor wallies for about a year, dude that was a challenge. Still tired now. The difficulty was... the lineart... I have never done lineart directly with the brush with my tablet, too accustomed with the super pen tool. But after hours and hours of terrible battles, I finished it. Sorry guys, it's my first time so the lineart sucks here XD
Moving on... Coloring, shading, everything went smoothly
(not really because I am clueless about how to shade properly... *coughs*)
until I encountered my worst nightmare... the background. I suck at doing backgrounds, so logically I suck at doing trees XD *ba dum tss*
Anyway, I searched for a cool scan to save my incompetence, and I found a gem :


Special thanks for that scan, really saved me :D
I fell in love with the sky. it has that romantic feeling in it so... I cropped the scan, painted over it to arrange it to my wallie and then some adjustments ;) then added the bokeh, and voila!
That's pretty much it (not really, it took me several couples of hours but I don't think you would want to read a dissertation about that here XD)

The alternative versions are : one WITHOUT BOKEH, another one less pink (pink can be tiring for eyes XD beware of pink! nihaha)

You can breathe now, I finished talking XD I hope you guys will like my work, and I would be really thankful for any feedback, it really helps :D and it makes me happy, too.
Ciaaoo ( ~.o)/ ~♥

    I actually think the thumnail looks lovely. There are quite a few technical issues here but it looks great nevertheless.

    The lighting and soft colours are lovely. The hearts are nice too and well..the pose/scene fits perfectly. The hearts really set the mood along with the facial expressions. They do look a bit too repeated and mirrored too much. Some more variation would have done better. The sky in the background..how much I love the sight of it almost being dark and yet not. It would be better if you put a few visible stars in the lighter area. Although, it is lighter there, stars are still visible but in a less amount. Kind of like a gradient you see? The background looks good, although I am not sure whether to agree with the wall/windows not having outlines and the tables do. Then there is the vector of the two. Lovely done. Blends in nicely but! I think you should use different colours of outlines. Black really looks too hard here and it is not preferred for vectors in general either. Great work though.

    + fave

    Looks nice, the color of the outlines at some points like the skin could be more brown but overall it is a nice wallpaper
