Update 8/30 - Fixed the trees in the background. Took about 6 hours to vector the entire thing. Let me know how it is and if there needs to be any additional changes. I will be looking into adding more to the background for alternative versions, but for now that's how it's going to be.

Whew! I never thought doing a proper vector and then applying it to a wallpaper would take this long.

This is my 3rd vector ever attempted (and my umpteenth wallpaper) with the help of my trainer and wife, Entity1660. With her input (and input of 2 very awesome Minitokyo members through the Sandbox forum), I was able to pump this out in about 3 weeks.

Tons of layers (don't know the exact number as I refuse to count) and many headaches/late nights later the final product is here. The two most difficult parts were deciding how to color this and how to attempt the background. My original background idea was to do a photo album of sorts with the other side of the wall having some hand-written lyrics by me included. Things didn't quite pan out that way so I scrapped it and, with some insight from Entity, I came up with this concept.

I think it works, though I don't think Hinata and Naruto blend in very well. Always room for improvement I say. I pulled the vector idea from the ending credits of Naruto the Last movie. The scene itself was black and white aside from the pink/red-ish color of the flowers on both characters. Feel free to look below.

Some Intersting Facts:

- Researched traditional wedding kimonos and found most are styled white, sometimes base red color depending. Make-up for women in traditional weddings are with the white makeup, however one video I watched from a Japanese Stylist stated that modern-day makeup is fashionable now even in traditional clothing.
- Yes I did use Google Translate for the Japanese. If something isn't right with the wording, please correct me so can fix it on the wall. Thanks!

Taking that into account, that's how I came up with the colors for Hinata's Kimono.

    The vector of Hinata and Naruto looks pretty decent but I am not sure what happened to those trees in the background. It looks like you used a brush and then enlarged it twice its regular size because the tree edges/leaves look very pixelated, jagged and blurry and really take away from the overall crisp and clean quality of the rest of the vectored elements. I'd suggest to either use a better brush (and not enlarge it lol) or vector that background foliage, as well.

    The wallpaper also lacks your signature which is a wallpaper requirement. Walls without it risk the chance of getting deleted...

    Keep it up!

    Much appreciated for the feedback!

    I'm currently working on the tree to eliminate the pixilation. Unfortunately, its going to take a while which sucks.

    The only part I'm baffled about is the "Signature". No where in the policy does it state a signature is required nor does it say it on the "Submit Wallpaper" page. If there is a section where it does say it, please let me know cause its very possible I missed it.

    Hi,

    Echoing Alenas on the tree. It looks really out of place and poor quality when compared to the vector, unfortunately.
    The signature is more of an unwritten rule, to prevent works from being stolen and reuploaded elsewhere (or here).
    I'd also recommend including some pink or blue in the background, to match the characters. Maybe some flowers, curtains, ribbons or other decorations?
    Do you think you can reupload it in 1-2 days? Otherwise I'm afraid it'll have to be deleted.
