The basic picture is from candy-chan -
Hotaru no Haka poster

I really like this movie. I own DVD so i decide one day make wallpaper for this sad anime movie.

This time i make first the plane and bg befor the two characters. I make first the mist and stars with basic brush and then i aded to another layer lines for the plane. I marked the in lines with magic wand tool. Marked the mist layer and delete the marked area. Grass are free brushes from deviant art with different colors.
All lines make i with Ilustrator, also lines for shadows. With Photoshop i aded colors, some shadows with round brush to skins and cloth. On another layer basic shadows. The final pictures is duplicated and on first pic i aded "multiply" I cant hep mysefl but with bright colors seems to me better then with pale colors.

For next two weeks i will post more walls. I am on holiday now and i can complete all my unfinished works FINALLY! :)

    Major issue that needs to fix is the plane, you placed airplane's layer below the stars! I can see stars on airplane too!
    And then color of wallpaper, I mean Background is in "sepia" tone, and characters have color, with no blending of foreground (aka characters) and background. And those fireflies are orange/brown in color xD And also there is no "glow" of fireflies here, you can use ready made firefly brushes if you want or, just use soft round brush with 100% opacity and add outerglow layer style on that layers with 40-60% opacity. In dark night glow of fireflies looks so beautiful believe me!
    Composition wise, it is also weak. In College we've thought that center focused main focal point in art work is weak because it doesn't let our eyes some movement to gaze our whole area of work. Of course some artworks are exception.
    I would really loved the wallpaper if you had used blueish tint of colors instead of orange-brown.

    But I noticed a step up in your vectors so good job on that!
    Looking forward to your new walls!

    I love this movie too. The characters are amazing in your wall. I do agree that the airplane should not have stars in front of it. Other than that, keep doing great work!
