Its well made and i like how the BG turned out, great work
Finally! This wall is finish!
My first KHR wall! :D
I started it last year around this time of year, so it's almost one year old wip, lol. Well I vectored the lineart that time and left it. xD
Started coloring it few months ago, then exams came so had to leave it, then few days ago I started continuing it (I didn't had internet so I finished vector in 2 days xD).
I was having problem in painting/vectoring the Akira Amano style hair or coloring in general, that was the reason I left working on it last year. But then I thought of coloring it in my own style + touch of typical Akira amano style. And here it is~
After that, hair came out looking nicely. Vexeling skin was the easiest and most funniest part of it! But I swear smudging those clothes was a b**** experience. Eyes were fun as always, and I actually enjoyed coloring the glove and this headset. But after painting fire most of details in it washed away... :|
I was bit confused about BG, but not having internet made me unable to look for reference, so I searched in my scans folder to see if I've got something good in it. And found this scan. Since Tsuna is already taking so much space plus details so I decided to keep BG minimal without a lot of details (to balance it and preventing to make a crowd in wall). Clouds are just floating steam which were hell to smudge because it crashed my PS for 20 minutes, so had to resize it from 5000xsomething to normal 2560x1600 pixels.Added few stars, and lots of gradients for making the time setting almost night with little wash of sunset.
Painting fire was good too, I used dodge tool for first time in my life. xD But I kinda didn't liked the flames around his glove.
But I noticed a thing after saving it in jpg format, it had lots and lots of jpg artifacts, too much noise. Probably because tons of gradients I've added. So I duplicated and blurred the entire wall and set the opacity to 50%.
It's still not very clean but yeah 50% of it is painted.
So this is how I've finished it, Thanks to Shimazaki-san for motivating me.
All sort of comments, advice suggestions are welcome by me!
Enjoy a KHR wall after a loooooooong time! :DD

Whoa, I haven't seen KHR walls here for a looong time! And I was really surprised when I saw it on the front page! It also really pops out lol!
I think you really nailed Amano's style, love those subtle dusk sepia tones all over the wall and Tsuna's skin and eyes are really pretty. The fire and the embers are nice, too, although I'd personally add some additional circular lighting around that hand and his forehead where the flames are and darken other areas to make the fire lighting pop out even more. But yeah, overall, this looks really nice, glad to see something new made for KHR and from you. Great job! :D

Very nice! I love the quality of the vectoring here, and the soft fiery glow added for lighting.

Damn I missed seeing walls from this series, and with fire! Awesome work on the lighting, everything looks very smooth!

I must say that you nailed the style this time. Seriously, among all your wallpapers, this is the best. I think these types of scan are your forte~ Hope to see more from you.

Agreed about nailing Amano's style; you did an awesome job on that. What I personally like the most on this wall is the hair and the fire. The hair looks very clean and I love the color (pretty much my actual hair color rn). And the fire because it's very difficult to pull off good-looking fire but yours is more that satisfactory. I'd even put even more glow and sparks around it to underline the fiery effect.
Regarding the pixelated BG, yes, it's definitely because of too many filters and/or gradients. Happened to me in the past but I battle it by adding noise onto the area after merging all the separate layers. It helps decrease the pixelation and makes the area a little less flat at the same time.
