Yes, it has been a while. Life has a funny way of bringing me many gifts of agony XD .

Anyway, decided to make another scenery wall - with the winter season in mind, I made it snow. How original :P . When I came across the scan of her while browsing through Minitokyo's Carnelian images (*thanks goes to the submitter of this lovely scan :) ) I immediately thought she looked like she belonged in a peaceful farm-like atmosphere ... this is most likely due to her pigtail braids, clothing, and overall cuteness :) .

This wall is named "Winter Sunrise" for as you can see the girl is emerging from the barn after tending to the animals inside right as the sun begins to rise ... then off to go to one of those overly optimistic happy-go-lucky schools you frequently witness in anime. Or at least that is the little story I came up with to go with this wall.

The setting is obviously on a farm out in it's little corner of the world. The mountains can be seen at a distance while the sun rising sets a gentle glow upon the fresh snow from last night's storm. The snow still swishes through the surroundings and continues to fall while accompanied by the usual morning mist.

Oh yes, I am on a roll XD . Wall was made using brushwork & stock photos. It took me about 6 hours in total ... one of those hours was spent staring at it seeing what was missing though ... meh I'm a perfectionist sometimes. Bleh, making snow textures on the ground is difficult ... I had fun making the footprints though. I think I like those a little too much XD . This would be my second scenic wall ... yay?

On another note ... I recently noticed other sites, being the bandits they were, having my work submitted by others who obviously weren't me. This bothered me a bit ... kinda made me want to stop walling :( . I decided to keep doing it anyway though ... but I swear if I catch anymore of them I'm going to cut their manhood off and feed it to them ... and if they don't have any they will, then I'll ...

*Ahem* How about that? I'm cranky and bothered . Don't poke me or I'll bite you XD .

This wall does make me happy though ... how about you?

    Perfectionist indeed. XD I must say it shows; wonderful attention to detail. I love the sketchy mountains~<3 Adds a lot to that home on the range feel. And the red snow theme (as opposed to blue) adds another unique touch. My favourite element would have to be the 'glowing' trees, though. :) They just look magical.

    Hm, but a bit of crit.. I'd say fade out the footprints that are further away a little bit. Especially since there seems to be a bit of mist around the ground.. and the falling snow would have covered it a touch.

    Anyways! A very fine wall. You've pulled off the illusion of depth extremely well. Great work! It would be a pain, but issues can be resolved. :) I hope you never give up walling.

    By golly, this wallpaper is good. Both the character and background is gorgeous and not to mention attention to details. Straight to my favorite. :D

    p.s. You must be Type A personality which is perfectionist in general.

    Odd that this wallie does feel rather very cheerful instead what the commonality of 'snow' scenic walls. The background is very well done! I love the scan you used!!! Interesting idea to put her in some snowy farm! Thanks for sharing this with us! Keep up the great work! +fav

    Wow, I love this wall so much!! Everything blends so well together. It gives off a surreal feeling. :D You also give great attention to detail, and your landscape is more realistic than most landscape walls. It's really lovely. It definitely has to be part of the faves. :nya:

    Somehow...I think it didn't match...
    The girl much more fit to spring, not winter in uphill village.
