Woot. Ok first off I'd like to thank all the people at Minitokyo's IRC channel who gave me suggestions, tips and comments on this wallpaper during its work in progress :).

To the wallie: well you can see it, it's a very cliche one with a scenery background and a cutie... the funny thing is that when I started drawing this it was very different and it had a total different scan, so it really went through a lot of retouching and re-editing XD. Everything has been drawn (sky, clouds, trees, wall) while the bench was re-traced and re-cged from a stock photo.

Last some info for the nerds XD: 63 layers, and about 12 total hours spent in 2 days.


[Edit] following everybody's input I've worked more on the girl and managed to remove the azure glow, I've also retouched her hair to blend it better.
[Last Edit] allright lol I've enlarged the wall and the bench and retouchedn again the girl, thanks MadWiz and einna for the input :)

    Wow, so beautiful wallpaper, I love the bg, the color is very nice and the girl looks pretty. Nice job, a fav for your work :)

    wow nice ShinN, nice texture, the bg is just amazing, your artisitic taste is very well fine tone my I say. The scenery is just so good, it does drop my jaw when I first saw it, the blending of the girl fits the mood of your bg. Very good choice on your theme, nice execution on your wallie. I can't believe you draw the tress and the clouds, very nice job ShinN.

    nice background, indeed! I think you could clean the scan a bit, since I'm seeing a few fuzzes on her left-hand. But the overall background is really impressive. imho. anywyas, thank for sharing and keep it up

  4. einna Apr 06, 2005

    I love it! But I think the girl is too tall for the bench and the wall behind the bench. You know..XD Uhmm... the colors are good. Green, blue and white.. nice! Everything's fine!^______^

    Interesting! The background looks great, I like the trees a lot and awesome bench. The text is elegant too. I think the image should have been worked on a lot more. Both the extraction and the quality is poor. I'm not sure if there is a glow around her or not, but if there is it might look better without.

    Wonderful color balance.
    The only thing that bugs me is the brown branches that show through the leaves on the trees. They look kinda unatural. In a couple of places the green leaves look like they have brown mold...
