Find on AnimePaper [link] MiniTokyo [link] and BrokenTone [link]

DL for 1920x1200 res.

Note: you may not redistribute this wall to any other sites. Thank you.

OMG this wall has been a WIP since Delilah, but now it’s finally done!
Thanks to Vitaamin, Kitten, Deto, and Asa for your feedback and support throughout its creation. Also, this is my debut wall for Brokentone! Thanks Deto!

It is a reworking of this scan:

I remixed it a bunch, including making one flower pink and her boobs bigger so she wasn’t such a bobble head. XD See the process pic to see how it came to life:

I ended up scrapping my ideas to include a bow on her hair tie and adding a dragonfly or fish, because it seemed busy enough already.

Made in photoshop CS2, lines vectored, everything else is painted using vector masks like how I usually do. It’s interesting how many are using SAI nowadays, but ps still gives fine results I think. ^__^

Stats:
Two brushes used: soft round and airbrush soft round
Main Psd file size (out of three files): 201 mb (combined would be around 250)
Layers: at least 350 on final psd, with some merged layers D:
(opening and saving were a @#$%^)
Painting the leaves was the most annoying part, each one took at least 40 min, and it felt like an assembly line. >.>

Thanks for viewing!

Someone is stealing your art and passing it off as their own. xxsamsonsladexx.deviantart.com…

thank you for your tutorials, well the important part of the art is that working with layers is pretty tiring in the end trying to say etc as the file is huge but there is a plus point as you say that we can scale it and the artwork resolution will be maintained. :D

Yes, that is also a point! To start big and then scale it down later so it looks high-quality. :3 Thank you for the comments!

Are you by chance Kaori Minakami? Cause there's this exact photo on another website timestamped on the same day this one was o_o Actually, yeah...It's defiantly you who uploaded, same icon too. But how come it comes up when I search Kaori Minakami?

Was it Minitokyo or Animepaper? (Check the links in the description) Because yes I uploaded this wallpaper to both those websites too. And no, I am just a fan of Kaori Minakami's artwork, so I have painted this wallpaper based on one of her works to be suitable for desktop use. The reason it comes up under her name is because I have tagged it with her name to credit her for the original artwork. So this wallpaper in particular was made by me, but based on her original: [link]

Minitokyo~ And ah, okay. I was looking her up when I saw that someone stole one of her pieces. Her name and 2006 were on the bottom. I found your pic upon searching her name and was wondering. If you were her, I would've had you bitch the thief out. >__<

Just curious, but could you please link me to this 2006 person too? Art theft happens to wall artists too. I've seen my stuff illegally posted on ebay for instance. :o

unfortunately I forgot I bookmark it like I usually do until it's solved...I posted once and commented on two others within the piece and am hoping for responses. I'll try to find it in the mean time using a keyword or something. I want to report it but I want to find the source of that very picture with the date and everything.

I'd be happy to help, but if not, good luck on your search! It is one of my biggest peeves when someone claims someone else's work is their own.

Found it! And I remembered how...You ever type in "Anime Girl" in devianart's search bar, you get lots of stolen and or heavily referenced pictures...
Here it is: [link]

Ah...I see. Yeah, deviantArt isn't a picture sharing site like that person thinks... >_< Fortunately that pic still has Kaori's copyright on it.
You can try searching Kaori's site here: [link]

Vectoring the lines makes it sharp, while painting the colors makes it soft! :iconilikeitplz:

Ah, lots of layers! Some purple, blue, yellow, red. Multiply, color burn, difference used for shadows. Linear dodge, color dodge, overlay, hard light, linear light, and vivid light used for highlights and areas with strong color. I smudged in a zigzag motion to make the little details in the iris. I also slightly Gaussian blurred it (0.2-0.3 px) and applied an unsharp mask to an applied image of all the layers. :)
