Unraveling Heaven Ah! My Goddess wallpaper by Dalarty :: May 2008
Heyo~ It's been a while since I've last posted... I've been submersing myself into the world of vectoring (with a side job of being a student) but finally... a product of my small hiatus.
I took the original image of Belldandy from a b/w manga scan http://www.animepaper.net/art/39713/belldandy-with-wings used the silk from http://www.animepaper.net/gallery/scans/Ah-My-Goddess/item8517/ as a reference for the silk of night and day that you see covering her wings.
The concept didn't really come to me until the very end, I was originally just playing with coloring and styling black and white images and then I figured I might as well turn the whole thing into a wall.
The birds are revectored as well from the birds in http://www.animepaper.net/art/36828/clover ... and I decided to make them split white and yellow in some parts to show the transition of non-heaven to heaven... the yellow birds representing stars in the heavens.
Anyway, I'll be honest, I like this version of the wall better than the one I'm submitting... but I wanted to go with the more concept related wall for my main feature... but here's my favorite version anyway! <3 http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/144/unravelingheavendayjz9.jpg/
maybe at some point I'll make a night version of this wall as well... we shall see.
I've still got a lot to learn in terms of vectoring... but for now, enjoy~
