Sadness and hope by Sbabman Sadness and hope by Sbabman
This wall take me more time than expected (I'd say about 25-30 hours). The idea came after seeing episode 7 of "Angel Beats!" 'cause I like this moment where Kanade let the butterfly go, so I took a snaptshot and go to work.
First I've vectored Kanade from this pic [link] and then Otonashi from Scampi's scan [link] .
After that, doing the BG was hell for me. The sky is the one of that picture [link] vectorize and with some effects. The flower field have been made with the help of that pack [link] but I had to modify them a lot.
To finish, I've put them together, modify the lights and colors, add some shadows and it's over =)

Programs used: mostly Gimp (98% of the work), but also Photofiltre
Easiest part: Otonashi
Hardest part: that damn flower field ^^

Thanks to my "walling-master" Clover [link] , without her advices this wall would been such a crap x)

If you have comment / critiques about what you like or dislike, let me know, I'll be pleased to learn =)

Hey i realized right now, is that feather in Otanashi's hand reference to AIR anime?
Reply
:iconsbabman:
Sbabman Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011
Er... no ^^
It is much more simple: Just look at the wall's name:
Otonashi catch the feather: Sadness (I can't explain why because I don't want to spoil, but if you've seen the entire anime you'll understand)
Kanade release the butterfly: Hope (it's a common symbol of hope, releasing a bird, a butterfly, etc...)

Hope you'll not be disapoint by such a simple explanation ^^

(but BTW, I like Air as well as others Key's works =) )
