Strange and Beautiful by subtlewhisper Strange and Beautiful by subtlewhisper
DOWNLOAD FOR FULLSIZE.

Not entirely sure about the time taken for the making of this wallpaper. The lineart took me maybe 3 hours, and then coloring the girl 2-3 hours, and then background 2-3 hours, and then several hours correcting errors...

This is a mix of a vector and digital painting.

Vector traced from this scan: [link]
I changed the eyes a bit so they are not exactly like in the original scan.

Background is made completely from scratch, but I had two stocks as reference: [link] and [link]

Textures used and credit: [link] [link] [link]

You can download the "friendly" croppable version here: [link] but please do not claim this as your own and do not upload this elsewhere without my permission.

Title is taken from the song "Strange and Beautiful" by Aqualungs. GO LISTEN TO IT! ♥

Btw if it's not obvious, she's standing ON the roof. :|

Character is Nil from the manga Dogs: Bullets & Carnage, neither belongs to me. :)
