City Nightlife by MapleRose City Nightlife by MapleRose
Phew, finally finished.

Reasons I did this:
1. I got a duel-screen setup at work, and wanted a duel-screen wallpaper (those are so rare...)
2. I wanted to play around with Open Canvas :D

Anyway, in case you don't know, this is the skyline of Toronto Canada ^__^ . I vectored the basic outline of the city from a photo found via Google, extended the city 'cause the photo wasn't wide enough, then exported into Open Canvas 4.06 and painted the whole thing from scratch with the watercolour tool (<3), using a couple of reference pictures.

Doing the buildings one by one was tedious x_x ... so was doing the lights, but that was kinda fun at the same time... now my arm hurts... you can see at the edges is where I kinda gave up on perspective ^_^' ... and I don't like the reflections either DX

Download for the zip file with other resolutions (including single-display):
3200x1200
2560x1024
1920x1200
1600x1200
1280x1024

PSP8, Open Canvas 4.06, mouse, lots of hours...

Edit: Tutorial on how to paint the city lights

Hi! I was wondering if I might have your permission to print your image on a single t-shirt? Thanks for considering, Nancy
