"...you gotta put up with the rain."
-- Dolly Parton
So, our school is having a poster sale, and I happened upon this one: here
I really liked the quote, and it reminded me of This Deviation
, so I decided to try to make a wallpaper out of it. The umbrella part was easy, didn't take too long to vector, the part that took the longest was deciding on a background. I debated on whether to use a vector-based one or brush-based one. I didn't want to go too complicated with the background, so I ended up using gradients and textures instead. Textures are from [link]
At first the umbrella was supposed to be flat colour, but I started playing around with textures and blend modes, and added some highlight with a soft brush, and decided I liked this version better.
Layers: about 25 (?)
I put the quote on the umbrella as well, I'm not sure if whether I like it better with it or without it. I think it'd look cleaner without it, but for some reason I can't bring myself to take it out either :/
