Change your Fate by PhotonLights Change your Fate by PhotonLights
Edit: Scanned version, much better quality :)

COLORED VERSION: [link]

AAAH IT'S FINALLY DONE!
This took forever, I've never done a bg like this before and it was hard work but I really love how it came out! Also I've never done wood texture before and I've heard it's hard but it actually wasn't, I really had fun doing it :) So yeah this was a challenge for me with all the different textures and lighting but I think I pulled it off XD. I'm trying to improve with each drawing I think it's working XD.
So yeah enjoy! And I'd really like to hear what you think so if it's not too much trouble go ahead and leave me a comment :)

Also I love this movie!! The characters, the story, the music, it's all really awesome you should watch it if you haven't!

Tools used: A4 paper, mechanical pencil, HB2 and 8B pencils, eraser and kneaded eraser.
I upped the the contrast and changed the levels a bit in ps cs3.

Amazing, could easily be a black and white still of the film. As much as I like color, I really appreciate great b/w pencilwork like this. It is a special gift to communicate this much life even without colour :)
