This is the first loading screen I made. Cthulhu is my favorite MVP (no idea why), so I was inspired to make him all lovey-dovey for Valentines. I think I did pretty well with the characters, but over-all, this wallpaper lacked texture and depth. I could have added more scales to the Mermaid's fins, or more shadows and highlights, or more details to the undersea background.
Again, because Cthulhu is my favorite MVP, I made another wallpaper with him on it. This time, I experimented on shadows to add more depth, but I'm not really good at it. I think I made it look too cute -- and too plain.
This is probably one of the most time-consuming wallpapers I've ever made -- and from scratch too. I spent a lot of time working on the blacksmith, trying to get as much detail as I can. I think I did fairly well, but I've still got a long way to go. I love how this turned out to be so cutesy, and I also love the concept -- a regular character falling in love with an MVP. LOL. This entry won, and I got an event token for it. Yippee!
Finally, my last entry to the loading screen contest. I spent too much time working on the character (I found it really difficult to build this, I tell you), that I barely had time to work on the background and everything else. As a result, it's too simple, too plain, and too common. I thought this was my best work to date, but I guess it looked as if I didn't pour that much effort on it.
Again, if you're planning to play a mid-rate private server, please do join EssenceRO. It's a pretty balanced server with 3rd jobs and fun quests. And the community there is very helpful. Just drop by and PM my character, Anabelle Rama. =)
