This is for tobyf because I was a long time I promised to draw something or him, and also because I admire his works.

I’m very proud of this wallpaper, because I spent a lot of time to make it ^ ^

Contrary to my other arts, I wanted to avoid adding too many details in this one. My goal was to create a calm and peaceful atmosphere. I managed to make it thanks to the white and pastel pink color and the font used. I was inspired by Tobias’ site, which is simple, small but pleasant to visit. However I also added some colored rectangles, I couldn’t help it ^^;

As for the character … I’m sure you adore this little furry like I love it #^^# The lines look very smooth with beautiful curves because I used Adobe Illustrator, a vector program, to draw the character. The colors were made with The Gimp and I used the same gradient technique than my previous art “Amisay W.04”. Contrary to my thoughts it was very easy to draw Tobias like this… and I got more experience with the gradient technique after drawing him.

…he looks like a little chocolate seal! Yum yum n_n

This is a 800x600 wallpaper; I have also a bigger resolution version but I will not submit it cuz this current one suits very well for users who have a 1024x768 screen resolution (choose the “centred” option and add a white border when you choose the wallpaper of your desktop) Please try it! I’m sure you’ll not regret it!

merci ^^ je voulais créer l'impression de légèreté dans l'image. le fond je l'ai chopé sur le net: c'était un gros bloc bleu d'iceberg bien massif fait en 3D, et moi j'ai appliqué un petite colorisation en rose et j'ai augmenté la transparence.

Oh mais ya pas de copyright sur le font ? T'as pas peur que le dessin soit supprimé ??

j'ai envoyé un mail à l'auteur, et si il veut pas, ben ça fait rien, je prendrai une image d'iceberg libre de droit.

De toute façon je ne vois pas pourquoi l'auteur refuserais... :)
Mais si il refuse, ça veut dire que tu vas supprimer l'image ou juste la changer ?

That's one beautiful wallpaper Amisay! ^^ J'adore petit Toby! Hehehe ^^' Je vais 'fave' this one :3 (I don't know how you'd say that)...but it means :+fav:

:giggle: I like the combination of bright colours on toby, and the pastel background :3 It's a good contrast! This also happens to be one of the nicest wallpaper's I've seen in a long while :)

Ah ^_^ The second one must mean "I put it in my faves?" (if translated directly). So... "ajouter" is "to add" ^^; ? Sorry I ask too many questions :3 :giggle: ...but those pronouns are evil! *points at them* :rofl:

Awww a little plushie for me!! :heart: ^^ He's so cute!

thank you for your nice comment and the fave #^^# *blush and gives you a toby plushie*

to reply to your question we usually say in french "Je l'ajoute dans mes favoris" ("I add it to my faves") or "Je le mets dans mes faves". Yes we use some English words sometimes.

You sucessed in creation the perfect atmosphere you were trying to achieve. I am.. amazed with how you were able to make the background seem so calming with a single ice block picture. [Or an iceburg. I think that is what they are called..]

how you made a purple color bar for his name was... amazing! It makes this wall paper seem so professional! I happen to also enjoy how you colored in Toby here [To let you know, he looks more like a Caramel seal than a chocolate one. xP]

Still, every color works together here so elegantly because they are light pastel colors [Like purple, and light lavender!] I am just... well... WOW. Great job on this!!
