Did you really paint this, or did you take a screencap and apply filter(s) to it?

cap > tablet > brushing/painting > photoshop (coloring) > filters (well, actually only one filter) ......

doesnt take that much time, ~ 30 minutes +/- ,

So I think it's in the wrong category. :shrug: "All users should be aware that the submission of plain or “cleared off” third party wallpapers, altered or edited video game screenshots, and still frames from television programs or motion pictures will be considered violations of our copyright policy. Likewise screenshots consisting solely of official video game artwork, artwork ‘found’ on other websites and any other material created by another artist will also be removed from this section as violations of our copyright policy if they do not possess the characteristics of a valid desktop screenshot as described above." I'm not sure where it should go, to tell the truth, just where it shouldn't ^^;
And tbh, not really. I'd consider photomanipulation -that's the best I can come up with- a means to an end, that is, you try to convey a message or a feeling. This certainly is a cool effect but I'm not quite sure what mood or point you're getting at. If you had painted it, that'd be different. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh D:

hmm...... as far as it being a screenshot, and copy rights applying to that, I dont think so. This is nothing like the base template which was a screenshot. The only thing of the original that might be present would be the colors in the window in the background, as for the remainder, not a single line, color or pixel is from the original.

As I clarified, its a digital method I use sometimes which is akin to tracing a drawing by placing a thin paper over it, the difference is, I dont use paper or tracing, I do it digitally.

So, this piece, started with everything I painted digitally, and I only kept the colors in the window in the back, because they looked beautiful.

I still think the category applies, it wont be a 100% fit but then my method is a personal discovery, a label for which I dont think I would find here except may be mixed media or something, which doesnt clarify the method the artist might have used. This chosen category however reflects that more aptly, in my opinion that is. :)
