A promotional wallpaper for Simple-ism's Inspiration Project. What inspires you? When you look at that blank canvas, what gets you started? Is it another wallpaper? Is it a commercial design? Is it another art style? Is it music? Simple-ism's Inspiration Project invites you to examine what inspires you, and to create wallpapers in tribute of them. I had actually scanned in this image from HachiKuro manga v6 a week or so before I began talking with Flyin' about this project, but it fit so well. (Originally it was going to be a tribute to overcoming artist's block.) Hagu staring at a blank canvas - a whole row of oversized canvases. It's intimidating, and yet she manages to find the drive to create beautiful works of art. I decided to color the outlines a darker shade of the base color instead of a dark near-black shade to keep the image light and maintain the pastel palette. After fiddling with the background arrangement, I decided not to put in all the other items in the room (paint buckets, ceiling lights, cloth-draped tables) to keep the focus on Hagu.
