EDIT: I've made some minor changes to the first version (thanks Oli-chan - sweetdevil - and Ellen, for your wonderful constructive feedback!)/EDIT

Yet another challenge entry! But it's a wallpaper this time...xDrnFor Kiba051095's challenge 'Let the music guide you.' I was very inspired by this challenge:3 At first I didn't really know which song I'd choose because I know so many beautiful songs, but I decided on 'Start swimming' by Delain^^ I'll add the lyrics (and a link to the song:3) at the bottom of the description=)

Before you ask - I made the background myself! Yup, drew it all^-^ I hope I managed to get it to look realistic-ish but still fitting in the manga/anime style:3 I did some minor editing on the original Sakura pic, too - she looked rather angry in the original pic, but I wanted her to look frightened so I changed her eyebrows:3 And made the whole pic darker of course, to fit the rest of the wallie^__^ (By the way, 16:10 resolutions look best! Had to resize it for the 1024x768 :3)

Feedback is very much appreciated!

Done in: Photoshop 6.0 with pen tablet
Time taken: about 1.5 hours:3
Original pic: Sakura
Dedicated to: Kiba051095, for hosting the challenge^^

And here are the lyrics:3
Start swimming

I'm waiting for another day
I'm waiting for the clock to reach the six and twelve
Waiting for a holiday
I'm waiting for myself

I'm waiting for another day
I'm waiting for the clock to reach the six and twelve
Waiting for a holiday
I'm waiting for myself

And all I seem to hear is stop, stop
I'm catching up on you
Don't leave me here behind
I can't see a soul out here, it's dark, dark
I'm catching up on you

And all I wonder is why
(Why do I try to start running)
Why?
(What am I running for?)

D'you remember why we started running?
D'you remember why we're running at all?
If I dared I'd choose to swim but it's safer on the shore
D'you remember why we started running?
D'you remember why we're running at all?
I would die to get away, but I fear to even more

I'm waiting for another day
The last one was so desperately disappointing
I can't seem to focus on what I've done, where I've been
I can't see nobody here

And all I seem to hear is stop, stop
I'm catching up on you
Don't leave me here behind
I can't see a soul out here, it's dark, dark
I'm catching up on you

And all I wonder is why
(Why do I try to start running)
Why?
(What am I running for?)

D'you remember why we started running?
D'you remember why we're running at all?
If I dared I'd choose to swim but it's safer on the shore
D'you remember why we started running?
D'you remember why we're running at all?
I would die to get away, but I fear to even more

I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Yes I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Than close my eyes

I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Than close my eyes and start swimming
Close my eyes and start swimming
Close my eyes and start swimming

Enjoy!^^
