I always loved the original image of Sano that I used for this wallpaper. I love his pose, the look on his face, and how everything is monochrome and flows together...So I vectored him and decided to keep him in black and white because I don't see how this image could have worked in color.
For the background, I used a variety of cloud brushes and an actual picture of Japan (Shinjuku to be more precise...yes I know the story takes place in Tokyo...at least I think so...anyway...), and used a tutorial to render it like a "manga background". I really like the end result... I think it's one of my best wallpapers yet.
In case you're wondering where the title for this wallpaper came from, it happens to be lyrics from the Depeche Mode song, "Something to Do". Yes, I'm a DM fan and it's not the first time I incorporated their lyrics in my wallpapers.
Thanks for looking :D
