realy nice wallpaper. the girl looks so sweet. keep up the great work!
Ahhhh exams finished recently and I was finally able to finish off this piece of work. :)
Been working on this since I uploaded my last vector what...3 weeks and 4 days ago? :P
What to say?
This is my second vector thus far and was completely made using photoshop CS.
You may notice that I'm a big fan of Ah My Goddess ;)
This scan, Belldan(d)y, uploaded by Yusoi (thanks very much for sharing :) ), was originally large
but of low quality.
I really loved the scan along with the background and I wanted to make it into a wallpaper (which I will some day).
So first I had to vector Belldandy and replace all the bits cut off.
As you can imagine, this was very, very, very hard. Well...for me it was anyway.
The wings weren't so bad but the hair took ages to plan and were attempted many, many, many times ^_^'
Can you spot where the cut off is without looking at the original scan? Prizes for first person to pin point it! XP jk jk
Anyways, as per usual, any comments, criticisms and favs are very welcome. Point something out and if I have time, I'll try to correct it.

Woah! You even reconstructed her hair! I've seen other folks redo her wings, but never her hair, and in such detail!
I am truly impressed. I gotta learn how to do vector art right...

it was about time you submitted it... XP loll, well, it was worth the wait, this vector looks really awesome... i guessed for the tip of the hair, coz' they seem too regular maybe... though i understand why you'd have such a hard time with it >.< but you did great on the tip of the wings, they look quite realistic, great job!! can't wait to see the wall now ^^

I like this scan as well. ^_^ You did a great job on vectoring it and belldandy's pose and the colors are so nice and strong. It's awesome that you added on to her wings and hair. It looks so natural. Really beautiful work~

Tatsuya Jul 01, 2005
it's look really good than your first one, indeed! good job and thank for sharing
Iyasis Jul 02, 2005
Oh wow Holt, this is truly impressive. I haven't seem many vectors, but this definitely sets a high standard for further vectors I see ^^
It's neat that you've added/finished off the missing portions of the scan, and evidently from the original scan, that was a lot of work! You've done a wonderful job that I initally thought the full wings and hair were part of the scan. The vector is extremely clean and the colours are so sharp and vibrant. I bet all that shading and detailing was a challenge to vector, but it came out very nicely. On the thumbnail, her end hair curls seem a little flat and skewed, but it's not that evident on the full version so I'm assuming it's just a resizing flaw. Anyway, an awesome vector Holt, I look forward to your upcoming wall of this and of course more vectors! ^^

not bad Pdidi not bad at all. I didn't realise you had finished the vector since u've been mostly playing Knights of the Old Republic and Battlefield 2.
btw thanks for fixing my internet. let's see how long it lasts for this time.
Kiako Jul 03, 2005
the vector looks pretty good, i like the girls position and her wings.
PokoPi Jul 03, 2005

I looked at it literally hours after you posted it but that damn SQL error killed my post. So heres the post I tried to make...
Simply awesome. Now I know why I look to you for advice on doing walls :-) I really hope this becomes a suitable awe inspiring background because as doujinshi it's breathtaking.
And sorry the favs late. I only just got this item to load after 2 days of trying... :-)
P.s. Do you mind if I use her to make a wall? When I looked for clouds for my Fun in the Sun wall I found some really nice pictures. I'll even let you name it... what do ya say :-)
