Artist Comment

Between the liquor, the bed and the noise in my head
Between your mind and my crime
And me in the grime
Between the gun, the lead and the lies that I said
Through your sweet breath
Comes the dawn of my death

Touch me - Hate me
Give yourself to me and break me
Cut these eyes and I will see
Kiss these lying lips for me
Stroke this skin and I will kneel
Brutalize me I will heal

Between the bullet and my lip
And the lies you let slip
Between the dirt of this soul
And your heart that's a hole
Between the place where you hit
And this face where you spit
Through your sweet breath
Comes the dawn of my death
K.M.F.D.M. "Brute"

Interesting choice to leave hair as blocks instead of gradient, I like the style. Highlighted for its similarity to the original image.

    T_T I was typing up my comment and it wouldn't post... no wonder (._.) *lost her comment*

    Oh well here it is again from memory~

    The rough lines are good because that's what vectors need... some sort of bump! Too often the smooth lines are boring and the word "perfection" comes to mind. Bumps are good for texture and to entertain the eye :D

    And this is a awonderful vector... it's great :nya: I would *never* be able to vector anything as good as this, so kudos kudos kudos! You deserve a biiiiiiiiiigggggg pattie on the backie :D

    *throws magical dust*

    A classic aggressive image of BeBop's most elusive and feared character, Vicious. I'm particularly fond of the minor elaborations of this illustration and their vast impacts on the viewing audience. The black stork (of which I'm certain has a proper scientific name) with his (assuming the bird be male) large black wings that seem neither on the verge of settling at the man's shoulder nor taking off in flight. And that majestic neck and head with cresting feathers and long hooking beak. And then of course, the sheen and reflection of light in Vicious' hair and the handle of the katana resting at his shoulder. A very elegant illustration and a classic vector. Thank you very much for sharing Dream. You do us proud, as always. :)

  17. Dragula Sep 30, 2005

    I like that character, has a lot of style and personality.
    Grand travail, gardent le bon travail.

  18. anji Sep 30, 2005

    You chose a really cool caracter to vectorize. :)
    i like his hair so much there's a lot of colour in it and the color theme is very nice with this light brown. I don't know if it was all like this on the original scan (the link doesn't seem to work anymore)
    The grungy part on is coat, give a cool texture, I like it.
    The thing I less like is the head of the bird, his eyes seem to appear from no where, I just have the impression it lacks a bit of feathers.
    But I still really love the vector... awesome :)
    Are you speaking french?
    Dis moi pas que j'ai ecris tout ca en anglais pour rien XD

  19. tevi Sep 30, 2005

    Teehee, everyone lubs this as much as I do <3

    [I'm not sure what else to say, since I kind of already said everything I wanted to say in my first comment... ^^;]

    *goes off to re-fav*

    ... Aw man, this is going to end up as my shortest comment ever... *pats her now tarnished record* =p

    - lub, Tevi

  20. Midori-chan Oct 01, 2005

    wow!!! XD XD
    any guys with a katana is always my favorite!!!
    i've never watched cowboy bebop before, but now it seems that i'm already interested in this anime!! XD
    the vector is great!! the shadings and colors are well blended^^
    hope to see a wallie you made out of him^^

  21. miyano Oct 01, 2005

    hmm..cool :)
    it looks simple \but it's not really when we see the full version of your vector.
    anyway,nicely done..great job :)
    btw,haven't really talked to u for a long long time...how're you? hope that you're doing fine..wonder if u actually remember me anyway x_______X.

  22. studio Oct 01, 2005

    Great choice for a vector <33 it. Highlights are pretty gorgeously done, and the face looks fab. @__@ Like how you managed the detail even with the small differences between the colour tones in the image.

    Balanced and lovely. Luff X3

  23. omni Oct 02, 2005

    Overall, pretty nice.... but I'm wondering, what program did you use? There appears to be... nah. But still.

    My chief complaint would have to be the crane/bird/thing. It's not quite the same quality as the rest of it is.

    Love to stay and comment more, but I've got lunch.

  24. pegassuss Oct 05, 2005

    Great work! ^^ well, I don't know much about vectors, so I cannot say much about this work, but I think this looks great! ^^ I think you did a great job! Keep it up!
