Mmm, how I love this novel. If you have yet to read it, shame on you.

I knew from the moment I saw the poster for the upcoming movie, I wanted to vector it. And considering it's my first attempt at vectoring a real person and not an anime scan, I'm not exactly satisfied with it.

One a side note, I feel like I'm supporting the movie, which I'm rather reluctant to do as after I saw the trailer I had the feeling the film is going to stray from the book. (Damn you Hollywoooooood) Moving along, after vectoring, I picked out some patterns from Tama-Neko's pattern site and blended them into the mush you see now just as a filler. I also chose a memorable line from the novel itself to add some detail. Blue was the color I chose for the primary colors, because of the focus on Sayuri's "water personality" in the book.

More resolutions soon at Antique Fairy Tales.

    looks nice.
    about that vector, it does look clean but I would have added a painting layer to soften the sharp-ness of the lines. Like the mouth and eyebrows are definitely too clean and sharp to look good.
    Allthough ÀI like the pattern work you did n_n

    aH, I can safely expect beauty and originality from all your works. :) This one is certainly no exception. Good work.

    i've read this book when i was in gr 12 >_< and yes it was a really good book!~ i finished it in a few days....which was pretty amazing cuz i seldom read...LoL =_=a

    I really like the effect u've added to her hair, really interesting, it would be kinda plain if u left it all black...so this is a nice touch!~
    the vector looks a bit too sharp....which kinda makes the hair losing its flowiness.

    but still....impressive work u hv here @_@ great job ne!~

    rockiee I think I liked it better when it was all black T__T I like the lines of text though, especially the last line of the book <33 Really great job with the photo vector of Zhang Zi Yi. I think you made her look a lot prettier and more "acceptable"... *cough cough* Not going to start ranting again. I just love the starkness of this vector XD really nice job rockiee! <333

  13. OracleAngel Retired Moderator Oct 16, 2005
