After a couple painting walls, I wanted to dive back into vectoring...so I decided to finally do a Totoro wall (never enough Ghibli cuteness around in my opinion :) )

I happened to see the new AP Vectorness walling challenge of "rain" and knew that it would work perfectly with what I had in mind

So here you have it...three adorable Totoros in the rain :D
Big totoro vector traced from this scan
Medium totoro from this mt scan
Small totoro from this ap scan

For the background, I started with just the idea of the rain...then came the puddles, the ground and sky, the acorns, and finally the bushes...I ended up trying to create as much detail as possible
I played around with different ways of vectoring the rain but liked this version best

(Final note: "shito-shito" is the Japanese sound word for a rain shower)

Now everyone...a giant awwwwwwwww of cuteness ;)

Technical details:
Approx 18 hours over a week
30 layers after multiple merges
100% Illustrator vector

My Neighbor Totoro is amazingly cute, especially when we see wallpapers such as this one by cyd84. I love the colors and mood it is giving off. Yesterday, I actually watched this movie on television, so all the more reason to fall in love with this wonderful piece.

Great work!!

    Congrats on the highlight, m'dear XD No nit-picks from me... this is just way too cute. Very stylish vector work (I like how the lines came out :D), the puddles + reflections look great... and I love how the background looks, and I love the colors... This is your best wall yet, and I love how I'm saying this with every wall you make <3

    *awwww* XD

    Mmm, must go nominate in Simple-ism if noone else has yet :D

    Great job on the rain splases. [Can't spell today...] The color blends well too. Nothing too bold or too sutle. The detail as you go back into the background is a nice touch too.
    Only thing I might nit-pick on is on the lines of Mid-Totoro. Just a personal preference. Heck, I might come to like it too.
    Congrats on the highlight. ^^

    Wow, an almost near-instant highlight, and a well-earned one too. Everything is so cute ^_^ All the details are great, and I love the concept ^_^ I think it's a little empty in the background, but the fading colours are nice. Thanks for sharing ^_^

    I love clean and simple wall like this.
    The color theme and the subtle texture in the background is just enough to find it beautiful.
    But I also like the stylish way of vectoring the totoros.
    Thanks for sharing!

    it's so lovely totoro wallie ^_^ agree with you that there isn't enough of works made of ghibli's characters. vectors of different totoros are nicely done, lines are clear and colouring in them is very clean. it's so cute and funny when the smallest totoro has the biggest leaf as his rain cover when the biggest totoro have the smallest leaf XD colouring of the background really gives feeling of raining and puddle under the characters too. like the way how brownish colouring of the ground changes to the different blues tones of the raining sky. raining effect is also well done and it's nice detail that they are brighter than other blue colours on bg so you can see them but they aren't too striking :) overall very cute totoro wallie and great work ! thank you fo sharing !

    Heh heh... I like the way the larger Totoro are looking at the little one ^_^'

    Really impressive work, and the water effects must have been a nightmare to make them look natural :) And of course, it's Totoro, so I'm just guaranteed to love it :D
