Artist Comment

to be frank, this project didn't turn out anything like how I pictured it last night. Then again none of my projects ever do. I finished my finals and school today, needless to say my job and misc. summer activities will probably keep my even busier than I was during school, so other than my battleground enteries you most likely won't see much from me from now on. On to the piece;
I saw this scan, and I knew I was going to end up vectoring it, not only because it was broken and I wasn't in the mood for reCGing but..because it gave me the "vector vibe". I was aiming for one of those simple vectors that show a complicated array of colors and patterns on the character but have a white background...seeing as most people seem to like that simple stuff, yet..it didn't go that way. When the character was finished I began to add patterns from tama's, and before I knew it..the design was far to complex to leave it as a simple vector. I remembered that I had seen about two walls that had courtians in them...and I had thought of trying it myself, but hadn't. Hence I tried out the whole curtian deal. At first, one of the courtains was covering the eyes of Enma, and because Jigoku Shoujo is a series which seems to put much emphasis artistically on eyes (especially hers), I decided to cut it off a bit. All that was left now..was a background.
As a background, I tried out a few patterns from the squid at first..but none were satisfactory so I went back to tama's site, and tried out a few things. It felt kind of cheap just leaving a pattern as a background so I added a sort of japanese door style to it. Needless to say..it looked very...MT-ish n00b like effect, so I covered it up with a texture from tehspook :3.

other texture used came from DA!

oh..and its widescreen..cuz I can. :)

    Covering Enma with patterns was a good idea and especially the marble-like hair looks cool. The background is quite solid, too. The curtains could have been a bit more detailed though. I mean you made this "overlapping" effect by putting them in different layers but somehow a bit more shading would've been nice.

    ... preeeeeety :D though i'm not sure of the white over it; it's a bit like they're curtains but not quite.

    exquisite use of patterns and a well done vector. i especially like her eyes.

    oh my godds! That is a most creppy eye-looks I ever seen... Emma can make my skin and hair stand up... but.. this one.. is sure one of hardest looks ^-^ I love it! I think this vector is magnifficant, those patterns are nice and they fit good to the chara and bg, Wonderfull work, really! I like it because it makes so fantastic effect on my skin ;-)

    awesome how the texture overlays the outlining. possibly the pattern on the kimono is a bit too red. like maybe find a texture with the base color of red but with other accent colours too.

    +fav....cuz i can XD

  14. ayaki Jun 17, 2006

    MT-ish n00b like effect ... ?! >___< hehehehe
    a definite Jigoku Shoujo wall. I love the texture+pattern.
    unlike kai, i kinda like the bright red in her kimono. It kinda makes her glow. *_*
    just that the text stands a bit too much.
    great job~

    Nicely done on the vector, could have made the door something else rather than dark red but overall the vector is superb nonetheless. Nice vibe im getting from this wall which creeps me out! XD Great job on the wall noentheless! :P

    I like the colors. It has a dark look without having to use really dark colors. Her position in the wallie and the curtains, slightly hiding her figure, is superb giving her a sense of mystery and allurement. The design in the outlines are an amazing idea which continues to the bg. Really awesome work. ^_^

    the curtain is such a good idea.
