grand jete
a grand jete is a long horizontal jump, starting from one leg and landing on the other. it is most often done forward and usually involves a split in mid-air (also called grand ecart en l'air).
( source from wikipedia )


yeah it's finished! i just love the ballet <33 and when i saw a ballet-related range murata scan i really had to wall it in anyway possible! >D
vectoring with outlines are harder than without outlines and they look neat-er without outlines ;pp

PLEASE, ignore the fact that some of the part are identically the same which is unnatural xD;; *sweatdrops*
it was really fun varying the outfits ( very little difference though ) on the ballerina and creating different hair styles, it's almost like playing dress up o.o ( wtf? )

on the 3rd i changed the legs position just to make it a little more interesting as in not boring =P
added a simple bg and it is done! >D and i changed the color of the outfits because i thought white would blend too well with the background and black is more stylish xDD comments appreciated ~~

p.s. : i named it grand jete even though the ballerina isn't doing the grand jete >__>;;

    I'm stealing the honors for first post . YES .

    quite interesting wall shi-chan ~ its rare to see a ballerina range wall . *lol*
    the vector is nice as usual ~ but maybe needs a different colour for the bg . the skin kinda almost blend with the bg (because there're no outlines)

    but yeah , not bad overall na ~ ;D <33

    ps : why does the right ballerina is having an emo face? D:

    I'm not a ballet fan, but interesting wallpaper you have there!
    It's quite nice, and unique (as I always say). Nice vector work. I think the bg goes quite well with the vector, but maybe the colour is slightly too similar to the ballerianas'. Oh, looks like rythem said that as well. ^^"
    Anyway, nice wp.

    you always have the coolest concepts for your vector walls :P it's a bit too simple for me to use as a wall, but i like it as a piece of art. :D

    Nice vector work, clean and simple. I also don't really like the bg color b/c it kinda makes the wall look bland.
    Still great work anyway! :) +fav

    omg I love ballet, and this is like a goth version (which looks so cool) but its still so adorable, great concept

    It really looks rather nice...although I still think that the ballerina on the right looks a bit weird with her other classmates doing the 3rd position! I love ballet and it's really really challenging, since a lot of the teachers are so tough on you. >.< But really simplistic and vectory wallpaper you have here! :D

  8. CosmoStar Jun 25, 2006

    So interesting! I love ballet too! You did a great job vectoring! This look so neat... and interesting.
    I think the bg is a little empty though... maybe if you added a bar it would like a ballet class room, because it think that they are on class, practing (anyway, this is only an opinion and suggestion ok? ;) ).
    Congratulations! You did a great job! Keep up, I love your walls!

    Ahaha, another creative concept! I love ballad, its a very graceful and elegant dance, and this wall has the qualities too! Keep it up!

    Nice job! ^-^ It's really nice, I love the expresion of the girls, and their pose. The colors are nice too. Good work with the vector ;) Keep it up! ^^

    *steal shi's skill*

    Very nice. You've varied the ballerinas enough so that the similarity is just what 3 ballerinas practicing the same pose should look like. The "echoing" image is an effective compositional technique. However, it is a bit strange that there are lines inside but none outside.
