This is my first ever vector.

That said, I worked my ever-lovin' ASS off on it. This is from a black and white image in volume one of the manga. I vectored the entire thing, used a pattern from scanned origami paper for her outfit, and then sat and stared because I didn't have a CLUE what to do next. I wanted to have a dark sky with stars. That, by itself, was super lame. Like, really lame. Like, deleted from the gallery lame. Then I hit upon the idea of having Sakura wrapped in night as her wings, mysterious and powerful unfurled, blotting out the sun-filled sky of the real world. I actually had to use a photo of clouds because I tried and tried but they still looked like white blobs on a blue gradient. OX It was a real challange to blend the two skies together an still maintain the edge. I wanted you to see that the wings - the tsubasa- occupy a different dimension than the rest of reality.

What do you think?

time: 12 hours over the course of 2 weeks
layers: hundreds. I'm new to this.

    OMG this is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I really hope it gets highlighted~ The vector itself is a little odd in some places, but the clouds....ohhhh...those clouds are so pretty *sparkly eyes* I cant believe only 27 people have downloaded this ! those wings are really something. So pretty.....and the sparkles that outline it are awesome. Very very very nice! definitely fav!

    Ah, yes this is very gorgous! The clouds and sky are beautiful, and the patterns and colours give a very elegant feel to everything. The only thing that seems weird are the characters eyes.. they're just a little creepy.. lol
    Excellent Job!
