Please full view if you want to comment, thumbnail is a big crap >.<

=-.story.-=
To be honest, this is another wall made from pic which I found when browsing different galleries, this time it was Aethereality <pic HERE>
I'm now in vectoring and picture looked very nice to vector, so saved it on disc and started to work. It took me almost week to finish this, due to many different circumstances <like arrival of my two crazy aunties, one family dinner, second... and, man! who gives you homework for summer?! my beloved math teacher, that's who... 80 different problems to solve, geezz... so angry>
For the title... again, it's my lack of skill in naming things.
That's all here.

=-.some technical blabbering.-=
Lalala~ easiest vector ever! Guess hardest part was tracing smoke in way it would look natural. I've extracted from scan girl and smoke, which gave me concept for the bg: it was on scan, fit well... and since on pic were some leaves why don't use texture with them?
So we came to another part: textures. It's my first time using them XD Hope my choice was good... Noticed that I'm hardly using brushes and that kind of things...
One thing that isn't textured is her skin. It would be too much, I think.

=-.stats.-=
>time: a week <2 days of working>
>layers: >60
>.psd: 111mb <a new record!>
>.jpg: almost 600kb <life record, that's why I'm writing it>

=-.some general blabering.-=
I'm satisfied with result, that's rare.
Also want to make myself MT browsing skin with this one.
Also it is longest description I ever wrote...
And there must be a lot of grammar mistakes XD

EDIT
Since some mistakes have been pointed out I checked them and tried to remove. Hope it looks better now. I must stop finishing wallies at 3am >.<

    i cant believe this wallpaper has been in MT for 10 hours and there are only 3 comments! The vectoring is really good, and the design on her kimono is so pretty. the smoke effect is just awesome. I love how the character is holding up the devil mask infront of her face so you can only see one eye. The vector on her eyelashes seem to be a little...shaky looking, and her finger edges seem to be a little too pointy, but overall this is a good wall! Its so mysterious looking. the textures you used also give it a sort of...japanese feeling.

    What a beautiful wallie featuring traditional Japanese painting! I love it~~~
    Great vector and great texture! :D (The original picture's quality is so poor and crappy compared to your finished wallie~) Great job! :)
    About the name~~~ True, she does look a bit like mononoke in human form, but I don't think she's a devil~ It's just that the devil mask she's holding makes her a bit scary... I'm never good at naming things, so I can't think of a better name for this wallie~
    Great wallie! Thanks for sharing! :)

    This is wonderful! It's too bad the thumbnail sucks, this isn't getting the attention it deserves!

    Gorgeous. The vector is very smooth, especially the shading work. The texture of her kimono is a bit too real compared to the rest of the piece...but that's probably just me. ^_^'

    Wow, this wall is so gorgeous! I can't believe it's not in the elite gallery :( I especially love the kimono pattern you picked for her. You did a great jpb on the vector! ^_^

    I like her expression and the details of her kimono. It's inspiring. I also like it because I love red.
    It's both mysterious and appealing.
    Congratulations! ^-^
