For the Inspiration Project at Simple-ism.

My inspiration:
A Simple Black Vector Wall by crapmonster
Jigoku Shoujo: Red on Black by zephiris26

Layers: about 15

I originally wanted to find a scan where there's a lot of hair in the bangs, so I can just define the inside of the hair and fade it out to black, then shade with black (probably half of the face).

Then I came across this scan in the WHR gallery, so I played around with the darkness/contrast a bit, and this kinda came out of it. Since she doesn't have enough strands on her face, I decided to define the base colour of the hair.

I originally wanted to use a few solid colours, but tried using textures instead because I've never vectored with textures like this before. Textures came from http://hybrid-genesis.net/ and http://www.aethereality.net/ A lot of experiementation with blend modes and stuff to make her hair kinda firey. I debated forever on whether or not I wanted to colour her eyes and shading on her face. But I ended up leaving them black because it's more stark.

Alternate version (solid colours):

which version is better?

Edit: I don't know why the edges or the hair looks slightly jagged =_=... it looked fine before I turned it into JPG...

    I have to say, I think the first one's much better (the one with black eyes). It's a nice mesh of light and dark, and thanks for sharing!

    It looks nice... definitely get a strong sense of emergence ^^ The font doesn't quite fit though; maybe try some of the more standard fonts but mess with the font settings? I can see this working either with lots of fontage or with none at all, and when in doubt I tend to find that less/none is better than more :3

    P.S. I like textured version better... the colors are richer than the non-textured one.
