...of smokes and waves, fishes and crane :)

Anyways I was saving this upload for you-know-who, but I got rejected from another job today and felt depressed, and apparently when I feel depressed I upload walls. They were nice enough to offer me a (part-time) web position at the office though, so I'll probably pick that up while I start again from from square one looking for a full-time job.

Not much to say about this wall except I wanted Yuuko to look like she was partially submerged/emerging. I fell in love with the scan at first sight... the ruffles on her dress killed me though, I thought it looked like a hideous maid outfit. So I killed most of them when I vectored the outlines. Joys of selective vectoring :) Post-Illustrator work in PS with polygonal lasso, gradient tool and soft brush for the soft shading.

Yuuko and fish-circles vectored from this scan; the circle with the crane from this manga page; light bg texture from mayang. Thanks to gid, crap, and nageni-kun for checks and suggests, and to the two boys again for final checks.

Enjoy :) As always, additional res @ pixel ellipsis!

    lol, I saw your post at junkii, I just got back on from watching some premieres on TV. xP
    xxxHolic huh? I simply love this series!
    I think the lines are a bit too thick on some parts, it looks a bit too standing out, making me look more at the lines than the beautiful patterns.
    Neat water effect, and this should be in the elite gallery.
    Thank you for sharing, another xxxholic wall never hurts!

    the vector overall is very nice , but I suggest using thinner lines for the facial details , it spoils her expression a bit.
    but yes , good job ~ =D <3

    The wallpaper is really good. I like the colors and everything. The only complaint I have is about Yuuko's face. Something about it seems off. It's probably just me, though...

  13. ForSakenAngelsAbandonMe Dec 20, 2006

    I'm sorry that you didn't get that job but that's their lost. Feel Better!
    Thanks for the upload its so cool

  14. Irmes Dec 23, 2006

    Wonderful composition~ The only thing which seems a bit would be the fish-circles, but the rest looks great. Very stylish, I'd say. =3

    yuuko always manages to look great in every picture. i really like this image of the colours and the texture

  16. nottheaverageidiot May 19, 2007

    The thing that first hit me when I saw this wallie was the composition. The innate harmony makes it very easy on the eyes. Of course, Yuuko herself also manages to be very easy on the eyes :)
    Thanks for sharing!
