Isn't it beautiful?
Anywho, I vectored it and decided to keep it simple. I'm sure someone else would have thought of something much better than this OX
Hmm... maybe the title should have been like, "Draw my life" since she's holding a pen, not a brush :\ Or maybe "Scribble my Life"?

Time: altogether... maybe 4 hours. 2 of those were spent staring at the screen, trying to decide what to do with it.
Layers: Like, 4 for the background, 7 for the vector
Thanks to Ish for all the help, 'cause I'm an indecisive whore D:<

    Nice makeup <33
    I love the clean vector and
    simple black bg, gives it a
    secret look.
    Great job :3

    ooh nice vector! I like how you've used limited colours, and how she looks like she's fading into the background :0

  5. ShiXon Oct 25, 2006

    Wondeful job! I love the dark, rich colors. The scan is also an excellent choice, and you've done a impeccable job with it! Thank you for sharing this, much appreciated.

    nice wallpaper, the vectoring is well done and i like the way you coloured the chara around the eyes.

  9. Alfonse Oct 25, 2006

    I dunno why, but at a glance, this girl looked like Fay(sp?) from Cowboy Bebop. <_<
    And I think the scan looks lovely. xD
    But there's only one problem for me, and that's the font. It's nice but kinda dark for the dark bg, know what I mean? So it's hard to notice, then again, I have horrible eye sight. x_x
    Anyway, I like this one alot, so it's goin to meh favs. n_n

    Isn't it beautiful?! it's a freaking horror show! I thought you were joining the halloween contest at first :3
    I love the eyes and free flowing hair!
    why not "kill my life with a pen"? :P

  11. Morphee Oct 25, 2006

    lovely as always ;) the vector is smooth and very well done :)
    though maybe the little white swirl/smoke element could have been continued and not seem cut.

    still i love this wallpaper XD

  12. KevLar Oct 26, 2006

    It appears you forgot to put black between 2 fingers on that visible hand.
    Overall pretty good but a little too grainy for my tastes.

  13. jasaiyajin Mute Member Oct 26, 2006

    very artistic... nyah..... ^______^

  14. Ephemeral-Garden Oct 26, 2006

    Is this Gothic? It's really cool. How about "Rewrite my Life" ? >.< Anyways, it's just a suggestion. ^^

    I love the atmosphere in this, pretty dark and yea... quite hard to explain. It's nice to see if the smoke could be extended though. It'll look like Yuuko from xxxHolic. >.<

    Beautiful image, beautiful vector. Love the cool/goth style; it's a nice mood piece. The red outlines are a nice touch, and the shading of her face is...luscious is the only word I can think of.

  16. fawna-chan Oct 28, 2006

    Oh...awesome, awesome. :D
    The gothic style of the scan is so stylish and the black is so so cool with the wallie. It's simply gorgeous. >.<

  17. HaWaIIofHoaI Oct 28, 2006

  18. pegassuss Oct 29, 2006

    Brilliantly wicked! Or wickedly brilliant! XD Either way, its awesome ^^ Nice vectoring again and it goes well with simplicity of the wall ;) great job!

  23. anji Nov 16, 2006

    I just like the atmosphere of this one ^__^
    Minimalist is great sometimes. Love the mix of red and black.

  24. paintmearainbow Nov 19, 2006

    I like the title and I don't know why XD For a second, I thought she was Nana from Nana >.<
    Anyway, i like the dark atmosphere of this wallie, elegant yet original^^
