Artist Comment

So here's the story:

I found this BEAUTIFUL scan of xxxHolic, but it was kinda 800x600 and blurred. I automatically thought I'll vector this. But when I changed the size, to my astonishment the work looked like a manga blob rather than a CLAMP masterpiece. So I started looking for something a bit bigger or less blurred. Well I found it, but it appeared to be cut (from half of Yuuko's skirt, and just above her head, and some sofa on both sides) AND it had horrible colours (orange a yellow only). So I merged the two, and tried to do my best recreating the bits missing in the better scan (after all CLAMP is mostly about the lineart...) :)
After that came the coloring. Now, it's finished, hope you like it.
PS.I didn't find this scan on MT... ^_^' maybe I wasn't looking for it well...

Oh the different colours of the smoke made me think of Mr Tulip from 'The Truth' by Terry Pratchett (confession: am a big Pratchett fan). It look so chemical, it made me think of mothballs(don't worry if you don't understand... it's just my feeling towards the work)

    What the heck? Why isn't this Elite status yet, it's so freaking cool! Awesome job with the detail, you are braver then me since I only do vectors if the image quality is pretty good. XD

  21. merelie Feb 08, 2007

    wow, that is such wonderful work
    it is absolutely lovely and kudos to you for having the patience to merge separate images so beautifully
    you'd never know they were separate to look at the end product
    thank you so much for sharing! :D

  22. gilesaquil Mar 02, 2007

    Great vector work! I understand wanting this image to be high quality - it's kickass! ^^
    Very nice job here. ^^ Yea, lines are CLAMP style all right. I guess it adds a lot of appeal to their art.

  23. emma-0 Mar 11, 2007

    Thanks for a great picture! You're right - the smoke looks like something right out of Discworld - I can just see Mr. Tulip with his mothballs in the background! ;-)

  24. Sherrie Mar 14, 2007

    This is really beautiful! I have always, always admired Yuuko's clothes. They are always so beautiful and elegant. I love her outfit here too. You did a wonderful job in recreating it! I feel that it's so nice that it deserves to be highlighted or in the elite gallery. Anyway keep it up! Thanks so much for sharing! ^^ *adds to favs*
