This is for Paint-o-rama's "Let There Be Light!" contest.

Scan: Jigoku Shoujo 2 by bikixnn
Tutorial for contest: Re-painting a scan. (@Candy-chan: If this kind of tut isn't allowed for this contest, just say so~)

Anyway, the scan is completely re-painted with shadows and light added. I just find it scary. Like, imagine you're walking in a park and you suddenly see some random red-eyed kimono-wearing girl! It's crazy!

Time: 6 hours
Layers: 38

Comments welcome!

    Wow! Can't believe you did all that haha
    It's really good except when you look at the girl standing in front of the tree and the tree behind her, the colours are too different styles
    The kimono needs different colours of black since the tree and three is filled with a million different shades of brown
    but anyway, nice stuff

    Wow, very good painting. I'm impressed with the detail and care on the flowery things on the tree. Fave from me :D.

    wohoooo! Second entry! You'll hear more when it's time to judge oh ho ho ho
    btw the tut is fine like so dear.

    ooh shiny and bright! :) and yay entry!

    question: did you vector her completely, or just the black parts of her kimono? Also, did you smudge the petals at all?

    I like the trunk, and I commend your patience in painting all those individual petals :D

    but I do kinda agree with acid-awakening, that the style of her kimono doesn't quite fit with the background and her face. I think it's because there probably should be some dappled shading/lighting on her clothes as well, so maybe make parts of her kimono less black and the shadows more defined? Also, the blue part on her kimono is cell-shaded, so it doesn't quite fit with the painty style either. Some smudging would help.

    Oh yeah, also I think it'll look better without that piece of tree trunk in the upper left corner. It's too dark and disembodied (:D) to tell what it is imo (it could look like a corner of a door-type-thingy)...

    good luck on the contest! ;)

  14. starrliteangel Jan 31, 2007

  15. getten Feb 01, 2007

    she actually has two kimono that showed in tv series........
    this one i believe appeared in the first (segment?).....dont know the correct words.......

    Terrific job on the repainting... I can only imagine how draing a task this might have been.

    The result is outstanding!

  21. FallenAngelZoicyte Feb 02, 2007

    this is great. love the re-painting and the bg. its all perfect.

  22. Hanazaki Feb 02, 2007

    You know what. Enma looks so scary here. It reminds me of a local legend here in my country. They said when you walk by past a large tree with all sort of hanging leaves of flowers (just like this one), you will eventually met with a child. This child will tell you she has lost her toys and want your help. As you 'search', you end up finding a tombstone and heard a shrieking scream and laughter. (shiver....)

    No offense. I do like this wallie. + fav.

  23. Firemace Feb 02, 2007

    Finally !~ A re-paint of the Scan ~! This is an Eye opener for me since The Scan itself is so promising yet it was in need of retouching !

    Great Work ! *Salutes* :P
