Original Name Before Completion: Sakura in Wonderland: High Hopes Meet Low Places

Project Duration: 1/24-1/31

Do you believe this vector took me a whole week to complete? Well, there's a story behind this: I was vectoring another vector and I was focusing more on the Vectory contest submission more than this scan. Not only that, I realized that the mushroom, the golden sign, and the whole complexity of the scan would take me a while to vector to get as close as the original as possible. And speaking of scans, it was weird that no one tried to vector the scan Sakura In Wonderland, originally submitted by saikusa. I had to search for it in the gallery, page 10 I believe, which a ton of scans were good for vectoring. But I chose this scan because it's cute and challenging both at the same time.

I've made a new record! This is the only vector which received the rightful organization of creating 200+ layers, mostly being groups and sub-groups, but without even counting I guess I approximately used that much.

I tried to do the sign letters in Illustrator but I realized that all my groups flattened upon import, so I couldn't do that. I guess I'm too experienced in Photoshop to switch to a new program (but just in case I'm keeping Illustrator anyways =3)

The hardest part of this vector were the mushrooms. As stated above I wanted to perfectly resemble the scan, so vectoring the mushrooms and the blending and the blurring....Oi... It's as close as I wanted it.

That seems to be all, I think. My brain doesn't work well in the mornings.

    Bloody hell! :D

    You're a vectoring DEMON!

    I'm stunned at the level of detail and complexity that's gone into this! It... leaves me speechless!

    Clean and cute! I don't see jaggy lines, except on some parts. The use of gradients (or brush) really work! And having the patience to filling the outlines, this is indeed a great vector. One thing I dislike, her lipstick. I don't know if it's originally in the scan, but it looks weird to me. Oh, and look at Kero-chan, cute! XD Anyway, good job! :)

  8. Devilet Feb 02, 2007

    Ohuhuhuho.

    What we got here? Some amazing vector xD
    I can't imagine how you can do these things so well, I'm still working on mine ...
    I got no patience I suppose, or much vectoring skills.

    Nice work on details!

    Sugoi ne,entity-san!
    Keep up the great work XD +fav

    HEH. You didn't do this! You just copied someones scan and took credit for it. I mean look at it. The lines are too perfect. The coloring is done with precision. There's just no flaw you can see unless you concider the fact that you didn't do this! HEH. You know what I mean. If not, I'm just pushing your buttons. You did a great job with this vector. I was happy to view it.

  11. waterprincess2401 Feb 02, 2007

    this is fantastic. seriously. i can't believe the quality of the work shown. bloody well done +fav

  12. FlowerDog Feb 02, 2007

    I think I went crazy when I click on it for full-view. XD That does look wonderful. T_T I could believe that you took a week because it would take me a year to create a vector like this. Vectoring four characters with such details must be a challenge. :) The mushrooms look perfect like the rest of the vector, though, (please don't mind me) the left bottom side of the golden sign has a very small brush residue, but that's not a big deal. Overall, this is excellent work. ;)

  13. EldaLacus92 Feb 02, 2007

    Kyaah, that's totallylovely <3. Sakura looks soabsolutelycute and the details you've been giving attention is so remarkable. You definitely deserve the Elite :) It's so cute :3

  16. moonescape Feb 04, 2007

    very lovely! I just adore this a lot. I mean I can't believe you did that all in 7 days and there's a lot of details you covered in here. Definiately deserves to be in the elite. :) I'm not sure how you do these so quickly and smooth, but it's wonderful and I'm not sure how long did you spend on your vectors, but it always turn out wonderful. It would take me 2 weeks if I tried to vector the scan. >_< Definately adding as favs! ;)

  17. thingperson Feb 04, 2007

    What a beautiful vector ! :O I see you realized some shadows with blur and if I don't mistaken you never didn't that in your others vectors O.o This can be possible? I'm not sure. However, it's a really beautyful vector and I love it ^^
