Artist Comment

Okay, I'm supposed to be studying for midterms and preparing for interviews right now... but started vectoring and can't stop >.<

Anyway, this vector was done for the contest at Anime Vector Artist's Club on deviantART. The challenge was to vector any anime character using black, white, and one other colour. I love using limited palettes, so searched around and decided to use this scan of Mireille Bouquet. Before you ask, yes I know Mireille has blue-green eyes, but I'm only allowed to use one colour. Besides, I think it looks cool like this :)

So yeah, decided to go ahead and wall it. I kinda wanted to have a bullet flying out or something, but couldn't find a good stock to vector from, and it turned out weird anyway, so took it out. Also, kinda wanted to put text on there, but took it out 'cause it looks unneccessary.

As always, I played around with textures and stuff and came up with a whole different versions that I ended up liking ^_^' and I can't decide... But I put up this version because it has that "Noir-ish" feel to it I think.

Original Texture-less Version
More textures

No widescreen this time because the angles look better 4:3

vectory simple-ism

[Edit]: After using it on my own desktop, decided to change the background to black because the textured bg looks weird. But I did include a bit of texturing on Mirielle still.

Fully Textured version

    The vector is neatly done, though I find the background is a bit too simple.

    Wow, stylish! The fact that using texture is cool ( I haven't try it yet >.<),and such limited palletes, you made the wall looks simply great. And of course, flawless! Great work, Rose.

    Awesomeness! I just happen to have been rewatching some eps Noir last night, which is one of my fave series ever, so I love the artistic simple approach you took with this wall! ^^

    I love the colors of the vector! They look awesome.
    Gotta agree with Chloe and annakee, i also think the background is too simple
    Anyway, nice one!

    Hmm, strong contract :) Your vectors are always flawless, though this hurts alittle bit the eyes when you look at it for too long. Though, still ~It's lovely <3.

    Anyhoo...I like these kind of wallies, with the background all black, and in this case, it works. Neat vector and cool! :D
