Artist Comment

First of all this is my submission for Vectory's contest. I had something else planned but after my computer broke down... well it was back to the drawing board for me. I decided to take a scan from Takeshi Obata. The difficulty in it was that the colours seemed to so diffuse there was no telling were one starts and when the other ends. I tihnk I pulled t off quite well. :)

I absolute love Raito's expression and pose in this pic. I hope the title suits the work since it's the feeling I wanted to expose.

Now for some details:
layers 250
music impression MyChemicalRomance, Miyavi,
most difficult part Yagami's trousers
hoteru-no-shiki ~Pure Light~
wings-lovers vectory free--wallers
feathers-of-eternity celestial-luminesse hotness-wallies

    oh god this is amazing. so detailed. god, no great vector!

    woah, awesome details kashi-san! :) esp for the background... and from the thumbnail, it looks like a scan :)

    one thing though, it looks a bit.. odd, that some parts have softer (almost airbrushed) shading, while other parts are crisp cell-shaded. Esp on his skin, I think it looks a bit out of place that it looks more painty and airbrushed while his hair is so sharp... You can try using gradients, but still keep the edges/contours between the colours/shapes sharp and vectored-like.

    anyway, good luck on the contest! ;)

    Wai this is a very good vector~! It's detailed and you did a nice work with the shading. And I luv his expression and the bg~ ^_^ [well, that may also be cuz I'm a great Raito fan :)]. Good job~! +fav

    Excellent detail and the colors look great, though like Maple said, it looks a bit strange in some places because of the contrast of vector and "airbrushed" shading. Other than that, great job!

    I thought the artwork of death note is impossible to vector but you make that exception. Really great vector!
