Well, I haven't submitted anything in a while, I know. I've been busy studying and doing last-minute schoolwork so I've been on a Photoshop hiatus (what, me, putting school before vectoring and walling? Amazing.) And this doesn't completely feel like a "recent" work since I actually did the Haruhi vector a while back. I was planning to make a wall like this and decided to start working early since I knew I'd be busy in June.
The vector of Haruhi was interesting. I know her grad gown is very simple; I made it up myself without anything to guide me and I'm not that good at such things. I also made her diploma :P. And I changed her hair ribbon colour to match her sash. I think her hair and eyes look nice though.
The wall I started about a month later (after changing the Haruhi vector fifty times). First I did the floor. Made it from scratch. Simple enough. Then the curtains. They started off as a stock photo, but I did quite a number on them, recolouring, painting, reshaping, etc. to make them match and not look too realistic. The table I also made from the top of my head. The legs look kind of off, but ignore that. The roses are actually taken from my friend's grad picture, lol. I had to edit out her hand and diploma though. The cap and books are stock, edited.
Then the text. I wanted something simple yet effective, and I think this works.
Since I'm a texture freak, I tried to add some texture, but it just didn't look as good.
Also, this wall doesn't look quite the way it did in the PSD file. After saving it as Jpeg it come out darker and a different colour...well you can see what I mean by looking at it here (bad quality screenshot, I know):
Oh, I also did the lighting of this wall myself (lighting is fun!). So a lot of this wall was from scratch.
So! I wanted this to be a simple grad wall, so graduates could have a wallpaper for the occasion. I imagine this scene to be Haruhi on stage getting her diploma (fast forward a few years of course, Haruhi won't be graduating for a while.) This is dedicated to everyone who is a 2007 grad, congratulations, we made it this far!
And I myself will be graduating in just over a week :) After that expect more work from me!

    Ahh ~~ Congratulation =D!
    The wall is simply beautiful ^^
    I really like the way you do in the background >.< ~

    Neat idea! The vector is well done, I can totally picture Haruhi doing that XD Love the colors as well. I feel that the flowers should also be vectored but other than that, nicely done!

    This is simply adorable, also it is not necessary to be very a perfectionist, because of it, this wallpaper and vector is good. I add to favorites for the good idea desu ~~~~~ XD

  4. Keough Jun 16, 2007

    Oh wow this is wonderful. A perfect theme!

    Interesting how this takes place behind the curtains. XD Well the curtains went well and to think you painted them. You have paiting skills. :D

    I really like the colours green, but it just seems very different with her. :o

    Vectors was really good. Such straight outlines I mean. What might be the problem is that there should be shades on the wrinkles for her graduationg clothes plus the collar.

    Maybe Chole-chan is right about the flowers being vectored or painting can be another option. :

    Though everything else went well.

    I'm quite surprised your graduating. o_0 I'm going to be a sophmore next year. Congratulation then, does that mean your going to college? :x
