mt submision for the vector-wallers contest
highlighted at wings-lovers, vector-wallers and main featured at sakura--cb

Started today, finished today. (please don't ask how x_x )
Now, what to start with? For start, I LOVED this scan! Acordin to Scanpi, this is from Koakumana Kanojo (to be sincere, I never heard of it). I knew I had to make a wall out of this, but I never actualy knew wall. Vectoring alone would be too simple. But wile browsing around YouTube, I found a beautifull vid featuring Westlife's "The Rose". I didn't even need more.

First step: vector it ~ it asasinated me! T_T The hair literaly kiled me. Whit so many twistes and turnes I am amazed that I am still alive. The dress wasn't simplear eather. Boy, did it kill me OX . But after all, I did it to myself.

I didn't vector the flower petales ~ my patience was woring out (after 8 howers of vectoring, could ou blame me?). But I loved the roses in he hair. And to give hem a bigger role in this, I vectored some (real) rosas I found on the net (why can't I find anime-stile flowers?). After the "sunflower" incident, I got more experience whit vectoring flowers. But I nearly kiled myself (again) since he roses I liked and wonted to vectro WERE RED! So, on a side I had a sample, on the other, I had whad some scarlet roses to make. Vectoring them took me 2 howers.

At first I intended to make a wole fiald of white rosas, but after a wile ... *frustrated* I AM NO SUPERWOMAN *sight* ... So I was saved by thise wondarfull brushed. Using them relaxed me ... :pacman:

But there was still a backgrount to be done. Well, that ment only one thing: back to the drawing bord (literaly). Vector soething simple, add a few efects, try some diferent stiles, a bit of photoshop magic here and there and some burned brain celes and here it is. (pwef :hmpf: )

Ok. Maby after this I'm going to go lower (I hope) and chach up on some reading. But Untill then, wenever I ake a look at the result, I can simply hear those hevenly lyrics ...

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose

Thy might seme sad, and the melody might have a slight of melacholy, but it had to pe a joyfull and happy atmosfere, because the fealing of love witch boght the song and my vall (ore so I see it), can only be a joyfull fealing (::me=poet::)

What else can I say. This has been the hardest thing I have ever vectored up to day but it is my personal favorit work. Took 12h per total, scan can be found here if somebody planes to comit suacide by vectoring it and a vid with Weslife's song can be found here (please say it fits my wall ^_^' ). And now, it's time to say my groups.

    Wow. That is amazing. The strokes are so fluid and the details of the plants on the left and right and her jewelry really add a little bit of ornateness that balances really well. I knew it was going to look good even from the small preview, lol. Great job!

    p.s.: the flowers are really well done too, in fact I keep seeing things that are awesome
    p.p.s.: woohooo 1680x1050 rez! :)

    Wow! Realyl love the creative idea! I don't know how you suddenly after knowing how to vector you become a demon vector. :o It's so frickin quick. I think you have at least 5 hours of sleep because of so much work on it. XD

    Despite the jaggyness with the outliens at some parts this is still just beautiful!

    Definately I was speechless like Sinever. This is really something beautiful! I was strucked especially it's Carnelian's artwork once again. :) Carnelian rules in the world of art and CG. >:D

    I'm don't like vectors but this one really impressed me o_o I don't need to say the great job you done on it, I'm just stunned! Also I liked those plants/flowers effects, specially those plants made by circles, very interesting.
    My only complaint is abou the sky which looks a little weird for me...

    Wow. This is gorgeous. Reminds me of the old days. Exellent color. Its almost monochrome, but the yellow in the horizon is a nice touch.
