Highlight *.* unbelievable! MANY THAKS

Finally this is finished OX
this was supposed to be my entry for "Battle of the bands" contest of vectory ^_^'
but my time didnt let me finish it for that
this is my entry for two contests:
wings-lovers and vector-wallers contests
so winged charas for wings lovers and "Dream and fantasy" theme of Vector Wallers
guess it suits for both
Everything is vectored and painted
simply love to vector this scan, cause Kamui is one of my fav charas ever ^_^' the best par was painting his eyes
the hardest part...painting the gears [and i thought it was going to be easy hehe]
the scan: here from one of my dear friend T! :nya:
for the gears i used this by Oriya-chan!
then did the outlines on AI, then painted on PS, the red threads are of PS, grunge brushes from Photoshopbrushes.com, and Aethereality, gear textures is "Rust Flakes" from PS CS2, layers..........really dont remember, they were too much... T_T

The main point in this one is that somtimes destiny is revealed, but destiny the most part of times, destiny is a mystery, or revealed by someone who wants to change it, cause it dont likes the way it will be, in this wall, destiny is represented by the threads, and the gears are the engine that move the world, the world that has his own thread too, and it will be destroyed by its own gears ^^'

really dont mind of that explanation... ^_^'
comments are always appreciated
and many thanks to Neko-chan for helping me with the title^^
(also the title is based on a song of Queens of the Stone Age...)

and btw many thanks for the comments and favs, sorry if I can t reply to all, but Im really busy with my job >.<

Highlighted in vectoring art groups? Well, *click*, highlighted in the largest group of them all, Minitokyo XD


A few things that make this submission so great: the depth, the detail, the quality and attention to the two mentioned beforehand and also the subtle lighting and textures.

The paint job is quite remarkable and this is a phenomenal effort. Well done!

    I can't believe no one has commented yet! (well, okay, it's late where I am ^_^') The detail of this vector is simply amazing! The gears look so realistic, and the quality of Kamui is so well done... It looks like a very high quality scan at first. This is definately a fav for me, and might go on might desktop ^_~

    Good job! :]

  19. kuroimisa Retired Moderator Jul 21, 2007

    I think the greatest thing you've done with the vector is paint is as well ^.^ The biggest thing in wallpapers is that most look flat without exploring the possibility of creating something 3D with a 2D thing (wallpaper canvas), but you've done this incredibly well :D KUDOS! X3

  20. gaara-no-shukaku Jul 21, 2007

    Yay, lotsa highlights! >__<
    Anyway, like I mentioned before, this is a superb combination of various things. Deserves the highlight. ^.^

  21. MapleRose Retired Moderator Jul 21, 2007

    nice job ^^ wow... you must be insane to vector all those things in the background *-* ...

    the shading and highlights on the characters look a bit over-smudged, thus losing some of the texture and clean-ness, I like the subtle painted shading on the wings better.

    anyway, the background is amazing, and congrats on the highlight(s) ^__^

  22. ReBeKiCHii Jul 22, 2007

    totally awesome wallpaper! :D
    the background just looks fabulous, there so much detail in it! a really clear and sharp vectoring and painting of kamui and fuma! i absolutely love it because it's such a beautiful artwork! :D keep up the amazing job!

  23. yothsothgoth Jul 22, 2007
