The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi: Faded Memories

Noizi Ito, The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, Yuki Nagato, Vector Art


Artist Comment

Well I think I've seen this vectored at least twice already, but I've been dying to do it myself so here it is. This has got to be the best picture of Yuki out there! When I first saw it I thought it was a fanart because of the outfit.

Easiest Part: Hair
Most Fun Part: Eyes
Hardest Part: Flowers, I guess

I'm a bit tired for a good description right now :P

Well I wanted my vector to be different, so instead of putting the little writing on the book that's in the scan, I turned her book into a photo album/scrapbook. I made the images sepia-toned and kind of old-looking, hence the "faded" part of the title. I know the photos aren't perfectly done, but I kind of like that, it adds to the scrapbook look.

The tape brushes I used on the book are by sanami276 at DeviantArt. And of course, I didn't vector the little photos, but I tried to choose the right pictures.

Outline- 6 hrs
Colouring- 4 hrs
Other- 1 hr
Total- 11 hrs
Vector- 41
Other- 25
Total- 66

Well that's all I can think of! Arigatou for any comments, faves, or full views! Or criticisms even! Go ahead and rip it apart! Aha-ha....anyways. Love the support <3

    I love this image of Yuki! It's my favorite. I wanted to vector it too but I don't think I could do as good as you did. ^_^ The lines and coloring are perfect and I love how you made the book into a photo album! I would have never thought of that. Great work!

    Saw this when I was stopping by in the SOS-Dan's group page. And I was thinking: "I am definitely fav-ing this."

    I love this picture of Yuki and I'm glad someone decided to vector it.

    I know I'm still quite gone, but I can't help it when I see a really nice vector and comment it. XD And the purple got me to full view this. :3

    I'm glad you vectoed Yuki because she's my fav character. :D The patterns when well for her dress and this is something I defiantely adore. You really captured the eyes and I'm quite surprised how the effects went. :o

    I'm not sure if you used Illustrator for the outlines, but they're so frickin straight so that's why I thought you did? :x

    Well can't wait to see some more.
