Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny: A Small Gift

Artist Comment

Dedicated to saki-xan One of my newest friends at MT ^_^. She was nice enough to dedicate her beautiful vector to me, and so I of course wanted to return the favour! I hope you like it saki-chan ^_^.

Ah well, this one was kinda hard >.<. Take a look at the scan it came from:
Clicky!
As you can see a lot of Meer is cut off. I had to draw in more than half her skirt, her legs, part of her jacket, parts of her hair, etc. And some other parts, like the little present, had text covering them. So I had to make up all of that part myself. My most difficult extending-job yet! But I did it (after a million redos). I know it's not perfect but bear with me, okay? I tried my best XD Plus I think it's not bad!

Now, why this pic, if it was so hard? Well I knew I was making it for saki-xan, and I wanted to do a vector she'd like, and I'm pretty sure that Meer is a favourite of hers (you like Meer, right?). But most of the nice Meer scans have already been vectored. I found one that I was going to do, of Meer blowing a kiss, but then I saw saki herself was doing that vector :P So then I remembered this scan, and I thought it was really fitting since this is a gift vector and she's holding a gift. So I hope you like the pic saki-chan! (Plus, I love this pic of Meer, she looks so cute and I want that outfit!)

Hardest part: All the guesswork
Easiest part: Heh, whatever I could actually see
Most fun part: Putting the blush on her cheeks ;)

Time: 10 hrs
Duration: Aug. 16-18
Layers: 35
PSD file size: 67.3 MB
Tools: Adobe Photoshop CS2

This will probably be the last vector with this background style, I'm changing things up soon. But more about that next time. Comments, faves, and all that great stuff make me smile :) Arigatou for viewing and reading all this!

    When it comes to you doing extension lines you're way better than me. XD The skirt might be a little off, but it's suppose to be moving around so I'd say keep it like that. >:D

    I really love the smoothness and it looks perfect I'd say, to think you were able to do all of that. :o

    You and your vectors always seem to surprise me. :) Well done, I know saki-xan will love this. ;)

    lol nice! New icon, but I think that image has been repeated too much. OX

    Omigosh...this is a truly amazing feat of vectoring AND re-cging (remaking almost)! You've certainly come a long way, Hikari. Man, I still remember when you were first starting out. Anyway, I love Meer so I really love this vector. My first fav in months! Awesome job and I really hope you keep up the good work in future. Take care and cheers!

    :') I was sick and to meet a vector dedicated for my! Wow! :')

    This I love it, yeah! I love it! *-* to see so many perfection here, every detail that existed in Meer gift, and you, to have chosen this wonderful image!

    I like Meer, Lacus also, to saying truth, I like every girl of pink hair, muahaha >3

    I had forgotten this scan! Now that I see her I want to do Lacus that appears there >:D

    Beautiful lines, even I, with my technology vectoring do not manage to do them in top, believe that I am going to have to practise very much to achieve the tops, since it is very necessary to achieve the perfection ;)

    Adorable! It had to reconstruct great part of the skirt, which is so difficult! >3 and to accommodate the shades *-*

    FANTASTIC! THANKS SO MUCH! ;*

    Woow I love it. I've saw the scan is used in numerous sites. You should try vectoring Cagalli or Stellar next. for me?
