Wow. That has to be the most unimaginative title that I've ever used. But it fits with what I was wanting to portray, so I guess that is what matters most.

Hours: 5
Layers: 46
Inspiration: Kimono Fabric

This is a vector/wallpaper of a piece of Kimono Fabric that I found online and fell in love with. I love kimono fabric and the old style of Japanese dress, and this allowed me to make a wallpaper with both in in one. I used mostly fabrics (and some origami paper) that I scanned myself, but some came from another website that will be credited below. I altered some of the image during vectoring, but I tried to keep it the same for the most part, and I lengthened it out to make it fit widescreen. I wanted the bold lines and textures to make it feel a little like a cut-out and have a bit of a vintage flare with the colors and fabrics. I'm pleased with how it turned out, so I hope you like it!

P.s. - I'll add the standard screen version whenever photobucket decides to stop messing up the link >_<

    A beautiful combination of a simple yet graceful vector with rich illustrious textures. What's not to love?

    you used patterns on every part of the kimono and still made it look balanced and not overwhelming, that's a scoop around, like a rainbow of traditional art you did as you said a very elegant, classic look on this wall, nice job.
    just think that maybe the "elegance" text is not that neccesary, it shows by itself anyway.

    Really nice work here! I'm a big admirer of all the traditional art in Japan (especially of kimono art and ukiyo-e) so I was highly attracted to this...
    I love the bold use of textures, and the fact you preserved the feeling one gets from the original image on the kimono. This obviously deserves a fav and that's just what it gets ^^

    I love kimono fabric also, and you have a lovely selection of fabrics here! You did a great job of capturing the texture and "feel" of the fabric as well! Thank you!
