Dedicated to my friend, Omone. Her pet rat Ritchie is in a better place now. <3

PHEWWWW...I'm tired. lol I thought I could easily tackle this, but boy, was I wrong. At first I was easygoing with the line art; it was not difficult. But then when I started to color, I panicked. I literally panicked. So I did this (and I'm not kidding either)---I drank caffiene soda and began coloring. When I got to Yuki's tunic I stopped and banged my head on the desk, thinking "I can't do this, I can't do this~" I even switched over to Illustrator to do the lines there. But I hate Illustrator to death because...because..I just hate it. I only keep the program in case I really needed it. But since I was almost done with the vector, I just decided to finish where I started it, and that is my beloved PS CS3. <3

Now about the difficult parts. First up was the eyes. If you guys remember "The Theory of Haruhi" in my gallery, the eyes were too blurred and ugly. But now, thanks to staring at Ashy-chan's Haruhi eyes of her vector, I got it down. But I only got the color of the scan to help me out, so I just chose those colors. So if they look dark, it's because it's in a nighttime setting. Please don't bite my head off. ><

Well, you guys know about the tunic...AH. There is Mikuru's present. A transparent layer is used here. So that sucked. XD I had to draw the transparent lines of her hair on another layer so it wouldn't overlap. Then there is the chocolate heart. I think it still sucks no matter how many times I tried to fix it. As long as it didn't look 2-D, I'm good. XD

Finally, what gave me the least amount of trouble was the coloring (the majority of it) and making snow. I was gonna use real life snowflakes, but I shook my head at that the last minute. The scan provided flurry-shaped snowflakes but I just went back to the simple oval and circular types because it was the most simple thing I could come up with. I was gonna add a lot of things but I didn't want to ruin it any more than I've done to it. Precaution notices, you know. XD

I've got lots more plans for vectoring right now, so tell me how you guys like the wallie, for now, I'm going to fall asleep on the floor because I've been working on this for two days straight. The times I stopped was when I was sleeping. So yeah, I was too lazy to eat. (So I guess it is possible to lose weight while vectoring, Ashy-chan HAHA)

    How did you make the snow? Did you make dots and blur them?

    Really, really thanks a lot *-*

    I adore this! It's perfect entity-chan! Outlines and colours are all great!
    Kya, colouring Yuki would have scared me, good job seeing it through.
    Lovely job on Mikuru's gift transparency too! It's little details like that that can make a wall even more fun to look at.
    This is going to be my desktop :D
    Oh yeah, forget dieting, eating healthy, and exercising...vectoring is all you need! *Guaranteed or your money back* I reached an all-time low yesterday XD
    And you used one of my vectors to help you with the eyes? Which one, I wonder?
    Anyways I can't say much else. It's perfect.

    Well I don't have much to add to what everyone else said, Excellent job all around, simply beautiful. Everything is so smooth and clean and the transparency on the wallpaper is very nice. Essentially everyone else has already said everything I can think of, the rest is beyond my ability to express. Great work ^_^
