Artist Comment

Way too tired to write a description right now. But I have to since the edit option no longer exists (we really need that fixed).

The Lacus living in my head hasn't been too happy with me since I took her off my userpage and haven't vectored her for a while. So she made me do this. (Actually, I've wanted to do this pic for a long time. Before I even knew what vectoring really was, I told myself "I'm going to learn to vector so I can vector this picture." True story. And here it is.)

Ah, well this image is total win. Lacus, in red frilly dress, with black tights, with curly pigtails, too kawaii. I'm surprised I'm the first to vector it (now I'm going to hear lots of "oh I was gonna vector that!"). Hm, well the original scan isn't great quality, but I can't complain since I've done a thousand times worse.

Apologies for that part of the dress near the bottom right where it looks ridiculous. I hate frills in the first place, but reconstructing them? Heh heh. It's not too noticeable now though. Background also sucks, but I wasn't in a great mood when I was making it. It's the vector that counts, ne?

It's called Bubbly because Lacus looks so incredibly cheerful. Plus there's that bottle...wouldn't Lacus be sixteen in this picture? Whatcha got in the bottle Lacus?

This probably isn't my greatest vector. That's okay. My next ones will make up for it. I have no "simple" vectors planned for awhile.

Oh, and the weird diagonal title is just my lovely creative way of covering parts of her dress that I couldn't reconstruct. And I'm sorry if some of you don't like the blurry pompoms.

Hardest part: Staying awake while writing this. And the minor reconstruction.
Easiest part: Everything else?

Time: [Outline=10.5 hrs]+[Colouring=6 hrs]=[16.5 hrs]
Layers: 38
Original Size: 3200x4216
PSD Filesize: 44.8 MB
Duration: Nov. 30 - Dec. 4

P.S. I'm on my Dad's computer and for some reason, images in MT don't show up, so I can't see what I'm doing nor can I find the original scan. Therefore I'll submit to groups etc. later.

I hope I didn't forget anything. Happy holidays from me and Lacus minna~ We wish you all lots of sleep.

    As much as I hate criticizing your work, Ashy-chan, but I must gripe about one thing. The puffs on her dress. They're a little too blurred, but I've done the mistake of blurring too much on some of my stuff too. ^^ But I really never saw this scan before and it's great that you were the first one to have vectored it! <3

    Nice.I like it. :)

    i just finished vectoring outlines for one chobits scan, and it had a 142343485 times crazier dress and the scan wasnt like great quality, but its like okay, i just know a secret on how to reconstruct that kind of dresses, ill pm you ;)
    as always neat and clean, yeah the blurriness sucks but i dont care XD
    i dont know if i wanna fave it though.......
    oh ok, i already did it XD

  7. andrewong1980 Dec 05, 2007

    Ooh...never seen this scan before. And now it's vectored too. I too am curious why you blurred out the fluffy bits on her dress so much. My guess is that you were blurring out the champagne(?) droplets and suddenly flipped out before blurring out all the white you could see in the image. LOL! ^_^'

    "The Lacus living in your head"? That's so funny. I can just see her hovering over you and guilt-tripping you in her regal voice, "I am Lacus Clyne. Did removing me from your userpage make you happy? Is that what you really want? Please stop doing meaningless things and vector scans of me instead." She's so manipulative that way; but that's what made her so awesome in the first series, IMO. :)

    Your vector is beautiful. I couldn't find anything noticably wrong with the frills. The details on the bottle and her hair impressed me a little. My one other complaint is her eyes. I see very distinct poligons there and I think it would have benefited from some filtering. Other than that, everything's lovely. :nerd:

    Nice to see you vectoring again (plus vectors of Lacus-sama are always welcome). Faving this for Lacus' cute expression and hot leggings (not too crazy about her hair in this one). Thanks for sharing this and I hope you're doing all right, ASH. Until the next time, take care! Cheers! ;)

    ^^ she looks like a model! i told you before lacus looks great in wine red! hach! *dreams*

  9. Lariel Dec 05, 2007

    @_@ Lacus'... hair... well, I've never seen it in curls before.
    Adorable vector- but I thought her standard color was pink instead of RED (gomen >.<). Well, lol. XD

  10. saki-xan Dec 05, 2007

    Lacus is well *-* I love your lines, are so thin *.* my screen is so dark, red background truth? I see black ~_~ Favorite undoubtedly ^^

  11. rika23 Dec 06, 2007

    great job as usual :3
    She look cool there XD XD

  12. moonescape Dec 06, 2007

    Your outlines always still impresses me :) Problem in my opinion is her pink hair is well quite monochrome, the shades look quite dull and not so vivide. ^_^' Plus those white puffy stuff the ones near to her neck. Well it looks imcorrect especially how some of the white overlaps with the hair. x_x Well that's all and I'm glad someone considered vectoring this I mean the scan was just horrible. *_*

  13. Idril Dec 06, 2007

    The vector looks well done but I guess the background color looks so dark and odd that's the vector looks merged with background >.<
    Maybe you added another color... but anyway I like this one! +favs

  14. shadowxlink2 Dec 06, 2007

    WHOA! this was the frilly dress that you were talking about ASH-Sensei! A very shiny dress, I can't really notice any of the blurs, probably cause I'm not sure where to look for it heh. A fave :D.

  15. Milis Dec 06, 2007

    It's so so wonderful! My dear Lacus! This dress suits her perfect!
    I really really like the picture!

    Thanks! :)))

  16. Kukuru Dec 06, 2007

    I love this! I'm glad you vectored it - and you've done such a lovely job! She is really cute - thanks for much for sharing :D

  17. FrostyWolf359 Dec 07, 2007

    Well done! Another good vector by you! I cant wait for the complicated ones that are coming up.

  18. saphira0589 Dec 07, 2007

    Kinda seems like an ad for champagne or something. XD The shades of her dress are so pretty. Neat outlines as always. And it's a perfect vector for the season especially since Christmas is coming soon. The pompoms do seem a little odd, but that's just me, I suppose.

  19. KriisEH Dec 07, 2007

    AMAZING! This vector is soo amazing! Haha. :)
    You did a very good job on it! The more time spent, the more it's beautiful. :D

  21. Omone Dec 08, 2007
