Hi everyone! This is my first vector! I started vectoring about 2 weeks ago, and I was working mainly on this. I had another one just for practice but it was horrible, so I wanted to make something nice. I don't know I started with something as difficult as this one. In my mind it was difficult. It took very long to get all the details in. I wanted to ditch the frill details but in the end, I did them anyway. And I'm glad I did. The end result looks great to me :). I am satisfied :D.

I still don't know much about vectoring, but I'll learn more and make more :).

This vector is of Primula from Shuffle. I couldn't think of a 'good' title, she looked like a little princess to me and so I titled it just that. The frills took soooo long! There were so many of them, and they had some details to them which took even longer! The outlining took an especially long time because I aimed for "thin" lines, I don't know if they're thin enough :/. The coloring took a while as well because I had to go over the vector many times to make sure there aren't any color leaks. I'm happy in how the eyes came out, they look very close to the original scan, and I only reconstructed a bit. Some on the shoes because the shadows were probably covering it, and some of the hair over the eyes and eyebrows. I don't know if it would've been better to just have the eyebrows and eyes visible through the hair but I thought in reality that the hair would cover the eyes and so I did so. There were so many shadows even on the frills -_-. But in the end, it was really fun to do. I expect to do more vectors in the future :).

Sorry for the long rant :D.

The original scan is here from HanaKyouyama. Thanks to HanaKyouyama for finding an awesome scan.

Special thanks to ASH-Hikari! She inspired me to get into vectoring and also guided me along the way. Thanks ASH-Sensei! :D ASH-Sensei BANZAI! OUSH!

Program used: Photoshop CS2
Style used: Shape layers
Time: Outlining (28 hours 25 minutes) + Coloring (29 hours 30 minutes) = 57 hours 55 minutes. (See, I took long >_>, I guess I didn't expect to go that first on my first vector heh)
Duration: Dec. 1 - Dec. 12
Layers: Approx. 63
Psd. Filesize - 24.7 mb
Easiest Part - The background.
Hardest Part - The frills (so many frills!) and the hair(about 3 different colors for the hair).
Original size - 2191x3071 (Maybe I should've made it smaller for better quality :/)

Sorry about the quality, this is the best I could get. I hope people of MT will like this! Please be gentle when criticizing, this is my first one :).

I don't know what else to say so I'll stop here :D.

Enjoy and have a good day!

    Wow . . . this vector is amazing. I was skeptical about someone actually wanting to vector this complicated scan but YOU did. And you completed it at a first attempt no less! All I have to say is that you're extremely talented. *_* The lines are so smooth and controlled and the coloring is beautiful. Moreover this is a vector is Primula-chan, my favorite character from Shuffle! ^_^ Thank-you for your hard work!

  13. YoruAngel866 Dec 13, 2007

    OMG so amazing! Great job! do you know where can i find shuffle to download? i really want to watch it...

  14. Kazeryu06 Dec 14, 2007

    wowww she's so pretty! There's so much detail on the dress (lace and stuff), and even then you managed to make her hair very detailed (my diction is lacking sorry >_<). The thing that stands out most to me is the shading on the red curtain seems off. Maybe it's just that the color is so much darker, or...i dno ><. btw, in the anime the hair didn't show over the eyes, but who says you have to do what the animators do, neh? =P.

  15. Idril Dec 15, 2007
