Artist Comment

My first vector.
Well i dont have much to say.
It took me quite a while to finish it, thou i think i could have done better . . . maybe . . .
Those three girls are not very important in the manga but i really liked them (actually there are four but i couldnt fix ones hands so i left her out) OX

I have to say the shine of their hair was the most problematic . . . beside finding the right skin color (maybe they should be paler)
And well i had to guess the shadows so those might be wrong too . . .
And the wall in the bg just looks awefull . . . ~_~

. . . so i dont really know why i'm posting this but if i keep working on it i'll probably just throw it away . . . (and i dont wanna do that . . . i worked quit hard)

Fullview please and comment

When was the last time a vector gave you shivers? Peezhoun's very first vector will do just that!
Such neat lineart, and a rather desperate setting will make you want to view it over and over. The soft, yet vibrant colors against the heavy shadows create an awsome balance. Fantastic work, Peezhoun! Please keep it up!

    Great use of gradients, and such pure and dynamic outlines. It's simple, vibrant and full of emotions. Lovely vector!

    I thought I recognised this. It's captures the scene perfectly, with the mixture of mystery, fear, and desperation. But to ease out the negative emotions you've used such gentle and soft colouring. And the way the colours fade in & out is so smooth. You've done a fantastic job to capture this from the small manga panel!

    It's a very emotional scene,you did wonders making the scan more vibrant than before.

    First vector? wooow.
    Love the emotion, and the colors are great too.

  13. kashikosa Feb 04, 2008

    Absolutely stunning work fr your first vector... What am I saying?! This is a fabulous work as it is! Very good use of gradients and the colors are fantastic. They don't need to be paler, the skintone is really fitting. I really like the way you showed the girls' emotions.^^ This is a definite beauty, be assured!
    Can't wait to see more~

    :( I could not see the anguish from far away but now I do. Very nice.

  15. aozoraskies Feb 06, 2008

    At first when I saw the tiny thumbnail in both the popular art and the highlighted art, I was wondering what was so great about it. then I full-viewed it. WOW. the anguish is so ....so...emotional, so touching, it just grabs the heart....I know i'm not describing it well. I just cannot believe this is your first. the outlines are wonderfully dark and dynamic! the colours are soft yet somewhat attractive yet edging towards a a more depressing feel..haiz not a great way to say it either...but I love it. Faving this! you deserve the highlight big time. and I hope to see more great work from you!

    Hey! Are you kidding! Your picture is awsome! just take a look at my pics... they look like kindergarten skribbles next to yours!

  17. Dornatela Feb 10, 2008

    Peez! Your vector looks amazing! It's really nice to see it on MT (besides on your comp).
    I really love the line art and how you colored it is just beyond me. It really looks amazing. Can't wait for the next vector. PLEASE HURRY! I'm getting Peezhoun-vector-addicted. XD XD XD
    It's your fault...

  18. Fran Retired Moderator Feb 11, 2008

    It's been a while since the last time I saw something as emotional as this one. Specially in the vector art category.
    I love the contrast between the outlines and the colors. It's amazing.
    I just love it. Keep it up

    great picture for the first vector....

    really beautiful and professional looking vector you have done, and especially as your first ! love the scan you used on the wall, the characters really aren't so important but i have always liked them too and the emotions they are showing really gives nicely powerful and dramatic atmosphere to your work. lining is very neat and stable looking ~ usually when there is really sharp edges and forms, the line seems to go bit squared on quite many vector works which i have seen, but not seeing the line going squared here at all. colouring is really stunning ! like the way you used strong redish and orangish colours on one character's hair and the others are quite pale, giving nicely brightness and contrast. also like the way you change the colouring on characters' hairs, it's going so smootly and naturally looking. overall the colouring is smooth and well blended, it's really lovely to watch the flow of the colours. i think you managed to do the shadings well, though i think they could have been little bit darker when going more further away from the light source and when coming closer to the black shadow on the wall. i also think the background is very fitting since it makes you focus on the characters and brings them out to be seen nicely. you have done great job and thank you for sharing it with us ~ +fav !
