Le Portrait de Petit Cossette: Cossette

Artist Comment

So this would be the first vector trace I've ever done in my life. I've been working on tracing this screenshot on and off for the past two-three months. I used Adobe Illustrator CS2 for the actual vector trace (had almost 30 layers), then Adobe Photoshop CS2 for everything else. I made the seamless wallpaper pattern from Enchantedgal's stock photo here. I wish I could post the original resolution, though.

This was actually more of an exercise in boredom than anything else. I just made this vector to familiarize myself with Illustrator's environment, so I probably won't make another one anytime soon.

If there's anything I should fix, please tell me about it. I'm not too familiar with file exportation and such, so the image might not have come out as intended.

    oooh is this the vector you were talking about? i've wanted to vector something from this anime. and i have to say (even though it didnt get very many favs) this is a very nice vectoring job, esp for first time. i think all first timers should use illustrator because it really does produce more beautiful vectors (i havent really learned yet T_T and am now too lazy)

    ok i need to talk about the actual vector or else i'll get banned or something. i really want to encourage you to do more vectors! you will be better in no time and i think you have talent :P.

    few ideas for next time, i see you have used a few gradients here and there to give the image more depth. this is nice and you should continue to use gradients, but i would also say do some more shadows as well, it will really help lift your character off the screen. also if you do want to do that sort of flat coloring, its always nice to either do texture which gives it a sort of dull look or add some extra subtle coloring (with like blur or something) to the parts of the clothes/face that should be highlighted. and a final thing that you might want to try are colored outlines, they are always great but take a lot of energy to finish.

    the only complaint i have is the texture in the background, it doesnt fit at all with the smoothness of the vector, so i wish you vectered the pattern or at least used some sort of filter to get some smoothness.
