I can't believe that's the first xxx-Holic wallpaper I've finished. D:

I've got 40 wallpapers in my gallery, a bunch of them only with females in it, a few with mixed couples and just 4 featuring men only. It's like some weird kind of female chauvinism, about time I changed that.

The scans for this wallpaper can be found here and here, the title is that of my favourite song from the Breath of Fire IV OST.
If I'd been smoking before doing this wallpaper I'm sure I would've stopped by now, CLAMP's smoke is so annoying to vector. I also learned once more why I use filled outlines, my programm does really nasty outlines but it would have been unnerving to do with filled outlines. If you want advise on how to vector their smoke, I'd say don't look at how much you've left; it's depressing.
I left the cobwebs out for this one, not because I'm lazy but why should I dwell on that cobweb thing if I could also explore the dualitiy of nature and the polarity of personalities. Also wasted an unholy amount of time just trying out different textures or patterns for their clothing. In the end I made the sun and moon patterns for their clothing myself (that's why they look so cheap XD). I'll provide two versions with other textures, those were taken from sailorchiron's great website. The border for this was a real hazzle, basically because I tend do get really sloppy after a while and that in turn is deadly for my vectoring of geometric shapes. I hope the border looks all right in the end.
It was real fun to do this, I could give them shinigami eyes and my boyfriend once pointed out that 'those guys' had to be gay, lol.

Textures were taken from Gallery Noctilucent and DA! patterns from Hybrid Genesis.
This and that are the alternative versions.

Hope you enjoy.

    Yay~ A xxxholic wallpaper that's not Yuuko ^_^'
    Most of the time xxxHolic is Yuuko~ And it's really nice to see xxxholic wallpapers of Watanuki and Doumeki =D
    Nice vector~ :) The smokes are annoying to vector, but you vectored them really well :D
    The textures and patterns used is really nice~ And the contrast in color :)
    You did a really awesome job!

    wow it so great...great job on textures and smokes

  4. Faqir May 22, 2008

    love the vector. love the texture. :D

    This is beautiful. I totally agree on Clamp smoke, the Mokona vector I did for the Oldsters layout had seriously reduced smoke do to a desire for my vectoring hand to stay attached to my arm. I'm stoked that you used my patterns! The overall design for this is awesome. Great work!

    woah! i love this one! nice scan used and love the
    vector very much! the thin and thick outlines are just
    great! nice sharp colors + the textures really fits the
    whole concept of the vector/wall. I like how you vector
    the smoke around them since the outlines are perfectly
    thin with no rigid lines and such though the background
    is kinda simple but you only focus on the characters which
    gives more serious feeling, Overall nice vector and texture
    used ;) double love for widescreen version! XD

    I love Watanuki and Doumeki to pieces XD
    The smoke might have been a pain to do but it looks great.
    I'm really liking the cool, subdued colours, and everything is so clean and sharp. Nice job ^_^

    *You did a very good job in the smoke and the textures in the boys' clothes. I really like Watanuki's clothes in the "that" version.*
