your vector is really neat! ^^
the background looks great :D
yoru-chan will love it for sure!
Happy super belated birthday, Yoru-chan! Lol, I'm what, 3 months late? Your birthday was on April 4th. At this rate I just hope to get everyone's gift done before their next birthday XD
I chose to do this image for you quite awhile ago. I noticed you liked Kannazuki no Miko and I wanted to vector this image so ta-da. I really love the pic, because I've never seen a full-size scan of it plus they look really cute.
The vector was average difficulty. Nothing complicated, but that long hair can get to you after a while XD I'm satisfied with the result. And this time I blurred the outlines a little so they're not so sharp. I usually forget to do that.
Now, I didn't plan to wall this. I finished the vector last night, and looking at it I was like "It's the perfect shape for a wallpaper...but I don't have any good ideas, and that's when I end up making a bad wall. So if I don't come up with an idea now, I'm leaving it as a vector." But somehow the thought of a Japanese folding screen came into my head and I was like "that might match the scene" so I started from there. Made the byobu (didn't know it was called that; had to look it up). I thought it might work, so I went ahead and finished the wall with the window and sunset. Entire wall made from scratch, except the sakuras on the screen which was a stock photo. Sunset was something I painted a while ago. Didn't plan on making a sunset wall--originally it was a blue sky--but it looked plain. Anyways, I'll let you guys tell me how the final result came out XD
-Time: 11.5 hrs
-Original Size: 2050x1592 (Much smaller than usual; I wanted thicker outlines.)
-Time: 4 hrs
-Layers: 8 (After lots of merging 0_0)
Total Time: 15.5 hrs
PSD Filesize: 28.8 MB
Project duration: April 4 - July 8
I hope you like it Yoru-chan! :3 So so sorry for my lateness ^^ And thanks to all who comment, fave, or full-view. Constructive criticism is appreciated! I know it's not perfect ;)
[EDIT] Hm, I realise the window is hard to recognize...anyone have any ideas how to improve it?
[EDIT2] I updated it to make the sunset look more recognizable, hope it helps~
[EDIT3] There's something about the lighting that's not right, so if you want it to be a window good, if you want it to be a wall the that's good too XD
More Kannazuki no Miko Wallpapers

such a clean vector, it's amazing.
And the background matches very well.

You always make me want to wall, I'm feeling better
from my cold already~
Great vectoring as usually (I feel like those fan boys who
praise the main character "wonderful Hakari-chan!~")
Ok back to the wall, Nice atmosphere in this one
I love their faces and how Chikane is covering Himeko.
The window in the back, if thats what it is...oh it is ok...I think it could some
darkening on one side, to make it look more like a window and not
like the wallpaper.
Aside from that, nice touch on the flowers...a bit too
blurred for my taste, much rather see you vector them.
Great job overall, lazy queen <3

Omone Jul 08, 2008

Ah finally another work from you~ xD missed your work lol
Nice to see you around again.
Firstly nicely done background and lovely japanese screen there(nicely textured)
Secondly awesome vector as always =]
Thirdly the western windows might not fit the japanese mood so well =D would be better if you change them to those olden japanese style windows~
Lastly great work and hope to see more work from you again XD and of course a fav!

You're really getting better at this. I know everyone has gotten to the state of where now I'm quite below average at my work currently. T_T Gotta start warming up on vectors and wallpapers. btw, I've never seen that image before srsly. I gotta see where did ya find that. D<
Something about the boarders for the windows look weird. It might've been because there's no reflection on the window and the shadow is a little off. Though the vector is really nice, color tone fits with the sunset, and liked the textures and patterns on the board thing. ;)
jaymac Jul 15, 2008
I can only agree with Lunariha on ASH-Hikari's works - always clean, thorough, sharp as a tack with extrodinary backgrounds to boot. And once again, this is no exception.
I am somehow beginning to become quite an admirer to the artwork of Kannazuki No Miko a bit more, even though I don't know mch about the series in particular or yet alone seen it. They have not released this anime in Australia as yet (the manga is now available here, but the anime isn't).
Love your work ASH!
