Artist Comment

This is only the second vector I've submitted that isn't a wallpaper. :) I love Kunie's artwork, it's funky, simplistic, has a quick, hand-sketched quality, and has nifty color schemes. I was perusing the galleries looking for something to use for the new Celestial Luminesse layout, because the winning vote was not to use an anime but to use an artist's work or something abstract. I thought this was perfect. It's different, it's kinda abstract, it's Kunie, it has stars, it's cute, it's customizable... This is the elegant version that I thought could stand alone in the gallery, but I'm experimenting with brighter and funkier versions for the layout.

Because of the star headbands, I went with muted sky blues for the outlines and little smock/shift/nightgown/dress things with little girls are wearing. I love doing white hair. Love it. I love leaving the whole face flesh toned without differentiating for the eyes and mouth. I love using flat panels of color. The only gradients are on the headbands and the lame bg. I vectored the sun and moon on the dresses, from scratch no less.

The title comes from Sanrio characters, a short haired girl (or boy, they're pretty androginous) and long haired girl that live on clouds and have star wands. So cute.

Total time: about 3 hours

    Kunie love <33 yay, new CL layout is gonna be Kunie =D

    Anyway, I like what you did with their clothes, the sun/moon idea is cool. The blue outline idea is cool, though I think the moon should be lighter than the sun XD

    Thank God I saw this, or I wouldn't have even checked the Kunie gallery (gorgeous artwork >.<)

    I like the blue outlines as well. And I'm loving the whole face being flesh-toned - very nice. I'm also a fan of white hair, so you earn some brownie points from me. XD

    Great job, and I'm looking forward to the new CL layout. :D
