lately this has become a problem.


edit | per popular request, i have lightened the skirt and changed it from green to another color. and made the window bigger so you could see the jaquard texture =]. the cape was originally just black though, since i wanted to keep the focus towards the hair and face. so that is just going to stay black --"

and decided to enter it into dark-wallies contest, although i didnt initially want to

credit and many thanks are due to kitten for coming up with the title and for supporting me through this vector XD
i know already a new work from me, but it was rushed XD


vector #19
based on xxxHOLIC screenshot
20hrs//88 layers//450mb
floral brushes//gvalkyrie
splatter brushes//shad0ws//petesplat
floral pattern//toybirds
jacquard texture//anduniestock


THE HAIR | soooo i really wanted to do a scan featuring some crazy hair. i've had the idea for this type of hair for quite some time now, so i'm happy to have finally executed it. lots of dissolve-blending option to get that glow and floral brushes. on a side note i did like all the hair and then FORGOT TO SAVE so i had to redo it--i almost cried T_T.

THE COLORS | i was originally going for a brighter colored vector, with bright hair and bright clothes, but i was so sick after finishing the hair i couldnt do it again for the clothes, as a result i got to the crazy color version. i actually prefer that version over the one submitted here, but i think most people would like the softer colors, so i played with it to get this color scheme

THE WALL | gomen for the brush-whoredness on the sides but her hands were REALLY poorly vectored so i had to cover them. i was going to do like some stitches and severe blood on her neck, but i decided to keep her skin flawless, without any marks--i hate to soil that face! so instead i just brushed some blood onto her clothes and below her, i hope they look ok --" blood is so hard to do right. and once you start you cant stop so i had to redo it a couple of times to take come blood out. and i couldnt figure out a nice way to text in the title soo it will remain textless except for my sig which hopefully is small enough--plus its on the side of the screen that no one ever looks at =]

    wish you lightened her skirt or something, for a minute there i though she was cut in half!

    Came out great, I love all the textures added.
    I would actually recommened you change
    the texture on the floor to something more floor based.
    Unless it's carpet, if it's a carpet than it's fine.
    I love the blood and smooth look you added, great hair and
    I'm happy we thought of a nice color scheme to change it to. :3

    That's so dark! I can't see anything! *blind cause of the darkness*
    This is such an amazing wall!
    Everything fits perfectly
    It's just that I don't know the details of her dress anymore...
    but everything else is great! XD

    Hmmm... It's a tricky piece...
    I love the shadows, her hair is marvelous. You did a great job on that. The contrast darkness & blood red & textures are both great. It is an image that gets to you. It really suggests intense, silent pain. So congratulations for all these!
    On the other side, it is a bit too dark. Not only in mood but also in actual lighting. At first I also thought she was cut in half. I don't quite understand her pose. Where's all that blood coming from? No hand? Neck! :-) I need a ray of light.
    I like your work and I understand all the effort, but the darkness and the pose make it a bit...odd.
    Congratulations nevertheless on a good dark piece! You could enter the contest!

    Yes. Don't worry! :-) She is surrounded by blood (behind and in front of her there are stains of blood), so I couldn't see where it was coming from. The pose of the character is also a bit odd and that is not your fault. Nevertheless, the hair and the delicacy of her expression and of her face are great (they deserve a fav).
    I'm looking forward to your new work! Keep it up! :-)
