It's been a while since I've submitted a wall. I've been so busy with school and work. I started this wall quite some time ago, but have had zero time to work on it. I just tried to steal time here and there to work on it a little bit (read: I'm a procrastinator with my school work :p).

Anyway, my brother runs this figure blog: happysoda.com and he did these photos of Makoto: clickie. I thought they were really cute pictures. Well, one day I was looking at a bunch of scans here at minitokyo and saw this scan and it reminded me of my brother's figure. I was going to do the wall based on the scan, but I liked her pose, and having the full body of my brother's photos that I used one of my brother's photos of his figure..

Anyway, I vectored the figure, and then had to figure out what to do with the background. Well, I took the fence idea and added some tulips because they're my favorite. I found various images of tulips and vectored them, and found a stencil for a fence. I had to tweak that a little bit because the boards were really fat and I wanted them skinnier, and painted/vectored the fence.

For the mountains, I found an image from the Kanon game and used the mountain scape from that image (sorry I don't know where I put it!). The lake, brick path, and grass I painted/vectored different elements.

I know, I know, I suck at clouds :( .

    Makoto was my least favourite Kanon girl (not that I don't like her) but I do love her in that pose, especially in the opening sequence...it's great to see another Kanon wall. They're not that common. You did a wonderful job turning a figure into a vector and the background is so soft and lovely. Great work.
    And wow, your brother runs HappySoda? I read that blog all the time. I love his photography work ^^
