One thing to say.. I LOVE YOU SHERYL! And thanks Kairi for making such a great vector! It's so neat and bright and christmasy, love it! :D Love the thin outlines 8)
Thanks so much everyone! For the b-day gifts, messages, ... for all the love you gave me! It really means a lot to me! It's great to know I have friends here that I can count on!
So here's a little vector as a way of saying "Thank you"
Worked on this all afternoon. Outlining wasn't hard, the coloring was the challenge.
I never did so much painting work on my life, and I was really scared of it 'cause I suck so much at painting :x
I'm afraid that there are lots and lots of flaws (I'm sure there are) visible to others because of the brightness of their screens >_<
This was the original image, no bigger version until December 3rd, but I couldn't wait. And it's no problem, I've worked with much smaller images (which I'll be re-vectoring soon btw).
I wanted to do the same type of coloring, so painting was the only way. Oh man, I barely use the smudge tool plus I
still haven't got a new mouse and I suck at using my tablet... you can see that, some lines are really weird...
She had these "huge" lips on the original image, but I thought the way I made them smaller looked better.
I'm not proud of the gloves, they were the most difficult for me. I couldn't find the right colors to blend :sweat:
Her hair was really fun to paint. (Sheryl's hair is so pretty and interesting XD)
Again, my best allies were the burn and dodge tool. They're wonderful :P
Ah and yes, I added a sparkle to her earring. Macross fans know how important the earring is.
No ideas for a bg, so I just tried to make it like the one in the original pic.
Last, I added some snow cause of the title.
Title comes from D.Gray-Man's 1st ED "Snow Kiss".
Not only I had that music playing but I thought it was fitting with the vector, Sheryl blowing a kiss, and it reminded me of winter so~
I wanted to make a wall out of it, but since there isn't much space it would look too busy (wall version @ AP later anyway~)
C&C is welcome (as usual)

Your getting better with those lines, nice job
on the painting of her hair. It looks great and I love
the flow of it all together. The bg's a little rough which I think
doesn't go with how lovely and soft she is.
But overall it's a beautiful vector and I love it.
Thanks Kairi <3

Wow, the shading on her face and clothes is absolutely perfect! <3 You enhanced the vector's quality by shrinking the lips, she looks better this way :) Overall, great job and it deserves my fav!
I'll be looking for the wallpaper version on AP ;)

Wow. A perfectly done Sheryl vector! o_0
I really thought that she's hard to vector...
The full view was really much better than the thumbnail~ I would have regret if I didn't see the full view.
Everything is awesome~ Flawless. And I really love the background! It's really cool! >.<
The only thing that I got to say is that, you should have made it wallpaper sized >_<

Omg, I want and need a tablet, T_T
I love those outlines. Not so thin now. <333
You painting is gorgeous! No more complaining now. :3 I love her hair the most.
The background is a bit weird but it looks like the scan so you achieved it.
Beautiful job, kairi-chan!
