Happy belated birthday, Kitten-chan! At least it's not as late as usual. Still a bit late though. What happened was, I had another present I was working on for Kitten, it would have been a much better gift if I had finished it, but since it's not something I'm used to and is still far from being done I decided to make this and submit the other one later, when it's finished, as just a normal gift :)

So! Since the other gift I'm making is not a dark wall, I figured I should give Kitten something dark >:D She's the master after all. This wall was made to represent the other side of people. I think everyone has at least a bit of a dark side; a side that you usually keep to yourself. And dark side doesn't necessarily mean bad, nuh-uh. I chose this scan of Rena for it...mostly because I love the scan XD But it also fit with the theme. Those who have watched Higurashi know that there's more than one side to Rena.

I haven't vectored in SO LONG. So I'm a bit rusty. I'm so glad I started again though. Without vectoring I just don't feel like myself. I enjoyed vectoring Rena, fun part I guess was the sunburn-like stuff on her shoulders and elbows, and her eyes. I vectored her whole dress but ended up cropping half of it for the wall.

Then the wall; I created everything from scratch, basically, besides the overlayed textures. On my last wall with similar lighting (Tsukiakari) I was reminded that the shadow of the window panes would conform to the body's shape, so I tried to work on that here, hope it looks better. I added the roses so it wouldn't be empty, and tried to make the text look like part of the shadow in a way.

Vampire version inspired by Kitten-chan's trademark blood ^^ I understand now. The blood was fun XD Blood brushes courtesy of Ann Frost @ Deviantart.

I hope you like it Kitten-chan :o Sorry it's only a replacement present for the one I didn't finish, but I don't want to rush that one ^_^' Your birthday's far past so wishing you a happy birthday seems odd :P But thank you for being one of my bestest friends online, you can always cheer me up, make me laugh, and inspire me to do new things with my art <33

    Yay, you finally release something. I miss your work. XD
    Of course, you vector never fails to amaze me. I love the roses. I got a thing for roses. <33
    I don`t think I really like the texture on her too much. Do you have a textureless version?
    The background looks awesome. It`s perfect... no flaws found~~
    Did you say you`re rusty? It`s not good to lie, Ai-chan. :3

  8. Kairi-Hearts Dec 02, 2008

    I miss you! Finally you're back with something wonderful!
    Love the dark scene, the shadow of the window pane look so real. Most of wall contents is dark but no any details are loss. Don't make me sad, you're rusty? Rusty no NAI! ne? Remember you're my inspirator and i'm still one of your admirer! You says you enjoy vectoring Rena, (same with my firsy name at all) opps i mean you're enjoy vectoring (Rena in Higurashi no naku koro ni), i glad to hear cause i'm know the pleasure while vectoring. Keep for your nice style of your work, it's close as the original publisher! Good job Ai-Chan! :D:D:D
