OH MY GOD!
That was my reaction when I first saw this! I'm dying! It's amazing!
Unfortunately I don't have a lotta time right now but as soon as I do I'm gonna come back and edit my comment ^^
And of course, thank you so much for the gift! <33
Okay I'm back now! I was just looking at it again and all I can say is brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! So so so amazing, that I can't even think of anything meaningful to say XD
Akio and Sanae are perfect; love the changes you did to Sanae and how you still left them displaying their bread :P
Sunohara makes the perfect Santa lol ^^
RYOU: My darling kawaii girl <33 You made her wear red! I love you. I love red. Ha ha XD And I love how you flared her hair out at the ends like she styled it; so cute ^^
I think Nagisa looks lovely, despite how you view her ^^ An elegant long black dress (ADORE the pattern on that one) and all those extra little details...and the dango~
It's true Kyou doesn't look that different with wavy hair :o But it's nice. And I adore how you designed her outfit. Cute dress, long gloves, thigh high tights (with wow detail) and I think I love the gradient on the dress the most! The earrings also catch my eye.
Tomoya! Yeah, he looks the same as usual, but I can't see him any other way :P
Kotomi's hair! Those curls are genius. I swear I could have never pulled off something like this...and you chose the perfect colour for her dress I think :)
Fuuko looks so sweet! Kawaii clothes suit her best ^^
And your Tomoyo...omochikaeriiii! Ha ha. She looks so darn cute. I'm ready to demand a vector of just her looking like that! (But I won't :P) The twin tails with the outfit and the pose...I love it. I can't get over it.
Wow. All this and I haven't even gotten to the background?
Great job with the curtains. I never would have thought to add a floral pattern like that but it's surprisingly fitting :o And the fireworks and stars are beautiful.
Overall I'd say you've outdone yourself. You should be nothing but 100% proud of this one. And I know I wrote a lot but you so deserve it XD
Thank you so much for the dedication and have a very happy holiday! <3

BIG big description ahead!Sorry about that!
Dedicated to:Erikamirou, Kitten, ASH-Hikari, Xianghua, LilLaoRyo704, Omone, EevaLeena, YoruAngel866, minamiyukihimenonaka, Abul, Straawbeerryy, Vitaamin, Sinever, Moonfangs90, Christabel92, CosmoStar, rika23 and also to Tsuki-Akari since her b-day's coming up ^_^
Merry Christmas to all! Hope you spend a really nice day alongside your family/friends/most important people, eat a lot, get nice presents, etc...I'm really not good at these kind of messages though... ^_^'
anhfgaj! I FINISHED IT! My computer and I almost died doing this. It felt like forever, though it was extremely fun to do. I love drawings clothes and this project gave me that chance :3
Despite not liking my works lately, I still went ahead and did my best to finish this. Some lines ended up being rushed though since I was afraid of not finishing on time...
I did a quick sketch of everyone's outfits and stupid background. Yes, never mind the ugliness of that sketch, I've only started using my tablet recently.
About the presents they're holding...That was the main idea of this whole Project. When I first thought of using this scan for Christmas, I essencially thought of changing from bread to presents. The clothes and hairstyles came a few minutes later.
Akio-san & Sanae-san: I couldn't leave Sanae-san's bread out! She's so proud of it, after all. Made Akio hold a bouquet of roses, since it was perfect for this setting. His outfit isn't that creative, it's pretty cliche, but I really couldn't see him wearing another thing. Too tired to make a proper pinstripe, so I used patterns.
Sanae-san...since she is into theatre as well, I thought a weird dress like this would actually be fun. Let her hair lose since she's much prettier that way.
Sunohara: Oh good ol' Sunohara :nya: He looks so happy that a smile appeared on my face while vectoring him. There had to be a Santa! And who's better than him?
Ryou:I loved how her hair turned out. Added a simple red dress with a ribbon and done. Her present is like one of those chocolate boxes. A round one like the melon pan she was holding was boring. A heart shaped box is much more romantic. I personally think she turned out really cute.
Nagisa: Nagisa is the one I like the less in this Project. I tried to make her hair straight, but she doesn't look that different. Added a rose and ribbon on her hair and still didn't look that special. I could see her wearing such an elegant dress like that, but it somehow wasn't suiting her. Well, earring and necklaces did add more variety but I'm still not that fond of how she turned out. Of course she had to be holding Dango~
Kyou:Dear Kyou had to have wavy hair. I always wanted to see how she looked like that and honestly, it's not that different ^_^' A simple dress with some frills and gloves, done. I also added laces in her stocking, even though it's not that visible since it was resized to only 25% of original size. She was the hardest, I had no idea how to color wavy hair, and not sure I like green on her.
Tomoya: Oh look! Tomoya's there too. Wow, he's like...hiding! XD I didn't think it was worth changing his hair or outfit since he isn't that visible.
Kotomi: Finally, I made her hair loose too. She looks so different. I also made curls :nya: A simple, long dress with laces and a bracelet. There really isn't much to say about her design. She's not that visible either. And appologies to Straawberryy since she wanted to see Kotomi with her teddy bear, but I suck at drawing animals + time didn't allow me -_-
Fuuko:Her star...I mean, starfish! had to be there as well. Since she has that loli body of hers, I didn't want to make something lady-like. I made something more of cute instead. I made braids for her but they didn't turn out well... ^_^'
Tomoyo:...was my victim. Twintails + Corset. I love corsets and all those baroque clothes but I couldn't really make something like that here, Sanae-san was enough (and she has excuse). So I added a kind of different skirt to go along the corset. That skirt was difficult to color too. I think she looks really different from everyone, but somehow, she doesn't look out of place.
It's already a really big description...I don't think there's much more to say.
Hope everyone loves it! And C&C is extremely welcome, as I spent a lot of effort on this!
Tell me if you see any mistakes! >.<

Wow, this has to be the best of all your works so far.
I'm drowning in all the creativity of the outfits
and styles of hair, it's such a twist on things.
I gotta say the bg does no justice to how great
the vector is, all the work and effort is really shown.
Though I love the curtains <3
Thank you so much for the gift Kairi,
I will keep it in my folder and stare at it for some time XD
It's very beautiful and you should be proud of it.

You've got a set of patience to vector all these characters but in the end it was all worth it because they look amazing. I like them all and thus refuse to choose a favorite. Lovely work and beautiful wallpaper, thanks for sharing it!
Yaolin Dec 23, 2008
I saw this wallpaper in AP but I decided to leave a comment here. I've to congratulate you on making such lovely transformation: I saw the scan and what you did here is simply amazing! The vectoring, the background, the colours... are great. It must have taken you a lot of time to make this wall!
Very original wallie!
sasaki Dec 23, 2008
