Best wishes~

So, with my life being pretty hetic right now I didn't know if I would have enough time to make something for Vitaa-chan....I knew I wanted to make an original for her, since I showed her some of my art and she really loved it.
And man...this may seem pretty simple and easy to do..but it was not! I'm not used to work with text and such x_x

Did a lot of sketches, but ended up choosing this one, and later made a decent drawing from it.
I first started playing around in photoshop, checking if the composition would work or not. Started vectoring just to check on what kind of colors I'd use and when I noticed, I was enjoying the outcome.
I first intended to outline the whole thing and just use gradients when coloring it. I ended up liking the result, with no lines. Made the mask more simple than it was in the drawing for several reasons :P
Then I proceeded to add the text. That was the hard part! I suck at using it plus what kind of things would be written?
I started thinking of what to write and later added them. So don't pay attention to what's written; it's all random stuff.
I also forced myself to not use many colors. Red was on my mind since the very beginning.

The message of the work is by no means related to Vitaa lol
I'm sure you all know I love mask simbology, if you recall my Original in Summer last year.
And the girl had to have twin tails, since I love those~

I admit doing this one work was difficult at first, coming up with the idea and composition but after that it was all very fun and interesting.
It reminded me of when I first started walling. I only extracted the scans and used brushes and more brushes and made abstract backgrounds.
Oh that's right! The only thing I didn't make was the pattern.

I'm sure my gift will be the crappiest one of all the awesome ones you'll get :nya:
Anyways, hope you enjoy it, Vitaa! ....and sorry it's not a bishie! :x

    I cannot draw to save my life. Unless it`s stick figures... but then again, my stick figures suck.
    Love the simplicity of the wall. And the mask symbolism is pretty clever too.
