Sakura-Dust helped me so much with this, and without her I would have canned it half way through.

So to the wall it self.
When I saw this scan I was just like *__* because of the potential.
I actually watched alice in wonderland again for some inspiration.
Originally I was going to do a paint-y vector, but ory-chan suggested that I do messy vector shapes.
I tried to make them messy ;____; but I fail.
Please don't say anything mean about my rose bush (I may stab you)
It was the most horrid thing making and why I never want to look at this again.
I also think my sense of lighting and shading is some-what naive, hopefully I'll improve with time ^^;

Layers - Over 800 (this was due to my stupidity not necessity)
Favourite Part - The bucket 8d I heart bucket
Hated Part - Every part of the rose bush *Stabs...*

Ps. The curvey green things in the bg are not hills, its a hedge :/
Just in case XD


Edit: OMFG this got highlighted! THANKYOU!

Gorgeous vectoring and great attention to detail, everything in this wallpaper - from the rosebush to the bucket of paint to Yuuko's dress - are all carefully created. Awesome work Kritty!!

    Haha, I thought my eyes were deceiving me when I saw this XD
    You made it with the rose bush. It looks really great, you could've added a bit more roses, but it's fabulous nonetheless.
    Hehe *rubs head* A hedge, of course XD
    You made it extremely well with the multiple shadow vectoring, I'm proud of you *3*

    The blood is perfectly done and I love the scene,
    great vectoring and lighting. <3

    Looks neat and vexelish!
    Awesome work there! XD

    The rosebush looks fine, I love the details on it (like how you can see all the leaves >__< ). Awesome vectoring style, I love how you shaded Yuuko's dress.

    Though I wonder what she's looking at, she's looking at behind her chair instead of at the viewer XD

  5. Yamibou-Eve Sep 11, 2009

    I <3 it!
    This is really awesome! Love the half painted, dripping roses and the rose bush, great bush!
    My favorite part is the shading! *__* It's perfect and very artistic

    You are EXTREMELY TALENTED! I love your wallie! It's very original, neat and sophisticated. This is the kind of work I'd like to be able to do. Great work Kritty!

  7. zaira Sep 12, 2009

    O_O awesome vector! i love the shadings and tonings of your vector! XD
    I do love the way you vector the red paint bucket + the rose bush tree :D
    though i found the bg simple but great details ;)
    gg and + fav! XD

  8. chanelqueen17 Sep 12, 2009

    Absolutely brilliant. I love all the details ^^^it's great that you thought of the association of the Queen of Hearts and her desire that all the roses be dyed red!
    Oh, and the technique is outstanding of course ;)
    awesome job Kitty *thumbs up*

  9. trofikabinet Sep 12, 2009

  12. Matsukaze Sep 13, 2009

    What can I say... this wall is PERFECT!

  13. FallenAngelZoicyte Sep 13, 2009

    i love this. now i am going to have the "painting the roses red" some from Alice in Wonderland stuck in my head.

  14. sailorchiron Sep 13, 2009

    Really great vector, kritty! All the different layers of color look fantastic. Great work!

  15. M2Vz Sep 13, 2009

    <3 you're awesome ^_^

    your works are usually cute,but this one is somehow different~
    I love the details in Yuuko, and the shadings are lovely <3

  16. TamataruKo Sep 13, 2009

    I absolutely love the concept! Only when I downloaded I saw the half painted roses and realized the alice in wonderland theme... I think it's just brilliant!
    As for the execution, you managed to pull through the multi-layered vectoring greatly, especially considering the reconstruction I suppose you made to Yuuko's sleeve, considering the original scan.
    All in all, it's really great! xD

  17. j-valium Sep 13, 2009

    just beautiful, the vector is very well done and loved your idea, is really original *-*

  18. SamiKami Sep 14, 2009

    Wow, another awesome piece! Your work is really beautiful , well-though out and unique. I love your topics as well - you use a lot of caracters I like. I'm a huge fan of Yuuko... this is really great!

  19. flyindreams Sep 14, 2009

    I seriously love the Alice in Wonderland "painting the roses red" concept, and the Queen of Hearts really fits Yuuko well now that I think about it xD Despite what you said about the execution, this is really wonderfully done - especially after looking at the original scan and how much you added in. I'm seriously impressed by the work that must've gone into that BG. This looks like a work of love to me - awesomeness FTW <3

  20. Pink78 Sep 14, 2009

    Wow! I love it the way it is^-^

  21. silverfaerie Sep 15, 2009

    OMG OMG OMG i love this so much, it is instantly my wallpaper for my PC now :D. i love xxxHolic so much then add the Alice in wonderland to it and its instant love! <3 <3

  22. vitaamin Sep 16, 2009

    rawr sorry it took so long for me to come and highlight this at vector wallers >3
    i quiet enjoy the vector but i'm not really that hot about some details on the face and the bg--probably just because its not as clamp-esque and lacks some solidarity with that stellar vector you've got

  23. may1590 Sep 18, 2009

    I love it!

  24. Omone Sep 18, 2009

    This is way better than I imagined. Just totaly awesome.. And you got a highlight*-* well you totall deserve it :D

    the background is great and the roses didn't kill you at all XD you're still alive.. well now I know i will definetly never vector this scan..

    I am glad you used this messed up vectoring style and not the painting one. I definitely would prefer this version =D
