Artist Comment

I always tend to write a lot in these things when I submit. I hope that's alright. In any case, I found the main scan and fell in love with it, despite the fact I really didn't like the color quality of it, and it had that awful tear though (unavoidable when art spans over the spine I suppose.) I spent a while extracting and cleaning it up with the intention of vectoring it eventually. After a lot of debate I ended up keeping it as it was, because it would have lost so much character in the translation from ink/watercolor work to vector.

From there I created a background that went better with the newly adjusted/replaced and saturated colors. For a long time I didn't know what I was going to do with the background, I tried a few things such as shadowing window panes in but it never really worked. As a last step before I gave up on finishing it, I submitted this to SZ, and got a lot of great feedback from other members. I especially want to thank [ap]PinkPrincessLacus[/ap] and [ap]nat[/ap] for their advice among the other good advice given there.

I'm still not so great with backgrounds, but I think I'm slowly making an improvement towards where I'd like to be. If anything, working on this as fueled my desire to continue my own water color and fine art pursuits. It's a good thing too because I have a couple of triptychs due in December for my art class. Hahaha.

In closing, please enjoy.

Dedication
I want, in some strange way, dedicate this to my father who passed away on October 3rd 2009. He'd always encouraged me in my artistic pursuits since childhood, and helped me through my first years of college. Without him I would not be striving to be a teacher in the art world. I love him, and I miss him, and I hope he knows I think about him every day.

    I love how you managed to keep the orginal scan, extracted it then made a great background for it! *A*

    I'm so glad you kept the original ink/watercolor work. All the colors work really well together as does your background. You did a really nice job of maintaining the ink/watercolor feel in your background. I like the color pallet too. Can't really think of anything to recommend. The roses in the upper left corner are a little hard to make out, but if I could see them better that might distract from the characters. Eh, it's a little thing. I like it!
    I keep finding walls I like of this series. Darn...gonna have to go watch it. :D
