This was a labor of love. I fell in love with the scan of Kenshin by [ap]shaza[/ap], and just had to do something with it. My life as of late has been hectic, and I find the process of vectoring images soothing. It took about 40 layers and an infinite amount of shapes in Illustrator CS2, but I completed him in about 4 days work, working about 5 hours a day on it. When I finished, I was so proud of the work, I decided I had to make a wall of it, rather than just keep it to myself. So, the process became more lengthy!

Now, I've never been good at backgrounds, so that took a while to come up with something. I took a page from the Rurouni Kenshin manga artwork, which seemed to feature a lot of stylistic elements from japanese cutting paper. I searched for patterns, but eventually settled for making a conglomerate of something I thought looked good. I vectored the flowers in the edges, though I was smart enough to reuse shapes for that. From there I gave it the scroll like look, and decided that was still not enough.

I searched the Rurouni Kenshin scan section until I came across [ap]turkman[/ap]'s scan. I didn't want to use all of it, and simply vectored the large sakura branches in the corner. This was the hardest part of the whole project.=( ) It took forever figuring out the shading for the branches, but I think the way they ended up suits the rest of the image. Once those were added to the wall, I added texture and shadows to get the full final image. I hope everyone enjoys!
