Uhm, hello there! Long time no see...well, it's been a long time for me since I saw this 'submit' button, anyway... >__>

Yes, University is eating me alive so while I'm still barely alive, I decided I should use that valuable time to make a wall. This time, the choice fell on a random scan in a random scan gallery. No, I'm not kidding... XD

Sooo, as usual, vectored the lines, painted the rest. Making that hair almost took away this little life I've got left in me, as well as deciding what to make for a background. First, there was the wall with curtains scene at night...then a tower scene at night (thanks Nysha for the suggestion! XD), then the scan extension until in the end, I got back to the original idea and made the window with curtains and all that jazz. I wanted to keep the weird looking thingy behind him but then it looked too crowded so I decided to remove it (and there went a few hours of vectoring the lines for the damn thing -__-) and add some petals instead. Yes, I'm that original, haha. Added some red glow around the guy, some soft textures and that was it.

Dedicated to Kitten and Angel-Zakuro. Happy (upcoming and belated) B-day girls! < 3

Original scan: HERE.
Time: ...I don't want to talk about that...

Mrawr, too tired and exhausted to make a standard version. Crop any way you like, folks. Hope you like, and as always, comments/faves/constructive criticism are welcome!

Peace out!

    Aww, this is beautiful. I am so in love with the redness
    in his cup...I thought blood but I dunno, whatever it is it's <3

    Great job on the curtains, they're so soft and
    delicate...not to mention no press or crease anywhere! :o

    Awesome bg and painting job, the guy is weird
    looking indeed but thats not your fault XD

    Thank you so much for the gift <33

    Wow, turned out different from what I expected! It looks great! Though is he hanging on the ledge from outside? XD

    Senpai sugoi! Super love the wine glass. Love the hair and clothes too. definitely a favorite.

  6. melymay Nov 15, 2009

    This looks great :) Vectoring looks amazing too. Although, I would have preferred a harsher texture on the bricks . . Or maybe outlines that aren't black (the window sill & the curtains). Everything looks a bit too clean compared to you character. But in general, it looks good.

  7. Mallory Nov 15, 2009

    ....Wow. That is absolutely beautiful; the hair looks fantastic! Really great job. I love the colors of the sky outside of the window as well. Thanks so much for making this!

    This is so awsome, it really kicks a$$ xD
    My fave part is the blood/wine whatever it is. Looks so real and amazingly fantastic *o*
    His eyes are cool as well and the curtains too ^^ I think that his hair and shirt are to blured compared to the rest but it's still nice <3 The hair must have taken forever >__>
    Nyaa, I really want that cup >D

    Before I forgot, it's featured at CoK ^^

  18. GeneDNC Nov 15, 2009

    Wow, this is so cool. I love the cup and blood, and his shirt. I agree with Nysha that it looks a bit like he's handing into the room (let's hope it's not the tower then :P)

  19. Kemxiz Nov 15, 2009

    This is amazing. Love the blood :)

  20. Yamibou-Eve Nov 15, 2009

    omg beautiful!
    One day you have to show me how you make your walls! XD
    The glass is very detailed and the vine (I think it's wine, blood?) looks awesome! It's glittering! <333
    His shirt looks so silky and like it was painted in sai, ahh I love it!
    And the hair also very detailed, you can almost see the life you put in it!
    But the glass omg how did you find the nerves/life to vector & paint the glass, it looks so realistic!
    And great choice of bg!
    And the eyes *zooms in* they are magnificent as always!

  21. Melisandre Nov 15, 2009

    Interesting wallie, well painted and with a mistycal and misterious atmosphere. I love the way you make the "blood" from the vase and the bg is really cool :D

  22. vitaamin Nov 15, 2009

    i would have preferred to have the background outlineless--since your vector is. the window sill is the main part of this wall that detracts from its quality--its shaded to be too round. the rose petals also feel strange--they are much too long and look too round as well. and i agree with nysha's question although i didnt notice at first :D

    i'm not the hugest fan of the color scheme, but i can't well express why i'm not. I do think though that you should have preserved some of that dull colored theme that was in the original scan, as opposed to mixing the whites and beiges with more jewel-tones.

    that all being said, i think the painting is quite good on the vector and the wine is cool

  23. ShroomX Nov 16, 2009

    Omg...I fell in love with it :D
    awsome wall..You did a great job..you turned the scan into a masterpiece!

  24. eindgul Nov 17, 2009

    wow... thats a cool effect with the whine and the blood (or they are both blood). amazing wall
