Tsubaki-hime ~Winter Bloom

Tadaima! I'm back. It's been weeks ever since I finished a wallpaper. This wall is for My-Maiden's winter contest and Wings-Lovers (unexpected, because of the cranes) I badly wanted to make a Japanese theme wall with pretty kimono. I used camellia flowers to show winter since it can bloom during the harsh winters.

So... have you seen this scan?! I chopped a lot of parts to make this wallpaper. Sakura-chan is from this scan and the body from this scan. The background, the window came from xxxholic scan, the tree from ccs scan, the flowers from X/1999 and vectored the cranes from a stock in DA. I wasn't able to find kimono patterns with Tsubaki (most are spring & autumn theme) so I vectored my own pattern.

One reason why I couldn't finish this soon is because of the background. I really had to redo a lot. To be honest, I still have doubts about this bg. I was greatly inspired by Sakura-Dust's "Passionate Red...sin of the Lycoris" so I added vectors of cranes and the window (or maybe I just randomly placed it).

Comments & faves are greatly appriciated.
Have a Happy Holiday!

    Awww, isn't she cute? I love the colors and the BG looks nice, too. Though I wish shadows in her hair were more pronounced and those in her kimono more blended.

    But, lovely wall overall! XD

    i like this color scheme but i still think your vectors need more spontaneity

  9. ScarXHeart Dec 12, 2009

    OMG I love it!

    The colors are perfect for a winter wall, and as usual your vector is stunning. You do a great job of combining several scans to make one picture, it's awesome. You love using texture, which I adore, I actually have origami paper like the white pattern you used. ^_^ Very nice work.

  13. patompong Dec 13, 2009

    Nice work and Wonderfull...lol..

  14. kara Dec 13, 2009

    I'm not sure I'm a fan of the texture you used over Sakura's face. I think that one's better off remaining strictly on the wall.
    Other than that, great work =]

  15. miss-kittychan Dec 13, 2009

    such a cute wallie! The bg is fab and i love the japanese style =]
    +fav xx

  16. zaira Dec 13, 2009

    Nice! i love how you did with those scans putting it into a 1 whole wallie.
    Great job on Sakura, i thought she is a new scan having a new outfit but its not
    you merge it from the 2 scans which a really great. Your vector in her is nice love
    the patterns + the textures. The bg is nice as well though i found something
    lacking or it needs more details on the colors scheme. Overall great work on
    Sakura so +fav! ^^,

    It's really nice!loved it!:)

  23. ArtificialRaindrop Dec 15, 2009

    Let me say this: THIS is how you vector, people! <3 Rather than simply retracing a single scan, you've done what I love: taking advantaging of being able to mix different scans and merge them together to create something unique! I would have liked to see a texture on the back wall to add more depth, and the window is a bit too blurry, but overall it's very lovely. I really like that you used a subtle origami paper over the light area of Sakura's outfit. The colors work very nicely as well for being a winter-themed wallpaper.

  24. AngelKate Dec 15, 2009

    Wow...amazing job! ^^ You did wonderful work blending all the scans into one. :) That one hand holding the flower looks really small though... But I see it was like that on the original too. o.O I guess it's just a strange perspective. xD

    Amazing work, though, I could never have the patience to do all that xD
