Artist Comment

hi everybody :D

i've tried myself on a new wallpaper.
this time i took this scan -
Momohime

(thanks a lot to Wslasher for sharing!) - made a little outtake and vectorized it completely.

i worked a lot with colour-transitions of different hardness/softness in order to bring out the different materials, which are shown in this little outtake (metal, cloth, wood, ...).
of course i changed some things - as you will see - for example her skin: i didn't like her way too red cheeks, this always made her look like she was either 5years old (which may be possible, i honestly don't know the game), or attending clown-school or going out for work under a lantern xD i prefered some little healthy shine on her skin.
i changed a lot about the hair, too. with this very strong light-reflexes and these dark shadows it somehow was a bit too much in the whole picture and totally flooded everything else.
i stayed with the concept of clearcut lines, i somehow like it :D and it made a good contrast to the colour-transitions as well.

what's left to say?
i worked on it about two weeks every evening when there was nothing better to do, i used good old photoshop 7.0, and all in all i needed almost 600 layers (i really ask myself how people do this with 70 or something, somehow i'm way too unorganized, i guess xD)

sooooooo: i'm grateful for any kind of comment, ideas of improvement, etc. - and, of course, i'm really happy if somebody might like it :D
thanks a lot for reading and have a really nice day xD

    Oh my gosh this is amazing. I love this. I love how you changed her hair and skin your version is so much better. And I like how you did her blush to, its like from a manga or anime scene. I also love how you did her eyes. Your just so amazing and talented at vectors and walls *is now addicted* XD.

    I think you've done a really nice job with the vector :) You probably already know yourself, but you left out on a few details with the flowers in her hair (centre gradient), but that's not a big deal - though it sort of clashes since what she's holding is 3D, whilst the flowers in her hair look 2D.

    I think what you could change in the future is to give the scan your own background. I thought the green bit was a bit arbitrary (didn't know what it was until I saw the scan in full), but I felt that you could have done something with the background. Even though she's in a lying position, after you vector her and crop her out, she does look like she's standing up. When I first saw this I thought this was an abstract wall because I thought you added the flowers on the side - then I realised it was part of her clothes lol.

    I'm not saying this is a bad thing by the way, I'm just trying to give you some ideas about how you can approach a wallpaper next time - you don't always have to keep it the same, because after all, this is a wallpaper, not a vector (if it was a vector, it'd be 100% or close to 100% the same, and the whole image would be vectorised) - so you have a lot of freedom to do something creative. I think you're starting to realise that since you've tinkered with the colours - but next time, don't be afraid to rotate the scan, give it a different background, or change things completely if you think it looks better.

    I think that this is a high quality wallpaper nonetheless and you've definitely tried to work your own interpretation into this.

    Good work! Can't wait to see your next submission :)

    I agree with alot of what Misa said, I was under the impression she was standing...
    I couldn't figure the floor out until I looked at the original scan.
    My biggest critic would be on the shading, theres just simply not enough
    of it on her or the floor. There's barely any on her face and I think with the
    added shadows it really would've gave her more life. She's also missing alot of highlights,
    especially across her hair like the original scan has it.
    The kimono lacks alot of definition along with the flowers, alot of depth that could've
    been added. I know you followed the original but next time you should work on enchancing whatever it is you see.
    Nice job, hoping to see more~
