Artist Comment

I fell in love with the original scan (see the link below) at the first sight for two reasons. First, it was Yin :P. Second, There was something in her demeanour that kind of called me; from that moment, I knew that someday, somehow, I would do something with this amazing picture.

As I was working on this vector, I realized why : it is a picture that, in my opinion, perfectly represents Yin as a character. She's sitting there, longing for something that she will never receive ... but she is not depressed. Her face seems emotionless, but if you focus on other details, you can feel her, yearning, hoping, grieving for the knowledge of things that will never come true... but still, hopeful and trying to live her life, and clinging to every little scrap of hope she can find.

I hope that you enjoy it. As usual, comments, criticisms, downloads and favourites are very appreciated. The love you give is my fuel, and your constructive criticisms are precious, since they allow me to improve myself.

On a personal note, it will probably be my last vector for a while, since I go back to school next week (and that means that I'll be pretty busy). However, rest assured that I'll work on some vectors in spite of my schedule :P

NOTE : DO NOT upload elsewhere and claim it as your own work. Please credit if used, and send me a link to your work (either in my guestbook or by MP); I would love to see what you did!

    Decided to take a look at some of your other vectors; definitely was worth it :). And yes, Yin is great! She looks melancholy which is the type of atmosphere I really like in anime/manga picture/photos. Both this and your Nagisa one are really awesome, looking forward to more of your great work when you have the time :D

You said you really enjoyed working on the eyes, and I think you really did them well as that melancholy feeling I mentioned really comes out from their eyes.

    Looking forward to more of your great work (and those cool progress pics) when you have the time :D
