it's been a frickin long 3 months making this thing (actually, most of the time is just me being lazy -.-), and what I mean by 3 months is just making the color vector.....-.-, at this point. I dun even care how people think about it, I'm just glad i was able to finish it that's all....

If @Horseradish see this, he probably already know my story, but I'll just briefly retell it... so the story goes right after I finished my last "god only knows wall", I was thinking of challenging myself with making a hard vector and decide to do a Takeshi Ohbata's work (http://www.animepaper.net/art/183904/cover-bakuman-volume-08) . long story short, I never submit a vector before so I didn't know that the minimum res for a vector is so high......(you get the rest of it right? BTW I'm sorry if it's confusing...it's a vexel not a vector). since I'm already halfway done, I want to submit it SOMEHOW and decide to SOMEHOW make a wall out of it....

given that I don't have any time (since I'm out of the country tomorrow) nor skill, I can only came up with this simplistic BG. the idea is a reverse manga (confused? don't worry me too -.-). the table is just some texture, I vectored the paper, hand, stuff, and characters from scans except for 3 (4 actually) characters which is the courtesy of Tidus 902000 from DA, this is the pic (http://tidus-902000.deviantart.com/art/BakuMan-104872215) . I want to ask his permission or say thank you but he's banned from there -.-. I know I can probably vector them myself from this scan (http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/381082) but if you look at it, his vector is actually a lot more complex and better than the scan, since I would have probably make it simpler. so if by any chance he saw this wall here I want to say thank you since it saves me a lot of time to vector them, and if you don't like me using your pic than please say it and I will delete this wall IMMEDIATELY (or if this violate any AP rule then just delete it)

If you're thinking vectoring the cover is hard, that's an understatement...I'll describe the scan as a "ballet of violently clashing color", you should try to see how many color you can find inside a 100x100 px square, I just wan to say that I really REALLY respect Takeshi Ohbata as an artist...

BTW don't mind the cheesy title and text quote..I'm probably just feeling sentimental right now for finishing this after so long (tomorrow I'll probably gonna laugh at it), I put the long quote there since I feel that I need to put something to make the wall look full, but I also put the no-quote version in case anyone don't like it.

Again, sry if the BG is too simple for you, and seeing this you probably notice that I suck at shadowing (actually, I suck generally at drawing (not vectoring)) sry for that too, But I actually like it since I've always wanted to do simple looking black and white wall, although it's not really black and white

well, enjoy......
