Thanks to bouinbouin for this nice scan of Yuko!

I thought she's really elegant in this picture, I love her "peacock dress", so I vectored her. It was really long because of all details and I had to think about colors that I chose to make something colorfull (like peacock) but harmonious too.
For the BG, I drew and vectored some elegant curtains in blue tones, drew japanese window, shadow of landscape (temples on montains), painted a sky, moon and clouds, vectored leaves of a tree to increase the depth.
I finally emphasized the atmosphere in playing with light, contrast, saturation and colors.
I hope you'll like!

    No Lighting..... ;_________;

    agree with alenas. this could be a lot beautiful if you add some light and color richness.
    you can add some moon radiance for glow shades. I envy the vectoring but everything is just too dark.

    Actually I must say the colors are very vibrant in here. I wish that you'd used a richer red color at those maroon-ish colored beads. I think adding some shine would also be nice as if they are gem stones sparkling because the way it is now looked dull.

    As what alenas pointed out, there is no lighting. I can see a very bright moon behind, so there should be some backlit at yuuko.(That is somewhat hard to pull for me.). I think if you added lighting in there it would be really nice already.

    In terms of composition, this is one of your better walls, the ideas you had for the background are good. I have to agree with the others about the lighting, with such a bright moon lighting up those clouds, there should be some glow on Yuuko. I also noticed that a lot of the lines are jagged, especially on the strands of beads. That really takes away from the quality of the wall. You have a lot of vectoring skill, and you're fast as heck, but you leave a lot of details out that could really make the wall shine.

    I can clearly see how hard you've worked on this and the outcome is a sheer success. The colors used truly captures the protagonist characteristics, this is exactly who she is, a woman at leisure in the classiest style. I like the fact that despite being the closest thing to a conventional artwork/wallpaper, each figurative object is an obvious state-mental line that complements the protagonist.

    Love how graceful you made her look in your revision. Wonderful work!
