Happy belated birthday, Lory! *hugs* I know I sent you a gift on your birthday, but I was also planning something more substantial for you :D Hope you like it, I thought of Toradora from those ooold icon requests.
Widescreen version recommended, as usual, normal and HD cut from the wall.

Edit: thank you very much for the elite <33

I really wanted to vector this when I saw the scan again while looking for gift materials; for some reason, close-up walls and vectors go much easier than full body ones :\ However, close-ups mean that I'm bound to get caught up in doing hair, which happened here as well. Surprisingly, the hair was done in day 1, then day 2 was for the skin and clothes, and finally day 3 (today) for the background and corrections. I left some edges intentionally "messy" to emphasize that effect ^^

I went apeshit with the Freeform Pen Tool 8d OMAI <3 I think I've found a new tool to abuse. And the background originally consisted of a pattern, but I scrapped that idea and went with this, since I've always wanted to try this style. And by the way, all the raster layers in this wall are the subtle blush, the light, the bokeh and a color correction layer - everything is vectored, no painting or textures used.

Oh, and I also left out that creature, it bugged me for some reason. Plus, it totally cramps her style, so it had to go. However, that left me with reconstruction work, which took a long time because I got cocky and tried to do it "on the spot", without drawing myself a reference D: I managed to fix it in the end, though.

    asdfghjk OMG I love this vector. So so much. Has to be one of your best EVER. I love the soft, ethereal lighting and the lineless-ness with the soft vexel shading just looks so harmoniously pretty and sweet. It's just too lovely, both the softness and the details with the eyes and the hair which curls so that makes one want to touch it *__* (I don't care if I sound like a creeper now). The very light, warm bokeh effect works with the heavenly lighting, and everything is so soft and dreamy yet bright and she's gorgeously cute.. Darn you, Pande, you're making me fan over a GIRL. XD So faving this. *__*
