Apparently, I haven't submitted a vector since Feb 13, 2010. I have several sitting around my pc waiting to be finished, but I hadn't realized it has been over a year since I posted one on MT o_o I feel a little out-of-sync now and I'm trying to get back in to the swing of vectoring. That being said, I really had a lot of fun with this one, which is probably why it reached completion... And because Snicker and I are re-obsessing over Shakugan no Shana since season 3 is supposed to air in October. *twitches* Moar...I needs MOAR!

Inspiration: "Immortality of Time" from The 3rd Birthday soundtrack.

...Moving along. Due to the severe lack of Hecate wallpapers (3 really, and one's not actually Hecate, it just looks like her), I decided to vector-paint this scan of her since it hasn't been used yet at MT. I vectored her base colors/outlines and painted in deeper shadows and lighter highlights; I created all of the gears in Illustrator, then painted & textured them in Photoshop. I went with a larger, more open space in the gear's center to make it look almost like a portal, showing the sky in the background. I cleaned up the scan of the clouds and played with it's colors so that it looked more ethereal. I tried to give the entire piece a sort of faint glowing, fiery look to play off of the Shana Season 2 opening "Joint", and lastly I decided to do something different with my signature rather than run it across the bottom of the page again.

    um.. i got this awkward feeling about the big gear at the center. dunno but maybe because the thickness is too small? :3. great wall regardless.

    I love the colors, so pretty, soothing and blue! And I like the symmetry between the normal clock and the zodiac circle, too. The contrast between the gritty gears of time and the clear blue sky in the background is pretty neat and you did a nice job on vectoring and painting everything. Great work! :3

    Oh wow, love the background, you've really added a ton of detail to those gears. They all have small subtle differences in textures and designs, making it look a lot more natural as a background. Hecate fits in really well too, her colored outlines really help her blend beautifully on the background :)

    LOVE. To be honest, when you first told me you were making a Hecaye wallpaper, I was a little disappointed you weren't making another one of Shana. But after seeing what you came up with, I'm very glad you went with Hecate. The colors, textures, composition- I like it all. And while I had mentioned making the gears look kind of grungy and worn, I'm also glad you didn't because how they are now fits the "Immortality of Time" idea. I think this might be one of my favorites of your walls. Great job!

    Awesome work, Raindrop!

    This looks really nice, I love it. Especially the colours. It looks very smooth. There is just one thing that bothers me and that is the depth of the wheels. Of course, it's a straight-front view which enables you to make things completely flat but when it gets a bit to the right or left, the depth (thickness) of using 3 dimensions has to be added. If you don't, everything will be flat. It looks a bit odd to me on that part. Nevertheless, this is one heck of a beautiful wallpaper.

    Now this is really wonderful. I like the colors scheme a lot, I just love the idea for the background, it looks somehow like she's trapped in a dreamworld. Also I like how you used the textures, I think they really fit.
