Back with another submission! Yey for me nyaaa :3 and this time, I'm showing some indy art love since it's (vector)wallies for the last three submissions. Besides, the indy art gallery has been looking a bit quiet too. Let's show more indy art love <3 hehe

Duration: Approx. 3 weeks. Started working on this one 2 weeks ago. I'm really (SUPER) busy with school so I just tried working on it little by little everyday. In the process, I also got a bit distracted by other scans/pics (worked on 2 others too but lost interest). It seems I just love this one too much :P
Musical motivation/s: Zero Gravity by David Archuleta, One Love (Spring Waltz OST), Don't Cry by Bom of 2NE1, and Life by YUI. Basically, these are the songs that I listen to while working on this one (and studying and reading and doing my papers too)
Layers: roughly 140 layers...hehe this time I manage to keep track of the layers (somehow :P)
- vectored from THIS SCAN. Seriously, Hiro x Kisa is just too cute! They're my fav couple from the series (Kyo x Tohru is second). For a little personal touch, I made Kisa's hair blonder (LOL what a word!)...used a brighter shade of yellow. I also changed Hiro's clothes' color to silver-white-ish. I really wanted to give him that 白马王子image. By the way, 白马王子means 'knight in shining amor'...translated according to each character, it would be something like 'prince on a white horse' hence the color for Hiro's clothes :) I tried fixing Kisa's hair (I really give it my best) too since the one in the scan really bothers me. I did my best with the blush too...since I really wanted to capture that cute shyness they have :3
- Forgot where I found the plaid texture used for Hiro's clothes, but here's THE LINK. I just uploaded it on Photobucket. I didn't use the texture as is, changed the colors of it as well.

Please credit if used, and do not rip or submit elsewhere.

    it's just so adorable ! although the eyes are slightly larger than normal though :/ I do like the clothing, holding hands and cute blush though :) her little yellow dress seems to be my focus point each and every time I glance at it to comment more on it :) I like the ruffles too, background is a soothing design to go with the piece. well done
