OOOOOOOOH MY........ o.O e-e-l-l-ite g-g-aller-ry? TwT thanks so much x'D *pours tears of joy*

Finally I finished it ! \(TwT)/ I thought I would never finish it, I always saw mistakes in it… :( and school was harsh lately (so I didn’t have much time to do this… sorry it’s the best I can do with such conditions)
First, I have to say it’s my entry for make-your-best’s EXCHANGE SCANS CONTEST

PLEASE FULL VIEW (it should look a bit better ^^')

Now onto the conception… the rules said that we had to use scans that other members had chosen. Among the three scans I received, I chose this one :)

Spoiler (show)

(the other two were totally impossible for me to handle *cough, cough*)


FIRST STEP : Character
I vexelled the girl at the left bottom of the scan (I know, a vector should've looked better but... forgive my laziness..)

Spoiler (show)

but I must admit that my laziness made the girl look odd since I vexelled her... ^__^"


SECOND STEP : Background
okay, here, to be honest, I had ZERO ideas (T.T) so I just decided to follow the idea of the original background of the scan xD after doing the sky and the odd sea, inspiration came! :D it looked like a traditional Japanese painting so I changed the sea with the well-know “Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Hokusai x) (well, at least I tried) so, I picked some shots on Google images and started vexelling the waves. Then, I was done (^///^) but then, it looked kinda too plain :/ so I tried using patterns for the first time of my life! =^_^= it looked better :3

Patterns : (thanks to Raffa for promoting the site in the past contest ;D)
then, I added a grungy texture x3 but it looked a bit… off.. x_x anyway, I left it as it was :p


THIRD STEP : Revision
searching for little mistakes (but there were too many of them so I gave up... =.=).. then, I adjusted the colors, brightness… and basta~ finished (/^.^)/


FOURTH STEP : Thinking of a title
... so.. ^^' I suck at finding titles guys.. so I put a random one! O___O'


Soft. PS CS5 Extended.
Time many weeks ^_^’
PSD size 160 Mb.
Layers ^^’ it’s better not to count them :p
Alternative versions : without the leaves and patternless :) and also, widescreen versions xD


well, that’s pretty much it ! :D hope you guys will like it :3 (cuz I don’t, it didn’t turn out like I wanted to T.T but at least it does reflect smthg so I posted it.. I can’t do better :/)

naturally, comments and criticism are most welcome ♥

Spoiler (show)

urgh… why do I feel like it’s so awful… T.T

    Love the colors and all those pretty textures and patterns you used around the background; they're interesting and stylish without being too aggressive or overwhelming. The vector is also very stylish and pretty. I just think the leaves look a bit out of place in such a scene but they're so nicely made it doesn't really matter that much, lol. Good job and good luck in the contest! xD

    one of your best work 8d
    love the japanese vibes and dem waves are awesome >D
    the way you use the pattern is also good, and like what alenas have said, it's not overwhelming
    great job and good luck!

    The art seems like samurai champloo and katanagatri mixed up(not a bad thing) and has a hawaii feeling to it, nice, cute and cool.
