Edit: the thumbnail shows a purely white background, but full-viewing shows a colored one. Don't worry, it takes a bit to update.

Soo this is an older vector. It's actually been finished for quite a few months, but I left it alone because I couldn't figure out a way to redo the shading on the dress. I even bugged poor Val about it and she gave me a lot of useful advice, but I couldn't find a way to paint the shadows well :I Like the dress in the original scan, this one's supposed to be made of satin and be more reflective than dresses made of fabric, so that's what I was going for. I toned down the highlights because they looked radioactive distracting, though.

This started out as a way to try out vector mask painting, which I'd read about in Nysha's tutorial. It was mainly used on the lilies (which were tons of fun to do, surprisingly!) and dress, but also on most of the shading, actually. I started this with the lilies as the centerpiece in mind, but then discovered the dress was also important DX Right about the time I'd exhausted my "heavy working" fuel. Yup.
The outlines aren't 100% black, just a lighter dark blue. They were supposed to be black since I always use colored outlines and wanted to shake things up a bit, but they didn't look too good, so back to my old ways ^^"

Other versions: 2000 x 2040 px PNG | 5000 x 5100 px JPG | 5000 x 5100 px PNG

Stats: 5000 x 5100 px (original size), 100 MB .PSD, 62 layers
Original scan: Kannagi: 05 by Lusia-jilish
WTF, Photoshop, running out of memory on an 100 MB file? My old PC was OK with 300 MB ones =___=
Done with the help of Nysha's vector mask painting tutorial.
Thank you again, Val, for your suggestions ;__;

That's about it, thank you everyone who views, comments, downloads and/or faves this~

    oh the lilies *o*
    I like that you added a bit of shine to the eyes, the scan looks like she's lost in other dimension =w=
    nice work on the dress too, it looks like you used the mesh tool on ai (did you?) o:
