Artist Comment

The title is so creative, I came up with it on the spot!

Anyway, this is the result of the first battle between me and Illustrator. Windows says this project was started in 2011, since I have some progress shots from back then, so this took roughly 3 years to complete (though all in all it probably took like 3 days at most).
What can I say, it was a steep learning curve. Didn't turn out too bad, since I'm still willing to use it, lol.

I used this scan; the hair on the right looks really weird so I left those blade-like parts out, and reconstructed the part on the left. Removed the cherry blossom petals too because they were too pink and happy for me, lol.

Here's more stuff:

    So fun the effect of her eyes. I just realized her pupils are white and not the usual black. I see some lovely gradients in a few parts and coloured outlines. Very nice and clean vector. You should have gone through the round of adding gradients to the entire piece!
