Update 8/30 - Fixed the trees in the background. Took about 6 hours to vector the entire thing. Let me know how it is
and if there needs to be any additional changes. I will be looking into adding more to the background for alternative
versions, but for now that's how it's going to be.
Whew! I never thought doing a proper vector and then applying it to a wallpaper would take this long.
This is my 3rd vector ever attempted (and my umpteenth wallpaper) with the help of my trainer and wife, Entity1660. With
her input (and input of 2 very awesome Minitokyo members through the Sandbox forum), I was able to pump this out in
about 3 weeks.
Tons of layers (don't know the exact number as I refuse to count) and many headaches/late nights later the final product
is here. The two most difficult parts were deciding how to color this and how to attempt the background. My original
background idea was to do a photo album of sorts with the other side of the wall having some hand-written lyrics by me
included. Things didn't quite pan out that way so I scrapped it and, with some insight from Entity, I came up with this
I think it works, though I don't think Hinata and Naruto blend in very well. Always room for improvement I say. I pulled
the vector idea from the ending credits of Naruto the Last movie. The scene itself was black and white aside from the
pink/red-ish color of the flowers on both characters. Feel free to look below.
Some Intersting Facts:
- Researched traditional wedding kimonos and found most are styled white, sometimes base red color depending. Make-up
for women in traditional weddings are with the white makeup, however one video I watched from a Japanese Stylist stated
that modern-day makeup is fashionable now even in traditional clothing.
- Yes I did use Google Translate for the Japanese. If something isn't right with the wording, please correct me so can
fix it on the wall. Thanks!
Taking that into account, that's how I came up with the colors for Hinata's Kimono.
