I love this!! For my vector pieces I was wondering how to render the faces and this (and the ret of your art) helped me. How long did it take you to make the white speckles on her kimono, though?

I can imagine. My only kimono piece so far had no complex pose, no compound gradients (just two colors) and I used only three flowers, but that alone took me all night, never mind something as epic as your piece!!

Thanks so much for sharing. I have one question though, I have always wondered how artist create those beautiful Kimono patterns and designs. How did you create that one on the girl's Kimono?

i did the crane aside .. then i made it into a one shape by selecting (group) .. then i put it in a different layer and placed it under the shadow layer then cute the outside pieces that are sticking out so it looks liek it belongs to the sleeve.. and VUALA! ^__^ pretty sleeve!

awww thats cool i should really think about working on my own designs to make patterns instead of just using brushes and such. i also think it would be a great idea to do a tutorial on how you do these patterns. ^^

for your clothing folds, did you lower the opacity, then double layer? or did you do two different colors for the folding? I'm trying to do a piece with your coloring style now, so I'm curious. :)

I use a tablet for painting, but I actually found it MORE difficult to use for vectors.

I've tried but it never turns out the way I want it too... (T^T;) - I'm hopeless, LMFAO!

I probably need more patience and A LOT more practice, but so far, every piece of art I've seen that's blown my mind, have all been done on a tablet (which I don't have). So seeing something as friggin awesome as this, done with something as simple as a mouse kinda seems too good to be true. >.< :)

Hahahaha... Lol.
But if she can do it, there may be some hope for me after all >.<

are you doing this kind of coloring in photoshop or AI like takumy? I can teach you an easy way to get her coloring style right if you use photoshop.

lol believe me I know how you feel cuz i've been through the same thing until I got one of my own. But I find vector work easier to do with a mouse (or in my case the trackpad) I definitely agree that airbrushed and painted works that have been done without a tablet totally boggle my mind aswell!but I guess its the skills as opposed to what tools used though, n practice can get you there... I certainly have a lo0o0ong way to go *sighs*

Anyway, I guess practice is key here and the more you practice the better you get and the faster you become especially when you find your own techniques from trial n error n learning from great artists like Takumy :)

No one is hopeless :D you can do it! good luck ^^
