The final of three. Personally, I love them all, but I find this one this most captivating. I also think this one looks the best, which seems odd since I only spent about 5 hours on it. The least effort out of them all and it ends up looking better - hunh. I don't believe I'll be dropping vector art in the near future, but I really do need to get back to the whole shading and outlines... @_@ That needs practise. n.n;

//edit// My kanji was backwards! I had worked on the original, then mirrored it since Dream of Water - Yume was already facing that way, not realising my kanji was being mirrored as well. =_=; I've also fixed this problem with the print.
Hey- I do realise since you stated it that red, white and black is all cliche and stuff; *stares at her red, white and black shirt* o____o, but it just sorta happened, and and and... *gives up* Whatever. n_n! It still looks cool, methinks. @_@ It's also my fave.
Hell yeah. It's a kick-ass combination -- it just looks so...so very right. >o>; And wah, I hate it when things I like go mainstream, cuz' then everyone starts liking it too. Just like with bands. T.T; I prefer it when they're not so well known... I guess maybe it almost feels like "my" band when everyone isn't going on and on and on aboutthem. x.x; Heh, silly...eh?
I have to ask you - how do you do the eye shadow? It looks really natrual and perfect, and especially since these are your first pieces, you have a pretty good feel for what ever it is that you're doing.
Well, I use the same red as the eye color, except I set the brush opacity to 50%, but I guess you could just set the layer opacity to 50%. Then I use a brush set at 100% hardness - although, I don't think that matters, since I then use the smudge tool to push it towards the corner of the eye towards the tip of the eyebrow. After I'm done that, I switch over to the blur tool and set the strength to 100%, then blur away! ^^
