BEFORE anyone cries plagiarism, Celestial Envoy Issun -> [link]
is also by yours truly. I had to remake it for the competition because:
1) It uses disallowed copyrighted images
2) It's too small
Treat this as the competition version of Celestial Envoy Issun
So I vectored in everything and used the given image of Ammy. Actually I wanted to count the layers (because this is the first time photoshop is actually lagging due to the LARGE amount of layers) but I'm too sleepy to do that now.
Added in the string and sakura petals. I actually prefer this version because the scroll pattern looks more glossy and pretty
Plus I put in more effort to vector the brush so it looks more like the brush in the game (the one at the beginning, not Ammy's tail).
The only thing I don't like is Issun. Looks too cartoon. I think I should just leave him out actually.....opinions??
EDIT: blurred some stuff to make it more blended in...
And now that I'm not so sleepy, I've counted the layers: 87 layers and a canvas 3300 x 2550 pixels...O.o no wonder photoshop was lagging so bad this time...
