This vector was A LOT of fun to do... probs the most fun I've had in a long time. That's not to say I don't have fun with my other vectors... just this one consumed me!

And it's my new tutorial over at VectorTuts+ :love:

I'm so proud of this piece for several reasons... I'm getting more and more confident with creating my own hair styles... I'm using reference images less for skin shading guides and I'm trying to make prettier backgrounds.

I did this after the time I ordered Red Orange by `lolita-art, so I think the colours have inspired me a lot... although I didn't realise until I was looking over a past journal that the colours were so similar haha

Many thanks to:
by *Tasastock

And to the ever wonderful `CrisVector for giving me to idea to create the backlit background for this piece. You rock :hug:

The name of the vector is by suggestion by ~Outovsyt who is as creative as always with names :| --- thanks babes... I just changed it from "Steve" to "Stevie"... fml.

100% vector created in Adobe Illustrator CS5

This is like the Mona Lisa of vector art.

Aw, it's beautiful!
I'mworking with vectors in graphic arts class here. I'm striving to do something as beautiful as this.

Beautiful work, the contrast of the red hair and the green background is always lovely. I particularly enjoy the details of the braids, the highlight on her cheek and her lips (You've always done lips so much justice.)
