Character is Shirasaka Koume from The idolmaster: Cinderella Girls.

This is my entry for the Fuck Frills contest. The project is based off a superb drawing by the hands of エフ萌え.

I crafted this one over the span of 2 months with an exhausting 3 week rush right before the end. The entirety of the lineart is done with filled shapes. The shading is mostly constituted of a combination of blurred shapes and gradient with a few solid colors. I used patterns on her sash. This was traced using both Illustrator CS6 and a fair amount of my lifespan.

I still think it didn't take me as much skill as the person who drew the image originally but the vector definitely took me a lot of efforts and time. Thank you very much.

 I can't believe this, you even managed to capture the texture on the center belt tie. Very impressive, congratulation on completion!

Ah yes, that belt, I couldn't figure a good way to reproduce the ropes correctly so I ended up just redrawing it thread by thread. Thank you very much.

Iori is still the queen of my personal list. Koume is close second by a small notch.
