hello everyone, just got done with this and wanted to share...it clocked in at 1gb and has over 100 layers, but i think it paid off lol...this was totally done digitally, so i wanted to post it in here along with the illustration thread, where the wip has been placed...the graphic novel comes out feb. 14, 2007, and if you would like to know more about it and the story, etc., feel free to ask! anyway, the pics:

whole thing:

i hope that everyone enjoys looking at this as much as i did making it, it was a blast! if you have any questions or want to be put on the mailing list for the book, feel free to let me know! laters! :wave:

oh, btw...the japanese on her hoodie says "neverending dream", which stands for have a neverending dream (h.a.n.d.), my clothing line that comes out in the spring...the other text says tokyo, japan, keeping with the japanese theme...

The girl looks wonderful. I think the car need some more reflections to make it shine, especially towards the front and on the hood.

Nice image :) I did notice though that none of lettering actually conforms to the folds in the cloth, it's just stuck on top, this is particularly noticeable with the white lettering on her top because that doesn't even seem to be shaded to conform with the folds.

thanks for the kind words and pointing out sutff i missed! lol sometimes i look at something too long for my own good...i added reflections/shadows for the girl, and more highllights on the car, makes it look more complete now, i think...i also redid the background and some of the type (my website is being re-done, will be up soon)...lol i did the white lettering on the hoodie on purpose, trying to showcase my line, i think i did it subconsciously lol...the lettering isnt a big deal on the poster, honestly you can barely tell its there, but i see what youre saying though, and i think that ill fix it the next go round! lol...thanks all! laters! :D
