As the title says I did my first vector trace. I chose to do Murasaki, from Kure-nai, since I had a nice screenshot from episode 8 when she was in her kimono. I’ve been wanting to learn how to do vector tracing for a long while but was always to intimidated to try. When I finished I figured the obvious thing to do is make a wallpaper with the trace – so I did.
First is 1280×1024, second is 1600×1200 and the last is 1920×1200:
How do you like them? I’m open to any constructive criticism. I think I did a decent job on it but don’t really know how to improve them. I think I’d like to try to do some sort of pattern overlay on her kimono or maybe put something in the background. Next I want to try to do something from Kaiba, I think; though, I probably will tinker a bit first.
