What's holding up her face?
Nothing but blue skies...


Finally. Hah. This took way too long, I love flowers but if there's such a thing as overkill, this is the epitome of it. But as long as you ignore the fact that there is actually no blue in the picture, I think it turned out pretty good.

The image here has been shrunken down 50% from the original, and not to mention there's the line pattern covering most of it, so I decided to take some cuts from the original at 100%, please do look because I put a bit of effort into this and I'd hate for you to miss all that lovelydetail boys and girls:

You do make it look easy, that's for sure. It looks so simple but it's not. The creazy detail you get is just that: crazy. Props to you, girl. I actually like the fact there is no blue in here, lol. I like blue, but the lack of blue in here just makes you imagine how the sky might be like beyond the flowers. And the yellow is pretty. I do like tulips, but lilys and orchids are my favorite. Takecare. Mai.

I might do some of those soon :) I miss doing flowers a lot. You like the colour blue right?

I like many colors, actually. It depends no the shade of the color, though, lol. But, yes, blue is one of them, in pretty much any shade imaginable. :) Can't wait. Mai.

You make a 1x3 vertical transparent canvas on photoshop, and make the top pixel whatever colour you want the lines to be, then you go to Edit>>Define Pattern and save it as whatever. Then just do whatever with your new pattern. I rasterized, tilted, and erased out some parts for this.

Wow, this is awesome! I came over here from your boyfriends page, and your vectors are stunning!

I looked at the close-ups and they're wonderful! I'm usually more of a blue-gray-green person myself, but these colors feel so warm and sunny, like a hug. I love the way you've done the tulips, they look fabulous. I also REALLY like how you have one of the petals extending out past the top border. Very cool, it really adds to it.

Excellent work! :)

My secret weapon, photoshop. But mostly I put the different colours on various opacities that seem to work together, if I still have the PSD file I could send you a section to show you what I mean.
