Estelle - With Vesperia by Dice9633 Estelle - With Vesperia by Dice9633
Arrggh! So many layers and layer effects!!
Anyways. I bring you this.

This was one of those rare cases where a sketch I made was used as the final draft. Now, this is after a TON of cleaning and editing and I still could have done a better job -- the scan I worked with was really tiny, but only because I had trouble redrawing it to the same "effect" I pulled off in the sketch, so decided to work with it.

TIME: 15 hours?
Hardest part: Settling on the colour of the piece -- I wanted night, but still colourful
Best part: making it "glow"

May still make changes....zzzzz
EDIT: Made Changes. REDUX.

Click [link] here for the detail (i.e.; blown up version)

EDIT 2: A big thanks to UK's NEO Magazine for allowing me a page in their issue 101 "Tales of" feature. :)
I was so damn happy about it!

My 360 died so there's a whole lot of nothing happening for me either.

One thing I could take from this picture is that the star Brave Vesperia could be symbolic of her relationship with Yuri and the rest of the guild, but more Yuri specifically. Yuri was always like a big guiding "star" for Estelle, when Estelle was confused about her powers and her sudden label as "poison" It was Yuri who comforted her and gave her the resolve to push forward and look for Pharaoh. When Alexei kidnapped her and she was "lost somewhere" Yuri was the "ringing bell/ guiding star" that brought her back. I might be looking WAY too deep into it but that's what I got from your drawing.

Sorry for the delay, it was buried and I've kinda ignored the site. I really, really like this perspective on it. I won't lie, I created it to create something "pretty", but I always ready much more into Yuri and Estelle's relationship than many do or the game implies.... or at the very least, I thought their bond was a lot stronger and less "forced" than many Tales hero+heroine match ups. Whether romantic, sibling-like, or simply as very good friends, these two saw passed highbrow and low class.

Absolutely stunning! Your hard work really paid off in this beautiful drawing! I must admit, the glow is my favorite part of this drawing, can't wait to see what else you'll do! And just for fun, Vesperia means "Evening star" right?

I think so, sadly been sometime since I played the game and my X3-shitty is dead. I'm glad you like it; it sounds lame, but I hope one way I can capture people is with an alluring look; I'm not exactly the best colorist, but I know some of the technical stuff in Photoshop. Really appreciate the comment!!

It's a beautiful picture. I love the fine drawing and the colors. Also the careful detail on the clothes, the movement of her hair. Nicely done.
