Heres my....5th submission. This one was tough, it gave me lots of trouble. I really liked the original photo so I felt like vectorizing it. The toughest part was the hands, and they still arent any good, but whatever. The face took me forever. The left half of the jeans I had to do like 4 times. The hands and the hair are just about the only things I don't like about this piece, everything else is good. This took about 8 hours to complete over 2 weeks. This piece has 55 main layers in which there are 1740 paths (17928 points). I'm so happy to have completed this one, FINALLY.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE FULL PIECE!!! :)

P.S. Here is the original photo: [link]

hi there comrade.....i love the interesting contrast of the shirt with the strong, solid, bright background color. The pattern of the shirt provides a very nice collaboration with her hair to further emphasize the overall contrast with the background. this piece really stands out. seems like shes in some hypnotic trance there with the stare though, dunno....just the impression i get. but overall, interesting color schemes. was the outfit based off of some picture or is it of your creation?

da se i ja pridruzim komentarima :) svaka cast na trudu i detaljima, jako lepo uradjeno, mada moram malo da prokomentarisem pozadinu..nekako mi prazno, mozda nesto fali..da nije tako ravna, ili da je druge boje..anyway good job on this one ;)

Haha, pozvana si za komentari always. Damn, I can't write srpski. Ya the background is empty. I could have done something much better but I left it open...cus I didn't want to spend much more time on the piece. Ya it looks a bit awkward. Thanks for the koment, I really appreciate it :) CAO CAO!

Very good job! The only things I don't like are the things you mentioned, hands & hair. Also work some on you typografy. The rest is perfect! the face is very realistic and has the same expression as the image! here pants are also very good and yes the shirt also
I know pin stripes are evil but this are less pinstriped then I did ;)
good job :+fav: and a :+decwatch:!

This has to be one of my all-time favorite pieces of vector art =D Favorite actress + an incredibly good vector = more love from me than you can imagine LOL

The hands do look a little odd, but hands are *almost always* the hardest parts (at least in my opinion). Her face is gorgeous, and I love love love the skin tone. The part I love the most has to be the jeans. Most people can't pull off good jeans in a vector because they end up looking like slacks/pants, but you did an amazing job on them. The jeans have a watercolor kind of look to them and I love that. The button is also very nice as well =P

Sweeeet! Thanks, I'm reallllly glad you like it so much, I do too. She is also one of my ultime favorite actresses. Your right, the hands are odd, its cus they were difficult to recreate from the original photo; they are blurry in the original. I also just couldnt do them good, I got frustrated and wanted to redo them, but didn't, w/e. I agree that hands are tough. Ya, I think the face is awsome, its my favorite part becuase it looks real (in my opinion). The jeans are really cool, the side with the flower and button is better than the others side lol. I think the jeans are good too, thanks :) LOL ya the button is sweet, haha. Thanks for the awsome comment :) :) Ima check out your galllery NOW!!! Cyaaa

I like this a lot, it is very professional.
It might look really good if you come back to it at some later point in time and add creases in her shirt.

Very nice job.

Awsome, thanks for liking it. If you look at the original photo, there aren't any real "creases;" there is slight shading and highlighting (black and white) which I have put into the vector. I guess it could be better with different creases. I appreciate you comment. Thanksssss :)

Of course! In fact, if I haven't already, I will add it to my favourrites. You did a lovely job. And now that I look at it, you did include creases in this picture, slightly, and the original didn't really have any....nice detail. ^_^
