First off, whew. ^^; A LOT of work put in this one! I am exhausted and so done with it. This is my final project for Digital Illustration.<br />
<br />
<br />
Alright, well, there was a very specific purpose behind this piece. I made it with a contest in mind. The point of the contest to make a sort of kakejiku, which is a Japanese ceremonial banner celebrating Spring. As most of you should know, the Vernal Equinox was just a couple of days ago, so this was a good time for this. :)<br />
<br />
The other point of the contest was to include Gackt in it somewhere.<br />
<br />
<br />
Now, for my assignment we were supposed to do a gradient mesh. A gradient mesh uses a whole bunch of points on a grid to make a more realistic appearance. It's fairly difficult to explain, so let's just say that Gackt was done with a gradient mesh. You can see what the framework looks like here. I tried to give Gackt a realistic, but slightly idealistic and etheral feel. I'm fairly happy with the result.<br />
<br />
And then the choice of flowers was a choice made with Spring in mind. Both the irises and cherry blossoms are spring time plants.<br />
<br />
<br />
Alright, I'll stop blabbing about it now. ^^; It is complete.<br />
<br />

TsukiNoNekoThe grass, flowers and tree were supposed to be stylized. They were supposed to be a contrast from the realism in the face.

But I like listening to the Trax and Dong Bang Shin Ki.

WorldGuardianThey should make this into an album cover. Gackt-san rocks. The flowers look great, and his hair is so realistic, which is hard (especially since he looks so ethereal in real life. ;-)

TsukiNoNekoYou have no IDEA how hard the hair way, seeing as it was made with gradient mesh. >_>
