+ Hitoiro - Mika Nakashima + by Fainaru + Hitoiro - Mika Nakashima + by Fainaru
Hey everyone! ~ Admist all the Cassis looping and homework piling procrastination I found the time to vexel + Mika Nakashima +, a favourite J artist of mine. I found the inspiration through her NANA2 promo image and decided to do a pink gradient vexel. Hitoiro meaning "One Colour" was the main theme for NANA2 and I think it was appropriately titled no? Also, in true Mika fashion she has managed to invade the song into my brain; I actually was skeptical of the song at first but grew to enjoy it more.

Anyways, getting braces off tomorrow and that's how I found the time to submit on a Thursday. I'm currently using another gradient version of this as my wallpaper <3 (if you'd like that version instead, leave a comment). Hope you enjoy viewing this.

What's vexel? Is it like vecoring?
Anyway, don't know who this is but I think it turned out very well. I like the pink version more for some reason (whaaaat, I can like pink sometimes! :D).

Vexelling is more commonly mistaken to people as 'vectoring' since both use paths and the pen tool to create. The last few works I've been submitting were vexels* and those are works that use the pen tool and shapes, plus rasterizing (using blending effects) to create from a reference image : ) You can tell they're vexels because they often look like a cartoon version (with lots of layers of shapes) of an image. It's a fairly new term for me as I've only really understood it this summer .

And thank you ^_^

Hmmm, that certainly sounds complicated... You should do more, maybe I'll figure out more about it that way. :D

You're really good at vexeling, haha. :D I never EVER have the patience to finish one, lol. I always try, but I never finish or I give up. :'(

Keke. Thank you :3

Aw, don't give up. I recently felt the same way a few months ago, but managed to 'focus' long enough on the project to complete it. Give it some time, I usually leave a few projects and get back to them months later.

Wow, that looks really good! I have no clue how to vexel. It almost like you drew it with markers.

The pink version is nice, but I love the gradient one!

Congrats on getting your braces off. That must have been one of the happiest days of my life. I haven't gone back to the ortho since, even though I was supposed to go for a check-up two years ago. :XD:

Hehe ~ Thank you! Haha. Markers? That's a new one.

LMFAO. It actually sucked after I got them off because my retainers are so freaken annoying. I have the clear ones and they hinder me from talking properly. I'd rather have my braces man D:

I got "invisible retainers"-- they glue these really thin strips of plastic/metal in behind your teeth and it hurts really bad for the first week but you get used to it and then you don't have to worry about losing your retainer, or it affecting your speech.

WHY COULDN'T WE ALL BE BORN WITH MORE OR LESS STRAIGHT TEETH??? :angry:

Wow that's so cool. I think my friend used that as well :3

LMFAO ~ Argh, for myself, it wasn't that my teeth were misaligned but it gave me an overbite so I had to yank out 4 teeth and get braces. Now it's fixed and I have my teeth back. ROFL~

But you're right, I demand we all should be born with straight teeth and nice mouths.

Oh snap, we have reverse scenarios. My cousin had an underbite D:

It's so sad you had to wear headgear too *ouch man*

I had an underbite, so I had to wear reverse headgear! It's a hilarious contraption, with a pad that sticks to your forehead and another one on your chin, plus wire rods on which you hook the elastics that connected to your braces :xD: Luckily, I only had to wear it at night, not at school.

There was also not enough room for all my teeth so they stuck out strangely :bucktooth: So I also got 4 teeth ousted. And now I have perfect teeth. That's my wonderful tooth tale.

Hehe, really? I actually prefer the gradient on my desktop vs the pink (better on my eyes I guess?) but glad to hear you like it.

:steam: WHADDIDYOUSAY?!? Ha? Well 'ha' on this *kicks your hands so you can't use the keyboard* Pft, my teeth were perfectly straight but I was forced to get them to 'fix' my mouth. Ugh.

Your teeth weren't crooked but your mouth was? O__o Like your jaw?

Nope.

They said I had more of an 'overbite' and the only way to fix that was to yank out like 4 teeth and get braces. Exciting, I know.
