I totally didn’t think Romeo x Juliet looked like my type of anime at first, but then I watched the first couple episodes and got completely hooked. Now it’s one of my favorite recent series after Nodame Cantabile So yar, had to stop work on a Nodame wall to make this <3 I wanted to make the wall look like an old but well-loved illustration… not sure how well that came out, but that’s my justification for some lazy elements in the wall haha xD;; Getting the colors right was tough, but making the thick outlines was a lot of fun. Usually I’m obsessed with tiny outlines so this was definitely a nice change.
Romeo and Juliet outlines vectored from this scan, then painted in PS with hard round brush + mouse. Acorn leaves stolen from this scan that I grabbed off of saikusa’s photobucket account in the pre-monochrome scans days on MT. Textures from stock.XCHNG.
Edit: Seems like people either really like the fade-out or really dislike it. Since it looks like the latter outnumbers the former I’ve extended Juliet’s skirt out a bit more to improve the flow, but made Romeo’s coat only a leetle longer as compromise. It’d be way too long if I extended it out all the way xD;; Much thanks to everyone who commented and critiqued :]
