Ah… it’s finally done. Started this project back in June when I got a tablet as my bday present, took a while to finish it due to work and everything in life =/
Anyway, Alice is one of the few characters that I have always wanted to wall, and then I saw this character image on Alice’s monthly Undine magazine and thought I have to do something. After getting the tablet I was pumped and decided to vector it, even though I’m well aware that I wouldn’t have much time for it. And so after 3 long months I finished it. Lots of fun and pain in the process, but I guess it’s all worth it. After vector is done, I probably spent about a week or two to draw up the background.

七色のキセキ (Nanairo no Kiseki) literally means seven colours miracle, or miracle of seven colours. The miracle refers to the scene, and what gives birth to the scene (miracle) is sunlight, which is made up of seven colours. Of course, the rainbow has seven colours, and it could be related to the title, but the rainbow idea came much later after the title, so it’s just a mere coincidence.
Comment: The hair colouring was the first bump that I got. Took me a while to understand how to colour it right… and then, it was the eyes O_O. They were really really hard… probably because it was the first time I tried drawing eyes without basing on the original, and it took about 5 days until I have a version I was satisfied with… After the vector is done, coming up with an idea of the background was the next challenge. Since it’s Aria, I figured I should go with blue sky and water, and it turned up pretty alright. Oh, painting the clouds is one of the most fun part in the whole process.
