Salt Tears by GoblinQueeen Salt Tears by GoblinQueeen
Trying to catch up, personification of Soy Sauce to go with wasabi and ginger (and I guess the chile, too, though I got a little sidetracked from the spice idea).

Media: Illustrator, texture created with scanned papyrus. As this uses photo texturing for background elements by definition, it does not qualify as 'vector' work.

Sorry again for the larger watermark, but as some of you know, I've been having trouble with people taking and using for auction and other such things without permission, so just a necessary evil.

It's so perfect. I love the way you did her hair; it looks so shiny. And the outfit and traveler's hat suit her so well. :+fav:

Really love how you use bold shapes and colors. It works well with the textured bottle.

I love her dress design and all the expression behind her! Great job on the subdued colors on the character, hiding her under her bright hat. It's beautiful.

Wait... why is she crying? Why is she upset? :(

I... really wanna hug her. Poor girl looks like she needs a hug.

by all rights, I should have, but I never quite got into it. I liked the one episode I saw, it was about some blind guardians of a tower, I think.

Oh, I really like that especially....Hm.You should see the one in wonderland: it's deliberately surreal, like shamelessly so. I haven't been that weirded since I saw part of 'The Wall'.

The watermark almost looks like part of the composition here, sorta resembles the traditional signatures on Japanese paintings. (which is good for looking-at, but maybe not so for security-stuff....)

I know the originally theme was spices, but are you gonna do a round-up for the remaining sushi parts? :P I'd love to see your take on Nori and Sushi Rice. It's like a superhero team. And the differents villians could be baddies.

I have a vague idea on how to do edamame (Pinguino helped with that one) and I may try Sake and Boba. I thought about rice, but I'll have to really think about that one. Nori I can definately see a few things working.

Good looking texture on the back girl! By the way shouldn't the upper tear be a little bit smaller? . Jus the way I see it :)

realistically, yeah, it should, but I wanted to have a clear read and the exaggeration didn't seem too out of place with everything else ;)

I love her "drippy" looking hair! Ooow and her colors came out great hon! That shade of orange with the deep purples is a purdy! She'd be another fun one to make into a costume! Just getting that hair to look right would be the pain. =)
