Cherry Blossoms by GenjiLim Cherry Blossoms by GenjiLim
Entry for a contest by :iconlexiemoonstone: with the theme being trees.

I initially began working on something more original for the theme of trees, but I wasn't that satisfied with its progress, and it eventually took on a life of its own. This piece was my second attempt at an entry; a very popular concept, I know. "Cherry blossoms, how original" >_>, right?

[Edit: A particular quibble I have with this piece as a contest entry is that the theme isn't absolute. I realize there are cherry blossom trees all around, but the woman is the most in focus, there's a river, and there's a bridge: it's not a piece that screams TREES. Oh, well. I think it's purdy, though.]

I'm going to give a print of this as a gift to a family friend, as well.

I feel like there are countless things in this piece that I could refine; the more I look at it, the more I notice it needs improvement. But, I feel like it's not that bad of a stopping point, lest I'd work on it for another several hours. So, I'll just kick back and appreciate the work I already put into it.

~26 hours. Wacom Tablet + Photoshop.

Custom brushes I made and used for this piece: [link]

Oh yeah, and thanks to :iconadonihs: for his awesome hair brush :XD: Man that's fun to play with.

Sakura are really the prettiest trees in the world. Makes everything seem so peaceful.

If I had the money I would frame this and hang it on my wall for inspiration whilst I create!

Aw thank you!  That means a lot!  Sorry art is so expensive -- it's really the printing that costs so much, unfortunately.  Anyways, thanks for the nice comment. =)

Hello,
Excellent Work! My niece loves this and wants to cover her bedroom wall with this art? Do you have a graphics vector file available for purchase?

Thanks!  Since this is a print, I don't want to post a link to a high-res version.  Email me at genji83@hotmail.com with your request, and let me know it's you.

clarification, Such as an .eps or an .ai file so it can be scaled to a larger format.

Gorgeous piece of work, is it possible to get a larger canvas than 30 x 30 for purchase? Possibly a 48 X 48? If so, could you please provide contact information for me?

 

Thanks

Maybe, depends on the resolution of the original image.  I'll note you when I make a version like that.
