I quit WoW again. This is the proof. Apparently it’s been over six months since I last dusted off the vectoring tools. This was just a quickie, from episode 10. Grabbed a frame that appealed to me from toward the end and ran with it. It involved re-drawing most of the details in her hair, because the image was so dark and the compression high enough that a single motion frame like this ended up having the finer detail completely destroyed, if it was even there at all. I’m fairly happy with how it came out from a fairly low-quality source given how much redrawing of details was necessary.

Hopefully we’ll get to see the end of this show eventually too. :(

About the size: I’ve ordered a new monitor to replace my current one, which has seen over five years of constant use and is starting to burn out a bit on me. Replacement is a higher-resolution panel (2560×1440) and there’s a dearth of good stuff out there in this sort of size, which was my main motivation for wanting to do some vectoring again. Never hurts to prepare ahead of time. Knowing me, this will probably be the start of another flurry of activity followed by months of idleness. I guess it depends on whether any current or upcoming anime have any shots that I want to work with. A fair few next season look promising at least.
