Original Sketch: [link]
Way to spend my birthday by finishing my very awaited vector of Hinata cosplaying as Mai Shiranui.
This was suppose to be done for like 3 weeks ago but I went to a little event called Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championships 2011 so I got delayed.
Making the outline was a bit easy but decided to make some minor changes like making Hinata instead wear Mai's 2011 outfit. What was challenging for me was coloring the entire thing from scratch since I just usually trace over where the shading & hilights were. I did the best that I could but I still suck on putting on shadings & hilights, light sources was never my thing...
In this version, I gave Hinata the color theme of who she is cosplaying, Mai Shiranui.
