Rise - My first vector!

i did my first vector image yesterday!

obviously it’s not all vector (the birds, splats, and leaves are photos i’ve taken).

it’s a little more complex than it probably should be (the girl alone is like 40 layers) but i couldn’t get the hair to look right without them. it ran really sluggishly in Illustrator cs2, so i think maybe i’ll try streamlining things next time. and maybe i’ll play with gradients!

used the pen tool in Photoshop 9.0
