Vectors...well, me and vectors did not like eachother for a long time. A few months ago I finally tried to use them again, and I realized what I had been missing. If you've got a tablet, they make digitally inking something a WHOLE lot easier, in my opinion.
Anyway, this is really something, whether it was your first completely vector drawing or no. I really think the face and hair are great looking. Nice work!
*kills Vectors* grrrr we are doing dumb flash and my stuff is far from finshed right now I hate vectors so very very much, danm you and your awasomeness, this totaly rocks! *sigh* its been a long week...anyways I love it great work! I'd be inspired to work even harder if my deadling wasn't on friday ><
It's really good! The face and hair are particularly well done. I like the colour scheme too, but I feel that the darkest shading on the skin is a little too dark, particularly on her right arm (on our left ) it just looks a bit too dark. But then again, that same colour looks fine for the shading on the other side, so maybe its because there isn't any gradation (is that a word? I mean gradient consistency ... or something ).
This is very good for a first piece of vector art, and very good even if it wasn't a first attempt!
This is a nice style change to your usual, always great gfx art! As I great fan of your art, I can just say, again you hit the bulls eye! But may I ask a stupid question, how does someone start in this art? I mean, how did you start? I always thought about doing such thing too, but never really had the guts or knowledge....
it's pretty simple and yet hard as hell _^_ I'd recommend adobe illustrator for that, don't use corel, it's shit. at least fior me it is ^^'''
you can start in two ways - find a ref pic and draw shapes on it or just draw looking at the pic on your table or imagine the character. If you can't draw people you should place a photo on the background layer, but then it's too easy.. anyway. you keep drawing shapes with the pen, adding, deleting and curiving anchor points.
I, myself, use too many layers. I start from the head - since it's most fun. i'm having the color and shape of the face on one layer and on the second i draw shapes of eyes etc, on another i draw white blinks.. And i transform all that till i'm satisfied ^^''
i don;t know if i can explain it better, ask some more detailed questions and maybe i'll be able to help
Well thank you. I will try something out, when I have a little more time. Since I can't really draw it will be a mess, but hey, maybe I find an easy way for me to make a satisfactory picture. Anyway, I'm impressed by your work and look forward to more
