I have created this as part of my final assignment as a complimentary task.

I have not designed this tutorial for the average illustrator user. You need to know how to use the pen tool and other basic features of illustrator.

All u need to know to making a vector is in here, however I cannot guarantee a perfect vector, as practise makes perfect.

Please let me know if you find bugs and spelling/grammatical errors as I have awhile before I have to submit it.

Please let me know if you follow it or if it helps as it will make the time I spent on it worth while.

Tutorial i created on vectoring vehicles: [link]

Original piece: [link]

Thanks guys

So I've got an impertinent question... I've never really tried any "realistic" vector work, everything I've done (which isn't much) is all cartoon style. Do you always trace the figure to get started, or did you just do that for this tutorial, because it's an intro to realistic human vectors? I know tracing is considered practically evil to all artists worth their salt, so I wondered if this was an "exception to the rule." Thanks for this tutorial, and thanks in advance for your clarification of this point.

This was extremely helpful thank you. I finally get the whole pasteurizer and contrast thing that a lot of tutorials have but don't explain that you have to edit the levels.

I can't even being to tell you how helpful this way. I'm just starting to work with vector as a more powerful illustration tool and my teachers are very bad at explaining. "Just use the pen tool" doesn't quite cut it. I found this halfway through my project and ended up completely redoing it because now I understand! My piece is looking much nicer and I am so, so grateful to you.

So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

I don't understand the hair section. This is 2 years old and AdRiot may not be here but what is the brush supposed to look like? I also use Photoshop so I don't know how to trace with a brush.

Great tutorial and neat presentation.
Just wondering, is it cheating using gradient mesh?
just-two Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2009
Also, on the third page, under "scene", you wrote accept. In context, I believe you mean "except". (Sorry, I know I'm coming off sounding rather rude, but I truly do just mean this as constructive criticism.)
just-two Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2009
First off, let me say that you are an amazingly talented artist. That said, I can't help but feel, looking at this tutorial, that you made it as a means to brag about your phenomenal skill rather than actually instruct. But you did a lovely job on your project.
AdRoiT-Designs Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2009
first off. this tutorial took me forever to put together and was part of a school project... the fact that you think i did it as means of bragging is quite insulting
