I haven't done a vector for myself for a while, so thought I'd treat myself since I've had some time of recent.

I wanted to explore a photomanipulation technique I previously tried, morphing the eyes, lips and face to a more surreal sort of look... but I also wanted to do a portrait where the main focus was the eyes and to try out a new shading technique.

All this in one vector huh?

Stock used:

100% vector in AI CS5 :)

I think this is very good work .. the eyes while surreal don't look overly so which is quite a trick to do!

Something to watch for: the eyelashes I think could do with a little work, maybe some thicker and thinner as if a couple of eyelashes clumped together, saying as her eyes look moist and dewey. I know the work is surreal portrait but the eyelashes are just a little too on the fake side of surreal to me, especially with such beautiful shading on the skin and detailed eyes.

Great Details:
* Great details on the eyelashes reflecting in her eyes and also the way you've extended them past the 'framing' of this piece.
* Iris details perfection yet again.
* Skin shading is beyond brilliant .. I couldn't spot what you were doing different in the live view I watched about 20 mins of. Can't wait till you teach us this new technique <img src="…" width="33" height="15" alt=":fingerscrossed:" title="I've got my fingers crossed."/>
* Great use of higlighting and lowlighting edges on her chin, lips and nose, really brings out the details.

Great work yet again Shar.

did you use the brushes in illustrator?  I find it hard to smooth vectors.  Advice is nice (:

I really like the white punch out with the hair, and the eyes look really good

The eye color is simply stunning. I love that it is the first thing your eye is drawn to because it's offset by all the white and subtle colors of the rest of the piece. :D
