Sheppard vector drawing

By crysothemis
Recently realized I hadn't uploaded this one here, so here it is.

About a year ago I got curious about vectors, so decided to try my hand at them. This is done entirely with the pen tool in Photoshop, which is, yes, completely boneheaded, but it was the program I had, and I wanted to see if it could be done.

I had a lot of fun playing with the smoothness of the curves and altering the transparencies of intersecting shapes. But it took about six times as long as a pencil drawing, so I haven't gone back and tried it again.

Different style, indeed. But not bad.
Even if I don't like, that his hair looks so brown. XD It's a really good job you did.

Wow! I love it!
(The style of the drawing reminds me the style of the movie "A scanner darkly")

If your like work with vector, try "Adobe Illustrator", the pen tool in "Illustrator" is better than the pen tool in "Adobe Photoshop" ;-)
(but in Illustrator you must work with vector -> no pixel)

Sadly, being a lefty who uses her shaky right hand for the mouse...I doubt I'd ever be able to do this lol! :D

Thanks! Actually, the cool thing about vectors is that they don't require much coordination at all. You can adjust the lines and shapes to your heart's content after you lay them down. So don't rule them out for that reason! ;)

I don't have photoshop though, so that rules that out!

Thanks though, and you should definitely do more vector drawings, cos this is amazing! :)
