Vector Tutorial v2 by donbenni Vector Tutorial v2 by donbenni
#Please note, there is a new version of my Vector Tutorial series. Click [link] to view Vector Tutorial v3#

Phew. This was pretty tough. Feedback please. I can't tell if it's good or really bad. Sorry about the file size. But i figured, you get what you pay for (in download time...).

Funny thing. In Photoshop, this tut is 2.5 metres long!

why can I only view version 3 of your tuts? I must be dumb, or something...

hey whats up dB.Dantespice here,with a confusion.Its about the wheels part,i got the circle tool,path thing etc. down,but what do you do with the actual rim? Do you just copy it? im not very sure how to do rims.

donbenni Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2007
Hey. I tend to start by drawing a circle for each section of the rim: one for the whole thing, one for just inside the rims, one for around when the spokes join the rim and one for the area behind the spokes. I then apply the colours, shading etc. to these circles to make it look like the rim in the photo. For the spokes i draw around everything related to the spokes as one colour. Then i draw in the darker areas on the side of each spoke. Then add the light areas to the front faces of the spokes. Then add the central hub area with the bolts. After all that you can add in a disc with calliper behind the spokes if you like.

I'm sorry, that looks hard to understand without an image to help you. I'll make sure to really cover wheels well in Tutorial v4, which should be out in a month or so.

Great tut, this one is really helping me to vector, not just cars, but objects as well. I'm learning things I thought people wouldn't use at vectors. Thanks a lot for sharing this tutorial :)

Great!!! =D

very nice tute, just what i been looking for. thanks mate.

btw dunno if anyone else realised but the nsx is a mid engined car..and there wouldn't be any front mount..;)

:icondonbenni:
donbenni Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2007
You mean there wouldn't be a front mounted intercooler? Yeah of course there could be. There are other rear engine cars that have FMICs; they have the pipes run down the car to the engine at the rear. Just look at the original photo, the intercooler is there.

:iconaaronactive:
aaronactive Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2007
There could be..but sorry that NSX definately does NOT have a frontmount on it..

On a rear engined car..even if that NSX was turbo..it'd be stupidly inefficient to run pipes down the side of the car..you just would'nt do it.

Its the radiator..since Honda didn't want hot air passed from the rear of the radiator underneath the car its extracted through the bonnet..hence why the bonnet has vents!

Anyway, thats off the point..i'm not having a go at you or anything just stating the facts!

Keep up the good work :)

This "tooning" thing seems interesting. However, i cant seem to get your tutorials to open. Am i doing something wrong? Your work is fantastic, by the way.

:icondonbenni:
donbenni Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2006
The tutorial is opening for me. Try it again, sometimes dA refuses to open certain images, but it usually sorts itself out again.

Try this one too, it's a newer version of the one you were trying to view:

Preatty cool tut :w00t: but one thing about this tutorial,i know this is like a noob question but uhh,i dont really get how to do all those highlights and stuff like dat. but anyways, this tut ROX :headbang: keep it up! :headbang:

This is a common question but one to which i never really get an answer. What is your problem with the highlights?

well,you see,i dont really know were to put the highlights and stuff.

The idea is to build it up layer by layer. Fill the entire car in one colour (your base colour) and then on a separate layer fill all of the areas darker than your base colour with a darker colour, then on another new layer fill in all areas darker than that previous colour. Repeat this step a few times. Theoretically you could do this process lots and lots of times which would become boring, so to save this you group similar colours together so you only need to do it maybe 6 times in total. You will then have a base colour, 3 darker shades and 3 lighter shades. It really can't get explained much more than that.

I got a question. I'm currently doing a vector on my boy-friend's S2000 but the car is black and I made the outline colors black. Should I change them or make the base color a bit lighter than black?
Reply
:icondonbenni:
donbenni Featured By Owner May 9, 2006
I've only done black a couple of times because it's pretty tough :p To start with i'd have a base of dark grey, so you can tell the difference between the black lines and the paint. Then add the lighter shades. Then add the black bits.

Hope you get it sorted. A black S2000 sounds good, keep me posted :)

Thanks, I couldn't wait so I just decided to go a dark dark gray. It's not as good as your vecs but it's my first time. I'll send you a link when I'm done.

I am stuck on the stroke part of the lines. I don't get how to do it because whenever I do it...the lines look horrible. They aren't evenly accented etc... Any suggestions?
Reply
:icondonbenni:
donbenni Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2006
Sorry this is my fault, i didn't explain it properly. After you've created the path, right click on Work Path in the paths window and select Stroke Path. Then select Paintbrush from the list, deselect Simulate Pressure and click OK. Now for every stroke you perform to a path after this, you can just click the stroke button at the bottom of the paths window.

Hope that explains it well enough, and sorts the problem out :)

one question...how do you get just a line or so on the car ...with the pen tool you can't make lines....unless you connect them somehow so making curved lines and all is a problem.
