Illustrator Portrait

Wow, I feel high tech... I have a piece that qualifies as vector art!

Another Computer Illustration project: Adobe Illustrator portrait. So... yeah. It's an Illustrator portrait of Ewan McGregor.

In the particular photo I replicated for that piece (not credited because I have no idea who shot it, I just know it's not mine), he does have a small hoop earring.

write tutorials?

I've thought about it, but Illustrator is really involved... I've done a demo of it at Akon when I conducted a panel for digital coloring, so it would be pretty time consuming to make a tutorial for it. I didn't learn it myself until I took a digital illustration class in college. : P

It's not out of the question... I just don't have the time to do it right now with getting ready for Akon and working on commissions.

what exactly is vector art? Like a definition of it....

The sorting process DA has here has a good definition of Vector Art:

"Vector art consists of creating paths and points in a program such as Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, and Flash. These programs keep track of the relationships between these points and paths. Every time the image is scaled, the paths are regenerated: this creates images that are infinitely scalable without degradation."

The main tool used in Illustrator is the pen tool, where you select a beginning point and an end point and then adjust a curve between those two points. Those two points and the curve between are turned into a math equation which the computer recalculates any time those points are moved, thus the image can be scaled to any size without degrading the picture quality.
