Nicely done! I'd like to color it.

Uh...could you explain vector art to me in a nutshell?
Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you!! and its all yours if you wish to color hehe

I love seeing what other ppl do with my lines hehe

As for vectoring lol, if i got a pound for everytime i had to explain id be rich
its a really confusing style of graphic painting so im not really suprised noone knows realy

right here we go with the explanation:

This is taken from Wiki:
Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based upon mathematical equations, to represent images in computer graphics.

Vector graphics formats are complementary to raster graphics, which is the representation of images as an array of pixels, as it is typically used for the representation of photographic images.[1] There are instances when working with vector tools and formats is best practice, and instances when working with raster tools and formats is best practice. There are times when both formats come together. An understanding of the advantages and limitations of each technology and the relationship between them is most likely to result in efficient and effective use of tools.

This is my run down version:
Its a method of making lineart and coloring using the pen tool in photoshop or anyother paint program.
you draw a guideline using the pen tool, then smooth out the curves in the lines or straighhten it by bending said lines.
Keep doing that until you eventually have your lineart.
Then to color, you draw a outline round the bit you want to color, choose the color and it automattically fills between the lines for ya

I use it to make really poo pixelated screenshots into 1080 HD size wallpapers. takes a while to draw and color out the whole pics sometimes but i think its worth it in the end

If you want to see a awesome vector artist, see here: Shes probably the best in this field

And if you would like to try it yourself, i have a tutorial you can use to explain it better

Thank you!

Interesting . . . I tried to Google an explanation, but apparently I didn't use the right search terms because it didn't bring me that Wiki article. I can't draw with a mouse to save my life; my hand shakes too much. But I might still be able to do this. I'd love to take a look at your tutorial.
Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well this should help on explanation hehe.
the following link is a topic on deviantart about what vectoring is.

as for the tutorial, its a photoshop one is that ok?

if not, i'll see if i can find you one for a program you have

anywhoo heres the photoshop vector tutorial: [link]

Hope that helps

Sorry for the delayed reply! Yes, a tutorial for Photoshop should be fine. I used to have Photoshop CS (until that computer died), and now I have PS Elements 6. So between the knowledge I have of the two of them, I should be able to use/figure out most Photoshop tutorials.

Thank you!
