This is the next installment of my Ultimate Vector Tutorial series. In this installment we will use the techniques learned in parts 1 + 2 and see how they can be applied to create a vector image.

The lineart I used can be found here: [link]

Parts One and Two of the tutorial can be found here: [link]

Enjoy! And please, if you have any questions or comments or requests for future tutorials let me know. I love these things ^^

I think ur tutorial is the best one i've seen so far for vectors...really! i'll try it out right away cuz i've been struggling with vectors for quite some time. I do have a question, though...What about vectoring a photograph? Is the technique used any different than with the sketch? And what would u recommend to a beginner? To start with a sketch or a photo first??

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Happy New Year and may it be an incredible one for you!! :hug:

Thank you for the lovely tutorial. I'm sure that it will help me and my husband become a formidible team of artist and colourist! Thanks so much for the easy to read instructions and the screenshots are easy to understand as well. I took a look at Illustrator once and nearly fainted, it looked that complicated! ^O^

Thanks for taking the bite and intimidation out of it! You're an excellent teacher!

Thank you so much for saring this. Illustrator and I have never been very good friends when it comes to coloring, and this makes much more sense than the way I was trying to do it.

:excited: This is very helpful, even if one doesn't have Illustrator! :worship: Did you learn how to draw and shade like this on your own? :?

Well, sort of. I learn a lot from observing other people's art - I like to copy photos and stuff for pose reference, and sometimes if I see a color scheme I like I try to make my own work of art using those colors :)

Right now I'm in art school, and hopefully I'm still learning new things!

--Sorry I din't reply right away, I accidentally deleted all the comments from my inbox, lol!
