One Shade of Grey by PheonixKarr One Shade of Grey by PheonixKarr
Since I finished the other Vector in one class instead of the three we were to take to do it, the teacher suggested I try another one, this time with Black, White, and One Shade of Grey.

Heeere it is. Second Vector ever! I think Im improving a bit ^^

I LOVELOVELOVE this picture, so much. Her eye and her necklace = pure joy.

that is brilliant!

How long did it take you to do that? I just cant get the hang of it, i think its because im shoddy with the pen tool.

Thanks!

It took about 7 hours, but it was only the second vector I'd ever done, so I think that contributed to a lot of that time :XD:

I despised the pen tool. But just keep practicing with it, and eventually it becomes second nature. Be sure you know how to change anchor points etc, thats pretty important for details and stuff.

how do you do these?

PheonixKarr Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
I use a program in my Computer Graphics Class called Adobe Illustrator - I use the pen tool to make shapes and fill them with the color I want. The thing about Illustrator, though, is that it works in shapes and not in pixels - I could blow this image up to the size of my wall, and it would stay sharp and not get pixelized.

You can do the same thing in GIMP,drawing paths with the pen tool and filling them.

Wow that seems really cool. I like the picture you did. And you should blow it up that would make really cool wall art, I think. Do you think it would turn out as good on GIMP?

Im not sure if it will be the same in gimp, It wont be able to be blown up huge, but it should look the same at this size....I cant think of any reason it would not.

It finally went "pkshhhhh" *make motion like mushroom cloud*

The cord doesnt work and the fan needs to be replaced. So it can be fixed, just... not immediately.
