Second Vector Piece ever! Woohoo! Small achievements *grin*.

I'm teaching myself to use Illustrator. This one has been in the works for a while. First off it took me a while to do the lady, (I know that I will come to love the pen tool, but we haven't reached a rewarding relationship just yet), then I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with her to make it a finished piece. After working on it this morning and getting it to this stage (final finishing bits in Photoshop), I'm still not entirely sure that it's finished, but I'm getting bored with it, so up it goes. Remind me next time to have a bit more practice in vectors (or anything) before attempting to do a person, the faces are so hard! It's also not a direct tracing off posterised stock like my first one was, so there's a fair bit of improvisation, which is probably where the not-quite-right bits are, XP
Loosely based on one of my characters.

(I wasn't sure about the section to place this in, I hope Vector is ok since it looks like quite a bit is in Photoshop, but I spent probably about 90% of the time in Illustrator, soo.....)

i love the colors and the design elements best, the woman works for me best on the right side of her nose over ( like if the left side of her was cropped out and she was rotated and pushed towards a border) i kind of feel bad giving that imput in parentheses, but i know its your early working with vectors and if this is you know i can't imagine how good you will do later.

i like the hair a lot :D so reddish and very well done :D how did you put the ink spot in there... is it something that comes with illustrator? a brush or something? it looks so cool! :D

Thanks! The ink splots were added in Photoshop, they're from stock @ stock.xchng. There's about 5-6 of them there I think, all different sorts. I'm glad you like it!
