Pheew... I started out with a reference picture (of a playboy model, I might add) and wanted to see how close I could get to the original. In Illustrator... It was quite entertaining doing the basic vectors but quickly became a b*tch as it grew in complexity. The grid looks like something from a 3D viewport

So, even though there still are a couple of things I'm not happy with, I say "NO MORE of this sh*t" ... It feels like typed in each RGB for every single pixel in this picture...

Now please enjoy

UPDATE 4/6/2002


WOW... Thanks a bunch for all the nice comments! It is really appreciated! Since I got this overwhelming positive response I thought I’d slap a page up showing some screenshots from Illustrator.

This isn’t a tutorial, though I did write some text for each image. Check it out here: [link]

And thanks again

Wow! All this is done in Illustrator? Compared to this, I am a complete Illustrator amateur! I don't even have the faintest idea how to accomplish anything even remotely like this!

Hats off to you!

Watching your gallery Iīve found some other bullshit...another one of your lies, you said that you vector the two girls in some party...PFFF GOOD LORD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR STUPIDITY!! ANOTHER PHOTOSHOP FILTER!! please, reconsider my friend...maybe you have talent, but do yourself a favor..DONīT LIE AGAIN. thank you and forgive me if Iīm pissed oFF...cause I really am.
