Sorry for the re-upload - the previous submission was deleted after somebody reported it. Again :aww: This is so silly... >_>

If you have a problem with a deviation and the deviant in question doesn't seem to be a 10 y.o. kid who uses chatspeak and mistakes dA for Photobucket or MySpace, isn't it... more adult?... to try talking to that person first instead of reporting? Especially if the reason behind the report is a tiny Urahara image in one of the screenshots [well, at least that's what I suspect]? I'd risk saying that it's something personal. And I have my suspicions as to who reported me in the first place.

Anyways, here it is again :) Dear haters, I dare you to find something to report now.

--------------------------------

If there are any parts you find unclear, please don’t hesitate to comment. I’ll try to explain it for you once again in different words, if possible.

Also, I’ll be more than happy to see your own vectors, made with the help of this tutorial. ^.^

Last but not least, big thanks again to =Washu-M for letting me use one of her artworks :glomp:

Very useful. Thank you :) Btw, I think using clipping masks is the easiest way to make shadows.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU! for this wonderful tutorial of yours.

I've been using PowerPoint to make stuff for ages and its shape tool is kind of like Photoshops, but even with the similarities, there's still a lot of stuff that I haven't learned about vectoring in Photoshop and I'm glad to say I learned quite a lot from your tutorial.

Again, thanks! :)

Hi
I'm using Adobe Photoshop CS5 version to create a vector image. I have followed your instructions for making a line art and it has turned out fine. But soon as I change the pen tool settings from paths to shapes my line art disappears. I don't know why this happens. I have noticed in one of your screenshots you have a list of images underneath layer 1 where you have created your line art. It doesn't show that in my layers. I'm not sure where I'm going wrong

THIS IS THE BEST!!!!!

One question: On the shape layer you're working on, should the path line still be there?

Nvm, I was being stupid, I figured it out.

Like, when you hold conrol and click on a blank part of the canvas, there's that thin line around the edge from where you laid the shape with the pen tool.

I guess it's supposed to stay there XP.

Thanks anyways.

Oh, check my profile for the pic I made using your tuts.

I need some help .__.;;

I change the pen tool settings to shape layers and I traced the edges and I don't see any colors at all.

Hmmm can you take a screencap [but choose the pen tool first, so I can see all the settings] and link it to me somehow? Maybe if I can see the whole window, I'll be able to tell what's the problem :)

Cześć :)

Tu jest ten tutorial:

[link]

Jestem noga z czytania manuali, a Twój tutorial wygląda bardzo przystę;pnie, więc dlatego zależy mi na możliwości przeglądania go. Jak klikam na miniaturę, to się powiększa na kilka sekund, po czym znika, i nawet jeśli zamknę i otworzę jeszcze raz to nie działa. Dziwne, prawda?

Jakby dało się coś zrobić, nawet przesłać mi ten tutorial na maila, albo coś... to byłabym bardzo "dzwięczna" :)

I have a problem. Or maybe I'm just stupid. I've used the vexel method and now when I try to color it, okay, I make a new layer and start tracing the edges, but there is no color. o_o;; *can't explain properly*

Have you changed pen tool settings from paths to shape layers? You have to change it before you start coloring :)

I know, I changed it. But nothing happens.

No wait, I understand what I did wrong. Nevermind.

I could find over a thousand tutorials with copyrighted images in it that no one would even think twice about reporting. People just are butthurt over the whole screenshot issue now :XD:.
