Blue Girl by megl Blue Girl by megl
This is my first serious attempt doing an vector illustration - feel free to comment!!

Paths were drawn in Photoshop and coloring done in Flash.

The background is of course just a texture

Very nice vector art, the hair looks a bit "stale" though.

I also like how it's a bit kinky but doesn't overdo it.

Thanks!! I think you're the first to mention it, and it's one of my favourite things about this piece. Gave it a lot of thought while making it.

Really nice! I too, like a lot of people, thought this was photomanip rather than vector. You have some serious skill! Good job :>

Very good job on the shading! I really like the amount of detail you put in this, with the various hues reflecting the body parts in light and more in the shadows; seen from further away, it could look like a real picture, but it's a good thing in my opinion that it's not more "detailed": the fact that one can still see it's a vector brings more to the picture, I think, than making it look "too" realistic. The hair also is nicely done, with the reflections in them highlighting their move/way of floating. Perhaps the general color tone should have been very slightly brighter, though, to place more of a focus on the character? But this is probably more a matter of personal preference than of technique, anyway. :)

Thanks a lot. I agree with you on the amount of detail - I love the face, that you can still clearly see it's a vector. And yeah - I've thought about it being a little too dark as well ... I might change that in a future version

The dark colours really set a mood, but if you drew that image, it would be better to draw more attention to it as a focus. You are good at vector art. It's awesome! ^^

I have this picture of Caprice and love it. I thought this was just fitered, but to do a vector piece, WOW!
Great work on the hair especially.
Can I ask why you colored in Flash instead of Photoshop?
Also, thanks for posting in my forum, that's how I got here, but I don't think you ever saw anything of mine. If you did, I couldn't tell because there was no feedback. Hope you can check in.
Again, GREAT VECTORING! I can't imagine the kind of time this took.

I colored in Flash because I like the way Flash smooth out the lines a bit when filling with color.
And yeah - I took quite a while, and I forgot almost anything else around me for a couple of days, 'cause I was so eager to see the final result and just knew it was gonna look really cool ;-)

Very realistic looking. But I think it would look nice with a different hue of blue.

Great vector, practically photorealistic. The hair and her face are simply amazing.

Yeah it's all vector! (not the background but the girl)

What can I say ... it took a while to draw ;-)

I can well imagine... aside from the incredible vector feat, this is incredible on all levels. Given a different shading method, the woman would be photorealistic. You obviously have an incredible knowledge of anatomy.

Especially women's anatomy ;-)

I agree with you on the shading ... and that's why I chose it the way I did. I really dig the quality it has now where you can obviously see that it is drawn with vectors.

I can see why. The vector style also adds a bit of contrast, and helps show the depth in the picture. A softer shading style might have left some of the anatomical details out...
