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
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.
Thanks a lot!
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
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.
