Ooh. Vectors!


Now I've known vectors for a few years now. I recently started using Illustrator and COULD JUST NOT get over the fact that no matter how much I zoom in, I don't see pixels. It is fascinating. It makes me so happy, my eyes water. Vectors are awesome. I love them. And I have been looking at a lot of HOT vector art. One evening I just got kicked and started off directly with the pen tool and my mouse. I would have ideally traced out a rough sketch, but this was just random.
Turns out I love doing this and Illustrator doesn't hate me too much either.
This is what I managed.



I HAD to do this character from my first (and sadly only, yet) comic book.
More of this character, 3D : Here.
Comic : Here.

Let me know what you think. Also if there is some nice vector art link you want to share, go ahead.
Have a happy day:D

Nice work. You make these vectors shine. I love them for that same 'resolution independent.' reason. A lot of freedom if you do not have to worry about resolution.
