HERE’S MY second attempt at vector art.
This time, I completed it in less time compared to the first time I tried it.
To serve as my guide, I used a desaturated and posterized layer of the original picture at a depth of 6. That made the process a lot easier. However, I had to smoothen some areas a bit to achieve the look I have for it in mind.
Used the pen tool in rubber band mde for the background. I also created a version with different backgrounds but I realized that they looked much like clutter than art.
I also added that badge in the bottom right portion. 1987 signifies the year I was born in. I’ll be 22 soon.
AFTER SPENDING a night on this, I’m finally posting my first vector art. It feel triumphant, noting how rigorous the process is, at least, for me.
I started with this pic:
I know, this is not the best size for creating a vector art. It is best that you start with large photos.
It’s the first time that I used the pen tool. I swear. I didn’t know how to use it if I didn’t decide to learn how to create vector.
When I first saw vector rendering of some photos before, I thought it could be created in one click. I thought you’re just gonna use an Adobe Photoshop Plugin. But no, it could take you hours if you’re into detail.
For this one, I spent about five hours including trying to figure out what tools to use.
So, that’s the story of my first ever vector art. There’s plenty of tutorials online, you should try this activity if you haven’t done it yet.
