This is the next installment of my Ultimate Vector Tutorial series. In this installment we will use the techniques learned in parts 1 + 2 and see how they can be applied to create a vector image.

The lineart I used can be found here: [link]

Enjoy! And please, if you have any questions or comments or requests for future tutorials let me know. I love these things ^^

I think ur tutorial is the best one i've seen so far for vectors...really! i'll try it out right away cuz i've been struggling with vectors for quite some time. I do have a question, though...What about vectoring a photograph? Is the technique used any different than with the sketch? And what would u recommend to a beginner? To start with a sketch or a photo first??

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Happy New Year and may it be an incredible one for you!! :hug:

Thank you for the lovely tutorial. I'm sure that it will help me and my husband become a formidible team of artist and colourist! Thanks so much for the easy to read instructions and the screenshots are easy to understand as well. I took a look at Illustrator once and nearly fainted, it looked that complicated! ^O^

Thanks for taking the bite and intimidation out of it! You're an excellent teacher!

Thank you so much for saring this. Illustrator and I have never been very good friends when it comes to coloring, and this makes much more sense than the way I was trying to do it.

minimonster777 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2005
Well, sort of. I learn a lot from observing other people's art - I like to copy photos and stuff for pose reference, and sometimes if I see a color scheme I like I try to make my own work of art using those colors :)

Right now I'm in art school, and hopefully I'm still learning new things!

This is awesome, but have you ever tried Adobe Streamline? It's especially designed to turn sketches into vector lineart, paths and all.

sanya Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2005
It's easy to find on p2ps or torrent sites... it's not a perfect program but judging but how clean your linearts are, it might atleast save you some time! :D You've just got to play with it a lot.

I would love to draw like this. But I need the program, "Illustrator". Sorry if I am acting... 'n00bish' but my specialty is MSPaint, not that sorta stuff like photoshop... ^^;

wow awesome tutorial!
I definatly try it out!
I'm a first semester art student at the Art Institute and man I stink at drawing but I still wanna be an animator! lol
so I've got a lot of work to do


*getting to the point *
anyway I had a basic computers class today and it included a lesson on how to use illustrator to make posters and stuff... eeek!!! ehehhehe well lets just say that one flew about a mile over my head especially since I'm a pc user lol and he did all this on a mac! I was soooooo lost. someday I'll learn how to the mac works lol but my mac-using friends have yet to convert me lol

well I hope you have a great day and thanks for the awesome tips!

Thanks! I go to the Art Institute too...the one in Illinois, the Schaumburg campus. Which one do you go to?

I used to use a Mac for Illustrator, but now I only use a PC...I guess the basic concepts are the same...but not the keyboard shortcuts, LOL!
