Artist Comment

This is the frist time ever ive even worked with vectors, not only the first image ive tried to vectorize but the first time ive even worked with vectors =.= since i regularly work with a photographer he gives me GIGANTIC images already so ive never even bother (also cause its photography and not design) in getting to know vectors. . .

soo. . . without further ado. . .
chan cha cha chan!

(i think its good. . . actually i dont really know =/ )

    Well, the thumbnail looks nice. Can I ask what program you used to make this vector? I'm just going to give you a little constructive criticism on my knowledge of vectors (even though I myself am still learning). It's really kind of sloppy and a lot of the edges don't meet where they should. Take for example the hair ribbon in Asuka's hair. There is a gap from the ribbon to the hair. Also the outlining almost looks like it was done with a pencil (and Rei's head has an outline but Asuka's doesn't). Lastly, the black blurred lines look really awkward.
    Some things to work on:
    If you are going to use an outline, make it look neat. Keep all the colors inside the outline and make sure there aren't any gaps.

    I hope I didn't sound too mean...and I know like you said, this was your first vector. So I'm sure with some practice and some tutorials on using the pen tool (many can be found on youtube and many other sites) and vectoring, you'll be making cool flawless vectors in no time. So keep trying and I'm sure you'll get the hang of it! :)

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

    no no no please go ahead . . . i know about that but how do i make all the edges connect?
    im using photoshop:
    -pen tool to make shapes and fill them up with the color (layers to make shadows/highlights)
    but still i dont always get the exact edge. . . (cause i have to hide the layers ive made to see the original low res image to know where all the highlights/shadows are so sometimes the edges dont really match)

    so yeah i kinda need tips big time =.= its my first time i was a vector virgin

    Oh, I see. Then instead of hiding the layers you can set them as a real low opacity just so you can see behind them while you are drawing your new shapes. Then after you're done, reset the opacity back to 100. Also, you can you the exlude overlapping paths (or maybe that is just for paths...not shape layers). I make shapes out of paths because I find that way a lot easier to keep organized and you can do the entire outline at once. You may want to try that for practice. It's same thing as shape layers and you'll be able to see everything without having to hide shapes

    i tried using paths but i didnt really got it. . .cause when i finished the path. . .nothin happend. . .or what else am i supposed tod o? (cause for example when you finish a shape it fills itself. . .)

    Nice, though it's anime. Where's the rich thick lines of ink?

    I'll send you a message so it's easier to communicate back and forth. :)
