Vector Study: Anti-rust style by Joey-Zero Vector Study: Anti-rust style by Joey-Zero
This is a piece to practice tones and values...As you can see, the tones are laid in roughly, almost like blocking in colors and shapes in traditional paintings. It's far from refined, but I did this because A.) I haven't done jack sh*t in quite some time, and B.) I wanted to practice adjusting skin tones and natural shadows and stuff. The original photo reference was a lot paler, so I adjusted with warmer skin tones and such. The actress portrayed is the lovely Christina Ricci.

THE LIPS!

Are my favorite part. I absolutely love vector in general but I love just sitting and stairing at the different pieces of the drawing and watching how they all come together- you are very good at creating harmony in your pictures. I love her lips and eyes the best- my only qualm is if you hadn't told me it was Christina Ricci I wouldn't have known. :(

Thanks for the comment my friend! Yea, I coulda worked on the likeness a little more, but I just went with the quick blocky style. I might do some more pieces on her to get a better likeness.

one of the best vectors of a person I think I've ever seen. Those lips and the teeth are excellent, but the eye is even better!

This is excellent, and i'm going to fav it, because i'd want people to fav it if i'd made it. Ugh, need some sleep before I comment.

The lips are stunning, as are the eyes and hair. If I had any criticisms (trying to be constructive here) i'd say that I, personally, prefer a flatter shading for skin tones, when dealing with vector - I can totally see what you're going for, but I would prefer a simpler shading system for the skin. That's just a personal preference, however, and it's still a fantastic vector :)

Thanks a lot for the +fav. I agree on the comment, If I were to refine this more, I would probably eliminate some of the values and work on a smoother transition...This is almost like working in the rougher values and toning them down as you polish in traditional paintings.

Gorgeous vector. I am very impressed at your detailed shading and the style used. Illustrator, Photoshop, or other?

Someday, I hope my vectors can be this good. :)
