    Wow, excellent advice. I suppose I was a little naive before. I'll have a brain storm and see what I can come up with! Thanks B and Printdriver.

    good job for your first ever vector ...

    well done

      Cool, I remember doing this kind of stuff in class. Now see if you could do it without tracing. Muahahaha.


      • #4
        What did you trace? A drawing?


        • #5
          Good work! But I do not believe you: This is your first traced vector? You must be kidding!


          • #6
            If you traced someone else's vector, then I can't really say anything except... why bother?

              We had to trace Captain America one day as an exercise in using everything we'd learned in illustrator to make a vector drawing. I was very proud of the way mine turned out.

              So I understand the OPs pride in creating their first vector from the tools they've learned to use in the software.

              But it is a trace, so really nothing to critique.

                  yup this trace was just done as an exercise. I am still try to learn myself Illustrator

                    Show me the outline view.
                    This is technically similar to a logo. I'd be curious what your outline looks like and maybe we can give you some pointers on taking the tracing one step further in the production scheme.

                    Tracing for exercise is good. I think we all pretty much learned that way.

                      ^^^^ I'm with PD on this one. Your image looks good, but the people around here can make you better. Of course, that's why we're all keep pushing each other.

                        straight lines are easy! do something with some curves. really learn that pen tool!!

                        This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

                        there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

                          We had to trace the Offspring logo (see below) in school to practice using the pen/bezier tools. It was as good exercise to get you used to drawing curves.

                          Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time.
