Vector Tutorial by godric21ph Vector Tutorial by godric21ph
view the tutorial : http://www.vectorportraits.com

This is a step-by-step guide on creating your own vector portraits using Photoshop. The method discussed is the one that I have been using, so if you like my vectors (they're not that bad :) ) this is how I did them. Site also features a gallery so you can upload a vector that you finished after reading the tutorial.

I really hope that this tutorial could help those who want to start with vectoring photos. My goal is to at least give you an idea on how to make one.

This is my very first tutorial so if any suggestions on how I can improve it is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I use CORELDRAW for most of my Vectors and Page layouts but I rarely do manually tracing.

I'm so glad that You've provided a tutorial that's easy to follow... Even for COREL users.


Thanks so much and may you have success on your future projects.

This is a great tutorial, but how in the world do you get those perfect, flawless curves using the pen tool? Mine turn out choppy, and I've tried so many methods to make them like yours.

is this tutorial originally made by you?

if yes, I wonder if you mind
this [link]

he posted and claimed that he originally made that vector art.
I know he didn't say about any tutorial in the description (maybe he changed it), but I swear he mentioned (about a week ago) that he was inspired by 'tutorial-which-the exact link-he-had-forgotten'

and when I tried to remind him to at least give some credits by mention the link,
he said he just found the picture, not in ur tutorial,
and trace it, so he refused to give any credits.

I just want you to know,
because you have the right to ask credit.
But if you don't mind if people don't link back to you tutorial,
just ignore me :)

I'm sorry to bother you, but I highly respect any designing ethics, include about giving credits =p

First of all I think you did a good job on this tutorial. I liked the turnout. One thing I might suggest is to make the instruction type clearer to read. For instance make it bold white with no stroke where its on dark areas and bold black without stroke on white or lighter areas. Good job though.
