I've been admiring vector art for a while so I took a stab at it. I'm no where near done with it, but I think it looks decent.

Here's an example of a vectorized image of Jack Nicholson, for those who don't know exactly what vector art is.

original (http://www.moltovivo.net/tutorials/vexeltut/tutpic.jpg)

vectorized (http://www.moltovivo.net/tutorials/vexeltut/tutstep140.jpg)

The tut (http://www.moltovivo.net/tutorials/vexeltut/vexeltut.html) says to 'posterize' your image, and here's (http://www.eacustomcovers.com/_misc/troyposterize.png) my posterized result with my image. Then you base your work off that.

I did not do the hair, jersey or facemask yet, but this (http://www.eacustomcovers.com/_misc/troyvector.png) is what I have so far.

Idealy, I'd say you'd use a head shot of someone, might be a tad easier. So far, unfinished mind you, the psd has roughly 560+ layers. I did the legs/arms yesterday and the helmet/face/gloves today. I think the the 'today' work came out great, the yesterday work.. eh.. needs more work. :D

Lemme know whatcha think..

I think its cool but I dont understand what you are going for? Like a cartoon look?

I believe that's the idea somewhat behind it, it just gives it a different look to the image; cartoon like.

Yeah, I suppose cartoonish. I dunno. I see it alot and tried to do one. :dunno:

I updated the image, I did some work on the sleeve stripes.. almost time to do the jersey.. not lookin foward to that. Unless I can figure out an easier way of replicating the thousands of mesh holes. :banging:

Should be done tonight.. I think I have about 9 hours total in this, lol.. and I'm gonna redo the arms/legs.
