Biggest vector I have ever made. Roughly 70 layers, lots of paths, gradients etc.
This is my contest entry for [link]

This pictures "my evolution towards vector", which means:
It shows how I discovered vector art and how the pen tool works.
I started drawing with pencil (E)
Then I learned traditional inking with East-Indian ink (vo)
After that I discovered more media, paint, ballpoint pens (lu)
And soon I discovered Photoshop. I loved that program and it took a while for me to look further. (ti)
I wanted to learn how to use the pen tool. I told a friend and he said "if you want to learn how to use the pen tool, get Illustrator, that program is built around it". So I did. That is where the vectoring started. (on)

I depicted my early use of photoshop as making a simple grass-field with an imitation of the grass-brush. The Illustrator part is like a sea of flow and gradients and smooth lines.

I actually own all the tools on this picture. I took pictures of them as reference to vector them. The interface of Illustrator and Photoshop are 100% vectored. (by me)
Yes, even for the swatches, it took much effort.

I'm still in between "vo" and "lu". But I love pencil more than ink or other media...
Amazing vector, it's outstanding! Good job!

whoa... to think that you even vectored the interfaces... there's so much detail in their icons to recreate that I imagine that has taken ages to finish. :eyepopping:
I'm very impressed by your work on the shading of the tools, ink pot and paint tube. they look incredibly realistic! only their bold outline takes away from the realism, though the effect is least apparent with the acrylic paint. I could keep staring at that one for its awesomeness. :)

I just love all the little details that are put into this, like the labels on the acrylic paint tube. That, and the fact that this is a vector, makes this a well deserved DD.
