Punky Rainbow Dash by FirestormDangerDash Punky Rainbow Dash by FirestormDangerDash
:iconyouareplz::iconallowedplz:

Well. . . first ever vector. Actually first ever anything art related. :iconrainbowdashdowantplz:

Had issue after issue. Like Photoshop changed my pen tool every click... That was fun. I managed to be alright with how it turned out, all things considered. It is simple by vector standards as to not overwhelm myself, yet.

After increasing the size I spotted errors that were more complicated then one might think, small as they were. However they were covered up nicely enough i think.

Sweeet, thanks so much! I am terribly slow at getting the next vector done. *hint* And somehow I think it is coming out worse then this one. :icondashshrugplz: Learning is magic! :iconrainbowdashderpplz:

Oh btw, Aussie accent is best accent! And country. Also, Denial-is-Tragic is a clever name. And I am not even sure how!

Nice vector! A whole lot better than my first attempt XD There's only a few things I noticed that could be improved a bit. The line at the bottom of her chin and the line inside her ear should come to more of a point at the end, the thickness of the line for her back varies in thickness a little, and her eyebrows/lashes vary in thickness a bit too. I might be nit picking a bit though, so sorry if i am >_< All in all it's a pretty good vector, keep practicing :D

I have a question though, did you vector the eye lashes/lids as one piece for each eye?

FirestormDangerDash Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012
Lol you spotted all the problems I saw and faced. I tried to stay as close to the original image I was using but the ear part was what I started of on, so I only started improving from there, same for the chin. xP It was the stroking of the hair i started learning instead of trying to copy. x3

My vectoring ability suffered near the edges of the picture because my vectoring lines started going off the image and the only way I could see them, let alone click them, was to zoom super far out. Thus inaccuracy was bound to happen. I trimmed a good part of the picture cause of that.

Now besides Photoshop hating me, her eyelashes were the hardest thing for me. And since it was my last thing I sped up a bit. After I enlarged the pic I noticed loop holes in them, reediting them was a pain so they got ruined more so. Now to your question, yes. And no. I planned to do both together as a whole but only did the right (you right) eyelash/lid/brow as one whole. The other side was in parts, at least for the eyelashes. Now I did that for both experimentation and for use in doing some layering tricks. Perhaps next one I will do it all in parts so I can focus on shape easier. :icondashshrugplz:

Thank you for pointing those flaws out however. Because I can only get better from learning... Or something like that. :iconponyswagplz:

ok, the reason I asked about the eye lids/lashes is because if you look at the first eyelash from the right (on the right eye), you can see that the edge of her eye lid doesn't exactly line up correctly. When you're making a vector you want to use layering and overlapping to your advantage as much possible. So for her eyes, as an example, I would vector her eyebrow, eye lid, and each eye lash separately, and have them over lap so that the lines look smooth and have the correct thickness. As for the problems ran into with photoshop, I can't really offer any help because I use inkscape D: but do some searching, I'm sure you could find fixes to your problems. But keep at it, it'll become easier as you do more vectors. Can't wait to see your next one :D

Well I think my next one will be unique. AND I am not going to look to learn otherwise. :iconponyswagplz:

Just as a heads up for you though, no matter how much I looked I couldn't get a unblurry screenshot. And yes I was the one to take the screenshot. So this next picture will teach me about getting better at eyeing images to more of an extreme.

Your faithful student,

Twilight Sparkle
