This is my very first attempt at a digital portrait using vectors. I had never used Adobe Illustrator before, but I will admit that it was a lot of fun to learn and to come up with a new design with such vivid colors. It made me wonder what else I can manage to do with vectors, so I will definitely be doing more, and I think it’s not bad at all for a first try. Maybe eventually I’ll be good enough to put up my own tutorials with some practice, because that’s what this is all about right? Practice and growth.
When I first began this work, I was pretty intimidated by the software, but fortunately it’s not that difficult once you know what each tool does. I would definitely recommend checking out your public library and seeing if they have any books about it, or a subscription to lynda.com, as they have many great tutorials on there that you can view that will help you if you’re just starting out with the software, or even if you’re familiar with it, you may learn something new!
