sometimes i vector, in english

it's true, sometimes i think, speak, type, and vector in english. it's rare i know. and i apologize but i'm a poor student and so my japanese, and korean, are both, most likely, very wrong. moshiwakearimasen. yes, that was prolly wrong. and i often type how i speak, so shitsureshimasu. anywhoodles... recently i vectored. i'm not sure if any of my friends understand my love of vector. it's like a perfect art. if there ever were such a thing. if you want to learn all the technical stuff you're in the wrong place. all i can tell you is to google it if you don't know the truth that is vector. it is not, however, just flash and/or animation. it can be photo realistic, and very cartoonish. it can mock humanity or be at one with it. it can be modern or classic. but what it always is, it is infinite. it can be infinitely resized without loss of perfection. so here i give a few examples

 this is the resized and trimmed gackt that i have for sale as a print on my DA page.
 this is the original size. because i vectored this with layer shapes via the pen tool in photoshop i was able to make it very large, and print worthy, with not quality loss. other than that at 20in X 30in you can probably see all my mistakes. but i'm not sure anyone but me will buy a print of it anyway. so :P it is however water marked. cause i worked my butt off doing this and i'm not giving it away.
 here is an up close and personal vector of a toy frog. you can see the clean lines and exact placement. it's being vectored in photoshop tho, whose main purpose is raster so there may be some pixelization as this is a Work-in-Progress snap shot.
 this ism sadly, as far as i've gotten with this vector. having my kids home everyday doesn't leave the the dedication to finish this as well as i'd like. at this point i prolly have 13-14 hours invested in a simple sign.
 i forget how long this took, or even if it was in adobe illustrator or photoshop, but prolly AI as the original files are lost. AI has a habit of crapping out on me and corrupting my files.
i think this was ai as well. the raster looking sun in the background was made with a tool thingy in ai. i don't recall which as i made this 3 or 4 years ago.

anyway you can see the versatility of my beloved vector. altho i don't make anything photo-realistic i know it's around...

then there's the off the wall stuff...

anyway, i hope i have inspired some love for vector, maybe a little for Gackt-sama, but mostly i hope you see art, all art, in a new way. jyanne!
