Just one of the quick vector practices I'm making in Illustrator. Will be making…12? I want to be awesome at Illustrator. :)

Original sketch on left, vector on the right. Horses sleep while standing…so i thought, would RD drool standing? haha

Time: 1.5 hours (took waaaay too much time)

Sketch Video: [link] I didn't know I recorded that, enjoy.

She does, but would happen if she is caught day dreaming on the ground? horses sleep while standing, so I thought this might happen.

so how do you make the lines so smooth?

It's Adobe Illustrator. The lines are mathematically created to make a curved line from point to point, it's called Vectors. What's great is that I can make it any size I want. From 1 mm tall to 1 mile tall. That may help explain why a lot of Vector pony art you see on DA is huge!!!

Thanks, I just finished up Twilight and Fluttershy. Took about an hour for each one. But man! It is so nice the way I make lines in Illustrator. I simply draw them with my tablet. And make the sharp points by simply using the eraser. So awesome.

Indeed, when first starting out on illustrator, it takes ages to draw anything.

what's vectoring?
Reply
:icontsitra360:
Tsitra360 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
Its where lines and fill colors are represented by actual math. See all those dots and lines? THey are generated using math. What that means is that I can make this 5" tall, 20" tall…..5 miles tall!!! Basically I can scale vectors to any size I want since everything is scaled up by math, loosing no detail and keeping everything sharp.

youtube's visual functions are lagging for me. firefox probably needs to be updated, or my computer's getting old, because all animations are lagging. just not as bad as youtube.

It isn't youtube. Its the actual video itself with no flash. When you get to the DA leaving page, just right click the link and Save As.
