So for a while I've been looking into the idea of vectorising an image, a personal project or something to just keep my claws sharp, as it were... and to fill my downtime. I've seen a nice few vectorised cars on the net, and i always liked the way they turned out. Figured mine would never turn put looking like that, but...fortune favours the brave. Very much a work in progress, about 4 hours(ish) work here.

So, without further ado, comments and critique please?

EDIT: I understand there's a gap between the 2 parts, and I'll rectify that near the end.

Any more and that'll be epic. I suck at vector, you know, although I'm quite interested in making one.

Hhaha. It's pretty much..break the car down into sections, draw them out as shapes, then add more shapes on top for shadows, highlights and extrusions. Just do what you think will make it look how it's supposed to look. Worked a bit more on the hood last night. Will update later on.

Ah, well. I actually started doing that. But never bothered to spend so much time making it look as good as that. Guess I should probably try it, lol.

It's easier than it's looks, honestly... you can use some artistic licence to compensate for the style, and for reflections from the background.

Not as such. Unless you're some kind of machine, you'll never get a photo-realistic vector image made by hand. But you can get a really neat style with as much or little detail as you like. More detail needs more time, but you get more out of it... basically I just lay on the detail until I think it looks good without 'trying' to be photo-realistic.

But could you take an old 320x240 pixelated picture and make it look somewhat clear at 640x480 for example?

Depends on the level of detail you'd want, but yeah. One you got the amount of detail you wanted into the 240,320 image you could make it 1680,1050 if you really wanted.

Its pretty much nice. Very much nice try. I liked the detail you have put into it but still you can add a lot more detail into what you have already done. Seriously.

Anyway. As far as it goes it will be better I think. So yeah, Good Luck with your project or 'getting your claws sharp'.

Nicely done.

I've been vectoring for some time, ain't the easiest task to do, but it is simply easy if you know Photoshop. I've done a car once, never turned into the way I wanted, but I tried. And yes, you can make a vector style picture hi-def (Like a 320x240 to a 1650x1050). I don't know how to do it, but I think Llama did something like this a while back, something to do with the .eps format... Don't know how to do it exactly.

I've seen people even vector actual people (Takes a while to do it), and they even show how they do it in PS. Good stuff nonetheless.

I hate Photoshop. Still got it but I'm not installing it on my new XP Installation. I preferred Fireworks before fricken Adobe took it out. I hate Adobe and all Adobe products.

Why do you hate it?

I love all of Adobe's products. The main ones are Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator (New to it, sort of, but it's a great tool) etc.

Assuming Fireworks is your tool you are great at using, maybe that's the reason why you weren't so great at Adobe Products (Specifically pointing to Photoshop)? I mean, Photoshop has so many features, Fireworks has so less (I've only used Fireworks 8, so I don't know if it is different now).

But to be honest, learn these tools, you will immediately change your opinion on it, because if you are a web designer, Dreamweaver is like your best bud, if you know how to use it well.
