Well itís that time of the month again.. I've been working with this on-and-off for the past 4 weeks.

This is based on a stock photo by ~tragicmistress. The posing really caught my eye and was screaming to be vector-ized :D (Big Grin) I love the attitude and mood she conveys.

A lot of my pieces of late have consisted of lotsa geometrics, hard lines and stuff...I was getting much-o bored with it. I played around with some brushes and gradients, to give it more of an Ďorganicí, grunge-y feel. I like how it has progressed.

Comments/criticisms MOST welcome :D (Big Grin)

I like the gradients you used on her face and eye for this. I have alsway liked the simpler images that still communicated the same message. Less is more
ch-peralta Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2003
Love the colours of this composition
mikstar Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2003
Amazing detail.

its just so freeking messy and grungy and all over the place, but it works incredibly well... a treat for the eyes... the girl looks great too, I LOVE her hair!
weja Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2003
It's obvious alot of time went into this piece, and the results are nothing short of marvelous. All the details... its simply breathtaking. If you used illustrator, double kudos to you-- I hate that program. It makes me wanna break things. x_x

o_o I love the style this is done in. All the details and splatters look nice, and I like the vector graphics. You did this in Illustrator? I've never really gotten the hang of that program, though I'd like to learn to use it. x.x

Outstanding quality man. I like vector art but rarely find work that strikes me like this does. The color and the subtelties you have added here are awesome.

Keep up the good work. :) (Smile)
kawzkaos Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2003
Definetly the type of quality I would expect to see on a CD cover for some trip - hop, techno band traversing the globe. I like the mistress's expression as well, and though that much is given to her, I can tell a lot of work was put into the rest of the image. I can't stand making a picture if it takes more than one sitting to complete it. Four weeks? My head would detach and leak oil.

Nocely done. i love the use of curved lines... and the eye. yes... i love the eye XD

BluBlu, u know ur stuff! i can't see the "grunge" in it, or i think the black is somewhat grungy, but i love it, i honestly love it. And i Admire u for ur skillz. i bet u put a lot of work into this piece, and the result is the more powerful! the typo, style, design Point Right Perfect - as far as i can judge such things with my humble knowledge ;) (Wink)

I like it cos there are lot of other elements beside the potrait.
a quite colorful and eye-catching vector work Thumbs Up
lady-iguana Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2003
I just love the color of her hair! Wonderful (although I don't think that I will have ever such a haircolor! ;) (Wink) ) The gruncy style really fits the girl and it is nice to see you experimenting with different styles. I really like those pink/purple/ white colors in the background. If it was up to me, there would be more of it like that in the back :P (Lick) .
Well done,... this could be a nice cd-cover or something! :) (Smile)

Oooh! Nice rendition of the piece! (I don't know how the original looks like, but this is great!) I'm curious to know if you used Photoshop or Illustrator for the vector art. Would like to learn from the pro :D (Big Grin)

*Kayne wishes he knew how to do funky vector stuff too...*
