February by GoblinQueeen February by GoblinQueeen
*Note: Not Vector Art. See media description*

Second of a 12 piece series that will become the 2005 Retro Girl Calender. So much pink... Cliche as it is, Valentine's had to be the theme I used for February, there's just no getting around it and being the classic Hollywood buff that I am, I had to make her a starlette in her dressing room looking over all of the gifts sent by adoring fans.

This piece is dedicated to and , the wonderful people who watch me who have their birthdays in the month of February.

Medium: Original sketch drawn over in Photoshop with the pen tool, not vectors since the lines and shapes rasterize. It is similar process, but by devart definitions, anything that rasterizes is not vector art. Details added with brush tool.

This picture is so sweet and simple; the cards, the chocolate, and the ring are all nicely placed and don't crowd the picture at all. This would makes a great Valetine's Day shirt. :giggle:

oh... i beg to differ. :) i do believe it is a vector image, photoshop does vectors, but does not have the capacity to re-render everthing like flash or illustrator does. it doesnt change the fact that it is indeed a vector. as long as it stays as an .eps file, you'll retain the vector info, and you can increase the size as much as you want without rasterizing ( i dont mean zooming in, i mean resizing it)
if you have time, watch this tutorial, itll show you that it really is a vector. quite long, but very good tutorial.

i know they say " Images created in raster-based programs or images that have been filtered to resemble vector-based art should not be placed here." but really..... they dont mean photoshop vectors im sure theyre talking about people who simulate vectors by using the brush tool and just cell shading.

Not as far as I know. This was done with an older version of Photoshop and filling paths. The newer version has vector masks, but this was not created with those and if I try to enlarge any portion within the pdf, it does indeed loose quality, so I just abide by the rules as set forth.
