Vector elephants

Converting another sketch

Elephants are super interesting animals, Even being the largest land mammal they can still peel the shell off a peanut with their trunk. It’s no wonder they are one of the most famous animals around. I felt inspired to sketch up a image of a elephant and converted it into a vector graphic.

The result

Pencil paper sketch

Converting Jessica’s sketch

Moving a old sketch of Jessica’s into mathematical art.

I was looking thru Jessica’s sketches when suddenly I noticed a nice and general shape of a bird, for whatever reason it tugged on my drawing instincts and screamed “Turn me into vector art”. So I decided to go ahead and trace it up as a vector image.

The result

Scanned pencil drawing

Vector version

Converting a pencil and paper sketch into vector art

One type of media I have almost no experience working in is, Vector Art. With Vector Art you are able to trace over your scanned in pencil and paper art to transform it into a image that is not in pixels but in mathematical form. Being in this mathematical form your image is then in essence re built every time you zoom in, so no matter the zoom your image will never appear to be made of individual pixels. So to start my journey into this form of media I decided to trace the sketch of Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter I posted previously.

The result

Drawn with pencil, scanned and hand traced in Inkscape
