Create Stylish Vector Portraits

digitalartsonline.co.uk have excellent tutorials. Here’s one that shows you how to make a vector illustration from a camera image. It uses both Photoshop and Illustrator and is a good way to experience the strengths of either.

In this tutorial, Eelco van den Berg lets you behind the curtain to see how he creates his incredible vector portraits by turning a photo into a ‘poppy’ vector illustration.

It says that it could take 3-4 hours so you may want to make a cuppa.

Billy Blob

I’m very happy to introduce you to freelance animator and web designer Billy Blob. He’s been putting out interesting work for over 15 years and was one of my inspirations while I was at uni. HIs website is so different from all of these boring “themey” designs (like … ahem …  the one for this site). He’s an artist who adopted a digital medium, as opposed to a tech guy having a crack at being artsy.
