*reserved slot*

Well, I've been trying my hand at .gifs lately, I was able to make this:


I placed three different frames for the tail then tweened each one without opacity. Made in Adobe ImageReady. A big thanks to all the tutorials here at A.Suki

Nice work, how long does it take you to trace one character? I know I usually take about 3 to 5 hours.

Intro: (coming soon)
Well, sum it up, I'm just another anime fan, who learned how to vector about a year ago. I've been making these things ever since. ...and quite frankly, I can't seem to stop. ><, I just really enjoy making them.

Ah, you finally started a thread here, good times! :)

I know too well what you mean when you say you cant stop making these.Tracing/Vectoring can be quite addictive to some. :heh:

The Rena one here is my sentimental favorite; It was the vector that got me interested in this after all. :)

Being a big fan of your works in the Nanoha section, I must say your other works are still quite impressive, from the colors and shadings to the details (especially impressed with Over the Rainbow, with the nice mix of blur effects giving it that much needed... uhm "dreamy" quality :D

solwyvern 2007-04-05 12:09

ps. I'll definitely make more Nanoha walls in the future, especially from StrikerS. Just need to look for something to work on...

It depends really ^^,
If it's a complete scan that doesn't require any re-drawing, I could finish it in a few hours.
If it's a very small image that requires detail and re-drawing, it could take weeks, and if i'm feeling lazy, a little over a month.
There are other factors like how big is the image you're tracing. If it's a full body vector or just a close-up of the face.

Always been a great fan of all of your works, so I'm glad you opened a thread because this way it's easier to keep a trace of them and even make comparisons - I think your style has grown up a lot throughout this time. :)

A good number of them have been my wallpapers, though my undoubt favourite is that of Rena. I was totally in love with Higurashi on that period so that wallpaper (both the dark both the white version) stayed up a lot on my pc. Lately I've ben using also the one of Kaede. And I remember that one of Anju. It was your first I think, right?

Also congrats for the last of Nagisa and Shizuma (and for Gin+Shinku), I hope to see other masterpieces from you soon ^^

Zero Shinohara 2007-04-10 17:37

Wow, 'sol. I see you have definitely improved a whole freaking lot. Your stuff was good the last time I checked, it's so freaking awesome now.

And I'll definitely have that Suigintou/Shinku wallpaper on my desktop this instant. Thanks so much for it :D

Daniel E. 2007-04-10 18:18

Hey Sol, I just noticed that some of your works are not listed here. Any reason in particular for not posting them here? :confused:

solwyvern 2007-04-11 07:11

Thanks, again , guys... I'm pretty much in a bad situation right now, but I'll try to work on a new one soon ^^

No reason, really. ...or I guess you could say I've posted the ones I favor more. :p
I'll try to post the other ones sometime^^

Another great vector thread.
All these works are great, I'm going to be lurking around here alot :>
Keep up the great work!

ShadowVlican 2007-04-12 23:52

excellent work!

i actually came across your shuffle (kaede) at 4chan

googling the credit at the bottom led me to this thread... little did i know it was made by someone here at animesuki!

solwyvern 2007-04-25 01:39

New Work in Progress!

I was a little reluctant at first, since I wasn't sure if it was possible to vector such a tiny screencap, and to add to that - trying to imitate Naru Nanao's artstyle.

Anyway,... so far so good..

bl4xb0x 2007-04-25 02:10

Very impressive array of work. Those vectors are top notch

Potatochobit 2007-04-25 03:14

I like the aria one alot. now make a guide!

AzureSaber 2007-04-29 01:14

I've been a fan of your work since I saw them on sites like Minitokyo and AnimePaper!!!!! I love your wallpapers!!!!!! I mostly love your Fate Testarossa wallpaper!!!!! I'm so jealous of your work!!!!! I wish I can do graphics like you!!!!!>_<

solwyvern 2007-04-29 12:01

Thanks, you've just saved my day. :)
I'll try and make a more formal guide soon, but for now, this will have to do:

How to use shape layers:

With shape layers you can keep all your pen paths in one layer so it's easier to organize^^
Is there any specific part you don't understand?

First set your pen to shapes

Then draw anything on the canvas. (or just place a point to open up a shape-layer)

Then click on the vector mask thumbnail:

Then change the pen setting back to paths:

Then click the vector mask again

Then start tracing with your pen^^ all the lines will remain in the shape layer^^

solwyvern 2007-04-29 12:19

Here's how I make my eyes, (really crappy tutorial again, please bear w/ it for now)

Before we begin..
It is assumed you have basic knowledge of vectoring and what it is.
We will make a basic eye vector, using only the Pen tool Shape-Layers

1 > original pic should be at the very top

2 > start with the black outline of the eye.

3 > Then 'under' the outline layer, fill in the most dominant color.

4 > Continue with the next color.

5 > Then do the same with any other 'eye effects' included in your original. Paying attention the where your layers should be placed. In this case, over the Eye color layers.

6 > Finish up by making the base. (The white of the eye). Under all the other layers

Once you have this, you can enhance it even more, by rasaterizing the layer then utilizing Blur, Dodge, and Burn. + playing with opacity and blending modes.

btw, put this all in one group for organization. (the little icon that looks like a folder) Then continue w/ the rest of the image.
