Johnny Depp - Vector by Atebitninja Johnny Depp - Vector by Atebitninja
I watched the New Johnny Depp/Tim Burton recently, Dark Shadows recently; got inspired to Vector up the main star of the film. I wanted to go 'super detailed' but at some point my computer just couldn't handle any more. I'm not entirely happy with the way some of the shapes ended up blending together, but just going between wireframe and preview mode took about 30 seconds... The entire portrait was drawn in Adobe Illustrator CS5 using the Gradient Mesh tool.

Tools:

Illustrator CS 5
Shape Tool
Gradient Mesh Tool

I started this one up about a week and a half ago. It's insomnia season for me, so it's kept me occupied... It sure beats watching infomercials at 3 in the morning :)

Thanks! It's all mesh'd, except the watermark I added at the end. That's the Type tool, converted to paths, then blended together.

If I had to guess, I'd say 40 hours of actually vectoring. If you including the time I spent staring and planning, I have no idea

These get more realistic with each new image. Amazing. Hard to tell it is not a photograph

Atebitninja Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
Thanks! I'll probably pull back a bit in the photo realism on the next one... This one went a little too over the top. It was fun tho

Oh my... This is vector art? Seriously??
The only spot I found that didn't look like a photograph is that strip of gray above the right (our left) shoulder...
This is insane! Congratulations! And thank you for sharing :la:
