Copenhagen mermaid by Flrmprtrix Copenhagen mermaid by Flrmprtrix
Not having any idea of what vector art is, or how to do it properly, i decided to give it a try.

now that i've investigated a bit, given that most of the vector art i've come across is incredibly smooth and clean, and this is an incredibly haphazard, sloppy sketch at best, i'm pretty sure i did it wrong.

i'm also assuming that a digital doodle of a bronze sculpture of a nude requires no maturity filter.

Update/edit: so, I'm now totally confused by the standards for "mature" content many people seem to have. Given that this is a based on a publicly displayed statue in Denmark inspired by a ballet that is in turn based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermiad," I really feel like this is not on a level with life-study nudes.

Well, you may have done it "wrong" (although I don't know, never having played with vectors), but it came out very right. It's a beautiful rendering of a beautiful statue. Are you getting feedback that it requires a maturity filter? That's ridiculous...

Thanks for commenting, and for adding me to your watchlist! I haven't played aroun with vector art since, though I hope to attempt a smoother piece next time.

And about the 'stache--that's only because I can't grow one of my own for the month of November.

Love your Macbeth witches, btw!

Ah, my daughter just told me about No-Shave-November, but now it's too late. My wife was saying I looked like a mad scientist, and my mother's coming for Thanksgiving, and I just had to...oh well. I didn't know. Next year... :)

I do see some vector art on here that makes use of "squiglly" lines rather than clean ones, so I don't think it's a hard-and-fast rule .. but I also know next to nothing about creating vector art! I can't believe you do all of this stuff on an ipad!! :head explodes:

The majority of vector art may be very smooth and clean, but this has a lovely, earthy feel to it. I don't think you did anything wrong at all. It looks...touchable, in a way. I love it.
