Blondie Mesh by frankwyte81 Blondie Mesh by frankwyte81
It's been a while since I posted anything or worked on a gradient mesh, so here's my latest gradient mesh piece. I'm stepping away from the detail mesh pieces and I'm back to the more simplified works. My work is still 100% vector and it's all gradient mesh except for the hair strands, the hair strands are from a vector brush.

Outline: [link]
Program: Illustrator CS6
Time: 17 hours

No probs, the only way I could find her in Google images was to do the "find similar images" and link to your ddA page, unfortunately "those types of websites" were the only ones I could find to link to in the comments

That's cool, I didn't know you could locate images by linking to certain pages, good to know. When I find images, I type in general stuff like, "lady in bathing suit or woman smiling" and I pick the ones I like and add them to my folder. I try to avoid the nudity, I want my kids to be able to view my work without exposing them all that other stuff. I have no problem with nudity, I think the human body is beautiful. But lately, I have been keeping it out of my art.

I honestly think you should go back to detailed meshes. Not full time, just occasionally. As you said before, it takes 100+ hours to create detailed hair, but as they say, quality over quantity.
I know you have a family you love to be with, and creating detailed meshes may take a hit on your family time, but instead of devoting 6-8 hours a day to doing these simplified meshes, use that same time daily to make detailed meshes as well. It may take longer, but the final result is always more rewarding in the end.
But anyways, I like this piece :D It just seems that the face shadow is a little off, but nice job!
Hopefully you take what I say into consideration, and have a nice Friday!

Thanks for taking out the time to write me. I hear your concerns and I value your opinions. But I'm not stepping away from detailed meshes because of my lack of devotion to my work, I'm stepping away because I've recently had some health problems. At the rate I was going, I wasn't going to be around long enough to create many more mesh. I have an addictive nature, when I start something it's hard for me to stop easily. I also have a tendency to lose focus if I put off something too long. So when I created those detailed mesh, I worked for too many hours at a time and if I didn't do that, I would've easily lost interest in the piece. Somedays, I was spending over 16-20 hours a day to work on those mesh, but that's what it took for me to complete one of them in a fairly reasonable timeframe. That put a lot strain on my body and yes it took away time from wife and kids. But that's how I work, that's how I had to work to keep focus.

Yes, I do love spending time with my family and 1.) that's who I'm looking out for here 2.) is my health. Plus I was doing those detailed vectors without getting paid, I just can't justify working 100 hours without receiving money for it anymore. I was just testing my skill, to see if I could achieve that high level of realism with the mesh tool. I answered that question and now I will take what I learned and continue with the more simplified mesh pieces. But when my health improves and if I find better ways to manage to manage my workflow, I will definitely consider doing the detailed mesh again.

As it appears you are branching out into ladies fashion, it's no wonder you have put the ultra meshes on hold :D

Seriously though, when you can put out work of this quality in 17 hours, your public can expect about six times as much art to appreciate - and that's got to be good news for all concerned.

All this, and a 4-0 start by the Falcons. Life must feel pretty sweet at the moment, Frank.

Yes sir, my Falcons are doing great. Life is going great, can't complain there. Yeah, you know me, I'm stepping onto fashion industry with QF Designs booty shorts, lol.

I actually timed myself creating this piece, the whole time, instead writing down the hours like I've done in the past. Hopefully, I can put out more work. At the time, I have other obligations, so time is a factor for me. But work will be produced in my spare time. Hopefully, one a week or a couple a month. I'm still trying to pace myself at the moment to get other areas in order.

It's the same here, Frank. I'm doing some other work at the moment which mean the vectoring is on hold. But as Arnie would say... "I'll be back!" :D
