Update: Youtube Video showing my layers one by one…

Program: Illustrator CS6, 100% vector
Tools Used: Gradient mesh tool, pen tool, vector brush, blur tool
Time: Completed over a two week period, 100+ hours
No tormentors where used in the creation of this vector!!!

I finally got this one completed. For those who say my work look like photos, but the hair wasn't on par with the face. Well, I went a step further to try and make the hair look better. You wanted more realistic hair, well you got it. 95% of the hair in this vector was created by the gradient mesh. It was no easy task, but I got it done, but these vectors are wearing me out, lol. I love the challenges people, but I think this will be my last detailed gradient mesh.

The body has a slight blur on it. The background has no blurs, it was scattered colors using the mesh tool, it gave a nice blur effect. Enjoy.

Look Into My Eyes Vector by ~frankwyte81 "is just such great quality and so incredible it's hard to believe it's not a photograph," says the suggester, and I couldn't agree more. The time and patience that goes into a piece like this is phenomenal! Also suggested by ~Argandia ( Suggested by TinyButton and Featured by DomiSM )

Hey I love your work, and your progression is just unbelievable. :) I just have a quick question. When you created this piece everything was in pieces and some didn't even follow the contour of the face. Ie. the left eye was just a rectangle. In previous works of yours you created the whole face in one mesh. I was wondering which technique would you recommend and why?

Thanks in advance

Looks greater than great! I'm just wondering; you say that 95% of the hair is done with gradient meshing, but what about the other 5%?

The other 5% I used a vector brush for hair strands. I normally use mostly brushes on hair, but for this piece, not as many strands of hair were needed.

This is awesome.

Simply the best vector face here on dA. I had to look at the mesh to really believe this is not a photograph. 

I bow to your skills. :clap:
