Youtube video creating the hair for this piece:…
Mesh Outline:

I saw this original image on the internet about 6 months ago. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon Stefan's gallery on DA. I looked through his gallery and lo and behold, there was that beautiful image. I got permission from Stefan to use it and the rest was time and patience. I changed up a few things on my vector to set it apart from the original photo. I changed the hair somewhat and I didn't add all the moles from the original image (plus a few other things). People ask me why don't I customize my work, but this image was already great, so I didn't feel the need to change up much.

Original photographer: :iconstefangrosjean: Photo used with permission!!!
Original photo:
Model: Mel from the Suicide Girls

Program: Illustrator CS5 & CS6 (I used both programs because my CS6 has been getting an error that boots me out of the program quite often, it's annoying)
Tools Used: Gradient mesh tool, pen tool, vector brushes, 100% vector
Time: 40 hours
No tormentors where used in the creation of this vector!!!

Wow. Amazing vector work. I just started using vector and I'm a long way from this.
Do you do tutorials or know of any tutorials out there that teach this level of vector realism?
Thanks and awesome job.
