Youtube video creating the hair for this piece: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqVT2J…
Mesh Outline: fav.me/d5rnl2u

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: fav.me/d40y05d
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.

she said in her bio that she was picked on as a kid... those kids that did it must have been jealous of her beauty

Preciate it. Actually, it was a little less than 40 hours, I usually round when I keep time. But his piece flowed together nicely . After I did the work on the face, everything else came together pretty easily.

Thanks. A lot of time goes into picking up these those small details like the veins in the eyes. So this piece is 100 % vector, 0 % raster. All the work in my gallery comes from blood, sweat and tears of trial and error from using the gradient mesh tool.
