White Beauty Vector by lenindcruz White Beauty Vector by lenindcruz
My first ever complete vector. Created completely in Inkscape. If you don't think this is good enough, it's my lack of expertise and not the fault of the beautiful Inkscape :D

My attempt was to make this look as real as possible. First I worked on the Lotus, thinking that would be the most difficult. When I came to the water, spent an hour staring at the screen and a few more surfing the net for some filter. Finally had to drawn it with hand :D

Time taken: appx 13 hours

Thankyou my friend. Well, most won't realise how important this image is to me. Inkscape is a 'true' vector program that is easy to us. Part of it also means that it doesn't have anything fancy like Illustrator's Gradient mesh. So, the above image made in Inkscape was a total pain in the ass being done only through gradients and no 'meshes'. :)

I will be putting up a shot of the outline view too in the 'details' image.

Haha see I just barely know what you mean. I haven't gotten the chance to start working with digital drawing yet.

Hm.... OK (will explain as short as possible)
Just what I mean is: mostly two kinds of digital art: Rastor (pixel based) and Vector (based on mathematical stuff the computer does to make paths and hence NO pixels).

You would use Photoshop, Painter, GIMP (which I use), etc to make Rastor art.
You would use Illustrator, CorelDraw, Freehand, Inkscape (which I use) to make Vector art.

So, in rastor, you have more freedom to just 'paint' stuff like how you would do on a canvas or MORE. But since it's pixel based, you have to plan your size right at the start so that you don't end up with something that might be too small in the end. :)

Since vector has just paths that depend on maths and stuff, and those paths can be given either a fill or stroke (not to mention a few 'effects' depending on your software) you have have no pixelation problem. So no matter how much you zoom in, you won't find pixels when viewing a true vector art :) The price? You have to break your head more to make something realistic, or something like the Mona Lisa in Vector :P

Now if you still don't understand me, no problem, meet our mutual friend: YOURgatewayTOporn! (hope I don't spoil you :P
