Here is a preview of my current project, some of you may recognize it as I have posted the original recently, which made me think, why do I like to remake my old art? Well, I have spent time learning how to use some great programs (Adobe Illustrator,Photoshop) and have found that I really enjoy creating a better representation of my art, lack of actual drawing ability is no longer a handicap!
Sometimes I also find that sometimes my tools are inhibiting my vision, a pen that starts to run out ink or not having the right color marker or the right kind of paper. If I was a better artist these things probably wouldn’t be an issue, but what I found with making vector art is that I don’t have these drawbacks and I can see a clearer vision of what I am looking for.
Sometimes I’m still not happy with what I made on the computer, but another thing I love about making vector art is that I can go back later and make minor changes without having to redraw the entire piece.
There is also the ability to animate my art better in vector format.
It is a little like cheating if you ask me, but in the end it gives me better satisfaction and I feel like it actually helps me draw better as well (I’ll get into that at another time).
