Have you done any vector tutorials? If not, will you? I have searched around for some and most of them are not very helpful, most seem to use sketches that are already gorgeous to begin with, not messy sketches that turn into something stunning. You seem to make some messy sketches and somehow turn them into gorgeous works of art. I'm dying to learn...
Thank you! <3 ^^ No I havnt made any tutorials regarding vectoring yet. I think the people you’re referring to are probably doing one of a few things different to me. They are starting their image directly in Illustrator and ‘sketching’ it there so the lines look cleaner, they are possibly using a tablet (I use a mouse) so their sketch lines are cleaner, or they drew on paper first and then scanned and had the program auto ‘trace’ the lines of the image :). OR they’re just better than me with freehand work xD.
When I do sketches I do them in photoshop with my mouse and the paintbrush tool. I don’t have any need to specifically be neat and tidy at that point as i’m basically just roughing out an *idea* for myself so I dont want to waste time putting too much detail/time in to it yet :).
I’ve not looked at many tutorials for vectoring so i’m unsure how different my actual process in illustrator is to other people. I’d be happy to record my basic process with screencaps next time i’m working on something though :).
