View Full Version : I try vector graphics

I endeavored to make a imaginary portrait in CorelDraw using the freehand vector tool. I added some gradients there then imported it as a bitmap into PhotoPaint and added some details and the BG. Hope you like it! :)

Nice soft colors....Hmmmm..... i don't know why but looking at it looks like a mix of a Mattise and a Picasso drawing........:cool:

Here is a similar one I call Townie. I did this with felt tip pen and colored it in PhotoPaint after I scanned it in. Hope you like this one too!

Yes, the first one looks a bit like my mother did in the '20s :)
Like the use of gradient

Thank you Janet, Barry, jean, addphan, and Lady. The first one is all digital, I am experimenting with vectors as I mentioned. I usually use Painter and PhotoPaint to do my work. I have not use then newer freehand tool in CorelDraw that much yet. Your encouragement makes me want to experiment further!
