Illustrator tutorial 2 by masseva Illustrator tutorial 2 by masseva
not really a tutorial, more like an explanation how a vector drawing is layered/detailed (or at least how i do it, most of the time).
it was something i had to to for work. i was pressed for time, on top of having tendon inflammation on both hands, so it's not very good, poorly detailed and doesn't do justice to the original stock photo: [link]
download for full size.

A question: for the final effect, have you used overlap of more level?
Beautiful job!

thank you. i'm glad you find it helpful.

i'm just not sure if i understand your question? the picture (the final one - first on the left) is built up by stacking up the different layers on top of one another - the second on the left is the base and the others simply go on top of one another. no opacity or such was used on this and the layers you see is all there is to it.

thank you for the kind wish, Mario.

this one took around 5 hours - maybe less, maybe more, i didn't do it in one day, so it's difficult to tell. maybe i would do more if i was doing it for myself and not work. or maybe it would take less if my hands didn't hurt. who knows? :)
