New ID - Ekster Vector by ekster New ID - Ekster Vector by ekster
Fun with sepia tones and well... just fun in general ;P

It's a fairly quick piece, and I believe this is my first attempt at a self portrait and it turned out alright, so I'm happy.

Anyways, new ID for a new year. Yayness!

Very, very nice...BRAVO!!! I love the sepia tones, and the overall look of the whole piece. Your vectors are awesome, and stand out to me. I love the smoothness of this one, and all of them. I love how you mostly used sepia tones, but a little red flair on his tie and on the signature....really stands out nicley. You are an amazing artist....

I cannot believe that your "tools of the trade" software programs used are only photoshop and illustrator CS....your stuff's awesomeand I would have thought that you would've used some other, more complex software program(s)?

I admire vector art a lot, so I'll be checking out your gallery a lot more, and also your tutorials, if you did any...I tried one time with a tutorial of how to make a vector in photoshop (not a true vector, but the look of one) using the pen tool, but it wasn't much help, because I wasn't that familiar with the tool....I had never had to use it before, but I will be trying more....your stuff inspires me!!!

Aww you are so very sweet :aww: Thank you so very much once more! :)
This particular piece was a lot of fun to do mostly because of the color experimentation. There's a lot of other good vector artists on here that I truly admire as well, it really is amazing how the simplest of tools and functions can build upon each other to make some amazing stuff. Even for me, I still have a looong ways to go, but growth is a good thing. And thank you again for the wonderful support! :hug:

Thats great, you're a stylish man with trendy skills!

I guess removing the pen and the pen's idea bubbles will make it appear more clean.

Yeah, I agree it would have a more clean look without the pen and bubble, but I just felt like having the ID piece to be a little "sillier" than usual :D

Really cool one. Only I didn't get to meet the real person behind the piece. Oh well.

Later. Watch Sepet or The third generation if you can.

I can't picture a photo of you as being really you.
I think of you in terms of vector,
so this is how I've always pictured you!
