I spent all day working on this vector. While I’m not entirely happy with it from the waist down, I think it’s definately my best attempt at a human.
Click on the image for the full view. I linked it to Deviantart, but you can view it in my portfolio as well.
I’m in love with the character Joan (and the actress who plays her, Christina Hendricks) on Mad Men. If I could look that hot and curvy at a size 14, I would be eating chocolate cake for every meal of the day. Seriously, I would turn lesbian in a heartbeat for her. So gorgeous.
I can never get body proportions correct, so I thought she would be the perfect model for a sketch since her proportions are almost unrealistic. I don’t think I nailed it, but I’m getting better. As long as I could stick to this style for a few more vectors, I’ll probably get it down.
Perhaps I will vector the other women of Mad Men as well. Only two other female characters are prominent, but I suppose I’ll be sick of it by then anyway.
That looks seriously awesome! I don’t watch Mad Men, nor do I know who she is so i can’t compare the vector and actual girl, but it looks awesome!
I work as a cashier at a grocery store :P I thought I had mentioned it in my blog, but looking back I saw I didn’t.. oops :P Some of the produce items don’t have stickers, so we need to remember the codes so we can punch them in for the prices.
& I am trying to stay as optimistic about this, I just wish I could like.. fast forward to later in life to see if it’s actually going to work out, or if it’s a waste of time.
I agree with Meredith. I don’t know who she is, so I can’t compare it, but it looks pretty sveet.
WHOA AWESOME LAYOUT! i was totally set back when i opened your site!
you’re real good at vectors (:
i’m not too fond of touchscreens either. i mean, i love my ipod touch, but i hate typing on it :P
WOW! This a seriously impressive sight. Everything looks amazing! Those vectors in your portfolio are outstanding. :) Thank you so much for the comment! It means a lot. I don’t like Ke$ha that much either, but I was running out of ideas of who to put in my layout. Ke$ha is quite trashy to me.
Mhm…don’t watch Mad Men. I barely watch television, accept for Degrassi, If You Really Knew Me, and Jersey Shore. The Jersey Shore cast members are sort of a joke. And RIDICULOUSLY tanned.
This is great! I LOVE Mad Men and I love Joan’s character. Christina does an amazing job portraying that time and the image. I think she’s awesome and beautiful! I’m impressed, good job!
Ooh, she’s my favorite too! This is an unbelievably accurate vector of her, how’d you even do this?! You’ve got more talent than Santa Clause has elves. (Sorry, I’m terrible at analogies). Seriously though, I love this site and Atomic Affliction, they’re where I get my daily dose of wow.
Damn, I’m jealous. I haven’t made vectors in a long time, I used to make them a lot! Yours looks really good. :)
And yeah, haha they’re always showing the best parts in trailers and we end up sleeping through the movie. My friend watched it not too long ago and deemed it ‘boring.’
oh wow thanks! i’m glad you like the layout, we’re clearly in love with yours!! :D
Hi Gabi! Thanks for coming by my site. Haha, thank you for complimenting my site name (: Hehe. One of my friend complained that it’s too long hahha but I like how it sounds. And you have a GREAT site name too!
I checked out your vector and it’s really gorgeous. Your shadings are really smooth and I’m loving the line-art. I think with a teeny pearl ear stud will make her even prettier! Heheh but that’s just my input (:
I wish I can vector people, one day.
I know it’s not relevant to the blog or etc but your site is gorgoues, and the portfolio as well :). You’re very talented.
The vector is amazing! I Favorited it on DeviantART. I LOVE Christina Hendrick, she’s so pretty. And the clothes she wears on mad men, suit her so much. She should have lived in the 60s LOL. I don’t watch Mad men, just watch it when it’s on, but I do love how she acts.
I have no idea! Haha, but I think the long drive is worth it! :D
Everybody has been saying that lately, LOL. Not to brag or anything, I’m not from Dubai anyway I’m from Sharjah. The city next to it. You should! It’s great ;) .
I do love old people as well, and the stories they tell. Yet, when I sit with them I can’t help but get the feeling that they want to be young again, and the memories from it. It seems like they’re desperate, I don’t want to reach that stage really.
Being an adult scares me. I’m glad i’m 4 years away from it. The responsibilities that come with it, is just too much to handle for me.
So, I just want to start by saying your layout is absolutely amazing! I love, love love it :) So creative!
I have no idea who the original woman is, but that vector is reaaaally good! You have some talent ;D
Usually I always start watching shows after they have done multiple seasons or when they’re already done lols. I’m going to start watching it this weekend!
I WISH I WAS THAT GOOD A VECTORS. I fail, miserably. That might actually be an understatement lols.
Christina Hendricks is very pretty. I’m in love with her hair color. Not a lot of people can pull it off, but she wears it well.
Thank you. I usually make bright layouts but I thought that I should go for a softer look this time.
I finished reading The Great Gatsby. It’s actually really interesting. There’s a lot of infidelity going on in the book. O_O
AWESOME VECTOR. I used to do vectors all the time but now I’m too lazy to do vectors or digital illustrations.
I love how you did the shading.
Very nice vector! I love the detail in the jewelry and purse. :)
Your layout is so cool. You are crazy good at vectoring. I wish I could draw :P
Definitely watch AVPM. I’m the same way with you, I get bored with youtube vids really really easy (lol short attention span) but trust me, it’s worth it! Especially for an HP fan.
Hm yeah, my SOTM is probably geared more towards resource/content sites, but if you put some up then I’d love for you to enter!
Best. bring your kid to work job. EVER. that would be so cool to go to work with your police officer dad! My job is actually pretty boring, just filing and whatnot. But hey, money is money is money. :P
I don’t watch Mad Men, probably because I’ve never taken an interest in it. Now that I’m inspired, I’m going to watch at least one episode?
I don’t make vectors either, because I’ve always failed at it. I used to be so silly that I used Paint to try creating vectors! I know it’s possible, but yeah, it’s tough. It needs effort.
I think you’ve done it perfectly. The entire body looks as fine. I get what you mean by proportions. Forget about drawing, my own body’s not in proportion. Ha ha. =D
Oh thanks a lot! I usually put a quote in articles a lot in school, and everyone seems to like it. I don’t do it online though, I don’t know why. :O I like the Facebook article too. I’ve always wanted to write the pros and cons of a social networking site like Myspace, Orkut, Facebook etc. Now it’s not a dream anymore. :)
I love food too. My usual enjoying time is when I’m eating snacks in front of TV. Oh, you watch Courage the Cowardly Dog too? I LOVE THAT SHOW. Me and Courage have so much in common you know.
Yep, 3 books at the same time. Naw naw, not school related. That’s even better. I hate study related material.. I mean, how can you read them like novels?
That vector is amazing! I wish I was good at vectors. You did a very fantastic job.
I have never heard of Mad Men before. What’s it about?
I hate changing schools. It is scary for me. I get freaked out about it very easily. You would think it would be easy for me because I’ve changed schools so many times, but I always have trouble adjusting.
Thank you for the compliments on my pictures :D
I’ve attempted to make a vector buuuuuuuut it didn’t go well so that’s amazing that you even got to the stage you’re at. I love your layout. It’s a little depressing but amazing nonetheless.
I adore this<33. Where did you learn to make a vector and what program do you use?
