It's not that I doubt you -- no, not at all, because I have a copy of the original, so it's clearly a vector -- but, damn, is that really Illustrator? O.O This is why I will never be a real artist. No patience to figure out how the hell to make that software do my bidding. >.< Also, it's a small thing, but you win my respect for leaving his signature on it. Excellent job, a perfect tribute.

Patience is a virtue - especially when you're dealing with Illustrator. People want me to tell them how to do these, but there isn't much I can say other than to just open the program and fiddle with it until they've figured it out.

Thanks =)

Wow that's a really amazing work! Excellent subject choice!
What I love in your piece is that's doesn't look like a vector, the gradient are really smooth and the result looks traditional!
Cheers

good work, did you draw that? you did great with the veil...

It's a vector interpretation of a work by the pin-up artist Alberto Vargas, so the idea was his originally. But I did redraw it with vectors, so in that sense, yes, I drew it.

Thanks for commenting. =)

:iconthe-legendary-sword9:
ehh, sorry if i ask, but what's a vector?
and the artist provided u with the idea, or with an outline/sketch?!

and doesn he have his own page/site?!

anyhow, great work, man, i liked it alot.

Vectors are digital shapes created in programs like Adobe Illustrator. You draw them via a system of points and lines that can be combined together to create shapes and whole images like this one. That's a very basic explanation of what they are.

The artist is sadly dead now. This piece was something he drew in the 1930s or '40s (the drawing says 1924, but it's generally thought that he added that date later). I worked from a print I have of the drawing to recreate it in vectors.

You can find his work all over the place, just Google Alberto Vargas.

Thanks for commenting. =)

so, you digitally made the image more.. modernised?

good work. seems very interesting, worthy to be in my faves.
i hope you will do more.

lastly, did you used the original, as a refferenc? just asking.

I guess one could say that I redrew it, using vector shapes instead of the traditional mediums. I did use a print of it as a reference, yes.

Thanks =)
