at least 113 layers from what i can see here.... you surely had a lot of patience. I don't care if pixels can be seen at a zoom the colours and concept are outstanding. It would have been nice to have recorded how you did this (at least a few layers not all of them :) )

this is a vexel, not a vector. still beautiful though.

thank you :) form what i remember it immediately becomes a vexel once you put brush strokes in it or anything else besides vector shapes, which in this case doesnt apply :) This was done in PS which is a raster program yes, but everything you see in this image is formed by vector shapes, absolutely nothing flattened/rasterized. And i mean everything :D

i dunno, PS is a raster program, and even if it`s vexel shapes, if you zoom, at one point you will have pixels (at least that`s what they taught us in my graphic design program).
just being picky i guess XD

Photoshop has vector tools (although they aren't as fully features as Illustrators) and as long as you don't rasterize the path-layers, you get real vectors. The thing with shape layers is a hybrid: the entire layer is filled with pixels and a vector clipping path is used to define the shape...this way you can get pixel-smooth gradients with sharp vector outlines that don't pixelate. Either way, the method he used here was not vexels.

ahh i see..I usually use Illustrator for Vector work...I can see the advantage of using Photoshop though for blending layers.

Craaazy amount of layers. What's the color box with the slider to the right of the layer name? I've never seen that in PS before ^^;;

Great work but what a waste of time ! If you don't like how Illustrator handles blending, my advice is to switch to Inkscape ! Using so many layers and Photoshop to draw vectors is just the wrong way, but the result is quite good.

Reasons not to use bitmap editing tools (PS, The GIMP...) to draw vector images :
* You have to deal with thousands of layers :P
* Shapes have to be flattened, so can't be edited
* The whole drawing process is a nightmare, but is great way to test you patience. 3 days ? I still can't believe it :shocked:
* Bitmaps can't be zoomed in when a vector image don't have a size, I could use your work as a wallpaper but my desktop is too large for it :(
* Good vector-based softwares like Inkscape have everything an artist need, even great blending effects, but you first have to learn how to use them. I think you should give Illustrator an other chance, or try an other software. You probably spent too much time using PS and now you stick with it for the wrong reasons because switching to an other tool seems too painless. Switch ! Trust me, you won't regret it !

Anyway, great work. It's inspiring ! :orange:
