From the pencil drawing to the vector graphic

A little work for a friend: a flying robot to illustrate a competition (E=M6) made in 2001 or 2000. The competition’s purpose was to design and build a robot for bursting balloons!!! The engineers are definitely understandables, aren’t they? The carambar is a vitally required adding. Sugar is the best nutrient for the brain!

The pencil use is not the best tool to create a sharp illustration. But with a good software and a lot of endurance, the result was workable to illustrate the student newspaper or the facebook. In fact, the PCs were so slow that the illustration retouching was never-ceasing. Fortunately I was not in charge of this part 🙂 My task was drawing accurately as much as possible the character! Here are an instance using a pen for the outlines and Conte pencils for the tones.

Finally in 2005, I learned to use vector graphics editor application like Illustrator! So pleasant and handy! The drawing is sharp, the tones are perfect and the picture is scalable indefinitely without degrading.
