Hi,

I’ve been trying to find some information on creating the style of illustration show in the pictures. Some people told me it’s just done by creating shapes but it looks a bit more detailed than that. I would appreciate any information that would help me figure this out.

These TUTORIALS will offer the basics. In some of your examples, noise and/or brush tool stippling was used to give that vintage effect.

If you're looking for something more specific, let us know.

Thanks for the reply. I looked through a lot of those and they do have some useful information.They create vector images from regular ones but nothing about how to do this type of illustration. As I mentioned I was told theses were done using shapes but this looks more detailed than just using the shape tool.

I think they used Illustrator and maybe then imported in in Photoshop to give the effect IamSam was talking about. If I do vector art, I always use Illustrator and I play a lot with the pen tool and and use the shape tool sometimes. If you're a beginner, I would recommend this video
and then to better understand the magic of the pen tool and Illustrator :
. I learned how to use Illustrator a year ago, and it wasn't easy and it takes a long time to do a great job, but it's worth it.

I think I messed up as far as what I was referring to. My question was actually about how to draw characters like the ones shown.The question about style was more about drawing than effects.

The Pen Tool is what you use to draw the characters. I would use the Pen Tool almost exclusively to create any of the examples, in their entirety, that you have posted.

In my personal opinion, the examples you have offered above were created in Photoshop only and not in Illustrator. The confusion is with the term "vector". It's true that Illustrator is a vector program and Photoshop is rastor based. Photoshop's shape tools are considered to be vector that create vector containers with rastor content. This makes them scale-able without aliasing, but they are not true vector. They are certainly acceptable if scaling is a consideration.

I would recommend using Photoshop for these types of illustrations.............but they can certainly be done in Adobe Illustrator.

I know this is late but thanks for the replies.



This type of art is foreign to me and probably can be done in Photoshop but from what I've seen and read many of the artists doing this style use Illustrator .My question was mainly geared toward creating the actual characters.I've yet to find a tutorial that explains how to do it in this style.

Not probably...........absolutely can be done with Ps.

Yes, we have stated that you can use Ai. This was never in dispute.

Nonsense, you have been linked to MANY tutorials that explains exactly how to do this style in both Ps and Ai.
