The other day I decided to start up on a new project, you know, to stay sharp. I don’t think I’ve ever made that many clipping masks in my life. If you enjoy taking on tasks that require lots of patience and making tedious adjustments for hours on end, then making a vector drawing may be just what you’re looking for.
A good definition of vectors: “Vectors are any scalable object that keep their proportions and quality when sized up or down. They’re defined as solid objects, and can be moved around in full, or grouped together with other objects. Vectors can be defined by mathematical and numeric data. So vector art is anything that’s created in Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, Flash or other “vector” illustration programs.” In case you didn’t know.
With that said, vector drawings are essentially images made up of these different shapes individually layered on top of each other. You can find some great tutorials on how to create your own vector drawings here
It also usually helps to have an image to work off of.
