Recently I've been experimenting with vector files. This is mainly due to work I've been doing in college (graphic design mostly) where vectors really do pay dividends due to their ability to be resized without loss in quality. After getting to know Illustrator a bit better and having a play etching photos on the Laser Cutter, I thought'd I'd try and vectorise one of my photos.
The result of this experiment was far better than I was hoping for, and has caused me to go a little crazy with converting some of my photos to vectors. While the results are not as detailed as the original photo, they do have a feel of their own, with many of them being reminiscent of oil or acrylic paintings as opposed to photographs. They also have the advantage of being able to be scaled to any size without loss in quality, perfect for printing on some of the more crazy printers released in recent years.
I've uploaded a few of them and will continue to put them up as I make 'em, the one thing I ask of you is to tell me what you think of them.
Do you prefer them to the originals?
Do you hate and loathe them completely?
Or are you indifferent?
If you could let me know you thoughts I would be grateful beyond measure (well... grateful anyway).
