Poison

 

So impressed with AD....had to resort to embedded files with this one but handled 1000's of vector objects brilliantly..:)

 

Again based on a sketch from 2017 Inktober Project

At first i thought it was a "painted" image due to all the detail and atmosphere lighting/exquisite shading... Fantastic work Stuart.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks MEB...I enjoyed doing the detailing...but the lighting was a bit of a pain!...I resisted the temptation to take it into AP and use the lighting filter..but found you can mimic it using layer effects settings and graduated fills.

Beautiful. Doing it all in vector is amazing.

That's insane! Laborious, but it's worth the time. The wireframes look as impressive as the work itself.

 

 

Yeah!....you are not wrong......

 

But I really enjoyed working on this one even though it took me a couple of weeks (not everyday!)...I employed the same principles to [Screech] but obviously was a much smaller project.

 

I have really been impressed with the way AD performed... and it's just gets better with every new build ....just and example of what can be achieved...looking forward to @Ben Mammoth project being integrated in next version..awesome!...stuff.

 

It does look more complex than it actually is.

 

The small section of 'background scaled' can be used to explain some of the process:

 

Sections built separately of which the above example is just one, These are then combined/layered in a master drawing (either as group or embedded file)

moved to embedded files as eventually was slowing down when adding vector objects..but I was really impressed with how the Software coped with so many vector objects..nice!:)

 

1. It has a repeating pattern base pasted into a shaped coloured vector object.These were originally created for the Texture Paint Brushes (There are [720+240 sketch] of these brushes I only uploaded 120!) I used Symbols to create a lot of patterns that tessellate for the Base Texture of brushes...I gives you the advantage of scaling and repeating block building without too much extra work...apart from having to break the symbol link to edit and re-colour.

 

I added a small number of these as resources recently [Texture Paint Brush Assets]

 

2. Add overlay of hand drawn grass objects...re-colour, overlap and vary opacity for effect (Creating a viable grass look puzzled me for a while!):)

3. Add overlay of hand drawn /plant/mushrooms objects. remembering to set internal objects to scale with parent (omit using outlines) These extend beyond lower patterns to make it more realistic

4. Adjust transparency for each object to blend into lower layers 

5. Use subtle (paste inside) tinted/transparent directional blends into larger stacked objects for depth and variety(This can be a bit time-consuming.) 

 

Mushrooms and Plants are all hand drawn...This take some time....but once you have all the vector objects it is easier to experiment with something visual.(like building your own garden)

 

There was only a couple annoying issues

a. had to keep turning off the lighting effects layers as they are full screen rectangles with blends to try to mimic lighting effects in AP (Setting effect to Glow or linear light seemed to work best for me)

b. Zooming into small objects kept blurring screen and returning to sharp vector..I think something along those lines were addressed in latest beta...(It was a bit too late to switch to beta version for this drawing...)

 

Looking forward to the next one!:)

No problem, Stuart. I'm quite sure it will be well worth the wait. :)

You have my awe! Great detail and great results, Stuart.

I hope we see this in Spotlight, sooner or later. :D

Best regards!

Added first set of Raster Brushes created from the vectors of Poison...Started with the Mushroom...!

 

30 Brushes added to Resources:Poison Set 6 [A]

 

Used them to experiment with creating raster version of objects in the drawing:
