Vector Vixens, Belgian Béziers

  • What is it with Illustrator artists and scantily clad pinups? Paul Bush creates amazingly realistic portraits of women. To give others guidance, he goes into some depth in his gradient mesh tutorial. Pretty cool to see that the work really is all vector. Wayne Forrest works a similar vein, as does Halim Ghodbane. And at Deviant Art you can see Ussa Methawittayakul’s portrait come together step by step. [Via]
    Of course, maybe all these vector women in Illustrator shouldn’t come as a surprise: as this history of Illustrator demonstrates, Venus is the OVB: Original Vector Babe. [Via]
  • Belgian illustrator Geert De Clercq does terrific technical renderings in vectors, as well as organic images using more traditional materials. Veerle Pieters offers a brief interview and samples of Geert’s work on her site.

    There is no denying the technical excellence of Paul’s work, but there is something ‘missing’… the women do look like mannequins… albeit very attractive mannequins… whereas Wayne Forrest and Halim Ghodbane’s stuff is quite disturbingly real.
