    For my design class, we had to find a topic off ehow and make a step-by-step newspaper report for it. I chose one of the topics on the Wii so I'm currently working on the main illustration which is the wii console.
    Here's what I got so far..

    I'll post an update once I'm done the vector and the final finished piece [​IMG]

    EDIT: weird, upload didn't work.. I'll reupload it..

    There we go.. for some reason i couldnt save it as a jpeg =/

    Nice vectoring man! I like how it's quite detailed with shadows, and how the buttons on the console become hard to see due to lighting.

    Thanks, this is actually my second vector I've ever done. First one looked like ass though (was a vector of a laptop and the buttons all looked retarded)
    I chose the wii cuz of its simple shape if you didn't realise it [​IMG]

    Yep. All solid colours and gradients with the pen tool. There should have been more gradients and less spot colours but i just got lazy [​IMG]

    Yep no better way to do it than the pen tool, I used to use the 'Auto Trace' feature in illustrator (lame, yes i know) for me logo, but have recently discovered the wonders of the pen tool [​IMG]

    Yeh, I used to use live trace too, but took a computer graphics course last semester and I learned how to use the pen tool from all the assignments we did. It makes everything so much easier.
    The vector without the retarded background took me about .. 3 hours I'd say? Though I was alt tabbing in between Illustrator and a movie [​IMG]
    The background itself took 10 mins maybe.

    So clean and crisp...
    But I'll be nit-picky today. There's only one very small thing I noticed: the labels on the buttons (like the power symbol) are upright, but the text below the buttons are slanted, and they look kinda weird. Other than that, very nice job on this. I especially like the background.

    The symbols are actually slanted, I know, the text doesn't look right though which is because its looked at at an angle but the text was typed normally, i just changed the angle a bit, that was the closest i could make it to look realistic but i guess i didn't pull that off (dont even know if that whole sentense made sense.)

    Dude that is badass. The fact you did it in a mere 3 hours amazes me. I love vector images (when I get my hands on them in vecotr format, not .png), I should start learning the basics.

    Thanks, and jelbo, the .ai file is way too big to upload and most people wouldn't have the software to view it [​IMG]
    Just find an image on the net and try to trace it with the pen tool. As long as you know how to use that tool, you're all set.

    What's the point of going to nintendo.com and copy and paste the image of a wii to this forum? As if we never seen one before.
