    I suck at vectoring.

    Made a shitty vector.

    Are you sure that's using vectors? It looks kinda' raster to me. Normally, when converting or tracing over, the lines end up looking smoother...

    What program did you use?

    So you traced it with a paintbrush... yep I think you've missed the point. How old are you, 5?

    You should check out this site, it seems to work pretty well:

    http://vectormagic.com/

    Edit: Ah, I didn't notice, can only download 2 free vectors if you sign up, or else you can only download them in png.
