The purpose of this project was to challenge myself to create a vector graphic that looked photo realistic using only Adobe Illustrator.
The main objective was to create a vector graphic that resembled a photo. I needed to focus closely on the details, and then find a way to achieve the same resemblance using the vector based program. I wanted to prove to myself that my skill set could evolve, and that a photo realistic graphic could be created in Adobe Illustrator.
I’m pleased with the outcome of this personal study. I learned a lot of new capabilities in Illustrator while working on this. Looking at it now (a few years after it was completed) I know that I can refine it much more to create an even more realistic look. Stay tuned for an updated project…
