40 Most inspiring vector character illustrations

In my previous article, we saw some of the most awesome Illustrator tutorials ever made on the web. If you noticed, there were some really vector portraits as well. These vector portraits are nothing but the vector illustration of a reference photograph created using Illustrator, Inkscape or similar vector graphics tools. What makes them so amazing is the attention to detail given to each stroke in the illustration. This type of vector art requires tonnes of patience and hours of careful work.

Having a unique design is a must to get your visitor’s attention. Vector characters can establish a memorable image of your site in the reader’s mind which stands through the toughest of times.. Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop are a few of the great tools used for creating such a sketchy or hand-drawn feel. As i said, these character illustrations require a lot of skills, time, patience and apart from that, it also requires great understanding of human anatomy. Enormous amount of time goes into drawing the details like hair, face, body posture and facial expressions to to bring the characters to life. One must also look into the details of lighting, shadows and illumination.
