And as a bonus, I also did a tutorial on unicorn magic glow a while back you might want to check out if you're vectoring unicorn magic!

And here it is! Part two of the (not really) long awaited tutorial on vectoring! It's more of a presentation of my technique rather than a tutorial but I tried to add pretty pictures and shiny tips to keep you entertained. I hope you can learn something from all of this. ^^

If you see any mistakes, grammar errors and whatnot, please report them to me in the comments.

I don't really like vectoring, I like to draw with pony base. But I will try your tutorial.;)

(reading it carefully).......but i don't get it O_O..........

Hmm...if you're having issues with it, perhaps you should try a different tutorial first.… is an amazing one covering the basics of using the pen tool in Photoshop and there are quite a few other tutorials around the net concerning this.

Do you think my tutorial isn't clear enough in some section? Think anything could be improved?
Wait, are you telling me that the line must must be vectored differently? Like the mouth, I know there are parts were the line breaks off, but dose it have to be very outline?
I'm sorry, but I'm not entirely sure I know what you're referring to. :aww:
I'm asking that if we need to trace the colored line's lines. Like the pic for Lyra's mouth and noes.
I'm so sorry but I'm still not sure what you mean. Are you talking about tracing the mouth strokes? If so, there's nothing different to them than any other part of the vector, just follow your reference, and tweak any odd looking bits...
Definitely gonna try some of your methods ASAP!
