There is always a tendency in humankind to learn new things to quench their interest to know more applying their new ideas. Even in the field of art, varieties of new forms are invented and new generation of artists show their keen interest in those sectors. Vector art is one of them. Many may not hear about this but it has gained a huge popularity among artists. Vector art painting is basically digital art painting in two dimensional image. It is very high resolution painting. It has mainly two types of graphics – raster and vector. Vector images are made with plenty of pixels whereas raster images are made with only a number of fixed pixels. It is said that vector art painting is the most stylish painting than any other printing techniques.
Vector art painting are based on points, lines and curves. There is a grid of pixels what anybody see as images which are actually bitmaps and each pixel has a value. The problem with this is that if anyone zoom this in enough, they can see the pixels and that is how anyone can get grainy images. However, a vector does not have this problem because this is an image represented by a number of equations. Instead of line being a bunch of pixels in a row, a vector represents it as an equation which shows the direction of the line, where it begins and ends and its length. This are great for scalability.
Vector arts can be used in a wide variety of ways. Since this graphic stay sharp at any size and are low on file size, traditionally vector format lands itself really well to logos and iconography in print.This can also be used in tv or online or video also. Vector arts are used for line arts, for logos, for creating fonts. Vector graphics were used in games even before raster graphic existed. Oscillographs was used in some of the first video games as screens and the moving ray that would draw vectors on that screen. Some of the early arcade coin-op games used vectors drawn in the same manner on CRT screen. Vectors graphics are infinitely re-scalable without degradation in quality. This graphics are made of lines, fills and stroke. The lines are made of nodes and curves. As a result, they become perfect for reproduction in print at any size, large or small. As this art is created through a sequence of commands or mathematical statements that place lines and shapes in a given two dimensional or three dimensional space. A vector graphic file is usually smaller in size and easier to modify.
There are many programs out there for vector art or illustrations. For the beginner, the highly suggested software is Vectornator. It features a vast array of vector design tool with approachable workplace. If any beginner goes with Vectornator, it will be easier to just learn and design instead of trying to figure out complicated parts that some other software might consist of. There are also some popular vector applications which is also as popular and as helpful for artistic endeavors such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Inkscape. Moreover, one can learn this art from tutorials in online. If you are new to vector design, the most important thing you can do is to start practicing in software that you like and you work to do. There is so much material available in online in a form of tutorials, detailing exactly what you need to do in a text or video format, blog posts, online classes and more. There are some famous vector artists such Yukio Miyamoto, Tom Whalen, SebNiark1, Matthew Skiff, Sam Werczler, Cristiano Siquiera, Christopher Lee, Chris Leavens, Charles Williams, Grzegorz Domaradzki and so on. Their works often make people astonished because of having illusion whether those are 3D or 2D stuffs. There is no wonder that this will go a long way.
