Yeah correct I did her in flash. It's the only vector program I have.
I once tried Illustrator but I was too stupid for it and it totally confused me. I donít know if you ever tried it. In flash you can draw but you donít have pixels-everything is vector. In Illustrator you have to transform some shapes. You canít draw a ball with a line and fill that shape. So you have to draw the outline of a ball and under that layer you have to transform a shape so that it looks like your ball is filled or something like that. Thatís really stupid in my opinion and sadly that is really the way Illustrator goes.
I really thought about getting/trying freehand since
Flash can be real bitch.
Nell looks so much better with coloured outlines. In the first version of her she had black outlines. Now when you change the outline colour you can see that the lines are overlapping which doesnít look really nice. Since you donít zoom in or take a closer look you wonít notice that very ugly effect.
When I draw a line with the line tool and I draw a second line over that other line the just drawn line gets UNDER the older line. Why? Thatís so stupid.
One example: I draw the linework (black outline) for some character then I draw some parts with a green line where the shading goes. Then I fill the areas and delete the green lines and everything looks good in flash. I go to test movie and I suddenly see some green lines at my character. When I go back to flash I canít see those green lines but when I test the movie I see them. SO I have to delete my black lines again to get the green lines which I can delete then as well. Thatís so annoying.
Well itís Nell from Advance Wars. Thatís why the topic title is ďNellĒ. I thought you guys know her. So when people complain about her chin or breast I think they are wrong. I mean she is a character from a Nintendo video game. I donít think Nintendo creates wrong looking characters. It I think I created a good vector version of her.
Nell is my favourite female video game character. She is so lovely, isnít she? I like her a lot and Advance Wars wouldnít be so much fun if there was no Nell.
So you could call that picture fan art if you want.
