    First Vector Character

    So to be honest, I don't really have a vector program. This was made in Photoshop using shapes. So I would really like some input on how to make it better or to be better at this kind of stuff.

    [spoiler][/spoiler]

    It is my new wallpaper.

    Plenty of vector work is done in PS. I only know of people using Illy and PaintTool SAI as alternatives. But then again, it's not my style, so don't take my word for it.
    Check out the pentool tutorial I posted in your first thread.

    It's alright for a first. And Photoshop is most definitely a vector capable program. Pentool is a very powerful vector tool that a lot of artists prefer using over AI tools.

    Look like a mash up between Squidward from Sponge Bob, and the villain from Pirates of The Caribbean

    I agree with RJ, keep trying.
    There's a lot to be done with lines and pens, my sword thread was a vector.

    You have to keep shadow's in mind as well. Maybe "flail out" the tentacles and add more detail.. not too much seeing as this is vector but some more time with them should help the image out a lot. With the tentacles hanging down so simply makes the image loose dimensionality (Pretty sure i am using the correct term), it makes the character less "real", so to speak.

    Maybe work with posing and giving your character consistent highlights and shadow's from your light-source, wherever that may be.

    Didn't use pen tool or scan it in, that's why I said it is not really a vector. I based it on a drawing I did.
