D+G Vector and Drawing by lee25 D+G Vector and Drawing by lee25
Combined the vector paths with the sketch for comparisson.

[One of the 4 sketches I did for a collab between me and Aeiko/ Wirestyle for Dolce & Gabanna to be printed in a book.
To see the final image: [link]

The idea and inspiration for the typeface treament came from the baroque and rococco period, this was becasue this style of decoration emobodied the kind of decadence thats often asscociated with the fashion industry.]

Weird, looks pretty much the same.

Oh look! It's a step-for-step tutorial Ö

I don't usually go on DeviantART anymore... However when I see someone post such an ill-informed comment I can't help but to log in and say something... If you look at his profile, he's started with a sketch, he's referred to the style that he's trying to achieve from this artwork and also, the tutorial uses pre-made swirls and decorations to add to the text, however he sketched his out and used the sketch as reference...
Next time don't be so quick to declare that someone just used a tutorial and make sure you're not wrong first =)

I didn't imply that he used the tutorial. My point is that this is old and overused.

If there's a tutorial for making something similar to what he did, only so much faster, it's simply dead work.

Your arguments mean nothing to a real artists, because they mean nothing to a real customer. Who cares if he did all of this himself and took hours and hours for sketches, developing the idea and finally coming out with this final output if I can do the same in 30 minutes with the help of this tutorial and also everyone else too. A customer doesn't care if you took 10 minutes or 10 days for a picture, also he wouldn't notice the slightest difference between the two results. No matter how hard you worked on something, if it's not original and unique it's not worth shit.
