Kelly Brook update


Almost on the final leg(?) of the illustration of Kelly Brook which I started vector-tracing over a week ago in my spare time.

I’ve learned a lot by using the gradient mesh and transform mesh tools and my anchor point tweaking has improved tremendously.

Its been an experience working this way as my normal output seldom includes so much gradient work but its handy to know if something of this type crops up again.

Keep watching for the final illustration. Feel free to make suggestions for the background (keep it simple).

Kelly Brook Vector Pin-Up

After a successful re-rendering of Girlz, I decided to embark on an epic vectorisation of a photo of Kelly Brook.

It is now a scientifically proven fact that Kelly Brook has the perfect body.

Scientists at the University of Texas say that her perfect waist to hip ratio, which happens to be 0.70588253, makes her visually very attractive.

The research has proved that the waist to hip ratio is the secret to attraction. The lower the ratio, the perfect the figure.

Measuring your waist at the narrowest point and dividing it by the measurement of widest point of your hips calculates the ratio.

Anyone around the 0.7 mark has the visually most attractive body.

So, what better way to reproduce her than in Illustrator?
