As Paul Gambaccini says, "we've lost 20 years of good records" Nobody is perfect and 27 is way too young to die.

We were initially worried and looked it up... apparently dandelions are good for dogs because they help with their livers... who would have thought? Anyway, you can catch the tutorial of this over on VectorTuts+, very detailed tutorial on how create this long multi tone fur which is a similar method to say doing short hair for portraits. As well as how to create quicky dandelions! From my own stock the image of Shelley and dandelions were reference free. 100% Vector in AI CS5 :D Tutorial link: http://vector.tutsplus.com/tutorials/illustration/creating-a-detailed-furry-dog-portrait-with-art-brushes-vector-premium-tutorial/ Thu, 16 Jun 2011 08:19:59 -0400 The Vector Fairy http://shadowness.com/ChewedKandi/the-vector-fairy <a href="http://shadowness.com/ChewedKandi/the-vector-fairy"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/79809/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Stop featuring posterized traced vectors Shadowness... it's not a display of creativity, it's just a sign of skill. It makes vector and vexel artists look bad. People have already began associating these vectors as vexels - they are not! Please do the vector community a favour and stop featuring these images.
