Felt my sweetie belle soda thing wasn't going far enough to imitate vector art for teh luls. I want to make something more interesting but I don't seem to have much inspiration atm. I wind up pixelling something for my tumblr avatar... and I wind up going a direction of imitating vector art. The few times I've seen so-called 'pixel vector art' used aliased line art and huge sizes... if there is such thing as pixel vector, this is what it should look like.

Edit: smoothed it out to the best of my ability. At this point, if it can be smoother, I'm gonna need a visual example of what this can be.

This will probably be my most controversial accident in part by having to work with a huge size but not having motivation to go for a very complex style. In the end, I learned something about the very technique needed to pull off silly stuff like this.

Life goes on...

Preferably not. It was intended for my use.

Whoa, how did you do the AA here? It's stunningly sharp ans smooth.

Well, I'm glad your monitor doesn't butcher up AA colors to make it look rough. Only thing keeping my AA from being perfect is that I have little control of how it presents on other monitors.

As for how I did my AA, I guess I could say that I just replace visibly sharp edges with in-between colors. The visual effect I get are corners that are much more difficult to spot.

Looks good, how many colors is it? How many are for AA?

It was going to be 8 colors, but I added at least three more.

The stunning sharpness of this...the lack of detail, the simplicity of it all...just wow. I thought details make a picture look good...but sometimes simplicity really makes the picture.

Details are overrated. While details can show very good understanding, if you don't know anything about the composition of art, details won't help you out very much. What really makes a picture is composition. There is a reason why hyper-detailed, hyper-realistic photographs aren't always treated like godly pieces of art. Only some photographs are done just right to be considered art and not just some silly facebook profile picture.
