This happens to be my first "realist" vector drawing. Took a few hours every couple days for 3 weeks, and many, many late nights. One things for sure, this is one for the portfolio. For those who are curious, I've been using vectors for about 6 months, mostly for assignments for classes at the Art Institute of Seattle.
