I thought I'd share this crash course in creating amazingly hot vector artwork.
Step 1: Required
Alright, well, lets get down to business. A lot of people have been asking me to write a tutorial on how to make crazy vector artwork.
Step 3: Making the rifles
Now, we don't really want any of the details of the rifle... just the basic shape, so using Photoshop, open the image and go to Brightness/Contrast and set the contrast to 70%. Anything higher gives jagged edges.
Note: Depending on your image, (If you are using the same one I'm using) You may have to do other things to get the basic shape of your image. I usually fiddle around with Brightness/Contrast and tthe Cutout Filter (Filters>Artistic>Cutour). But for this image it was surprisingly easy.
Step 4: Colour range
With the rifle now selected for you, cut and paste it into any sized document you want.
Step 5: Arranging the weaponry
I did this by rotating the first rifle with the transform tool, and then I copied and pasted the rifle and hit CTRL-SHIFT-T to apply the transform to the copy. Do this a couple times to rotate each gun the same amount so you get the best results.
Save your image at full size, AS A PNG.
