Vector Graphics - The Quality of Our Work
How our drawings are made

This may look like a scan or a painting done in Adobe Photoshop or Corel Painter, but in reality it is a vector drawing made entirely in Adobe Illustrator.
And it has been saved as EPS version 8 (to make it accessible to people with older software versions). The version 8 is the oldest one that supports thumbnails and preview of the images.

You can grab and extract single elements from it,

change colors, ......

blow them up at any size and do all the good things that can be done with a vector drawing.

 

All CDs (except Vol. 12 #412) contain our drawings made in Adobe Illustrator using a Wacom graphic tablets and only two tools: The Pen Tool and the Calligraphic Brush Tool
The Pen Tool
All drawings are composed of closed paths (shapes of solid colors) drawn with the Pen Tool.
Calligraphic Brush Tool.
The drawings that require the look of real penwork or brush strokes include parts of the drawings made with the Calligraphic Brush Tool. Drawings made with this tool do not always display correctly when opened using other software. They also are not very “stable” when extremely resized. Therefore, all strokes made with the brush in our drawings are subsequently expanded and they appear and behave just like normal close paths.

 

Our work is clean and well organized.
Users proficient with Adobe Illustrator or other graphic illustration software can use the Layer Manager (or a similar panel) to single out elements, change color scheme and basically modify the images any way they want.

For all the other customers we include the exports to other files formats

WMF, the standard vector format for Microsoft Word and other Office applications. WMF images are bright and crisp without any pixels while keeping the size of the files considerably small.

TIFF, the industry standard for raster format. Almost every CD includes a version at 600dpi;

GIF, the web format for images in solid colors. Almost every CD includes Gif which also supports transparency.
