I feel really bad that the vector made it to front page, while the original didn't get enough attention. Doesn't 'vector' mean 'trace'? So basically, a traced version made it to the front page while the real version didn't?

I think the idea is great and the more soft tones suit this piece far better than the hard lines the vector used.

Actually no, vector graphics aren't just traces. Vector graphics are heavily used in the commercial world to create things like logos and to show off products in advertising etc.

The the MLP fandom, the majority of vectors made are 'traced' from a screenshot of the show, but they're not made to be able to say "Hey guys look, this is mine, I came up with this and I'm so cool!", they are in fact made so that they can be used as resources, spread around and re-used. I used quotations over the word traced up there because the word tracing implies a direct copy, like putting a piece of paper over a drawing and tracing through it. When we do vectors from the show we aren't copying exactly. We're adding in missing details, fixing animation errors, anything we can to do the work that the animators just can't to make that particular character's pose or the scenery stand out and given attention.

When we 'trace' something, we do it only to complement the original and to sometimes give it a different style which appeals to other people.

Then of course you have vectors which are not traced in the slightest. If you look at the work by *ZuTheSkunk, there is no tracing involved there at all but all of his work is vector.

Others (including me) make quick little sketches on paper which are missing a lot of the details and then vector over them, making a unique pose, character, object or whatever the thing is but in the show's style.

Also the actual show is made in Flash, from vectors.

So... basically what you're telling me is that for the most part, it is just tracing, right? That's what I really don't get. It's either tracing or it's not. There's no grey area there. I'm sorry if you're offended by the fact that your 'vector' doesn't do it for me quite as much as the original, but to me, tracing is tracing. There is no 'improvement'. It just feels like a slap in the face to the original creator of the piece. It's all fine and dandy that they let you use it, but I'm just saying I see little effort in making a nearly exact copy.

If it isn't traced and is done completely by yourself, I don't find it as bad. I have no issue with people using vectors to help them draw better (as long as they aren't tracing the vectors). I just don't believe they belong on an art site that was made to show art you did 100% by yourself and one that is against most traces (but when you call them 'vectors', it's suddenly okay???) and don't think it's fair that original pieces get buried underneath vector work.

The point of a vector is that it's scalable to any resolution. They don't make it "easier to draw"; in fact vector-based editing has its own learning curve that's significantly different than traditional art.

So... yes it is more or less a trace, but it also isn't. It helps to understand the medium before making a judgement.

I'm trying to understand the medium, but I just don't get it at all. So basically, vector artists trace screenshots and whatnot, 'smoothing' out the lines, and then other artist copy and paste the vectors, resize them, and use them in their comics? Or do they just re-draw the vectors by hand in the scale they want? Because if it's the first one, I've lost a lot of respect from pony comic artists that use vectors.

Take a look at this [link] for some examples- vectors are not limited to traces. A lot of people like to do traces because they see something from the show they really like and want to make a high quality vector version of it. It's also a good way to learn the show's style so they can make vector versions of their favorite traditional art. Some users are good at making their own sketches and then turning those in to vectors. If you want to see what kind of cool things people can do with vectors, check this out as well [link]

Not 'always' traces? That's my point. I have absolutely no problem with vectors that are just used in order to learn anatomy and used for references, but that's ONLY if they weren't traced from stills or from other people's work. I don't know when it somehow became acceptable to trace, but when I was growing up I was taught that tracing someone else's work is considering stealing and it doesn't help you improve much at all. Drawing something from reference is fine, but tracing is not.

Uh, I never said 'not always traces'. Vectors are anything drawn with vector tools in vector capable programs, like Illustrator, Inkscape and Photoshop.

Do you tell people who color existing sketches you disapprove of their work too? It's the same concept, except with a vector you end up with none of the original art in the result.
