    Alright, so here are my thoughts.
    Not to diminish anyone’s work, they all look fantastic, but, I have never liked Gradient Mesh that much because it’s nothing but a tool to sample a photo. The challenging part is to make the right grid, which is not that hard after a few trials, the rest is all Select point(A), Eyedropper (i) for the next few hours.
    When I first saw these life-like vectors I thought, “Damn I want to try that too!” And I did. Look at my DeviantArt link and check out the Timberland shoes. Not too bad for my FIRST attempt.
    It only shows that it doesn’t take a lot of skills, but rather, a lot of time in your hands.

    Again, I wasn’t trying to put down people’s work with my comment, but mainly stating how over rated the Gradient Mesh tool is.

    Peace!

      Hello Luigi, so you are saying this starts out with a photo on most of the vectors here? I am such a noob right now I just want it varified, because like you Wow I want to know how to do this, and have no idea yet how to get there, but if it is a photo, I can see the possiblilies of what you say I have the time on my hands!

    Me gusta el dibujo en vector pero no me gusta que parezcan fotografías. Creo que lo bonito es que se note que es un dibujo.

      estoy de acuerdo contigo, pierden la esencia de vector, y lucen solo como una foto ordinaria, solo son mallas de degradado
