Perhaps I should name this guy Hector Vector. I know he is simpler than the other monsters I have posted, but the difference is that for the others I started with a drawing. I scanned the drawing, converted the resulting raster lines to vector lines, and then colored in the spaces. For Hector here, I started directly in Illustrator. I learned a couple of new effects today, such as how to get double outlines and how to more smoothly combine different shapes, and so I needed something to try it out on.
