I'm the VECTOR CV!
What is Vector?
Quoting `ChewedKandi because her definition says it all:
In digital art there are two layer formats: raster and vector. Raster formats are based in pixels and vector is based in paths and points.
When you resize a raster image, you are expanding the pixels. Your program has to try to estimate what the colours would be for the additional pixels created. Due to this, the image loses it's clarity and creates a pixel effect.
When you resize a vector image, you are increasing the distance between the points. Due to this, the image doesn't lose it's clarity and doesn't pixellate.
The key element of vector is that it's infinitely scalable without any quality loss and it's why we love it!
What is a Daily Deviation?
Please read FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
DDs are NOT a prize...they are NOT 'winnable'!
- I only take VECTOR suggestions, I cannot feature anything in other categories or anything else (like scraps). Since Vector is the gallery that I am in charge of, I cannot feature Vexel or Mixed Media work (commonly referred to as a 'Vection' in some dA Vector Groups). In other words, if you suggest work to me that is 95% Vector but has a raster texture overlay or other raster elements (photos, filters done in a non-vector program, etc.), I cannot feature them.
- If the piece has used dA stock art as a reference, and hasn't given credit to the stock artist, I won't feature the piece. I also won't feature work that has been completely traced, either posterise traced or traced directly from a stock source. I want to present Vector art that is creative, original, and shows skill in the Vector medium! The use of stock art as a reference is perfectly allowable, but we want to show the world what the Vector medium is truely all about, and dispell the myths that Vector is nothing but tracing.
- Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months.

How to suggest
Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page
and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the
reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.
I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion .
