I was very excited about Adobe's latest version of illustrator where they have this very cool feature that's called "Livetrace" it converts any jpeg or bitmap file to vector. It works very well for me since i don't have to trace everything in Flash. Here's my first piece using this new feature. Actually the lineart is not mine but from Mr. Miah Alcorn he's one cool character designer who also has a very cool blog. I hope Mr. Alcorn wouldn't mind.
