It has been 27 years since the representative vector software, Adobe Illustrator, was released. Vector software is more tuned for drawing compared to point software and analog and is difficult to learn and operate. An example of a difficult technique in the program is the Bezier curve. This technique for setting coordinate points for drawing a curve is something that takes time even for those skilled at it. However, there is no end to the people attracted by the usefulness and beauty of these curves. REOspikee is a professional illustrator active in Japan who uses Bezier curves in her illustrations. REOspikee is also active as a TOM Special Creator.
REOspikee uses Bezier curves in Adobe Illustrator to draw slightly sexy and cute girls. She nimbly draws the emotions of girls with a touch that she freely controls the power of for each artwork. She mainly focuses on character designs for CD jackets, idol collaborations, and more, and she supervised the Mune Kyun Exhibit themed after the ‘80s. Beginning on Oct. 10, REOspikee will participate in Vectorial Love, an exhibit of vector art created by illustrations who love vector for the young generation of illustrators and designers and for spreading the fascination of Bezier curves.
