Mini rose vector illustration, drawn and rendered in Illustrator using gradient mesh objects. Individual meshes are used to build the structure of the shading. Shading with gradient mesh objects can produce a depth that rivals that of masking and rendering in Photoshop. Without texture, the effect is often so smooth as to be more of a stylized feel. The benefit of vector is that the rendered illustration can be scaled up or down with no loss of quality.
