wanna ask if anyone has any resources or techniques on how to do vector art?
recently had to come up with a "photoshoot" for one of my school's committees. decided to take a photo of them and convert to vector pics
any ideas how to do it?
i tried the cutout filter in PS, not that impressive.
any other programs that i should use? illustrator maybe?
khairi and the other gurus, pls advise!
oh and for those tee shirts we see selling in far east and stuff, how do they vectorise their pics ah?

You can choose to use automated processes like the cutout filter in Photoshop or trace bitmap in Flash, but like you say, the results will not be impressive.
If you want a stylized vector art, your best bet would be to vectorize the image by yourself... Photoshop, Illustrator, Freehand are some of the applications capable of doing that. The skill comes with practise, and it could be quite daunting if it is your first few trys.
You can go see the vector art section in http://www.deviantart.com/ to see many examples of vector art. All have their different styles and characteristics. Alternatively, you can do a search in Yahoo! or Google... there are many vector art tutorials out there.
As for the tees... those are most likely drawn by the designers themselves.
