I am over joyed that I get to feature a vector artist. Mel has a great range of works from unique looking vector portraits, right the way to avatars. I really don't get to see much vector art so when one comes along you can bet I am going to feature it.

It is something most of us never think about but someone created the default avatars you see on forums and comment boxes. Mel has given me a new appreciation to these little works of art. These designs are very well executed and look great as a set.
The above image is my favourite in Mel's gallery. The vector style looks very distinctive and eye catching. I love the 3D look to this style.
Being somewhat of an anime and manga fan, another thing that I love about Mel's portfolio is the cartoony images. The graphical nature of these can have a multitude of applications and I would love to see Mel get lots of commissions in this style to expand his portfolio. Be sure to request a commission from Mel via his website http://www.melartugue.com/p/contact.html
One of Mel's more recent work is for an up and coming game project. I love the range of characters in this and I love the style.
Over all I cant wait to see this artist grow and produce even more great and unique pieces of art. Be sure to check out Mel's full portfolio http://www.melartugue.com/
