In this post, we will look at 35 examples of beautiful vector cartoon-style art, and they are all free to download as well. Let’s start with a brief explanation of what vector is and how it compares to other types.
Vector vs. Bitmap
Vector graphics are images that are created using lines and mathematical formulas and represent one of the two major graphic types, with the other being bitmap. So what’s the difference and why is vector based artwork better?
Vector-based objects can be scaled up or viewed up close and they do not lose any quality because the basic mathematical formulas that determine how to draw the image remain the same.
Bitmap graphics, on the other hand, are made up of pixels of varying colors and transparency and are resolution-dependent and therefore cannot be scaled indefinitely without degrading quality.
