Here’s a small post explaining the pros and cons of both vector and bitmap art.

Vector Art

Pros

  • has a small file size
  • the size can be changed easily without loss of quality
  • it is what Flash uses
  • it is easier to change

Cons

  • is not as fast
  • it usually looks like a cartoon

Bitmap

Pros

  • runs much faster than vector art
  • can achieve a more realistic look

Cons

  • loses quality when resized
  • is harder to change and reuse

In the end, the choice is up to you. Go with whichever one you feel more comfortable with.
