    Gimp isn't a vector tool, but you can use it to make images similar to those you posted (you should post credits for the creators as well). Here are some Gimp tutorials, but I didn't find one specific to vectoring. Once you learn the tools in Gimp (pen tool), you can use a tutorial for vectoring in general, and apply it to your software. Also, look into masking and layers. Good luck.

    Adobe Illustrator is a great vectoring program. Here is a link to some tutorials on vectoring.
