Here’s a little bit of a different take on my usual digital process. Typically when I work digitally, I’ll go from sketches to “inking” in Illustrator, then do the coloring in Photoshop. For this piece, I wanted to try to keep the whole process in illustrator to see how it would turn out and if it would make things any quicker. I started by sketching, inking and then adding some shadows using a pen tablet and the brush tool in illustrator. After that I used the pen tool to create shapes of solid color on a layer under the “inks”. Overall, it wasn’t any faster or slower than my usual process…just different.
