Just finished a piece called 'Adrian'. I honestly haven't been working on it for more than 5 hours but it's not to bad for that amount of work. I want to experiment more with that style of lose design and vector art but the Mac is just so fricking slow that I can just barely get by with one program open at a time. The pic of Adrian was cleaned up in Photoshop and key areas lightened before I brought it into Illustrator to vectorized. Then I had to get friendly with the nodes to clean it up.
The final composite was done in Photoshop because it had all the nifty brushes that I needed for the vines.
Anyway. I'm going to make myself a cup of tea :)
