This illustration started out as a sketchbook drawing. I thought the idea would make an interesting finished piece. It was put together in Adobe Illustrator first, and finished in Photoshop. There’s things both apps do well and some things they don’t. My process is usually to use Illustrator to block in and Painter or Clip Studio Paint to add the bitmap effects and painting.
