I would love to see a reoccurring section devoted to Illustrator. I use Illustrator as much as I use Photoshop. I start all my illustrations by hand so that I can feel the life of my characters flow from the pencil. Once I’ve sketched out the details I scan everything into Illustrator so that I can build it digitally to achieve a very precise and crisp line. Then I export it all into Photoshop and do all my rendering. I would say that at least half of my time is spent in Illustrator, and because of that, I would love to see tutorials, tips, and suggestions for that program. Michael J Cole, US Claire replies Michael, your request is duly noted. It would have been good to know if you had a particular Illustrator artist in mind to share their techniques. Do any readers have an artist that they’d like us to approach for a workshop? Let us know.
Reader Michael J Cole has great success creating images like this in Illustrator, and would like a regular section in IFX devoted to the program.
