Il­lus­tra­tor re­quired

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

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.
