Some of you can testify to this... I have a restless streak, and I'm bored exceptionally quickly.
Oddly enough, I do have alot of patience.

So while I was bored I decided to score some extra school credits, dust off my graphic tools, and polish my dull skills.

Basis was a picture Mark took of me while we were doing our N11 trip.
(I trimmed it a little...sorry Mo! )



Using adobe Illustrator I traced the picture using different tools. If you're interested, just chat me up.
Sounds easy enough.... takes you a couple of hours to do it right tho.





*edit*
Ok...so I colored it in anyway.

I know it's no masterpiece, altho I really had my heart set on that Indianapolis job HAHA! It helped me pass the time.

sweet job, i like the gradiant effect on the shades, while everything else is just hard black/white contrast. man i swear with those adobe progs a talented person could make anything they want! a friend of mine's girlfriend does color for a few comics, she takes an outline like that and makes it into a whole page, it's amazing!

Yeah I'm experimenting with coloring in a couple of outlines I did.

I've tried several ways of using effects on the images and doing th eoverlay on top...but it looked like crap.

BUT about 20 minutes ago, by accident, I found a trailer of a move that gave me a couple of really cool ideas.

Haha, sorry about that! Would have been a long commute for you anyway ;) Nice work BTW, that stuff takes a lot of patience. Try your hand at coloring and shading in Photoshop and you'll have a really nice piece for sure. Might look cool to drop the photo background back in when you are done with it all...

one you get the hang of illustrator it's pretty simple.
it can get complex going all the layers and such.
i suggest another program to draw stuff, too:
check out alias sketchbook pro
