When creating a typical illustration piece I start out drawing thumbnails and working my way to a hand drawn sketch which I then move on to the computer and use the sketch as a guide in making a line drawing, working out the line weight and size and organizing layers. From there I figure out a color scheme. Once that is place I add details such as shadowing, highlights and texturing in enhancing the image leading to a final piece.
My goal with a lot of my illustrative work is to not only solve a visual problem, but also to help tell a story, as either an individual piece or as part of a larger human centric product or service.
