Ain't No Thang

I let Pandora choose my phrase for this project and had a lot of fun working on it. Here's my final illustration "Ain't no Thang but a Chicken Wang" (Outkast).

Here's how I started out -- a mood board for color, lettering styles, and texture inspiration. I always love this step because it gets me excited to jump in and get to work.

Next I played around with some lettering styles and lots of sketches. I tried to take a little extra time drawing here instead of jumping to computer.

Here's the final layout I chose. I don't have CS4 anymore and the live trace options in CS6 just did not translate. I really did give it a shot for the class, but I really cannot get with live trace anymore! I traced the sketch with the pen tool.

Here's the digitized sketch in Illustrator and then in Photoshop, starting to add some shading.

Here's the final illustration again with the textures. I loved this class and the part 1 for sketching and concepting. Thanks!
