Since there are so many fantastic pirate illustrations already and fall is just around the corner, I decided on a lumberjack character for my illustration. Here's my initial sketch created in Photoshop using my Wacom tablet and the great brushes provided in the class downloads section.


Bringing this into Illustrator, I started the process of outlining all the shapes that I'd be working with and eventually bring back into Photoshop.


These are the shapes and colors originally imported into Photoshop before refining and experimenting with various other palettes.


And here's the final render!


I decided to go with a simple background of mountains and trees overlayed with a paper texture to give it a more vintage and hand drawn feel.


I really enjoyed this class and have learned so many new techniques that I can't wait to incorporate into future projects. Thanks so much Matt for a great class and hope you guys enjoyed my project!
