I wanted to do something pretty different from my other work, so I did a digital illustration in Photoshop. I started out in sketches in Illustrator to create straight, thick lines that separate the different images.



From there it was a matter of outlining the subjects in black and filling in the colors in different layers.


If you’ll notice, however, this looked super messy, so I spent most of the time cleaning everything up.


Then, I carefully shaded everything using the mixer brush.

On top, I added hashing to make it all look a little darker and grungy.
