Vector Art: My Process
1. Scan sketch into Photoshop. Save as jpeg. Receive approval from client. In this case, ChickaDEE magazine.
2. "Ink" the sketch using the brush tool in Adobe Illustrator. Wacom tablet required.
3. On a lower layer, placed beneath my "Ink" layer (so that said layer is visible), I create polygon shapes with the pen and pencil tool to block in the colour. This is what those shapes look like with the Ink layer not visible.
4. Save file. Send via email. Invoice client.
