Vector based digitally created portrait of a business pioneer
I just acquired a laptop with a digital pen interface and I’m wasting no time putting it to use and learning what’s possible.
This opens up a new opportunity for me to integrate more of the traditional art I did before the digital revolution into my digital art and benefiting from the advantages of both. I always loved doing portraits so a logical first exercise was a portrait. I randomly chose a business pioneer as my subject thinking that he would be a good example of the type of subject my existing clients might want.
I did my initial sketch in Photoshop and did the final illustration in Adobe Illustrator. I still have a lot to learn, but I consider this a successful illustration and that’s what it’s all about.
