Illustration Friday - Smoke
Cover and inside spread for America's Community Banker magazine. This was a combination of an oil painting scanned and then worked on top of in Illustrator. Then those Illustrator shapes are exported into Photoshop. I wanted to use the mediums for what they are best at.
Oils - natural texture, brush strokes
Illustrator - exact, sharp, easily edited detailed shapes with gradients
Photoshop - combining the two together, the smoke and final color adjustment.
