Here's my vector case study - showcasing my start to finish to my latest pop-deco tribute.
Action & Adventure is what inspired me most for this composition and I decided to interpret that through hard angles, colorful sweeps and high intense lighting.

Phase 1 & Phase 2Imac + Adobe Illustrator + Wacom
NO Tracing, NO Gradient Meshes, NO Plugins, NO Embedded Rasters
Cheers & Enjoy~
As some of you maybe familiar with my process- I don't sketch my ideas on paper
( unless I'm away from my studio- but thinking of getting a wacom cintiq hybrid to solve that issue- :) ).
I prefer to allow the raw energy and excitement to be the driving force and evolve the composition.
So here's 4 quick vector sketches, exploring the possible composition and mood.
The actual vector shapes in outline mode of the final composition.
The many Anchor points and Layers that make up the actual illustration.
I normally stay away from "Custom Brushes"- but I might start to play with them.
For Rocket- I decided to explore just one of the native brushes in Adobe Illustrator CC.
Tribute, deserves a BIG POSSE logo!-LOL!
