The Squirrel Is Out To Get Me




I'm still a novice at illustration, but this picture turned out so nice its hardly embarrassing at all! I'm posting it in stages so you can see how it progressed. If you or your sister has any suggestions on technique I'd be very happy to hear them!

I'm new to Illustration, well as far as learning the techniques to bring them to life.

One your sktech is created, is it best to just upload it and color it via Photoshop/Illustrator? Or to color with pens, scan then play with it on the computer?

As I'm still unskilled in illustration myself, all I can say is that you have to experiment on you own with as much media as you can. There's no one "right" way to do anything- you just have to keep fiddling around until you get something you like, both traditionally and digitally.
