The guys at Bohemian Coding have asked me to design a complex vector illustration using Sketch.
Having become a great fan of this tool in the last months, I thought it was a great opportunity to show you all how powerful Sketch is.
It took me 40 hours to complete and I had been using Sketch for about a month when I started this illustration.
As many of you know, Sketch is a simple, very well designed, intuitive and powerful tool aimed to screen designers and illustrators.
It is great for UI/web design and to create vector illustrations in an amazingly easy and intuitive way.
I am absolutely convinced that easy to grasp tools like Sketch can help many more people achieve high quality results, since the learning curve is really short and understanding and finding things around is quite easy due to its simplicity and focus.
Please, check versions @x2 and full view attached.

Thanks for your amazing work Isabel, it's a pleasure working with you.
Wow, that is crazy good.
Woah. Great work!
I think Adobe Fireworks has now a powerful competitor... on the Mac side (no competitors on the Windows side, unfortunately)!
Great work, btw!
Sketch on the Mac is what Adobe should have done with Fireworks on both Win and Mac: fast-paced development, focused on UI design (no bloat like in Photoshop or Illustrator), easy to use interface, powerful vectors, ask users for features then implement them...
Amazing work. I have been using Sketch over these last few days and would love to see how something like this comes together. Have you considered a video/screen capture of your process?
This is so great. I love it!
This is superb. Take me for a spin!!
My god this is amazing. Can you share the .sketch file so those of us that have just migrated from Photoshop to using Sketch can dissect/reverse-engineer it (err..rather, reverse-design) and learn from it?
@Samihah Azim - Sure. I'll attach it during today for you all to download. Cheers and thanks.
Amazing work Isabel!
Now we know this is the afterlife of Adobe Fireworks :)
@Juan Real Yeah, we know... but it's sad that Sketch will never be available on the Windows platform... If it were, then Adobe would have been doomed! Who will ever want to use bloatware like Photoshop for UI design, if there are such amazing focused apps like Sketch?
P.S. "would have been"? hmm, my English is not very strong, hopefully this grammatical tense makes some sense;-)
Crazily insane. Lovin' this, nice work, Isabel!
Great illustration, very impressive!
Agree with all of the comments, Sketch is great but if it never has windows support it'll never truly compete with Adobe, purely because you cannot force everyone to use a Mac :/
I really REALLY want to use it, but all devs I know use PC's so I can't hand over files to them. Maybe if it had some sort of way of creating a photoshop compatible file or something, that might go some way...
Isabel, that's a crazy vector you've done here, awesome render here.
@Michel Bozgounov let's be serious 2 minutes, sketch is a very small competitor to adobe fireworks, fw has a lot of features that make it very powerful that sketch doesn't have actually plus the ui of sketch looks like word...
maybe in a near futur sketch will turn into an awesome competitor but it's actually not
@Rich Smith Not trying to be a Sketch die-hard, but out of curiosity for the process: why do you send Photoshop files to the devs? Thanks.
Whatever tool you used, you have just great skills @Isabel :)
Wow, this is so awesome! Great job Isabel!
@Jocelyn Richard because they are the ones who chop up the PSD's for front end build.
@Rich Smith Ok! I'm not used to webdesign workflows, I thought that the designer did this slicing and handed the bits to the devs. Mystery solved.
Awesome! You're moving the Sketch to the next level.
