    These illustrations are so sweet that they almost make me want to believe in a Christian concept of God.

    Really superb work! I love the colors, texture, and lighting you chose.

    What's your process like? (if you don't mind sharing)

    Vector shapes in Illustrator, then texture and light in Photoshop?

    @AJ Getz Glad you like them.

    @Michael Walz Thank you. Process is like you said: Vector Shapes Illustrator, Light and Texture in Photoshop. But there is also lot of back and forth from Illustrator to Photoshop. I copy the vectors as smart objects in PS. I get a overal lighting. Then I open up the smart object and there is a lot of back and forth where I start fine-tuning the high lights and shadows in vector format. Since this peice has a monochrome feel I was able to keep the vector in a greyscale format which made creating shading a such easier.

    Once I have what I want, vector wise I start texturing.

    Hope that makes sense. I'm planning on posting a better process breakdown once I get caught up on some work.

    Easter inspired pieces are my favorite! People go all out for Christmas, but all of Christianity hangs on Easter. I love this series, Joe. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing your process, Joe! I'm always fascinated with how people arrive at the finished product.

    Now if Illustrator only had an "Export to VECTOR .psd" option.

  15. This is the last of four Easter illustrations created for our subscribers at Gracewaymedia.com.

    This set was a stretch and a challenge to pull off but am happy how they turned out.

    Attached is a preview of all four.
