The Evolution of Frankie

She's finished! Frankie is now ready to be printed onto a sidewalk cruiser deck. I've attached the evolution of the piece. It's a bit different from my regular work. I wanted to keep the flow of the PS sketch but I needed the file to be vector.

Step 1 - Sketch onto iPad with a stylus and the Procreate drawing app (http://savage.si/) I love this app!

Step 2 - Import JPG from iPad to refine and plan more of the shapes and colors in PS. I used my new Wacom Intuos5 for this. Again, more love! The new scratchy surface on the Intuos5 makes drawing feel "real".

Step 3 - Import JPG from Ps into Ai and use Custom Brushes, the Blob Brush and some Pen Tool to vector the image and create the export file.

Step 4 - Wait for it to be printed on a skateboard ;)
