I come across a lot of great tutorials online all the time and lately I have been wanting to get in the mix a bit. Not necessarily making full on tutorials, but at least showing my process a bit. So here it goes.
My brother is getting married and he recently asked me to put together some art for his "Save the Date" postcards. His only input was for it to have a comic strip look to it. I immediately knew I could make something good in Adobe Illustrator and I was off...
My first step is to locate some good images for me to draw from. Facebook is always good for that. I don't need anything high res, just enough to get the idea.
After I find my photos, I want to think about what this person's strongest features are, because accentuating those will really help their personality shine through in the cartoon form. After that I can start to sketch.
