Self Portraits

When my mom sent me a Panettone, I did not realize that it would make me look so regal. You see, this Panettone came in a wooden crown type of  container, and my fiancee took a fine picture of me wearing my new headgear.

As you might expect, I used this opportunity to draw myself in many different styles. I used ink wash, digital colors in Photoshop and Illustrator, and just plain brush strokes.

Coloring in Adobe Illustrator

I learned to color digitally in Photoshop, but Illustrator’s coloring interface is quite robust. I’ve been trying to get into the habit of coloring and drawing in illustrator. While Photoshop is near and dear to my heart, I’m becoming quite enamored of Illustrator. Here are some of the vector’s that I’ve created.
