    Hi Nocturn,

    I don't profess to be any expert, as there are many on here who are quite talented. However, I have had a bit of technical experience, and thought I'd venture to help you out.

    I really like your style - I'd capitalize on your hand illustration as one method. You can either sketch your concept out, trace over it with ink, and then scan in, or you can shade (with dark pencil lines) and scan in. Both hand inking and hand penciling lend a gritty tone to your illustration, with the pencil being more so. Upon scanning in, you can create a seperate layer in photoshop and turn this layer to liner dodge or overlay (not sure on this one without opening up and checking). By creating a layer under your sketch layer, you can color and shade with various blur methods or brush tools.

    Another nice method is to ink and bring into illustrator, and use the auto tracer to convert. You can then color in illustrator, and bring into photoshop for various effects. Or, you can hand trace in illustrator over your sketch guide (which creates a much more precise image).

    Hope this helps.

    This is my entry for this month. Yeah, there's a subtle message there, which I found intruiging. Included inked sketch, illustrator work, and then slight photoshop manipulation for final image.

    almost done

    hi all!
    my butcher its almost done, now i need the backgrounds.
    the idea its to show the butcher as a fashion icon (i´ve never seen a clean and handsome butcher) and take the most disgusting of butchers to another field, absolutly different.
    i would love to know your opinions!

    ruth2m: looking great in it's early stage... can't wait to see where this leads to.

    Response to Equality72521

    Hey Equality,

    One of the other methods I use in Illustrator is a little more labor intensive, but the results can very much be worth it. I'll often sketch out a rough, and then scan it in, or just use it as a visual reference as I create my work in illustrator. If you do scan it in, you can use the shape tool to create your basic square or circle. I'll then take the pen tool, and add anchors onto my shape to being directing (dragging) the anchor along the lines I've sketched out (you do this by using the direct selection tool - the white arrow - as it allows you to pull your anchors around.) The convert anchor tool allows for you to curve your anchors to your liking.

    My back layer will be the black outline, and surrounds the overall shape of the subject matter. Layers upon this will be the detail works - shapes made up to be arms, legs, facial features, etc. Most of the time I'll leave my outlines with a visible color, such as red. Once I've completed all my line work, I'll then go in and color the layers with solids or gradients. You can create a nice shading effect without using gradients, just by building layers one atop the other of varying color shades.

    If you choose, you can also bring your various layers into photoshop to create added shading, or lighting effects. This can be a pretty nice touch to your pieces to finish them off.

    Hope this helps - I know sometimes its a bit difficult reading someones procedure for doing things, unless you can watch them do it
