this is more of a stream-of-thought illustration, related to ‘am i here.’ digitizing this sketch took a lot longer than normal.

i spent a great deal of time creating brushes for illustrator based on my smudges and pencil marks — a lot of time. it’s definitely a process i’ve learned from. & i’m sure i’ll spend months more making improvements and new versions.

i hope to continue with the custom brushes throughout the series, & i’m even considering revising portions of existing pages… what?!?

a long around to go from a pencil sketch to digital drawing with sketch-like custom brushes.

how does it compare?
