Elliott Ness Illustration Video
This is a process video of an illustration I finished a few months ago for Inside Business Magazine. I work primarily in Painter and Photoshop with an Intuos III Wacom tablet. I compose dozens of layers while slowly building form and color, similar to the way I used to work with acrylics. I actually find that the digital process allows me greater control over the finished look compared to my acrylics and oils. The biggest downside is that I don't have an original painting when I'm done.
